Fresh Pastels Remake a Lake Life Apartment.

Fresh Pastels Remake a Lake Life Apartment.

The first impression of this Tao Ching Road EC condominuium in Lake Life Apartments is one that is light and gentle. The interior design concept embraces white as a base palette to visually expand the constricted floor space. Expectedly, plenty of storage was necessary to ensure space was utilized efficiently. Finally, mirror was used as an effective home interior design element which doubles space and reflect light to create a seemingly larger home.

Home Guide responded to the challenge of making this small home larger through smart interior design methods in an effective and stylish way. White tones were used to reflect light off every surface possible and all possible storage was built-in, pulling clutter toward the walls and clearing an open flow path. The final trick to increase space was to add mirrored elements which can double the sense of spaciousness.

Sleek Scandinavia in Singapore

Sleek Scandinavia in Singapore

When this home interior design was being created for this Condominium in Bedok, Singapore, the core aim was to bring out a space that emulated the Scandinavian’s simple yet elegant interior design styles. Each room is designed with functionality and aesthetic in mind. Rather than over fill the rooms, elements were pared down to the minimum to ensure a strong and consistent Scandinavian design style is well communicated.

Home guide chose a beautiful light wood to be used for its living room, setting the tone for this Scandinavian inspired family home. White wall paint was chosen for majority of walls, with certain areas picked out in darker shades to create depth and interest. Custom storage units were created to ensure a clean and clutter free space like that of Scandinavian styled homes.

Moroccan Tiles

The interior design of this 3-bedroom home was created around the concept of a monotone palette and wood elements. Custom storage spaces and child-safety considerations were incorporated into the design of the house while maintaining a pleasing and seamless aesthetic.

A minimalist, contemporary interior design concept was created for this home based on a monotone palette. To ensure the space did not become too cold or impersonal, our residential interior design team included visual focal point by introducing pattern and textures in the monotone finishes through unique Moroccan tiles. Specially designed cabinetry was created for each room to ensure ample storage solutions measured to the space and requirements.

Skyline Flats

A large 5 bedroom HDB BTO home owned by a young couple, The Skyline was designed as a testament to classics in a contemporary context. Moody dark greys and dark tinted mirrors were used to add drama, with carefully considered lighting visually separating functional areas. A bar and library area were effortlessly included in the living space, adding character to the home.

Home guide began the project by identifying the different elements that were to be included in the open living space and then defining each area with a clever use of screens and lighting.  Every HDB home interior design that we have completed each have their own characteristics and definition of what makes them extraordinary. The success of this particular project lies in the use of dark finishes throughout, creating a classic visual language coupled with simple modern lines and materials. A library area was created which displays an impressive book collection, while the bar cabinets glitter with crystal and liquor bottles glinting behind their doors like intriguing jewels.

The Trilinq Condo II

The Trilinq Condo II

This 2 bedroom, double volume apartment in the Trilinq condominium in Jalan Lempeng, Singapore, received a bright makeover as a couple’s new nest. White high gloss finishes were used throughout, to highlight the bright accent colours used in each room. A study loft was created and storage compartments were added to allow for maximum storage space. The result is a fun and and airy home, with full height windows and dedicated functional areas which allow the owners to use the space effectively.

Singapore interior design often requires a clever use of space by doubling up functions in dedicated zones, to ensure a maximisation of square meterage. Home guide managed to do just that and created a multifunctional and efficient home for the owners of this apartment, providing ample storage and an element of fun.

A stark white palette was used to create a clean canvas against which accent pop of colour stands out with the sunshine yellow wall and bright teal sofa. Additional storage areas were created under the stairs and in the bedroom as a bed platform. Finally, an entire room was added to the space in the form of a loft study, filling part of the double volume and providing additional storage space. The dining and living rooms are compact yet functional and the whole home feels vibrant and bright.

The Dairy Farm

This apartment in Upper Bukit Timah Road was designed to be a contemporary open layout home, with industrial elements balancing the clean lines used throughout. The home was made spacious with unobstructed flow through the use of customised display cabinets that were installed for convenient clutter-free storage. Finally, the home was created with integrated smart technology to allow for ease of use.

Home guide began the interior design process by choosing a neutral and contemporary palette to accentuate the spaciousness of the home. The use of track lighting also helped create an industrial edge that complements the home’s existing red brick wall. The space followed a fully open concept, with living, dining and kitchen areas all in one. Custom display units allow for personal items to be neatly packed away, thus not disrupting the flow. This choice of design concept focuses on effortless functionality, a key element in Singapore interior design, where space is often at a premium. Smart appliances and amenities were added, from air-con to lighting and curtains, allowing for control of all systems offsite via mobile.

A minimalist contemporary five room home was created in Sumang Lane. This HDB BTO apartment is both effortlessly stylish and practical, allowing for sufficient storage and entertainment space. A monochrome palette was used to create a dramatic effect throughout the living spaces, while keeping to a more calming neutral palette in the bedrooms.

Home Guide achieved the contemporary look using a combination of luxe materials and a very clear and consistent palette of black and charcoal, on white. Customized built-in cabinetry allowed for ample storage, eradicating the need to clutter up central floor space. This style of Singapore interior design has created spaciousness that provided the flexibility for different functions, ranging from the creation of an intimate quiet home for the family to enjoy privately, or to cater to large number of guests during gatherings.

Puay Hee Avenue

Puay Hee Avenue

A four story home in Potong Pasir, Puay Hee Avenue is a landed clustered house designed with personality. Each floor is designed with a specific function in mind –  the basement for entertainment, the 1st floor for common living room and the 3rd and 4th floors for bedrooms. The residential Interior design concept was crafted to suit both the style of the homeowners while creating an artistically contemporary space for day to day living.

Puay Hee Avenue provided Home Guide a perfect blank canvas, with interesting spaces and angles to work into the concept. While the high, overall square meterage, has to be taken into consideration in the interior design for this landed clustered home, its four stories has enabled a certain flexibility to work different design styles on each floor.

Betjeman & Barton

This franchise branch of exclusive luxury French tea company Betjeman & Barton, opened its door in Raffles City Shopping Center. The Singapore interior design concept was to exude the same classic styling of the Paris store, with luxurious finishes to offset the bright packaging of the range of teas and other products available. Ample display shelving and storage were necessary, as well as unique display areas for limited product offers.

The façade is in the same style as the flagship store in Paris. With large glass window display, it catches the attention of the passersby with elegant product displays. Home Guide created a wraparound full height shelving in a rich dark timber, providing sufficient display space and concealed cabinetry below the shelving for storing extra products. The sales point, in a white marble-look finish, provides a focal point in the store, drawing customers into the shop like a bright icon in a den of treasures.

BYX

BYX needed a bold and adventurous retail space, one that would call out to all shoppers passing by not limiting to biking enthusiasts. The space needed to be dynamic to showcase the bicycles at their best, as well as practical enough to display other smaller products. Space planning was key to ensure customers are impressed yet not overwhelmed in their shopping experience.

The store was created as a twist on Singapore interior design, by Home Guide. A palette of black, and the grey of rough concrete allowed the bright colours of the merchandise to pop, adding more energy to the sport. A custom display system was designed to allow smaller products to stand out, and a bike workshop area was incorporated to allow for on-the-spot repairs and adjustments.
