It was Saturday, a public holiday, and I was waiting for my client at project site from 9am for the much-needed walk-through of his almost-completed new home. By the time we were done, it was already close to 1pm and I was getting a wee bit dizzy due to low blood sugar levels. And was stinkin’ to high heavens no thanks to my clean-up prep work prior to the walk-through.
Driving back to my home, my body, mind and spirit were in Dali-esque form and all I looked forward to was a shower and lying down on my bed for a good ten minutes.
And then I remembered about the family do at 4pm outside of the city.
Suck it in! <close eyes and inhale deeply!>
On the up-side, there’ll be loads of food to choose from.
After braving the thunderstorm that graced our journey and circling for 10 minutes within the gated-community in search of Party-Base-Camp, we finally arrived at a home that booted my interior designer antenna into on-line mode for the possible visual galore behind the facade:
Upon entering through the pivot main door, I am greeted by the great expanse of openness and light that filtered into the entire ground floor. The high ceiling creates a sense of airiness despite the massive bespoke furnishings that were thoughtfully placed.
My heart sang. My spirit rejuvenated. My eyeballs almost sprained (coz they were scanning everywhere within a nanosecond).
My tummy rumblings temporarily forgotten.
The Guest of Honor got punked by her family! She was truly surprised to learn that the “low-key” gathering was actually her birthday celebration. Good job, Undercover Agents!
Then, I was given a tour of the upper floor.
Food and drinks not terribly important at this moment, thank you.
And the oohs & aahs continued as I walked up the timber-covered stairs which continued throughout the upper floor…
While still walking up the stairs, I looked to the left to see:
A quick note about the guest rooms: Four Seasons Hotel standard (bedroom/ wardrobe & bathroom). Eau de toilette from Body Shop. ‘Nuff said.
I was probably the only guest who shamelessly took her time searching for angles and complementing lighting for photo shoots… how shameless! LOL!
We had another place to drop by on our way home, so luckily I could stop myself from venturing into “parts unknown to other guests”! Handbrakes On! 🙂
Adrian and Audrey, many many thanks for sharing your exquisite home which was undoubtedly given immense thought and love.
