Updating your bedroom

by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·  

Your bedroom is arguably one of the places we spend most of our time in. It should be a place of sanctuary, somewhere to put our minds at ease when we go to sleep each night. It makes sense to update our bedroom to what makes us happiest, and make additions to the room that resonates with us and our personality, especially if you’re staying with others, the bedroom is the one place in the house that isn’t a shared space, but a personal one.

Your bedroom should be a cosy environment for you to nestle in after a long day, and it should evoke a sense of peace and stability for you. If you’ve decided to upgrade your room, you can start by identifying what are the things you want to achieve, what are things you need or can do without, and understand the vibe of the room – everyone is different and have their own unique taste, so there’s no one “correct” or one way to do it.

Whether you’re in love with a chic and modern room, or are looking to have a more tropical Balinese feel to your space, you can pay later with Atome and split your bill into three. If you’re changing out your bed frame, it’s important to invest in good quality pieces, which can be relatively more expensive. When you use Atome to pay, the bill gets broken into three equal parts, and is paid over three months with 0% interest. It’s a great way to make things more affordable while allowing you to buy the things you love today.

Add a burst of colour to the bedroom with bedsheets. The best thing about dressing up your bed is that you can constantly switch and introduce new colours to your room, instantly brightening up the space. Bedding Affairs offers a wide range of colours and soft, durable sheets that are guaranteed to help you fall asleep soundly. Bedsheets freshen up the space and can speak volumes of your personal style.

Bedside tables are a staple in every bedroom. It’s important to pick a table that suits your needs. If you love reading books, pick one that allows you to store your favourite reads, and if you like a little privacy and hate clutter, choose one with a drawer to help you store your personal items.

It’s challenging to decorate the bedroom when there’s limited space. But don’t let that hold you back, look for pieces that can double up as storage units such as this bed frame. There are three drawers on the side, and a rack at the foot of the bed that’s perfect for all your books and magazines. It also features a ledge at the headboard that can hold your alarm clock. Plus, wooden bedframes are a timeless addition to the room – there’s something charming about wooden furniture.

Indulge in your daily beauty ritual with this wooden dressing table. You can style up your dressing table with your favourite perfume bottles, and skin care products. This dressing table is a beautiful piece to add to your room with its contrasting shapes.

Finally, how about reliving those good old Bali days and retreat into your bedroom with this magnificent headboard which you can get from Kulture Home Decor. Add a Balinese touch to your room with this intricately hand carved headboard. The frame is made of fiber wood, which is a great alternative to raw wood, and is durable and sustainable. The attention to detail on this piece will have you marvelling at its beauty for ages.

Jazzing up your home

by Starry   ·  3 years ago   ·  

There’s nothing like spending 9 hours in your living room to sudden inspire you to decorate or begin on an ultimate Marie Kondo-ing of your house. With all the time that we’re spending at home, most of us are now feeling the urge to spice up our space, and breathe new life into the house.

For those of us who have been furniture shopping before, we know that it’s not the most wallet-friendly thing, and while we may be tempted to head online and buy cheaper alternatives, quality furniture will prove to be a sound investment over time, as they tend to be more comfortable, since they’re made from quality materials, and would not have to replaced, and if it’s maintained properly, it can last a lifetime!

For a better and smarter way to shop, use Atome to split your bill into three interest-free instalments. It’s a hassle-free and secure way of paying, and it allows you to enjoy the things you love today.

Make the space as cosy and comfortable as possible, with soft pillows, and a colour scheme that suits your personality. Take your pick on Addin’s site, they offer beautiful pieces that will match your style. This classic Hernold sofa has elegant curves, tufted button and gold-finished legs. It’s perfect for lounging around with your family and friends (when we’re allowed to) – for now, curl up with a good book or movie after a long day.

Elevate everyday meals with beautiful tableware from Table Matters. Every collection incorporates unique design that is inspired by nature, and the materials used for each dinnerware is finely sourced and strictly tested for toughness, durability and integrity. This Peranakan-themed ceramics is a grand display of culture, and exhibits a mix of bright hues and exhilarating patterns.

