Ravenia#2 : when bedroom turns to be living room


The room area is 2,5m x 3m. I’ve added 2 additional windows on the side wall so we can see the sideyard garden. Non-smoking guest can breathe the fresh air. For the smoked guest, these additional windows will help to blow the smoke away from this room. Yes, hate to say that the hubby smokes.

Why I dont keep it as bedroom? Because the area is too small. I cant see any floor to step on, when our queen-sized bed inside. Then I choose to turn it into livingroom. I think it’s suitable to meet formal guest, since we will not be visited by guests everyday. So a small room is quite enough. One day if we have high frequency of visitation, we will consider to make this room larger.

I add new door for the guests’ access so they can go directly to this room.
AS this room is quite small, then I give mirror so it will reflect all things in this room and will make the room looks bigger.

I dont use sofa for this small room, because it will take alot of space of this room. Then I choose benches for seat, they help the room look bigger. The table is higher than benches, adapted from cafe.
The benches inspiration is like below image.

I’m not certain when applying purple as the color theme of this room since the dark color usually will impress that room is smaller. You may check the color phychology here. But, thanks to mirror, no matter dark color I will use, the room is still larger that its original :D.



That’s my living room inspiration. How about yours ?


Ravenia#2 : the front side changes


As per previous post, I want to give you the details for each changes I’ve planned. Let’s talk about the point#1 :

Move the front door & window location. If it stay on its original position, I think it is not nice there’re 2 doors side by side. I dont want to move it to the middle of the front wall, since the back door on the back wall is in the middle too. It’s not good based on some tradition when the front door and the back door in 1 straight line, some old man said our luck would come and go easily.

for front side, I move the original door+window and also add new door for living room access. Livingroom is aimed for meeting the formal guest, while the-moved-door is for close family or relative or friend or other informal guests.

I’m still using the window because I am going to open eletricity locket, so they can buy the ‘token’ through the window.

The Front side is one of exterior sides should be decorated & protected due to weather changes from rain and moisture. Searching and find this paint. This paint has special technology, called Elastoshield technology so the wall is maximum-protected. Elastoshield technology not only protects our exterior by covering the hairy cracking, but also perfect protection from rain-sunshine.

Hm… for the front side I’ve changed, I love to use the Renada color, so soft.

Another changes is prolonging the terrace (showed as the red floor) to be full approximalely 3m length for access another room beside the living room. It’s also a path  for motorcycle when the hubby go home with his motorcycle. The motorcycle should be stored inside to avoid motorcycle theft.

So where is the carport? Since we haven’t had the car yet, I haven’t designed the carport area :D.

Stay tuned for the sequel. Keep dress your house up!

Have a nice day.
