“I’m not a fan of white walls,” declares Khu. “I find that it tends to make a space look like a pharmacy.” True enough, his apartment is devoid of blank white walls. Instead, he adorns most walls with KD veneer panels sporting beautiful woodgrain. His other go-to wall covering is the classic wallpaper. Striped wallpaper with a subtle texture makes appearances in the bedroom and living room, and are essential in tempering the moodiness of the darker woodgrain finish.
That is exactly what he did. The kitchen and main communal zone remain divided, and Khu employed bronze-tinted mirrors for the folding doors to close off the cook space when in use.
Two years on and this designer’s home still looks as good as new and relevant today. Khu has definitely managed to create a home large on style and space without being limited by its floor area.
