This Scandinavian style resale condo is all about wood

Location: 529 Bedok Reservoir Road

Type of home: 2-room resale condo

Livspace team: Interior Designer Wanting Liu and Project Manager Zach Lee

Livspace service: Flooring, painting and decorating

Budget: $$$$$

This new compact resale condo is all in all a perfect place to relax. The place is knitted by warm wood tones throughout. It oozes that old world charm while being functional. The homeowner had plenty of loose furniture and wanted continuity in her condo. So, our designer Wanting Liu helped her with decor, flooring and painting. Without further adieu, let’s take a tour of this cosy and charming home. Grab a notepad to take down some small condo design ideas. 


Step into this classy living room with neutral colours

Say yes to artwork as decor

First up, the living room. With a backdrop of neutral tones, this living room is simple and classy. The beige sofa and wooden TV unit are in perfect tandem with the vinyl wooden flooring. The small coffee table blends in seamlessly with the rest of the room’s ambience. 

Also, notice the lighting in this room. It is brightened up by the false ceiling cove lights and the light fixture on the ceiling fan.   

Additionally, the space is brought to life by glass paintings of plants on the wall. To have paintings in the living room is one of those small condo design ideas we highly recommend

Happy and satisfied with her condo’s makeover, the homeowner appreciated the Livspace team’s work and dedication:

“Wanting is very responsive. She responded to my messages immediately. When I had doubts and queries, she addressed them patiently. Altogether, it was an easy and fun experience.”

Well-lit dining area with a fresh pop of colour exuding a cafe-style vibe

The multipurpose sideboard unit screams convenience
Reeded glass shutters break the monotony of wood

This dining area reminds us of a cosy cafe. With light wooden table and chairs against the moss green wall, this setup is refreshing. Decorative pendant lights add to the brightness of this area. As a final touch, the wall is accentuated with a quirky poster.

Think out of whites and greys for a neutral colour palette. Muted shades of green, blue, pink and tan really boost the look of the space.

Another thing that you must pay attention to in this area is the sideboard unit. The homeowner loves this, especially for it is a functional storage space and can be used for display too. The appliances go on the tabletop for accessibility. What we love about this unit are the reeded glass shutters that break the monotony of wood.  

A bright bedroom packed with essential furniture

Sliding door wardrobes are space-efficient
A dresser unit that’s compact but functional

Once again, wooden furniture is the highlight here. We love how continuity is maintained throughout this small condo. The only noticeable difference is that the living and dining areas have light wood vinyl flooring while the bedrooms have the darker version.

Though small in area, this bedroom features all the essentials — a wooden bed with a simple headboard, nightstand and a wardrobe. Additionally, a compact dresser (with several drawers) and clothes rack are also added. Sliding doors for the wardrobe is a good choice as it doesn’t come in the way of the dresser unit, saving space.

Another highlight of this room is the large window. The flood of natural light makes this compact room bright and breezy.

Like the other bedroom, the study also has dark wood vinyl flooring. Compact and airy, this room has a long light wooden desk to hold all the electronics. A small wall shelf is also mounted above the desk for display.

The centre of attraction in this home office is the reading nook. It looks oh-so-relaxing with an upholstered sofa and stylish floor lamp. The slender legs of the sofa and desk ensure that the space doesn’t appear too busy and cluttered. 

If you want your compact room to look spacious, opt for furniture with slender legs or glass tops. It will not cover the floor entirely, thus creating an illusion of space. 

The room also features a beautiful wooden cabinet that’s used for storage. The top of the cabinet is used for display, which is a smart small condo design idea if you have a lot of decor and ornaments to display.

“I gave this condo a Scandinavian look with decor that matches the theme. Even though the changes made were small, the entire look of the place is changed and the client loves it.”
