House Tour: $60,000 Scandinavian-style three-room HDB flat designed with fengshui in mind

+

Trying to combine Scandinavian-style interiors with fengshui may not sound like it could work, but this modern and cosy HDB flat in Tiong Bahru is proof that it does. 

Working with interior designer Ken Lee of Space Matters and a fengshui master, the homeowner wanted her home to be a comfortable and airy space to relax in, which also encourages harmony and balance through the use of colours. 

The homeowner likes to jazz up her Boconcept fabric sofa with colourful, printed cushions. The rattan chair is a memento from her childhood home. 

The geomancer recommended using red in the kitchen, so she chose a red Smeg fridge, which she matched with an unusual magenta quartz kitchen countertop by Silestone. 

 

For her orange wall, she displayed items such as travel photos and her growing book collection. 

 

The renovation cost includes the merging of two bedrooms, as well as the built-in shelves and partition wall demarcating the study and bedroom. 

 

All wallpaper used in the home, including this wintry-looking one in the bedroom, is from Goodrich.
