For the house proud owners of this bungalow in Siglap, they knew exactly what they wanted for their dwelling – all the charm that the old world can bring, complete with contemporary updates from modern times. Walking through the stunning house, one gets the feeling that the owners are romantic souls with a distinct appreciation for days gone by.
From the mix of traditional and contemporary paintings adorning the walls and the fully timbered flooring to the old school ceiling fans, the effect is semi-rustic, semi-oriental and completely charming with a very down-to-earth feel. This mish-mash style is probably the influence of the husband's Eurasian and the wife's Chinese-Peranakan roots.
So make yourself comfortable, come take a walk with us and get ready to be enthralled.
Clever use of an oriental partition. It gives a touch of privacy while also giving a sneak peek to the rest of the house.
The piano where the couple entertains guests. This is part of the master room which opens up to the pool area. You can almost hear the tinkling of the piano as the guests mingle by the poolside, sipping champagne.
The table doubles up as a functional dining furniture as well as a showcase for beautiful jade pieces.
