Laura. Home Ideas. October 18th , 2017.

Linda Guthrie was very excited when her husband Randolph, manager of the Shangri‐La Hotel chain was posted to Singapore 3 years ago. She confesses that she finds Houstons, Texas USA, where the family stayed for about two years, hotter and more humid in summer than the tropics. It was her children, two boys and a girl (Scott, Matthew, and Lesley), who took a little bit longer to adjust.

All beach enthusiasts, the children love the Singapore weather which is splendid for swimming and sunbathing all year‐round. The idea of having to live in a high–rise flat in Holland Road was however not welcomed. Having lived in a sprawling estate in Houston, the children missed their favorite pastimes like the exhilarating experience of biking 35 miles through mountains and streams. “But my kids long to come back to Singapore each time we make a trip to the States. Their home is here now but ironically they do also look forward to the annual trip to America,“ smiles Linda.

Her first attention, when told that she would be settling here for a long time. She was to get a pretty big house or an apartment to house three grown children and two adults who loved lots of space. She heard about her present home through a friend. The open layout and the idea of having a living area separated from the more private parts of the flat appealed both to her and her husband.

Of course, the dining area also had to be big enough to house the huge and heavy dining table with ladder—back rush chairs from her previous home in the States. This fifteen‐year‐old dining set, (with matching cupboard) and the L–shaped sofa in the family room were the main pieces of furniture the family brought with them. Linda began working in the other areas of the home basing her plans on a two—color theme ― red and green. ”My home in the States was in blue also yellow and I had wanted a change. But red and green was furthest from my mind!”

″The color inspiration came from the fabric I got for my old winged easy chair at the living room. The next thing I knew, I had purchased the red Chinese cupboard for my hi‐fi set and then the screen. In no time, I was having the sofa set, curtains and bedspread done in either green or red. It is coincidental that our contemporary oil painting by Charles Schorie of Houston, hanging in the dining area, is in splashes of red or shades of it and green.″

Coming to Singapore gave Linda the opportunity to buy the oriental antiques and arts and crafts which are a rare treat in the United States. “Not only is Asian furniture expensive, but it‘s usually only available in big cities such as Manhattan area and San Francisco. The range is limited and the prices beyond most people’s pockets,“ commented Linda. It is therefore not surprising that Linda has amassed a large collection of antiques ranging from small figurines to large pieces of furniture.

She and her family have been to Srilanka, Thailand, Burma, Japan, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hawaii, Europe, Mexico, and Australia. But both she and Randolph are most fascinated by the Chinese or Japanese arts. Their passion for the 100–year old Japanese porcelain Imari takes them to Japan from time to time.

Linda and Randolph hope to make a permanent home here in Singapore and say there is a little possibility of Randolph being transferred to other countries. Linda hopes this is so as she would very much like to raise her family here while enjoying the sun the whole year through.
