Want to up your home’s style quotient but don’t have the budget for a decorator? Here are five easy design tricks to spice up your home, mama!

Trends come and go, but there are always some foolproof and easy ways to add a unique and personal touch to your home. A colourful accessory, luxurious fabrics or a unique sculpture can all make your home a point of conversation. And with Singapore’s multicultural society, one can easily take inspirations from around the world. Here are five unique products from right here in Singapore that can give your home a special touch, courtesy of the design experts at dKreator!

Colourful Poufs

Accessories like throw pillows or poufs allow you to play with colours that can create fun and excitement, and reflect your personality in a room. These knitted poufs are also a great alternative for flexible and movable seating. Not only are they sturdy & comfortable, they don’t take up too much space or budget and are a great option for family room or kids’ room.

Bring Nature into Your Home

While a potted plant in a corner or a trailing plant works well, a unique accent piece that takes inspiration from nature makes for an exquisite touch. For instance this bronze and wood piece,“36 Birds in a Table” includes 33 birds as the stand and 3 birds perched on the table top. You’ve got a conversation piece and fascinating bit of nature rolled into one!

Refreshed Furniture Fabrics

Over time (and particularly with kids using your sofa as a diving board!), even the sturdiest of sofas can get worn out. There’s nothing easier than a change in fabric to revitalise your old sofa to showcase a new look for your living room. This new collection of wallpapers and textiles for interiors are imported from London and combine detailed patterns and vivid colours, which can be used for furniture, walls and cushions to give a completely new look.

Food-Inspired Tableware

A beautifully plated meal, a well set table and sparkling glasses can whet your appetite as much as the food itself. For instance, these quirky mushroom-like dishes could hold salt, pepper or butter while adding that extra something to your dinner table. The organic form of the clay work blends with its function as a carrier of food allowing the diners to truly experience nature.

A Flavour of Asia

When you are in Singapore, it’s hard not to be influenced by the East Asian deco style. Traditional Chinese decor is usually opulent with reds, gold, jade and purple tones that can make your home seem luxurious and grand. For instance, a Chinese medicine cabinet dressed up with a lantern, teapot and knick knacks can be a focal point of your room and get a conversation started.

For such a tiny place Singapore is bursting with interesting design spaces and home decor spots. Happy hunting, mamas!

The #Lifebeyondgrades campaign aims to break the taboo of discussing PSLE scores to stop kids from thinking those results will define who they are or will
become. Here’s Sassy Mama co-founder @mamayeowdevito: “It might come as a surprise, but I just do not remember my PSLE results! I was always non-academic, and only just scraped through PSLE to get into secondary school at St Theresa’s Convent. I recall studying really hard, having lots of late nights, memorising, yet not doing too well. That period of my life is a blur now; maybe I chose to block it out. I knew in secondary school I didn’t want to go to JC and instead researched polytechnic courses for business and marketing. 
I found my first job as a marketing communications assistant at Singapore Marriott Hotel even before my last paper at Nanyang Polytechnic. I was so excited about the job that the studying and results of my diploma didn’t matter. 
I moved onto Raffles Hotel, then Pan Pacific Hotel and very quickly rose to head marketing roles. There was so much pressure to perform but I always had amazing bosses and mentors watching over me, believing in what I did. I worked 25 hours a day but enjoyed every minute. This type of education - LIFE’s lessons, successes and failures - rather than academic lessons - have been the best education for me.
I am successful in my own right now – both in business and with my beautiful family for which I am grateful. I am so lucky to have found what I love to do and am still loving every minute of it!
I don’t remember my PSLE results but whatever they were, I didn’t let them define me. We should not let numbers define our lives; ultimately it’s much more important to help our children develop a strong character, and encourage them to pursue their personal passions. Because neither failure NOR success can be truly quantified.
A little ball of fluff just landed on your Wednesday!
