May 25, 2015
BOOKMARK

Just like birds building their nests stick by stick, homeowners put in a lot of heart and effort to transform bare and empty houses into homes to call their own.

Through Qanvast, some homes end up being an inspiration to others - giving them ideas to imagine and create their own dream homes.

As homeowners get more discerning and tasteful, it’s no surprise the battle for the most popular homes is getting fiercer, with the best of the best in the running this year.

Without further ado, here are the most popular homes categorised by Singapore’s favourite interior styles – Scandinavian, minimalist, eclectic, industrial and contemporary.

Scandinavian

The Scandinavian-style is once again the most popular interior style in Singapore. It seems like Singaporeans just cannot resist the beauty and practicality of neutral colours, wood-grain textures, and chic décor.

1. A monochromatic colour scheme and sleek lines made this 3-room flat a lot more spacious and airy. The bedroom, however, takes on a different style with warm lighting and fancier elements for a cosier ambience.

Minimalist

Clutter and complicated design are big no-nos in today’s world. It’s even said that a minimalistic interior is good for your health! Believe it or not, simplicity calms the mind and balances the soul.

3. Furnished with simple but practical furniture, this homely apartment is perfect for just about anyone. What’s more, the wood feature wall along the corridor adds a sophisticated touch to the design.

Eclectic

It’s hard to define the eclectic style. But the concept behind it is straightforward - integrate styles and elements from different time periods and origins harmoniously. Yes, distinctive details can be thoughtfully connected to produce one coherent design.

5. The theme of this home, “In Paris with love”, is well reflected throughout the apartment. Even then, special attention should be given to the truly French luxurious master bedroom and one-of-a-kind bathtub.

Industrial

There’s something charming about the raw and dynamic quality of the Industrial look. It has taken Singapore by storm since being introduced here. To nail this style, one has to play with the juxtaposition of unfinished elements and clean, flat surfaces.

7. What makes this home a favourite is how multi-dimensional it is. The space takes on all kinds of elements; raw and worn textures, patterns, metallics, and bright colours, you name it. Yet, instead of being cluttered and chaotic, the interior is easy on the eyes – an impressive feat.

8. This 3-room apartment seems to have no lack of space with its simple Industrial approach. Not deterred by the small master bedroom space, a glass chamber was carved out to become a nifty walk-in closet.

Contemporary

Contemporary interior design is often confused with the modern interior design. The latter refers to a clean-lined and geometrical design style that was created in 1919. Contemporary design, however, is about what’s trending today, right now.

9. With details that make good conversation starters, this is indeed a cool home to own. Take the dining space as an example, you may ask yourself, “Why have one lamp when you can have five?”
