It’s only been seven months since Vernon A and his family moved into their Yio Chu Kang condo, which he bought for S$1.45 million, and already the Class 95 DJ is hatching plans to redesign one of the rooms.
When 8days.sg dropped by the four-bedroom resale unit, which Vernon, 49, shares with his wife, influencer and marketing manager Jayne Tham, 32, and three sons, Ethan, 19, Liam, three, and Niall, two, he gave us a tour of the space and revealed the inspiration behind the decor.
Decked with sleek wood furnishings and a muted colour palette, the 1,368 sq ft home is designed with a luxury resort vibe in mind.
“I wanted [to create a getaway] from the hustle and bustle,” explains Vernon, who used to live five minutes from Orchard Road.
“When you come home, you want to feel relaxed, and that’s why we chose a muted colour scheme that is nice, warm and not too jarring.”
It took two-and-a-half months and around $100,000 – including furniture – to revamp the space.
