I'm one of those persons who gets a kick out of decorating for Christmas. I've lived in a huge house, a town house, a studio apartment, a one bedroom condominium and it didn't matter to me how big or small the space I had, I simply had to decorate for Christmas. 

Since were almost on to the first 'ber' month of the year and Christmas is fast approaching I was checking out some nice Christmas table top decor. One that would lend a little festive atmosphere to a small space, say like your office, or your studio apartment. I love Christmas trees, preferably huge ones, the real deal as they say. But  since a lot of us also have limited spaces, well these one I think would be nice..

Both are from Neiman Marcus..

If one does not want to end in a really cluttered house, one of those things we'd be needing are shelving. But I must say some shelves are not that appealing to me, they appear too bulky or altogether just dwarfs everything in a room. So, I've been thinking, what if you want to have some place to put your knick knacks and you want the shelf to look more like a complement to your decor?

It needn't be huge, just functional and of course it should not be an eye sore. I've jumping all around online surf shopping and I found this three really simple yet very charming wall shelves. I know some of you are wary about buying big items online but I'm posting these just the same to give you some ideas and if its possible you can also have one customized...

I'm not a huge fan of plastic, but I think I'd make an exception in this case. It's unique, ultra modern yet there something quaint about it. This is the Eames molded plastic rocker by Herman Miller. 






I like the way it curves like it looks just so ready to cradle your body. It is available in a variety of colors and priced at $479. Check it out at Grounded.

Sweden is well known for its furniture design manufacturing industry. I’m partial to Swedish designs because they mostly produce furnishings that are modern, sleek, yet comfortable and super stylish. So, there’s no surprise that I’m almost in love now with Bla Station’s furniture, particularly their sofas.

I honestly can’t decide which ones I like best, here some..

Back from Vacation and New Goals

I'm just back from a month-long vacation in my parents home in the Philippines. It has been two years since I was last there so there has been quite a few changes. We have this huge lot where our house stands and so my dad virtually has a lot of space to expand. Maybe he has nothing better to do and considering that its just him and my mom staying there, and the house already has four bedrooms he still saw the need to add another wing to the house. A huge bedroom plus a new garage and also a roof deck.

Our kitchen also have seen a lot of welcome changes, mainly lots of storage and cabinets for my mom's collection of pots and pans etc and this time they were all finished complete with cabinet doors! At least now, my mom is ecstatically happy that her stuff has its own place. Before my dad has this ningas cogon habit where he would start a project and lose interest, so we see a lot of unfinished cabinet doors around the house.

When we got back home here in Phnom Penh, hubby and I has been talking and making plans too of rebuilding our home. At least into something with a minimum of 4 bedrooms. One master bedroom, plus two bedrooms for kids and one office cum guestroom. This will be our project for the next two years and where all our saving efforts will be concentrated on. It's a big expense but we want to make it into one that would really stand in time and would cater to all our needs. 

I already have rough draft of our floor plans and am starting to look around for designs, materials that I'd want to incorporate in the house. It's going to be just small, will two floors plus a rooftop, and one thing I want to make sure is that it'll have ample storage spaces so even just now I'm already checking out cabinet suppliers. 

We have about 2-3 years to start this home building project and once we have it already I think that's the time we could start thinking of looking for a farm or a vacation house..
