The keys

So our keys were finally ready for collection! :D 
Our unit was actually ready since April but because we've been procrastinating, we only got down to preparing the relevant documents beginning of this month. We probably wouldn't have done anything if not for the multiple "reminders" from our developer. Thought long and hard if I should share the renovation process here but since I received multiple emails (On ID recommendations) from a few of my readers on Dayre, I decided to blog about the process here! (Largely also because J is agreeable to it :P Because afterall it is a private space we will share) 

& I present to your our humble 5 room DBSS unit - 1184sqf (: It is actually already in a move-in condition and we were struggling between simply moving in (We'll actually be selling/renting the unit after 5 years - The minimum requirement to sell a first hand HDB) or giving it a whole new look (Ideal theme would be Scandinavian x Industrial). Went with the latter because I just don't want to make do. 5 years is a pretty long time! 

Boy admiring the "view" from our balcony hahaha. 
Probably going to do decking at the balcony then add a dining table for outdoor dining? Still open to options. 

No idea what this little glass panels were supposed to be for? It looks like those openings for restaurants to pass food out from the kitchen :| I've always liked the idea of a kitchen island in the kitchen (Like at my parent's place) so we'll probably be hacking half the wall and increasing the height for an extended table top/ bar counter. (Closest I will get to a kitchen island because the kitchen is too small) 

Now you believe me? Hahaha! Super claustrophobic.
Lucky for us the kitchen is furnished with white/wood cabinets so we can probably keep them since it will go with our theme. 

This floor.. Needs a change? 

Would like a feature wall in the living or dining area! 
Haven't decided if we want white bricks or cement screed wall though. 
Shall wait for the 3D drawings before we decide. 

Parquet flooring in the bedroom, Sheila approved! Haha this one can keep. 

Master bedroom with a mini balcony
Open to ideas from our IDs for this one. 

Intending to change the doors to sliding door.

The cabinets that comes with the room - very nicely done up and its a pity we have to hack it away since we'll already be turning bedroom 2 into a walk-in wardrobe. 

The common bathroom.
The first thing J said when he opened the toilet door, (I quote him word for word) "Whoa, the toilet flooring must change". The other stuff, I think we can keep? 

So this pretty much sums up the house "tour". Hope I didn't bore you out with my rants :P We'll be meeting a few IDs the coming week to view the 3D drawings so I'll do an update again soon (: 

Some OOTD pictures before I sign out! 

Dressed in Hollyhoque Utterly Flutter Top - Blue and upcoming skorts for comfort that day. It was scorching hot and I was so glad to be in a loose and airy sleeveless top that can be worn 2 ways - With off shoulder sleeves or as a simple spag top with flutter details at the side.
