Your HDB Could Look Like These Breathtaking Homes in Taiwan
Taiwanese interior designers seem to have mastered the art of interpreting popular decor styles in fresh new ways that’s tailored to the homeowner’s unique preferences. Explore these elegant homes (that have a similar layout to our layouts) and learn how you can reinterpret the look in your home!
1. For pared-down yet commanding interiors, start with white walls, cover other large surfaces such as cabinet doors with a variety of warm greys, and top it all off with black and brown accents. Keep the rest of the decor style slick and sharp, and you’ll get a snazzy urban pad like this.
2. If storage is a priority for you, don’t be afraid to use that to anchor the home’s interiors. The best way to get creative with cabinets is to have them custom-built. Mix things up with marble veneers, wooden laminates, or glossy surfaces. Breaking up large storage areas with open shelves also make it look less bulky overall.
3. Cosy up a home effortlessly by incorporating soft styling elements such as indoor plants, rugs, and the occasional throw blanket over the sofa or bed. Another family-friendly yet stylish decor way to dress up common areas is to use Scandinavian-style murals and designer toys as decorative elements.
4. Rooms can look a lot larger and airier with the help of a gentle, earthy colour palette that’s generously bathed in natural light. And if you deck the spaces out in low-profile furniture just like in this gorgeous home, you’d create an illusion of a taller ceiling as well!
5. Neutrals are always a safe place to start when building up your interiors. But stay there, and you risk getting stuck with bland spaces. To avoid that, see how this home adds textures, layers, and bright pops of colour accents to enhance its neutral foundation.
6. Take the classic style for a contemporary spin, and you’d be surprised at how modern it can be! The designers of this home achieved an elegant, understated look by replacing the rich palette often associated with the style with pure white, and simplifying all its ornate details.
7. Open concept common areas are ideal for smaller homes as the lack of solid walls creates a welcoming, loft-like environment. Incorporating adjustable elements into this space, such as with a swivel television mount, also enables each zone to be used in more ways than one. Your child will thank you for the big(ger) playroom.
