While the collaborative approach may not always appeal, having a different style to your architect or designer does not always result in conflict. Instead, it can pave the way for unforgettable designs. “I have strong ideas about what works for me and my design aesthetic but I’m not a designer,” writes one Houzz user. “I appreciate and am paying for their expertise and don’t want to create unnecessary constraints on their creativity. Essentially, I’m employing a designer to find solutions that I could never come up with.”
1. Built-in banquettesThis brightly coloured award-winning apartment is part of a vanguard of new Singaporean homes that are being furnished with vivid design elements over more traditional minimalist aesthetics. But the special feature here is the fact that the whole lounge suite has been built into a curvaceous banquette, eliminating the need for living room furniture. Designed and styled by Design Intervention, the rest of the apartment is just as stunning, which is why last year (2014) it was voted ‘Best Home’ by Singapore Tatler Homes and was a finalist in Singapore’s Design and Architecture Awards.
