The weekly story ~ wk 85

Happy Monday to you all... How have you been? July is the start of our summer holidays in Dubai. This means the kids are at home .. *sigh*... and there is constant planning on things to do... 

Well... I'm hoping July will be calmer and I can talk to you about some random decor ideas!!

I've been thinking of giving the home a new look... add some colour to its existing glamour *grins*

So today, I'll show you another little corner of my home.... The little coke bottle came all the way from London... My friends know Im mental about stuff like this...

This is where most guys enjoy their tete-a-tete ... The corner that I call our home bar... *smiles* 

These uncomfortable chairs were intentional ... just so that I didn't have a few anti-social ones... However these hardly deter the dudes from spending hours here...

I designed the big brown cabinet you see at the back... to hold our wine cooler... It does look lovely when the lights are on... pic for another time.. *smiles* Do you like what you see?

Here is my little lamp from IKEA... I love that one.. I got it with the intention to paint... but .. but..

Oh.. and these are from 12 years ago... Our little memento... *smiles* ... They remind me of Nigel (Amit's best buddy).... who is no more... As he raised the toast on our wedding day... he was super nervous... and I simply couldn't help but laugh... *giggles*

I promise to visit you all this week... But in the meanwhile, do pop in and say hello...
