Inspiration Room

I've been really busy with the renovation for my room. Who knew it required so much attention! I know that most people would be more than excited to select tiles, wallpaper, lights etc. for their new room, but it's really not when it's scorching like 38 degrees C outside and go from store to store looking for the right toilet bowl for you. Yesh, I said toilet bowl. Did you know that every toilet seat is different and the only way to find out is obviously to sit on it? So in a store right behind a bus-stop, I took a seat on the toilet bowl while alighting passengers gave the stare. Well, that surely made for embarrassing moment 490823409 in my life!

Toilet accessories are so expensive and selecting the right shape, size and quality. There's made in China, Switzerland, Germany, Italy... Honestly, I just think they're all made in China and that's that. All in all, It was so exhausting! Hopefully, everything will turn out just like this...

The colour theme and concept is the same. Can't wait to see the outcome!

Here's some other inspiration I'm looking at for my room. I'm thinking I should stick to white walls and go gaga with colours when it comes to most furniture! =D Prints! Prints and more Prints!

I got all these photos from Design*Sponge but if anyone has any other recommendations on great websites to source inspiration from. Let me know! =D

Little projects I'm currently working on.

Lizzie Forunato Jewelry = very beautfiul but very expensive.
Therefore I'm making one for myself. Hopefully it comes out as awesome as the original. I'm using fabric for the cranes though I'm really not sure what they use for the original. I thought it might be paper, but whose going to buy a paper necklace! =D

The alphabet bag! Why buy one when you can make it at home for yourself and your friends! But for the original deal, click here.

I've just completed a tassel/studded sling bag. Will show everyone soon when I have a chance!

Have a good weekend everyone!

Larissa: Thanks for the link, hun! Oh and I have a feeling I'm never gonna leave my room if it turns out the way I envision as well. LOL

Anna: The bathroom has been decided and work will start tomorrow. However I'm still looking for other inspirations for the room itself. Since it's a loft, it's gonna be hard!
