Amairah

Well it's been an awfully long time and what does one say after such a long break!! I hoped to share many home makeover ideas but sadly that didn't happen and the longer I stayed away the harder it became to get back!

Meanwhile in the real world we had a baby girl who is 9 months old!! Seriously where did all the time go??!! Seems just like yesterday we were going through all the complications with my pregnancy and now baby A is almost a year old! And though they say the first year is the hardest, its been anything but!:)

Some favorite posts from around the world!

Love this!

Drawing room makeover

This post is for a dear friend who has just undergone surgery and is not in a position to come see the changes we've made to the room! So here goes!

After many months of toying with the idea of changing our sofa versus reupholstering the old one, we went with the latter and have just got them done! Those familiar with the earlier room would agree that there is quite a difference!

S & me are expecting our first born in a few months.. Almost in the home stretch now! All my energies are being channeled into the baby room.. More pics to follow soon!

Get well soon R!

Painted Headboard!

 Taking inspiration from the painted wallpaper tutorial from Jones Design Company,  http://jonesdesigncompany.com/decorate/painted-wallpaper-a-tutorial/, I decided to try it on our plain fabric head board in the guest bedroom. It is my first attempt at painting and the lines are not absolutely perfect. Also the grey looks too dark and I should have maybe gone for a lighter colour keeping with the theme of the room! well anyway..here's to first attempts and tons of learning!

The head board in it's original form..my husband cannot understand why I would wanna take a perfect piece of furniture to try my stunts!:)

Weekend!

It's the weekend and it's great to have the hubby at home:) If you know my husband you would  know he hates going to unfamiliar places, specially if it involves markets and crowded areas:) But this week he took me to a lil place quite out of the way, on the recommendation of a stranger, to a craft market and we found a row of some pretty interesting shops! And I managed to find quite a few supplies to get started! Yaaay! Have a great weekend everyone!xx
