6 ways to update your home

Former graphic designer and owner of interior store Mondays Off, Leyna Poh, recommends some must-have home accessories
 

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

2 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."

3 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."

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

5 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."

6 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 at www.facebook.com/mondaysoff.
