A home with room to move and space to grow up in


HomeRenoGuru: How did you choose your interior design firm?

Benedict: I met Anthony in February for a consultation. I met him again one or two days later, then one or two hours later we closed the deal. He had charisma and we had a connection. He was also very determined and prompt.


HomeRenoGuru: What was your brief to your designer?

Browns and whites abound in this modern, simple Scandinavian-inspired home


Benedict: We wanted a modern, simple Scandinavian design, with lots of whites and browns and a little bit of black. We wanted a home for the future, not just for the present.

Nabilah: We also wanted a house that was safe for the kids and easy to clean. So less is more.

HomeRenoGuru: How did you find the renovation process?

Benedict: I found the renovation process very fast, very efficient. Anthony was very accommodating. He said, “As a designer, you engage me – I do the job for you. And you’ll have less things to worry about, because you have your family, you have your work and so on.” He was very understanding.

Nabilah: He kept updating us every single day. We checked every three days or so, not because we were anxious but because we were curious.

Benedict: The thing that surprised me was that he accomplished everything in one month!


HomeRenoGuru: What are your favourite features of your renovated home?

The living room features a floor-to-ceiling built-in cabinet with glass alcoves and LED spotlights to showcase the couple’s collection of Liverpool FC memorabilia and other collectibles


Benedict: My favourite part of my home is of course my living room. It has this full feature wall with storage and glass, with beautiful LED lights. I think the living room is the heart of our house.

Nabilah: I like my kitchen. It has a full wall-height cabinet with lots of storage. The cabinets have no handles, which is great for us, because it keeps the kids away and also lessens damages.

Nabilah loves her sleek, handle-free kitchen cabinets, which keep little hands out


Amelia: I like my bedroom because my bed is so comfortable.

Aymeric: I love my bedroom. I like to play with my cars in there.

Frosted glass panels keep the contents neat and the homeowners disciplined

Benedict: I also love our bedroom, especially the frosted glass panels on the doors. You can see exactly what you have and what you don’t have. It keeps us very disciplined.


HomeRenoGuru: Would you recommend your ID firm and designer to other homeowners?

Benedict: I would truly give a 5-star to Anthony Kwan from Posh Living, and would introduce him to all the homeowners who need to have a renovation done. Please go to him. He will provide the full range of services to you. He’s truly a very good and understanding interior designer.

Nabilah: He’s an excellent person and he did a great job on our house.
