When the residents of this home in the beachfront neighbourhood of Stanley reached out to Hong Kong-based Liquid Interiors in early 2021, they weren’t looking to renovate their abode.
Instead, they wanted it to be styled by design experts.
“There are so many people [in Hong Kong] who have quite luxurious spaces, but never personalise it or make it cosy,” says founder and creative director Rowena Gonzales. The three-storey, four-bedroom house has magnificent views of the Southside of Hong Kong island. The designers were tasked with revamping two living spaces, the expansive terraces they're attached to, as well as the entryway.
“The clients really felt they were lacking warmth, emotion and personality in these spaces,” adds Christie Simpson, interior decorator and stylist at Liquid Interiors.
In previous times, styling was something Liquid Interiors offered as the “final touches” in a home when renovation is nearing completion, explains Gonzales. But after noticing an upsurge in client demand for it during the Covid-19 era, the company began offering it as a standalone service.
