House Tours: Black and white bungalow-inspired homes

When British expat Davina Stanley and her family first set their eyes on this 5,000 sqf, two-storey colonial bungalow in the Harbourfront area, it was a ramshackle mess with a tree even growing out of its roof. However, its resemblance to native English houses convinced the founder of interior design and event styling studio Paper & White to breathe new life into it. The end result is a relaxed resort look, with clean and modern lines. 

In the master bedroom, the combination of white-painted wood, wicker pendant lights and mahogany touches, makes for a refined spin on tropical aesthetics.