One of the best ways to jazz up your home to declutter, because you might find gems that you already own. If your house is messy and cluttered, it would be difficult to find what you need, when you need it. Storage boxes are a great way to keep all your possessions and maintain a clean looking space, while looking stylish and smart. Reorganise all your items into storage boxes, and tuck them away neatly into a space. Houze offers a wide range of storage boxes, plus some of them comes with wheels, so it’s easier to move them around the house.

Add a pop of colour to your room with this beautiful lattice door cabinet in Midnight Blue. This antique has two removable shelves within in it, great for storing personal items. We love antiques, and each piece always has a story to tell. It’s a great contracting piece in a room, and can add energy and personality to your home. Plus, antiques are a great investment as they retain or increase in value over time.

Anchor your living room a hint of black and elevate the space with this beautiful oval coffee table finished with a gold trim. Marble designs are endlessly classy and elegant. A coffee table is a versatile decor piece that holds together the room and can end up being the focal point of the space.

It’s always good to change your bedsheets, and changing your sheets is one of the easiest ways to jazz up your room without seemingly doing much. This set from Bedding Affairs is soft and cosy, and uses environmentally responsible materials that offers you long-lasting natural comfort. It has an exquisite silky hand feel and natural sheen, and it leaves your body feeling cool and dry, perfect for a good night’s sleep.

Stay inspired while working from home

by Starry   ·  3 years ago   ·  

It’s day 32 of Circuit Breaker (right?), and if you’ve forgotten what public transportation is like during peak hours or even the simple joy of having a colleague talk about the latest celeb gossip while we try to rush out a report, we’re not here to remind you. Staying home means we’re picking up or strengthening different skills that we usually won’t have time to do so and we’re making the best of the situation the way we know how. We’ve picked up new skills, worked out more (can everyone do a handstand now??), sharpened our skills in the kitchen (lowkey expecting a pantry stuffed with banana bread when we head back to the office), and (maybe) caught up on all the shows on Netflix.

While working from home definitely has it’s benefits, it does have its drawbacks. If you’re suffering from a creative block while at home and are looking for ways to stay inspired, we’ve rounded up some creative and innovative products that can motivate you to think outside the box to create solutions.

We The People: SwitchBot – Retrofit All Devices For IoT

This innovative gadget from SwitchBot is an all-in-1 smart automated device (controlled by your smartphone) that allows you to control electronics in your house. If you’ve always wanted a smart home but didn’t know where to start – this is perfect for you. It fits all switches, so you don’t have to make any big steps to accommodate this new machine! Filling your house with great products that help makes life easier reminds you to constantly push yourself to achieve creative solutions for everyday problems.

We The People: Sleep Magic – Smart Anti-Snoring Eye Mask

Sleep is essential for so many reasons – it allows us to recover and recharge. If you’re feeling extra unmotivated and uninspired, it might be time to get some quality sleep. But if you’re a light sleeper, and are in bed next to someone who has an unfortunate snoring problem, or if you’re the one that’s snoring, we’ve got the solution for you. This sleep mask from Sleep Magic is unlike most traditional anti-soring devices. The innovative mask is able to detect snoring by using its advanced bone conduction and sound recognition technology. It has 36 different levels of carefully calculate vibrations, which it identifies according to the intensity and severity of your snoring. After picking the most suitable level, it’ll send a signal to your brain to relax your throat muscles and open up your airways. The best part is that it happens while you’re asleep, so it does not interfere with your sleep at all.

We The People: MOFT X – Invisible and Foldwaway Stand for Phone/Tablet

The MOFT X is basically an invisible foldaway stand for your phone, tablet and laptop. We know, there’s so many options out there but we honestly love this creative solution for everyday problems. The MOFT X can stand almost vertically, so you can prop your phone up while working and be in tune with any updates or calls. It can also laid down on it’s side, which is perfect for movies, or following YouTube cooking tutorials while in the kitchen. The thing that stood out was that it’s paper-thin (it’s only 5mm!!) so it’s definitely not bulky, and it can hold up to three cards (it comes with RFID protection so you can be assured that your cards are safe). If you’re clumsy, you can also use it as a phone grip.

