A Simple ways to upgrade my quality life in Singapore.

Jumpby2, 3 min read

Hi guys, recently I just move into my new room. Not to mentioned on how stressful being a working adult in Singapore, I think i deserve a good quality lifestyle by giving myself a warm & cozy space to stay alone. So, I am planning to do a room makeover for a new life. Let's just call it the transformation of quality life.

As you guys can see, this is the tiny space for my next few years . It is about 4 -5m2 , with a single size bed, fan, big wardrobe, desk and chair. There is a big window without curtain and a small window ( Old fashioned Hdb design). Simple yet still challenging as i don't want to make effort for a big renovation works such as hacking or drilling the wall. First, I decided to use black, pink, gold colors to match my current furniture provided. So, you guys ready? ^^

The desk and chair are in a quite good condition so I just leave them alone. However, they look quite empty.

So here the decor I bought for my desk. A pink marble tray with cute pink flamingo plate to place my accessories, a frame which can place a note paper or reminder and a small vase attached ( so i can place fresh or dried flower for my room... sometimes^^), also a white marble look paper roll holder to avoid the dusk attached to my paper roll ( I got sensitive nose so... yeah, can't skip the hygiene part), and a rose gold book frame to keep my books(Not to mentioned how much i love to read!). I also bought a pink cushion for my chair ( It is just nice to fit my chair as the cushion size can be customized). The candle holder is for me to put some nice scene candle light. It is so windy. My room is full of vanilla & coconut fresh smell right now. In this tiny room, i will skip too many fancy decor items/furniture but ensure they can be used and is a great art piece for me too. Eventually, i just want it be cozy in days that i never wish to step out from my room especially in this hot weather country.

As a typical narcissist, I would love to have a full height mirror for myself, this mirror just nice to match my room theme, especially the black cornice on top. Besides, it is not just a mirror but also with a track for me to hang my jackets or cardigans. With the price i purchased, it is definitely worth it. I place the mirror between my new bought pink dustbin and pink curtain to archive the color balance and harmony.

Remember I mentioned the small window. Somehow , it not really presentable with a somehow scenery picture and it does make me feel insecure. Sorry for my paranoid delusions, so I bought a non transparent film to cover up the window. The transparent film is just nice to let the sunlight bean comes through my room to wake me up in the morning. Just beside the wardrobe, I relocated the bed & bed-stand close to it. Here my own hand crafted canvas art piece on the bed-stand.

Now, come to my single bed. I spent a little for a new bed sheet instead of use my old previous cause, my previous bed sheet is Disney Princess! It is totally not a good match! LOL. I quite hesitate between black or pink , so here we go, i chose the pink bed sheet. Same goes to my curtain color, i chose pinkish night curtain + white sheer curtain, to create a soft tone color and avoid too pinkish. One of the reason i love IKEA, because even if you have zero experience to install furniture, you still able to install yourself with detail booklet and different language instruction.

Last but not least. For a quality life, I have to get myself a good sleeping quality with this weighted blanket (Therapy TOOL to reduce anxiety & insomnia). This weighted blanket with pink tencel as cover enhance the cozy level for my room especially the cooling rainy days with a hot black coffee and perhaps some macaroons? Such indulgence i cant help to wish to end this writing and jump back to my bed now.

Attached the budget lists for my room. Thanks for the reading. ^^
