House tour: A charming, pastel-coloured home incorporating elements of the past

Interior Designer Raymond Seow has never been one to shy away from colours or a mismatched look, and his own cosy home is a representation of that.

The contemporary retro style home is awash in pastel hues and geometric patterns, and every nook has an interesting detail – either about the design process or the owner himself. For instance, a large toy collection greets visitors at the foyer (there’s more in the bedroom, too), and beside it, an “unfinished” tile arrangement – which he says took him half a day to configure.

With a total renovation cost of RM150,000, Raymond managed to transform his small apartment into a home. Raymond likes the apartment’s grey skirting and marble flooring, as it provides a neutral base to the colourful features he wanted to use.
