1/6

If not for the tropical plants outside Calvin Chan and Zoe Luo's home, this four-storey house, part of a cluster housing development in Bukit Timah, may well have been in Copenhagen, Sweden or Oslo.

There are white-washed walls, light wood panelling and shelves, with several pieces of artwork bought from Moderna Museet, the contemporary art museum in Stockholm, to create that Scandinavian look.

The furniture, in particular the Eames Molded Plywood Chair and Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base, are by American designers Charles and Ray Eames, but have that look typical of Scandinavian design - clean lines with a timeless appeal.

"We wanted a home to have a non-tropical feel, and yet still feel warm," says Mr Chan, a partner in a law firm. Ms Luo, a full-time mum, adds: "We love white, so we wanted to make the backdrop of our home as white as possible."
