I got some great looking home decor items in Scandinavia to add to my favorite corner (the “animal farm” as a girlfriend described) at home. Check them out!
1) Birdies
2) Another group of Birdies

3) Elephants

p.s. I think I might need to find another place in my house to fit all these new addition.

My Favorite Corner @ Home

I love home decor and travel. I fill up a corner of my house with all the home decor items that I purchased when I traveled. Some of these items are from Sweden and Taiwan. Can you guess which items are from Sweden? from Taiwan?

Beatles brings me joy March 3, 2010

Filed under: Home — vivaliving @ 7:38 pm

I love the early work of Beatles. Every time after I hear Beatles’ songs, I will feel happy and energize. I can’t explain why. These tile artwork have all four Beatles members on them. They are for sale in one of my favorites home furishing stores. I like these artwork a lot, but I wonder who has a big house to put these tile artwork. I know that I am not going to be the owner of this artwork, but I want to be able to look at them once in a while. I decided to take pictures of these tile artwork so that I can enjoy these artwork whenever I want to.

My house is located on the top of a cliff. I can sit in my living room to enjoy a very nice view of the ocean and the sky. I captured these amazing pictures an afternoon before sunset. These pictures look so surreal.

Picture wall

I am soooo into Design and Architecture, expecially mid-century modern architecture and furishing. If you have been to my home, you must have a chance to meet with my Modernica orange and army green rocker armchairs. I am so proud to be the owner of these comfortable and wonderful designed chairs. Two of my girl friends (you know who you are) got the same chair (but different color) after they tried mine at my place.

I also love Home Decor. My recent project is a picture wall. You can find my favorite artists’ work on this wall. The artists include Carrie Chau, Blanca Gomez, Askey Illustration, 10 Swedish designers, and Viva! Living (yes, the red square fabric boxes are my creation). I stapled the red color 10 designers fabric that I got from my Stockholm trip to a 10X10 canvas board to come up with these art work. They look awesome to me. What do you think?

After three long months, my first out of five Hyacinth bulbs is finally blooming. I am so happy to see the green buds change to pink color. It looks so elegant. What do you think?
