Stylish Bachelor Pad on the East Coast

Mike Tan, a 60-year-old home decorator and owner of lifestyle concept store Eggthree, recently showcased his design skills by transforming his 1,080 sq ft two-bedroom condominium unit in Bayshore Park into a stylish bachelor pad. With a passion for fashion retail and home decor, Tan decided to take on the project himself rather than hiring an interior designer.

The renovation involved combining two original bathrooms into one larger space accessible from both the living room and master bedroom. One of the bedrooms was converted into a storeroom to provide more storage space and widen the corridor, reflecting Tan’s practical approach to design.

Inspired by his travels, Tan incorporated modern rustic elements with resort vibes, creating a cohesive and comfortable living space. He opted for a monochromatic palette of whites, greys, and blacks to allow his collection of decor and souvenirs to stand out.

Art pieces from around the world adorn the walls of Tan’s home, creating a personalized and inviting atmosphere. His open-concept kitchen features a versatile peninsula island that serves as a dining counter, bar, baking area, and spatial divider.

Despite the challenges he faced during the renovation process, Tan found designing his own home to be a therapeutic and inspiring experience. The project took about two months and cost approximately ,000, including furniture and furnishings.

Tan’s advice for interior design is to focus on logical space planning, adopt a ‘less is more’ approach to the color palette and furnishings, and accentuate the space with artifacts and greenery that reflect one’s personal style. His unique and eclectic design style has created a timeless and chic space where friends can gather and relax in comfort.
