Home Guide was brought in with an interior design brief to create an elegant home for the clients and their extensive collection of books and art. A double story building with a mezzanine running the length of one side, lighting and groupings were used to divide the space visually into cosy nooks and gathering areas. The existing strong timber detailing, in the Peranakan architecture of the building, was artfully incorporated into the aesthetic, with all of the elements coming together as a cohesive sophisticated whole.
The intention was to create a space infused with classic and sophisticated style. Starting from the cream marbled floors, Home Guide created a palette of rich browns and ambers. The dining area invites one to step up to the glowing crème leather bar for a light aperitif before taking a seat at the exquisite brown granite dining table. The other spaces in the home were designed with equal careful consideration and the whole home is a beautiful example of Singapore interior design.
