  1. Hello YMTO, congrats on ur new home...looks lovely!!

    May I know what brand of fan did you get? Isit Cresta? Also can share the place u bought ur track lightings a d blinds? How much huh?

    Thanks! :)

    Hi EMinlove, thank you for your kind words. Fan's from Crestar (from Chan Huat, Balestier). Track lights from Philips Lightings. Blinds from Fabulous curtains (also located along Balestier) at about 1.2k (living room + 3 bedrooms). Hope that helps! :D

  2. what type of kitchen top are you using? Met up with K today.. Mentioned that I want a quartz top and he highly recommended Caesarstone to me but I understand that it's costly though.. :dunno:

    Hi AnW, I'm not sure what's the exact material for the top, solid top in general. We used granite for our toilet though. Perhaps you can show K my house photo and he should be able to tell you :)

  3. hello may i know where did you get the coffee table and how much does it costs?

    And also how much is your TV console too? Thanks in advance!! :D

    - mrs merry

    Hi mrs merry! We got our coffee table from Galanga, they had a few items that were made of this similar screed material. Cost $399 if I remb correctly but had to pay additional $50 for delivery (or you can pick up on your own but its really heavy and have to fix on your own too).

    Console's from Helping hands located at Kovan (you can google their address!). They sell all sort of teak furniture made by ex-convicts. We paid abt $700 for it. Very value for money and meaningful purchase ! :)

  4. Hi YTMO, I've got my t-blog set up, and will be posting pics soon. Stay tuned ya.

    Btw and I'm no longer surprised, we are also using Design Closet for our wiw! Did you go with Luke? His service has been pretty good thus far.

    We are also getting the ICOL fan from Chan Huat :good: - love the matte look of it, and apparently it generates quite a bit of air because of the design of its blades. Do you find this to be the case with your fan?

    We went with Design closet as I had 2 friends who used them as well. And yes, we were serviced by Luke but do book your installations with them early as we had to wait 2 weeks for ours after confirmation of the drawings. The installations were done by 2 Bangladesh workers in which 1 of them can speak mandarin lol!

  5. Thinking about it, I don't even think they showed us the dark one - perhaps it was our turn for it to be out of stock =p

    Yours floors are looking good and I hope it's the same for us in that lighter shade.

    Share the pics when it's up! We were worried initially too but it turned out alright! :)

    Hi YTMO,

    is K a contractor or from ID firm? Mind to share quotations with me, hope to receive pm from you, thanks in advance!

    Hi secretgarden, K (Kevin) is a contractor. You can contact him at 90222321. Won't be sharing the quote since different requirements and materials used will result in a different quote, but we spent approx. 30k with K (excluding our WIW closet).

  6. Nice reno! I think the concept of our house is eerily similar to yours, but we are not using Mr K (he's too busy).

    I suspect we got the same cement screed looking tiles from Soon Bee Huat, but ours is probably the lighter shade.

    Will be coming up with our reno t-blog real soon so stay tuned.

    Oh, really? Initially we were undecided with the light or dark version but the light ones were out of stock and had to wait for a month, hence we went with the dark ones in the end. Thank god they turned out pretty well. Looking fwd to your T-blog :)

    nice & warm feel!

    Thank you!

  7. Thanks babe! I told my hubby how much i love your wood blinds! :) Beautiful house!

    No problem, I love the blinds too! It gives a very cosy ambience yet you can still allow for some sun rays to come in! :)

    Hi YTMO,

    mosaic grey.....yeah...now that you've told...i think i know why its 50 shades....lots of them!

    thanks heaps! :good:

    i stumbled upon a paint company website...can mix & match the colors..to give an idea what the space looks like..


    Was about to ask abt the blinds..but verre got to u anyway. :sport-smiley-018:

    oh well...more ideas for my new home. :thumbs up:


    The mosaic grey is really nice, not too dark yet still visibly grey! haha. Glad to be of help anyways!

    hi, can u pm me your contractor's contact? thanks~

    Hi, you can contact my contractor - Kevin at 90222321.

  8. Hi YTMO,

    the grey wall, in your study room, what shade of grey is that?

    seriously, no pun intended. (50 shades of grey)

    i kinda like the cool grey look..just dun want too dark.

    Hi ANDiLaLaLa (you have a really long nick hehe), it's called mosaic grey from Dulux paint (sorry,can't remb the color code).

    Love your blind. :wub: But looking at the cost. :unsure:

    $1200+ is for blinds for the living room + 3 bedrooms. In fact we checked with another vendor and was quoted even higher, hence we decided with Fabulous curtains (higher cost might be also due to the fact that we chose real wood for the blind panels for the living room as laminated wood might warp after long hours in the sun).

