Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - Editor’s Note -

In the world of fash­ion, Septem­ber is when all the new col­lec­tions are re­leased, and brand new colours, trends, and prints make their way into the mar­ket. The in­te­rior de­sign in­dus­try is closely linked to these trends, and more of­ten than not, what’s pop­u­lar on the run­way be­comes equally pop­u­lar at home. It makes sense when you con­sider that we dress our­selves with our favourite looks and then go on to dress our homes with an ex­ten­sion of that love. And to dress our homes, we need ma­te­ri­als; tiles, fab­rics, and wall­pa­per.

This Oc­to­ber, we’re draw­ing inspiratio­n from our favourite ma­te­ri­als for ful­fill­ing dream home goals. Check out our spe­cial shoot, fea­tur­ing looks that will take you from flo­rals to pas­tels to the wilder­ness of the jun­gle, on Also look to for our fab­ric fea­ture, with tips on how to pair pat­terned and plain fur­nish­ings and fab­rics! On a wider scope, we’re ex­cited to share our favourite de­sign­ers from around the world, so do turn to

At Home & Decor, we be­lieve in mak­ing sure that the home is well-main­tained in terms of fix­tures, fur­nish­ings, and var­i­ous home com­forts. This is why we’ve put to­gether a Home Im­prove­ment fea­ture. Check it out on We’re also go­ing nat­u­ral with wood as a ma­te­rial, which, in any home, adds warmth and char­ac­ter.
