House Tours: Two bachelorette pads show you how to do your home as an independent single lady

Chris Huang of Bowerman Interior Planner was recruited by this homeowner, a bachelorette in her 30s, to give her 43-year old flat in the Tanjong Rhu area a stylish update. Renovation took three months to complete, and cost $60,000.

A small study nook is created in the niche between her kitchen tabletop and the main entryway. It is a conducive space for doing work, as during the day natural light can stream through the window, while at night she has an overhead lamp for illumination.
