Weekend

The weekend was spent driving around with the kids, visiting furniture stores and marine aquariums. I hope to finalise on the purchases quickly so that I can resume my Sunday morning exercise regime.
.
Shopping makes one hungry, thirsty and bored. So in between shopping, we eat, drink and get fat. I am looking forward to doing housework actually because I'll get a good workout while mopping and cleaning.
.
As we see more and more furniture, we veer away from our original ideas. I like quirky but the kids prefer sleek and contemporary, so our tastes clash that way. Somehow we'll manage to find the middle-path. YK has pretty good taste, so he's in charge of the living and dining areas but he mustn't meddle with my bedroom. I'll take charge of the beds, patio and other areas. SK? All he wants is a bean bag!


At least we can all agree on this curvy Calypso sofa set. The suede-like fabric is actually in black though it appears purplish in the photo.

The kids like this extendable coffee table because it goes so well with the curvy sofa but I'm not so sure about this....

I like this coffee table with a black top and silver base.

We still can't agree on the dining set. YK loves it because of the see-through glass top, and alternating clear and frosted glass panel below where he can store interesting knick-knacks. I find the legs too chunky and short (like mine). Haha!

That's a NICE sofa set and coffee table and dining table. :-)))) I'm not good at mix-and-match (I've seen my "design" when playing The Sims and hubby has a MUCH better taste) HA HA HA HA...

HAVE FUN deciding and filling up your new homeeeee he he he...

Funky stuff - I like! Glass top tables together with kids always make me nervous though. Though yours are probably much better behaved. :)

shello said...

how exciting! interesting rug under the coffee table with a reflective top, looks like hay - love it!

The Real Mother Hen said...

Wow, nice and tredy! :)
YK has good taste, I'm sure it will all go well :)

JYankee said...

how funny...but it looks like you'Re looking at some cool stuff..it'll come together...as long as ONE person is in charge of ONE room and you don't have styles clashing in the same room!

Blur Ting said...

Yah Amel. Choosing furniture is fun. If only we don't have to pay for it too.

Blur Ting said...

Mooiness - Thanks for bringing that up. It didn't cross my mind actually. You won't believe it but my kids like to chase Rusty around the house and they may just knock stuff over.

Blur Ting said...

Hi Shello! You've got a new identity :-) I love these shaggy rugs too. I'm sure Rusty would love it even more and add more fur onto it. I need a good strong vacuum cleaner!

Blur Ting said...

MH - He also has expensive taste :-(

Blur Ting said...

JY - Too many cooks will spoil the broth. I don't really mind what furniture he choose as long as I don't have to paint the walls black. I love a bright, airy house, not a dark cave!

Amel's Realm said...

HA HA HA HA HA HA...I know what you mean!!! When I play The Sims, I LOVE cheating to get more Simoleons so that I can furnish my Sim's house with all the BEST furniture EVER HI HI HI HI HI...

And furniture isn't cheap, either, eh? But anyway, hope you'll get everything you want within your budget! ;-D

The World According To Me said...

How exciting, choosing furniture! Pity you have to pay for it though, hey!

I love the sofa and the black and white dinner set on the glass table.

shello said...

ah yes..my identity is out :)
LOL on the dark cave comment :D

Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for
a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks!

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm
looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm
looking for something completely unique.
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
