Calling all trendsetters! Want to be ahead of everyone else on the interior design trend in Singapore? We’ve talked to three great interior designers to give you a insider tips on the rising decor trends in Singapore.

1. Travel-Inspired

If there’s one thing that we all love, it is traveling, right? It has now influenced the way we’d like our houses to be designed, as seen from the projects by paper + white. One common thing amongst the houses are the light and fresh interior. Getting inspired by travel evokes the emotion of being back on vacation each time you enter your home.

Lighter colours like light pink and grey are used in this living room, creating a feeling of freshness and coziness. If you’re the kind who love to play it safe and prefer to keep it simple, opt for lighter colours. The best thing about using lighter colours is it’s easier to match, not making the space looking like a mess, as compared to using bolder colours like red and yellow, which can be quite tricky.

We absolutely love how the home owner has matched different pastel colours for her kitchen. To get the soft look, pair two pastel colours together. You’ll see they make a perfect match! They just complement each other well and it looks like you’ve put in a lot of effort putting everything together, when you have not.

Love the sun, sand and sea? Let this nautical theme home be your inspiration! Stick to white and different shades of blue to recreate the look.

Blue, known for its calming effect, is paired with a red colour. Total opposites but looks good together. Another tip is to keep the walls simple, with no wallpaper or any other decorative elements that can make the space look disordered.

Bold colours for your walls and selected few furniture? Of course you can but minimise the number of decorative elements, like this living room.

3. Eclectic Style

Taking inspiration from the eclectic style homes designed by eightytwo, eclectic style is the mixing and matching of different elements – themes, styles, designs etc. No longer are people sticking to that “one-theme-only” rule for their home. What’s great about it is it gives you the freedom to combine different elements to transform your home into the one that you’ve been dreaming of.

There’s no need to stick to combining two different themes. However, we can’t deny that it can be tricky. It can turn out to look like a mess if you’re not extra careful. Be careful not to cross that line!
