From millionaires like Jamie Chua to lifestyle bloggers and influencers like Mongchin Yeoh and Willabelle Ong, us Singaporeans are often very invested in the lives of the local famous and rich. Other than their luxury purchases and exciting travels around the globe, home tours are usually the next best thing that piques our interests.
So, if you’re curious about the homes we have in store for you, come and get to know the ones owned by these 5 famous Singapore influencers, as seen on Instagram or TikTok. Even if these influencers don’t ring a bell, the aesthetics of their home might convince you to do a double take.
1. Mongchin Yeoh – An Industrial-Japandi themed smart home

Stepping into what influencer Mongchin Yeoh affectionately calls the “mnmhome”, one will be greeted by tawny-brown fluted panels, as well as soft curves and wooden furniture. As she wanted to achieve a seamless look for her living room, these fluted panels also run from floor to ceiling, and across the entire ceiling there.
From wooden textures to the cream and brown tones, her home exudes an airy and clean feel. Coupled with the curved surfaces, Mongchin chose to go with large format tiles (900cmx900cm), to give her home a softer and more spacious look.

The colour scheme and Japandi style extends throughout the house, including wooden textures and neutral-tones. Small details like Mongchin’s kitchen ceiling’s concrete-like texture also serve to contribute to the industrial concept that she was also going for.
Another interesting style choice would be the fluted glass door that Mongchin opted for her bathrooms and kitchen service yard – compared to a typical opaque door, this made her home all the more classy and stylish.

However, there’s more than meets the eye with this seemingly simple and tranquil home – it’s a smart home equipped with a Home Control System. With the help of Home-A-Genius, all of Mongchin’s Google and Samsung smart devices are linked via a single smart ecosystem. Her smart switches even monitor the electricity usage at home.
On top of controlling her air conditioners, fans, and even curtains with a smart panel and mobile application, she can even remotely control her Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde air purifier TP09 and Google Home Mini device. The lighting in the house can also be set and adjusted to create different moods.
Some other cool and smart appliances in the ecosystem include Mongchin’s trusty Samsung Jet Bot+ with Clean Station, Eubiq Power E-Tracks that make plugging in an appliance more convenient, and the Samsung Family Hub, 549L fridge that makes managing her groceries easier.

If you think that’s the last of the Samsung Smart devices in the mnmhome – Mongchin opted for the Samsung QuickDrive Front Load Washer and Heatpump Dryer in her service yard, as well as a Samsung Smart Air Purifier for her master bedroom. All these can be remotely controlled via the Home-A-Genius system as well.

Lastly, she tops off her Japandi home with a truly-Japanese experience – installing a Toto bidet in the master bedroom ensuite. Ever think about the fancy, smart toilet bowls you used in Japan? This one’s not only able to self-clean, dry, but also warm up your seat for you.
2. Nicole Wong – Industrial-chic and minimalist walkup
Content creator, fashion influencer, and the Creative Director of the creative agency, nplusc. These are all the labels that Nicole Wong has under her belt. In fact, she’s also the owner of a sleek, dark, minimalist walk-up in the East.
While the walk-up apartment had been small with just one toilet and a separate bathroom, the living area was spacious, and the apartment itself was situated in a spot that ushered in natural sunlight.
Sticking with the minimalistic theme of her home, Nicole cleverly hides her clutter and belongings with compact and built-in storage.

Working with what she had, Nicole transformed the airy apartment into a cool, industrial home. Filled with mostly black and dark grey accents, the old tiles were removed to make way for concrete flooring – this texture was extended to other surfaces and furniture like the kitchen counter.

Adding to this the aesthetic of this stylish home are transparent “ghost” chairs that give the living area more dimension. Fun fact: they are known for their design, which pays homage to Louis XV’s Ghost Chair – you can get modern replicas like Nicole’s for just $84.
3. Willabelle Ong – Artistic home with a luxurious walk-in wardrobe
As a travel blogger and online influencer, it’s not surprising that Willabelle Ong’s home is both elegant and tasteful. On top of a white, cream theme to make the house look pristine, the house is also dressed in textures like furs, plush carpets, and dripping chandeliers – making the home appear stylish and luxurious.
Each area in her home is adorned with a painting or two, many of which are her very own masterpieces. They’re often bold and vibrant, drawing a fun contrast between the rest of the house and the art. Her living area is also decorated with small vases and volumes from influential fashion houses like Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton.
Willabelle regularly films outfit TikToks in her walk-in wardrobe.
Of course, we can’t forget about her expansive walk-in wardrobe. The fashionista owns a beautiful wardrobe that stores and displays her collection of designer bags, shoes, accessories, and clothing – many of which come from high-end brands.
4. Fumi Lee – Spacious family bungalow with a mix of styles
If you don’t know who she is, Fumi Lee is a Japanese personal stylist and fashion consultant. She and her family are currently based in Singapore, where she runs her business Style&Me for both local and international clients. While she typically styles her clients and offers fashion advice, it seems that she also had a hand in dressing her own home.
The lush landscaping of the property makes it seem as if the bungalow is surrounded by nature. In fact, she often spends her time relaxing with her two dogs on her outdoor patio, which overlooks her lap pool and is elevated to a height that’s settled among the canopy of the estate’s trees.

