Give the Inside of Your Reserve at Regency Park Apartment a Lift with These Decorating Tips

Reserve at Regency Park gives you everything you need to make your apartment a cozy and stylish home, but now it’s your turn to take the reigns and make it your own.  In other words, we’ve given you the space and now it’s your job to fill it.  I know that decorating isn’t everyone’s “thing,” but there are plenty of little touches you can add that build up to a big impact.  You’d be surprised at how many people enter homes and pick up on the smallest details first.  “Hey, where did you get those sconces?” they say.  “I love that figurine on your shelf; it’s precious!” If it’s a struggle for you to put in the time for a complete overhaul, just take it in baby steps – one piece here, one decoration there.  Trust me; it’ll be a lot easier that way.  See what you think of the tips below, courtesy of the blog Home Rejuvenation.

HOME REJUVENATED!

Designed for a family of four, this 3 bedroom apartment located at Waterfront Waves in Bedok Reservoir Road provided an opportunity for us to be a little more adventurous with patterns and materials.
A key design influence was the partially open layout that meant the dry kitchen is situated along the entry passageway, offering us the option to turn the latter into a mini gallery. The openness of the space, coupled with the expansive floor-to-ceiling sliding doors to the balcony brought in ample daylight, which give us the confidence to explore the darker tones and ‘busier’ textures and patterns without fearing that it will overwhelm the space.
Stone gray, black and white, which will stand the test of time and work extremely well together, introduce a calm atmosphere into the living room. These tones also complement the existing white homogeneous tiles on the floor as well as the darker walnut browns on the internal doors and fittings. Fitted cabinetry surrounds the TV screen, to keep visual clutter to a minimum and control the color palette. A stone-clad wall at the dining area brings out the rustic feel of nature, as well as lending visual interest to the room.
A home becomes cohesive when there is visual flow from one room to the other. The minimalist design approach is carried into each room, with colors providing the visual contrast required when necessary. When one walks into each room, we want the viewer to think of a different adjective for each: joyful for the 2 girls’ rooms and in the the master bedroom, restful.
The latter has especially been designed to evoke a hotel suite setting. The use of a neutral color palette is a departure from the other rooms and creates a tranquil, private space. We wanted the owners to feel invigorated and refreshed, as if they are in a different part of the world inside here.

HANDS-ON SUNDAY: LAMP MADE OUT OF CUPCAKE LINERS

I know I know. You’ve seen countless globe lights. But why spend money when you can make yourself one? One which is truly unique and beautiful, like the variation that Heather Jennings of Poppy Haus created out of decorative paper cupcake liners. It reminds me of Japanese lanterns and the layered lighting effect is truly awesome. Link

SHOW YOUR TRUE COLORS

Are rainbow colors necessarily just for kids? Are we adults resigned to the fate of living with ‘classic’ neutral or monochromatic colors only?

Highly provocative contrasting color combination works because we have long associated it to be a contemporary design or decor element. This is especially true in a dull old house. However, short of turning your home into a fairyland right out of your children’s’ storybooks by running amok with vivid colors everywhere, consider these head-turning furniture pieces or accessories in bursts of colors to inject your home with some much needed excitement.

You inner child will be very pleased.

PHOTOGRAPHY UMBRELLA LAMP BY EDWARDS MOORE

No, this is no photography studio. These are photography umbrellas serving as lamp shades, a very playful way to spice up a room. The shape of it possesses this sculptural and ethereal feel to it, which the designers at Edwards Moore used to their advantage in creating a part art installation, part light fitting for one of their office projects.

Did you come across other uses of umbrellas in interior design? Let us know!

3 (OVERLOOKED) THINGS YOU MUST DO TO ENHANCE YOUR HOME INTERIORS

‘Clutter’ your home with objects of personal interest

It sounds totally insane to hear this coming from me, given the fact that I have always emphasized the importance of decluttering on this blog.

You might not have realized this, but a few vignettes – the knick knacks you love and wish to display in your home, like paintings, lamps and collectibles – can be as important as a sofa or a bed in your home. One will almost immediately realize the great improvement a corner or a table dedicated to displaying objects of personal interest can make to the overall environment inside a house. The key is to create that lived-in feel, in contrast to a show flat look, by showcasing your favorite items in a neat, organized manner.

And contrary to what you might be thinking, the art of displaying objects can be learned.

Be entertained at home

In my opinion, any home without music playing is like an empty soul. A completed home should intrigue all of our senses, rather than just looking good. The music you spin is totally your call, as long as you enjoy it.

In the past 2 to 3 years, we have seen a swathe of new technologies and devices emerge which is set to change the face of home entertainment forever. Digital audio and video formats have radically changed the way we listen to music or watch the latest Hollywood flicks, consigning drawers filled with CDs and DVDs to the proverbial scrap-heap (which is good news in our shrinking living spaces). In the not too distant future, a home media streamer connected to a network will become the norm in many homes. Enjoying your favorite music or movies streamed right out of your network storage has become a reality.

The importance of fragrance

Speaking of the senses, who can deny the appeal of a nice-smelling room? No matter how soft the bed sheets or how plush the sofa is, if the room has a displeasing odor, your enjoyment of the space will never be maximized.

With all the products on the market these days, it’s not easy to decide what to use to make your room smell good, although there are plenty of good tips around online. A scent junkie will tell you various options like scented candles, essential oils etc. The medium is not important -what’s important is the fragrance makes you feel refreshed and recharged.
