I first started this blog after a good friend suggested me to start documenting my home projects online. Still remembered the excitement when I wrote my first blog post: I dug up some pictures of my old bedroom, rushed to "reveal" the condo with a feature wall using "Vista" from Sarah's Designer Palette with Para Paint, and I didn't even know how to put up pictures on blogspot or upload videos to youtube!
The last 11 months have been an unbelievable experience for me. I've learned a lot about blogging, connected with many talented mentors, and inspired by smart design ideas from fellow bloggers. I am also very grateful that my place has been featured on Design*Sponge, declared the winner of Color Context 2010 (non-US region) at Apartment Therapy, and filmed by the incredibly talented camera crew (Denise and Ian) and design expert (Andrea Ford) for a segment for the Steven & Chris Show!
Thanks to my blog, I have:
(1) met Sarah and Tommy first time in person at IDS 2011 (I still remembered how nervous I was when I saw them)
(2) connected with other talented bloggers with big big hearts: I am so proud to be part of the meaningful charity project, Bloggers Give Back!
(3) attended the Canadian Design Bloggers Meetup, had a great chat with Tommy, and witnessed Jen's and Lindsay's dedication to update their fans on twitter (just look at them busy typing with their smart phones at the back).
(3) did an interview with my favorite local artist Ms. Heather Shaw from pi'lo and connected with the talented Mr. Scott Young from Scott Young Photography.
and best of all, I've also connected with lots of fantastic readers through my blog. A big shout out to "Trio", who had not only become my fabric buddy, she also coded a message on my blog to let me know Sarah's chairs were on sale at Hollace Cluny.
With the girl's bedroom and nursery transformation finally coming to an end, I am now ready to work on my next decorating project: a guest bedroom and a media room! Check out these mood boards:
Thanks everyone for a fun-filled journey for the past 11 months. I really appreciate all your kind and encouraging comments! Blogging has been a very rewarding experience for me and I wouldn't have been able to get to my first 100th post without each and every single one of you. Special shout out to Chris for all the love, patience and support (he's the technical guy behind the blog and the website) and I'm looking forward for many 100s blog posts to come!
