How To Apply Pinterest Interior Ideas To Your HDB/Condo
When it comes to interior design ideas, you just can’t beat Pinterest. With a zillion styles and tips out there, it’s no wonder that most homeowners would confess to gathering ideas on their Pinterest boards before engaging interior designers.
The main gripe, however, is that some of these ideas cater mainly to the houses abroad and are not applicable to the local houses. We beg to differ. Here are 6 homes that have managed to bring their homeowners’ Pinterest dreams to life:
1. Black-framed Door
Forget the typical black-framed partition. These black-framed doors are an incredibly edgy and stylish when it comes to dividing and opening spaces. No more unsightly accordion or plastic bi-fold doors.

If you are one of those who ‘dig’ the monochrome loft vibe in your room, take cue from this bedroom in Dawson, Queenstown. Raise your bed on a platform and demarcate the spaces with a stylish door like this. Now truly, you have a Pinterest-worthy room for your #ootd.

2. Raw + Industrial Look
The industrial style looks best when paired with the aged/rundown look, as seen in lofts and warehouses overseas. To pull off that look tastefully without looking too ‘gung-ho’, this HDB here keeps things polished with a bright green chesterfield sofa, but yet managed to maintain that 'rundown' edgy look with a grilled bookcase and uneven textures.

3. English Country Kitchen
This English country-inspired kitchen reflects a traditional style but not without a modern twist on tradition. Black and white checkerboard tiles and white-painted cabinets conjure an image of the timeless era but it’s the bold shade of blue that really elevates the look and brightens the entire area.

4. Wood Headboard
It’s not often that you see that much wood in a bedroom so this bedroom, which comes with a wooden headboard that doubles-up as a wardrobe is a pleasant surprise. These wood textures complement one another well and really help to bring the entire resort theme together so you feel like you’re in a high-end Bali resort all the time.

5. Kids' Room
There is no better place to celebrate the joy of whimsicality and play than in a kid’s room. In this case, while the bright and colourful teepee provides a perfect space for your kids to dream and create, we like that the design of the room remains largely neutral and Scandinavian, which allows it to be age-appropriate even as the kids’ tastes mature.

Location: Costa Ris (HDB)
6. Black and White Bathrooms
This black and white bathroom is proof that the timeless and versatile colour palette can be adapted to suit all design styles and can be easily achieved in your apartment. After all, who needs accessories when you have got these stunning monochrome honeycomb patterns as your tiles?
