Around The World In 9 Homes
Homes can be a window into another world, so let your imagination soar and travel across the globe as we visit nine spectacular houses that carry the flavours of foreign lands and inspire us to go on vacation.
Modern European Lodge House
Eclectic without compromising on space and comfort, the varying designs in different parts of the house are united by the consistency of the wood elements. Throw in clusters of fresh baby’s breath and you’ve got yourself a modern lodge that pays homage to nature.
Interior Designer: Akihaus
Looking more like a luxe villa in a Balinese resort, this condo utilises dark wood furnishings with ornate carvings and unique home accents to express a Southeast Asian flavour that brings sacred temples and sandalwood to mind. This is a home we wouldn’t mind coming back to, if we get to pretend that we are in Bali for a while.
Interior Designer: Space Factor
Cost of renovation: $240,000
Melbourne’s Underground Café
Graffiti in your house? Only if you are cool enough to own a home like this. The homeowners’ eclectic touch is evident, from the unapologetic colour scheme to the kitschy little knick-knacks that pop up around the house.
Interior Designer: Linear Space Concepts
Quaint English Charm
So prettily charming is this English-inspired condo at Blossom Residences! The use of bricks reminds us of a cottage nestled in the woods, and the contrast between the white brick wall and the stony, uneven wall shows us how two feature walls can look great together. The use of mid-tone wood furnishings propels the rustic appeal to another level.
Interior Designer: Living Gaia Interior
Location: Blossom Residences
Cost of renovation: $48,000
Summon the breathtaking beauty of Santorini by incorporating plenty of blues and white in your home. Think delicate lights that echo the fragile beauty of seashells, and nautical-inspired accents that will turn an ordinary apartment into a seaside resort that anyone in love with the sun and the sea will envy.
Interior Designer: Edge Interior
Cost of renovation: $35,000
Rise of the Orient
Channel the Orient by going traditional! To enhance the modern-meets-old-world vibe, go for antique furniture and heavy Chinese vases with vivid details, but keep the look soft and urban with white filmy curtains and solid-coloured sofas. We promise you that guests who step into this home will be hit with a wave of old-school nostalgia.
Interior Designer: D’ Marvel Scale
Cost of renovation: $59,000
Japanese Zen House
Your home is your sanctuary, and this minimalistic apartment in Yishun illustrates this notion the best. The light, earthy colour scheme helps to keep one’s soul at ease, and you can channel your inner Zen by sitting on the wooden platform while admiring the beauteous work of art on the amazing feature wall.
Interior Designer: The Interior Lab
Cost of renovation: $42,000
A Loft in New York City
This gorgeous landed property makes us think of upscale lofts in vibrant New York City. The quirky bubble lights, red brick feature wall and earthy shade furniture amplify the chic charm of this estate. Sophisticated yet worldly, like a New Yorker on the go.
Interior Designer: The 80s Studio
Cost of renovation: $220,000
Old World Hollywood Glamour
Picture the glamour of old Hollywood where debutantes and socialites mingle with fine champagne, but in a modern setting. This apartment captures the glitz and glamour of Old Hollywood with a rich gold-toned colour scheme and fine accents such as a crystal chandelier. If you have a million-dollar personality and love luxury, this apartment style is for you.
Interior Designer: Aiden-T
Cost of renovation: $60,000
