|Just right size for me.|
I am now getting fed up Renting (money down the drain) so the question is, do I buy the land in the location I want then build. or keep looking for that perfect home.
For me as a child growing up and watching Ernest Hemingway in his tropical home in Key West.( even though his home was 2 stories it gave me lots of ideas)
I used to love the way the curtains flowed in the breeze and how when bad weather came they closed the shutters, just little things I remember but Malaysia is perfect for me to recreate my own Paradise in the tropics.
Things I will need to dress the home will be
- Carved, caned and wicker furniture
- Wood flooring
- Tile flooring
- Area rugs
- Mosquito netting
- Folding screen
- Woven hat
- Ceiling fans
- Bistro set
Looks a lot but I can assure you this only touches the surface.
Tips from ehow.
Shop for furniture made by island craftsmen evoking pieces imported by the European settlers from their homelands. Look for pieces in hard woods, like ebony, teak and mahogany, that sport carvings of island motifs like palms and pineapples. Mix in white wicker pieces with deep cushions upholstered in bright turquoise and coral.
Some photos of what I am looking for. you will see my dream home does not have to be that big, its the planting design that will make the house feel tropical.
