Can you tell us abit more about yourselves? (e.g. what do you do for fun or to relax?)
I work with babies in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a job that I am passionate about and enjoy.
Being a coffee lover, on my off days, I relax by going to cafes or enjoying home made ones with the company of books and my cat. These days I’m into pour-over coffee styles.
Describe to us your home decor style (and your home inspirations)
I love warm and neutral decor styles in minimalist Japanese concept, which is characterised by clean lines and natural finishes.
I generally go for wood furnitures which gives a cozy and relaxing mood. Many of my inspirations and furniture come from MUJI or Instagram accounts that I follow.
How did you come up with the inspirations before your renovation? How did you pitch to your ID your dream house?
I didn’t engage with any ID as my renovation process was relatively simple and of a small scale. I referenced MUJI articles, as well as referred to social media for ideas on how to design my storage spaces combined with cat essential furniture for my little one.
Which is your favourite area of your home and why?
My favourite area would definitely be my bedroom as it is the most cozy part of the house.
How do you style your home, and what do you look out for when you buy home decor pieces?
I try to keep things simple, after all less is more. When styling my place, I try to match the colour palettes and styles of my furniture and decor.
When it comes to scents, what are some of your favourites?
One of my go-to scents would be vanilla, a sweet and delicate scent which is always soothing and comforting.
Depending on mood, I also like fresh scents, such as blends of herbs and citrus.
Tell us what you like about Pristine? (any particular scents or aesthetic)
My favourite Pristine scent would be the English Country Inn
that has a sweet floral scent that I always appreciate. I especially love how their Reed Diffusers have a long lasting scent even after putting them out for weeks, unlike some other brands which I have tried.
I also love the aesthetic of their Candle Warmer
which easily blends into my current interior. It is also easy to use and the dial knob makes it convenient as well.
Tell us how you use Pristine (e.g. which scents/products are better for which rooms)
I do not have a specific preference as to which rooms should have a certain type of smell. I have a few favourites and simply decide as and when.
I use the Room Spray
after cleaning up my cat's litter area or when I simply want a nice aroma while I work.
And the Aroma Concentrates
are usually used when I am hosting friends or family at my place.
