Fresh new start at home



One of the easiest ways to refresh your home in this new year season is by updating some accessories. Instead of going for a specific look that’s on-trend, you can try sticking to a specific colour. This way, your range of styles will be wider, and you won’t get stuck with a look that may eventually go out of style. While going around SM Home at The SM Store, I found some the neatest blue accessories. Blue has the effect of calmness and serenity.


This pitcher’s shade of blue is a great addition to any home. It has a nice rustic carafe shape but the handle gives it more practicality. I also like the double lined plastic mason jars. I’ve been using glass for my juices. But this is great for the kids’ drinks.


This sofa will work well in a condo or in a family room. It looks so inviting that you just want to plop yourself in the middle of that crease. SM Home also has a wide selection of framed wall art. You may consider a seasonal rotation of framed art.


I love the simple lines of this chair. And that blue fabric upholstery just gives it a modern Scandinavian vibe.


I’m loving these storage bins. They really make it easy to stay organized. And I particularly love these blue and white striped version.


Serve ware that looks like expensive cookware.


A little rustic, a little country. Perfect tableware for breakfast.

    Love those styles! We’re doing some renovations to our apartment so will try to imitate that. Thanks! 🙂

    Hello Daphne!
    The internet led me to your blog and I’m here wanting to click every single link and entry. I rarely post anything on the internet but I just have to say that we have the same style & taste!
    I can’t believe you created those chic chairs @Dimensione, I just thought then that I was meant to own one because it’s exactly what I want (and it’s my namesake 🙂 ).
    I love your NBS line too! The same prints and patterns I tend to choose. Thanks for making our name classy and tasteful 😉
