In this Pristine Home feature is a minimalist japanese muji-like design by Jessica (@jwn_e on instagram). Read on to understand more about how she styles her home with Pristine.


Can you tell us abit more about yourselves? (e.g. what do you do for fun or to relax?)

    I work in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit as a staff nurse, a deeply challenging yet rewarding line of work. I am grateful for the opportunity to make a positive difference in someone else’s life in my daily job, be it caring for the premature or sick newborns to providing comfort to their family. 
    In my free time, I enjoy coffee and love to check out new cafes. It is relaxing and helps me to reset my mood. In addition seeing new interiors gives me lots of inspiration. On the contrary, I am also very much a home-stayer and simply love spending time with family and my cat.
    Describe to us your home decor style (and your home inspirations)
      My home decor style would be a minimalist Japanese design, characterised by clean lines, uncomplicated forms and simple finishes. 
      I generally go for a neutral colour scheme, and love the warm touch and colour of wood which gives me a cosy and relaxing mood. Many of my inspirations and furniture come from MUJI or Japanese interior Instagram accounts that I follow. 
      How did you come up with the inspirations before your renovation? How did you pitch to your ID your dream house? 
        I didn’t engage with any ID as I already had a clear picture of what I wanted and how to accomplish the look. I referenced MUJI articles and magazines, as well as interior based Instagram accounts for ideas on how to design my storage spaces combined with cat essential furniture for my little one.
        Which is your favourite area of your home and why?
          My favourite area is my bedroom as it is where I have put the most effort into designing and sourcing, from flooring to wall colour, venetian blinds and every furniture piece. 
          How do you style your home, and what do you look out for when you buy home decor pieces?
            Practicality and visuals are what I look out for most when getting new home decor, as my home concept is based on the idea of less is more. My home decor is basically my essentials that I use in my everyday life yet able to cater to my aesthetic outlook. 
            When it comes to scents, what are some of your favourites?
              One of my go-to scents would be vanilla, a sweet and delicate scent which gives me comfort and never fails to boost or relax my mind. Another favourite is fresh scents, such as blends of herbs and citrus.
              Tell us what you like about Pristine? (any particular scents or aesthetic)
                My favourite Pristine scent would be the English Country Inn that has a sweet floral scent that I always appreciate. I especially love how their Reed Diffusers have a long lasting scent even after putting them out for weeks, unlike some other brands which I have tried. 
                Another of my favourite Reed Diffuser, Japanese Ryokan, is placed on my shelf storage. I always manage to get a whiff of the soft scent whenever I pass by.
                Tell us how you use Pristine (e.g. which scents/products are better for which rooms)
                  I do not have a specific preference as to which rooms should have a certain type of smell. I have a few favourites and simply decide as and when. 
                  I use the room spray sometimes after my cat uses her toilet or when I simply want a nice aroma.
                  The Reed diffusers are placed in the toilet and storage shelvings.
                  And the aroma concentrates are usually used when I am hosting friends or family at my place.
