Clev­erly dis­played fig­urines and hu­mor­ous de­cals give this col­lec­tor’s passion room to shine.

SET­TING THE SCENE

Car­men of in­te­rior de­sign rm Wolf Woof chose a white and grey pal­ette to pro­vide a clean back­drop for home­owner Aaron’s colour­ful toys, as well as the cus­tomised de­cals. The en­tire TV fea­ture wall is made out of white, black and red Lego blocks, which Car­men’s team painstak­ingly put to­gether to achieve the look of a hand­held game con­sole.

QUIRKY DE­TAILS

As the cou­ple did not want to re­congure the lay­out, Car­men and her team fo­cused on cus­tomis­ing hu­mor­ous de­cal de­signs – in­spired by Aaron’s love for Ja­panese pop cul­ture and StarWars. Step into the home, and StarWars’ CP30 will greet you with “How are you?” in Ja­panese, while Yoda bids you to en­joy your meal with a cheeky pun: “May the fork be with you.”

The love for toys, streetwear and pop cul­ture is strong in Aaron Hai. To­gether with his wife, Wah Miin, the IT pro­fes­sion­als share their four­room apart­ment with over a hun­dred toys and pairs of shoes. ( He has a crisp pair of Alexan­der Wang x Adi­das Orig­i­nal BBall Sneak­ers and a vin­tage pair of Nike Jor­dan 4 Retro that other sneaker col­lec­tors are bound to want.) Don’t ex­pect rows and rows of or­di­nary glass cab­i­nets, though. The cou­ple en­gaged Car­men Tang of Wolf Woof to de­sign unique yet func­tional ways of in­cor­po­rat­ing Aaron’s many in­ter­ests – these in­clude a Lego fea­ture wall and a strik­ing A Bathing Ape cam­ou­flage wardrobe de­cal. See what went into the $30,000 ren­o­va­tion (ex­clud­ing fur­nish­ings).
