Honestly, the kids really didn’t get the best room on the floorplan package from our developer. The size of the room was very small and it had no window at all. It looked more like a warehouse, only even warehouse would be better. Imagine the kids being put in a box like a cricket used to be kept in matchbox. The room indeed looked more like a matchbox.

I really had to think hard to make it as humanly as possible so I asked the architect to design a window looking into the living room and I told my general contractor that no matter what the room has to have its own aircon (usually in other apartments in our complex, the aircon would be placed in living room and master bedroom. And 2 aircons is a max). I have my wishes came true with compromises of course.

Putting the window in the room was not a real problem, we just have to mind when we want to open it fully extended as it might bump into the door. The bigger problem was installing the aircon as it conflicted with water sprinkler (so we had to get the sprinkler slightly moved and extended and of course paid quite an amount to the building management), created a hole on the master/kids bedroom wall for the aircon pipe to get through from the kids room through the master bedroom and another hole on the wall to make it end up in the bathroom. The pipe route is almost as long as the silk road :) but I’m happy with the end-result and Raissa seems to enjoy her room so much too. Let’s hop into my jumping bean’s room…

Bedframe+bed included (Informa), flower lamp (IKEA), and mural by a talented cousin

Sssh.. supermodel is sleeping on Rue Raissa :D The sign board below it is reserved for her sibling.

A "revised" clothing cabinet. It's supposed to have white-with-lightblue-tint sandblast doors, but the contractor brought in a deep blue instead. It wasn't very bad actually, but since I was too upset, I asked him to cover it with a white sticker (which I can peel off if I want to reveal the blue paint later).

My idea with the windows is for Raissa to feel as if she has a neigbor across "the street" :D so I asked the mirror in the living room to be framed as if it's another set of windows.

What’s left to get for this room is a study desk, which will go behind the door under the book shelves. And, I have to start thinking on what/how to change the layout in a few years to accommodate 2 jumping beans. Hopefully by then, we will have a new home on land. Aaamiinnn..

    Bagus banget Lalaaaa….gue terperangah loh liatnya.
    Tapi itu kamar tanpa jendela…astagaaaa…gak manusiawi banget sih developernya. Tega banget deh.

    Trus…lampu bunga nya itu beli dimana La? Gue naksir, walopun kayanya terlalu girly buat Kai dan Sami sih.

    • Lala says:

      Kamu membuat hatiku kembang-kempis juga deh, Ka.

      Emang sadis bener itu developernya..tp namanya jg ini apt ala rusun ya kemanusiawian mungkin jadi prioritas kesekian. hihihi

      Lampu bunga itu beli di IKEA.. banyak bentuk2 lain selain bunga kok. Ada bentuk bugs dan bentuk bintang. Pas lg mikirin dekor kamar anak ini, gw masih aja berandai2, kalo seandainya anaknya cowo, kayanya muralnya bakalan gw bikin jadi gambar balon udara warna-warni dan gw tempel lampu IKEA nya yg bentuk bintang. hehehehe….

        aaaaaa…jadi pengen nyontek idenya buat kamar kai dan sami. Gak pake mural sih, secara rumah kontrakan, tp lampunya boleh lah

        • Lala says:

          Klo ga mau pake mural, mungkin bisa cari yg sticker dinding itu lho, Ka.. suka banyak kan yg lucu-lucu. Itu sticker nya ga ngerusak cat sama sekali kok. Udh pernah gw pakai juga buat ngehias lemari pakaian Raissa di rumah nyokap soalnya.

    Ah gue sukaa Rue Raissa :) Dan ada space kosong juga buat nama adeknya, so sweet :)

    Bagus lho, girly tanpa terlalu pinky dan tetep memaksimalkan space yang ada.

    • Lala says:

      Main-main doong kesini. Seperti usulan Meta, yuk potluck gathering.
      Pernah dijajal, 30 orang masuk ke sarang burung lhoo.. tp pada didempet2in dan menjajah sampai ke kamar-kamar dan dapur tentunya. hehehe
