my humble abode

I've always wanted a place of my own. 
A place I can dwell inside, do whatever I want and leave the world out.
And I'm working on it. Saving money. Less shopping/travelling.
Work work work.. money money money. =P

As an interior designer, I can NEVER decide what I like for myself.
I tried doing my own moodboard in my spare time.. but never happened. Braindead.
One thing that is "still me" would be, dark cozy colors with a hint of bold "happy" color.
Posted some pix here to sorta combine my fav elements..

I once like this.. Hmmm.. Still fancy the different pieces of furniture in the mix of
bold and pastel colors but don't quite fancy the panther's head as the backdrop.
Maybe Audrey Hepburn in monochrome with a hint of red lips or just pastel rainbow strips.. 

Nice. I wonder if I will get bored with black. Hmm.. Apparently NOT. =P

The masculine straight lines are given a feminine kick with accents of
Monroe's lipstick red. Like!! A very personal touch.

Entire feel was right for a cozy place to come home to. Except maybe the
dining chairs.. too bony. And too many things happening at the ceiling.
A dark walnut timber floor would be a bonus effect. Anyway love it.

This is very Zen-ish. I only like the shadow casting on the floor.
A daily warm greeting from the morning sun. 

For young couples or a lone ranger, this concept is very well composed.
I would prefer to tame the look down by replacing that hot pink table with a  rugged
timber coffee table instead to bring out the mustard colors from the backdrop.

A perfect perfect PERFECT place for me to read my books.
Drowned in my jazzy songs with a hot cuppa, looking out on a rainy day.
Oh I want this NOW!!

Never thought a dark turquoise would add so much character
into the kitchen. Not a bad idea. =P

Looks a little cluttered but tastefully done. Maybe not so gungho photos.
Some classic ones, family photos. That will be nice.
Literally made my home very HOMEy, if that makes sense.

I need not a huge space but just a decent space to get cozy with my man and kids in future.
As for my single status now, a small studio apartment will keep me VERY satisfied.

Wonder how will my future abode be if I mixed all my favorite colors, textures and elements all in one place.
And back to work!! Gotta work hard to get my own place. =)
