Sometimes, change is good, as the saying goes. That’s exactly how Rina Mia plunged into interior design and interior styling in early 2020 when the COVID-19 period started. She shares that she started a marketing & creative agency 12 years, but her new interior design and styling journey has been super fulfilling and wonderful so far. “I have been learning so much from all the wonderful opportunities I have been given the chance to work on.” Aside from being a cat mom, she’s also an outdoorsy gal who loves activities like rock climbing, snowboarding, trekking, wakeboarding or wake surfing, etc.
Rina Mia’s home perfectly reflects her animated and enthusiastic personality. A chic and comfortable Singapore apartment with loads of luscious bohemian farmhouse punch and pizzazz. Much of the successful decoration of her cozy and elegant home relied on a perfect balance of equally quirky décor and a gorgeous color palette, rugs, and textiles.
Let’s not miss the organized and refined ambiance, which makes her space look classy and stylish. One of the key elements of Rina Mia’s home is replacing outdated furnishings with modern luxe furniture pieces. It instantly brings a subtle contemporary flair into her home. Rattan and wicker pieces create fun boho vibes. Take a peek at Rina Mia’s bohemian farmhouse and modern luxe apartment, which is (to be honest) one of our faves!
Tell us something about your home
I chose this apartment because it’s near a park connector next to a river. It’s not near the downtown area, which means coming home to a quiet, serene space I could really relax in at the end of the day.
Describe your interior style
Modern Luxe meets Bohemian Farmhouse.
What is your favorite part of your home and why?
Oh, I can’t really decide. It used to be the living room because it’s the first room you see when you enter, and it’s really important to me that it’s relaxing & inviting. Lately, it’s my lounge room as I have started revamping it in 2020 during the COVID season. Selling the old furnishings and redecorating it into a work-from-home + lounge room. It’s got all the elements & colors I like — plants, lots of earth tones, books, and soft textiles.
What is your least favorite part of your home and why?
Perhaps the laundry area, as I didn’t want to tear down the entire kitchen and remodel to save costs. The layout isn’t very conducive, and it makes doing laundry a bit inconvenient.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Loads! Recently Studio Mcgee, Apartment Therapy, and of course, Omysa!
