What I’m going to current at this time is a challenge by one in every of our readers ( Max Tay : Uberdesignhouse , an inside designer based mostly in Singapore ). I’ve discovered his web site within the feedback part on this submit the place I was overhelmed by the variety of feedback ( 218 till now – WOW ) …Thank you all ! Now Max will inform us a couple of phrases about how he reworked a “Horror House” into a really lovely place, so let’s start … The home-owner sought out my providers after coming throughout one in every of my earlier work featured in an area design journal. It was one thing of a problem for me as a result of the house was in a deplorable state when I 1st seen it! The 30-yr-previous house had been rented out to varied tenants during the last decade and really sadly, the abuse was displaying. Now let’s see some earlier than and after footage with the lounge.
Paying homage to the age of the house and the home-owner’s love for vibrant funkily colored objects sourced from numerous flea markets across the regent, we got down to put collectively an inside that’s significantly influenced by the Austin Powers films!
With a decent price range, we targeted a lot of the constructed-in carpentry work within the kitchen and bed room wardrobe space. Not surprisingly, vibrant funky colors takes middle stage all through the condo. To give the dwelling space an fascinating focus, I painted ribbon strips of brown, orange and yellow that pulls the eyes throughout the pristine white background. Painting the strips in shiny enamel paint permits them to additional come out from the matt emulsion paint on the partitions! To full the look, I designed a free-shaped ceiling reduce-out in vibrant orange and a great polish returned the marble flooring to its glory days!
Built-in carpentry put in over a decade in the past has not stood the check of time. Existing flooring and partitions tiles within the loos and kitchen have been cracked and damaged in quite a few areas. Leakages and spalling concrete ceiling within the loos was merely horrible! However, amongst all these nightmares, the householders and I agreed that the one redeeming component of the condominium was the fabulous marble flooring within the Living Area. Not surprisingly, the marble flooring was the one factor we stored in the course of the demolition works! Now let’s see some earlier than and after footage with the kitchen space.
A decidedly darker and extra refined fashion was opted for the bed room to permit for a extra restful environment. To give it a way of connection to the remainder of the condo, I continued using wall colors in strips right here. Wallpaper in an identical color serves as a spotlight for the mattress-head space. I designed and commissioned a twin-function writing desk that permits a flat-display TV to be hung dealing with the sleeping space. A small crystal chandelier within the wardrobe space completes the look. Now let’s see some earlier than and after footage with the bed room space.
