Designing the interior of a home to fit with greener surroundings presents a unique challenge. The main consideration was to create a home where the interior design does not overpower the existing scenery of the garden landscape of this Leisure Farm home.
With its location in the southern state of Johor, Malaysia and its close proximity to the Singaporean border, the location within the gated residential enclave of Leisure Farm provides a rather unique lifestyle. Enjoying both the fast paced lifestyle of a vibrant metropolitan centre while being able to retreat to a resort styled, countryside home, the interior design of this semi-detached house required a unique touch and for that the team from GDP were brought in to transform the interior.
With the locations juxtapose of urban and countryside, these created an opportunity to bring a contemporary home design and infuse it with subtle influences of modern Moroccan interior design elements. From the moment you step in, you are welcomed into a clean modern space. Taking white as the dominant colour for its interior styling, Morocco motif elements are subtly incorporated to the design through a carved timber screen, furniture selection as well as decorative items used throughout.
The use of this interior design style beautifully defines each space while the cooler toned colours used do not overpower the equally beautiful greenery surrounding the home. Rather than creating clear divisions of space, the views of the landscaped spaces are welcomed to complement its interior and create a greater sense of space.
With full height glass sliding doors and windows incorporated throughout, curtains play an equally vital role. Rather than utilizing more solid materials, we opted for sheer window fabric in white. This simple approach helps provide privacy when required while adding a softer ambiance especially in the bedrooms.
The culmination of the different design approaches results in a home that welcomes its owners home and envelops them in spaces designed to promote relaxation in the modern countryside resort-styled setting of Leisure Farm.
