Gorgeous living

I like interior design. Not so much doing it, because I don’t have talent in this aspect, but rather the fascination with how raw materials, furniture and lights, can give so much life to a home, reflecting the personality of the owner. Whenever I flip through related magazines like Vogue Living, Style Home, Home & Decor, even Ikea catalogue, I get lost. There are just too many styles one can create for their living space. Every show room looks beautiful, although only a few really call out to me and make me wish I had a home like that. So far, loft apartments really interest and intrigue me. I guess I like the idea of having a high ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a second storey within the same apartment, like this:


or this:


Gorgeous living?

And I would really like to have:

A bookshelf like that, where I can have all my books neatly displayed, away from the dust, but yet so accessible.


And a pretty little table…


What do you want to have at home or in your room?

    All da best to everyone…

  9. Hi j0anne,

    nice music you have in your blog 🙂

    I always try to decorate my room by copying those displays in Ikea or those furniture shops displays.. however by sourcing for cheaper deals and stuffs.. but sad to say, so far it has failed terribly… the outcome of my room is nowhere near what I’ve seen in shops so far!

    i guess it really take some pain staking effort to design and purchased the right furnitures that can match and satisfy our desires.. maybe that’s why it cost a bomb to hire interior designers to help you with this..

    but i do believe that besides getting your furnitures at Ikea or Courts or those furniture shops in shopping centers, you can try your luck at those factory who provide goods to these outlets at those industrial areas.. pretty sure you can get a very good deal for something similiar if not same.. unless all got alot of spare money to spare 🙂

    can reply moi emails pls pls pls=(

  30. oh and songs are nice=) i like then alot *smiles*


  32. there was a time where i was crazy abt interior designs and i search mags/books/internet all abt it…but then my craze had died off. 😛

    interior design a lot of things!!! quite difficult!! XD

  33. We all can have beautiful dream homes and room, but haiz we can only dream about it. I don’t think it will ever come true in the coming 5-years projection to come.

    Because the truth is, it costs a bomb to ask a home designer to design such luxurious home. For me, of course I like the idea and style of 2-storey house, but the disadvantage is it is too big to clean and maintain, haha. And also in the long run, you may find it irritating, the bigger the house, the more time you need to travel around your house, haha.

    Me too, I also like to have a beautiful and huge bookshelf, which is covered with glass to protect all my books and some gifts from friends from dust. And also a working or study table. No need to be nice, but large enough to put my things and do my writing. And also a beautiful wardrobe, how nice if it is a walk-in one with plenty of hook spaces for my clean clothes and worn clothes, though I know it is expensive, Gee. A good powerful PC with wireless internet network, a good sound system for my PC, a stereo radio and CD player etc. Yes, an good energy-saving, yet comfo aircon, and a handy standing fan, at times I dun need an air-con.

    Haiz, I can only dream about it. But I will work towards this dream, hopefully 🙂 and also hopefully, I will find my other half to share my dreams, including my dream house.
