Singapore Style: Shophouse Beauty


This week we had visitors and we loved showing my lovely sister in law and her friends around Singapore! It is always so wonderful to see everyone's reaction to the modernity here but also the beauty of what traditional architecture still remains. My favorite buildings are certainly the classic Singaporean shophouses built mostly in the 18th century during British colonial rule. These homes have an eclectic mix of European Neo-Classical and traditional Chinese design details. They are are also known for their lively color schemes! Today most are still used as homes or as cozy restaurants or stores. I did a mini design history of shophouses here for those interested in more info. 

Here are a few of my favorite instagramed snapshots . . . please come visit us and we will show you around too! 








With love from SGP!
