Modern and Industrial-Styled Home by Artspaze
If you’re looking to transform your home to become more modern, but prefer a more rugged look or darker tones; this home designed by Artspaze may be a perfect inspiration! Located at 152a Bedok, Artspaze has truly revamped a simple HDB space to one that is breathtakingly stylish and functional.
The entranceway of this industrial-style space boasts a wooden main door that provides a warm contrast to the cool tones of its concrete floors and exposed brick walls. A black-accented spotlight draws attention to the transparent stool placed conveniently next to a pair of shoes, emphasizing the open layout concept. This entranceway leads seamlessly to the kitchen and dining area, making it the perfect introduction to this welcoming and functional space.
Kitchen / Dining Area
The industrial-style kitchen and dining area exude a sleek and contemporary atmosphere within its open-concept space. The gallery kitchen layout showcases black cabinets and a matching kitchen hood, boldly contrasting against the grey backsplash tiles. Meanwhile, earthy accents and slim wooden shelving add warmth and character to the overall design. The prominent black pipe suspending gracefully from the ceiling, on the other hand, enhances the space's industrial look.
A massive double-door black fridge, complete with a wine compartment, stands prominently against the other wall. A grand concrete dining table takes centre stage, surrounded by luxurious leather herringbone chairs and complemented by concrete benches for additional seating. Above the table, a captivating glass pendant light with golden accents illuminates the space, adding a touch of elegance. On another side of the room, a captivating green cabinet accent wall catches the eye. Muted green cabinetry gracefully flanks a white wall arch-shaped frame, while wooden shelving stands against a backdrop of glossy stone wall backsplash, creating a harmonious blend of natural and industrial elements throughout the space.
This modern and industrial-style bedroom boasts a refined aesthetic with darker tones, an abundance of natural light, and a spacious layout that mirrors the luxury of a hotel. A sleek wardrobe with black glass sliding doors adds a chic touch to the room while allowing for ample storage. Meanwhile, the frosted door leading to the master toilet adds privacy and a sense of exclusivity.
Artspaze has even gone above and beyond to upgrade the bedframe to be made of leather – creating a luxurious and hotel-esque look. At the same time, the grey bedsheets and beige overthrows create a calming ambience that is perfect for rest and relaxation. But what truly stands out in this master bedroom is the customised wooden vanity table that seamlessly extends to the wardrobe. It is situated right in front of the windows, allowing plenty of natural light to stream in. The vanity table is also paired with a leather stool for a cohesive look, dried flowers for a natural touch, and a hanging pendant light for additional vibrancy.
Ensuring no space is wasted, Artspaze has transformed another corner of the master bedroom. Boasting a massive mirror atop a circular woven rug, it is surrounded by rustic details like a wooden blanket ladder, earthy-toned cushions, and dried reeds. Meanwhile, the woven pendant lighting fixture provides warm, ambient lighting that radiates throughout the entire space, creating a cosy atmosphere.
This industrial-style master bathroom showcases a bold and stylish design with black accents throughout. The wooden shelf that serves as a sink table adds warmth and natural texture, contrasting against the wide black sink. The toilet bowl is also sleek black, complementing the overall colour scheme of the room. The floor and walls are finished with the same concrete texture, creating a cohesive and contemporary look. Not to mention, it also creates an illusion of a seemingly spacious bathroom! Meanwhile, the black frosted glass panel helps to maintain that open feel while adding privacy between the shower and dry areas. To further distinguish the two spaces, the black-tile backsplash is used for added visual contrast. Meanwhile, a massive window allows natural light to flood the room, creating a bright and airy feel that balances the darker tones of the bathroom's design.
The other bathroom designed by Artspaze is also equally stunning. Featuring the same wooden floating sink, this bathroom takes on a slightly lighter colour scheme with a graphite sink (instead of a sleek black one). Not to mention, the lack of doors also helps to make the entire bathroom appear more bright and airy. Not to worry, there is a subtle ledge to ensure water does not get to the sink areas, while at the same time, does not disrupt the aesthetic of this beautiful bathroom. To add pops of colour to the space, dried flowers in vases are also added beneath the sink.
White and Wooden-Accented Home by Creative Studio

Meanwhile, the wooden frame sofa, adorned with comfortable beige cushion seats, invites relaxation and comfort. Light wood floor tiles contribute to the warm and inviting atmosphere, while the wooden coffee table and matching TV console shelving offer both style and functionality. Adding another touch of black to tie the space together is the black ceiling fan. Beyond just aesthetics, Creative Studio also takes into account one’s needs and preferences and blends them with style.

Not only does this offer great functionality, but it also matches the space’s wooden them and can even add a playful element to the space. Finally, wooden window blinds and recessed lighting on the white walls complete the harmonious blend of white and wooden accents, creating an inviting and soothing living room retreat.
Even with limited space, Creative Studio has creatively found ways to make the best out of it to create a simple entertainment room for relaxation.

That’s right, the fluted wooden panels actually double as a hidden storage area! Apart from that, the fluted wooden panels can also be opened up to reveal the hidden bathroom.
