MICHELE KOH MOROLLO Michele is a big fan of Mid-Century Modern design—she enjoys scouring through vintage furniture stores in Hong Kong, where she now lives. In this issue, she explores a sculptural selection of outdoor lighting pieces (page 48) as well as inspiring bathroom vanity ideas to create a stylish space that also caters to your needs and lifestyle (page 150).

editor’s note

Every place I visit, I always look for a commanding view of the city. I have a few favourites, and they don’t always require being on top of the tallest skyscraper. I love looking back to Hong Kong island while on the Star Ferry, and recently, I enjoyed taking in the snow-laden rooftops of Tallinn’s medieval old town in Estonia from a small hilltop. Surely, I’m not the only one drawn to the cityscape whether it’s viewing it from up above or admiring it on street level. This collective desire alone displays the allure and power of architecture. While Singapore Tatler Homes primarily covers interior design, we chose to focus on architecture in this issue. For without a beautiful shell, it is harder to achieve beautiful interiors. Often, the most stunning…

WORLD OF WONDER A lot goes into the creation of a hotel, especially when it’s a passion project like The Siam in Bangkok. The brainchild of actor-musician Krissada Sukosol Clapp, the striking black-and-white hotel houses his enviable collection of antiques, imbuing every nook with a soulful character. The story behind its creation and evolution is lovingly captured in the book Our World—launched just in time for the hotel’s fifth anniversary. “A hotel is a work of art and every single one has a story to tell,” he explains about the intention behind the book’s publication. Overflowing with beautiful photos of the insanely photogenic space, it’s a tome that’s as much of a labour of love as the hotel itself. thesiamhotel.com STATE OF PLAY Add conversation starters to your rooms with the eclectic array…

THE GREAT ROOM Design has the power to directly influence how we feel—and it’s with this thought in mind that The Great Room was conceived. Its lofty goal is to “change the way you feel about going to work” and, with spaces seemingly plucked from a plush hotel lounge, it can easily inspire people to come to work and even linger. The newest location in Centennial Tower is decidedly sophisticated and should have no trouble attracting its target audience of “grown-ups with a start-up spirit”, as founder Jaelle Ang describes them. thegreatroomoffices.com BARDO Co-working spaces are more than just stylish places—they aim to create a community of like-minded individuals. Situated inside members club 1880, Bardo benefits from its ready-made network since its tenants must also be members. The 54-seat space sees a curated…

Tell us about Diptyque’s creative process. We work closely with a perfumer and illustrator together in a collaborative process; sometimes it starts with an illustration, a scent, or a memory that we want to reproduce. One of the three co-founders, Desmond Knox-Leet, is a painter; he thought of using the raw materials of a fragrance in the way that a painter would use colour pigments to create an olfactory landscape. His artistic background is also why the illustration featured on each perfume is so important to us—it’s always on the bottle, handmade and created in ink. In your opinion, what makes a good home fragrance? A good home fragrance should make you feel good; it’s also very much dependent on the atmosphere that you want to create. The candle gives a consistent, long-lasting…
