Beads

August 13, 2011

The earthiness of this simple design is made memorable with the accent of beads by the window. I have an idea where I can find these sort of beads and the photo of this place – just got my creative juices flowing. Viva la beads!

Take a reverie with me if you will, to an idyllic afternoon with nothing in your mind. But just before you hit this boudoir, imagine a Saturday afternoon just right after having your perfect weekend lunch and your most preferred dessert. Then you are invited to help yourself with a nap in this vision of linen and lull; you are to relax and for a few hours – drift away to dreamland where there are no chores, no obligations and no worries. Stripped off of life’s complications and into this cool and comfortable minimalist’s boudoir. 

Mi Casa, Mi Casa!

Mi Casa! Mi Casa!

Pero, solo en mi sueños 😦

When I saw this photo of a concrete house nestled in the forest that was airy, open and modern; I thought this is what I want to live in for the rest of my life. Not such a large square-footage where my soon-to-be arthritic hands will not be able to clean all the nooks and corners, but with high ceilings to preclude claustrophobia, wood floors for easier cleaning and a capable kitchen. But wait, I need to see the bed and bath before I sign up. ;-).

A perfect vision of my dream bedroom! White, airy, spacious, beams, serene, minimal, king-sized bed, nature’s view, windows all around, simple accents, modern yet rustic. Please, oh please? may I?

Orbs

December 22, 2010

It would be a waste of orbs if this picture will not be featured whist in the month of December here at Ce Lieu. The way the orbs are irregularly placed in this hallway and how the web appearance of the orbs’ design reflects from inside then all over the walls gives a very modern, artistic look and is cool in my book.

Loving whites, minimalist design, concrete and streamlined features in a home, this photo has made me admire how the designers and architects played with this space. With these orbs hanging all year-round, if this were my abode, it would be Christmas everyday!

Sterile

November 27, 2010

I understand that some people will be appalled with this sterility. But as for me, if I woke up to this vision coming down from my bedroom, on to the kitchen to prep my work lunch and coffee to go; everyday would be a therapeutic day.

I love the asymmetry and the unpredictability of the house’s structure because it contrasts the white all around which many people take as boring. The minimalist attributes ties the whole ensemble and would everyday remind me to de-clutter, mentally and environmentally. Yes, if it were mine, I might put an accent piece or 2, but I dare say – this is like living somewhere where everyday – there is a sense of serenity and renewal, even if outside the door stands the guaranteed immediate chaos of the day.
