Located at Choa Chu Kang Avenue 5, this home exudes a modern and sleek vibe with its darker-toned colour palette and minimalist aesthetic. But that's not all!

So, get ready to be inspired by the seamless blend of form, function, and aesthetics in this home designed by Seds Interior. 


Living Room 

Stepping into this home, you’re immediately greeted by this stunning living room that exudes luxury and sophistication. At its heart lies a magnificent L-shaped leather sofa, adorned with homely plush cushions that beckon you to sink in and unwind. Complementing the rich tones of this sofa are the deep-chocolate wooden floor tiles and a striking navy-blue TV feature wall. The TV feature wall boasts modern and slim wooden cabinets, offering a harmonious blend of practicality and style. Additionally, track sockets mounted on the walls provide the perfect solution for keeping cables tidy and organized, while seamlessly integrating with the contemporary aesthetic. 


Enhancing the ambience are the black ceiling spotlights that cast a soft glow – all strategically positioned to ensure optimal lighting throughout the day or night. Meanwhile, the stylish wooden window blinds that frame the massive windows allow natural light to stream in too. Completing the living room space is the chic dark brown fan that adds both functionality and a touch of sophistication, effortlessly circulating the air while becoming a statement piece in its own right. 



Gaming Area 

Meanwhile, a gaming paradise is tucked right behind the luxurious leather sofa. This hidden gem reveals a fully equipped black desk, boasting the latest technology for an exceptional at-home PC experience. From sleek and stylish high-quality headphones to reliable WiFi routers and even indulgent comfort seating, every detail has been carefully considered to ensure you won't want to leave this haven of virtual adventures. 

In fact, did you know that Seds Interior brilliantly hacked down a wall to create this open-concept gaming area? This ingenious design choice not only enhances the overall spaciousness of the living room but also ensures excellent ventilation and ample natural light, even with the darker-toned palette. Privacy is not compromised either, as the gaming area is strategically positioned to face the windows, providing a sense of seclusion when desired. And enhancing the airiness of the space is the stylish ceiling fan that provides a welcome respite from Singapore’s sweltering heat. Best of all? This gaming area can also be easily converted into home office space because of the open-concept design. 


Personal Home Gym

Slightly further up, we have the personal home gym – the pièce de resistance of this stunning home. Despite its modest size, it boasts an impressive array of exercise tools (such as dumbbells and cardio benches) that even the most committed fitness enthusiasts would approve of. Not to mention, the room is also thoughtfully equipped with rubber flooring, ensuring stability and minimizing the risk of injuries during physical activity. Best of all? The addition of wall-mounted mirrors not only allows you to check your form and technique but also creates an illusion of spaciousness, making the gym area feel larger than life itself. 

Remaining consistent with the style standards set throughout the rest of the house, navy blue walls provide visual cohesion indoors, adding a touch of sophistication to the gym environment. To further enhance the space, sliding glass doors allow natural light to flood inside, creating an energizing atmosphere that inspires and motivates. Completing this stylish vision are the black accents, seamlessly integrated as furnishing elements, adding a sleek and contemporary touch to the overall aesthetic. 

Dining Area

Moving onto the dining area, the ambience takes a delightful shift towards a brighter colour palette, infusing the space with a fresh and inviting atmosphere. This transition not only adds vibrancy but also cleverly distinguishes the dining area from the rest of the room.


Here, a navy-blue-toned island table with a pristine white countertop takes centre stage, creating a striking contrast against the rich leather high seatings. The golden accented light fixture above the table radiates a warm glow, casting a captivating ambience over your dining experience. Meanwhile, the corner wooden ceiling fan adds a touch of rustic charm and helps to keep the space comfortable. Not to mention, the use of the same wooden ceiling fan adds cohesiveness to the entire home. 


To ensure that the space remains functional as well as aesthetically pleasing, bright white cabinets line one side of the dark navy-blue wall, providing ample storage space for your essentials. On the other hand, the plain white walls surrounding the dining area enhance the bright and spacious ambience. 


Gallery Kitchen 

Boasting navy-blue cabinets that contrast beautifully against the white-marbled floor tiles, this gallery-layout kitchen is designed to impress. The touchless cabinets and recessed lighting infuse a touch of modernity into the space, elevating its overall aesthetic appeal. Seamlessly integrated into the sleek cabinetry, the oven and induction stove blend seamlessly, further enhancing the streamlined look.


But this kitchen goes beyond mere aesthetics; it has been thoughtfully designed to optimize functionality. Seds Interior understands the importance of ample storage space in a kitchen, and the cabinets provide just that. From pantry essentials to cookware, everything can be neatly organized and easily accessible.

In fact, there’s even a hidden wine storage area tucked under the cabinet countertop. Not only does this take into account the homeowner’s preferences, but it also maximises all the kitchen. 


Adding a touch of innovation, a striking-black power track has been installed against the grey-marbled tile backsplash. This clever addition enhances the functionality of the space, allowing you to conveniently shift your plugs wherever you need them for your various kitchen appliances. Simply put, this power track ensures a clutter-free countertop and a seamless cooking experience. Furthermore, the angled entrance of the kitchen adds an element of visual interest. This deliberate choice not only adds visual interest but also creates a smooth flow as you move through the space.



The bedroom is often considered the most important room in the house, as it is where we spend a significant portion of our time resting and recharging. And when it comes to creating the perfect bedroom, Seds Interior has truly outdone themselves. With a focus on tranquility and minimalism, this bedroom serves as a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life.


At the heart of this serene retreat, a luxurious grey bed sits atop an elevated wooden platform that exudes a sense of elegance. The surrounding stylish recessed lighting provides ambient illumination, casting a soft glow over the room. To enhance the relaxing ambience, massive windows are draped with both black-out and sheer curtains, allowing you to control the natural light that floods into the room. Completing the oasis-like feel of this bedroom is a ceiling fan, strategically placed to ensure a comfortable rest no matter how hot Singapore weather got. 


Walk-In Closet

This sleek and modern L-shaped walk-in closet is designed to impress. The alluring glass doors open up to a space of organized luxury, filled with hanging racks and storage boxes so you can easily find what you are looking for without any hassle. The standing mirror does not just serve as the perfect OOTD checking spot, but it also helps to balance out and open up the space. Meanwhile, the black ceiling spotlights beautifully highlight the carefully crafted details within this area - from the light-toned wooden floor tiles to the vanity table. In fact, the lighter-toned wooden tiles are used to distinguish this space from the bedroom, and at the same time, help make the area appear more spacious. 


At the end of this walk-in closet, an exquisite navy blue vanity table and a gold-accented stool await. Finished with rounded corners and intricate golden detailing on its circular pull-out drawer, it provides a cosy escape from everyday life while adding personality to any space. Its complementary golden-framed mirror reflects light, while the windows are finished off by wooden blinds that give the room further depth. 


Master Bathroom

Next, let's take a look at this master bathroom designed by Seds for some contemporary minimalist inspiration for your home renovation journey. A circular black-framed mirror atop the marble sink countertop creates a chic focal point while highlighting its sleekness in combination with light grey marbled tiles that adorn every wall. This also helps to create a seamless and open look across the space.
