FIND | Patterned Bowls

DSC_7270

Because I have a tiny apartment and an even tinier kitchen, I try to keep the colors of my dinnerware to a monochrome. I am also a huge Muji fan and I try to emulate their monochromatic kitchen and dinnerware design. I need to spice my life, and my kitchen, a little though as I find the monochrome┬ádepressing, especially during this rainy season when the skies are gloomy and our cave of a home is dark.

Stackable Mugs, Vintage-Inspired Kettle

DSC_6673Since I moved to a tiny apartment, I have started to be conscious as to the things I buy for myself and for the home as I do not have much space to store things and I don’t want to be bothered with too many things to arrange.

Thrift Store, The Angry Pig (but Happy)

I think the name of this store is “Conbef Trading” but I can’t help but refer it to the drawing on the “angry pig, but happy” at its entrance. This thrift store is packed to the brim, you can barely move between racks. And because of that, I don’t frequent this often, except when they are having a sale on their shoes. Their shoes are … Continue reading Thrift Store, The Angry Pig (but Happy)
