The last few months consists of some serious interior design researching, color palette matching, furniture hunting and price comparing! We actually didn't realize the amount of work (& money) needed to fix up a home because our current apartment came almost full furnished. But we did alot of back breaking DIY redecorating like repainting the whole 2300sqf of walls. So we became smarter this time and decided to let the contractor do the physical work while we do the money saving part like getting the best price tag.
The thing we will probably missed most about our current home would definitely be the resort like environment; tennis court, swimming pools, palm trees right outside our patio and the grill-less concept. Not being able to take those with us, we adapted whatever that is possible - a tub!
When we went to check on the renovation progress, we were extremely pleased with how it has turned out. I can already imagine laying out some scented candles, jars of bath salt and home spa kit in there :)
My other favorite thing to shop for would be lights. We did most of our shopping around the lighting shops at Puchong because they have some really great stuff there for really compatible price. And we went there at least 3-4 times to complete our shopping because we couldn't find everything at the same time due to indecisiveness. The dining area light was the first one we picked out because i like the retro chandelier look and i like their RM280 price tag.
We initially planned to move in by this month it's not quite happening due to the delay in getting our fixtures in. We also haven't lifted a single finger on packing our things because hubba and i have clashing views on how to begin the moving. While he continues to under estimate the packing part, i've been quietly throwing things out and vacuum bagging some clothes. I'm sure he wouldn't notice a missing magazine or two!
