Heart Of The Home

Your home is more than four walls and a roof; these small, yet im­pact­ful ways will help bring warmth and in­di­vid­u­al­ity to your living space

Singapore Women's Weekly (Singapore) - - SETTER STYLE -

SPRING-CLEAN OF­TEN A clut­tered space only in­creases stress lev­els; you’ll be amazed at how a bit of stream­lin­ing and scrub­bing can in­stantly make your home look and feel brighter.

GET COM­FORT­ABLE Be it a fuzzy new rug or cush­ion cov­ers, soft fur­nish­ings usher in that ul­tra-comfy fac­tor. Plus, car­pets and drapes ab­sorb sounds like voices, foot­steps and scrap­ing chairs that can make a room feel hol­low and cold, so layer away!

RE­MEM­BER WHERE YOU’VE BEEN Curate a thought­ful dis­play by cor­ralling mean­ing­ful trin­kets and ob­jects from your trav­els onto a chic tray or dis­play shelf. It’ll ser ve as a dec­o­ra­tive cen­ter­piece to an­chor a side­board, cof­fee ta­ble or din­ing area, but also evoke mem­o­ries of places you’ve vis­ited.

ADD SOFT LIGHT­ING While ceil­ing lights are prac­ti­cal for daily ac­tiv­i­ties, switch­ing on a warm pen­dant lamp (or two) by your bed, or a stand­ing lamp in the living room, can dra­mat­i­cally change the mood of the room and cre­ate a re­lax­ing at­mos­phere.

SHOW OFF THE FAM­ILY Cre­ate a unique galler y by fram­ing up pho­to­graphs from fam­ily trips or care­fully se­lected ar tpieces on the wall. It gives your home per­son­al­ity, and the frames add weight and im­por­tance.

Round mar­ble tray, from $79, from Comme Home.

Agio lus­trous jute rug, from $490, from Depar­tures & Ar­rivals.

Char­lie con­crete pen­dant lamp, $49.90, from Hip­van.
