It’s not every day you find a vending machine in a home, much less a fantastically whimsical pink one. Yet, one newlywed couple was game enough to have bold fun features like a pink vending machine and even a striking shipping container feature wall in their very first home, which they renovated at the cost of about $50 to 60k.
Home for this couple is a four-room BTO flat in Anchorvale Lane that spans about 1,000 sq ft. Renovations kicked off last August in the thick of the pandemic and took four months to complete. Their interior designer, Akemi of D’ Initial Concept, tells 8Days.sg that one of the biggest challenges of the project was “the unforeseen lack of materials and manpower during the pandemic”. Thankfully, the homeowners were understanding about the circumstances. “It turned out to be a unique home that reflects both of their characters!” she says.
Yes, the couple had their own distinct design preferences. While the guy preferred an industrial theme, his wife had a penchant for luxe touches like marble and gold. Despite this, they had a clear design brief for their ID: Industrial theme with pops of colours, and most importantly, no wood.
