I recently moved in with my boyfriend who’s living in Singapore. I’m not one to stay in one place for long, but for the mean time, I guess that Singapore would be my home. My boyfriend, let’s call him G, has not really furnished his house yet, so we had to go shopping for some furniture over the weekend. G had a small garden area where he wanted to place some teak benches and perhaps an outdoor swing in, thankfully we found a really helpful website that provided us with a list of furniture stores, see here and here. We also referred to houzz.com for some inspiration, it’s a great site with lots of photos.
Besides outdoor furniture, we wanted to get some furniture for our bedroom too. I recently chanced upon this video showcasing Italian-Designed space saving furniture, it’s definitely something that we’re considering to get. It’s always nice to have more space in the home. One of my local friends live in a HDB, I wonder if she has any space saving furniture in her house.
There are some themes and designs that we want. None of that oriental and antique stuff, we want something that’s more Scandinavian and simple in style. I’m always a fan of keeping it simple, whether it be furnishing houses, or traveling light. Speaking of Nordic style furniture, have you seen this video of handcrafted Scandinavian furniture? It’s absolutely lovely!
I’m really looking forward to the shopping trip (which girl doesn’t like shopping right?), I think it would be a good chance for me to travel around Singapore and experience the sights and sounds. I know, it’s furniture shopping, it’s not going to be as interesting as trekking through a forest or touring a museum, but I think I’ll be able to enjoy it nonetheless. Till then, cheerios!
