4 Inspirational Ideas for New Flats in Canberra
No, this isn’t your favourite idyllic city in Down Under. Enter Canberra, a new local estate which lies in between Yishun and Sembawang. While we are waiting eagerly for full development of the area (the train station named after it is reportedly slated to open in 2019), we show you brilliantly chic homes around the area to get you inspired.
1. Sometimes, less is more. Here, clean silhouettes and all-white palette offer a clutter-free approach to the minimalist-loving homeowners. If you love cafes and their Instagrammable interiors, take a cue from this Scandinavian chic and cosy dining setting to replicate a similar ambiance at home. Note the floor-to-ceiling laminated brick walls, industrial-style lighting and wood accents. Opt for partial dividers (in this case, full-length wood planks) that exude style and edge.

2. Smart living is all about knowing what works in the long run. This industrial-inspired home employs plenty of stucco-effect walls to not only create a dramatic appearance, but to take advantage of their properties: durable and easy to maintain. This applies to the dark-coloured sofa in leather, too. In the bedroom, go for a raised platform bed which doubles up as practical storage solutions for the home.

3. Modern and timeless, this home hits the right notes in the right places. Airy and spacious, there is abundance of natural light thanks to full-length sliding doors that led you outdoors. Overall, we love how the colonial-inspired accessories (think white-washed doors, vintage standing lamps and glass homewares) add a luxury touch. Tip: Place sunbed chairs in the balcony and create an intimate, alfresco-style spot.

4. Most homes focus on a theme. But having more is never a wrong approach, too. This home scores in the latter by having a different focus in every corner of the home. For instance, it was all luxe and classy in the living space (check out the large marble-laminated feature wall), but all industrial and modern in the kitchen. In the common area, add a personal touch by displaying a collective of memorabilia items around the main door perimeter.
