A fun-loving couple deserves an equally fun and lively home. The designers from Weiken.com went all out to turn this 4-room HDB flat into a cheerful abode that reflects the personalities of its owners.
At the same time, the design team created a home that could easily accommodate the couple’s eclectic collection of furniture and home accessories.
Project Type: 4-room HDB
Floor Area: 760 sqft
The young couple that calls this 4-room HDB flat home are lovers of everything fun and unusual. It’s no surprise then, that they wanted their home to have a sense of light-hearted quirkiness.
The living area is a good example, where a polished cement screed floor, white brick walls and exposed black conduits create a simple canvas for the owners to then fill up with their eclectic furniture picks.
This includes a mishmash of box crates instead of a television console, side tables on caster wheels in place of a regular coffee table, and a large variety of stuffed toys, kitschy ornaments, and wall prints.
With only the couple staying here, a formal dining space wasn’t a priority.
Instead, a petite dining area sits comfortably between the living room and kitchen entrance. In accordance with the owner’s penchant for all things eclectic, designer Ginny Huang from Weiken.com clad the wall in craft brick stones as a textured backdrop to this charming space.
Don’t be fooled by this kitchen’s compact floor size; it’s been designed as an efficient workspace with ample storage and a conducive layout. But what makes this kitchen stand out is its bold use of sprightly orange cabinet fronts.
The designers realised that too much of the cheery hue can become overwhelming, so they balanced the look with glossy white laminates.
Instead of merging the spare bedroom with the master room to accommodate a walk-in wardrobe, the designers proposed turning the empty room into a large closet space.
A customised open-concept wardrobe runs across the length of the room and proudly displays the owners’ outfits in all their fashionable glory.
Unlike the rest of the home, the designers adopted a more toned down approach for the bedroom. A clean off-white palette gives the room its calming demeanour, especially when paired with the light blonde wood floors. The design team also constructed a partial divider just across from the bed to house the television set.
