Before and after

in Home & Garden

As part of my grand plan of setting new year resolutions, I have made some subtle improvements to our home interior. I am not an interior designer, mind you – considered warned if you need my advise in this department – If you have or given the right materials, tools, accessories, and theme, this task of re-decorating can be as simple as reciting your favorite song – without a tune, which is so much easier. The photos begins with the formal dining room, living room, kitchen and butler’s pantry. Butler’s pantry are commonly used for extra storage. Personally, I use it “buffet” style when we entertain family’s and friend’s. It’s very convenient when the dining table is not occupied with platters of food.

I have made some improvements in other areas of the house as well. Feast on the photos below:

We do not use the breakfast bar during meals – instead it is now a pedestal for my beloved indoor plants :)

I love indoor plants! In fact, I am planning to salvage some of my pots and pans and turn it into planters. Very green and economical.

Our favorite venue, especially during the summers. Endless BBQ’ing. The planters are filled with seasonal fresh herbs such as basil, rosemary, mint and curry leaves. Sigh, I can never live without curry leaves :D

Money plant! I heard many myths about money plant. So far, it fails to amuse me. People, stop spreading myths!

This is a very cute toilet placard :D My sister bought it for us from Amsterdam. We are so depended on Google Maps, and now we need a placard over the toilet door?

I need help on wall coloring as well. Do you think I need to paint different colors on my wall? Currently the walls are beige, all over the house! Suggestions on colors would be great :)
