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.

    Chaotic day, fitting all the furniture in a narrow rectangular-shaped Family Room. The sudden soar of rent was to blame!  really!  

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 blue sofa has a new look

The Finished Family Room… tadaaaa!!!

So there you go… My not really expensive Make-over.

I’ll be posting soon m Zesty Dining area.



Zesty Dining AreaODD , is what you may call it, most of the flats here were 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 hall way will greet you, 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. Drop light, light blue candle lamp were from my fave Swedish store, frame from a thrift local shop.

Bamboo blinds once again folks, and an old plastic flower i crafted to tie the curtain.
*notice the hallway on the left?

 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.

And though our new home is quite smaller than we had before, i think it didn’t matter now.
