A colonial home in Singapore (FC1)
The Bulls blood, ochre and black of these handmade Boulenger tiles, made in the latter part of the 19th century, harmonise beautifully in the modern settings of this Singaporean colonial house renovation. The quality of ceramics, fixtures and fittings is of the highest choice available and the standard of craftsmanship...perfection...as the photographs testify. This is as fine an example as can be found of how antiquity and modernity can work so well together. How with creative planning and sensitivity to palette and form references from a bygone epoque can share their impact with contemporary design in a collective way.
