Apartment Therapy

Posted by Picasa
After the long hiatus, some may be wondering what I've been up to. My online shop is rather neglected. I've been busy renovating and decorating our new apartment. Now the apartment is close to what I've envisage. I shall not bore you with the details of how we manage to pull this off, how we wrestle with the contractors. Here's the highlight: featuring traditional patterned metal ceiling, paired with bespoke wall paneling, raw copper clad kitchen cabinets and dark ash black solid oak flooring, the look is rough luxe but still feels like a home.

I will take my time to add personal touches throughout the home. Sometimes it's good to live in a new place for a while before decorating it, take time to get to know it better. The missing piece of puzzle arrived yesterday, our distressed leather sofa. After all that we've been through, problem with the delivery due to narrow lift and stairwell, we had to re-order a smaller piece to fit, waited for months for it to be custom made in Italy, it's finally here. But wait, it still didn't fit. The delivery guys had to take it apart and reassemble it on site. A royal pain, but looking at it in my living room now, makes those troubles melt away...
