Go Big, Go Home
Home & Decor Malaysia|October 2019
Maximalist designs, sharp jewel tones, colour blocking, and Memphis style; frequently intersecting in the many faces of design, these aesthetics come together to lend sumptuous flair and vintage chic to the homes of today. And for the home of any modern style savant, what could possibly be better?

JEWELLER’S CHOICE

Intense, vibrant, and rich, jewel tones easily impart a sense of understated luxury into any space. Paired with darker materials like black Negro Marquina marble, these effortlessly chic colors pop with ease, drawing the eye and lending an air of colorful sophistication that is in vogue for any modern, fashionable home.

DIAMONDS ARE A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND

Once again popularised in the season’s patterns and prints, repeating diamonds in jewel tones serve quite well to brighten up any neutral space. Pair larger prints with smaller prints for some contrast, and don’t forget to play off all that color against a lighter backdrop and flat-color furnishings and accessories.
