New Day BED and Redecorating!

I've been meaning to redecorate our home for the longest time but I always get uninspired when I start thinking about the many things I’d need to do in order to give our home sweet home a fresh new look! Besides work, which is my main reason for putting this off, I'm also a little lazy. And I am not creative when it comes to decorating but I do my best to keep our home warm and cosy. The keyword here is try, which means I give my all but I don't always succeed!

When we first moved in here many years ago, our house seemed spacious and airy. Everything was new and it was fun decorating a brand new home with my darling. We had minimal furniture and most of them were new purchases like
bedside cabinets, coffee tables and TV rack from IKEA.

B and I love shopping in IKEA because it is so close to our home so it only makes sense to shop there. Plus the prices are reasonable and you can find plenty of awesome items including lovely beds for sale at great prices. Oh, there’s also the extra temptation to stop for their famous Swedish meatballs after a full day of shopping! Smiley

Nowadays, our home needs more than just a little sprucing up. I’m talking major upheaval and throwing out of old things and furniture to make room for new ones. Our sofa, which was once new and clean is now all scratchy and torn thanks to our three playful cats.

On a good day!

The day bed inside my home-office is also ruined, which explains why I’ve been scouring online for new daybeds online. No leather beds or chairs of course but something that can withstand my cats’ scratchy claws! We’re also very keen to trade in our current Queen for a King. A queen size bed is good enough for comfort but imagine the space I'd get to enjoy with a king-size bed! Smiley

Get off my bed meows!

These next few days will see me resting and rejuvenating from work. All my invoices have been sent, quotations emailed, translations approved and copywriting done. Now that my workload is lighter, there’s no reason to procrastinate any longer. So, besides catching up on much-needed sleep and beauty rest, I also want to get started on redecorating our home, starting with new kitty beds for my cats! Smiley

Hey GP!! I also need to re-do my home but I'm thinking a fresh coat of paint! I can't do much about the furniture because it's from my mom's house here in Subang. When she sold her house off, most of the things got transported back to KK, but she gave me one of her living room sets and tv stands when we first moved here.

I was glad that I didn't have to spend, but the furniture is now getting on my nerves coz it's a tad bit too big for our small and cozy home. So there's nothing much that can be done if I want to rearrange the house.

I hear you on getting a king bed. Get super king lah, alang2. Our beds in kk are super king and sangat puas hati tidur. the kids can be kicking away in their sleep and it doesn't affect anyone. LOL! :)

Shemah,  May 05, 2011 10:47 AM

But i love your house lah GP! :) So spacious and airy! :) Sangat best!! I love the kitty day bed too!! Ooooh I've got some stuff I've been eyeing over at IKEA too.. but J doesn't like going there. So far he says. :(

Hello Marzie! You've got a pretty home!

MaxiVelasco,  May 05, 2011 3:28 PM

Our sofa looks like the one you have. We've purchased ours from IKEA. Just like you, my boyfriend and I love IKEA. They have most of the things that we need for our apartment and the price is always nice.

MaxiVelasco,  May 05, 2011 3:30 PM

Those are cute kitty beds! Perfect for your purry friends... :)

Our cats have their own beds but they always end up sleeping right next to us. Cute creations!

Hugs to you Marzie!
