Key collection sign board has been put up at the entrance
The latest piece of news that has been shared in our BR Residence Facebook Group is that the TOP letters have been sent from the developer to our lawyers this week. This means the key collection should start in 2-3 weeks time by batches. Ours is the second batch, so my estimate will be early – mid September, and we’ll make the collection after the Chinese 7th Month.
In my last post, I shared the 3D drawings of our living hall and foyer. Today, I’ll share the design of our three bedrooms.
Firstly – our master bedroom. Originally, we wanted a king-sized bedframe so that our 8 years-old “baby” can sleep with us (if he wants to). Of course, he’s more excited to sleep in his own room now than bunking with us. But still, having his sweet little nose cuddled into my chest or his smelly little feet poking at my face while sleeping is a wonderful memory that I’ll always cherish.
Nonetheless, due to space constraint in our master bedroom, we’ve to downgrade to a queen-sized bedframe. Else, there will be no space for dressing table. Our designer proposed this design for us, keeping in mind that we wanted something simple, cozy and comfortable.
The queen-sized bedframe comes with storage, bed-head with lightning, two side tables and a dressing table. This design is like love-at-first-sight to us, we accepted it without any alteration.
Coming up next is Bedroom 2 – which is Edison’s bedroom. We wanted an “age-proof” design that maximizes the space in his room. This is the original design proposed by our designer. It’s simple but fits perfectly with the room’s lay-out. However, our boy doesn’t seem to like it – I guess the design is too “matured” for him.
He wanted a bunk bed, but we told him it’s not practical since he has no siblings to share the bed. Then, we proposed a platform bed and he thinks that it looks kinda cool too. We decided to put a super-single bed for him so he can sleep comfortably (I can bunk with him occasionally too!).
By now, you should already know that I’m a crazy mom who likes co-sleeping. Haha! Here’s the final design of his room with a platform bed.

Lastly – our Bedroom 3 which we will be using as our study room. Picture (A) is the original design and Picture (B) is the amended version as V wanted the top-hung cabinets on both sides to look the same.
I squealed with delight knowing that we will have our own personal workspace soon (Yay to no more sharing!)
So far, we’re quite happy with the design and concept that our designer has worked out for us. It’s also a fun partnership with him. We’ll meet him again when we get our keys for the actual site measurement and defect checking. Till then, I will update on this space again. 🙂
