Dream Home: A Well-lit and Much-loved Home

Another example of inventive space planning, a concealed show cabinet is situated to the right of the display cabinet
HomeRenoGuru: How did you find the actual process of the renovation?
Kelly: The renovation actually took a bit longer than expected, because I made quite a few last-minute changes. Zanice was very willing, even though the changes were quite challenging, to accommodate our requests.
Sliding doors seamlessly extend the living area onto the balcony, which is carpeted in artificial turf
HomeRenoGuru: What do you particularly love about your home?
Fuming: I like the balcony…
Eshyer: It’s really nice!
Kelly: We actually spend a lot of good times together out there, talking and eating.

Zanice placed a lot of importance on the lightings because she feels that you can create different moods at different times. So we really appreciate her for creating such a cosy home for us.

HomeRenoGuru: Would you recommend Beaux Monde and your designer Zanice Chong to other homeowners in search of an interior design firm?
