A mod­ern fam­ily home dec­o­rated with time­less fur­ni­ture pieces.

Home & Decor (Singapore) - - PROJECT SHOWCASE -

This taste­ful home in Hougang be­longs to a fam­ily of four that favours a mod­ern look. Tasked with the re­ju­ve­na­tion of this 1,453sqf five-room HDB flat, the team at Re­nais­sance Plan­ners & De­sign­ers fo­cused on how the home can ex­ude an open yet warm am­bi­ence, and still be a prac­ti­cal liv­ing space.

The ren­o­va­tion cost $100,000, and in­cludes the re­con­fig­u­ra­tion of the flat’s lay­out. To cre­ate a bright and airy at­mos­phere, the store room be­tween the din­ing and liv­ing rooms – this part of the home gets lots of nat­u­ral sun­light – was hacked away to make space for a bar counter.

For a time­less look, an earthy pal­ette was used for the apart­ment, from the spray­painted white join­ery and Cana­dian wal­nut-clad open shelves to the fab­ric fea­ture wall in the mas­ter bed­room. The lat­ter opens up to more stor­age space.

Eye-catch­ing ac­ces­sories, such as a hexag­o­nal patch­work rug from In­dia, give the home char­ac­ter – but one of the fam­ily’s proud­est pos­ses­sions is a pair of hand­crafted Qing­dy­nasty chairs. Boast­ing 100 years of his­tory, these an­tiques were im­ported from Hangzhou af­ter months of sourc­ing.
