If you pride yourself on having a fun, eclectic side to your personality, then you’ll surely want to translate that in your home interiors. Trouble is, eclectic aesthetics usually need a bold interior canvas to feel truly majestic. But since the typical urban landscape of Singapore only allows small spaces, here are a few tips that you can color your homes fun and unique:
1. Cushions and area rugs
Couch cushions and area rugs provide the perfect opportunity to have fun with your home interior design. These days, you can find cushions in almost any style and area rugs in every kind of pattern. You can combine and contrast both elements to get what you need. The under-sea themed rug and food-inspired cushions in this image are the perfect example.
2. Simple backdrop + bold accents
The best way for the fun elements to shine in your spaces is by keeping the backdrop as simple as possible. This way, whenever you introduce an eclectic piece of furniture or accessory, it’ll stand out more than ever. Note that if the backdrop is light, your furnishings can be vividly colored a la yellow couch, blue area rug, or even a multi-colored accent chair.
3. Use plants and metal accents
One of the best ways to make your spaces as fun as possible while also maintaining a sense of sophistication about them is by using plants and metal accented accessories as décor elements. These are especially impactful as the vivid green of both natural and artificial plant leaves naturally complement the gold of all sorts of trinkets and baubles really well.
4. Be choosy with your baubles
The kind of accessories that you emulate in your fun spaces have to be chosen selectively. Since you’re going for a fun vibe, you can decorate with colorful and eclectic pieces and place them in the most apparent spaces throughout the home. You can choose pieces that express your tastes and personality. This image features a great example of how you can do so.
5. Fun everyday essentials
Everyday home essentials can make a huge difference in how your overall interior design comes across as. You can display a quirky set of crockery, your avant-garde mug collection, and even a few unique photo frames on the wall to get the fun across.
