How to accessorise each room in your home

We speak to former graphic designer and owner of interior store Mondays Off, Leyna Poh, about home accessories that will jazz up your space!

IN THE LIVING ROOM

"A reading chair that differs from the style of your family sofa will inject personality into an otherwise ordinary space."

IN THE DINING ROOM

"This is where you eat with your family and bond with one another. So make it cosy by placing a standing plant in one corner – natural greens soften the look of any space. Experiment with different dining chairs. Have a common element as an anchor – for example, pick chairs of any design or colour, as long as they're made of wood."

IN THE BATHROOM

"Inject pops of colour by having a mirror framed in a neon shade. Or get colourful, patterned toilet brush holders for an unexpected touch."

IN THE KITCHEN

"Buy glass jars in varying shapes and sizes to store herbs, spices and condiments. They make great kitchen displays."

IN THE BEDROOM

"Use typography posters or cushions to add meaning to your personal space. I know of couples who adorn their bedroom walls with quotes about love, so they see them once they wake up; others choose motivational sayings."

AT THE FRONT DOOR

"People often overlook having a welcome mat but it's the first thing you see when you return home, and gives guests a warm welcome."

The Mondays Off store is located at 76 Haji Lane, Singapore. For more information, check out its Facebook page atwww.facebook.com/mondaysoff.
