More than just a backyard...

During December last year, my hubby and I decided to renovate our backyard in order to create a small room.

My backyard before renovation...

The bamboo trees had grown out of shape. We chopped off a big portion of it before the renovation started.

Added wooden strip on the transparent roof to block sunlight. Also, we opted for glass door instead of a brick wall to retain the outdoor feel.

The frameless glass door that brings the outdoor in.


The water feature and Buddha statue were already there for a few years.

The leaves grow fast and nowadays my maid trims the plant frequently.

Ceramic holders from Ikea. I finally have a mini art studio!

Drop leaf tables from Ikea.

2 more tables on the other wall. It's a space saving idea!





Translucent roller blind with anti-UV coating



The wooden hippo I bought from an African market in Paris many years ago.





2 tinted glass doors that separate the dining room from the new room.

Added 3 new spot light


Everyone is enjoying this new space at home!

Thanks, Eunice. I love interior design and sure would love to share with you :-)

Hi Sunny-Cookie, thanks for your compliment. It is truly a fun project. I remember coming across your blog entry about you and your hubby decorated one wall with a few photo frames, I'm sure it is very fun too!

Hi Yuin Ting, Wow! Very artistic and classy. Love your choice of colours.
Looks more like 5 star hotel now too.
You and hubby sure got good taste in decor, and love the bamboo plants.
Nice! Very nice, outstanding!

Hi Uncle Lee, thanks for your compliment! I like to decorate my house and I love to play with colours. Guess you also notice I love red... actually my dining room is RED and I'm sure it will increase the appetite, ha ha!
