It’s the most wonderful time, of the year. For us living in Singapore, October to December marks three months of intense festivities, from Deepavali to Christmas and New Year. It might be around this time when people start thinking of a fresh start, be it for themselves or refreshing their homes to usher in the New Year.
When we say refreshing, we don’t always mean a massive makeover for your rooms. Instead, light-handed touches, such as adding a new sofa throw, changing up your sofa pillows, scenting the room, adding a new carpet, hanging up new artwork, adding some new table lights and plenty more options, can greatly improve your living space vibes. Not to mention, it’s a lot more cost-saving than doing a complete makeover!
And since it's frivolous decorations, not like essentials such as hotpots or bedsheets you want to sink into, you'll want to cart out on 11.11, just the year's largest shopping event across most popular shopping sites for the best value. I mean, we're seeing 70% off Hooga, 50% off Muji and more. Isn't it great to have choices during 11.11?
Here are some easy ways to get started.
Let there be art
Yes, a couple of artwork on the walls, ceramics pieces on display, and even new pillows and throws can greatly enhance your living room space. Before you do that though, remember to declutter things you don't need anymore so that the new decorations can really have the time of its day.

Add some greenery, and it doesn't even have to be alive!
No, we're not past our plant parents phase yet. There are enough articles espousing the benefits of sprucing up your space with greenery – heck, even Singapore was built on the premise of a "Green City", with trees dotting our tiny island. All that's left to do now is for you to bring this benefit into your home.
