The appeal of a monochrome home is that it is classic and timeless, yet with the right approach it can look ultra-chic and boutique hotel like. We sussed out 8 monochrome homes in Singapore and reveal how you too can make just the theme work for your home.
1. Just pure white can seem a bit stark, which is why this homeowner broke up the monotony with black lines, high gloss and a stunning patterned wall in the bathroom. Once again, statement lighting adds depth to the theme, especially when in unique shapes and a touch of colour.

Location: Amber Gardens (condo)
Cost of renovation: $90,000
2. Love the cool industrial feel this monochrome house has – black lines for a touch of masculinity offset with greyish furniture. The homeowner added on the monochrome drama with high-gloss finishing and sleek lines throughout.
Interior Designer: Fuse Concept
Location: River Valley (condo)
Cost of renovation: $24,000
3. Take cue from this homeowner who contrasted the all-white theme with black lines and some wood and grey tones. The white-brick feature wall adds some texture to soften the otherwise stark monochrome effect.

Location: Riverparc Residence (condo)
Cost of renovation: $50,000
4. While not exactly using black, this homeowner went with the dark grey and white theme that works just the same for a monochrome home. The kitchen is definitely the showpiece here where in its dark masculine theme you get a unique uptown feel of a modern kitchen.

Location: SkyTerrace @ Dawson (HDB)
Cost of renovation: $90,000
5. Here’s a different take on monochrome – using beige and wood as the colour scheme. Textures on the floor and walls break up the monotony while finishing in the same colour scheme ensures a flow throughout that leaves behind the impression of space.

Location: Telok Blangah (HDB)
Cost of renovation: $33,000
6. Another wood on monochrome concept that we absolutely love – instead of the usual brick feature wall, this homeowner went with a wood feature wall that adds warmth and a cosy feel to the living room. Furniture is also in the same colour scheme to ensure continuity of the concept. Tip: When you use just two colours in your décor, you can run the risk of the space looking a little blah. Avoid this by playing with height, like how the homeowner added black beams on the ceiling to draw your attention upwards.
Interior Designer: Space Factor
Location: Punggol Walk (HDB)
Cost of renovation: $40,000
7. A monochrome theme that definitely works? Wood on white! Get inspired by this monochrome home where the homeowner breaks up the monotony with some textures and patterns in the final details. Statement lighting also defines key areas in a monochrome home.
Interior Designer: DB Studio
Location: Tampines (HDB)
Cost of renovation: $40,800
8. There is something so lush when beige is used throughout a home – like this apartment in Elias Road. Add on gold elements to uplift the luxe level, as seen in the living room. Statement lighting – in this case, stunning chandeliers – add on the effect that’s pretty dramatic in a unique way.
