JM11 Design Studio has quite the repertoire when it comes to designing beautiful and comfortable spaces, and this contemporary home in Johor proved just how talented and fluent this firm is in interior design. It incorporates green hues to bring the feel of nature indoors and lend the home a fresh aesthetic.

Inniva Design's exceptional renovation work can be seen in this 1600 sqft minimalist design condominium in Johor. The home is made up of mostly white with the exception of a few grounding touches such as the furniture, carpets and the appliances. The designer paired the overall white space with similar coloured custom cabinetry to help the space look blend in and give the illusion of more space.
The cabinetry's glossy surface adds a sheen to these rooms and reflects light when natural light hits it at the right angle. Thanks to this clever material selection, the home does not look flat or one-dimensional.

Meanwhile, potted plants were dotted throughout the house to help liven up the otherwise neutral toned space.
