Bedlinen is another easy way to add colour to your home. This linen bedding set from Sunday Bedding is durable and highly breathable, and suitable for sensitive skin and need to frequently wash your sheets. It’s ultra-durable and will stand the test of time; its texture will soften with each wash to become soft and cocooning. The air-washed linen also ensures a consistent texture while consuming less water than the traditional stone washing process.
This two-tone resin box from Forbidden Hill is ideal for storing small jewellery pieces and keepsakes; its curved surface brings out the vivid colour and shine of the lacquered finish.
Featuring a high-gloss treatment on the exterior and an interior in a matte finish, the lacquered resin box from the Utama collection is inspired by Sang Nila Utama’s historic encounter with the king of beasts.

Juxtaposing the old and the new, this skyline scene depicts the iconic buildings and skyscrapers of Singapore’s Marina Bay district; this artwork is available in a limited-edition run of 20 canvas prints and is made upon order.
This canvas print is a digital reproduction of an original artwork by Deborah McKellar. The original mixed-media artwork combined acrylic painting, silk screen printing, fabric appliqués and stitchwork on a linen canvas. Wave motifs have also been added to the foreground as a tribute to the Singapore River as well as the island’s port-city past.
