This 5-room HDB flat in Sengkang is designed by Vera Lim from Vegas Interior Design. Then newlywed homeowners were very specific with their brief – everything has to be black and white.
The idea was for the austere colour scheme to provide a clean, uncomplicated backdrop for the husband’s collection of toys and Absolut vodka bottles.
Black and white living room
The couple wanted their TV console to be as simple as possible. The TV feature wall recedes into the white concrete wall, allowing the kooky Mad*l figurines above to steal the spotlight.
The red-and-black doughnut chair, with its geometric shape and sharp colour, is a visual point of interest amid the living area’s white and black furnishings.
Bomb shelter door sticker
The household shelter door (and ventilation hole above) had the right proportions for the likeness of an Absolut bottle. The husband designed the giant decal himself.
Bedroom wall stickers
Graphic black decals bought in Malaysia embellish the master bedroom. The entire master bedroom floor has been raised with a platform, with the bedhead fixed to the wall.
$50,000 Renovation cost
The entire renovation cost $50,000, excluding furnishings.
