Pinterest Picks | The Bedroom

PP Template

Ahhhhh! Today is finally the day that we talk abut my most favorite room, THE BEDROOM, every introvert’s(me) safe haven. Cozy bedrooms have a special place in my heart because it is the room in a home wherein people reflect, relax and rest in. I think that your bedroom can easily reflect your personality and style all into one, depending how you use items and set them up.

When I think of an ideal bedroom, three things come to mind. Light. Texture. And Pantone shades. Keep in mind that everyone’s preference is different. I personally love to have natural light coming in my room at all times because it generally brightens up my room(duh) and my mood too! 

A room with a variation of textures can help absorb a lot of sound. Especially if your room has huge windows or includes a curtain wall of some sort. And of course, it makes your room extra cozy.

Say goodbye to RGB tones because the future is Pantone! True story! Pantone shades are attractive, easy on the eyes and come in all types of colours, so it can be pretty easy for you to find your favorite.

An element that I like in the photo above, is that they added a furr element to a very rigid set. The texture softens(literally & aesthetically) the space and adds a tad bit of warmth. Although I wouldn’t recommend furr to my asthmatic readers! Tread carefully!

This has got to be my fave photo of this bedroom series. I love the balance of cool and warm tones. I like how the designer focused a lot of the detail on the foreground(floor) with the aztec-esque rug and also comes in as a functional piece because no one wants to step on a cold surface when they wake up.

I am all for neutral shades and the two pieces that I would love to have in my own bedroom would be the bench and the bed itself because the tones make it really easy to mix, match and play with color & patterns. As you can see above, the designer played with the pillows and also had subtle touches of aztec design to it.

The last staple piece that is a MUST in my bedroom is a comfy throw blanket that is always by my side when I binge on some Netflix during the weekends or have breakfast in bed(SHH).

Pinterest Picks | Dining

PP Template

Hey there! Welcome to my second installment of my new monthly segment that are my“Pinterest Picks!”. If you haven’t got the word on this little addition to my blog, check out my first post about this, here! And follow me on Pinterest too! HERE!


This post will be all about the dining room, area or whatever you all call it. But on thing is for sure, is that we all do one thing here and it is EATING! I think a dining space in a home is SO important. It allows families’ to spend time together out of their busy schedules and forces them to sit down and bond. And of course enjoy a good meal together.

I am personally a huge fan of the bohemian/contemporary/earthy design theme. Its easy on the eyes, simple to add in color, whenever and wherever, but also pretty easy to maintain. This design ‘aesthetic’ includes a lot of plants, woody tones and natural material. For example, the photo above shows a hanging hexagonal ceiling lamp in woven rattan and an abaca rug.

Like I said previously, with the use of earthy tones as your base, it is so much easier to add a pop of color whether it be pantone or color blocking-esque. Oh and I love this open concept of a living and dining space. You can tell from the photo above that the space is pretty tiny but they really maximized the space to make everything fit!

This type of dining seating area would work perfectly for long living spaces, plus, I think it would come in useful when you have extra guests coming to stay at your place too! I love the use of the solid would top as a dining table. Its natural form was untouched and the grain is still in good shape! Please also notice how nice the light mustard blends in with the whole set up!

Mixing and matching dining chairs are seriously one of my dining area goals! It makes the dining space feel more laid back and casual. I especially love that the designer in the photo above chose shades of blue and purple to blend in with the light Mahogany finish of the dining table. and the ceiling lamps.

Another key element in a dining space has to definitely be a statement ceiling piece. Preferably something that gives a warm light effect. These lamps can either be semi transparent or something that pins straight down. Find what works best in your space! Although the piece doesn’t have to specifically shout out ‘Notice Me!’, but it has to have certain features in it that make it different for the other pieces in the room.

Pinterest Picks | The Kitchen

Untitled-1

Welcome to my first instalment of my “Pinterest Picks” series! 

I plan to post something interior, architecture and urbanism inspired every first of each month! Since I have mentioned before, that I am a practicing (working) architect by day and truly enjoy perusing around the internet for anything innovative, space spacing and tasteful. This also gives me the chance to open up my Pinterest account to my readers!

So I chose “The Kitchen” as my first area of discussion just because I feel that in my household, the kitchen is where I have a lot of fond memories, eating(duh), secretly eating(tru tho) and learning how to cook. I come from a family of AMAZING cooks and sharing recipes and sending goodies to each other to taste are just one of the few things we love to do for each other in my family.

Whenever I am put to a task of designing spaces, I always like working with a lot of white surfaces and backgrounds. Not only because it makes the space look more clean but also allows you to play with some color when designing. 

When working with white in an interior space, it makes it easier to add a pop of color  and texture as shown below to avoid the glare a bit because too much white can look a bit much at times. The light moss and wood easily balance out the glare of the room and look especially nice tied together with the matte marble counter top.

An area of the kitchen that I ALWAYS look into is the black splash. Right now, I love the idea of a subway tile backsplash with white grouting or maybe hexagonal tiles? They are so easy to tie together with pale or pantone shades as cupboards and solid surface countertops.

Aside from loving the old and rustic warehouse charm, adding a kitchen with white as a base helps brighten up a somewhat preloved space and make it look brand new! I love her the designer of this space just used 3 key elements, white, rustic charm and copper. You never need too many elements to make a space WORK but just a manageable few to balance everything out. Ceiling drop lights also look perfect when point down at a certain thing. As for this photo above, it focuses on the sink.

When it comes to kitchen shelving, I really admire the idea of having open shelving. It allows the user to actually see what they already have, avoid buying more than they need and it just makes it so much easier to find things, to be honest. I love how they used reclaimed wood as shelves! It blends so well with the Italian marble(i’m assuming) and dark green cabinetry.

As for floors, I wouldn’t recommend any porous or cloth type material that’ll easily stain especially near the sink and stove! If you would still want a wood finish without the hassle, there are so much options for synthetic wood planks that look so real in the market that don’t need the extra TLC that real wood needs.

I hope you liked my first try on this “Pinterest Picks” series!

Can you guess what room will be next? Check back on June 1st!
