The Guest Room

A Hong Kong blog that does a lot more than blog

The Source: YELLOW3


As a designer I spend a lot of time sourcing things for clients. I prefer, when given the opportunity, to design objects and have them custom made.  Last April when we moved into our new apartment in Hong Kong I decided to take that opportunity and paint each room, hang all of our art around the house, hang hooks and change all the lighting. I wanted to do a full makeover without spending big money.  Previously, I have designed and made rugs and mobiles for my clients, but this was my chance to add lighting to that list. In our living room, I wanted something raw and rustic over the dining room table. I designed and created the first JAR light called YELLOW3.  The light uses 3 different bulb sizes, each with different shapes to play with the form. The yellow cable also plays nicely with the ‘Escape the Everyday’ non-toxic VOC free Mythic paint I used. To enquire about your own custom JAR light, which come is several different colors, lengths and bulb shapes contact Or check our my website at

    Very cool, thanks for sharing. As someone who really appreciates the importance of well-designed lighting, I’m thrilled that we can still use many of our favorite lamps here (we just moved to HK in the summer from the US). But we’re having a bear of a time finding a place that sells really good bulbs with soft, warm light. Any ideas or recommendations about sourcing for non-designers?

      Hi. Thanks for your interest in The Guest Room. I’ve found some good bulb options in Sheung Wan along Po Hing Fong. There are a couple shops along that street you can check out. I hope that helps. Mrs. J
