Design areas: Living Room, Reading Nook, Kitchen, Master Bedroom with En-Suite bathroom, Bedrooms and Powder Room | Project completed: 2018 | Renovation budget: SGD100,000 – SGD125,000
Industrial touches are mixed with traditional elements which juxtapose bold colours in this loft vibe inspired condo. A complete overhaul was needed for this decade-old apartment, combining and expanding the kitchen area, as well as creating an enfilade layout, where one area flows into the other.
At the base of the design, architectural detail offer a traditional vibe – using tall skirting boards and arts and craft inspired architrave and door designs. A toned down brick wall was installed, brightening the living room, while offering some depth and layering to the space.
Continuing on the white brick, the kitchen was paved with a rough white brick in a herringbone design, which is offset with the navy carpentry and crisp white countertops. Eclectic and antique finds like the shutters and the side cabinet add personality and visual interest.
The bathrooms are kept monochrome with a splash of colour for the vanity cabinets. Patterned tiles in black and white are complemented by the white subway tiles. Vinyl wood blinds add interest and hide the aluminium window frames and offer a cohesive look.
