Kitchen picccccccssssss :D island 

anyway, my home is largely the same. Been contemplating changing to a 3 seater sofa but u know how tiny our 3R is, especially my orientation. I’m selling a bunch of stuff away tho.

 

haha ok! will try and take some pics of the island. 

i think i did mention in your blog last time i feel you have a very good layout, because yours seem so much bigger than mine. my kitchen is just so ridiculously small i cant even :huh: then again i realize now my living room is rather big for a 3R coz i have a 210cm sofa + a side table + chair + bookcase aligned on one side and it still seems ok. my mom told me she went to a relative's 3R BTO and there wasnt any space for a coffee table. but whats the point of a big living room when my kitchen is barely 2m long? hardly any space to move. 

im also selling some of my old books and plates, on carousell haha. what are you selling away?

Ya, yours is the bomb shelter in lr layout, lr become bigger but wasted space makes kitchen v small. My kitchen anyway only slightly bigger than yours, but Yours is legit quite small. My parents new place at Punggol also v small kitchen, similar layout to yours. 

What about the rest of your home? 

I’m selling the bookcase, foyer table, footstool and perhaps ghost armchair in my living room so that I can change to a sofa bed... It’s 218cm, so I know abit cray. We’ve been doing a lot of measuring, but it will open up more seating and also maybe clean up the look a bit, less cluttered.

i alre ordered a Super slim shoe cabinet from Tb to replace my current one. Haha. 

Because you hacked away one room also right? Your LR looks even bigger and more spacious lor. I worked hard to keep the second room but also means with the corridor, my LR is so small and limited orientation (ie ONE KIND ONLY)

sweetie im soooo happy to see you around here again! missed you so much, most people seem to just "disappear" after their reno is complete. 

yes i've moved in 2 months ago! got carried away with all the nice decor of the nordic homes on pinterest & instagram so i keep buying & decorating lol. thanks so much for your kind words, means alot to me coming from someone like you, you have one of the nicest homes around here. 

i think minimalist homes can have a few decors too, i've seen some nice ones and in my opinion as long as they're not overbearing ie striking in color they can still look nice. a few plants would be good for a start, you can never go wrong with greenery! in fact i adore the "jungalow" style haha. then i would probably get a couple of furnishings like clock, cushions in white, cream or grey, posters with maybe black wordings against a white bg would be nice too. for me im totally big on decor so its easy for me to go overboard haha. better stop suggesting to you! are you still furnishing your home?

Yeah it's true that most don't hang out here after reno is done! probably because their 'job' on this space is done hahah. I've stayed in my place for a year already, and finally gonna be hosting an official housewarming next month. This speaks of how slowly my husband and I do stuff, yes? 

We're done with the final aspects of our home like storeroom which was only done earlier this month. I can't believe we simply chucked stuff inside and pretended that the mess didn't exist for 11 whole months. As the saying goes, out of sight, out of mind! So glad that it has been settled. 

And yes, the urge to buy cute furnishing and decor never ceases!! But once the house is slowly being filled up, I question myself alot more before actually making purchases because I'm afraid they'll become white elephants. I took some pictures of my home yesterday and will be posting them on my tblog soon! 

I adore homes with lots of greens (can see that you've quite a few yourself! V nice!) but Kings refuses to allow more than 1 living thing/pet in the house. I've already broken that rule by having 3 live plants, and will have more in future definitely. Just need to add them sneakily. Heh.

hello again guys! i've moved in to my new home for 7 months already, how time flies! still loving every bit of my home, and thought i should come back and post some pictures. these few months i've mainly been cocentrating on putting more lights either using fairy lights or table lamps.

rose gold mirror side table from fortytwo.sg. i was worried about how it would look in my home, turned out really nice. nicer than i thought!

view from service yard overlooking the kitchen and bomb shelter turned dry pantry at the far end. the dry pantry is the best idea ever. not only do i get to keep the bomb shelter door opened at all times for better ventilation (i know its usually closed for most people), i store all my dried goods such as flour, sugar, coffee, tea etc in there. i had this idea initially of a bottom cabinet with 3 top shelves but the carpentry would cost a bomb for a U-shaped pantry, something like $4000 for a small space so i bought two brusali high cabinets from IKEA instead and only cost me less than $400.

kitchen details. im hooked on those gold stuff.

my two pots of fiddle leaf fig are pretty healthy and happy now!

all my stuff are from taobao, and even till today i cant stop buying! so i've pretty much hosted my family, close friends and relatives. comments about my home range from "hotel", "club" to "showflat" lol.

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.

A good idea !But I wonder if touch wood something happened and there's not much space for alot of people to stay inside the bomb shelter as it will be suffocated due to very little of space ?

May I know if most people change the WC and sink provided by hdb? If so why do they since they have to fork out extra $$?

just realized i havent posted a photo of my island workstation + dining area so here it goes :

OyGinYV.jpg

the island has been my best decision ever. not only is there more storage, i do my baking and product photo taking (for my carousell) there. it also doubles up as a coffee corner with my nespresso machine & capsules. using laminate countertop is also one of the best decisions, its cheap and really easy to maintain. no need to go for fancy schmancy ones like quartz, silestone or whatever.
