The palette of the house was chosen to add a note of freshness in tones of calming blues and greys. Texture also played a big part in this home interior design, with geometric tiles and reclaimed wood adding an extra dimension and depth in each room. The third and final main element was the idea of adding a sense of space and light throughout the house, so storage was added everywhere to allow for open floor spaces and easy flow.
The living room was kept simple, with clean lines to maintain a sense of space and calm. The use of timber-style vinyl flooring by Inovar not only looks fresh, it also absorbs sounds, helping to create a cosy space ready for use by all. To add visual interest, a modern geometric rug was used under the coffee table, along with velvety rich wallpaper on the accent wall behind the TV.
A more formal space was created for the dining room, with a rich blue creating a fresh contrast to the crisp white walls. Luxurious elements like the marble and brass table, along with the designer lighting draws the eye inward to the table and the focal area of the space. Practicality was also remembered here, with a custom built in shoe cabinet in Arova - Videmist laminate, which complements the room’s palette, while offering convenient storage to ensure the space stays open with an airy feel.
The warmth and depth created in the kitchen set the tone for the design used throughout the home; a chic palette with hardy finishes stands up to wear and looks good while doing so. The use of colours, like blueberry and glacier, on the cabinetry, paired with marble tops and brass handles, provides a sophisticated counterbalance to the rustic Hafary floor tiles, perfect for a family with energetic children and pets.
Though the master bedroom was sparsely furnished to keep a fresh feel, it is still visually intriguing. A geometric wallpaper by Modernstone, behind the headboard, plays with the linear parquet-style laminate by Lamitak, used on the leading to the bathroom and as a detail on the wardrobe. To balance the texture, a misty palette was used which creates a feel of calm, perfect for a bedroom of rest and relaxation.
The main bathroom once again references the edgy design of the home with texture and colour taking centre stage. The seamless flooring and glass shower enclosure provide a simple backdrop for the bold accent wall, in rustic Hafary tiles, while the reclaimed wood-look of the vanity continues the rustic theme, adding a playful touch to the look.
Interior design in Singapore often must cater for unexpected elements, like bicycle storage, which has been playfully resolved in the study area. Stored in this way, the bikes become almost architectural installations, standing out against the bright aqua wall. The desk was a built-in below the window to take advantage of the natural light, with floor to ceiling cabinetry again in Arova - Videmist laminate, to allow for plenty of practical storage. The result is a fun and energetic space, perfect as a home office for the kids or the parents
The second bathroom welcomes you to step into nature, providing balance and harmony with strong wood grain from the Hafary wall tiles and the choice of green Lamitak laminate for the vanity. While the styling is toned down, it still references the overall theme of the house, and seamless flooring and the glass shower room once again ensure the space feels practical and spacious.
As a three-bedroom condominium at the Lincoln in Surrey Road, this apartment had potential, but it was dark with awkward spaces and had no personality. The semi-retired owners wanted the space transformed to suit their needs and style, so…
