I always get excited around this time of year, because that’s when the annual Singapore Design Week takes place. This year, it runs from March 4-17, and includes events such as Design Trailblazers, a showcase of works that have won National Design awards by Cooper Hewitt, and President’s Design awards; and Singaplural, an exhibition featuring cross-disciplinary design created in collaboration between local and foreign brands and designers.

Hot on the heels of Tom Dixon’s first collaboration project with Danish furniture giant Ikea comes a new addition to his Delaktig series - a customisable bed. Homeowners can now make (we mean, construct) their bed and sleep in it, literally – by simply changing the accessories that go with it. Refresh the look of your bedroom by swopping the black headboard for another made with woven rattan, or add bedside lamps if you enjoy Netflixing in bed.

The Delaktig bed is available at all Ikea stores and website. Visit http://ikea.sg for more information.…

According to Heleen van Gent, creative director of Akzonobel’s Global Aesthetic Center: “It’s a colour which can be calming or nourishing, stimulating and energising, depending on the light and colours surrounding it.” With that in mind, it makes sense to treat this shade as a contrasting note to a lighter main colour used in the same space. In the kitchen pictured, Spiced Honey is used as a ceiling colour, tempering the brighter accents of the accessories and the neutral tone on the walls. the experts “At first glance, it’s easy to dismiss this colour simply because we’re used to associating such…
