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!

WE BELIEVE WORKING PARENTS MAKE GREAT PARENTS. A 2015 Harvard Business School study of girls with working moms in 24 countries across the globe found that they grew up to have more successful careers themselves. And another HBS study found in 2018 that kids with two working parents grew up to be *just* as happy as kids with a stay-at-home parent. In short: if working makes you happy, mama, do it! And let go of the #momguilt, because a happy and fulfilled mama = happy kids. Of course, having the flexibility to work near your kids - and for them to see you on the job - has benefits for everybody; whether you're nursing your baby or telling each other about your mornings, we're grateful for a family-friendly co-working space like @trehausco. - Kate McFarlane, Senior Editor⠀

WE BELIEVE IN TEACHING TEAMWORK. Our world and our future are highly unpredictable. Technology is advancing so rapidly that we don't know what our world will look like in ten years let alone 20 years. Our children will also face dramatic environmental and political changes. So how do we prepare them for such an unpredictable future? #Teamwork. Learning to work as part of a team helps develop many social skills such as communication, empathy, patience, tolerance and collaboration. These are the skills that our children will need more than any others. - Emilie De Cannart, Managing Director, Sassy Media Group⠀

Have you caught your self yelling at your children? We have all been guilty of this and it has not been our finest moment. Would you like to learn how to be a calm and collected parent? This long weekend would be a good time to practice 😀 Our #linkinbio has the details from @respectfulmom.
