Renaissance 旧欢心爱 Episode 7 : Minimalist

Summary: 3 bedroom flat in Bukit Merah gone for its make over. From a cramp & cluttered to stream line minimalist. How they do it? Other than throwing away all the stuff toys and unwanted barang-barang?

Answer : Uniformity.
When we talk about minimalism, Interior designers are obsessed with tiles, paint, laminates & fabric samples because to they want to avoid “too much going on” look. Having a large mixtures of random colors or texture makes the space look untidy.

This episode truly shows what we are known for. We seamlessly incorporate our doors into the interior, matching our doors with the furniture. The rare perfection in matchy-matchy even gave our host goosebumps.

Also in this episode, Bryan had created this wall installation by reusing waste wood planks. These planks are actually raw materials leftovers from doors. We prepared them in 3 different thickness, cut into squares and ready to be used as wall tiles! Being Green & looking good is made so easy.

Since door is right beside the TV console, we found the closest match to it and the result is really decent. In the photo, the door appear darker because TV console is mounted 3 inches in front of the wall while door is 2 inches behind the wall.
