The home is newly built, special attention had to be paid to the architraving, windows and door design, adding paneling and ceiling details to recreate the style. The brief was to recreate the grandeur and romance of life in colonial Singapore, while reinterpreting it in a fresh and contemporary way. The client requested formal public space, with a glamorous feel for entertaining and relaxed private spaces with a sense of easy living and an emphasis on freshness, infused with optimism. Master Bedroom To capitalize on the abundance of light, the designers selected a fresh palette. The pearlized wall covering, reflected light in a way that paint never can giving a warmer finish than a cold hard painted wall. Shots of blue balanced the heat of pinks and oranges. The shaggy rug and sheepskin throw added texture to the scheme. The curtains were hung high above the windows on acrylic rods for a light fresh feel. Their verticality drew the eye balancing the relatively short windows. Dining Room The walls were wrapped in a bold black and white stripe, hung horizontally for a modern twist. The chairs were covered in a chartreuse fabric echoing the hints of lime that peppered the formal areas. The designers designed the octagonal dining table to complement the odd contours of the room; its shape was echoed in the pattern on fabric. Family Room The designers retained a colonial feel, through the proportions and interior architecture. However, the feeling was very different to the entertaining areas. The palette was fresh and neutral creating a sense of tranquility. The designers selected distressed finishes, in contrast to the polished finishes in the formal rooms. The sofas are in distressed leather. Spills just wipe off and scuffs added to the patina. The coffee table was an old tree root. 010
