Hello! I got the inspiration from Donna's Lavender Nest, for her post Where Bloggers Create 2012. And finally I end up on a beautiful blog belong to Karen from my desertcottage for her beautiful white washed shabby chic looking working space that she has, click here to see the photos collection on her blog.
So I was so inspired by them, so I quickly grabbed my LumixG2 and start snapping these pictures of my own very corner at home in Singapore. Most of us live in a flat in Singapore, that is why a lot of people called Singapore ... a concrete jungle. I lived in 12th floor in particular so that makes us stay at the highest level of the building.
We have a wonderful view of the public park behind our house, I put my study room just next to the window facing the park it self. I usually tell others I live just next to central park ... :p. How I wish we could alter the window to make it full length window, but here in Singapore we are bound by so many rules, and one of them is not allowing us to alter any basic construction of the home we are living. So ... I have to make do with we what we have most of the time.
I do love my space, there are a lot of personal and memorable things around it. Just like this National Geographic Bag that I got from Madrid. I love this bag, it is very durable especially to carry books that i borrowed from the library. Books can be very heavy if you have to carry like 7 or 10 of them at one time. So this is really my library bag. My chair is from IKEA, I love IKEA, the same goes with the cushion.
I do't have any particular style or theme for my working space. I make do with what I have, I did not specifically designed this room to my need, a lot of them are mix and match .... I am just too busy to arrange it in such a way as well as we have a budget to run based on our priority in life. Home Decoration unfortunately is not one of the priority at this moment ... so, I just have to bear with what I have and make the best out of it.
Don't get me wrong! I love my space very much. This is a place I love the most at home beside my bedroom :p. I love working with my large computer screen when I am at home. I love to turn on my the internet radio while I work. I blog, I do a lot of photo editing and browsing the Internet from this table.
From 24 hours a day, on top of 8 hours sleeping, I spend about 3 to 4 hours outside home. It is usually because I have to send my daughter for her extra classes and wait for her. So I am very mobile. I love my Ipad and my Iphone, I do carry them around with me everytime. I do a lot of things with them .... So my days is always productive, I always have something to do with them.
Oh Well! It is cloudy and raining outside today ... so these pictures are not in the best lighting procedure! Again ... I make do with the FREE updating software in the internet. This time I am using Pixlr-o-matic. I used to use this apps a lot for my Iphone, now I am glad Google have it for Free on under Chrome Umbrella.
Enjoy the weekend everyone!
