Apologies for lack of posting. If truth be told (RIP Gavin & Stacey) I haven't been anywhere due to my attempted January detox of no shopping, eating or drinking. I can now only be found nibbling on a carrot in Life Cafe. This time of year is most definitely nesting time and I found some fantastic interiors blogs (see afternoon browse, scroll down on the right) and felt inspired to post on interior shops in Hong Kong. Most people overdose on dark wood in HK flats, there's nothing wrong with that but I love mixing it up. There is no reason why you can't mix light woods, flowery patterns, bold colours and vintage furniture and throw it all in together. You also don't need to buy big pieces to make a difference. Like clothing accessories, a lamp, mirror or rug can change the look and feel of an entire room. Here are some of my favourite interior hunting grounds:
Addiction - Loving the seven sins crockery and animal cushions - 15 Gough Street, Sheung Wan.
Artura Ficus - I am dying to buy the silver stools in the window - in the sale for HK$1,200 - yes please.
Aluminium - Dramatic lights, funky stools and storage - yes please.
Homeless - Our only true lifestyle store, love browsing here - yes please.
Melaine - Chinese furniture in bright pink? - yes please.
Shabby Home (pictured above) - Vintage lighting, rustic-chic-tastic furniture and mirrors - yes please.
Tree - A reason to venture to Ap Lei Chau, and drool - yes please.
Flea + Cents - Eccentric lamps and unique bits and bobs - yes please.
Blank - Customised art to brighten up boring magnolia walls - yes please.
