Here, there, almost everywhere…

This week, I completed a renovation project, started another reno project, bagged a new client, and am joining a bazaar for the weekend. (Not to mention that the little Hawaiian restaurant we opened some months ago will begin lunch operations this Saturday!) I feel tired, to say the least—a fulfilled kind of tired. But more… Continue reading Here, there, almost everywhere…

My picks for a contemporary Scandinavian home

Been working on a project where my client requested for super-clean, dust-proof, easy-to-maintain interiors. Since I have been favoring Scandinavian design lately, I recommended we go for a contemporary Scandinavian look—its palette of warm neutrals and bright and airy aesthetic are perfect for the kind of lifestyle and environment he wants to live in. Luckily, his condo's finishes already… Continue reading My picks for a contemporary Scandinavian home

House tour!

I just realized while thinking of what to post today that I haven't made a proper house tour since I started this blog. So here's my attempt at showing you some of the rooms in our townhouse. The bedrooms are pretty small since the lot area is only around 53 square meters, but we do… Continue reading House tour!

How I (finally) styled my home office shelves (part 2)

Remember when I tried styling my home office shelves several ways, but wasn't quite happy with the results of my labor? I think I've finally styled them in a way that I find satisfying. If you don't remember, these are the different permutations of what my home office shelves looked like before. First they looked like this: Then, I… Continue reading How I (finally) styled my home office shelves (part 2)

Switching up the look of my home office shelves (part 1)

I spend almost every day in our home library, which is what I use as my own office. I'll have you know that we own a lot of stuff—and I do mean a loooot of stuff—and despite regularly holding garage sales, we never seem to run out of them. Our library is no exception. My husband and I are… Continue reading Switching up the look of my home office shelves (part 1)

Event styling: Glamour-themed 18th birthday party

Just recently, I accepted a project on styling a Hollywood glamour-themed debut (my sister's events company, Pink Sunshine Events, did the events coordination for it). The budget was pretty tight as the debutante had only decided to hire an events stylist a few weeks before the big day. She basically asked me to improve on the decor… Continue reading Event styling: Glamour-themed 18th birthday party

Hi everyone. Well, I can't seem to post regularly on my blog now, can I? My sincerest apologies for this. Been going through some, um, things, in life lately, so this had to take a backseat. Anyway. Moving on. We spent the weekend over at my parents. I love (1,000,000x) spending the night at my parents.… Continue reading 1 reading corner, 2 ways

The many ways you can make your bed

How do you make your bed? This is ours. Almost everything about the way I fix up my own house now comes from my mom, and making my bed was something she taught me well. While our bed doesn't exactly look hotel-glam or showroom-worthy, this is how I've been fixing my bed since I was a kid.… Continue reading The many ways you can make your bed

Have window ledge, will reading nook

I live in a four-storey townhouse, and being an impulsive decorator, I often find myself wanting to fix up every square-inch of empty space I see. Blame it on my obsessive pinning on Pinterest, and constantly scanning my design and decor books and magazines for ideas to apply at home. Now there is this spot on our third… Continue reading Have window ledge, will reading nook
