A Bachelor Pad’s Parisian Charm in Singapore | by LAANK

Find this walk-up apartment at Haig Road designed by LAANK to be totally charming and inspiring.

The colour scheme of grey and midnight blue walls, punctuated with doors in red and cobalt blue, sets an interesting, fun and stylish tone for the space. Despite the splashes of colours, it still exudes a quite elegance that I really like. This reminds me of a modern, chic apartment in Paris. Something different and refreshing from the cookie-cutter designs around.

Restrained but Strikingly Eclectic | Notting Hill Townhouse by Suzy Hoodless

This five-storey townhouse in Notting Hill is an embodiment of restrained good taste and eclecticism, brought together by the amazing British designer Suzy Hoodless. It speaks modern, contemporary, and sophistication. Yet the graphics, geometrics patterns and bursts of stronger colours bring in the playful touch needed for a family home.

Lime green artwork and dusty pink curtain, who would have thought they worked so well together! (Also, the size of this sitting room is totally relatable to the apartment-sized living room that most of us have. If you are re-decorating, this could serve as perfect inspiration for a tasteful space)

A pleasant surprise – a giant diagonal black-and-white stripes appear out of nowhere in the muted kitchen that leads down to the media room and work den on the lower ground floor.
