Yaaay, finally we just moved in to our new house! I’m so excited to share with you our process of moving in and decorating our first home! It took us a long time before we finally moved in, due to the lockdown and pandemic, but we did it!
We fell in love with this duplex house and one of the reason is that it is on the ground floor and have a gorgeous pool view. We didn't have the budget to renovate our house (although we would love to in the future).
We have many furnitures from both my hubby and my previous home and offices that we manage to sold off before moving to our new home. It'll be nice to start from scratch, but it's a shame to get rid some of our unsold furnitures.
In many ways, it was a HUGE amount of work. But, anyhow, we need to make it work.
It takes a certain eye to be able to pull a room together and make it fabulous and functional at the same time. But not everyone can hire an interior designer to guide us with our design decisions, also with the pandemic, it is not convenient to do any form of renovation... So we decided that with the help on the internet and pinterest, we can work our way on achieving our dream home.
Here is the photo of the house before we moved in, we were quite lucky that the previous owner really cleaned up well and the house was really well maintained. First things first! All walls to be painted white!
Wait what, isn't it already white? Short answer is. no.
The living room has an awesome tall ceiling wall and a great big window with nice view of the balcony and pool...obviously a feature wall art is must! There is an existing dry kitchen with a build in cabinet. We do have the desire to break down the dry and wet kitchen so we can have an open kitchen with a toilet and laundry room, but this has to wait.
On the ground floor, there is a guest room with a bathroom, store room and another small room in the kitchen (I think its a survival pantry closet in case of zombie apocalypse). On the second floor, there is a masterbedroom with a bathroom with a bathtub, 2 other bedrooms with a shared bathroom.
There is also another living room upstairs and the stairway area that is dying to be decorate. So that’s the first glimpse of our house! As you can see we have a lottttt of work to do and we are still figuring out the 'theme'. One thing for sure, we like the house to be bright, fresh and airy!
Putting the house together is an exciting adventure, I hope it wouldn't be stressful and overwhelming. The trick is to work on area by area, after all, we will be living there for a very long time.
Whether you’re moving to a new place, looking to bring new life into a room, or simply love home tours — we love to share our experience with you.
Stay tune for more!
