Home Guide created a clean white shell by using high gloss tiles to reflect the light, which visually expanded the living space. Built-in cabinetry and appliances kept the floor space open, avoiding the blocking of flow and creating a seamless façade in the living room and kitchen. The simple yet stylish furnishing creates an impression of large open rooms is an ideal concept in Singapore interior design.
The dining room emanates a warm glow, welcoming one to sit down and enjoy a meal while admiring the exquisite view. The main wall is cladded in a full height bronze mirror which visually doubles the size of the room. The bronze also serves to reflect the light of the crystal chandelier and recessed lighting, adding a sense of intimate luxury in the dining spot.
Home Guide chose to design an interior space that highlighted the openness of the apartment, and kept the concept clean and deceptively simple. The rooms are all decorated with restraint, with a few key furniture and neutral tones throughout. All unnecessary clutter was hidden away in built in cabinetry and a pops of colour and pattern was added in each room as a focal point.
Home Guide started the project by clearing out existing shop fittings and creating a completely new design concept. The elements used in the design, mimics the semi-precious stones and metals used in the jeweller’s craft. Fabrics are in rich tones and polished metals and even elements of stone are included in the décor to create the visual context.
A swirling pattern is used in a relief panel at the entrance and repeated throughout the interior, referencing the corporate identity. The original solid timber door is framed with brass, creating an imposing entrance, establishing the richness within.
The white walls and marble floors in the living areas set the tone with a clean contemporary style. High gloss cabinetry, silver mirror and crystal were added as feature finishes to complete the look. A bedroom was converted into a prayer room and custom cabinetry was designed for each room based on its requirements. By using expensive finishes and custom designing all additional BICs, Home Guide was able to create a sophisticated modern home, without unnecessary opulence.
A full wall in the living room was dedicated to the TV unit and plenty of storage, in a white, crystal glass finish. Concealed lighting glints off the marble floor, drawing the eye to the focal wall. On the opposite wall, an understated timber storage cabinet was also added, providing a more subtle storage solution and a perfect balance for the room.
The dining and living room has an expanse of glossy white tiles, upon which the leather and steel furniture is reflected. Recessed lighting guides the eye around the room, with the exquisite chandelier suspended above the dining table, providing a luxurious focal point and casting a warm glow throughout the space.
Home guide designed the studio area to house the main bedroom and a small living area with a kitchenette. The two bedrooms space has a large living space, dining room and a bedroom. Dual key apartments are becoming an increasingly common and practical layout in home interior design in Singapore. The choice of clean white walls perfectly highlights the textures and colours of the furnishings and finishes used in the house. The design aesthetic is a clever dance with palettes and materials repeated in the two areas to create cohesiveness throughout the home.
Through the clever use of strong linear elements and gloss surfaces that reflect light, the room space visually expands with volume and distance. Softness is added by the inclusion of textured rugs and sheer curtains, ensuring the space retains a homely feel.
Home Guide started by choosing a palette of soft beiges, creams and browns. This palette was supported by the use of natural timbers and stone in flooring and cabinetry that was custom designed throughout. The living area was divided with the addition of a floating wall and a swiveling TV unit. Each bedroom was specifically designed to suit the tastes of the inhabitant, with the final bedroom being turned into a study area. Overall, a sense of space is created with references to nature and resort style.
This apartment, bought as a HDB property in Singapore, needed a complete transformation to achieve the intended vision of a timelessly classic Italian design. Interior spaces needed to be cleared out and fitted with new cabinetry throughout. Also the palette had to be simplified, in order to let the new custom furniture stand out.
Home Guide started by adding a dado rail with wainscoting as classical architectural elements. The whole space was then painted white and custom designed built-in cabinetry was added to the living room, dining room and study. Additional custom cabinetry designs were added in the living area, in a dark black timber, thereby creating focal points and a simplified classic aesthetic. Overall, this is an elegant example of Singapore interior design, working with classic elements.
Home Guide approached this Singapore home interior design project with a smart palette choice and use of textures, bringing in light weathered concrete laminate and a dark timber on the custom cabinetry, with greys on the walls highlighting the crisp lines throughout. Though minimalist, personality was added with the addition of certain pieces brought in by the client, such as the sculptures in the entrance and the PH5 modernist lamp above the dining table.
