Our friends over at KNQ Associates sent us this fun and colourful before and after update of a one-bedroom apartment in Singapore, a small space transformation of a blank canvas home into a 60's pop art inspired interior with maximum visual impact and layout flexibility (looks like there's a strong international trend of using orange these days)...

Designer Stanley Tham explains: In the living and dining areas, 'clashing' hues of orange, yellow, red and brown turn the once ho-hum interiors into an ultra hip and cozy chill-out pad. A bright orange sofa picks up the tone on the wall at the dining area, which is adorned with Warhol style paintings Due to the limited space available in the bedroom, a corner of this space is sectioned off as a work area. The customized TV system allows the TV to be adjusted and viewed from all corners.

Inside the kitchen, the original floor and wall tiles were retained - a very fitting choice given that the tiles do look 'dated'. And well, doesn't those juicy lime green doors just makes cooking that much more enjoyable?

In the bedroom, things are kept simple and functional in view of the lack of space. A partition wall was erected to carve out a walk-in closet, with the remainder of the space taken up by the bed. The deep blue color used here injects a sense of tranquility. Not sure if Hello Kitty's happy with the choice of color though, ha!
