6 Ideas to Steal from a Modern Asian Home in Singapore
Find out what can inspire you in this unique house designed by Michael Cu Fua of Ong & Ong
This two-storey house of a Malaysian-Chinese couple in Singapore is the kind of home that most of us can only dream about. Since it has an impressive size, valuable materials, and even its own elevator, this modern Asian home designed by Michael Cu Fua of Ong & Ong appears glamorous and luxurious.
Although we might not be able to afford something quite like this (yet!), there are still many design ideas that can inspire us. Here are the six things that you can learn from this sophisticated haven in the city:
Some homeowners think that a modern home can appear cold and uncomfortable. If you want to add warmth to a streamlined space, you can bring in a few wooden pieces.
RL Tip: Look for antique wooden items that have colored glass, capiz shells, mother-of-pearl details, and hand-painted touches.
You can make a simple and modest space seem more elegant with a crystal chandelier! Instead of buying an expensive new piece, you can find one in thrift shops along Evangelista St. in Makati. You can also look for secondhand lighting fixtures at online stores.
RL Tip: You can also paint one of your walls! Choose a playful pink-purple hue or a dramatic midnight blue.
What are you doing this weekend? You should consider painting your kitchen walls and cabinets white! A few coats of white paint can easily brighten up your place.
If you want to create your own accent wall, you may want to hang up a curtain! Although this particular one is plain and simple, you can choose something with a great color or eye-catching pattern.
Although not all of us can create a bathroom that could easily belong in a five-star hotel, we can still make our personal space more visually appealing. You can consider installing lights, painting one wall black, and putting up a big mirror.
One of the things that surprised us the most in this two-storey place is the bare concrete wall in the piano room! Although it is not something that you would see in most homes, we think that it looks surprisingly cool.
You may also want to keep some of the concrete walls in your own place! To keep the space from looking too dirty or cluttered, you may want to choose white modern furniture pieces.
