2. A wintery pastel colour scheme in the living-dining areaHome: 4-room flat in Bukit BatokDesigner: Ben Teo, Sheldon Toh, and Joanna Chia of Mr Shopper StudioDog-friendly materials are disguised by the soft, cool hues used throughout this home. In the L-shaped open-plan living and dining area, the wintery pastel colour scheme is introduced through a statement-making geometric feature wall. The cool mint-sage hue is carried throughout the adjacent wall, balanced by white and blond wood elements. The other pastel colours on the feature wall – pale pink and blue-grey – are echoed through the carefully-selected furniture and accessories.
Design superstar Karim Rashid, whom I interviewed years ago when he was in Singapore for Veuve Clicquot, said that painting is his preferred way of bringing his favourite colour (pink) to a room. It’s economical and easy, and it will last for several years – or you can freshen up with a new colour every year.
The couple has a pet dog, so there was also a concern about using materials that can withstand the dog’s scratching habits. “They hoped to minimise using furniture made of wood and replace it with a more sturdy material. It was a little challenging as their theme is Scandinavian, a style which features lots of wood,” Teo says.
