Gone are the days when you have to have a cookie-cutter HDB apartment interior. Now, you can choose an interior decor trend that suits your personality, like the owners of this renovated resale apartment in Choa Chu Kang.
The four-room apartment makes the most of its double-height ceiling space in the lounge room to create a funky environment with an Industrial Rustic interior style. The industrial notes come from the use of metal, concrete and accessories like open wiring and pipes. Rustic style refers to the use of timber and other natural material.
From the moment you enter the apartment, the custom-designed front door and grill introduce the overall interior design style of the Industrial Rustic trend.
The mix of leather furniture, cow-skin rug and solid timber furniture pieces, as well as the fun faux deer head nod to the rustic interior style that’s popular in America.
The hanging Edison bulb lighting feature, wrought iron banister and suspended timber beams bring a more industrial feel to the overall design of the space.
The clever use of backlit timber as a feature wall creates a defined space for the entertainment area and continues the Industrial Rustic trend.
In the dining space, pops of colour, from metal chairs, add a fun vibe and blend in well with the light timber table. The inset lights also add more warmth to the space.
In the kitchen, a mix of concrete - for the Industrial - and printed tiles for the rustic, creates a clear harmony. Check out the cool wine rack made of old horseshoes.
Another cool touch in the kitchen is the use of cans as stools for the kitchen island.
A funky barn door made of decorative timber adds depth to the white walls in this Industrial Rustic style home.
To continue the Industrial Rustic theme, the main bedroom is a mix of white and concrete with yellow used as a highlight; the open en suite and walk-in wardrobe adds lightness to the space. Timber features like the old traditional window screen on the wall have a light rustic touch.
In the main bathroom the mix of timber-look and patterned tiles offset the more industrial style of the open pipework and dark metal shower fitting.
Even the smallest detail, like this dark metal tapware matches the Industrial Rustic theme of this apartment.
