HOME OF HASTE
Simon Chong found sourcing the furniture against a tight deadline to be the biggest challenge of the project – although the resulting vignettes speak for themselves.
Simon Chong表示要在短時間內尋找相配的傢具裝飾屬項目最大挑戰，但出色成果的確有目共睹。 in time. “To find all the furniture, accessories and materials I resonated with that would fit the style of the space, and that would be of the right sizes and proportions with available stock in Hong Kong – that was no easy feat,” he recalls.
In terms of style, this abode is full of statements. The designer says he played with a variety of elements, mixing and matching pieces from the East and West, the old and the new, and the modern and the classical. “There was no set aesthetic,” he says. “I just wanted to create a modern, comfortable home that’s tasteful yet timeless.” The homeowners are delighted with the results. “When I handed over the home to them, the lady of the house started tearing up,” shares Simon. “That made me emotional too, as there’s no greater satisfaction than seeing a happy client.”
With their hectic work schedules, the family cherishes spending time at home with each other. The verdant outdoors is perfect for entertaining – the indoor living room extends out to the garden and outdoor relaxation area, so large groups can always be accommodated. “It’s very functional for their lifestyle in this regard,” explains Simon. “They also love travelling together – going on holidays and bringing back curios from their trips – so this expansive home certainly has the capacity to continue evolving.” //
