Photoshoot @ Maison De Joie

It was photoshoot day @ Maison De Joie & the subject - our humble place :) Our designers wanted to add our home pictures to their portfolio & website. 
The photographer came early with several bags containing his equipments. 
 Testing the equipments to make sure it's working.
Equipments all ready, just waiting for Jessie & Merane to arrive to discuss on how & where they want to take the pics.

Living room first - our place wasn't big, so he had to squeeze in a lil corner to take a complete pic of the place.

 Deep in discussion ~ adjusting the angle just to capture a nice picture.
We hid in the study room & let the experts do their work. Taken with the front cam of my iphone. Grainy pic :( 
After several shots, they adjourned to the master bedroom to capture the last pic for the portfolio. 
Trying to capture a good view of the WIW. 
Proud home-owners :) The whole process took almost 3 hours just to complete 5 pics for the portfolio. 真是辛苦各位了!
A parting shot with our 2 lovely designers, Merane & Jessie. Thank you for accompanying us on our Reno journey! 

2 weeks later, Jessie sent over the pics for our viewing.
The view from front door, the 1st look at our theme.
Our living room ~ the cozy corner of our place :)
Kitchen area, with the small island separating the living room & kitchen. 
Lastly, our master bedroom, featuring the walk-in-wardrobe. Whenever I see the wardrobe, I'm always reminded of a quote from one of my fave show, Sex & the City - "I like my money right where I can see it ... hanging in my closet" ~ Carrie Bradshaw.

:: After thoughts ::
We have moved into our place for almost 1.5 yrs now. Till this day, it still feels surreal to be in the house, surrounded by the lil pieces of furnitures/decorations that we have picked & put together. My lil bro came over the other day and commented that our place is beginning to look like a home - I'm sure he meant that it's now filled with dust and whats-not. I'm extremely thankful to our designers, Jessie & Merane, for doing a good job with our place. Yes, we had our share of defects but it was rectified whenever we pointed it out. Edwin, our electrician is amazing with his work efficiency and attitude. Thank you, once again for helping us to create our dream home. With this entry, it's another chapter done for our Reno journey. For the friends & readers who are embarking on the path of building your love nest,  click on "Maison De Joie" page to read all about our Reno journey & hopefully, it will be of help to you. Have fun in creating your own dream home :)
