Mood Board | Peranakan

A few days ago we have a visit to Joo Chiat. Walking down the streets you can find many elements of the Peranakan-style building. It makes us wonder what will it be like if we uses this element at home?

Go big or go home, is a phrase that can best describe Peranakan style homes. Conventionally, they are loud and ornate, with a predisposition towards sturdy solid wood furniture. But in today’s KonMarie world, where less is more, homeowners here are taking a more pared-back, subdued approach to this traditionally decorated style. But the good news is, the spaces are no less distinctive and full of personality.

One of the elements that are easily used is tiles, it can easily make a big difference to your home. There are many unique and colour for you to choose from. Doors were designed using jade green porcelain tiles, embossed glass panels and inset framed tiles is a treat. Dark wood cabinets are also an important element in Peranakan-style homes.

xoxo, Joe
