Modern Mix Heritage Style For Postwar Flat

Recommended Posts

Max is very handsome! Our sheltie has pointy and long muzzle and not much white fur. He is also a bit timid and sometime shy, but we love him anyway. He has been with us for 8 years. He will sit if we ask him, but sometime run away if we want to take picture :) He is good with the children, I guess it is part of their shepherd instinct.

I found this lights today from Brokis called memory. Very cute and colorful

Too bad it is quite expensive, and one piece is not enough. But I really like the witty idea, and its colours.

Slightly off topic now. Need some advice with rice cooker.

How do you usually store the rice cooker? My current rice cooker just stay on a small table beside my dining table, and it never moves except for cleaning. Its position looks awkward and untidy, but it is not practical to hide it as we use it 3 times a day.

I need a better solution for my new kitchen. Any idea on where to "park" the rice cooker, easy to access from dining area, but look tidy and good.

I've considered to put inside a cabinet, but it need to be outside when cooking, if not the steam will damage the cabinet.

To put it on the kitchen counter is more practical but doesn't look very nice. I am considering to ask the contractor to create a special nook for it.

Please do share your solution on rice cooker. I also want to buy new better looking rice cooker, preferably with stainless steel inner pot.

What abt smth like this? :)

LOL...max was also very shy and timid...if we had too many people in the house...especially kids disturbing him...he would get so stressed he would throw up! LOL. He hated pictures...after each snap...he would bark at me...LOL...he never got use to pictures...

I have seen a lot of people construct something like the pictures above for their electric kettle and rice cooker. They would extend it when they need to cook. There was one person on RT..so sorry i can't remember the name of the blog...they made a cabinet door..so when they opened it...it would automatically extend the shelf out...thought that was very nifty.

I have a dilemma with the vintage rattan sofa.

The cost to reupholster these cushions is $1550 (new thicker cushions and new fabric).

The cost to re varnish is $600, that is not including the shipping cost.

Restoring this vintage piece is expensive. We can get a new sofa with this price.

On one hand, this is a genuine piece that belong to this house. On the other hand, this sofa is a bit awkward (scale is too big for the living room), and I have to throw away my sofa from my old flat (I can't keep two sofas, no space).

If I don't restore it, it already become a bit shaky, and blotchy because some part of the varnish has gone. :unsure:

I plan to buy this stove, because of the vintage look, and also the price is affordable. It is Elba. Anybody have experience with Elba?

Freestanding cooker! I've been waiting for someone to get this type of cooker instead of the normal hobs. I would love to see how it fits in your kitchen.
