Near the top of celebrity hair stylist, Addy Lee’s wish list for his Sentosa Cove apartment is a cosy and bright respite brimming with positive energy. And space for his prized collection of limited edition sneakers. That was a tall order. The founder and chairman of the Monsoon Group Holdings has a bursting-at-the-seams collection of clothes, shoes and designer bags.
Interior design is all about translating the needs of a homeowner into a functional part of the home and at times those expectations do not match up when placed in the hands of an inexperienced design team. After collecting the keys to their two-storied inter-terrace, the homeowners justifiably confided in the design team of CAD Associates to manage their design needs for a resort feel within their new landed home.
It takes more than a sharp eye for detail to mix design themes and styles without warranting a clash in styles. Homes that are rich in layers and styles are much more vibrant and dynamic and help to distort the mundane. At the behest of their client, CAD Associates relied on experience and a penchant for experimentation to merge the best of Industrial designs with an Oriental style for a 5-room HDB at Bedok Reservoir Road.
