Home Type: 4-room HDB
Floor Area: 909 sqft
As the middle-aged couple who reside in this 4-room HDB flat wanted a place that was easy to clean and easy to maintain, designer Mya from ted ID focused on creating a simple and clutter-free space. The wife also has a preference for mid-century modern designs and specifically requested for the use of walnut wood.
The homeowners made the decision to keep the original terrazzo flooring and so, Mya was also tasked to ensure that the new elements of the house would complement the old. The result is a unique juxtaposition of old and new.
The design of the entire house is kept consistent with the use of greys and walnut wood against a white background. Certain walls are painted a dark grey for visual impact while bright colours on soft furnishings like pillows and rugs add vibrancy and texture to the space.
Designed to be practical for everyday use, the kitchen comes with plenty of countertop space, built-in cabinets and a large dining table. Cabinets are clad in glossy light grey, which not only makes it easy to maintain, but also creates the illusion of a bigger space.
