A home is a space that reflects one’s personal taste. Coupled with the fact that we live in a time dominated by social media, it explains why most homeowners would go all out and spare no expenses when it comes to creating a home that they can be proud to show off. If you’re a millennial who’s always looking for inspiration on the ‘Gram, we have put together a list of Instagrammable homes that are attainable aesthetic goals to strive for!
1. This home takes the minimalist aesthetics to the next level with a clean and sharp colour scheme, using muted gold lines to convey a touch of class and elegance. If you are afraid to go too bold (and potentially gaudy) with gold, try going for muted gold finishes like what this home has done for an expensive yet understated look!

2. There is plenty to like about this home, with it being so darn easy on the eyes. The half-partition in the living room is an ingenious way of segregating spaces while making the room look airy and spacious at the same time. The colour choices for the cabinetry are also on point, looking like something that the brains behind MUJI would approve.

3. Homeowners these days are not shying away from painting their walls in different colours, and it appears that this trend is making a comeback. If grey is your colour of choice, shake things up by going for different shades of grey on your walls to create visual interest and impact. Grey might seem like a sombre colour choice for a home, but this home proves that it can be elevated into something cool and fun.

4. Geometric designs are fast creeping up the list of design trends to look out for, and they have sure crept their way into this chic apartment. The use of geometric designs against a plain hardwood floor adds instant pizzazz that is not overwhelming to the eye. We also love the surprising use of marble tiles under the display shelf, which is such a refreshing change of placement!

5. Another home that proves how muted gold is really the way to go to achieve an opulent look, this home makes it work by pairing it with gleaming marbled surfaces and rich shades of royal blue. We’re sure that this home can easily pass off as a high-end boutique hotel that everybody would love to have a staycation in!

6. For homeowners who love for things to be out in the open, this apartment shows you how to do it with class. These glass partition walls with sleek black frames are becoming an increasingly popular option in modern homes, because of how effortlessly sophisticated they look. Not only does the glass allow natural light to illuminate the house, it also helps to create the impression of a bigger and more spacious home.

7. Channel the calmness of sandy beaches by going for light, sand-coloured carpentry in your home. When put together with white walls, the resulting look is calming and pleasant, and evokes the tranquillity of traditional Japanese teahouses. Book lovers will surely appreciate the bright, sunny view while sipping matcha away on tatami mats.

8. There is something utterly charming and magical about how you can step into the dining area through the doorway built into the TV wall. In fact, this house oozes a bucketload of charm with its Scandinavian design that evokes nature through its use of light, wooden carpentry.

9. If you love colours but are unsure of how to make it work for your home, take cues from this home. Green - a soothing shade that breathes new life into timeworn spaces. This colour pairs well with greys, greens and blues. Are you bold enough to make the change?

10. Blues have never looked prettier, than they have in this cosy Scandinavian-style apartment. The varying shades of baby blue to powder blue add a delightful dose of colour to the home, and create a child-friendly vibe. If you have a small home, consider open shelving units that do not look too imposing or heavy for a more balanced look.
