12 ESSENTIAL TIPS TO SHOEBOX-LIVING

This is probably one of the first blog post I should have written here on Shoebox-Living. After all, it was the inspiration for this blog as well as how I lived life in Hong Kong over the last seven years. A topic long over due, I got together with the Hong Kong’s newest creative web-community StylebyAsia to dissect … Continue reading

Halloween Pumpkin Inspiration

Happy Halloween! For me, the best part about Halloween is to make cute pumpkin decoration and carvings. Halloween wasn’t really celebrated when I grew up in Sweden, so I always had a non-traditional sense for the holiday. I always loved pumpkins though; the shape, the taste and the color! Everything-all-at-once! However, over the years I’ve … Continue reading

Bed Canopy Inspiration

Phew. After one more week of apartment hunting, I’ve still not found that flat. You are probably asking yourself what can be so hard? Well, there are a lot of obvious things to consider like size, budget and location. Then, there are the less obvious considerations like having a green view; perhaps a little balcony … Continue reading

Pink Wallpaper

I’m moving house (FINALLY) in beginning of October and have found myself day-dreaming about whimsical ideas how to sneak a little bit of pink into the apartment (without  notifying my-not-so-big-pink-fan-boyfriend). My mind is going in full-romantic-mood; I’m thinking a pink floral asia inspired wall in the bedroom, white lightweight blowy curtains (perhaps even a bed canopy?) and … Continue reading

My Swedish Summer House – The heart of the house

Second part of my mini-interior series “My Swedish Summer House” takes us the main floor where the heart of the house is; the living room goes in white and navy with the most comfy sofas (impossible to stay awake in); the dining room is furnished with an old Gustavian dining group that was given to … Continue reading

My Swedish Summer House – The Kids’ Attic

It’s ironic that I have not yet written a post about “My Shoebox apartment” in Hong Kong. After all, my tiny flat was what inspired me for the name of the blog. Once back in +852, it’s the first thing scheduled to be published. In the meantime; after hijacking my parents place here in Sweden … Continue reading

Pastel Interior Inspiration

My second post here at Shoebox-Living was about all the lovely pastel houses around Hong Kong. Last weekend – while visiting my sister in London – I stumbled onto a street with gorgeous-pastel-painted-houses. Unfortunately, my camera ran out of battery so could not document all the sweet shades and detailing, but luckily found a close … Continue reading

On my mind: Neon home-interior

It’s official: the neon trend appear to be here to stay. Several seasons ago I recall hearing from someone in the industry that neon was a fad soon be gone. It could not have been more wrong; the neon palette with hot pink, flourocent yellow and orange at heart has migrated from garments to accessories, … Continue reading

Pink Stairs

Time to obsesses a little bit more about pink and how-to-incporporate this whimsical colour into our homes. For you that are-not-so-very-much Pink fans; Sorry in advance – I’m afraid this will be a running theme here on Shoebox-Living! Right now, I’m willing to pack by bags and move back to Sweden in order to get … Continue reading
