House Tour: $60,000 renovation for a Clementi five-room HDB BTO home with a monochromatic palette

This five-room HDB BTO apartment in Clementi has a black-and-white palette.

Designed by the team at Studio Super Safari, this subtle, monochromatic colour choice allows for the homeowners — a couple in their early 30s — to purchase accent pieces of furniture to complement the space, such as a sofa from Scanteak and dining set from Commune.

As the couple enjoys big spatial quality, a full-height mirror was used to clad the doors of the shoe cabinet, while creating the illusion of a larger area. This strategy also allows the homeowners to practice yoga and exercise in front of a mirror too.
