The feeling of warmth and homeliness is palpable in this 5-room Design, Build & Sell Scheme (DBSS) flat. This is where married couple of 5 years, Ismail and Asrina, has called home since May 2009..
Let's find out the inspiration behind this home at The Premiere@Tampines, Singapore's first condo-style public housing built by a private developer.
Drawing inspiration from contemporary Bali and Thai influences, the living area is wrapped in various shades of brown, red and yellow. The feature wall follows the design of a raw Thai silk and cove lighting is used to create the desired Bali-Thai ambience. Furnished with items carefully sourced from various antique shops locally as well as overseas, the whole room exudes a feeling of calmness and serenity.
The chandelier is a nice, elegant touch to the dining area. A slim side table was designed specially to complement the hanging picture on the wall, while the large framed mirror gives the illusion of spaciousness.
A corner of the dining room was converted into a study area for the children. The bookshelf cleverly doubles up as a partition separating the study from the dining room.
A vintage Dutch colonial garden chair is placed at the balcony, acting as an anchor to the theme of the house. This is a laid-back relaxing corner where the family hangs over the weekends.
A master bedroom with simple clean lines. The earthy and warm colours bring out the coziness of the room.
