the colours, lines, and forms that shape a home
Making the conscious decision to base their new home off their preferred colours and forms, this spacious 4-room BTO was made by blending shades of sea blue and grey with shapely curved forms and straight lines. Further inspiration was drawn from meandering streams that are made of both curved and straight lines.
Take the first step into this home and one will notice just how spacious the living area is. Painted grey with accents of blue to allow the colour to stand out more and finished off with black and white venetian blinds, the entire room gives off a calm sensation – the perfect way to start and end every day.
A pre-existing wall belonging to one of the bedrooms was hacked to open up the living area more and a curved television console cum settee decked in the same blue and grey that adorns the entire apartment replaces the spot where the wall used to be. The television console hides a strip of LED lights that illuminates the area, just like how sunlight brightens up a body of water when light reflects off the surface.
The settee is partially connected to the structural wall next to it that was also shaped to form a beam with a soft, rounded corner and stretches out to create a study table that doubles up as a backrest and mini bookshelf.
In a similar fashion, the kitchen is equipped with the same cove lighting hidden underneath the cool grey overhead cabinets and lights up the light wood kitchen counters. The entire kitchen is accented with black for a more modern look and a stronger colour contrast against the light colour palette. It is then finished with a glass door with black handles that allows a good amount of light to flow in, while reiterating the image of streams that inspired the concept of this home.
The master bedroom bears a slightly darker colour palette as compared to the rest of the house, with the intention of giving off a soothing vibe to quickly help lull one to sleep. Dark blue subway tiles line half of the walls, serving as both an embellishment and a bedhead. The wardrobe was designed with a curved corner and a dark grey textured surface with black handles, again echoing the homeowners’ preferences that sparked off the inspiration for this home.
