Swap rigid lines for curves to create a feminine vibe. Think round or arched mirrors, wavy patterns, paintings or furniture with soft, smooth edges.
Arrange your own accessories, jewellery or beauty products in ornamental vases on shelves or side tables.
Just one furniture in a neutral-toned room will enhance the space without overpowering it. Try adding a decor item in soft pink for a touch of femininity.
In space-constrained living areas, a shelving unit can help to maximise available vertical space. If there are tight corners and cramped spaces at home, a modular series, where you can add on or remove extra shelves as and when you need, would help to make the most of your space more efficiently. Dynan shelf unit, $49.90, from IKEA.
TURN UP THE HEAT
If you are looking to cut down your electricity bill, consider switching up your water heater to the Ariston Thermo’s AURES Instant Water Heater. Equipped with Constant Temperature (CT) technology, it is the first water heater in Singapore to be officially certified by PSB Singapore to be energy saving. You can expect to save at least 16.4 per cent with the heater’s lower energy consumption. From $199 onwards.
