Take a look at the award-winning interiors of this home for some decor inspiration. Conceptualised by Singapore-based firm Design Intervention, this two storey bungalow received the Best Interior Design award, in the Private Residence category at the International Property Awards held in London last December.

The 8,000sqft bungalow adds dashes of red and pink, with a mix
of fun prints on its cushions and curtains

Led by partners Nikki Hunt and Andrea Savage, the design practice was also honoured as the Best Interior Design Firm in the Asia-Pacific Region at the award ceremony; an accolade that they have received for the third consecutive year.


The chinoiserie themed interior was the perfect canvas for the homeowner's collection of Asian art and antiques

“We chose a chinoiserie theme, as it allowed us to integrate the client’s extensive art and antiques collection into a modern, glamorous aesthetic,” says Hunt, on the concept for this award-winning project.

Octangular details and Chinese-inspired architectural mouldings add subtle oriental touches to the home, while complementing the homeowner's collection of heirloom vases, Chinese paintings and porcelain.
