HOME: Create a room at!

I know all of you love interior design as much as I do! Every time I have a chance, I always go first to Home Center or any home section inside chopping centers. Bed sheets, curtains and lamps are my firsts. Maybe it’s because I am a frustrated Interior Designer. Then I was recently introduced to that allows you to create room designs using real products. Yes Guys, real products. If you are addicted to Ikea (like me) you will “use” their products in you room, and afterwards, share them with your online community.

Neybers is similar to other virtual room creator sites. But of course it also has some unique features. The learning curve is fantastic and the flow of doing your job is so easy, you can just jumped right in and make you first room without watching the tutorial or instructions. A very user friendly application.

Below is the first room I designed on Neybers. Isn’t it lovely? I would love to sit down on that couch and read my favorite book. And do you see that console table on the left? I would love to have that, really.

So, why not try neybers and see for yourself? I’ll show you some screenshots how it works. But first, you need to register and create an account. You can sign in using your email or facebook account.
Next click design room / create room and choose your room template. The happy thing about this is that, you can change the flooring, wall, and ceiling even doors and windows. I feel in love with this feature <3. Just be aware that this application comes to us from Stockholm, Sweden by Amagumo Games so some terms are different. If you need rugs, search under “carpet category” while pillows are under “cushions” category.
Once you pleased with your design, hit the camera and crop the picture. You can then add a title to your design and publish it. Your design will be added to your news feed where others can like and comment on your design. When you publish your designs, more features will be added to you. You will also earn stars and coins that you can use if you want to purchase more features.

My second design is a walk-in closet. I like that union flag chair, it’s killing me!

I created fashion boutique forladies and gents, and you can easily spot the big difference, hahaha! Ladies section is full of everything. :D

My fourth design is an interrogation room, and I use the classic line in the Flor Contemplacion Film as the title of my room “I… did not kill anybody!” cool, eh!?

My fifth design actually earned a recommendation from staffs, yehey!! Clap clap clap!!! It is a “morning lanai” in a country, so there is a bike, a rocking chair a wooden finished porch, complete with some flowers right in front of the porch. I’m loving my own design now, I think I’m obsessed on it, lolz!

On my sixth design, I experimented to create a room that is not part of a home. It’s a music bar where you can chill, listen to a soothing music and enjoy a glass of wine.  I used an inverted table as the platform. You also need to be resourceful and try to use things in a different way. Finally, I used Madonna’s “Take a Vow” lyric as the title – “Lights are low, curtains down, there’s no one there…” (sing!)

For now, you can access or download an ipad application. So, don’t you want to try it and use your creativity as your guide? You can do it girl, unleash that creative juice and discover the unlimited imagination in you. Remember, human brain is a lot wider than the sky…
