Karen’s Home in Tainan

Karen 07

I came across this apartment while browsing the portfolio of Hey!Cheese Photography.

This is Karen’s home in Tainan, Taiwan. It has that muji-ish, lived-in feel that is so relaxing, warm and homey.

Karen also runs a blog 許凱倫 の 台南窩居筆記 that she shares the story of her apartment and the awesome meals that she whipped up from this kitchen. Do check it out!

{ Ikea Collectibles } PS Cabinet

Price: $99 (SGD119)

Product Description:

  • Steel, pigmented epoxy/polyester powder coating
  • Comes with a cord outlet underneath

The Ikea PS Cabinet is frequently spotted in interior décor magazines. It is not difficult to see why. For $99 (SGD 119), this utilitarian, locker-like cabinet brings endless possibilities for your home.

Although it is an Ikea product, I really feel that it is a classic piece.

It works well as a landing piece in your hallway, sideboard in the dining room, furniture in kid’s room, the TV console in living room. Use it against wallpaper, or pop some art pieces on the cabinet – instant chic.

Utilitarian Chic HDB Flat in Singapore

This is a 5-room HDB flat in Singapore featured in May issue of Home & Décor.

I love how the space is not too “designed” or polished, there is no fancy feature wall or lots of built-in carpentry.

Yet, the fine taste of the home owners is seen in their choice of designer furniture classics, art and accessories.  The space has a utilitarian and artistic feel that will withstand the test of time.

Ultimately, good taste will never go out of trend.
