Spruce Up You Home This CNY With New Colours
Here are Khaw’s trend predictions and home decor ideas for CNY 2019:-
Achieve A Balance
Instead of an explosion of colours, Khaw suggest a slightly monotone look for something different. This doesn’t necessarily mean shades of gray and black. Rather, choose a favourite colour and incorporate lighter and darker shades of it. Commenting on how interior design trends usually aligns with fashion trends, Khaw is of the opinion that the monotone look is making a comeback. “Try to be more balanced in terms of tones, where the colours are more toned down,” offers Khaw.
