| THE TIONG BAHRU SERIES | 57 Eng Hoon by asolidplan

Every time I discover a beautifully renovated Tiong Bahru flat, I always wished that HDB would build something like these charming white flats again.

This is a project by asolidplan.

The owner is a French art curator who wanted the apartment to be utilized as a partial gallery of her various work. I think the designer has delivered just that. Nothing over the top here. By thoughtfully stripping off the plasters of a few walls and beams, it allows the nostalgic elements and the owner’s art collection to be the main character of the apartment.

Luxurious Edge | A 2-storey apartment renovated by Studio Wills + Architects

This 2-storey apartment at The Arris located within Tanjong Pagar area in Singapore, looks just like those cool and stylish London homes that would be featured  in magazine like Livingetc.

Designed by Studio Wills + Architects, I really love the kitchen and the walk-in wardrobe concept of the master bedroom. The colour choice of black, blue with brass accents; and the use of a variety of textures and materials such as patterned tiles, marble and metal-framed doors created this very luxurious but edgy space. There is nothing I don’t like about this space :)

Small Space Living | Mid-century Luxury in a 520 Square Feet Apartment in Greenwich Village

Ending the year 2015 with my favourite topic – Small Space Living :)

This one is a New York city studio apartment belongs to architectural designer Greg Dufner. I really like the layout of this studio, where privacy is still preserved by carving out the sleeping area with a built-in bookcase as divider from the rest of the space. Every inch of the space looks just right.

It’s amazing how much style you can pack into a mere 520 square feet, and the mid-century flair is – oh so warm and luxurious.

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.
