young at heart

I enjoy looking at homes with a minimalist theme, not just because they bring out my meditative nature, but also because deep down inside, I know that I will never be able to lead a minimalist lifestyle or resist the urge to fill my space with objects that remind me of people I love.While some believe that minimalism injects a sense of lightness within a home, I feel that it also creates an atmosphere of overwhelming solemnity and coldness.So how should one go about deciding on an interior style? I’ve been asked that question many times, and my answer is always to opt for one that makes you feel as comfortable as a child in a candy store. A home should evoke the same sense of pleasure and happiness.…

brighten up

It’s a sad thing that many homeowners in Singapore are cautious when it comes to their home interior colours. Opting for a neutral palette is a safe but somewhat boring approach, and results in many homes looking like variations of the same Nordic-inspired theme. If you want to avoid a cookie-cutter interior, don’t shy away from the idea of having a brightly coloured feature wall. You can even take a leaf out of others’ book, such as this particular home featured in Volume.Here,the homeowner-slash-designer decided on a whimsical feel with orange, red and lilac shades. The trick is to pick loud colours from the same hue on the colour wheel, while going all out in terms of scale and proportion. So be brave and have fun designing your…

go for gold

NOW PICTURE THIS PANTONE 4515C Keep to bold lines and forms throughout the space for a modern touch, such as opting for Hermes’ Bleus d’Ailleurs dinnerware collection.

Look around and you will likely pick up hints of the shade in various incarnations, ranging from the rich honey hue to rose, copper and even bronze versions. In this instance (right), however, the metallic colour is used not as an accent, but as an impressive conversation starter in the room’s decor.
