A couple with their two young children live in this five-room HDB flat at the Pinnacle @ Duxton.

The wife wanted to dress the home in happy, flamboyant colours to bring life to the space.

With the help of Raymond Zhang, design consultant at Vegas Interior Design, the couple achieved the kind of style and concept they wanted – a modern Baroque look – with a budget of $45,000.

Classic Baroque details such as the furniture's Chippendale legs blend with modern hints of silver and black, keeping the style from looking dated while giving it an edge.

"We first saw our black chandelier at a lighting shop but it cost $6,000! Thankfully, Raymond managed to source if from the supplier – and at half the price, too!" says the delighted wife.

The wife's collection of designer Barbie dolls not only hides books and magazines, it's great conversation starter, too.

Flamingo pink and a rich plum shades are used in the living and dining areas to differentiate the two spaces and add a resounding punch of colours.

The master bedroom features a more traditional Baroque style, with an ornate gold and ivory vanity set and headboard dappled with powder blue flowers.
