DIY Easter Pastel Party

I have to admit I never been crazy about Easter (except for the fact that you get a couple of extra days off from work). Saying that, for this years Easter, I headed back home to Sweden  to spend some quality time with my family and decided to go Easter-Decoration-Nuts. My sister and I decided … 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

Sun, Waffles, Paint

I first thought about writing a DIY from my little painting session the other day but decided to skip it as I believe most of you know how to to use a brush and paint. Let’s just say it was not really anything groundbreaking; I just added a little bit of white and pale pink paint … Continue reading

On What I do – Day 6

Day 6, Monday: If you couldn’t answer with your job, how would you answer the question, ‘what do you do’? Networking is a pretty BIG deal here in Hong Kong. In fact there is basically an event everyday if you are keen. Despite being a social person, I always felt awkward at these events – it’s … Continue reading

DIY Striped Retro Bottles

Let me present Hong Kong’s own challenger to the Mason Jar – the Kowloon Dairy Milk Bottle! I have always liked this cute retro bottle + the chocolate milk is absolutely delicious ! Getting a good drink and a pretty bottle at the same time is pure double happiness and I love the fact that there … Continue reading

Timeless Blue China # Part 1

Every time I visit my parents, I fall in love with blue and white home interior all over again as the house is throughout decorated with beautiful blue Chinese porcelain, vases and lamps. After all, what colour combo is more classic than Blue and White? Coincidentally, I also feel head over heals with Valentino (again!) Fall’13 collection by Maria Grazia … Continue reading

DIY Fabric Bunting

With Spring arriving in Hong Kong, I had a BIG wardrobe clean out and invited my girlfriends for a Clothing Swop. It’s a fun and great way to get together, get rid of unwanted stuff and get a couple of new pieces without spending any money. Due to the small size of my apartment (25 square … Continue reading
