Pinterest has rolled out its Pinterest 100 report, and among those are a bevy of home decor-related trends that have sparked our interest.
And while some of them aren’t quite feasible for most Singapore homes (granny pods, for instance, which are small modular homes that are outfitted with high-tech medical features), here are 10 decor ideas to inspire and refresh your space.
1. GARDEN HOMES
Otherwise known as the jungalow. It’s no secret that being surrounded by greenery is good for you, and the jungalow fad of 2018 looks set to be an evergreen trend. If you’d like to come home to an urban tropical paradise, here are the five best indoor plants that are perfect for sprucing up your space.

According to Pinterest, microgreens are on-trend right now. Grow herbs and salad fixings for your own farm-to-table (or should we say balcony-to-dinner-table) experience right at home.
Here are tips to grow your own edible garden.
3. THRIFTED HOME DECOR

Another way to go green: sussing out vintage or second-hand furniture or giving your old ones a new lease of life instead of sending them to the dump.
You’ll be surprised at how a fresh coat of paint or reupholstering can transform a worn-out piece of furniture. Places to check out: Hock Siong & Co., Second Charm and The Godown.
4. SPANISH-STYLE BATHROOMS
If vibrant colours and rich patterns are your sort of thing, then take a leaf from Pinterest’s assortment of Spanish-style bathrooms.
Too flamboyant for your taste? Incorporate just one or two elements to jazz up a minimalist space. Patterned tiles, for example, are hallmarks of Spanish interiors.
5. HOME THEATRES & AUDIO ROOMS

Your movie dates at home or Netflix binge at home just got upgraded. Audio rooms solely for enjoying your tunes are also popular with Pinterest’s music lovers.
But not everyone’s got a spare room or budget for an entertainment room. Consider dedicating a corner instead, or get a projector and use a blank (preferably white) wall. Arm yourself with comfy covers, pillows and popcorn, and you’re all set.
6. COFFEE STATIONS
Waking up every morning and heading to a cafe for your daily brew might not be doable for most, but you sure can add a little pizzazz to your morning routine.
Or if you often play host, it makes for an impressive focal point in your kitchen or living room.
From carts to dressers or even under-utilised space on your counter, there are plenty of ways to savour your java in style.
7. WATER FEATURES

You might associate water features with good fengshui but the sound of trickling water does lend a sense of tranquility and calm to your space.
8. JAPANESE-STYLE SOAKING TUBS
9. FRENCH ANTIQUES

Evoke the romance of a bygone era with furnishings that capture the feel of real antiques.
French-inspired decorative accents, like patinated mirrors and farm linens, are among some of the most favoured pins right now.
