2. A home in Madrid designed for book lovers. A '50s era home was transformed into a contemporary pad by Studio Egue y Seta. It's called "A Live-in Tale" because it has features that cater to bookworms. Custom-made bookshelves are found in the living room and built-in bookcases are parked on the hallway. The home is so cosy (there's even a hammock!), it's a perfect retreat for those who want to indulge in a good read.


3. Bosch's eco-friendly appliances. Create a greener home by opting for hardworking appliances that do not harm the environment. Bosch offers three powerful products that are eco-friendly, too. Bosch HomeProfessional i-DOS Washer comes with an energy and water consumption indicator, thanks to the intelligent i-DOS automatic dosing system. Meanwhile, the Bosch Heat Pump Dryer is more energy-efficient compared to conventional dryers because it reuses hot waste air. The newly-launched dishwasher from Bosch aims to provide households in Singapore with the ultimate dishwasher that handles any load, while optimising its built-in eco-friendly offerings.

Bosch Heat Pump Dryer ($3,299)
