Room Tour: Britannia Rules This Boys' Room
Heritage inspires their bedroom's design for these boys who are growing up away from their family's home countries
Room at a Glance: Shared Boys’ Bedroom
Who lives here: An Australian-British family with three kids
Location: Sentosa Cove
Designer: Melisa White Interiors
White took her design cue from a London bus print used to upholster a child-size Egg chair she found at quirky furniture shop Fred Lives Here. She then chose “a classic British colour palette of red, white and blue to complement the egg chair and to inject personality into this new space for the boys. It is playful and colourful to the core!”
“I designed the layout specifically so that another full size single bed could replace the baby cot in future,” White says.
Little quintessentially British touches complete the design: Paddington Bear, a retro Kombi and London double-decker, and even that red telephone box.
