Vintage feels like home

Bloesem Kids | Vintage details in our Kids room

I just shared the before and after shots of an apartment we own here in Singapore on Bloesem Living. We have rented out this apartment because with my two little ones growing up quickly we needed abit more space but I would still like to share some pictures of the boys room and some of my favorite items in it.

I wanted to make the room warm by giving it vintage details .. often brand new apartments or homes can feel chilly and cold and bringing in items that are tooo new does not help make the space more cosy and homely so I decided to bring these old items from my youth to make the room more authentic and give it character.

It’s fun to show your little ones the toys that you enjoyed playing with when you were their age and it’s great to see them having fun with the toys as well. Shows how some things are truly timeless and worth keeping.

The art I chose to put up is by Reka Kiraly whom I have loved for the longest time.

    So nice! It reminds me that boys bedrooms don’t have to be all plastic and glossy. I especially love the mini chairs and that teak set of drawers!
