House tour: A sleek two-bedroom with accent colours and varied textures

Accent colours, varied textures, and interesting details are just the right ingredients for a sleek home design.

This apartment was tenanted when homeowner Daniel Kong was working in Hong Kong. Upon his return, he decided to renovate it before moving in.

“I like to cook, so I wanted a functional kitchen. As my fiancée and I have friends over at least once or twice every week, we thought that an open-concept kitchen would be nice, so that we can still interact with our guests while going about the food preparation,” says the banker.

The wall beside the dining table, directly facing the entrance, is given a matte cement-effect finish, in order to add texture and depth.
