These aesthetically winning cafe interiors can be easily recreated for your new home.
For a warm and modern interpretation of vintage-styled interiors, then Merci Marcel would be a lovely starting point for your #homeinspo. A French café-restaurant located in Tiong Bahru, Merci Marcel is a chic French bistro in the day, serving breakfast and café brunch fare and turns into a classy restaurant and pub at night. It is brimming with a variety of woody tones, gold accents, botanical touches and ratten and retro furnishings – creating an atmosphere that’s part chic Parisian afternoons and part Havana nights. The mix of new and old is consistently carried out – the concrete-look wall is dressed up with a simple and round modern mirror and contrasted with botany murals, while the gloss and shine from marbled tables and bar tops contrast well with the vintage-styled matte hexagonal white-and-yellow tiled flooring.

We will probably never be as cool and fresh as A Juicery – which, for a lack of a better description, looks like a 2k17 Tumblr moodboard. Think neon signs, pink tiles with white grouting, pink walls and really just an all-over pink with black accents. It sounds overwhelming and it is, but in such a hip, alternative way that we can’t hate on it. While having your entire home in varying shades of pink is rather unrealistic, there are plenty of elements from this you can take and include in specific areas of your home. For example, having pink subway tiles for your kitchen backsplash or toilet floors would definitely jazz up your home. Neon signs are also coming into their own as wall décor. We love the fresh pink and black colour combination as well. A Juicery 21 Lorong Telok, Singapore 049033 All images by A Juicery. If you’re a creature of comfort, look no further than KARA Café and Dessert Bar by the good people of Sogurt for a dose of very aesthetic #homeinspo.
