Neighbourhoods in the east are known for a few things. Good food, lush parks, a charming blend of Singapore’s new and traditional cultures, and judging from some of these homes located along East Coast, the posh estate has residential architecture and interiors! Take a peek into how the well-heeled live.
1. East meets West is a tried and tested concept favoured by many, mainly because it can be interpreted in a myriad of ways. Here, the architects have incorporated a traditional Chinese motif for the façade’s screen, and contrasted it with raw concrete slabs. The same juxtaposition is applied to the interiors, which blends aesthetics of the past and present exquisitely.

2. Sleek, modern, and straightforward, this home is designed with a bold attitude that imbues its spaces with a grand presence. But rather than intimidating, the sprawling interiors are made cosy with the presence of natural elements such as wood, stone, and a stunning water feature at the courtyard.

3. Luxe modern living done right: this massive property ticks all the right boxes for someone who enjoys the finer things in life. It includes a jacuzzi attached to the pool, home theatre, well-equipped gym, and bathrooms that are parallel with those found in the presidential suites of prestigious hotels. On top of that, all the features are designed with a masculine urban style that’s simply made to impress.

4. Luxury can be narrated in different ways, and for some, it doesn’t have to be showy. This tastefully decorated home lies on the cooler end of the spectrum, with mid-century modern furniture, movie paraphernalia, and a cosy kitchen for a refined yet understated appeal.

5. To keep things timeless, stick to toned down interiors and downplay trendier influences. This is executed wonderfully in this home, which has a simple contemporary design throughout, and features white marble, dark wood, and grey accents. The muted shade of graphic tiles that clad one of the bathrooms adds a funky yet pared-down twist.

6. This fabulous property is made up of interesting contrasts, played out mainly between raw industrial and warm natural elements. With dark wooden surfaces next to black accents, bamboo poles sandwiched by concrete slabs, and glossy marble framed with textural wood, every room is compelling in its own right. It's a home made for entertaining and relaxation.

7. Nothing states upscale like a double-storey entrance that leads into a living room with soaring ceilings. By keeping the furniture clean-cut and decorations minimum, the sense of space is heightened even further. The use of rugged stone tiles on the feature wall and pillars adds a nice and cosy mountain lodge-feel to the contemporary space.
