Building a dream home is a challenge, especially if you’re doing it on your own. While interior designers can help with the first stage of your renovation works, it’s often up to the homeowners how they want to style and decorate their spaces after the handover. With that in mind, local home styling specialist Wandewoo offers a plethora of well-curated and chic design accessories so homeowners can easily get the perfect finishing touches for their abodes in one convenient location. Here are nine simple ways you can add personality and character to your spaces.
1) Let the professional do the work
Not sure if you have the eye or time for choosing the right accessories to match your interiors? Leave it to Sonny Boey, Wandewoo’s founder and stylist, to help you get everything you need. Every item at Wandewoo has been carefully curated by Sonny, allowing you to mix and match the designer pieces easily. Wandewoo’s wide array of home accessories, ranging from artworks to vases, floral accents and ornaments, are produced by artisanal labels from all over the world, giving your home the multi-layered and unique look that you are looking for.
2) Get a focal point for your tabletops and counters
Start by styling your tabletops and counters first, before moving on to the rest of the spaces. Create an interesting focal point with artistic statements, such as these cotemporary sculptures and figurines handmade from cast iron. These creative accents are mounted on a black marble base, adding a subtle yet luxurious touch to elevate the feel of the space.
3) Don’t forget the walls
Giving your home a layered look is easy as long as you don’t forget to dress in up with a multi-dimensional approach. That means taking into account the table tops, floors as well as walls. Instead of flat paintings, opt for these standout decorative wall additions instead. The handcrafted titanium sunburst mirror (made of copper wire and stainless steel) and stick figure artwork (made of cast iron with a metallic gold finish) give your home a modern and sophisticated look.
4) Add engaging centrepieces
Having interesting objects to keep your guests entertained help to make your home feel warm and cosy. Consider adding these classy gamesets on your coffee table or console. The elegant chessboard is made of zinc alloy with MDF finish so the surface is smooth and easy to clean, while the tic-tac-toe board is made of stainless steel and wood. Aside from being a conversation starter, these games also help to break the ice during a home party.
5) Get the right holders for your greenery
Plants bring energy and life into your home, so having them around helps to liven up the atmosphere. However, it’s also important to ensure that you are presenting them in the right way. With a warm bronze finish, slender legs and crossbar support, these planters have a sleek, timeless appeal that go perfectly with any interior style. When placed in a corner, these stylish floor planters elevate the look of your plants, while adding depth to your space.
6) Set the scene with ambient candlelight
There’s nothing like the glow of candlelight in the evenings to lend the perfect finishing touch to a beautifully styled space. You’ll find a wide range of impressive cast iron candle holders at Wandewoo, from modern-looking origami-style bamboo leaves to the timeless look of Oriental-style terracotta warriors in a cool metallic finish.
7) Choose a unique home fragrance
Scents help to leave a deep impression on your guests, so it’s important to find one that can reflect your personality and character. Wandewoo offers a diverse selection of fragrant candles, so you’ll be able to find one that tells the story of your home. These organic soy-wax candles are made with natural essential oils, ensuring that no hazardous materials are produced as well as prolonging their burning time (compared with paraffin candles). Packaged in contemporary ceramic-cylinder containers created and hand-painted by skilled craftsmen in Thailand, they’re great as housewarming gifts too.
8) Create an impressive dinner setting
Impress your guests by decorating your dining table or kitchen island with beautiful tableware like serving bowls, trays and baskets. Add a classy look to any setting with the oval iron tray, which has an antique brass finish and mirrored base. A practical accessory to have in the kitchen, use it to display snacks, pastries and drinks for easy access and stylish presentation. Introduce colour by pairing fruit with the brass-finished, iron-based, hourglass bowl.
9) Keep your surfaces clutter-free
Don’t destroy the look of your home with messy tabletops or dressers. Store your jewellery and trinkets neatly in these elegantly designed boxes, so you can keep them free from dust and dirt. Select from three designs and pair them with matching photo frames or table clocks to complete the look.
