Rejuvenated Singapore Home Inspired by Piet Mondrian and Urban Street Aesthetics
‘Innovative’ is a word that is loosely thrown around when describing modern homes. While we often do come across homes with nuggets of creativity, a truly exceptional and ingenious residence with a flavor and style of its own is hard to find. Home Rejuvenated is one such rare gem that was crafted with care, ingenuity and whimsical flair by KNQ Associates, as they attempted to blend practicality with the homeowner’s love for art, urban aesthetics and life on the street. It is a dashing and dazzling cocktail that surprises you at every turn as it unveils a spectrum of vivacious colors and textures and pays tribute to great artists; all at the same time!
As one enters, the image of a metallic blue cladding draped around the wall gives you a glimpse of what hides within, even as perforated metal sheets help shape a practical and inimitable shoe stand. The living room seems far more polished, but elements like exposed brick, cement and concrete surfaces, colorful décor, and beautifully lit artwork on the walls give it a more playful and eclectic vibe. A fun collection of toys on display, framed artwork from UK street artist Eelus, and a street lamppost in the corner of the ‘casual café’-style dining space ensure that this living area is like nothing else you have ever seen before.
The bedrooms inside the home also have an aura of their own, with blocks of color used to mimic the De Stijl art movement and the works of legendary Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. Artistic additions from Peter Blake, Michael Johannson, French street artist Dran, and UK street artist duo Miss Bugs add color and character as they set the tone in various other rooms of the house, including the fascinating home office and the master suite. And it is the globally popular image of ‘Faces’ created by Piero Fornasetti that caps off this remarkably brilliant bachelorette home in Singapore that captivates, enthralls and amazes!
