Home Make Over

I love the new color motif of our living room and dining room.  It's bold and bright! It's an orange themed living and dining room. 

The color motif is actually a combination of white, orange and black.  That's why you would see that these are the dominant colors here.  Even the carpet is a combination of black and white.  The bean bags are reupholstered with white leather and our living room sofa was reupholstered with black leather, as well with matching orange and white throw pillows as accent.

The wall unit which functions as a divider between the living room and dining room was designed and fabricated as per our requirement.  This is actually a "back to back" wall unit.  The two posts were painted yellow orange and the middle part is actually a textured wood.  The design of the textured wood though cannot be seen clearly from the picture and only appears as a plain white wood. A special light (blue colored) was installed to illuminate the wall unit at night for a special effect.

The family loves to watch TV wherever they are in the house so they decided that the "back to back" wall unit will also house a two LCD TV screen.  One for the living room and one for the dining room.  Kids never really want to miss  their favorite TV program even while dining.  Thus, this is the outcome!

The wall unit was especially fabricated with a secret compartment to hide all the cable boxes, wiring and outlets.  I'm sick and tired of seeing scattered electrical wiring all over the area.  It's really sickening to the eyes, thus I promise myself that if I have to reinvent the house, I would definitely find a way to hide all those unsightly wiring and electrical outlets.  With this design, after you close this secret compartment, you cannot see any piece of electrical wire scattered on the flooring or hanging somewhere.  Whooo....what a 

So, that's it! I just gave you a glimpse of our humble place after it has undergone a transformation from the traditional to a bit of modern design.

But knowing myself, I would still definitely add a bit of design and finishing touches when I get back home for my next vacation.
