Monday’s Masterpiece – Singapore Style

I’ve been meaning to post about Tamarind Hill restaurant, for a while now.  Housed in an old Black and White over in Labrador Park, the (bananas ethnic) decor, (jungle) setting  and (sublime) Thai food combine to make it a must visit resto here in Singers.

So let’s take a closer look at the decor, shall we?  Sleek and chic are two words that spring to mind, this is Asian ethnic design with a sleek contemporary twist.  I was pretty blown away the first time we I saw this soaring central bar area, just divine:

Ditto re: the entrance space full of framed antique kilims and ikats, Chinese cabinets and more Buddhas than you can shake a stick at – gorgeous:

It’s worth heading out West for the decor alone, but they also do a mean Massaman!

And here’s a little semi-copycat scheme I’ve pulled together that’s more suited to residential spaces – there’s nothing like a black Panton chair to get my pulse going…
