A home may be designed and built to suit a purpose, but it is the choice of furnishing and decoration that reveals its owner’s tastes, preferences and personality.
In the same way a novelist makes use of details to tell a story, define a character and add a sense of place, a homemaker does the same by sprucing up the abode with finer features such as a splash of colour on the walls, a curious art piece or an inimitable centre-piece—elements which contribute to the familiarity and comfort of home.
As far as first impressions go, such decorative elements go a long way in making an impression on guests to the home, while statement pieces can inspire conversation. At their most intimate, the combination of decorative elements may even reveal a facet of the homeowner’s character, where the choices influenced by experiences.
The World, At Home
To help discerning homeowners find the essentials which match hearth and heart, home lifestyle boutique Bespoke Living has recently opened its doors in Scotts Square, in the heart of downtown Orchard Road.
Boasting an extensive collection of home décor accessories, home accents, curios, objet d’ art and made-to-order statement pieces, the individual items have either been hand-picked or sourced from all over the world by founder Schezene Khan on her travels.
Making no compromise, Schezene’s sourcing trips have taken her far beyond the region to places as far flung as the United States. The result of her dedication in curating the collection leaves clients spoilt for choice. Uniqueness, luxury, elegance and unmistakable quality are the constants standing out as beacons of what Bespoke Living has on offer.
Driven by a deep-seated passion for all things beautiful, and in possession of an immaculate attention to detail, Schezene, a mother of five, has put together a diverse and remarkable collection that is at once contemporary and timeless but yet features hints of opulence, old-world charm, colour, fun and even some mystery to suit every whim and wallet.
There will be more at Bespoke Living than can be justifiably described on these pages, but who wouldn’t love adding dashes of flavour to your favourite room with capiz shell tea trays with drawers, transparent acrylic chests that double up as coffee tables, gold rimmed agate stone napkin rings or even triple-tiered bird cage dessert servers?
After all, as Schezene believes, the appeal for beautiful things may sway with the fashion and the times, but they will never go out of style.
A Bespoke Difference
Aside from an accessible price point that will appeal to anyone looking to add some zest and zing to their living spaces, Bespoke Living also prides itself on its hospitality.
Besides warmly welcoming clients to browse the collections at leisure with a cup of coffee or tea, boutique staff at Bespoke Living will go the extra mile to ensure that clients are satisfied with both the boutique experience and the purchases that will make the distinctive difference in their homes.
