With travel spending on hold and lots of time spent at home, it’s little surprise that more and more Singaporeans are taking the time to renovate and redecorate. Whether you’re looking to make a few small updates to your bedroom, or are planning to completely gut and overhaul the place, there is no shortage of experienced, thoughtful interior design firms and lifestyle brands offering quality products and services to get you started on your next home improvement project.
Here are some we’ve got our eye on this month.
A whole new vibe by Aratamete
Aratamete helps clients transform their homes through soft furnishings. Gorgeously draping curtains featuring linen and recycled polyester; cool-to-the-touch Tencel rugs; and natural textured wall-coverings can create a minimal and calming aesthetic that is the brand’s calling card. A big change doesn’t always involve a renovation – and who better to help you than Aratamete? Their parent company Artelier has decades of experience providing soft furnishings to hospitality projects across the region. Set up a style consultation at their dreamy, airy showroom on River Valley Road, or visit the official website.
