Alright! I've updated my wishlist in the center column(read: shameless wheedling for stuff) so all you can prepare things for me for my birthday.. which is upcoming.. soon.
Just don't ask HOW soon.
As in this kind..Which gives you this..
There are lots of different wall decals around that can give a whole new look to a wall and by extension a room.. also wall coverings, edgy wallpapers etc.
Lovely design elements.. Yummy. I want to do up the wall behind my bed with something like these, and make it not-so-plain. Ooh, G will kill me for this. Heh.
2. More Ikea things
Hm, yes, the quintessential Singaporean home-furnishing store. What exactly did I want? I have no idea! Crummy colourful allsorts, I guess! Whatever!
Part of the fun is finding new things each time I go! Which, fortunately for my wallet, tends to be very seldom indeed.
Latest damage from Ikea courtesy of wedding gift from 04S75:
Two swivel chairs as above, in dark red, for our study
Please imagine this awfully bland rug in deep rich purple. Now, doesn't it look much better?
Also from Ikea, a plain lamp that was dismantled. The base of the lamp serves as a stand for a Tord Boontje "Thinking of You" vase-cover, bought from SFMOMA, that now lives an alternative life as a lampshade.
We bought the first one in the first picture, which is shown alone in the second picture below it. Add in a warm yellow light emanating from within the metal shell, and you have a pretty good idea of my newest bedside lamp.
And the lampshade of said Ikea lamp?
It lives an upside down life as a bucket for holding G's numerous remote controls. Perhaps it'll do for an ice bucket for bottle of (really small) wine in a pinch too!
The big-ass, hang-on-the-wall-as-a-statement-piece kind.
Something like, but not exactly these.
4. Footstool / short chair
For my dressing table. Saw a nice purple (ahempurpleahem) one at Barang Barang for an even nicer price.. Something like close to 200bucks even when on sale? Ouch! Siao!
This one's a tough one, actually, because it has to be the right height for my table (and how would I know that without having the table right there? Argh!)
Notice the wishlist this round is very much furniture- and interior-design oriented. That's the funnest part about moving house! =)
