3D drawings of the Living Room and Foyer

Here are the conceptual 3D drawings done by my ID from Desigva Design.

1st draft - we felt the foyer is too complicated with vertical bars and lots of ambient lighting. The console is fine but not necessary to have lights below it. So, we asked for a simpler design. We wanted more curves rather than straight lines and sharp angles.

This is another view from the foyer.

Here's what we got after editing the design. It looks quite bare but I think it's OK. Otherwise, not sure what other design can work in that space. Wallpaper? Curvy lines? Anyway, the console has cabinets for storing keys and letters and a glass memo board behind it.

Living room - quite straight-forward design. We wanted lots of hidden storage place and also a display shelf.

Here's another draft with the partition drawn - a circular patterned MDF board with glass on one side. The partition serves as the feature wall in the living room/foyer. The plaster ceiling will be flat - nothing fancy like L-boxes or light troughs.

All the storage cabinets will be custom made from white laminates with recessed handles for a clean minimalist look. The display shelves are glass though for a light airy touch to the design.

We bought ceiling fans at the recently concluded Homedec Part II at KL Convention Center.

Haiku Kotuku fans for the Living and Dining area (shown above). I like the contemporary design but the best part is it's very energy efficient. Visit their website for the nitty gritty details. Initial plan was to buy all 5 ceiling fans from Alpha. However, in the end, we bought 3 Alpha fans (RM818 for all 3) and 2 Haiku fans (RM1990 for 2). Well.... at least we are not buying any air-conditioners.... that translates into savings as well.

yup - we are going for a modern contemporary style with lots of white, accented with a little silver and black. everything is kept simple, fuss-free with easy maintainance.

May I ask where did you get your Haiku fan from? That's a really good price. Email me red_fur_ball@hotmail.com if you don't mind. Thank you.

I purchased them during one of the home fairs in 2010.
