A Minimalistic HDB Jumbo Flat by Desmond Ong

Surprise to find this space a HDB flat in Singapore?

The spacious apartment was featured in the October issue of Home & Decor magazine. It is actually a jumbo unit made up of a 3-room and 4-room flat into a single apartment of 1765 sqft. I’m seriously envious of the amount of space that the house owners are getting here :D

The owners wanted a clearly minimalistic theme for their home and they have worked with designer Desmond Ong to realize their vision. Almost all the internal walls were taken down to create an open layout that feels so light and airy. Given the white walls as blank canvas, I would be tempted to add a layer or two of colors and accessories. But the home owners and designer have decidedly keeping it sparsely styled in a restrained colour palette of white, grey and wood tone to stay true to the clean, minimalistic theme. Every piece of furniture here is functional and beautiful.

This may not be a home that suits everyone’s liking or life style (there isn’t a lot of hidden storage to stash all those little things you may accumulate, hence discipline is needed in decluttering to maintain the clean minimalistic look :)), but I really like the what the designers and home owners have achieved here!
