When it comes to decorating your first home as a young couple, there are four main styles that are most popular in Singapore.
From using pops of colour, to cosy, minimalist and monochrome interior design trends, young couples are creating homes that suit their lifestyle. Here are some great examples of how these four interior design styles can be used to create a super stylish home for a young couple.
1. Pops of Colour
Mixing materials like timber, concrete, glass and metal framing creates a slick, modern space for a young couple. This Bendemeer Road apartment has strong splashes of blue and orange that sets off the more muted and neutral tones.
2. Cosy and Comfortable
Sticking to the comfortable and warm feelings of Scandinavian interior design styles, the idea of a cosy home is also very popular with young couples setting up their homes for the first time. This Hougang apartment uses warm timber to break up the all-white interior design scheme.
