OUR HOME :)

our little place we call home... :)

i always know what i want.
since back then, i am always The Planner.
from now on, 'I' work as 'We'.. so 'I' cannot be 'I' anymore...
hahaha

We went scouting for furniture since Spetember (2months before our wedding).
Listed down what we need and want for our mini home.

There are series of various aspects to contemplate when choosing our home furniture:

1) how comfy they are
- huggable cushions on a 3 seater couch.. :)
- two chairs with back and arm rests...
- couch is sooo important for us two so we can spend our weekends watching tv togetha comfortably (ada weekend ke aku ni? he-he)... so ya, we invested a little more on the couch.
(i pilih, he bayar haha)


2) the color
- white or grey
- we want our home to be clean,... or at least appear clean :)
so if u bring ur kids, pls make sure they don't doodle on our white furniture or wall ya? ;p

3) the size
- no bulky furniture
- our home is small, 1100sqft, i cannot buy furniture like mum. well, i cannot spend like mum.
we cannot stay in a home like mum's bcoz there's just us two
(hakikatnya belum mampu lagi uols! not there yet....)
Mula hidup as husband and wife, so we can't be lavish... no more biggie homie for me nymore.
i am miss independent! an small apartment for us two is more than enough.. alhamdulillah :)

++++++++++

the only problem i have now is choosing curtains. curtains give me headache!
we want diff types of curtains for every space.
not so dark at the hall -- sheer curtains probably.
sunshine can't go through at our personal space ;p haha

next, to choose a filler color, bagi naik seri hall ;p --- we have white and grey furniture.
so we're still disccussing whether to add purple or yellow .. what say u? :)

then, to buy home deco -- vases, flowers, paintings.

Alhamdulillah...

can't wait to officially move in! :))

TIPS:
1) Jangan rambang mata. Beli apa yang ada dalam list asal sahaja.
2) Furniture are not curtains, u don't change annually (unless banyak duit)... so since furniture are not curtains or bed sheets, we promised to ourselves furniture 5 tahun baru tukar :) so, why not invest a little more on the quality.
3) back to point one, stick to ur / our budget. ours-- mmg we both tetapkan no more than RM15k... strictly. no more than that. sentiasa ingatkan each other jangan rambang mata.... ini pecahan yang both of us buat:
- hall RM4k
- dining / kitchen RM2k
- room RM2k
- deco (curtains / carpets / vases/ flowers / rack/ etc... ) RM3k
- electrical goods ( TV/ Fridge/ Washer ) RM4k
== alhamdulillah byk electrical goods and barang dapur dapat hadiah dr families n friends. tq~==


Happy planning newly weds!!!
