Our Dream Home @ Woodlands Meadow

Recommended Posts

Just spent the last hour doing "space planning" based on what I have discussed with my ID (not drawn to scale).

Original floorplan

Floorplan with "space planning"

Any comments or recommendations to this "planning"?

For me, I don't really like how the shoe cabinet will be behind the main door. But after discussion w my ID, he suggested this position, the bomb shelter or the circuit breaker box.

Any suggestions will be really appreciated as to where else to place my shoe cabinet :help:

Will ask to have this kind of "built in drawers" so we can reach all the way to the back of our cabinet.

Reading through the seasoned reno blogs can really poison new home owners! At least for me haha.

Definitely going to start shopping and KIV-ing on Amazon & maybe Taobao for household stuff :wub:

Was also out shopping with my mother in law yesterday for her bed as the current one is sagging badly after 10 yrs of use.

She got the Sealy Companion and a bed frame to go with it. When she was choosing the colours for the headboard, I realised Sealy has 3 shades of blue to choose from.

Super happy when I saw it! Means I can get blue bed frame for my MBR and it goes with the colour theme of the house!

But then again, I read in a basic feng shui website that to avoid blue for homes as it gives a gloomy feel. My ex-colleague say it gives a icy and cold feel too when I previously chose blue as my wedding theme.

But hubby & I love the colour :dunno:

Shall see what our feng shui master say when he sees our house + the 3D drawings.

Went for the Modern Living fair yesterday to source for ideas for sofa & dining tables.

Fell in love with the below leather modular sofa! It's really luxurious & comfy, but at $3699, it's way out of budget. Even after tweaking the configuration, it is still between $26XX to $27XX.

After discussion with hubby, and using his classic example of - it's like King Coil and Sealy, both serves the same function, do we really need a sealy for sofa? - we decided to go with the normal L shaped sofas (something like the below) and add a side table to it.

Colour wise, probably not white but something blue. Depends on whether we can find one though. White for sofa shld be a disaster when kids come along... At least for laminates, it can be cleaned away if not too stubborn. For leather or even PVC, once stained it's really all the best for us.

I have 3 chandeliers and i only cleaned once with the Magic Clean duster!

Thanks Cynthia! I love how you DIY and designed your home ;)

I spoke to my hubby about it again, he say put chandelier in the MBR, when cleaning the dust will fall onto the bed :dunno:

I think he's finding ways to convince me not to do it hahaha..

But magic clean duster sounds like a fuss free way of cleaning, so will try convincing him again :)
