It’s Chinese New Year! We’re all on board for the CNY fun events for kids, eating up a storm and dressing up for the occasion (check out our picks of the coolest CNY outfits for kids.) For the uninitiated, Chinese New Year celebrations involve quite a bit of prep, and that means sprucing up the home and your wardrobe. We’re taking this as our cue to indulge in a bit of festive shopping, of course. Here are our red huat picks…
Local label Onlewo is winning us over with its beautiful textiles, wallpaper and homewares featuring prints inspired by Singapore scenes. This ‘Bountiful’ cushion (pictured top), with its mesmerising kueh design, ticks all the boxes for modern CNY style. We’ll love it all year round, of course. Linen-cotton with insert, 30cmx42cm, $48. Available at Onlewo’s studio at 129 Jalan Besar S208847.
We’re in love with these Tassel Ear Jackets by Wabi Sabi – they click into your regular stud earrings to add instant kapow to your outfit. Confession: we’ve already snapped up this exact same pair, and at $65 a pop we think they’re a steal.
Forget the paper pineapples: this is the CNY fruit that keeps on giving. Singapore Trading Post brass pineapple candy jars, from $150.
It’s no secret we love local ethical fashion label Matter Prints – you might have spotted the #mattermini range in our roundup of the coolest CNY outfits for kids. We’ll take these trousers for ourselves too – they are in auspicious red, after all. Sideswept Dhoti in Mobi Pomegranate, currently on sale at $223.
If the kids’ bedrooms need a little brightening with a print or two, we’ve been long swooning over the Chinese zodiac personalised picks from Sammy Eve. Pick up a Year of the Dog print from $65 – paw-fect for bubbas born this year!
If you don’t have a garden, then a terrarium makes a small and pretty alternative. The lovely CNY Blessing range at Terrarium SG is a must for any green-fingered wannabes! Snap one up quick though – they’re currently on sale at $48 each!
