Future Entry

Ok, I have been almost one week trying to post this before falling asleep on the computer, but, apparently, have not been able to get it. I hope I will do it today, lol.

I said I would tell you how I would like to redecorate my entrance hall, right? So, here it is:

First of all, I think my hallway needs to look bigger, so I thought of removing the painting and the sideboard and put a big mirror instead.

That is the photo that inspired me for what I said. The next thing is the stool; I would like it to be a little different than in the picture above.

Yes, something like those ones... Don't know the color yet, though. I love the tufted one, it looks elegant and comfortable.

Finally, a beautiful crystal lamp would be perfect, although it should be a floor one (There is not enough space in the ceiling, because of the entry door). The main option is...

... This one, on its floor version. Gorgeous, isn't it?

Sunday tomorrow, Yay! =D I have so many things to do at home and I am looking forward to doing them!

How was your weekend?

I had planned on writing a new post today, but I spent the day out at Ikea and I was not able to do it. I will post something soon! =)

The entrance

Welcome back!

I am going to show you my entrance hall now. This space is almost finished by the moment, although we are currently planning on changing it as soon as we can.

The "room" is small and simple, yet cozy. As you can see in the picture, there is a beautiful piece of furniture made out from French Cherry tree that we bought when we were still living in my previous flat. I remember that I loved the black border when I saw it in the catalogue.

The table lamp is not something special at all, it is just a classic, simple one. The thing you can see in the right of the picture is a big vase with some bamboo canes.

The thing I like the best is the center piece, the flower arrangement made with white roses. I was inspired to choose it by the "table with the flowers" in Miranda's townhouse in The Devil wears Prada movie.

The framed pictures are just two family photos in black and white. One of the frames is wood, and the other one is mother-of-pearl.

The painting was made by me in 2005.

We need a hanging lamp here; actually we were going to have one, until we discovered the one I had planned for the room was too large and we had to change our minds. So, we are probably going to install something like this:

So, what do you think? This is how it is now, but I will have to post (soon) what I have really planned for this room and what I will do as soon as my budget allows me, hehe.

What am I doing?

Hi all!

As usually, later than I expected... Well, I think I should explain several things up from my previous post, right?

About my bedroom: I guess it does not need a lot of words to explain... Just that I should probably say "My bed" instead of "My bedroom", since I am only showing my bed. The rest of the room is not good enough to share yet... Hehe. You will see it as soon as I can.

The hallway: the most important thing here is, no doubt, the chandelier. It is really beautiful, isn't it? Anyway, I love every kind of crystal lamps: classic ones, modern ones... I bought this one originally for my foyer. Unfortunately, it is too high and it would crash with the entrance door, so it is finally hanging in the hallway.
What you see on the right is a shoe cabinet that is provisionally there; also, the doors are going to be painted white, and do not even look at the floor, I know it is too ugly: it is going to be fixed/replaced some time.
I am going to hang some art in the walls of the hallway, too.

Today, I finished priming one of the living room walls; next step, tomorrow I am going to paint it! The color I am using is the same I used for the hallway walls, from the NCS color system: 1002-Y50R. This is how it looks in my screen:

After finishing painting the living room, I have to continue with other unfinished projects at home. Yay!

Am I still here?

Yes, I do.
Actually, I have been quite busy since October: renovating, working, thinking... You know. I like being busy, after all.
My to-do list is always full of things. I am usually designing, decorating, working on different projects, etc. Currently, I am renovating my livingroom: painting walls, trim, door; thinking about its decor; and planning how to place things there.
So, maybe I should start sharing some pictures of my space, the ones I have at the moment.

My bed. Actually I took this picture some time ago, but I like it. It does not have my new cushions neither my new black blanket, but I like it.

Once again, my bed, this time with my new velvet cushions and the new blanket.
