The use of sea and sky shades, as well as a play on geometry, give this home a nautical-inspired look with a stylish modern twist.
Colour dramatically enhances a space, and in the home of Si Jian Wen and Sharon Teo, the calming cool shades of blues and greens define the interiors.
Clean, Contemporary Interiors
As Sharon’s favourite colour is mint, it was a starting point for the flat’s colour palette, the couple say.
But apart from uplifting colours, designer Si Jian Xin of Wynk Collaborative also incorporated geometrical accents, in the form of furnishings and materials, to enhance the home’s clean, contemporary look.
Open Concept Home
The home has an open layout, with the option to close up various spaces — the master bedroom, study and kitchen — using flush doors and slide-and-fold doors.
A creative way of disguising the bomb shelter’s ventilation fragmentation plate was to turn what is usually regarded as an eyesore into an “art piece”.
Jian Xin had it painted a metallic bronze tone and, coupled with a black wall-mounted lamp with a minimalist linear design installed below it, the wall that backdrops the dining area is likened to an abstract geometric installation.
Bay Window Storage
In the living area, discreet storage space is integrated with built-in benches in front of the windows.
Colour Blocking Kitchen
Colour blocking can be seen in the kitchen, which features vibrant colours and textured floor and wall surfaces.
Foundry Dining Table
The dining table is from Foundry, and the dining chairs are from Fritz Hansen from W. Atelier.
The bathrooms are jazzed up with contrasting mosaic tiles from Unlimited. The back-lit frameless mirror’s floating effect gives it a weightless look.
As there was no need for three bedrooms, the homeowners decided to combine two for a bigger master bedroom.
Dusty Colour Palette
Dusty shades give the room a calming feel, and the sleeping area is separated from the dressing and grooming area by a low built-in console.
$75,000 Renovation Cost
For the $75,000 renovation, mostly humble materials of paint, laminates and tiles were used, but applied imaginatively and tastefully, they bring out a simple beauty.
