@collectivedesignsg – The Twilight Kitchen. This fiercely masculine kitchen is exemplified by a heavily-grained dark wood cabinetry and accentuated by refined metallic accents. Notice the matt black cabinet handles, chrome sink fittings and glass and stainless steel appliances. Then appreciate the delicate glass bauble pendant lights, bronzed mirrors and the lighting bolts of white across the quartz worktops.
@collectivedesignsg – Create gaiety and fun in a kid’s room without coming across as childish. Think lush fabrics for window coverings and headboards; burnished leather for the boys’ and plush velvet for the girls. Play with shapes; a perfectly round reading nook in terracotta-orange and the charming ‘house-like’ headboard. Top it all off with a clean cool grey or a quirky metallic-lined ivory wallpaper. Magic!
@collectivedesignsg – Hardwood flooring is made by laying strips of solid wood adjacent to each other. When the strips are shorter than 200mm, and are laid in specific designs, it’s known as parquet. Whether it’s hardwood flooring or parquet, they both weather naturally and elegantly and are easier to maintain than other materials. They can also be sanded and varnished when required. Solid wood floors absorb sound well, and provide a lovely warmth under bare feet.
@collectivedesignsg – The Hamptons Style is a classic coastal decorating style that exudes casual elegance, featuring subdued colours, natural materials and lots of space. The combination of vintage-inspired hanging lights, handle-less Shaker cabinets and wooden flooring give this kitchen a classic yet timeless look.
