It's Great to Be Home!


I have been very occupied  with our projects at home.  We just got done with our project at the basement which was building a storage shelving for our seasonal stuff.  I am very pleased to have that done because  all of the things that were scattered in the basement are now  organized.  We also  finished upgrading our powder room and it turned really well. 
We bought some rugs to add some color in our family room, living room, dining room and some of the bedrooms.  The couch you see in this picture is now in o the master's bedroom.  We bought a new couch for the family room.  
We have moved this couch in our master's bedroom.  We  replaced it with a love seat instead.  This is how it looks now.
I love the accent chair that we found at Macy's.  It's perfect for our Asian theme.
The burgundy couch that we moved from  the family room to our master's is now covered with an aqua blue  slip cover.  I think it compliment well with the seasalt color pain on the wall and the  color of our window treatments.  
We have been  moving and re-arranging furniture.  If I can  afford to hire an interior designer, I would   let them do it because they can do it with no problem.  
Our living room has now a different look than these photos.  We finally  agreed on  some arrangement lol.  I will take  some photos of it when I get the chance.  
We love hanging out in the living room because our daughter  always play  Christmas songs on the piano.  We have  decorated for Christmas   the day  before Thanksgiving. I am glad my husband did not object lol..
I got this artificial orchid on sale at TJMaxx.  I put it in the living room at first but then changed my mind and put it in the family room instead.
I love decorating.  I wish I have a proper training  in interior designing, it would have been nice.  If I will be given a chance to  go to school, I would either take interior designing or photography courses because those  are my passions.  For now I will just do what I can and how I see fit for my family.  It doesn't really matter how it looks, the most important thing is we are all comfortable to live in our home.
While waiting for the  slip covers that I bought online, I put the throws on the couch and love seat for the meantime because I don't like the feel of the material of these new furniture that we bought.  All of these moves  was hard because it is us who did it with the help of the kids.  
On another note, I have never gone to a Black Friday sale because I am scared of bracing the cold and the crowd.   We do however try to shop online but this year, I didn't really got the chance to do it because we were  very busy.  I did looked at musians friends website to see if they have good deals on  electric guitar  but I didn't have a luck.  My husband and I  went to Center for Music and Arts but they didn't have a stock of the one that we like.  We will go back there  next week to see if they have it already.
