Oh Such Happy Colors and My Recent Fab Finds

happy colors

Today is exactly my 37th week of pregnancy and that means I’m already full term. I really hope we can see our new bundle of joy next week.  So, exciting!

And since there’s a new girl joining the family soon, I really want to inject more bright colors into our home. And now having a balance in gender (2 boys and 2 girls) means I can add more pink, coral and orange. It’s taking me quite slow to achieve though because I don’t go out a lot and it’s hard to find fabrics with the colors and patterns that I want. That’s why I was so glad when I found these cute and really cheap throw pillow covers in Landmark Department Store more than a month ago.

Also, in the picture are three of my fab finds. I wanted to add greens in the house but I still don’t have the guts to go for live ones for fear I’m gonna kill it again (waste of money). Artificial ones from the malls cost P3,000-4,000+ each. Uh, no thanks! So when I went to Mandaue Foam (Quezon Avenue Branch) after our Tagaytay break to buy a rug, taking advantage of their annual sale, I found this artificial plant for P1,500 with 30% off. I bought it without second thoughts since I already scored the bamboo rug (160 cm x 220 cm) for P1,750.00. I originally had a budget of  P3,500 for a jute rug which I was waiting to be on sale in Landmark, but now I know better. I’m going to wait for Mandaue Foam’s sale so I can buy a rug for the dining room and Bryce’s room and more artificial plants for our house.


By the way,  the native pouf was from Silang, Cavite. If you are on your way to Tagaytay, you surely wouldn’t miss the stores on either side of the street that sells reclaimed woods and antique furniture. Keep on the watch for this store on the left side of the road (on your right if you’re on your way back to Manila). It is the only store (I found so far) that sells banig ottomans, basket and bags. I asked for the store’s name, but unfortunately, I forgot. It’s no use though even if I told you the name because it wasn’t displayed on the store anyway. Just keep your eyes open if you want to buy one. I bought the medium one for P700 (haggled from P750).

Anyway, here are some interior pics with such happy colors. I wish someday we would have a sun-filled house so I can have white walls and plenty of brightly colored furniture and accessories to go with it.

happ2Have a happy, colorful weekend!

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
