This HDB features an uncanny combination of Modern Classic and Industrial concepts. The dichotomous theme brings out a classy elegance within this home’s ambiance that is not only easy on the eyes, but also functionally cognizant.
The property consists of a 670 square feet HDB resale unit with typical in-built necessities and two bedrooms. The clients – Sebas and Cherlyn – wanted their new home to emulate a sophisticated modern classical look with a touch of edginess and the Mr. Ken, the project manager delivered exactly that by merging the elegance of classic elements with the edginess of the industrial style.
Overview of the design
The HDB units are small by design, but that doesn’t mean they cannot hold a big personality. By creating just right amount of balance between homely and stylish. Some of the accessories and in-built units have been done in a nicely distressed finish that emphasize the softness of the classical features around the home even more.
From the selection of lights to the smooth finish of the paint and even the decorative baubles that make up a small percentage of the aesthetic – each and everything has been carefully set up to be the best form of trendy and comfortable at the same time.
Theme and Style
Usually, it can be a bit challenging to design two juxtaposed themes within a single home unit – especially when those two themes clash in aesthetics. However, Mr. Ken is a veteran project manager, and his particular skillset and extensive experience helped him blend the perfect mixture of modern classic and industrial in this HDB interior design.
The vintage home accessories combined with an upscale black and white color scheme make for a very attractive foreground. The modern classic elements are interspersed within the industrial style highlights, and together, the entire system is the perfect cocktail of unique and edgy with a hint of softness in the mix.

The simple relief of the living area
The living area of this HDB unit has been done in the recurring black and white color scheme with a touch of industrial rustic in the mix. While the monochromatic aspects enforce the classical parts of the theme, the wooden floor brings in an industrial edge. The area rug is the veritable centerpiece that balances out the contrast between the two running themes in the design. Moreover, the simple layout and arrangement of the living room completely respects the size and dimension of the given space.
The dining nook
The dining nook is an extension of the living area, but manages to retain its own identity. The careful selection of the furniture as well as the light fixture give the space an individual quality that identifies this small nook as an area of its own. The gold light with its warm temperature is the perfect way to stimulate the appetite and set up a nice ambiance as a result.
The open kitchen layout
The dining nook intersects with the kitchen area, which is open at one side. Mr. Ken has drastically altered the typical looks of the existing kitchen space to fit in with the rest of the theme for this HDB interior design. An L-Box has been installed to hide all the visible plumbing and to help fix in the requisite ceiling lights.
The black Ikea knobs perfectly complement the shabby chic finish of the cabinets and subway tile back splash, while the beautiful monochrome floor tiles from Hafary Tile Gallery brings in a modern classic look to the otherwise mostly industrial setting. The cherry on top is the suspended industrial style lamps that hang over the parallel countertop layout
The unique bedroom set-up
The bedroom is simple, but the wardrobe laminates and the lighting are what makes it unique. The classical style Jenning laminate makes the wardrobe feel very retro, and the suspended bedside table lamps provide an extra dose of industrial to balance out the classic elements.
The understated elegance of bathrooms
Master toilet has been enlarged to give it a more luxurious aesthetic. The dry and wet areas have been separated with the help of a full-height fixed glass panel. The overall effect is the perfect combination of modern classic and vintage industrial.
