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 saw it.
The Challenge begins…
*Found the rocking chair at the nearby Pre-owned Shop, looks very new. looking good, paired with the couch.
i chose to add a personalize wall Art by taking photos of my kid’s hands and cute feet.Purchased my 2$ frame at the local photo studio and light from IKEA.
A long green curtain and a bamboo blinds tied up with the color of the sofa and the carpet, and made the window seem bigger than it really was.
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 ball is 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 serves as Wall Art and as you know, helps to enlarge the room visually.

The Finished Family Room… tadaaaa!!!
So there you go… My not really expensive Make-over.
I’ll be posting soon m Zesty Dining area.
I painted one side of the wall an exciting color as a focal point. Inviting to the eyes once you enter my tiny hallway. Drop light, light blue candle lamp were from my fave Swedish store, frame from a thrift local shop.

Re upholstered the dining seat to blend in with the color scheme.
I really love, love, love this cupboard. It has a Japanese feel to it.
