4 Interior Design Styles that Young Couples Love


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 on trend Scandinavian furniture styles with fun pops of colour - particularly lemon yellow, blue and the green of indoor plants - this Telok Blangah apartment is a great style choice for a young couple. Quirky home accessories and funky lighting options add to the youthful vibe.

If starck black and white is a bit too harsh for your taste, adding dashes of grey and pale timber furniture can create a simple but welcoming home, like this Sumang Lane apartment.
