I love throw pillows as much as I love sofas. At the moment, I am fixated with polka dots. At home right now, my throw pillows are in purple and white polka dots. For a time I was also obsessed with stripes then I found these really cute animal printed throw pillows in very delightful colors at www.zalora.com .
Hand printed in Lithuania, this Zebra Pillow from Dwell Studio Home brings a surprise to every home. I’m sure kids will love this in their rooms and even kids at heart too.
Once upon a time, I lived in a semi-posh subdivision in the city…gated and with "manong guards" at the 2 entrances and "manong guards" roaming around at night. We have neighbors whose homes are massive and there was this one house which I adore simply because there were gigantic palm trees on its frontyard, so Beverly Hillishhhhh…I like! So I told myself, one day I want to live in a house where there are giant palm trees on the frontyard.
Fast forward…after 3 years.
Yes, this is a view of my frontyard. I have loads of gigantic palm-like trees (date trees). Wishes do come true! Mind you, at the back of my mind when I made that wish 3 years ago was…I want a front yard with gigantic palm trees in a posh subdivision not in the Land of the Kaugahan.
But I am still very thankful for all the blessings that I have received including these gigantic date trees. Next time I will be very specific.
2011 is about to end, what were your specific plans, goals and wishes that came true this year?
Lately Rolex and I have been talking about homes,houses & lots, condominiums and infinity pools…with S para marami…haha! Being here in the “Land of Kaugahan” is a no-permanent-thing. As they say, “You can never can tell” what the future brings. So basically we are on a temporary-living-basis. We really do not have a choice but to make use and be comfortable with furnishings that are cheap and something that if you can not sell, you wouldn’t mind throwing (ooops!). I was telling him, I wish someday we will have our own nook, somewhere I know we will live for the rest of our lives so you wouldn’t mind decorating with the stuff you love to have which may come cheap or with a price tag…
Here are some of the furnishings I want ( not necessarily, will have ) in our living room:

I love these sofas…pwedeng bed na rin. Ayan, kanya-kanya tayong bed. Sofas should be comfy because we just don’t sit on it, we end up lying on it.

This ottoman is so “otto-woman”…very dressy in a fabric which is sort of a jersey!

Not the dog but the artistic portrait…”of myself ” in my own house. Wala naman sigurong kokontra. Pipilitin ko si Rolex to take my photo. PS. I love dogs but I am not just sure if I can be a responsible pet owner.

I would love to have at least one chandelier hanging on the ceiling. Peg ko ang high ceilings kaya medyo matayog ang bagsak ng mga dangling lights na eto. Lighting serves a major role in setting up the mood in your homes.

This crystal lamp is also very classy. I want to have loads of regulated lighting effects at home. I want more lamps (incandescent). Di na talaga ako bibili ng bag, mag-iipon na ako para sa mga lamps and chandeliers na yan!

I think having a photo wall is a nice idea. Here, I can display the travel photographs of the great places we’ve been to. Impossible naman na malibot namin ang buong mundo so hindi mapupuno ang wall if ever…parang nakakalula naman kung puro picture na lang…dagdagan mo pa ng gigantic self-portrait ko!choz!
One of my frustrations is not learning how to play the piano…one day I want to have one in our home…I know mahal ang grand piano so kahit second-hand vintage piano, im so fine with that. Rolex can play the piano though he’s not good at it kasi when he was younger eskapo ang drama nya kapag piano session na with Nanay Esther.
I love both modern and classic, new and vintage…I don’t want a specific theme, I want clutter-free space because I have a tendency to turn them into a warehouse (bodega), I want comfort and something artsy! These are the basics I want my living room to have: comfy sofa, sushal na ottoman (where I can put books/magazines ang guests can sit at the same time), gigantic self-portrait, a chandelier + loads of lamp shades, travel photo wall and a piano.
Speaking of infinity pools…dont you just love to have a view of the infinity pool from your living room?
