This HDB apartment is an excellent example of how subtle mix and match can be. What is interesting about the interior is that the designer opts for more modern flooring materials in the dining room, such as tiles, but still sticks to parquet in.
[DISLIKE/DINING ROOM] This seems more for show than to actually live in. This is really basic in my opinion and it looks bland and uncomfortable, if the chairs were coloured it would not look bland and more fun.
Neutral white dining room with multi-coloured chairs. I would probably go with more vibrant and fresh colours (i. no brown and ocre) and possibly vary the shape of the chairs too. The Eames chair is one of my favourites.
