The Sayonara Season is upon us

The dreaded Sayonara Season is upon us and lovely friends pack up their lives in Japan to move elsewhere / back to their home countries. I’ve called a number of countries my (temporary) home for more than 20 years, but I’m still not used to the frequent good-byes…

Are you saying sayonara to some of your friends and would like to get them something to remind them of your time together?

Here are my suggestions:

Textured Turquoise

Discovering and meeting creative artists and artisans is one of the tasks I enjoy most.

I came across Khun Alex’ textured turquoise creations when I lived in Bangkok, but I hadn’t met the creator during my time there. It took me quite while and a number of friends on Thai soil to find him and I finally met Khun Alex on my very first sourcing trip to Thailand (see picture above).

His beautiful decorative items have been adorning the Showroom for a while and they are now finally available in my online store.

Monochrome living

Monochromatic decorating is nothing new, it has been around for ages. So if you are after a decorating style that doesn’t go out of fashion quickly, you may want to consider giving your home a monochrome makeover. 

A monochrome colour palette also lends itself as a great base to add flashes of colour or to display some more colourful (travel) finds and treasures without adding visual clutter to your space.

This time of the year is all about getting cozy

In an earlier post I talked about my first winter in Japan and how cold I was.

Whilst I loved being in Tokyo, it felt like I had never been that cold in all my life. Bit of an overstatement given I grew up in the eastern part of Germany. Winters used to be pretty cold and snowy back in the day…

Anyway – fast forward to our 4th winter in Japan and it seems like I’ve finally acclimatised 😅

Take a look at the online store to cozy up your home with winter in full swing out there:
