Rules Are Meant To Be Broken

Whether you’re intending to spruce up your room, or are a recent home owner planning the design of your new abode, interior design can be both exciting and stressful!

 

Forget the restrictive dos and don’ts. Here’re 5 rules that are meant to be broken.

 
 

SMALL ROOMS MUST BE WHITE

 

While this is partly true, it is also not a must. Feel free to use darker tones or textures, the size of your room have less to do with wall colour, and more with choice of furniture and placement of furniture.

Darker tones add warmth, and dimension to the room that an all white room can’t.

 

 
 

CEILING MUST BE WHITE

 

For the same reason as the above, yes, white is a safe choice of colour, but if you want to create a sense of sophistication or drama, opt for darker tones. There’re so many possibilities out there, go ahead and explore them!

 
 
 
 

BIG FURNITURE ARE ONLY MEANT FOR SPACIOUS ROOMS

 

There’s no denying that HDB flats in Singapore typically poses major space constraints. However, don’t assume you don’t have the luxury of space to accommodate larger furniture. Instead of filling the room with many small pieces, it is actually possible for the room to appear bigger with a few large pieces.

 

 
 

NEVER MIX PATTERNS AND PRINTS

 

Seriously, why not? There’s no better way to infuse your fun personality than introducing patterns to you home! And yes, stripes, checks and floral can all live under one roof!

 

 
 

EVERYTHING HAS TO MATCH

 

Matching set of furniture can be fuss-free, but it can look and feel corporate, and that’s the last thing you want to go home to after a long day out!

Feel free to play around with different styles, colours or textures!
