Imagination Vs Reality

You recall I dreamt of this before seeing my flat again after only viewing it once the first time.


Well as you can see I thought I could still fit in another couch, and a dining room table. Thought my wooden parquet flooring under the carpet would be light. Couldn’t find a white shaggy carpet or beautiful moroccan berber carpet yet, but one win was decided to give up on the idea of having a R4400 Brass At Home Coffee Table and thrifted a second hand one for R150!!!  So here is the reality of my lounge at this stage…

After making plans with my Uncle and now semi putting those ideas in Powerpoint… This is the ultimate of all my ideas put together sort of..


Now if we say paint those white cupboards Navy 🙂 Voila!


Final kitchen to be added when done, today only countertops ordered and beginning on working on boxes.

Designing, Waiting, Designing, Waiting…

On 5 August I found out the place the bond came through, it is now October, and I will only be moving in November, and I have not been able to view the place again to get measurements due to the tenant being sick. This means I plan and plan and plan without really knowing so much what to work with, but finding flats on and pics that is similiar to my palce and scans of my own furniture that I can use. This is two ideas I came up with tonight for my lounge…

The first is the rug from Airloom I can afford and is kinda going with the spring/summer look and in fashion artsy colours.


Look 2 is after playing with picture one, and adding my original idea of having a white rug, and the soft pinks and brass things, and found this ammmmaaazzzzzing coffee table at At Home. Need to go to Morocco and buy me some furniture there! Now that I have altered it I realise pic two is really me!


Additional ideas I saw:

Brass Rods on Special at Game for the Curtains…
