These classic homes will make you want to turn back time.

Forget industrial and minimalistic styles, go back in time and get inspired by the spacious, traditional homes our parents grew up in.

Think large windows, wood panels, and open concept spaces and you’ll have kampung living down pat. Incorporate these old flavours into your modern home to embrace tradition, culture,  and that carefree lifestyle.

Classic Malay Home

We’re smitten by this Airbnb’s charming exterior featuring blue and pale yellow wood panels that continue into the home. Inside the home we see the colourful marriage of old and new as brick and wood panels meet bright orange doors and classic dressers meet porcelain bathroom fixtures.

The stained glass panels, high ceilings and large windows perfectly capture traditional Malay home featured that are making their way back. We love how the home is elevated on this gorgeous estate to make way for a RnR area by the pool!

This house’s architecture has been perfectly conserved, retaining the gorgeous and intricate wooden panelling on the exterior and the sunburst windows that date back to the 20th century. The interior is spacious and welcoming with its warm tones and wooden accents. We can already imagine retreating to a home like this after a long day.

The intricate detailing on the exterior and interior of the space makes this house anything but ordinary. This unique space that carries Chinese-Malay heritage has been exquisitely crafted as the internal carvings of the home have been untouched since the early 90’s, remaining as detailed and vibrant as ever! Wouldn’t these carvings look amazing at the entrance of your home?
