A white and gold colour palette creates a luxurious ambience in this home.
Interior designer Suki Huang, from Urban Habitat Design designed this three-room DBSS flat in Tampines to look classic and luxurious, with neoclassical-style interiors. To achieve this look, she incorporated decorative trimmings on the ceiling, and a gold and white colour palette for the cabinetry in the living and dining areas.
To add a visual spectacle to the dining area, Suki chose Swarovski LED lamps which hang at different heights. What’s interesting is the choice of light bulbs in the home – except for those in the kitchen, they are all seven-watt halogen bulbs from Philips Lighting. These bulbs create a cosy ambience in the home while consuming less electricity and producing less heat.
The homeowners are fish lovers and requested the customisation of three glass tanks – at the entrance, living room and balcony. To create a rustic feel in the balcony, wood-like laminate from Lamitak was chosen for the cabinetry around the tank, with Hafary floor tiles to match. White countertops from Caesarstone in the kitchen and bathrooms create the illusion of larger spaces. In the kitchen, marble-like laminate is used on the cabinets to add a luxurious touch.
The luxurious feel continues in the master bedroom, with cove lighting fitted around the oval-shaped false ceiling – this parallels the design of an ovalshaped backlit mirror in the master bathroom. The design of the gold trimmings used on the cabinets in the living room extends to this bathroom, adding a touch of elegance to the private space, while also providing a consistent design language in the apartment.
