In celebration of the 15th anniversary of Tatler Homes Singapore, we look back at some of the most popular decor trends in the past decade

Since the publication of its first issue in November 2005, Tatler Homes Singapore has featured numerous beautiful homes around the world. Ranging from modern minimalist styles, colourfully eclectic houses to nature-inspired abodes inspired by our tropical climate, these various design trends continue to shape the way we decorate our homes.

In celebration of the bi-monthly magazine's 15th anniversary, we look back at some of the key styles with a perennial appeal, which we have featured across the years. Take decor cues from these stylish abodes.

1/5 Resort-inspired abodes with tropical influences

Inspired by the relaxed resort vibe of vacation villas, these tranquil abodes convey an effortless look catered to our sunny climate. It's easy to see why this trend continues to be popular, especially as we're spending more time at home. Combine outdoor pieces with cheery tones on furnishings that take cues from fresh blooms and bright colours from nature.

Shades like blue and green are among the top picks. Depending on the shade that you pick, these colours can create various types of atmospheres. Light blue and other pastel tones can contribute to the restful atmosphere, while rich shades like emerald green and royal blue can add to the sumptuous look of a room.

and black-and white bungalows
 

These houses let architectural elements become the focal point of the home; the building and interior architecture become as noteworthy as the ways that the spaces are furnished. The interior is kept deliberately minimalist to let the playful architectural features standout—these include colourful windows, a tiered ceiling to 'floating' concrete blocks.

5/5 Maximalist designs that are bold and daring

The more the better—these stunning spaces make a statement with an exuberant mix of patterns and colours. Take inspiration from their colourful approach to interior design by going all out with cheerfuk colours and a brave mix of patterns.

The key to nailing this eclectic look: mix and match patterns in a similar colour scheme, or play with contrasting colours to make the most of this bold theme.
