Current interior design trends in Singapore 2

Previously, we talked about current trends in Singapore, today we will look more into themes that are up-and-coming, gives off a different vibe from the more popular trends of the last post.

Minimalism is a trend slowly rising in today’s lifestyle. Decluttering, reducing redundant items and being efficient are some facets of minimalism. You can never go wrong with a minimalist-themed home that looks super clean, neat and rid of clutter. This is an epitome of simple living and making your home a timeless masterpiece. Feel free to play around with materials like wood, cement floors and metallic elements to give your new home a touch that is uniquely you.

Add a tiny piece of heritage into your new home with pattered Peranakan tiles. These tiles are fast gaining popularity amongst those who desire to style their house after simplicity but also want a touch of uniqueness in their home. Laying your entire house with patterned tiles may become too much of an eye sore, instead use it to accentuate a small area of your room where you’d like to have your eyes focus on.

Bohemian, or “Boho,” decorating is for those who want their homes full of life, culture, and interesting items for all the world to see. It flies in the face of modern sensibilities and embraces the carefree, the relaxed, and the unusual. And while Boho rooms tend to have certain similarities—they’re always eclectic and share some of the same features—no two are completely alike.

Boho is inspired by people who choose to lead an unconventional life: travellers, actors, writers. Its style incorporates those ideals, combining objects, colours, and patterns from many walks of life and many areas of the world. If you’re looking for a style that you can truly make your own, Boho might be for you.

Muji homes or Japanese-style homes are designed to be clean and soothing on the eyes, yet it has to be functional at the same time. Although this can often be confused with the minimalist style, a Japanese styled home incorporates more wooden elements into its design. In this design, white walls are often accompanied by wooden elements to open the space, along with clever storage ideas so that your home will look uncluttered and neat.

With more jobs allowing you to work from the sweet comfort of your own home, why not mark out a space in your new abode so you can do just that? Glass home offices are the new interior design trend that is fast gaining popularity. Its glass walls open up the space but also distinctively separates itself from your living room. With ample natural light flooding in and a clean, minimalist space that’s conducive, you would definitely stay here all day when you don’t have to be in the office.

Modern and Minimalistic theme can go hand in hand as seen in this project that we have done for a previous client. If you would like more recommendations, do drop us an enquiry in this form and our designers will contact you!

 

 

 

 

Design Trends in Singapore

Current Interior Design Trends in Singapore Part 1

When it comes to industrial, we all think of raw concrete styled floors and wall, track lights lining the ceiling, brick walls that are left incomplete deliberately for that grunge look. However, recently homeowners have been adding a touch of neon into their industrial styled homes. Add in a neon light feature across your living room’s wall for that extra cool look.

It is not difficult to see why every new homeowner is going crazy over a Scandinavian styled design for their home. Clean and streamlined designs are the main feature of the Scandinavian theme. Stick to simplistic styles that are soothing and relaxing for everyday living. It is also possible to add colours by using bright accessories to liven up your living space.

“Scandustrial” is a mash up of the Scandinavian and the Industrial theme, two of the most recent popular interior design trends. And yup, you are absolutely right, this is a home designed and furnished entirely with Taobao items, from the lights to the chairs, down to the Snorlex sitting very comfortably in the corner.

The world’s your oyster when you shop at China’s leading E-commerce site; it sells anything and everything. You’ll definitely need a keen pair of eyes to filter through the millions of items to put together a home with details that fit to a tee, but it’ll be so worth it.

It’s only a matter of time before most nifty newlyweds start turning to Taobao to get everyday items that won’t cost a bomb. Taobao is amazing because you are able to get everyday items for only a small fraction of the price you’d usually find in a retail shop.

Pronounced as “Hoo-ga” or “Hue-guh”, Hygge is set to become a very trendy interior design choice for many new homeowners. It’s essentially a way of life adopted by the Danish, known for being the happiest people on Earth.

Hygge focuses on cosiness, coming together or creating a sanctuary to escape the hustle and bustle of life. A home that is laid back and effortlessly warm and cosy.

While Singapore is definitely not the country for snuggling up with thick throws and blankets, you can choose to incorporate the Hygge design into your home by adding fur textures and candles to create an inviting atmosphere that will be hard to resist.

Coming home to a relaxing resort-styled home will definitely calm your senses from a hectic day with the neutral colour tones and make you feel more relaxed and also lift your mood.

Play around with the different shades of brown and amp up the atmosphere by placing scented candles in every room, making it smell like you’re living by the sea, giving you true resort vibes.

Don’t you just love a polished European styled home? Decorate with bronze frames and motifs to add a little more elegance into the room. Remember to avoid plain whitewashed and neutral hues by including loud, fun colours to make the room pop and stand out!
