Walk into Ronald Fung's bedroom and you could be forgiven for thinking you had entered the Playboy Mansion by mistake: in addition to a round, revolving bed, there is a mirror on the ceiling. The rest of the 855 sq ft flat in Sham Tseng is similarly designed, with a bachelor's hedonism in mind. 'I chose black and red for the open-plan kitchen and living areas because I wanted it to have a cool, devilish vibe,' says Fung. 'And the bedroom and open bathroom are decorated in black and purple because it's sexy.' Even the light switches echo the theme: each is engraved with a catchword, such as 'moan' for the bedroom, 'steamy' for the bathroom, 'sloth' for the living room and 'sizzling' for the kitchen. Artwill designer Regina Kwok was called in to assist Fung, a music and movie buff, in fashioning his new pad. 'Ronald wanted everything open plan so, from the original layout of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, only one structural wall remains, to separate the living and bedroom areas,' Kwok says. Fung's colour scheme - down to the black and purple toilet paper and purple hand wash - meant many fixtures, such as the red range hood and black kitchen tap, took months to source. Some even had to be custom made and imported from overseas, such as the Italian jacuzzi. 'The company was the only one that could make a black jacuzzi,' Fung says. 'I measured the size of the lift to make sure this was the biggest I could get.' The bathroom is open to the bedroom, a design that, Fung says, was questioned. 'The only reason I installed a guest toilet was because my mother insisted that I have somewhere for guests to go,' says Fung. The spare toilet is hidden behind a shoe cabinet that slides open and acts as a door. 'The contractor had to redo this cabinet a few times as he had never done anything like it before,' says Kwok. The right bedding was also difficult to procure. Kwok searched high and low for the right hue and eventually resorted to having satin sheets made at a curtain shop. But the focal point of the bedroom is undeniably the circular bed, which can be rotated so Fung can enjoy all aspects of the room and the sea view. Kwok says she approached many bedroom furniture shops to make the bed, but most refused. 'They had difficulty with the fact that the bed was round,' she says. 'Originally, Ronald had wanted it to be a waterbed but we were concerned as to the [durability] so we decided to scrap that feature.' The bed also plays a central role when the room becomes a private theatre. With the press of a button, the lights are dimmed, curtains are closed and a movie begins. Challenges lay elsewhere for the contractor, who was tasked with building a dining table that folds out but lies flush with the kitchen cabinetry when not in use. 'Because the cabinetry features mirrored finishes, the back of the dining table had to be the same, but the contractor kept saying it couldn't be done because he thought the mirror was too heavy for a table,' Fung says. It was here that Fung's engineering background came in handy and he figured out how it could be done. A keen triathlete, Fung helped design the storage for his BMC carbon road bike, which is kept in a cabinet behind the sofa. Press a button and the cabinet lifts up to reveal the bike. Storage space was also incorporated into the floor in the lounge area, which sits on a platform. Concessions to the bachelor-pad look are a rocking horse, now painted black, which was once owned by Fung's brother, and reindeer antlers from Finland. These extra touches add a quirky dimension to what is clearly a fantasy playground. 1 The sofa (HK$4,000) was bought from Princess Furniture Series (429 Chatham Road North, Hung Hom, tel: 2363 3635).

'It was so simple to do,' says Ronald Fung. 'There's a hole in the bottom shelf where the paper towels can slot through. I love it as it means I don't have to have them out on display and they don't take up valuable space on the benchtop.' The cabinets were made by Artwill (12/F, 128 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai, tel: 2877 8618) for HK$8,000.
