According to interior design expert and founder of interior design firm in Singapore, Design Intervention, Nikki Hunt, “the art of interior design is making the sum of the parts much greater than the whole, each item should make the items around it look better – but we must not forget comfort, either”. This is how she describes her decor inspiration.
Nikki Hunt is a mother of two who owns a firm of creating interiors, furniture and accessories.
Like this sofa that she designed for a vibrant open plan room with entertaining, dining and living space all in one. “In such an expansive space, I felt that the room needed a big piece to anchor the various elements in the room.” So instead of having several smaller pieces, you can always chose an oversized piece.
Nikki sensed a resurgence of 70s décor. It started, like she says, by the injection of bolts of colour to enliven the neutral décor schemes. Then chevron prints appeared, next, came ombre and tie-dye; velvets replaced linen as the most popular choice for upholstery and now the return of brass and gold hardware and accessories.
In this uber-sexy bedroom project, a classic French armoire sits against a tropical leaf print mural, framed by antique Indian columns. This is a dramatic room full of vitality.
At Design Intervention, “Modern Eclectic” describes homes that ooze originality but in a fresh and contemporary way. Nikki explaines that “the rule to achieving an eclectic look is that there are no rules to follow and that is precisely why it is so difficult to achieve.” An she shows that by creating hese interiors delight in an unstructured mix of elements, from an array of design styles and eras – where everything works together to set the mood.
Nikki is also a fan of animal print. So, she designed this rug that just adds enough pattern to keep the room interesting without over complicating the relaxed vibe of the room.
Hope you liked the projects, an got some decor inspiration for yourselves.
