9 Homes In Tampines Show The Best Of East Side

July 9, 2015
BOOKMARK

Situated near industrial areas and heritage sites, the diverse mix of culture and ethnicity surrounding Tampines in a way determine how homes of the East side look like. Take a peek at these strong contenders in the East vs West clash.

1. This apartment has an easy-going charm about it. Cupboards of varied heights set below venetian blinds act as a good and interesting storage option which prevents clutter. The spaciousness of the apartment is also enhanced by the use of windows to separate the dining area and the kitchen. We can’t help but love the framed pictures of cute animals in the dining area!

2. Running across the wall and ceiling, the wooden panel with an uneven wooden tone is an interesting feature that breaks up the monotony of the living room. The bicycles which are attached one atop another to a metal pole are also a chic feature in this industrial home.

3. Sticking to a predominantly metallic and wood décor scheme gives this home an effortless industrial feel. Black wooden frames which intersect along the white brick wall in the living room add a sense of definition to the living room décor and leave room for future interior design possibilities. Meanwhile, the bedroom is “Fifty Shades of Grey” worthy as grey and metallic tones are used to their best effect in creating a sophisticated space.

4. We think it is pretty neat how this Tampines home looks effortlessly put together to result in a space that is undeniably industrial. In the living room, storage cabinets which resemble wooden crates give a “just unpacked” feeling. This feel is heightened by the usage of wooden planks which cross diagonally across the open shelving. An unfinished brick wall tops off the “work in progress” industrial feel of the space.

5. Light suffuses every inch of this beautifully designed minimalist home. Venetian blinds welcome bright daylight into the living room while the many dangling lights above the dining area, with their multi-coloured wiring, exude a cheerful, playful feel. This home certainly proves that one does not need a ton of furniture in order to make an impression.

6. From bean bags shaped like five stones tossed haphazardly on the living room floor to seat cushions which resemble potato chip packets and even the rattan bag hanging over the bed with sprigs of dried flowers in it, it is obvious that the homeowners of this retro home understand that attention to detail is crucial when trying to pull off a successful retro look. As the wall decal states – “take it or leave it” and we feel that this home is definitely a keeper!

7. Here is a home that also uses Peranakan tiling but to different effect; as part of the design of the kitchen counter, the Peranakan tiles, when juxtaposed with the unfinished white brick wall and light coloured wooden flooring gives off a contemporary vibe. Similarly, the bedroom and kitchen rely on light coloured wood to channel a modern feel.

8. Traditionalists at heart, these homeowners have created a home that reflects their love of tradition. Classic Chinese design is evident in the octagonal display shelving besides the TV screen, while furniture such as the sofa, coffee table and cabinet, look as though they came straight out of an old Chinese motion picture. The Peranakan tiling in a muted shade of grey on the kitchen floor also contributes to the traditional feel of the home.

9. Bright, airy and earthy; a good Scandinavian home should strive to achieve these ideals and this Tampines apartment has certainly hit the mark. Incorporating a fish tank into the wall cabinets is a great way to save space and at the same time, its design is a great conversation starter.
