Mie Casa - Deko Bersama Jaime Ep. 2

Today is my second day painting my new home. Was a bit dizzy from burning the midnight oil reading my friends' (and foes) blogs updates. To fellow bloggers, do keep the creative juice flowing. Bloggin is not just about learning how to upload gambar into your personal cyber space yer...

View of the Sg. Besi Toll from the balcony at night. A place where money come flowing in.

I did quite a fair share of researching on the right colour, to the type of paint, the ambience I would like to create and customers' satisfaction on certain brand of paints over the Internet forums before embarking on this project. This project excites me too as my dad never allow other colours on our home walls other than white or shades of white. Initially I planned to put on wallpapers but its kinda pricey. Anyway, I might still carry on with the wallpaper plan for the master bedroom next year. Am still so in love with Goodrich Global wallpapers.

Amin is putting the undercoat to cover the original paint before painting the desired colour over it.

My developer friends, family members, buddies and painters advised me to use ICI Dulux Paints based on personal experience. I was a bit sceptical as I prefer Nippon Paint - they seem to have the colours that I wanted. But after watching Deko Bersama Eric and visit the website, I settled on ICI Dulux paint. Of course whatever paint u used, it must be painted by experience painters to get that desired effects. Furthermore, its worth it to invest in a quality and high performance paint no matter what the cost.

The living room after undercoating. Taken this morning. Came early as the next phase is time consuming...

I didn't really understand the difference between matte finish, soft sheen finish, or silky smooth finish. So yesterday, the unpainted walls became my canvas. I decided to try out the ICI new Paint - Light and Space which is claimed to be the revolutionary paint that makes a room reflect twice as much light compared to conventional emulsions and thus making your room feel more spacious. I tested it on the wall of my darkest room (with camera flash on) to see the effect as demonstrated here.

My adrenalin start pumping as the walls started to transform from a vision to a reality. The room colours a bit lari lah from the modern contemporary theme as it was based on feng shui orientation. Plus I wanted it to have its own character (sounds like Tara from WOW Factor plak).

By the way, the Light and Space paint really make my smallest and darkest room look spacious and glorious lah... Plus it is located at the Fame location of my home. Suppose to paint it red but too much fame also will make you go bonkers. I don't be mind to be glamour in moderation so I chosed the secondary colour from the wood element.... green after my dear Froggie.
