Where do you source your furniture and décor from? A lot of my favourite pieces come from Junkie’s Corner – a great place for vintage furniture. I have also bought some beautiful pieces from Journey East and Originals. I collect a lot when I travel; I really like to have memories around me of all of the places that I’ve been. I’ve also found a few gems on HotLotz, Carousell and even Gumtree, including my much- loved pink Smeg fridge! What three items would you save in a fire (god forbid!)? Presuming that Mimi has saved herself, it would have to be my two favourite pieces of art and my Malay men’s wedding outfit (a Junkie’s Corner treasure but sadly too delicate to wear). Favourite thing about Singapore and the region? Coming from London, I would have to say the weather and the tropical plants. I have the doors and the shutters open all day and I love to be outside. I knew very little about tropical plants when I moved here and now I’m hooked for life. I love to visit the Botanic Gardens and am really in love with the natural landscape of this part of the world. After now living here for five years, what would your advice to newcomers be? I think it would be to fully embrace living here and to not live with a temporary mindset. I only expected to be here for two years, but I threw myself into building a home and a life here. It has been such an incredible experience.
