Oh so pretty by Hoo

Hoo is a Hong Kong based interior design & home styling firm. Their style is simply impeccable and I love every project of theirs. You really have to check out their portfolio.

This apartment is located at Mid-levels Hong Kong – a bright airy Scandinavian theme; accented with marbles, pastel color, Wishbone chairs, and even a Safretti fireplace!

The duck-egg blue entrance sets the tone before you enter the apartment. Oh so pretty ~
