Designer: Mandy

Property Type: HDB

Renovation Cost: $43,000

Style: Mid Century Modern

Being an art-loving couple who are in the creative industry, this 1184 sqft home was designed as a transformative development footprint for its young first-time homeowners.



In order to let light flow, walls between the entrance and kitchen were collapsed, leaving a half-height wall structure with curved beam features, inventing a perceivably wider entryway and unifying an open-plan space. Monochrome geometric floor tiles and curved elements are used to provide a graphic welcome by giving a nod to the past, while the transition of vinyl flooring to the living area adds a contemporary touch to an otherwise traditionally lack-lustre part of the house.


Being design savvy with an assortment of illustrations and art pieces that were collected over time and several even drawn by the homeowners themselves, an art gallery was formed as a focal point of the place by utilising the long sweep of the wall in the living hallway painted in Prussian blue for a theatrical highlight. Not only does it bring character and personality to the space by infusing colour and art, but it also makes the apartment feel fully inhabited while unveiling who they are and what they love.


The kitchen embodies clean lines, a dash of warmth walnut wood bottom cabinets that is easy on the eyes and sleek with no top cabinetry in the line of sight, along with watery blue backsplash delineate the Mid-Century Modern epoch. With the remaining half-height wall, a landing ledge was crafted to house keys and trinkets with a viable bar counter. Brass handles were added with the adroitness to spruce up the ensemble.


Both the en-suite and common bathroom can be seen with fun juxtaposing tiles that pack some punch of persona with complementary black frame shower screen, fittings and eye-catching hardware.
