The Guest Room

A Hong Kong blog that does a lot more than blog

By JAR: Sunny at Heart

collage 11

Collage has merged with The Source and is now called By JAR!  Sunny at Heart is actually a name for yellow pulled from my Mythic Paint colour book. I’ll grab a new name each week. Mythic have some good ones.

Let’s talk colour this week and where you can buy some colourful stuff!

COLOUR! Every now and then I need some colour. I love the 3 paint colours in the buckets and look forward to using them somewhere….How about the legs of a wooden table, chair, or an entire table in a new colour like this red one on the right. Wouldn’t it be fun to have this great old tub cuddled up next to a warm fire! Looking to create a breakfast nook, this is a great spatial idea to use a bench along the wall with a small corner breakfast table. Frame it! I try to frame E’s art work and I love putting interesting frames on mirrors to add some character to a room…

Check out Collage 8 for some more colour inspiration! Enjoy.

The Source for COLOUR: Mirth. Mezzanine Floor, Yip Kan St, Wong Chuk Hang (see map below)

This is one of my favourite shops in Hong Kong. It is full of colour and lots of it in lots of different ways. From colourful children’s clothing and toys, to kitchen ware, women’s swim ware and clothing, hats, and so much more. It’s a store to explore filled with colour!

Check out my website to see my work in Hong Kong. A great example of colour by JAR Design is Mount Davis, Hong Kong
