Updated with new design themes, HDB’s My Nice Home Gallery has reopened with a fresh new look.

With this revamp, new design themes such as ‘Modern Chic’, ‘Country Charm’, and ‘Bold Geometry’ are introduced, showing how every flat can be unique based on personal preference and style 🙂

Keen to find out what the show flats look like now? Read on for a visual treat.


Contemporary chic is not only timeless, but easier to attain with furniture and decor in shades of grey, as shown in the 3-room show flat. Using a neutral colour palette with shades of white, black, and grey can help exude elegance.


The country-themed 4-room show flat paints a peaceful cottage life, with gentle tones on surfaces and cosy, homely textiles. The soft floral fabrics also work well with light-coloured decorative details.

The 5-room show flat features contrasting colours and strong lines, giving each room a different personality – only for the bold and sophisticated. Geometric patterned shelves create a strong statement to any space.

With an industrial chic look, one of the 2-room Flexi show flats will appeal to the hipster cafe hopper. If this is not your style, then check out the other show flat with strong Scandinavian overtones – clean, simple, and nature-inspired.

Even if you are not planning to redesign your home completely, you can pick up some interesting ideas from the show flats.

Transform plain walls of your room into an accent point with statement decals
