I was in downtown over the weekend for some retail therapy. When I walked into one of the stores, something caught my eye. No, it wasn’t the clothes on display. Actually it is the display in the store. Two bamboo baskets were held together with ropes to create a lampshade. Ain’t that a cool idea? Such a simple and zen-inspired design.
I just saw a really cool summer house from Elle Interior last night. I thought I’ll share this bright and airy summer home with all of you. I wish I have a home like this. The white walls are so calming and peaceful.
The bedroom. I love the bamboo headboard. It is so simple and has a minimalist look.
A white kitchen with open shelves
I love the picnic bench and the bamboo pendant lamp.
I saw this cute wall clock idea at decor8 just now. A great way to decorate the nursery or your little ones’ room. It is a Passe-Partout photo frame clock which you can fill with colourful prints, photographs or gift wrap for the unique look. This clock is available at Dutch by Design. Perhaps I should try my hands on doing one too once I have done reading about the disability insurance. It looks pretty easy to do eh? Just get the center timepiece with arms and 12 different sizes photo frames. Time to let the creative juice flow.
I love to see wooden pallets being upcycled as home furniture. I have come across articles about wooden pallets being treated with chemicals hence they are not very suitable as furniture. I wonder if there is a way to remove the chemical. Would any of you know? When I was at Pinterest, I found a few wonderful ideas on how wooden pallets are re-purposed as furniture. It is pretty inspiring.

While the spouse was reading rv emergency roadside assistance document to prepare himself for the road trip next month, I was busy pinning on Pinterest. That’s my favourite past time now. I came upon a few lovely kitchen pins on Pinterest and decided to share them with you here. I so want a kitchen that looks like this. Can you spot the similarities in these photos?
Yes, it is the fridge. I just cannot get enough of these vintage-inspired funky fridges. They are so retro. I want one of these Smeg or Big Chill in my kitchen.
I should be shopping for a grad present now but I am still hooked on Pinterest. I just saw this really clever idea on Pinterest – Storage under the staircase. It is one of the oldest space saving tricks in interior design handbook. Making use of the leftover space underneath the staircase is so creative. It can be used to keep toys, linen, knick-knacks and junk. A great storage solution for homes that are short of space.
I just saw this lovely idea on Tatertots and Jello. I love how an old door is being used as a table. The owner found this old door in the barn and then decided to turn it into an outdoor table. She painted it blue and stenciled some words on it. Ain’t it gorgeous?
This is so inspiring. Now I want to go find some old doors and turn them into tables too.
I have been looking around for a dresser for my bedroom. I already have one but need an extra dresser to keep my things. My bedroom furniture is in brown and are mostly made of wood. So when I saw this cute Ordinal Dresser from Anthropologie, I was thrilled. It is just perfect for my bedroom. I love its rustic look. The Ordinal Dresser features a metal top. I can picture this dresser in my bedroom, keeping my clothes and accessories such as my scott kay rings and bracelets neatly.
Besides looking for slimming pill that works, what I really need to do this weekend is to organize my refrigerator. I have a hard time finding what I want to look for in my fridge. You can imagine how messy it is. Sometimes, I even found food that has expired or turned moldy. I really should get a few airtight containers from The Container Store to keep things organized. Erasable food storage labels are a quick and easy way to identify and date food. So, do you mind sharing how your fridge looks like?
I just came across a very beautiful home and can’t wait to share it with you here. I saw the photos from seesawdesigns.blogspot.com. What I love about this space is the lovely flooring. I also love the wooden chairs in the dining. Where can I get them? The wooden chairs are so lovely.
Below is a photo of the kitchen. Check out the beautiful flooring and also the white wall tiles. I so want this for my kitchen.
I think I can live in this house!
