Not sure where to shop for decorations for your home for Christmas? We’ve got just the list for you!
Being in a tropical climate, we can’t exactly rely on the weather to prompt us to begin our festive end-of-year preparations. But one thing we can rely on? The streets in town that are lined with festival lights, elaborate displays outside the shopping malls and stores brimming with Christmas decor. It’s only right that we reflect the holiday mood in our homes, so it’s time to get decorating, girls! Here are the some of the hot spots you should be hitting up to stock on all your holiday decor essentials.
If their deliciously dazzling displays don’t entice you enough to visit their quaint shopfront, we don’t know what else will! You’ll find plenty of one-of-a-kind holiday trinkets sourced from all over the US, Australia and Europe to adorn your home with here at Bungalow 55. Their minimalist colour palettes and glitzy layouts are also easy on the eyes, giving you plenty of ideas on the decorating front.

The motherland of home furnishings and decor is an obvious choice.
