Just because your home is small, doesn't mean that you've to decorate sparsely, or be stingy in the style department. This interior designer, who is also the owner of this 735sqf-sized three-room HDB flat, shows how to make a grab-bag of styles work in his compact home. All this for about $70,000, which includes art, upcycled objects and vintage finds — some of the elements that make up this wonderfully quirky home!


The home has a colourful mix of styles, from industrial and contemporary to vintage and retro, as encapsulated here in the living room.

A ledge was installed against the brick-finished walls, to optimise display areas for the homeowner's art and decor accessories.

In the cosy dining area, an old school sewing machine is given a new lease of life by now being the base of the wooden block table.

The pairing of black and white finishes in the kitchen is a simple idea, but has an intriguing effect.

The clash of textures and styles in this corner exemplifies the homeowner's daring, experimental approach to interior design.

In the bedroom, what appears to be recycled pallets becomes the platform bed base. Creative and eco-friendly!

Look closely — these lampshades are actually old, rusty metal buckets!

While the homeowner got most of his furniture from Bangkok, this wardrobe that has its interior painted a fresh green was sourced from a vintage store in Alexandra Road.