    Hi YTMO,

    Can you PM me the cost of the wooden blinds? Thanks.

    Hi verre, we spent $1200+ for the pure wood blinds in the living room + roller fabric blinds for the 3 bedrooms.

  9. May I know which cement screed tiles you used ?

    Hi, we got the tiles at Soon Bee huat. Can't remember the exact quote number though. But there's 2 colors (we took the darker version).

    Hi YTMO, may I know where you get your dining set and the price pls?

    Hi, it's from Comfort design (showroom at paya lebar). The table and bench cost abt $900 (was on discount, not sure if they still have that price).

  10. Can share the contact for your blinds? :)

    You can contact Tom, 9610 0379 or visit their showroom at Balestier. They will come to your place to do measurements and give you an exact quote.

    very nicely put together! =)

    i love the dining area..we also got our mirror from ikea initially to save some money, but it started warping after a few months..had Mr K to customize another one after one year.. ;)

    Thank you! Your house was one of our references for reno, we used the same wood tiles for our bedrooms! We might be getting K to customize a mirror for our WIW room but I think we need to be put on waiting list! haha

  11. Very pretty... :)

    Thank you!

    I like it tiles... They look very much like cement screed... Are they expensive to lay?

    We chose the china made ones, hence they are about $3 psf price range, not expensive!

    Very nice! Waiting to see pictures of the rest of your house :)

    Thank you! We didn't do much for the rooms except for the walk-in closet.

    May I know where to get the blinds? They look gorgeous!

    They are from Fabulous curtains. I think you can google their contact (their showroom is at Balestier).


    We did wooden blinds for the living room and fabric blinds for the other 3 rooms, $1200+ inclusive of installations. Fuss free and very quick (got everything settled within 2 weeks!)

    I like the industrial look of your renovation but old man like me not so daring to try... heehee.

    The fan looks good...how much you pay for it? Bought locally?

    Thank you! We got the fan from Chan Huat at Balestier, this brand called Crestar, $240.

  12. The living room is now complete with the TV and coffee table! So relieved all the furnishing we cherry picked gel together fairly well.



    Can barely contain my excitement for the walk-in closet to be installed next Sat!

    Strangely, we have yet to get our bed frame cos nothing we sort of fancy (YET) so we're gonna take our time on that.

  13. I like the treasure chest too!

    These things can't find at un-inflated prices anymore.

    Gonna paint the inside surface? Maybe a dark turquoise heh

    They inside of the chest has already been spray-painted a cobalt blue!

    Turquoise is the hot fav color here. We just painted an old side table in turquoise!

    Yea, turquoise spruce up black/white/woods very well.

    Hi, would it be possible to pm me your contractor, Mr K, contact? Thanks

    Hi, you can contact Kevin at 90222321.

    love the details in ur house! esp the dining area!

    Thank you!

    hihi, where you got your lights in Study room? TIA..

    Hi, we got it at Chan Huat Lightings along balestier.

  14. Looking good!

    Thank you!

    Love the simple design of your house!

    Love the tiles of your kitchen?

    May I know did you get them from Hafary?


    Thank you! Tiles in the kitchen were purchased through our contractor, K (he calls it the subway tiles but not 3D kind). Sorry can't be much of a help with the name, perhaps you can show Hafary the photo and see if they have this?

    Nice tv console! :good:

    Thank you!

    I love the treasure chest!

    haha my hubby would be glad to know someone loves the trunk as much as him!

  15. A few more photos to share :)

    Gas pipe has been painted black and incidentally fit into our theme! Wires for the lights neatly placed!


    The industrial looking (albeit a little cute) sockets K proposed for the kitchen. They really do stand out quite abit.


    Our newly added TV console from Helping Hands. A very meaningful purchase, very sturdy (made of teak and VERY heavy) and we love how rustic it looks! Along with the treasure chest my hubby-to-be restored on his own (he got his inspiration from CB2! haha).


  16. hihi, your mirror at your dining table is from where? ikea? TIA..

    Hi, yep mirror's from IKEA and got our contractor to put it up!

    Where did you get your wooden tiles from?

    Wooden tiles from Soon Bee Huat! I recall it to be about $2.80-$3 psf.

  17. What is the brand of your ceiling fan? Looks rather small, wonder how's the performance?

    It's from crestar. 46-inch if I'm not wrong. It's quite breezy for us but perhaps cos we're not particular (plus we bought it mainly for its design and color!) haha.

  18. YTMO,

    that grey paint....wat kinda grey is that?

    looks really nice.! :good:

    Hi, it's mosaic grey from Dulux. Cannot remember the color code though!
