My home is my pride & joy!

How many times to do you walk through the door of a home and instantly feel comfortable and “at home”? As homeowners we all want to create spaces that are welcoming, beautiful, comfortable and liveable. To achieve this, it is very important to choose the right fixtures, furniture and furnishings. Whether you are moving into a new home or just thinking about sprucing up your living and entertaining areas for Hari Raya, here are a few key elements that you should consider.

1/ Walk this way


If your floors are beginning to look old and worn why not think about installing timber floors? Wooden floors are beautiful, durable, easy to maintain, are great for people with allergies and are also eco-friendly.


2/ Light Appeal


Chandeliers and bold pendant lighting are a great way to update your home décor. And with the flick of a switch these fixtures will also brighten up any room.


3/ Window Dressings


Choosing new window dressings whether in the form of luxurious curtains or modern blinds will put the finishing touch to your room.


4/ Trending colours


Peeling wall paint and scuff marked walls are a definite eyesore! Why not repaint your walls with this year’s soothing Mediterranean blues and greens or be bold with aubergine, pink and orange? A new coat of paint will certainly give your living space an instant facelift. Alternatively, textured wallpaper is stylish and will add a touch of glamour to your room.


5/ Focus on furniture


Maybe it’s time to consider replacing your faded, lumpy sofa with something more inviting and comfortable. There are a variety of styles and designs available locally that will suit every taste and budget.
