Remember when Doug and Cheska Kramer shared the progress of the interiors of their condo earlier this year? The family announced this November that the project is finally done! In a vlog posted last November 8, Team Kramer gave us a tour of the space. “You know, this is very special,” Doug says, “because when we moved to our home right now, that was two years in planning. This one [took] seven years.”
Done in collaboration with Gussy Design, the interiors echo the family’s home in the suburbs, highlighting wood and stone for an interesting modern-rustic mix. Cheska shares that the look was a blend of both her and her husband’s tastes, which oftentimes intersect. “Doug and I, we really put a lot of our personalities together... Sometimes, what happens is Doug has a peg, and then I have a peg, and then when we send it to each other, it's the same.”
All the cool details about Team Kramer's newly furnished condo unit
1. Furniture from their old home was refurbished for their common area.
The home opens up to a common space composed of the living, dining, and kitchen areas.
Several pieces of furniture have been reused and refurbished, including the dining chairs from their old home which have been reupholstered.
Team Kramer got in touch with suppliers they have previously worked with, such as Triboa Bay Living, which provided them with their dining area hanging lamps.
While the new kitchen layout is similar to the original, parts had to be gutted and redone to accommodate the family’s lifestyle.
Off to one side is a special nook for Doug’s coffee machines.
2. Gavin’s bedroom is in sleek shades of gray and blue.
Doug and Cheska seem to have decided on the more sustainable option of future-proofing their children’s bedrooms and going for more mature interiors. The bedroom of their son Gavin follows the wood-themed living areas, with touches of gray and white.
The en suite bathroom in wood and blue is also accessible from the common area. Doug shares that all showers in the unit were at 7ft in height to accommodate him.
3. Scarlet’s and Kendra’s bedrooms are pretty in pink, and have walk-in closets.
Sisters Scarlet and Kendra used to share bedrooms, but in this home, they have their own spaces. Like Gavin’s, both rooms have been future-proofed and are ready for their growing up.
Scarlet’s bedroom has touches of beige and pink, complete with a rattan entertainment console and a vanity table.
Kendra’s bedroom has a similar layout and color palette as Scarlet’s. Both rooms also have mini walk-in closets by the entrance.
The sisters share one bathroom accented with teakwood.
4. The master bedroom perfectly accomodates both Cheska and Doug's needs.
Doug and Cheska’s bedroom goes with the wood-and-stone theme of the home, and comes complete with a walk-in closet and a vanity area for Cheska.
It also has an en suite bathroom featuring two sinks and a bathtub for the couple.
5. Their entire unit has automated settings.
Doug also reveals that with the help of supplier Smart Homes by AVDI, a lot of the home’s functions are automated, including turning the lights on and off, closing and opening the blinds, and turning the sound system on.
