This 4-room BTO flat went from drab to fab and now makes the perfect cosy home for a modern young couple.

Space: 4-room BTO flat

Size: 1,001 sq ft

Location: Bendemeer

Home To: A young couple
Designer: Irene Lee from Darwin Interior

Reno Period: Eight weeks

Budget: $50K

Renovating isn’t just about beautifying a space, but also about providing the homeowners with what they need—in this case, an escape from the hustle and bustle of their fast-paced lives, in the shape of an everyday staycation. To achieve that resort-inspired look they were after, the flat was given a Scandi-style makeover with a boho chic touch, enhanced with plenty of natural light. While the renovation posed some challenges, the design was pulled off expertly by Irene Lee, who put her many years of experience at Darwin Interior to good use.