Much of her personal touch lies in the communal spaces of her Caldecott Hill bungalow, such as her dining area. It has a corner designed to have a pop-art theme, which is brought out by vibrant reds and pinks in the decor and painting placed there. Next to this spot is a family wall filled with mementos and pictures of Fumi and her family’s past travels.
Another highlight of her home is the beautiful lap pool that’s nestled among various trees and shrubberies; the natural foliage acts as a buffer against street noise and the city ambience, making the pool seem like an undisturbed, hidden oasis.

Finally, a fashion stylist’s treasure trove – a walk-in wardrobe. On top of ceiling-high shelves filled with designer shoes, Fumi has taken to displaying her favourite Chanel dresses on mannequins. As for her jewellery and accessories, she has them displayed in an elegant, velvet-lined counter, with a glass surface to view the pieces from.
5. Evon Chng – Cosy and elegant penthouse apartment

On top of being a well-known influencer, Evon Chng has several other achievements under her belt. These are just some of them: Editor-in-chief at Esquire, the founder and brains behind think tank Zazoozoo, and the founder of digital creative agency Beastcorp.
And it seems that her keen eye for fashion and style have bled through her work and into her home’s design – the 33-year-old owns an elegant and cosy penthouse home that’s a blend between mid-century modern and contemporary.
Throughout the house, Evon swapped regular paint for limewash, which has a more matte and raw texture to it. Coupled with pastel tones like grey, beige, and cream; the apartment embodies a very soft and laid back mood. This is also further enhanced by the use of puffy furniture and rugs.
Evon even created a small, cosy nook for her 5 cats – a cat tower that touches the ceiling, tucked in between two curved walls.

Married to the co-founder of lighting company Sol Luminaire, Evon Chng easily has her lights game down. She opted for soft backlights for most of the house, subtly giving her furniture greater dimension and a more mellow feel.
As a creative with a foot in the fashion industry, Evon is another influencer on this list with a walk-in wardrobe. Although some might say it’s less impressive than the likes of Jamie Chua and Willabelle Ong, it holds its own with an enviable Chanel handbag collection among other designer items.
A luxe concept is also injected into this home with marble elements, such as the kitchen counter and backsplash, as well as the crystal-marble slab in the place of a traditional coffee table.
BONUS: Jamie Chua – Rental home of a Millionaire
Known for her massive Merryn Road bungalow, Jamie Chua is currently staying in a temporary home while a new one is being built – although it’s a stand-in, it’s not just any ordinary home. It’s located at Sentosa Cove, a gated community known for some of the most lavish houses in Singapore.
Some of the highlights of this home includes a gorgeous lap pool that overlooks a grassy bank and waterfront shared with other bungalows; it leads out into the sea and if you look out far enough, you’ll get a glimpse at the coastal waters of Sentosa Island.
In a YouTube vlog, she also mentioned that this Sentosa Cove home is one of her son’s properties and her new home is just a few streets away – conveniently located near both her children’s current residences. Since the move in April, she has added her personal touches to this bungalow.
Some parts of Jamie’s temporary home might pique your interest, including a mini farm that overlooks a scenic lake. The millionaire rears Silkies and grows her own fruits and vegetables, sharing her gardening journey on Instagram. In particular, these Silkies are considered rare in Singapore, as they need extra care as compared to your average farm chicken.
Jamie’s old walk-in wardrobe was measured to be nearly 700sqft and houses the world’s largest Birkin collection.
For those who are curious about where her Birkin collection’s gone now that she’s moved, Jamie’s settling for an open closet bedroom where she stores a fraction of her clothes and accessories. The rest are currently displayed and stored across three other rooms in the house.

Jamie Chua is known for being a fashionista that travels the world – indulging in fashion pieces from revered fashion houses like Chanel and Dior. While her current wardrobes’ setup might pale in comparison to her old one, we’re sure that the one in her new home will be extensive and luxurious.
