House Tour: A bachelorette's compact condo home with a mixture of trendy styles
This cosy small-space home belongs to a design-savvy bachelorette, who appreciates various interior design styles.
For her home, designer Kelvin Teo of Space Sense combined the popular retro, vintage, industrial and Scandinavian styles — all in a compact 1+1 bedroom condo unit!
In the entrance area, a stone wall with an asymmetrical design allows for creative display without taking up too much space. This sets the tone for the home's look, and the old movie poster is a personalised touch.
Next to the entrance, the kitchen cabinets were retained, but Kelvin added graphic stickers to it to give it the hip cafe-style look.
He also incorporated lots of mirror panels in the home, to reflect more light and visually enlarge the space. The mirror panels are used to conceal the shoe cabinet, bomb shelter and the entrance to the bedroom.
The living area is multi-functional, and is also the dining area and study.
Kelvin designed the entertainment unit such that the TV is wall-mounted as part of an inbuilt console that does not take up any floor space.
On one side of the living area, an open display, bookshelf, study desk and dining counter are combined in a linear feature. In the corner, a green Chesterfield sofa adds a pop of colour and ornamentation to the space.
The balcony was laid with artificial turf, and decorated with an old-school chair, vintage-look side table and wall decor.
Since the bedroom space is small, Kelvin designed the bed to have a floating effect, which reduces visual bulk.
The bed design features a customised headboard with woodtones and checker plate details — an unconventional use of materials for an eye-catching industrial-inspired focal point!
The spare room was turned into a walk-in wardrobe.
