Black & White

Keeping it simple with the colours can also be a fashionable style of room decor in Singapore. This room decor idea is for those who love absolute simplicity with their hues. Why stress about colour mixtures when you can get the best of both extremes? Black and white room decor also allows the eyes to focus on the form of the room design rather than on hues alone. You can even complement the black and white room decor with various types of accents. Our recommendation would be a good selection of plant decor. Something along the lines of vines or ferns.

Natural Wood

Here’s the perfect room decor idea for lovers of Muji furniture. The recent Muji fandom has led to many new homeowners in Singapore adopting a natural wood room design. But if you’re not keen on going full-on Muji, you can still complement your existing room design with natural wooden room decor. After all, wood was the original choice of furniture and is still well liked among homeowners today. You could even consider combining natural wood room decor with other room decor themes.

Marble

If you’re looking for a chic look, try marble room decor. Marble accents make anything look classy. It’s no surprise why fashion accessories have adopted marble prints for its dose of elegance. Although, you might want to use this room decor idea sparingly as it only goes well with plain and pastel backdrops. So if your current room design has lots of funky colours then it would be wise to stay away from marble.

Tired of the Singaporean city life and need a private getaway? While plane tickets are pricey, you can still decorate your home with a rural feel instead. Although an uncommon room design idea, homeowners in Singapore do consider rustic room decor for its calming effect. It’s a style of room design that tips the hat to simpler times. All that’s missing is a good cup of breakfast tea to go with the decor’s ambiance.

Moroccan

Love some Middle Eastern vibes? Then surround yourself with Moroccan accents. Our recommendation would be the Moroccan wall decor. The unique patterns and colour mixtures go well with most furniture design styles. We don’t advise going full Moroccan though. The style works best as a complementary room decor to existing room designs like the Scandinavian and patterned plants. It’s a good way to break the monotony of a single style in the home.
