Not everyone has the luxury of space at home. Hence when we were commissioned by the owner of this roomy HDB flat to design the interiors, we wanted to highlight that expansive space in the hall and fill the house with as much natural daylight as possible.
The original kitchen is very dim, as the window is situated at the far end. By removing the wall which divides the hall and the kitchen, we divided the kitchen into two zones - one open kitchen for casual food preparation and the other for 'heavy' cooking needs. Overall, there are four loosely defined living spaces - the dry kitchen, a central dining area, a seating/ TV area and a study corner.
By using an eclectic mix of chic contemporary and soft Scandinavian elements, we seek to breathe character and personality into this home. Using painting, adding color highlights in the woodwork and introducing a contrasting mix of textures, photographic prints and lighting around the house, a restful family living environment can be achieved. If well planned, a home can effectively tell a human story and not just look like a show flat.
