My wife just gave birth to our first born son few months ago. As days and months go by, we all of a sudden thought and felt that the house was not too safe for the growing baby anymore. So in order to cope up with the problem, we decided to conduct a home improvement, to be able to attend to our growing concern. So we went on to ask opinion from an interior designer on what we could do or change in the design of our house, for it to be hazard free for a growing baby. He told us to lessen sharp cornered furniture to prevent the baby from bumping its head once it started to crawl and walk already. He also advised us to remove all accessories and things that the baby could possibly pick up and swallow. We wanted our home to be more kid friendly for the sake of the safeness of our first born son. Having a kid friendly home is far more comfortable to live in with, because it has a lesser risk of injury for the baby and lesser prone to accidents as well. So in return we have a little fear than the usual because we are guaranteed that our son is safe while he is at home.
I am living with my niece; he is a fine arts student. Who happens to be good in painting and graffiti? One time we had this crazy idea of redesigning and repainting the wall of my house. So I asked him to sketch me a design that could possibly add flavor to my living room. I told him that I wanted the design to be influenced by Asian culture. So he drew me a dragon that is like coming out of the wall. I was so happy with the design that I right away asked him to start the graffiti on my wall. And to compliment the graffiti on the wall, we then went on to the mall to buy some accessories that could add more flavor and ambience to my living room. After doing the said experimental home improvement, we were so happy with the outcome that I decided to totally do a little retouch of almost every where inside the house, from the bedrooms to the kitchen as well as in the bathroom. After days of work doing all the remodeling of the house, we invited our friends to come over and take a look at it as well as criticize on the project we did. For us to have an opinion that would possibly much of a help on where we may over designed it or done wrong.
