Morning morning loves, how was the weekend? I’m feeling refreshed and recharged after a fun relaxing few days, finally over the train-ride-induced sleep deprivation… I’m raring to go on my current project and have made the call to focus on that 2000000% for the next few weeks, so these posts will get a smidge sporadic I’m afraid. Back to normal pronto I promise, as soon as I’m a qualified Interior Designer yeehaw.
Anyhoo so I’ve been meaning to write about the delectable PS Cafe in Tiong Bahru, here in Singapore, for a while now. It’s a faaabulous [small] chain of cafes/restaurants spread across the city, each with its own independent [and bonkers good] styling and menu, a must for weekend brunch whenever we have guests to stay. A few weeks ago we checked out the mini version in Tiong Bahru, a hip (can’t believe I just used the word hip) up and coming enclave near the centre of the city, that’s fast becoming our fave area for nosh and drinkies.
See? Incredible design, no?! Let’s take a closer look at those yummy black framed windows shall we…

It’s so eeny weeny there are only like four tables to eat in at, so you’d better get there early y’all. Or mega late actually, that’s how we scored one.
Anyway so these black framed windows and doors got me pondering the use of steel window frames in interior design. It’s a really simple way to add some serious drama to a space. Here are a few of my favourite inspo piccies, lemme know what you think!
A more economical option for peeps not wanting to rip out and replace all their windows, is to paint the regular window trim black like (I think) PS Cafe. You don’t achieve quite 100% of the effect but it’s pretty blooming good still:
