A 4-Room HDB Flat Dressed-up in Interesting Patterned Tiles by The Scientist

Patterned tiles are quite a trend in the Singapore interior design scene these 2 years. We frequently see Spanish tiles and Peranakan tiles being used in cafes and restaurants, and they are increasingly popular in residential homes too. A small “dose” of patterned tiles will add enough visual drama to any cookie-cutter HDB flats. This 4-room HDB apartment at Marine Parade is a project by The Scientist. There are a lot of interesting vignette to look at within the apartment, but the focal point has got to be the kitchen, which is clad in colourful tiles of different patterns on the floor and on each side of the walls. Bold move by the designer and the home owners, as layering patterns on patterns is not the easiest task. The effort paid off well in this unique home, it looks fabulous. MP 07

Adora Green, Yishun by The Scientist

When Adora Green DBSS project was just launched, I visited the show flat in Yishun with my then-boyfriend (husband now!). The was probably the first show flat we visited in the process of house hunting. We didn’t get the flat, but I could still remember the big balcony that comes with the unit.

And time flies, I think Adora Green was completed since last year.

Today I going to share a new project from The Scientist, which is a 990 sqf, 4-room apartment at Adora Green.

The leather sofa and pop art print in the living room, patterned tiles on dining room walls, sort of remind me of the eclectic, hipster apartments in Barcelona that I’ve seen from the Airbnb site.

The “uneven” storage cabinet, is another focal point of the space. I like the laminate used here, it brings out just the right amount of rawness for a refined industrial look.

Love everything in this room, especially the rug! It is essentially an “as-is” room from HDB, but look so cool with all the right choice of furniture and soft-furnishings.

Jardin at Dunearn Road by The Scientist

This is a 1776 sqft, 3-bedroom loft unit of Jardin nestled in the idyllic Bukit Timah district.

I like how The Scientist has done up the loft unit in this project. It looks classy, expensive and luxurious (fitting the prestigious profile of the condominium), but it doesn’t look too “old”. The walls are kept in crisp white, pairing with the tasteful choice of mid-century-esque furniture that brings in a younger vibe of sophistication to the loft.

Love the olive green curvy sofa that adds colour and visual interest to the living room. Even the propeller ceiling fan is so stylish!

Black and white gallery wall, modern glossy white side table, ceramics vases and a wish bone chair form a good looking vignette.
