Life in Singapore

Our Living Room Makeover in Singapore

Admittedly, we’ve never been the type of people that spend a lot of time or effort into designing a space… but that changed once working from home became the new normal. I’m sure you can relate!

Earlier this year, we took the plunge and invested in new furniture and decor items to give our living room a full transformation and make it feel more like “us”. We wanted our living space to evoke a sense of coziness, relaxation and serenity and we’re really pleased with the result.

If you’re looking to uplift your home style, I hope you find this post useful. Towards the end, I’ve also included some of our favorite places to buy furniture and decor in Singapore.

The Makeover


  • Replaced our blue IKEA 3-seater sofa with a bigger sofa sectional in a neutral tone
  • Bought a coffee table
  • Bought seating cushions
  • Styled the sofa with cozy throws
  • Put up photo frames
  • Added standing lamp
