hi guys, so this is the start of my reno journey! pretty excited to have my own thread as i've always been awed by many beautiful homes here. for starters, floor plan! the wait for our 3 room BTO has been very long (5 years).

i'm not exactly happy with the size as i've seen a couple of 3 room btos here and they all have way bigger living room and kitchen than i have. i probably have bigger toilets and maybe slightly bigger master bedroom but whats the point? i bake so i need an island this time round. will be very challenging but mostly likely it will be where the dining area is, and there will be no space for a proper dining table.

my moodboard. i want a black/dark grey theme and im really into the dark cosy look! i'm really inspired by some of the members' homes namely johnjohn's dark & cozy, renozilla's acidentally danish, owl&bear's parisian chic as well as yelena's the lake house. i also love marble and gold accents & fixtures. no idea how its all gonna come together as marble & gold is more suited for a white decor i think? but we'll see how. sorry my mood board is gonna be all over the place for now, when i have more time on hand i'll sort them according to rooms and possibly pull more pics from Q****.

HOUSEHOLD SHELTER

household.jpg

i really like this idea of movable shoe shelves inside the bomb shelter, opening up to reveal a tiny space behind for stuff like vacuum cleaner & luggage. as you can see, i don't have a proper place for a shoe cabinet and the DB box just won't do, so i will go for this idea instead.

This is totally beautiful! I'm intending to do up my study room framed up like this too, instead of the kitchen! 

Have you went around for quotations on this yet?

yes yes, will be meeting some ID soon. let me try get some quotes. just worried about maintaining these frames... 

ok, please let me know! i wont be looking for ID, so i wonder whether contractors' prices are comparable lol. true, maintaining would be a pain, though a matte gold paint would help it last longer?

could anyone who's bought big items like furniture and lighting from taobao please let me know what forwarder/shipping co. you used? i've always been using 4px their official forwarder but they go by weight, not container, which can be very ex. thanks!

Hello! Looking at your floor plan, I do think this is a great idea!

I like your moodboard, some photos look very familiar to me haha, cos I favourited them too! The marble look is supposed to be on trend this year, and it goes well with metal finishes. Copper and rose gold will complement them very well too! Can't wait to see how your place will look like!

When are you getting you keys?
