House Tour: A bright and white three-room HDB flat

Traces of minimalist, industrial, scandinavian, retro and contemporary styles can be found in this cosy home, designed by JQ Ong. Thanks to the mixture of styles, whether in the built-in fittings or loose furniture, the home has a relaxed, easy-going atmosphere.


The home's clean, almost monochromatic palette makes the flat look larger and brighter. The use of a rug with an attractive design and a subtle feature wall composed of herringbone-laid subway tiles in the dining area keep the home from looking sparse.

As one of the only wooden pieces in the apartment, the sideboard lends a touch of warmth to the living space.

The wall that separated the utility yard from the kitchen was replaced by a translucent acrylic door and window panels to bring in more sunlight. 

Parquet flooring brings a cosier feel to the bedroom. Furniture pieces with slim legs were chosen to enhance the room's clean, minimalist feel.

Exposed pipes painted a bold dark colour and tiles with a geometric pattern accent the bathroom's white walls.
