If Disneyland is the happiest place on earth for Disney fans, then for the homeowners of this Mickey-themed four-room flat, their cosy contemporary abode may come in a close second.

This 1,000 sq ft flat in Serangoon is home to a young couple who are — you probably guessed this by now — huge fans of the iconic Disney character.

Tasked with tackling this major overhaul with a deft Disney touch was interior designer Wein of local firm, Notion of W. “Pre-renovations, the condition of the flat was not good at all, and we had to change almost everything,” Wein tells
8Days.sg. “The most challenging part of the project was having to make the old rundown unit into a fresh new home for the couple.”

Besides fulfilling their wish for a House of Mouse themed home, it was also important that “the function and practicality of the space that would suit the two individuals’ unique personalities into one single space, and to find harmony within the space”, he continues.

The flat was 30-something years old when renovations started, and revamping the space took four months and $90,000. Taking up big chunks of the budget were major layout changes to the flat, carpentry, as well as rewiring and plumbing, which is common among renovations for older flats.
