Planning home interior design

We got a word from developer that our new house would be ready in September and probably handover in November. And that is like 5 months down the road. We didn’t expect the house to be ready this year, but we are happy to hear the news anyway.

So it means that soon we will have the keys to our house and we can start to refurbish and move in thereafter. Gosh. It is time to plan the design, choose the right furniture, get contractor to do some electrical and interior renovation for us etc. I understand that it is not an easy task when it comes to designing the interior of the house. At first hubby thought of getting an interior designer to come up with design, but after much discussion, I think we will do it ourselves. Reading home magazines and books and searching through those useful websites help us in molding the design of what we want for our house. We shall keep it simple and practical since we have young children. Not many furniture, everything will be kept simple and basic.

Don’t think we are in time to move in for Chinese New Year but hubby was saying the other day that he is planning to move in for CNY since my parents-in-law would be celebrating in Kuching next year. Oh dear! Looks like a lot of things to plan, think and survey, I don't know where to start. With baby on the way, it looks like a busy year end for me. But I am definitely looking forward to decorate my own house, may it be before or after CNY.

If you're looking for peace and relaxing I suggest (given the current colors) to go with something beach-themed. Get pictures of the ocean - things that calm and inspire you. You can take glass vases and fill them with inexpensive craft sand and some sea shells. I also browse the clearance racks at Bed, Bath and Beyond & Linens and Things for cheap ways to update my decor.for more ifo visit at http://www.shopdownlite.com/tommy_bahama_bedding.php
