Green botanical wallpaper makes an instant impact in the living room, extending bold pattern behind the TV. A black sofa table splits the lounge from a formal dining area, and provides a place to display books and ornaments.
Two large windows fill the living space with natural light. More daylight streams through a set of glazed doors that lead to the kitchen.
The lounge furniture arrangement is rounded out with a curved wicker chair design that complements a freestanding bookcase and a wooden media unit beneath the TV.
A set of display shelves decorate a blank wall beside the formal dining area. At the centre of the unit, a shallow storage cabinet opens to reveal a small writing desk.
A curved chair is teamed with the concealed home workspace. The stylish chair can be tucked into the corner of the room when the desk is not in use.
Two wicker pendant lights are paired above a wooden dining table and contrasting black dining chairs. The black and rattan chairs seat up to six people.
With the double doors at the back of the room open, the layout between the kitchen and the dining room becomes free flowing.
Beyond the fluted glass doors, a small kitchen table is used for casual dining purposes and coffee.
A dining room pendant light hangs low to the table, providing a visual anchor that separates it from the adjacent kitchen installation.
Walnut base cabinets and appliance housing units give the kitchen a rich tone. White wall cabinets give the kitchen a more open and spacious appeal.
The home entryway is cheerfully defined from the rest of the hallway by a trendy terrazzo floor treatment.
A small entryway table is teamed with an indoor plant and a couple of decorative mirrors to form an attractive vignette.

Moving on to the bathroom, we enter a strong, earthy yellow ochre colour scheme. Striking geometric tiles pattern the bathroom floor, creating a big design statement in the compact space.
The toilet cistern is boxed in by wooden panels that incorporate a cabinet above. In contrast, the neighbouring vanity unit carries a clean white finish with a luxurious white marble countertop. A round mirror is flanked by elegant wall sconces.
The geometric floor tiles carry on into the shower area to achieve an uninterrupted flow.
Fluted panels form a textural wet wall inside the shower enclosure. Recessed shelves hold toiletries conveniently to hand.
