Winter Home

Brrrr, its getting colder and colder. I'm looking forward to December 22, when the days will start getting longer again. Its quite hard motivating myself to exercise now because all I want to do when I get home from work is eat dinner and go to my bed and snuggle up with hubby!

I'm also looking forward to Christmas! I was just thinking how nice it would be to spend Christmas in a log home like this with my whole family by my side! I'm sure they would enjoy being inside this house sitting around the fireplace. This home below looks so inviting with all the lights inside, I can even see part of their Christmas tree. My co-workers ask me whose house this is when they see this picture. I jokingly tell them, "mine". They ask, "really, where is this", and my reply is "in my dreams". Well, we can dream, can't we? Have a good weekend everyone!

What a great makeover!!!

HGTV : Episode 201- Island-Style Master Bedroom

This is a must see episode of HGTV's Rate My Space, see episode here.

Before & After

I'm sorry about this first picture coming out twice. I don't know how to remove it. I tried, but it deleted the next 2 pictures below, so I just decided to keep it! Oh well, better to see good things twice right!? Hope you enjoy the bedroom / cabana makeover, I sure did!!!

Inspiration for picture with the armoir : I'm sure that most of you are familiar with this picture if you are frequent visitors of blogs. This is from Cindy's home, which you can see more of in "My Romantic Home"

Happy Weekend!

Have a nice and peaceful weekend everyone!

Shabby Chic Dresser, Hutch and Desk

I had this really nice Dresser, Hutch and Desk set which has so much character. This would really look good in a shabby chic bedroom, or even perhaps in a shabby chic kitchen depending on the need of the owner. Unfortunately we need more space! FORTUNATELY I was able to find a new home for it when someone offered to buy it from me! =)

Doesn't this look much better?!

I had an old dresser and mirror that didn't go well with my shabby chic furniture, so I decided to do a weekend project on it. I just painted it white with some country French blue accents.

Living Room Layout Reference

This looks like a good inspiration for the layout of our living room although it will be decorated differently because we have an Asian style (Thai- Bali Style) living room.

Time to fix up our closet!

I need more closet space! What girl doesn't? I was trying to look for closet make-overs through the web, and what caught my attention were the closets of these celebrities/ style icons! The closets are almost as impressive as the clothes they wear!

Mid-Century Modern Chic
After purchasing a tiny studio apartment in downtown Long Beach, California, Marnie Dorf committed to creating a well-designed space with practical function. The highlight of her studio is her boutique-themed, walk-in closet. Originally designed to fit a Murphy bed and built-in dresser, she decided that sleeping in the cramped space wasn't her style. The closet is now completely dedicated to voguish storage.

Chic Boutique
Dorf has made the closet feel like an additional room by painting the walls a Tiffany blue and installing a crystal chandelier that can be seen from the living room through a transom glass window. By keeping her belongings neatly tucked away in a modern closet system, she has been able to reduce clutter and streamline her 398-square-foot studio space.
