Ethereal Design of an Unworldly Kind

This is what happens when you cross an engineer and a self-taught Interior Designer who resides in the interior confines of the author's mind.

After badgering The Mr to take me to Ikea where i spent a good 4 hours (which is a minimum) and not-so-few dollars i have finally decorated my home. This is extremely special coz i assembled the coffee table, side table and all the lamps :) Hear! Hear!

Btw, that sofa is indeed a bewitched one. You can't sit on it without falling asleep within a few minutes of doing so. One of the better purchases of The Mr while The Missus was away (If you do read this honey, shlightly excuse the exaggeration. I need to spice my story :p)

Ever since i completed this pet project i have been mailing all n sundry the pictures. Then realised it is simpler to use my blog as an artistic platform to boost my image ;).So here i am. Right now all that is left to do is stitch some deep red curtains (Yes i plan to do that myself) instead of the white blinds to bring out the colours of the rug( which of course you can't see in the snap) and use my power tool and hang up a few family pictures.

Until we meet again in another episode of Ethereal Design of an Unworldly Kind, this is the Carpenter, signing off :D
Happy Holidays!

@All: Thanks a lot for all the appreciation. WIth this encouragement, hopefully i can redesign my bedroom n kitchen too :D

@kopos: Yesh coz this way, the 2 chairs you don't see in the photo but are placed Perpendicular to the sofa, will have an equal share of the coffee table :)
