USING LIGHT COLOURS HELPS KEEP THE INTERIORS LOOKING CLEAN AND TIMELESS.
A three-and-a-half-storey semi-detached house with seven bedrooms, this home has a colour palette of grey, brown and white. “It gives the home a timeless look,” says principal designer and director Selina Tay. She retained the home’s original dark brown marble fl ooring, and contrasted it with lighter colours to brighten up the house. In the living room, an L-shaped sofa in light grey sits on a similarly hued carpet with a geometric pattern; the round wood coff ee table adds texture and contrast.
Colourful home accessories jazz up the overall palette of grey, brown and white.
The colour palette of the interiors extend outdoors, with the use of outdoor furniture in grey and white.
Selina cleverly added wood strips to camoufl age the unsightly structural beam.
A structural beam that stands between the bar counter and living area was camoufl aged with vertical wood strips; display shelves appear to extend from it, and allow the homeowners to showcase their decorative objects. The simple dining area in front of the bar counter features a clear glass dining surface to make the space look bigger. Hung low, the modern chandelier is a statement piece. What was originally a pond in the outdoor area was fi lled up and converted into a timber-decked lounge area. Dressed with outdoor furniture, the now functional space is where homeowners and their guests chill out.
The kitchen island offers ample cooking space.
The interestingly designed legs of the dining table add a unique detail to the home.
DIFFERENT MATERIALS AND T EXTURES ADD EXCITEMENT TO A SPACE .
This two-storey holiday home is a dual-key condominium apartment with four bedrooms on the first level and one bedroom on the second. Designed with a contemporary style, principal designer and director Selina Tay and interior designer Vonda Susanto gave the home a neutral palette comprising white, brown and beige shades. Home furnishings and accessories in striking designs and colours provide the highlights here. In the living room, a floral motif carpet in blue serves as the centrepiece of the space. A consistent colour scheme pulls the look together, while materials which carry texure add dimension to the interiors. These include the natural silver travertine wall of the dining area, and the light wood veneer on the storage cabinets facing it.
Neutral-coloured accessories such as this bedside lamp is anything but boring, with intricate weave patterns on the base which add texture to its design.
When lit, the lights on the display shelf next to the dining table add ambience to the space.
For contrast, the dining table is dark wood; it sits between the kitchen and living area. A display niche, which cuts into the wall of storage cabinets in the dining area, allows the homeowners to showcase their favourite knick-knacks and souvenirs. The colours are carried through to the master bedroom as well. Large windows allow natural light to illuminate the interiors of the room, filtered through light gold-tone curtains, which give the space a hotelstyle look.
Full-height windows in the living room keep the interiors of the home naturally lit.
A decorative mirror from Pure Interior adds a touch of luxury.
STATEMENT FURNITURE IN BOLD COLOURS GIVE CHARACTER TO THE HOME.
A family of four lives in this three-storey intermediate terrace with four bedrooms. Designed by principal designer and director, Selina Tay and senior interior designer, Maribel De La Cruz, the interiors were designed to resemble a modern Tudor house. Right off the bat, the chilli-red main door makes a striking and unique fi xture. Although the home features neutral tones, some unique furniture pieces, such as the redand- wood courthouse chairs by the staircase and a blue sofa in the living room, make the diff erent spaces stand out. The living room, which is fully clad in marble fl ooring, opens up to the patio; the large doorway allows lots of natural light and ventilation to enter.
Neutral tones don’t mean boring interiors when cleverly paired with furniture which have impressive forms or colours.
The chilli-red main door serves as a welcoming entrance.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has parquet tiles placed in a herringbone pattern. The designers used a darker shade of wood for the walk-in wardrobe doors, to create a cosier and more intimate space, which contrasts with the bright bedroom area. White and black is the colour theme of the master bathroom, with white marble wall tiles, black granite fl oor tiles, and a dramatically streaked silver Portoro marble countertop. In the shower area, Bisazza mosaics in a shimmering mix of white and gold tones bring texture and a sense of luxury to the space.
The patio is the perfect place for the homeowners to relax in and where guests can gather, while taking advantage of the natural environment.
A luxurious use of materials makes the master bathroom look classy.
