House Tour: Modern Victorian Tampines flat filled with floral motifs

By day, first-time homeowner Sharon Tan runs Full Bleed, her small graphic design studio. By night and on weekends, she puts on an interior designer hat for her recently set up Millimetre Interiors.

When she got the keys to her apartment in Tampines, it had not crossed her mind to design her own home. "But as I looked around, I realised I didn't want a home that was someone else's idea of a sanctuary," she says. "I wanted a deeply personal space, something to call my own entirely."

While others would have picked Scandinavian or contemporary chic as their design theme, Ms Tan picked Victorian and floral. "I wanted all the detail of that period without being musty or ostentatious," she says.
