Situated close to the coast in eastern Singapore, this ground-floor apartment revels in its seaside influence, while celebrating its owners’ love of art and travel.

Home to Ukrainian couple Kateryna and Sergiy Pervak, the 2,509sqft abode drinks in the light, featuring a soaring five-metres high ceiling in the living area, four bedrooms, as well as a generously-sized veranda equipped with a Jacuzzi and dining area.

Although the three-bedroom apartment already featured elements of a dream home, some renovation work was still necessary.

The walls were not well-maintained, and the bathrooms had to be redone. The owners also wished to have a truly personalised abode, with decorative details personally selected by the couple while creating a more stunning backdrop for Kateryna’s paintings and collection of Art Deco-style objects.

The homeowners thus turned to interior designer New Nyew and her eponymous firm to help realise their dream abode; it was a fruitful collaborative process filled with creative synergy between the couple and the designer, and it took a total of two months to complete this project.

To create the perfect backdrop for the eclectic art collection, the homeowners opted for a neutral palette for the residence. The apartment is clad in primarily in shades of grey and cream, accentuated by pops of colour on the artworks and upholstery hand-picked by the couple.

Sliding doors by the living area open up to the outdoor area, which overlooks verdant greenery and floods the abode with natural light.

Potted plants and a painting by Kateryna animate the space, next to seats upholstered in serene blue leather that draw cues to the home’s proximity to the sea. A characterful collection of cushions and throws also add to the snug appeal of the space.
