A colourful accessory, luxurious fabrics or a unique sculpture can all make your home a point of conversation. And with Singapore’s multicultural society, one can easily take inspirations from around the world.

Accessories like throw pillows or poufs allow you to play with colours that can create fun and excitement, and reflect your personality in a room. These knitted poufs are also a great alternative for flexible and movable seating. Not only are they sturdy & comfortable, they don’t take up too much space or budget and are a great option for family room or kids’ room.
Bring Nature into Your Home
While a potted plant in a corner or a trailing plant works well, a unique accent piece that takes inspiration from nature makes for an exquisite touch. For instance this bronze and wood piece,“36 Birds in a Table” includes 33 birds as the stand and 3 birds perched on the table top. You’ve got a conversation piece and fascinating bit of nature rolled into one!
Refreshed Furniture Fabrics
Over time (and particularly with kids using your sofa as a diving board!), even the sturdiest of sofas can get worn out. There’s nothing easier than a change in fabric to revitalise your old sofa to showcase a new look for your living room. This new collection of wallpapers and textiles for interiors are imported from London and combine detailed patterns and vivid colours, which can be used for furniture, walls and cushions to give a completely new look.
A beautifully plated meal, a well set table and sparkling glasses can whet your appetite as much as the food itself. For instance, these quirky mushroom-like dishes could hold salt, pepper or butter while adding that extra something to your dinner table. The organic form of the clay work blends with its function as a carrier of food allowing the diners to truly experience nature.
A Flavour of Asia
When you are in Singapore, it’s hard not to be influenced by the East Asian deco style. Traditional Chinese decor is usually opulent with reds, gold, jade and purple tones that can make your home seem luxurious and grand. For instance, a Chinese medicine cabinet dressed up with a lantern, teapot and knick knacks can be a focal point of your room and get a conversation started.
For such a tiny place Singapore is bursting with interesting design spaces and home decor spots. Happy hunting, mamas!
