We’ve moved into our new home for two months now, and it’s about time I get down to do a home tour post before laziness creeps in. 🙂
Truth be told, the first month I moved in, I was obsessed with cleaning. Gradually, the “new house syndrome” subsided, we’ve settled in comfortably and no longer obsessed with cleaning. Even though we’re not as fascinated as before, we’re still very much in love with the simplicity and clean design of our home.
As I’ve shared in my previous post, we’ve chosen neutral colours that include white, grey, beige and brown (wood) as we’re going for an overall soft and cosy look.
This is our living hall.
The Lamitak pearl and wood laminate provides a beautiful centrepiece for our home entertainment. We bought a Samsung 50″ SUHD 4K Flat Smart TV with 320 W 4.1 Ch Soundbar. Read my post on furniture and electrical appliances HERE.
For our curtain, we opted for Unislat – a new type of curtain from Korea. It’s very difficult to take a proper picture of our Unislat due to the light (as the material is very sheer). You can check out Picket & Rail website for more pictures on Unislat.
Unislat is like a vertical curtain. You can flip it so that you can see through or completely block-out for privacy. I like the fabric as it’s very light, soft and washable. I don’t need to bring it down for washing, just vacuum and clean with damp cloth. So, it’s easy on the maintenance part too. And because it’s sheer, our living hall is bright with ample sunlight.
Our ceiling fan is from Acorn. This model is Futuriste 309 56″ LED RGB twin-blade ceiling fan. I love it because: 1) it’s white, 2) modernistic design, 3) absolutely quiet, and 4) provides great air circulation for a natural and comfortable feeling. You can read my review HERE.
Our leather sofa is from Lorenzo – one of my favourite furniture brands. Our living hall is small, we had a hard time searching for an L-shape sofa that is below 2.3m in length. Most L-shaped sofa in the market is above 2.4m which is obviously too long for our hall.
This 3-seater sofa is like a dream-come-true to me. It’s not exactly L-shaped, but all the 3 seats can be extended to form an L. The foot rest can be pushed inside when not in use to save space.
Nonetheless, many guests commented that our sofa is too big. I guess this is the bare minimum for the three of us to sit comfortably. If I buy a two-seater, I may end up sitting on the floor!
This is our main balcony.
I grow orchids on my planter boxes.
This is our dining hall.
Our dining table, bench and chairs are from Cellini. The dining table has a quartz top, making it resistant to stains and scratches – the main reason why V loves it. I’d prefer a smaller glass top dining table with chrome-plated legs, and the price is half of the price of quartz top.
At the end, we chose the quartz top because it’s easy to maintain and more durable.
This is my kitchen.
We didn’t do any renovation in our kitchen. All the cabinets and furnishings are provided by the developer, including the fridge, convention oven, cooker hood, washer and dryer. I love the tall pull-out pantry which is truly a lifesaver for storing food in a small kitchen.
A stacked washer and dryer unit within cabinet in the kitchen is absolutely lovely too!
This is our master bedroom.
For all our bedrooms, we chose WinUs – Korea’s No.1 Roller Combi Blind Brand. Actually, there are many similar combi blinds in the market (commonly known as rainbow blind). We decided to invest a little bit more for the original WinUs Korean Combi Blind simply because we love their designs and quality. We’re going completely “curtain-less” because we don’t have time to wash them. Combi blind is easy to maintain, just vacuum or clean with a damp cloth.
Please ignore my dry cabinet on the bedside table. I couldn’t find a better place that is away from sunlight and has a power point. #nospace
This is Edison’s bedroom. 😉
Unlike my room, Edison’s bedroom is more colourful. Thanks to his Mickey Mouse bedsheet! We made a platform bed with drawers and cove lighting, and also a top hung cabinet for him. The drawers are now full of his toys and books. His transformer toys are neatly arranged on the cabinet, still have some empty spaces on top for future use.
This is our study room (bedroom 3). 😛
And lastly, the bomb shelter has been transformed into a fully functional store room!
Phew, that’s it! I took quite a long time to write this post and take so many pictures (some of them are taken since CNY). So, I hope you enjoyed my home tour! 🙂
