With multiple lucky stars shining on you this year, 2017 sees those born in the year of Dragon enjoying immense luck in all aspects of life. But in order to take maximum advantage of the opportunities you will have place water fountains or have your walls in white or cream color in the North and Southeast direction to dispel negativity and welcome positivism. Simply placing a Brink & Campman rug in your living room not only bring you luck but leave your guests awe with your new minimalist look.

Warm orange colors for the bedroom create harmony and unity for the family. Using fabrics from Casadeco for your cushions to spice up your living room.

Snake

The Rooster increases your professional ambition. You will aim high, supported by your impressive work capacity. You will succeed in everything you do. Blush pink color can enhance your wealth luck. Adding some curtain sheers in shades of pink can help to block some sunlight and add some feminine touch to the bedroom.

You can display peacock feathers or the Flying Horse Ornament in the North East position of your residence to help you attain Heaven and Earth blessings. Purple grey color adds sophistication to your home while attracting friends whom will help you in need. Why not use laminated flooring from geff to your advantage?

Luck is going to be by your side at your work place. Lush green plants or green walls in the South West direction of your residence can bring in more opportunities in your career. Opportunities abroad will also bring you great returns. How about adding a feature wall with green foliage in your living space that not only open up new opportunities but also bring the nature indoor.

The beginning of the year is going to be like a second honey moon for couples. Pink and purple colors are advantageous for you; we recommend these colors for your home decoration items or walls. One way to spruce up your living room is to use fabric from Casadeco to create a sofa that is uniquely yours.

Goat

Pantone the global leading Colour specialist shared GREENERY is the new kid on the block. Green evokes peace, harmony and tranquility.  It gives one a sense of renewal and healing.

Home and business owners are more daring to explore natural finishes for their living space surfaces.  For example, dressing up  a feature wall with wallcoverings that have textures of marble like and wood grained.  The natural finishes range from planked walls, concrete blocks to wood paneling, it’s a dramatic way of “fooling The Eye”.

Trend #3: Geometric

Consistent block patterns and designs for the walls, curtains, carpet rugs and flooring bring order into our homes with simple clean patterns. Geometrics have been around for ages and never fails to excite home owners with modern rendition of colors and shapes .  For the adventurous homeowners, they 2 different bold patterns and colors to express themselves.  We see many using Wallcovering with such patterns for small spaces such as walk in wardrobes, ceilings, and entertainment room.

The most popular blooming plants traditionally used during this period are: branches of plum blossoms, orchids, peonies, and peach blossoms. Flowers tend to wither after a few days. Why not enjoy the beauty of blooming flowers all year round? Dutch Masters wallcovering from BN contains motifs of larger than life floral that will bring out the mood of spring.

“Often, customers of interior furnishing firm Goodrich Global want the design and estimated cost of doing up their place to be ready the next day. However, there were never enough site supervisors to take the measurements of each place and get the quotations out to customers all in a day.”  Shared by Mr Chan Chong Beng, Chairman and Co-Founder of Goodrich Global with The Straits Time  , Nov 29, 2016. 

 

To overcome these manpower constraints, Mr Chan, who is also Chairman of the Workforce Advancement Federation, worked alongside with technology start-up Aviation Virtual to develop a 3D Scan Visualiser.  This software is capable of reducing on-site man hours from 4 hours to 1 ½ hours. Therefore, reducing the manpower hours needed by 62% .  

The software paired off with the HTC VIVE, will help to produce  a virtual reality view of the interiors and allows the users to undertake measurement and floor plan designs quickly, easily, and with greater accuracy than using traditional methods. It is designed to reduce the challenges and the need to hire more site supervisors, quantity surveyors, and even 3D graphics Developers for any one project.

This initiative is amongst many other improvements and programs that Goodrich Global have implemented.Goodrich’s effort to increase productivity and continuous improvement to serve our customers better .

This innovative software solution and device were both launched at the Singapore Workforce Advancement Federation’s (WAF’s)annual Lean Enterprise Development Forum on November 28, 2016.  Mr Teo Ser Luck,  Minister Of State for Manpower, was the Guest of Honor and said in his speech to about 200 SME bosses at the event that Collaboration is critical factor for SMEs to sustain their business especially in this economic slowdown.   

Mr. Benny Lim, Group CEO of Goodrich Global alongside with 24 other companies (early adopters) of this technology were presented a plaque for the recognition of their efforts to adopt this initiative   Each of the SMEs invested only  SG$4,500 each for this 3D Scan Visualiser after subsidies from Spring Singapore.
