island/shelf Sharp contrast defines the kitchen. Color, form, and materials change abruptly for an incredibly striking effect. Wood transitions to glossy white, concrete turns to marble, all wrapped up in a clean modernist package.
The upper cabinets are divided into two portions: garage-style drawers conceal less frequently used items above, while open shelves display drinkware for easy accessibility. Square cubbies below store wine bottles.
This HDB apartment is an excellent example of how subtle mix and match can be. What is interesting about the interior is that the designer opts for more modern flooring materials in the dining room, such as tiles, but still sticks to parquet in.