Natural Living Products: Bye Bye Headache

Sometimes when we lose inspiration, we tend to beat ourselves up mentally, draining even more of our creativity and even causing a headache. Curio Elixier’s No24 Bye Bye Headache helps you to sooth you mind and soul. Made with essential oils, practitioners believe that inhaling these aromas can relieve your headache, stress and improve your focus. Take a step back and slow down, it’s vital to have some time alone to detox and re-energise.

The Techanic: Razer Cynosa Chroma Multi-colour Gaming Keyboard

From time to time, we just need a change of environment to help with our unimaginative episodes. Some roadblocks in our creative process can stem from being in a dull environment. Our surroundings play a crucial role in helping us remain inspired and motivated. Small changes like lighting a candle, or brightening up your room with a colourful mug can help jumpstart your mind. If you’re looking for something functional too, you can check out this multi-colour keyboard that will sure keep you inspired! It has a spill-resistant design and you can play around with the colours – imagine all the different ways you can customise your computer!

The Techanic: MSI Optix Mag241C 24″ Monitor

If you’re missing your big screen at the office, you’re not alone. The benefits of having a large monitor are endless. It’s easier on the eyes as you no longer have to strain to see what’s on the screen, and it can also increase productivity, as some tasks are just completed faster when done on a larger screen. It never hurts to have two screens to help you during your work, where you can look up creative ideas on the large to inspire you.

Looking at innovative products can help you get those creative juices flowing. If you’re feeling stuck in a rut, pause and step away from work for a minute. It’s always helpful to spend some time reading and researching ideas outside of your own, which might trigger a brillant idea of your own.

If you’re intrigued by any of the above products, you can get them now and pay later with Atome to split the bill into three 0% interest monthly instalments. Download the app today and explore the various stores.

Buy now and pay later with Atome

Atome (/äə tō mĭ/): “Available to me, access to more”

Let’s kick things off with what Atome is, and how it’s going to revolutionise the way you make payments and make life so much better (we’re not kidding). Atome is a paylater application that allows you to own the things you love right now, and make interest-free instalments later. Get ready to kiss goodbye to worrying or stressing about the changes you would have to make to afford something you love.

With Atome, you can now purchase the things you love, do the things you want to do, all without letting your finances control you. I know, I know, it sounds too good to be true, but Atome offers the financial freedom for you to go out and live your best life. To put it simply, it’s time to treat yourself!!

But how does it work exactly? Welllll, with Atome, our motto is “Love it. Own it. Pay later.’ and it’s exactly how it sounds. No interest, no hidden terms and conditions, nothing to come back and bite you. All you need to do is sign up for an account using either your credit or debit card, and then shop with our merchant partners and scan their unique QR code when paying (only a third of the price then!). It’s a simple, contactless payment process when checking out.

The bill is split into three equal payments, with the first one done there and then, the subsequent instalment payments will be spread over the next two months. All with zero interest. Yes you read that right – Zero. Interest. No hidden cost and no processing fee either, we promise.

Whether you’re re-doing your house and eyeing that stunning mother-of-pearl furniture and homeware from Hacienda Blue, getting your nails done, picking up a new skill like painting or learning martial arts, Atome is here for you and all your dreams.

Now is the time to add to cart (responsibly) and get that pair of shoes you’ve been eyeing for the longest time, or sign up for that painting workshop you said you would since January (New Year’s resolution anyone?) No one’s life is meticulously planned to every last detail, things happen, something impulses get the best of us when we’re eyeing a luxe bag or are increasingly pressured to get a gym membership (because we’re not getting any younger, and health is wealth, right??)

I think that we can all agree that there are very few things that beat the joy of being able to get the things you want, without having to worry about it. Enjoy life’s little luxuries, with no catch. We can honestly go on forever about the benefits of using Atome, but to know for sure, you got to try it for yourself.

So go on, what are you waiting for?

Love it. Own it. Pay later
