Chez Daisybutter Wishlist: Hong Kong Division13.10.14
I have to say: when I was younger, I envisioned moving out into a beautiful 5 bedroom Georgian apartment with a huge garden, that chic minimal clutter aesthetic throughout the house with a washed antique colour palette. And little did I imagine that the first time I properly left home, it’d be approximately 11,000 miles across the world to an apartment that we bought when I was -30 years old.
So I’m moving to Hong Kong in approximately 4 weeks and I have a pretty 2 bedroom apartment to spruce up, including an open living/dining area. In true blogger style, here are some standard and some seriously indulgent apartment essentials packed into a wishlist:
Fujifilm Instant Photo Printer - £139.99
While I actually have an Instax Mini 8 camera (read my review here), it's a fairly costly way of having the wrong exposure or subject snapped onto instant film. I'm super tempted to pick up one of these after seeing it several blogs: you simply attach it to your phone and you can print photos from there! Hello Instagram filters galore...
Francfranc ALA Sofa - HK$6500
Michelle becomes a grown-up, part one.
I've been hunting down the perfect sofa for absolutely ages. While this one is probably not the one I'll be ordering, I adore the clean details and intricate finishes. I definitely want a grey sofa and ideally it'll seat 2 or 3 and be a sofa bed too. Let the hunt continue...
IKEA Checked Throw - HK$199.9
To go with my new sofa, I've fallen in love with this simple checked throw from good ol' IKEA. Draped on the back and ideal for cosy nights in on my own, I'm excited to pick up a couple of throws actually.
IKEA Stockholm Sideboard - HK$3590
When a sideboard is on your wishlist, it's probably time to go home. This one is perfectly sleek with plenty of space to pop a TV on, display coffee table books to the side and keep all of my clutter hidden away too.
Zara Home Tealight Holders - HK$199
Tealight holders aren't exactly essential but my bedroom here at home is a candle haven, so I figured if I mimic the look, I'll feel less homesick. I adore this little white wood and glass one from Zara home and will probably add other textured silver ones for a decorative feel. I'm also already earmarking some form of circle tray for a Pinterest-worthy coffee table!
