The concept for the space was “connect” as a means to bridge my family’s life with the design. With my sister and I both away from college, connection would be vital. Also, as a traveling family from one country to another, there is always a need for connection to the other location. The concept “connect” translated in the design as pieces coming together as one – photos coming together as one piece, the room divider with different connecting compartments, and the couch coming together with the sideboard to form a division in the room.
With a small budget in mind, I specified new paint, spent a Saturday repainting the great room with my dad, bought one new piece of furniture, and accessorized.
The redesign was completed in two months and a total of RM1078.50, equivalent to US$336.50, was spent.
