Pegboard and Dowels in a 4-room HDB flat | HelloEmbryo

Hello guys!

This 4-room HDB flat in Pungol belongs to a creative, art-loving couple of graphic designer and origami artist.

The pegboard allows the homeowner to reconfigure and switch the display of their collections from time to time. The possibility of their own gallery is endless and this gives character to the space.


An art studio is definitely on the wish list of a creative couple.

JQ Ong/ The Association | A HDB Flat with Black and White Colonial Charm

After seeing JQ Ong‘s own apartment featured in Home & Decor magazine a few years ago, I have been liking his projects ever since.

This HDB flat at Cantonment is one of the projects shared in the Facebook page of his design company – The Association.

It has a black and white colour palette that reminds me of the colonial charm of the black and white bungalow in Singapore. Very classy indeed!
