Space Space Space........Need More

Here 's a few tips.

Try to place mirror in certain parts in your room. Use wide mirror. This will create impression of extra spaces. By tricking our eyes, mirror will create large space and double room.

Choose furniture carefully, use pale and light color of furniture, it will open up your room. Use dark for accent, your room will not look so hectic. Multi purpose furniture will do best to keep your things. Coffee table with drawer, Side Table with cabinet enclosed, sofa with storage underneath and sliding door for cabinet or credenza will save your space.

Try use furniture with legs, they will make impression of lightweight and increase the sense of space. Hanging furniture for your dressing or console, nice accent and create feeling of extra space.
Use bunk bed for children’s room. Sofa-bed will free up your space and also useful if you have guests.

Lights your room with separate light sources. This will enlarge corners of your room and enhance its ambience. Also you can cover your cluttered area spot and highlight your best corner. Consider using movable floor lamps, table lamps around your room.

Wall Painting Technique

There are few ways to create beautiful wall paint in your house. Better yet, combine them! In no time you will have made a creative, low cost improvement to your home.


Sponging is perhaps the easiest faux technique to master. It takes very little paint, just a touch of practice, and looks great in nearly any style home! I prefer to sponge one color over another for a more subtle look, but you can sponge over white if you prefer. You don't have to use those expensive sea sponges, either. Just rip and tear an ordinary kitchen sponge to create an irregular surface. Dip into paint, dab off so that it is almost dry, and pat onto the wall. Vary the direction of the sponge as you go to create a more natural look. You may wish to practice a little on cardboard first to test your technique.

This is a classic favorite. A quick way to add interest to a room without worrying about it competing with pattern or being too busy. Use painter's masking tape to tape off the stripes on the wall. Match the width of the stripe to the size of the room a larger room should have wider stripes. You can even alternate wide and narrow stripes if you prefer. You can measure this out or do it by eye. Now paint inside the tape. For a casually chic room, don't use masking tape and just roll the stripes right onto the wall!

Stamps or stencils can be used to accent, border, or provide an overall design similar to wallpaper. They are very inexpensive, or simple ones can be made at home with lightweight cardboard (cereal boxes work great) and a craft knife. Stamps can be made the old fashioned way, with a potato! To stencil, simply tape the stencil in place, then pounce the paint over the stencil with a nearly dry brush, rag, or sponge. To stamp, brush a small amount of paint onto the stamp, dab off , then stamp onto the wall.

Many of us don't want to paint our entire rooms, but want to add some color and flair. Try painting a "frame" behind a group of photos. It can be a block of paint to hang the photos on, or just a border to enclose the group of wall hangings. This also saves on paint, but adds a lot of interest and brings a room together.

Colorwashing is a lot of fun. It is a wonderful finish that creates a lot of depth and texture, and is a quite popular paint finish in luxury homes. It is simply a method where you add water to a paint or paint base, then rub over the walls with a rag. That simple! I have mixed my own paints for this, but it can be difficult to get the colors and ratios right. If you want to try a product made specifically for colorwashing, give a try. I've used their products, and they go a long way with beautiful colors. A bonus with colorwashing? You can use this technique for all of the ideas above!

Country House

The architecture concept of this house is tropical country house design, using mostly exposed and unfinished materials such bricks, natural stones and wood planks and use natural colors too. But for wood planks they can be replaced using resin planks with wooden look and texture. All walls are made of bricks, the wood planks or resin planks are used for finishing materials. This tropical country house design comes in minimalist and simple design because it is designed to be built in tropical region, so it must suit the environment as well, this tropical country home design has many large windows and air holes which can make the air circulate effectively and reduce the tropical temperature inside the house.

Basic Tools

I would like to dedicate this page for special tools that contribute to our design. I use common software to create the designs. Actually, it is fundamental software in architecture-interior world.

I have been using this software from R 12 to AutoCAD 2007. With adding new features and menus, this tool becomes more user friendly.

3D Max.
This is the best tool for creating 3D view. I have tried a few of 3D software, but still I find Max is the best.

I will write another review about architecture-interior related software. I need time to finish my trial and find out the advantages of them.

Renovated House

This renovated house design was a development of an old existing house. The few changes we made were add new Floor, change the entrance and design new façade. New floor was added to this renovated house design to accomodate all family member's needs. New facade came out in simple architecture looks, it only had curvy lines on windows design in order to create a feminine look and to soften the straight and rigid forms of this renovated house design. The result was not really bad though :) the most important was the owner got the renovation in low budget. We developed this renovated house design 4 years ago.
