1. A colourful apartment with a chinoiserie theme

With specific colours recommended by the homeowners’ feng shui master, Topic Studio masterfully crafted a vibrant interior for this apartment situated in the River Valley area. The bold colour requirements include a bright red element in the living area, a gold feature wall in the dining room and a study that features the colour blue with a mountain element.

To complement the strong colours, the firm selected a chinoiserie theme with floral compositions and natural materials. This harmonious blend ties the whole design scheme together and creates a cosy home with a luxurious ambience.

2. A concrete Bauhaus-style home

Located in a quiet Shah Alam suburb in Malaysia, this home designed by architect Choo Gim Wah embraces the beauty of off-form concrete with its open-plan concept.

The architect created a series of interlocking spaces through the 6,200sqft abode with feng shui principles in mind. The living room, for example, is designed with a staircase and faces East; this allows rays of sunlight to filter through the space and liven up the living area.

3. An apartment that combines elements inspired by space travel and geomancy

The homeowners of this three-bedroom apartment presented a rather unique brief: they tasked interior design studio ArchLuxe to create a modern interior that had to incorporate a science fiction-inspired aesthetic while adhering to feng shui requirements.

To form a bridge between the two differing elements, the firm injected organic curves inspired by the sinuous forms of spaceships into the spatial flow of the home. The lighting and furniture pieces also feature curved or circular details, which amplifies the elegant and soft atmosphere. The colours for different rooms were selected based on the advice of the geomancy consultant, and the team elevated the hues with a mix of materials and patterns.

4. Tory Burch's lavish and colourful home

Fashion designer Tory Burch’s apartment in New York’s Upper East Side is designed with feng shui principles in mind. Burch has been interested in geomancy principles since 2006, when one of her staff introduced her to it whilst preparing for the opening of her brand’s Hong Kong office.

Often consulting feng shui masters on her properties, stores and even the Tory Burch headquarters in New York’s Flatiron district, it’s no surprise that the layout of her very own home is also dictated by feng shui. Occupying an entire floor of The Pierre, an opulent Fifth Avenue hotel facing Central Park, the apartment is dressed in an eclectic mix of brightly-coloured furnishings and eye-catching prints.

5. A nautical-inspired Good Class Bungalow

This luxurious residence nestled in the quiet Leedon Park neighbourhood was carefully crafted by award-winning design practice Designworx Interior Consultant. “The homeowners’ brief to us included an entertainment room and a dry kitchen,” design director Terri Tan. “They also had specific orientations for their beds and altar, which were determined by a feng shui master.”

The designer brought the home’s aquatic theme to life with a glamorous flair by incorporating marine-inspired touches such as an aquamarine shagreen feature wall and bespoke coffee tables with seashells set within.
