And just like that, it's that time of year again! One minute you're taking down the tree and packing away all the signs of Santa and Christmas, and the next you're writing Naughty and Nice shopping lists and throwing in some goodies for yourself while you're at it — and hey, I might be talking from experience but let's not get distracted!
So while we've all racked up a good stash of holiday-themed decor at this stage, it's always nice to add in a few new pieces to add to the decorating excitement. And since we're coming up to 2 years of living through the madness that is a global (hopefully once-in-a-lifetime) pandemic, why not use this Christmas season to add extra pizzazz to your festive home styling.
There is no shortage of delicious, modern, and fun decorations this year either. I don't usually spill the beans on my favourite suppliers and sources, but I'm in the holiday spirit so soak it in! Here are 15 wonderful shops to indulge in this Christmas:
There's no hiding the fact that 3 Little Picks is my absolute go-to for super trendy, ultra-cute home decor in Singapore. Founded by the incredible Apple Tang over 8 years ago, 3 Little Picks has grown into the best loved contemporary homeware store stocking all of our favourite European brands and come Christmas time, this will be your one-stop-shop for the cutest tree baubles, coolest tableware, and chicest festive gifts.
2. Ferm Living
Scandinavian furniture and homeware brand Ferm Living brings sophistication to your Christmas decor with a touch of nostalgia. Think modern advent calendars and trendy candles.
3. Island Living
We are so excited to see another local furniture brand we use and love release a Christmas decor range this year! Island Living will bring a sweet tropical touch to this year's interiors.
For those of you looking to keep things a bit more traditional but have a keen eye for Scandi design, look no further than Skandium. You'll find all the classics like snowflake tree decoration and advent candle calendars with a heavy sprinkle of gold, red and green.
Arket has mastered modern tree baubles with their signature paper honeycomb designs. Available in a range of trendy colours like dusty pink, off-white and gold, these are sure to wow your guests (kids included!) this holiday season.
Smallable is another one of our most-loved online stores to use for our styling projects. With a range of brands like Madam Stoltz, House Doctor, and Bloomingville, there's something for everyone here. We also love their take on sustainability through eco-friendly materials like wood and paper which are great for the kids.
7. Affordable Style Files
I always love when I find decor and accessories that will work year round, and ASF has a fantastic range of whimsical and playful decor that will work great in your Christmas-styled home as well as later in the year. You can never go wrong with candles and cute vases right!
8. Next SG
With everything from stockings to faux trees and oh-so-cute snowman shaped bath mat's, Next SG has a huge range of classic yet modern decor that won't break the bank. The affordable price tag on everything definitely makes it just that bit more enjoyable to shop!
Stylodeco has Singapore's best range of upcoming designer brands, all handpicked by the incredible founder Helene. Have you noticed a trend of kickass female entrepreneurs doing amazing things in the local design and interiors industry yet?! Minimal and modern, these decorations are simply stunning and will sparkle in anyone's Christmas home.
10. Jungle Emporium
Relative newbie to the scene, Jungle Emporium is just what it sounds like — an absolute haven of homeware with a tropical influence. Not all of us want a minimal Scandi-styled Christmas interior, so why not embrace a bit of eclecticism with unique boho decor that will really add a playfulness to your home this season.
11. Fenton & Fenton
Every time I see a new Fenton & Fenton post on Instagram I drool all over the screen. Too much info? Go check them out for yourselves! Based in Australia, these guys know a thing or 2 about colour. Reach out to them directly for shipping, they can usually accommodate. Their Wild Child Christmas Tree is not for everyone, but I think it's absolutely divine!
12. Anthroplogie SG
If you're looking for something a little off the beaten track, like a pet bed shaped as a modern Christmas tree, then look no further. Anthropolgie has a fun, colourful range of homeware that will surely help you get into the Christmas spirit.
13. Liberty London
If you've never heard of Liberty London, you better stop what you're doing right now. This London-based department store comes out with the best Christmas decor year after year. Their baubles are completely unique and perfect for those with a more-is-more approach to life and interior styling.
14. Marks & Spencer
Sometimes you just need to restock on the basics and M&S surely is the place to go for that. Think wreaths, packs of classic baubles, and sweet Christmas ornaments. You'll have Santa knocking on the door in the no time!
15. Urban Li'l
For a more personalised approach to your Christmas styling, check out local brand Urban Li'l. Known for their wall decals, they've got some great picks for the young ones like Disney themed ornaments with a modern take. Plus cute napkin holders, tree toppers and name tags.
