10 Stunning Yishun Homes That Depict Heartland Living

April 1, 2015
BOOKMARK

Nestled deep within the heartlands of the North, Yishun town area is gaining popularity among homeowners. From the recent developments of several property launches of HDBs and private homes to the rising number of facilities and hipster cafes, Yishun is no longer a sleepy town but a vibrant hub.

We scooped up these gems that define heartland living at its best; so beautifully done up that you would want to invite your neighbours in.

1. Go back in time with this home that channels an industrial vibe of a 1970s shophouse. From the wired mesh on cabinets, to the red brick walls and even down to the nitty gritty such as playing up on the electrical wiring in the dining area, no effort was spared in the creation of this home. Peranakan tiles and rustic woody touches add a quaint finishing touch to this quirky look.

2. A stark contrast but by no doubt need loads of courage; this industrial-minimalist home dared to bare with doing away excessive furnishings despite having a large expanse of space. Instead, it chose to warm up the bare look with funky retro elements and warm lightings throughout the house.

4. An avid toy collector, this homeowner’s love of toys definitely shows in the thorough incorporation of toys within the home. Shelves of toys are found throughout the home, with varying heights and widths between the partitions so that the layout is kept interesting. To complement the whimsical feel of the home, the ceiling lamp in the dining room recreates the effect of a forest thicket by casting shadows of branched trees in the interior.

5. The treasure trove of this home – definitely the room which stores the homeowners’ toy collection! Deviating from the earthy, neutral tones and clean lines that define the rest of the home, this room with its darker tones and modern design scheme demonstrates that even within a home, there can be variations in the design elements.

6. Reflecting a fascination with geometry, this home is literally out of the box. The mixture of curves and angular lines in the bedroom adds a playful vibe while also giving visual texture to the space. Similarly, the bookshelf in the study, with its slanted partitions channels a fun vibe and makes studying or working in this room a more light-hearted endeavour.

10. This home reflects the logic of minimalist Scandinavian design in its bright, airy spaces and neutral, earthy colour scheme. Rather than full walls, partial walls with wooden platforms surrounding them are used to make an already large space appears bigger than it actually is. In the kitchen, dangling lights above the counter but below the top cabinets are a charming addition that complements the similar pair of dangling lights atop the dining area. This is one home that is perfect for organising gatherings in!
