A gorgeous pink sofa already turns heads in this 1,162-square-foot home on Everton Road. It became the main inspiration for the designers at Make Room when they were tasked to style up the space. The owner, a single female professional expat in her thirties, asked them to prettify her home while still complementing the existing pieces of designer furniture and noteworthy accents: the HK Living shelf, the Urban Road art piece, pink neon flamingo, and the rug from 25 hands.
To inject a fun, beachy, and botanical look and feel, the home was splashed with happy colours—the designers played around with pinks, yellows, and greens. "It is very important to note that we did combine these colours with sleek black pieces to ensure the space did not become too girly, although very feminine. The yellow office chair is to bring the study area to life. We chose the mustard yellow plaid because it complements the art piece beautifuly and the green wall is such that the flamingo neon light can stand out. Most importantly, we used those colours to create smaller cosier spaces in the one huge space that is the living and dining room," explains Barbara Fritschy, founder and creative director of Make Room.

What can Singaporean homeowners learn from this home? Barbara quips, "That it is important to also put aside some budget for the what most people consider 'smaller and less important' pieces in a home—items like paintings, wall deco, lighting, vases, decoration pieces, rugs, and cushions. Only when those items come into a place will it look cosy and welcoming and can you be happy at home!"
