This black and white colonial terrace house was transformed into a calm oasis of white when the new owner took over. He kept the home simple to allow his unique trinkets from around the world do the talking. Check it out down below!
Some of the owner's favourite books, ornaments and sourvenirs are placed on a shelf from Grafunkt. The coffee tables are also from the same shop, as are a few other pieces in the house.
To take full advantage of the abundance of light this home receives, it was essential that the original frosted glass windows were changed to clear ones. The knitted doll of fashion designer John Galliano (on the shelf) was bought in Bali.
An arabesque screen, part of the home's original design, zones the ground-floor space while still allowing visual connectivity between the entranceway and the living room.
The dining room, featuring a table and chairs from Habitat, is bright and airy, due to the copious amount of sunlight reflecting off its white walls and floor.
A street peddler's cart from Bangkok sits in a corner of the dining room, and functions as a display cabinet for objects signifiant in the owner's life. This includes a pair of dancing shoes from his years growing up in Denmark.
Along the upstairs hallway are a wall-hung kimono, a rosary from a gothic market in Barcelona and, on the floor, a vintageg Turkish shoe-polish kit.
A framed botanical painting from Taylor B is among the many art and decor objects in the home, which reflects the homeowner's eclectic taste in design.
The bedroom is quiet, serene and understatedly stylish with just the basic essentials, and old and new furniture.
