May is a pretty special month for a number of reasons. It is a month of sunshine and pretty blooms after the misery of April showers. It’s also a month of public holidays, meaning most of us in the western hemisphere get at least one glorious long weekend to cherish. Last but not least, May is the anniversary birthday month of your favorite interior design inspiration hub, NONAGON.style. Break out the party hats and streamers – it’s time to celebrate!


This month we’re turning two years old! We’re anticipating a year ahead filled with impressive milestones, exciting developments and, of course, even more fabulous home tours. Here’s a look at how far we’ve come since our first ever story in 2016. Settle in as we count down our ten most popular stories of all time.

Back in 2016 we caught up with the Korean-New Zealander to learn more about his PaperBricks project. Even now, nearly two years on, we’re fascinated by the way he fashions recycled paper into sturdy bricks to be used for furniture design. It’s thrifty and forward thinking!

7. Living Rooms That Don’t All Point to the Television

Despite news that the living room as we know it has fallen out of favor with millennial households, we’re still staunch supporters of having some sort of living space in our homes where we can sit, relax and… well, live.

We do concede that living space doesn’t always have to revolve around a TV set. And given that our round up of TV-less living rooms stands proudly at number seven on our list, apparently you agree!

6. Taiwan Home Follows Feng Shui for Flow and Harmony

Throughout the past two years, we’ve featured a range of home tours sourced from all corners of the world. Norway, Costa Rica, Australia – you name it and we’ve (most probably) covered it. Though the world is our oyster, it’s interesting to note that some of our most popular home tours come from Taiwan.

5. Take a Sneak Peek Into This Stylist’s Apartment

One of our most memorable interviews has to be our home tour with interior stylist and lifestyle blogger, Marilen Faustino-Montenegro – she did bring us custard buns after all!

Walking into Marilen’s Hong Kong apartment was like coming home. It was warm, welcoming, and full of laughter and joy. We especially loved her calming blue bedroom, complete with candles for the ultimate relaxing hideaway.
