Since we just got a piano for beginners for our home, I have been looking around for some decor ideas. I think we need to revamp the living area for a bit to accommodate the new piano. Whole blog-hopping, I found this gorgeous living space at Decor8. I just love the white walls, white flooring and the white furniture with a touch of earth tones from a few items. I am totally smitten by the recycled pallet as coffee table. Perhaps I should paint my walls to white and change the furniture too. The piano is black so it adds a touch of colour to the living area. Let me think about this.

I went on a spring cleaning spree over the weekend. Did the kid’s bedroom and boy does she have a lot of toys, stationery and bags. I cannot believe how many things she has and it is also partly my fault for buying so many things when she does not need them actually. There are many new bags, pouches and note books in her drawers. I did throw some old notes and broken toys into the pull out waste containers. I managed to collect a big bagful of new stationery which I am going to donate to the orphanage. Will spring-clean more this coming weekend.

I am so loving this chalkboard vertical herb garden planter. It is securely mounted to the wall and offers a unique and space-saving method to harvest fresh herbs. It is also a great way to add lush greenery to the kitchen or outdoor area. Just fill it with the herb of your choice and don’t forget to water it. The chalkboard paint finish allows you to label the herbs. Available at Williams-Sonoma.

In order to stay fit and healthy, I run a few times a week. I do it on a threadmill during weekdays and on weekends I try to run outdoor at the park or in the neighbourhood. I try to run longer distance when I am outdoor. Running is a great stress reliever for me. The sound of my breathing helps to clear my mind. Usually when I am under stress, I would go for a run and that calms me down. I just spotted a running tee which I like. I wonder if it is handmade and dri-fit. Funny tee right? I can really relate to that.

Am into culottes these days. It is one of the biggest pants trend this year. Culottes were all over the Spring 2015 runways around the world. This pant is a great alternative to flowing dresses or jumpsuit. What is the best way to wear it? Crop tops and heels would elongate the look. For petite girls, it’s best to keep a shorter hemline.

I love Umbra. I first discovered it when I was staying in Toronto. Their designs are intelligent and beautiful. I love filling my home with Umbra products. I was browsing its website just now and came across this lovely shoe rack called Imelda Shoe Rack (yes you heard the name correctly). I like the minimalist design of this rack which can neatly stack the shoes at the entryway. Besides getting the amplifiers for guitar, I also need a shoe rack like this.

These Geometric prism planter or ornaments are wonderful delicate pieces which look modern. Based on traditional Scandinavian himmeli mobiles, they are often hung in a baby’s room, over dinner table to ensure good harvest, on Christmas tree or inside the house all year round. These Geometric prism are very popular now and often use to hang plants or succulents. Check them out at Etsy.com.
