Step into Patricia Zhao Qiuping’s flat in Sengkang, and you’ll be immediately wowed by the details she had put in to recreate the look of a New York City loft. So it came as little surprise that her home was placed second in the ‘My Nice Home Photo Contest’ held in December last year.
A total of 15 homes, including the top three entries, were selected by a panel of judges based on the design theme, creativity and cohesiveness of the flat interiors.
Patricia, who shares a 4-room flat in Riverale Arc with her mother, also infused a bit of café culture into her home with the chalkboard wall. She also opted for cement flooring for an industrial feel, to complement the design theme. The play on contrasts is most evident in Patricia’s favourite feature – the living room wall with its contrasting textures.
