I'm finally getting down to piecing the new room together. Yet again, nothing is ever as simple as one thinks. After surviving with practically nothing for a month, you'd think I'll have figured it all out. The design, the colours, the storage solutions... even after what I thought was exactly what I wanted, I am still having second thoughts. I'm becoming like mom, I'm beating myself for the uncertainty and indecisiveness.

Lis popped over with Bernard yesterday and instantly threw out so many great ideas. One of which was something I never really considered - putting the sleeping area toward the far end of the room. From Day 1, I had wanted to make that area my study and work space. Lis was quick to comment, "Obviously shows where your priorities lie"! Haha, I so get her! We analysed feng shui positions, sunlight directions... private spaces.

Even today, we were still throwing ideas through the phone.
For every pro in a design, there's bound to be a con! I swear it's so annoying!

These are the 2 possible design ideas:
Option A

From www.natashayong.com

From www.natashayong.com

This design has the bed snugged away near the window with a possible low partition to separate the 'hall' and the 'bedroom'.

Pros:
- Private sleeping area
- Customised ceiling to floor wardrobe, storage solutions and TV console

Cons:
- Lights, fan and cable points have to be relocated
- Unable to watch TV from bed (yes, I know I have a sofa... but it's different...)
- Slightly higher cost



Option B

This option has the study / work area separated.

Pros:
- Private study / work area
- Furniture are not built-in, provides option to move or reuse things
- Able to view TV console from all angles

Cons:
- Bed is obvious upon entering the room
- Afternoon sun make study area warm and glaring
- Wasted space on TV console wall

Lis gave some really cool ideas on texture of the curtains to bold wallpaper designs. It got me excited, but at the same time I really don't want to burst my budget which is already on the high side. I'm watching my dollars and cents. So when James suggested that I pick up a S$250 3 Day F1 Grandstand pass... I figured that money could buy me a new bed.

Any comments or suggestions on the designs / concepts are most welcomed. ;)

  2. Option A :)

    It's organised. There's a beginning and an end, a smooth sequential flow and provides ease of movement.

    maybe when u have the cash again: for the sofa you may like to trade it for an armchair that - when u push back - its bottom extends to a leg-rest? There's space to add a cushion or two for guests so ok la :)
