A contemporary black, white and grey colour scheme gives this home a timeless appeal.
This contemporary home, a four-room Housing Board flat, was designed with a monochromatic colour scheme, as requested by the young couple who lives there. Tommy Ong, principal designer from Elementz Design, created spacious yet cosy interiors by customising space-maximising storage units, and pairing these with fabric sofas and sheer curtains. The renovation cost came up to $25,000. To keep the open-concept living and dining area clutter- free, Tommy created a suspended TV console, and combined two must-haves – shoe storage and a full-length mirror – using mirrored doors for the shoe cabinet! These customised designs were finished with black laminates, which have a textured floral motif.
The master bedroom is a cosy haven, with a feature wall and curtains in shades of grey. To conceal the electrical wiring of the TV set, Tommy added a partition wall, and finished it with a floral wallcovering from The Wall Story, adding texture and dimension to the room. The design of the other bedroom was specially requested by the lady of the house, who wanted a Hello Kitty-themed walk-in wardrobe. The wardrobe doors were laminated in two shades of pink; and Tommy sourced for Hello Kitty decals as a gift to the homeowners. A chandelier adds a dramatic finishing touch.
