A new home in Tokyo

So here are a couple of pictures of our new home before we actually moved in. These pictures were taken while I visited it the very first time. I liked the volumes of the rooms, the laminated wooden floor, the green outdoor, the balconies, the quiet neighborhood and overall atmosphere. At this time, I am only wondering how warm we will feel in winter... it's been wonderful to live in a house with the children so far!

from top to bottom, left to right: front of the house, dining room, 
living room, outdoor, bedroom 4 {now an office room}, master bedroom, 
utility room {now my craft room}, view from the balcony

The house is much more spacious than our former apartment in Singapore. Which means some rooms such as living/ dining look a bit "empty". Some furniture shopping will be needed :-)
I also need to do something for the curtains, which look horrible... eeek!

You will have to be patient, as I will be away for quite sometime in the summer, there won't be any update on the decoration of the house before fall...

Until the next time :-)

PS: I have created this collage with Picmonkey, which I am not very familiar with yet. Are you using it?


  1. It looks nice Marie, very Japanese. I am sure you'll enjoy it!

  2. Lovely!!! I can't wait to see how you decorate the house!!! I have used Picmonkey. I didn't realize that they have already launched the collage part. I was waiting for it. Yay! Looking good!!

  3. Well done!
    So you can come to France, now! ;)

  4. Thank you for your comments sweet ladies... decoration will be a huge task in this place... I need to change the curtains, get a coffee table and a bench, painting or illustrations for the walls, standing lights etc etc... I have already spotted gorgeous shops on Meguro Dori, now to see if I will have a budget for it ;-)

  6. The place looks great. Lots of room for the kids to play in and for you to craft at.
