My chi is now much higher. Or lower. Whichever one is better.

I didn’t think I’d be the sort but turns out, I love redecorating. Seeing how much time I spend at home, it’s nice to give the place a little makeover every now and then. Plus there’s that whole Barney Stinson philosophy of how New Is Always Better. With which I wholeheartedly concur.

Once in a while, I’ll make the husband move the furniture around just for kicks. He says the cabinet looks exactly the same 5 inches to the left but the man obviously knows nothing about fengshui. Which is admittedly more than I do, but I make up for it by throwing in random words like chi and earth energy.

And it irritates him the most when I make him shift everything back to its original spot because the new layout looks terrible.

Last week, I had a bit of fun redecorating the kids’ room with new wall decals. Alma from Pinnacle Wall Arts sent over a whole bunch of premium quality wall stickers called wallcandy arts. They were so pretty that baby girl was all “I like this one and this one and this one and this one…”

We had a hard time picking out the ones we wanted to put up but we finally settled on Forest Friends for Kirsten and Race Me for Tru. It took me almost a full hour to get the stickers just right but so worth it because the end result was gorgeous.

It’s like the forest animals are having a party around the row of pictures (which I’m supposed to replace with pictures of my kids – I’m still choosing which ones to put up). And the race cars were placed above Tru’s fire engine bed for thematic unity.

It’s a brilliant concept – high quality removable wall stickers that can be repositioned as many times as I wanted without losing its stickiness. I could create a new scene and story with the wall stickers and it was totally hassle free. Just peel and re-paste.

The husband is happy too because me moving stickers around whenever I get bitten by the redecorating bug means less furniture moving for him.

The stickers are also pretty hardy. The kids had a great time peeling them off, scrunching them into little balls and asking me to put them back again. Kirsten pasted an acorn on her nose and went around saying “see I’m a qui-wel, so pretty.” I think she meant squirrel but yes princess, SO PRETTY.

    Oh my, I really love what you’ve done to the kids’ bedroom. Those wall decals are very nice!
    My favourite part of our home has to be our bedroom, of course. Well, actually I still live with my parents while we wait for our flat to be ready so it’s not really our house. But I love our room; it’s our own private space. It was mine for all of twelve years until I got married and have a kid, so now the three of us share this little space. It is where I end the day with the two most special people in my life and begin the day in tangled sheets with those two. :)

    Playroom, where the kids can put up their drawing on any parts of the wall.

  • Reply Dawn July 27, 2011 at 12:04 am

    Living room. I can lie on the couch and enjoy the unblock view :)

  • Reply Blue Cotton Memory July 27, 2011 at 12:28 am

    Love them! Wish my boys were younger now – but I am going to be a grandma NEW YEARS EVE! Kind of wish my youngest was older but I guess they didn’t take that into consideration! LOL

    We just moved back “home” after being gone 2 years – My favorite room? Well, the dust has not settled – and no room is really complete – but for now I think it’s my office, which has shabby chic decor, a big window and quietness! It is a totally feminine room – where all the other rooms are designed to share with all the guy sensibilities (No Deer heads, though)! LOL.

    sorry … not voting but wondering where you got that picture frame. Am looking for something similar for ages.

    • Reply Daphne August 1, 2011 at 6:36 pm

      Hi Jeremy! I got it from Bangkok’s Chatuchak market almost 10 years ago. The shop is probably not there anymore but I’m sure they’ll have something similar there.

  • Reply Christine July 27, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    My favourite place in the house is the kids’ play room. Nothing beats bonding over some playtime after a long day at work.

  • Reply Sarah July 27, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    The toilet. I happily read newspaper in there. :D

  • Reply Hooi See July 27, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    I love the kid’s room where Linus and Amelia have their own little heaven to do whatever they want. Be it camping under the fluorescent stars on the ceiling or playing trains around the room, I know they are safe and have each other for company. I also love how they are now old enough to entertain themselves when they are awake in the morning.. giving my husband and I more rest time.. :)

    The balcony! It has been converted to my 13 month old’s play area… with toys and a play mat. Some stickers to decorate the place will really beautify the spot! :)

    Hi, I have been silently enjoying your blogposts for some time now, but thought I would comment and say congratulations on your win! Also, i think my favourite spot in my home would be the bathroom, because the kids love bathtime so much, I end up spending more time in there than i should.

  • Reply Jus July 28, 2011 at 12:51 am

    It’ll have to be the boy’s bedroom, which is the only room that seems to have some semblence of order. The rest of the house is just in chaos!

  • Reply beanbean July 28, 2011 at 1:15 am

    My favourite part of the house has got to be my bathroom, where I get some peace and quiet (if I’m lucky). I love decals, and these look great!

    This small corner in the living room where we have his books and toys. Though Nat seldom plays there, I like that it’s his corner. Or now, the kids’ corner, in the living room.

    You did up the decals very nicely!

    the corner where my daughter’s baby cot is ….its a tiny corner in the master bedroom but for now , its Charmaine’s little space…

    its doesnt look like a baby’s corner except for the cot mobile that hang over her blue cot which was a handme down from her bro…

    hope the decal makes its a nice girly corner for her
