Baskets from Laos and a unique square kilim from Iran are placed under the windows.

Living Room

The stone wall was half finished and a retired bricklayer – the stone whisperer – restored it with love all the way to the ceiling. A chimney was added to accommodate the Danish fireplace. The teak wood coffee table is made out of one big tree trunk.

Guest Bedroom

We removed a false ceiling to open up this room to the roof and built a walk-in wardrobe. The square baskets are custom-made in Thailand and are great for storage. An LED light strip fitted in the original wooden wall and glass ball ceiling lamp provide awesome atmospheric light. Tiny bedside lights from Muuto are very cute and practical as they are dimmable.

Pool Room

This is the only room where we wanted to use colour. And we did! The two table lamps are made out of buddhist trumpets from Ladakh in India. The pool table is surrounded by pop art paintings from famous chinese artists. Mrs Wang ZhiJie painted the ‘Little girl series’ and Mr. Yue Minjun is famous for his smiling soldiers. To give this room this eclectic and Pub-like look, black bakelite sockets were added and ceramic with brass light switches from India.
