The apartment needed to be completely re-designed by Home Guide to transform the interior design from old and tired to warm and contemporary. The palette was chosen to produce a feeling of comfort leading to a look of easy luxury. Timber laminates included colours from ash to chestnut and hazelnut and natural stone-look finishes were used in the living room and kitchen to compliment those natural hues.

The apartment was completely re-designed with everything, including unnecessary internal walls, stripped away, to ensure that only the necessary and desired elements were included in this final home interior design scheme. The palette was chosen based on the client’s love of timber, which was used throughout, from the entrance to the master bedroom. Other areas were kept white and the floors were finished in white marble to highlight the timber features and extreme attention to detail. The full effect of the home can be experienced in our 360-degree view, which gives exclusive visual access to the entire space.
The living area is the perfect combination of cosy yet spacious, thanks to the use of warm timber and deep green curtains, paired with an open floor plan, with all clutter hidden away in custom designed wall cabinets. An extra unit was designed to run the length of the room, below the windows, which serves as extra seating when entertaining as well as extra storage for shoes and other items.
The living area is separated from other sections of the house with glass partitions creating a sense of generosity and space. However, bottle green curtains were included in the design by Home Guide to allow for the rooms to be closed off when privacy is preferred. A doorway to the parent's bedroom is concealed in the TV unit, behind timber slats adding an element of textural interest, rather than breaking the wall with the literalness of an actual doorway.
The master bedroom leads off of the living area through a glass door and provides a quiet oasis for the owners. One full wall was dedicated to timber veneer wardrobe cabinets in the same finish as the living space. The door to the master bathroom is even concealed in the same unit, next to the window, so as not to break the visual flow and calm of the room.
The bathroom is a minimalist space and is a classic example of home interior design in Singapore embracing international styles. The clean simple lines of the vanity and wall unit are elegantly juxtaposed against the intricately patterned monochrome Mediterranean style tiles, creating a spa-like feel.
The dining area comfortably sits in an open plan space with the kitchen. The white dining chairs disappear against the white backdrop of floor and wall, bringing the natural timber table into focus. Green elements were used in the interior design throughout the home, including fans to circulate natural air, and large windows to take advantage of natural light and thus reduce electricity consumption.
The kitchen continues the almost Scandinavian style of the rest of the house, with blonde timber units and white tops. By creating an open plan kitchen, the dining and living rooms are included in the space, to allow for a more social feel when entertaining. The lack of division invites guests to join in during preparation, or family to pull up a chair for a chat and a cosy moment.
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…
