Our Scandi Vintage colourful home!

Recommended Posts

Hello! It's been really interesting reading everyone's journey in renovating their homes. Thank you for sharing all your stories and tips! 

Now it's our turn, as we have to move to a bigger place. With four young kids, our current home is just too small! We've had our taste in renovating our current HDB, and learnt many lessons along the way. For the new place, we hope to use those lessons, plus be more daring with our use of pattern and colour. Right now, our home is quite a mish-mash of scandinavian and country, with some vintage thrown in, and we're hoping to bring that combination over to the new home too. It's a bit crazy, but I think it's a happy mix, and suits a family with young children. ;) 

Today we met with the ID that we finally shortlisted, and discussed the quotation. Will share more about him if we find his services good! Anyway, for the kitchen, we're hoping to have a cheery yellow backsplash like in our current place, and pops of colour:

For the dining, we're just planning to shift over the long table and these "vintage" posters. But I hope to change the pendant lights. Perhaps to the cage-like ones, for a change? (Anyone has recommendations to where to get these at an affordable price?)

Ok, that's all for now. We'll be tile-hunting and scouting for sanitaryware next!

We went to many tile shops recently to check out the tiles. The range these days is staggering! Right now, I've set my heart on cement tiles for the kitchen floor, along with yellow subway tiles for the kitchen backsplash. For the two toilets, I'm looking at cement tiles for the shower wall, and subway tiles (probably white) for the walls, and homogenous for the floor. The hubby likes the cement tiles too, just that we are a little worried about their upkeep. However, I've read that they are alright if sealed properly. Anyone has tried using cement tiles before? 

Here are some that we shortlisted:

1. From An Huat at Zion Road (which has the largest range of cement tiles I believe):

2. From Unlimited Enterprises (at Whampoa, which seems cheaper, but has smaller range):


We've asked the ID to help us do mock-ups so that we can see how the tiles might fit into our design. Can't wait to see those!
