A Hong Kong blog that does a lot more than blog
Escape the Everyday is one of my favourite Mythic paint colours. Let’s talk blue. Patterns of blue, textures…. Instead of painting a wall blue, I love this tiny dot print wallpaper behind this blue jean bed. Layers of colour with different hues and textures can make a single colour like blue come to life. I’ve been wanting to make my own candlestick holder. How about this indigo blue pipe line candlestick holder! When it comes to art, imagine hanging something with depth like this winding stair in your living room. Where would your thoughts take you each time your eyes dove into this image? I want one! It’s not also easy to add a wall texture as display. I commend these two examples on the right. I have no idea how many plates that is…. but it’s a beautiful eclectic mix of something so utilitarian as art. I’m a big fan of framing my daughters artwork. I’d love to take 49 of her drawings and paintings and create this white frame wall! Love it! I’m thinking a lot about interesting innovative lighting these days. I love the elegance and simplicity of the white light set on the left. Everyone is doing cable lighting these days… how about a new take, like this bulb wrapped in it’s cable….. Last but not least, I threw in a splash of red! I love the simplicity of this red room with a single photograph and red rug.
The Source this week comes from Flea + Cents. Another one of my favourite stores. If you’re looking for cool interesting lights, not your everyday chairs, knick knacks, mobiles and even cool travel bags check out Flea + Cents in Wan Chai. It’s a hidden gem.
Flea + Cents: 36 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai. (You will need to walk up the stairs. It’s on the first floor)
