Understated Elegance & Timeless Class With Minotti Styling
Unparalleled beauty, comfort and grace blend together to deliver stunning, moody and extremely unique aesthetics in the interior design of this Minotti Style HDB BTO flat!
The property is an HDB BTO flat located in Bendemeer Light, and Mr. Ken was asked to design the interior based on a strictly allocated budget – a grand total of $30k. Although quite challenging, the end result turned out to be a combination of unfettered grace, elegance and sophistication the likes of which are very rarely seen in small-scale interior projects.
Overview of the design
The basic concept behind the whole design was to deliver visuals that would be highly distinct and classy. As a result, Mr. Ken went with a moody, alluring dark themed interior that adds a sensual, raw appeal to the space.
Theme & style
The Minotti style reflects authentic Italian integrity which is delivered through timeless visual styling, comfort and careful selection of materials in this HDB BTO flat. Aside from the use of plush fabrics and materials throughout the design, this style is also reflected in the quality, flexibility and visual versatility of that has been strategically implemented in each and every aspect of the space. The overall ambiance looks incredibly bespoke and fashionable.
The stylish TV console has been dressed in an anti-fingerprint black laminate and tinted glass – a trendy combination that sets off the entire ambiance with a beautiful panache.
Moreover, high resilient floor from Powerdekor floor emulates a raw cement aesthetic that adds a unique edginess to the whole design and is absolutely resilient to boot. Lastly, the incredible view from the high-rise windows has been optimized by designing stylishly oversized portals that complement the beauty of the Minotti style with its urban backdrop.
Chic open kitchen
The open floor layout highlights the stunning looks of the candid kitchen design, but it was not always that way. In fact, the existing wall had to be dismantled to attain that coveted ‘see-through’ effect. The bar counter with a black quartz top looks absolutely deluxe while all the doors visible within the circulation space have been strategically camouflaged by being painted over in grey ‘bomb-shelter’ paint. The in-built appliances – especially the fridge with the chrome plating – adds a posh flair to the whole setting, while a pull-out ladder has been installed beside it for dry food storage.
All the existing kitchen walls have been plastered over with a coat of water resilient sealant to emulate the same, raw, edgy appeal as the living area. Furthermore, to enhance the sense of continuity, the living room floor finish has also been extended to the enclosed kitchen space, and ensure a more spacious look.
As the client forgo the option to install a hood – but Mr. Ken still measured in some contingencies for installation in case they wish to cook in the future. Lastly, a granite sink has been installed to face less condensation, which is great for a space like the kitchen.
The best part about this bedroom is the small walk-in closet that has been artfully tucked into the corner with tinted glass for some measure of privacy, and to keep the clutter out of sight.
The interior design of the master bedroom has been deliberately kept simple, while the accent wallpaper that defines the major aesthetic of the space was imported from Kyoto Japan.
Luxe bathroom units
The existing bathroom were tile over the existing wall tiles with new Peranakan motif tiles, while the dry area walls were simply plastered over ad painted a gentle dove-grey emulsion. The client’s opted for customized carpentry for the vanity design and mirror storage, while a sleek, bath-essential niche was designed in the shower area to keep shampoos, soaps, conditioners and other shower essentials handy.
