ID&A 2014 Bedroom Award Shortlist – Design Intervention i.d.


Design Intervention i.d.‘s project ‘The Singapore Private Residence bedroom’ has been successfully Shortlisted for the Bedroom Award of the 2014 International Design & Architecture Awards.

The client brief was for a bright, vibrant space with a sense of optimism and fun. The triple aspect master bedroom looks out onto a magnificent verdant vista. We made the most of the abundance of natural light by adhering to a crisp, fresh palette with shots of vibrancy. The colour palette infuses the room with a sense of joy and the Charlie Chaplin wall art adds a light hearted touch. The shots of blue cools the palette balancing the heat of the pinks and orange. We selected a pearlised wall covering, though barely noticeable it reflects the light in a way that a paint finish never could and gives a softer, warmer finish than a cold hard painted wall. The addition of a sheep skin area rug adds texture and movement to the scheme.

The proportions of the room verge on the long and narrow. To balance the width with the length of the room, we designed a channel stitched headboard. The coffee table is reminiscent of a drum set and adds a unique signature to the room. The curtains are hung high above the windows on acrylic rods for a light fresh feel. The verticality draws the eye up balancing the relatively short windows with the volume of the room.

“We designed the armchair and stool to follow classic art deco lines. The form is strong and inviting, invoking laid back living. The turquoise zebra shaped rug adds a sense of fun. The colour combination is fresh and inviting invoking a happy chic feeling. The homeowner says “I always wake up with a smile”.”
