dreaming....

felt a bit better today and so we continued with our quest :
to shop for furnitures.

i would say that we have been to most of the places for furnitures.
aberdeen, kowloon bay, wanchai, mongkok, north point, causeway bay....
but we still weren't able to find what we have in mind....

what i find is that most of the shops carry almost identical pieces...  very boring and very standard.
i feel that choices are very limited....   hmmm

and even the communication with our contractor is quite a bit of a problem....
especially with the stuff that i want ~~ vintage / shabby chic look.
he said to me, "what is worn out / shabby chic to me may not be worn out / shabby chic to you.  i don't think i can create the look you want."
fine ~ give me some sand paper and brush...  i will make the look myself!  haha

if we continued with the progress made so far, we may have to live without furnitures for awhile! uhmm....

if and only if i could just point at what i see and like in the online shops.....
these are some of the items i would like to have:
 


actually, we saw a similar one today.....  the sales person said it has that vintage-look...
i.e. not as smooth and nice as the one in the picture above.
sounds perfect...  but will have to wait for the chair to be taken out from the storage to confirm....

and i love the door at the back....







a vintage dressform with letters.....
the key thing to me is the letters...
i saw some but none of them has letters....
and i love the wooden doors / planes at the back....







vintage door in pink with floral patterns!  how cute!


only in my dreams....
