Current Obsession: Our Home

It's far from being done. So let's call this a progress report card of sorts. Major construction and renovation has officially ended last week. There are still a lot of tweaking here and there that needs to be taken care of but all in all the Fiance and I are absolutely loving the changes. Of course now we are entering the really exciting part - decorating!

Last Thursday we met with our furniture maker (no more disastrous unopened locks this time around!) I'm glad to say that the meeting went very well and we're just now trying to negotiate the price (although he did give us a pretty good $$$ already, we just wanted to see if we can haggle some more, you never know right?)

So here are some pics from our on-going house project

Dirty Kitchen: We used high gloss white laminates for the cabinets, black granite tiles for the counter top, 60 cm cook top and range hood, noticed that really cute sink - hehe we decided to buy this tiny sink since there's another "dirty kitchen" in the house - that mini sink is basically for washing chicken, as the Fiance puts it. Not featured, the space on the right corner for our refrigerator.

"Clean" Kitchen - For our cabinets and pantry, Wenge laminates were used, White agglomerate stone was chosen for the counter top, bar handles instead of the usual drawer handles, circular sink from Home Depot, Powder Blue graphic coated glass was installed to serve as the splash board. Note: except for the pin lights we haven't shopped for lighting fixtures yet.

We, ok this is all me, I wanted our walk-in closet to have a store feel to it so we asked our dear friend Ricky to install this frameless sliding door. I love the striped graphic coat detail on the glass that we had designed. We initially thought of 3 partitions (clear, frosted, clear) however after having our master's bedroom painted we decided to add the beige stripe detail on the glass. The clear striped part of course is there in order to not block the natural flow of the light onto our room.

It still needs lights, appliances, furnitures and other frou frou items.  I can't wait to fully furnish the place.  Keep you guys posted!
