Dedicated to simple decor ideas - especially in white! - inspiration for living simply, reusing what you have, and scouring for vintage or thrifted finds. Some of my own DIY projects described here too.

Compleated cabinet project
Originally, this cabinet was a very dark brown as evidenced by the frame inside the glass. Its also a super find - it came from my neighbour across the hall for a song. First, I primed it, and then painted it with CIL Real Life latex in Cottage White (Behr tint 1813). By the way, I found this paint very easy to work with as it spreads evenly and is not prone to dripping. The fresh coat of paint gives the cabinet a new lease on life and I enjoy its presence more as it brightnes my living space.
As a sociologist, I have always been interested in how our we are affected by what surrounds us. Our home is so deeply personal, and has such potential to give us happiness, calm, and refuge. Home has become even more important to me since becoming a mother of 2. Currently, I adore homes that play with light, white, texture, nature and bits of colour.
These days blogging happens when my hubby is on holidays and get a sense of renewed energy and creativity to carry on.
