Operation Redecoration | Phase 1


Color sample from palette #161


- Fri., Dec. 1 | Paint the walls | (29KD) [1] [2]
- Sun., Dec. 3 | Install parquet floor | (136KD)
- Wed., Dec. 6 | Receive the bed | (354KD)
- Sat., Dec. 9 | Receive the desk | (65KD)
- UPDATE: Sat., Dec. 9 | Receive TV/Stereo unit | (128KD)

At first I was very, Very, disappointed when the painter was halfway finishing the room because it didn't look good at all. However, after the whole room got its new color(s) it looks good. But why "good" not "great"? Because I still don't know if it will match the furniture and floor or not. :/

The colors are nice but silver would've rocked with black furniture. Did you paint all your walls that color or did you do like what I did?

But you can always have your sense of design by stenciling designs on your wall with different colors giving it some nice design but way to go it looks nice already!

My old room colors were silver on light navy so I had to change that setup. I have one wall colored in deep green and the 3 others in very light green. Besides, the bed will have small aluminum stands, the parquet floor will have aluminum pads, the desk will have aluminum frame, and soon next month the Bravia LCD will be in pure light grey! So there still is a silver factor. ;)

I have a couple of designs in mind to throw randomly on the wall but I'm hoping they look good.
Thanks.

So far so good, It will all look great once it's finished. But my main concern is that you don't get to sleep in your room for all that time :( When I did my room back home I got a matress and slept on the floor so I won't sleep in any other room.

They've got some nice framed pictures at IKEA (especially the black and white ones) check 'em out for the walls. I saw one in the restaurant that wasn't gurly if that'll be a problem. A car full of people standing on a very steep cliff like they were about to fall, it looked cool.

Good Luck!

Yeah, the colors actually look nice with the parquet floor. Me likey! xD

I will check IKEA's pictures asap but first I want to go reserve that TV/Stereo unit at idDesign!

Thanks and tune in to phase 2. ;)
