Remember this?


Our a new Apartment unit


Do you see the living room space on the plan? Well, I can finally show you the living space because our sofa just arrived today! Although there are still some unfinished touches, it’s a great way to continuously show you guys more updates in the future! Here is our living room set.


Excuse my camera. I did the best I can considering the fact that I don't have a wide angle camera and our apartment is really small =)



Another view of the space.



Wished I could capture the floor to ceiling space with just one shot.


There are a few things missing such as wall arts and our glass coffee table that I have yet to purchase, but I do love the color scheme and of course our lovely rug! I don’t generally recommend having a rug on a carpeted floor but in our case, I just love how it really defines our living space! What do you think so far? Stay tune for more updates and pictures!

My Design Style

I recently stumbled upon Studioten25‘s design blog and took a quiz on Sproost that determined what my style of designed was. It asked me to rate a couple of pictures and what did you know, it said my style was 50% Contemporary. No surprise there!  I already knew how crazy I was with clean lines and simplified forms.

So contemporary design is definitely the style I lean toward but I don’t like over simplified space that left one feeling empty and cold or just plain static. That’s why the other 25% is Cottage Chic and Modern Elegance. So my true style is actually all three. I like the clean, uncluttered look of contemporary style, but I also love to mix the old with the new. I love my space to appear solid but with subtle details that catch the eyes (I call that a pleasurable surprise! hehe).

I also love warm colors in a space esp. with dark wood and some bold textured textiles. Overall I really enjoyed this quiz. Below are pictures that represent the three styles above.
