I was thinking of what to blog and I am totally disinclined to get my fingers tap the keyboard. I don’t know if I was caught up with huge (or I just thought so) errands or been struck by idleness. I drag myself to sit on my chair and let the words flow and what do you know? It does the trick.
A friend . or so I thought (not anymore and it’s a blessing..It’s a long story) and I had a trip to IKEA to pick up items that would complete my long-awaited decorating plan to be carried out.
It’s quite vague whether we’re frantic about what a wonderful world of furnishings and beauteous room ideas or was it after 2 long hours of driving we can fill our hollowed tummy growling next to each other.
Summer is not only for people.
When you think that Summer only excites people to buy new clothes and bask in the sun to get the new trend. Homes get an update too, and why not?! you’ll have all the summer feel in your home all day long all season long. Enjoy Summer even at home… read more
ODD, as what you may call it, most of the flats here are very generous of doors to separate every room with different functions, seemingly a labyrinth. The one that we got was impressively unique too, upon entering the door a very short hallway will greet you, and on the left-hand side, you’ll find the kitchen and on the opposite side, with a few steps, you are ready to dine.
I painted one side of the wall an exciting color as a focal point. Inviting to the eyes once you enter my tiny hallway. The drop lights and the light blue lamp were from my fave Swedish store but the frame was from a thrift local shop.
It has been a long time since I planned to get into blogging and after a lot of years, here it goes… my first post with photos included. So for the pilot episode (haha!) i decided to feature our home ( in Fujairah, UAE ) that i decorated back in 2005.
I do not really like the blue sofa. Just got crazy buying it
when i felt the supple velvety texture when I touched it.
The Challenge begin…
*Found the rocking chair at the nearby Pre-owned Shop, looks very new. looking good, paired with the couch.
I chose to add a personalized wall Art by taking photos of my kid’s hands and cute feet. Purchased my 2$ frame at the local photo studio and lighting from IKEA.
A long green curtain and the bamboo blinds tied up with the color of the sofa and carpet, and made the window seem bigger than it really is.
The wall border breaks the plain white wall.
A very lucky person that I am, I found some nice wood palette and used them as shelves. The carpet was a gift from a friend, which actually gave me the inspiration of the calming color that i used in the room.
Few more stuff to fill the shelves… The colored Glass balls are from IKEA.
I divided the room to make way for an Office space..
( Applying the solution for a rectangular shaped room.)
Added a floor lamp with task light, replaced my bulky computer table (by selling it at the Pre-owned shop). The mirrors serve as wall art and as you know, it helps to enlarge the room visually.

The Finished Family Room… tadaaaa!!!
So there you go… My not-really-expensive room Make-over.
