home decor ideas for the future

As I've said, this blog will serve as a repository of great ideas, wonderful discoveries, bits of wisdom and what-not that I stumble upon in my everyday life.

One of our goals is to have (or rather, mortgage) our small dream house someday (hopefully, within three to five years) so i'm now collecting great home decor ideas, just in case. Dreams do come true! :-)

Magnetic chalkboard wall

I was browsing wordpress when I stumbled upon a post by cottage life living on chalk board wall. It seems like a good idea for a home (hubby is also fond of magnets). This is much like the chalkboard in Starbucks where they scribble the special of the day or something like that. But as a bonus, it is also magnetic so you can stick on anything attractive on it such as frames, fridge magnets or pictures with magnetic tape. It can also serve as a vandal board for the family.

eHow has instructions on how to do it.

Other ideas, which I got from deal grocer are:

Contemporary FLOS can can pendant lamp

The lamp is created by FLOS, a famed italian brand (which explains the original price of Php22,000). It flaunts a sleek, stylish dome finished in glossy refinement plus a festive filigree design as a surprise underneath.

Inspired by minimalist lines and clean silhouettes, this lamp is a hot accessory! It will surely add drama and sophistication to my dream kitchen. Dream on!

It is distributed by Steltz International, C218 2nd Floor Serendra Fort Bonifacio (459-0088).

Customizable decorative mirror with photo frames by Grassroots

This is a mirror with quirky photo frames. Since i'm fond of pictures, this will be a cool, fun and standout way of showcasing a number of them. It's a bit pricey at P24,999 but there could be small shops out there that can also make the same product at a lower price.

Grassroots has a store at 3rd Floor in Glorietta 5. Contact no. 501 3980.

When I was in high school, I used to dream of becoming an interior designer or fashion designer. I ended up being a CPA, like my parents. Just saying.
