House Tour - A slice of our home {Living Room}

My last post about home decor {house tour} was in our small condo in Florida. We are actually living in New York permanently. To be honest; I was a little hesitant in posting about our homes. I do not know why; since I love home decor very much. Perhaps I was not ready just yet. And now I am going to show you a small corners of our small living room condo in New York. 

This condo has been on the market for sale for more than 2 years now. Long story short we almost sold the house a year a go; but it did not go through.

I was under an emotional roller coaster ride for a little while because of that since I was so desperate wanted to move into a bigger home. I am dying to have a studio; a working space of my own. Right now our computer room/guest bedroom is also my working room. And now I am  accepting the fact that we will not be moving into our new home any time soon. So we are still living in the same house.

As you can see I love grouping small bottles with flowers as a center piece. These small tinted blue bottles was last seen {here}. From time to time I change the display on the tray just for fun. And the tray was made by hand by me and last seen {here}.

Well, those are small corners of our living room in New York. Next time I am going to reveal other corners and the kitchen. 


Have a wonderful week-end Everyone! And thank you so much for stopping by!

House Tour {Living Room + Dining Area}

Decorating this home has been so much fun and very easy because it is a small home.  We want this house to be casual and not need much maintenance since we only come here 5 or 6  time each year.

One thing that I love about being here in Delray Beach, Florida is that there are so many thrift stores in the area.  So  I wanted to test my skill of a DIY projects for this home. 'Blue' seems to be the right choice for the interior color since this is Florida; the state always with blue sky and beaches.

I re-painted the end table on the left {here}. I sprayed painted the two brass pears on the end table on the right {here}

I love gold accent in an interior and here I purposely chose gold frames for my gouache art works as an accent of the bluish interior.

The table runner was a rubber stamped DIY {here}

The dining set came with the house.  I am thinking to re-paint the chair white but I am going to leave them as they are for now.

 Remember the 'brass jewelry embellishment wall decor' under the sun burst I posted not long a go? {here}.

Thank you so much for stopping by !
 Have a lovely week end Everyone !

House Tour {Master Bedroom Makeover Revealed}

I am relieved that the master bedroom makeover has finally done. I must say that I really love the makeover. Now you can see the entire section of the room where the bed is. I sewn the curtain and throw pillow cases. And do you see the small monogrammed pillow with our initials on it? (Tutorial; here). And do you see that the DIY table lamp and it's shade  is a little larger than the other one? (Tutorial; here)

I love the look of the two swag brass leaves on top of the paintings. I was not quite sure what to do with it. I bought it at an antique store in Delray. Do you know what are they supposed to be?  I also love the paintings. The two paintings on the sides are my painting. The frames were very old but I repainted part of the frame with white color. I think I love the combination of white and gold a bit much!

I love the colorful African beaded doll; she is cute and adorable!

We bought the area rug at Home Goods and are still debating if we are going to keep it. My husband 'Steven' is not happy with it, but I like it!

I am so in love with the glass vase on the right. It has a lid. I bought them just yesterday at another thrift store in Delray. I love clear etched glass jar; I think it's  elegant. I bought two of them for USD 10.00.  I  am using the other jar  to put  jewelries on the vanity table. The vanity need a little make over and styling so I will post it some other time. 

Thank you for reading!
