This month I’m … August 2021

FINALLY SEEING
Our tiny house in Germany!

The place was built last summer and we were meant to be there for it, but Japan had closed its borders for non-Japanese visa holders. I just cannot wait to walk through the door and start decorating! 

DECORATING
That tiny house

Internet connection permitting, I will post videos and pictures on my Instagram and Facebook stories as I go along. Did I mention I’m mega excited? 😅

WATCHING
“Physical” (Apple TV+)

I’m a couple of episodes in and love it!

“Sheila Rubin is a quietly tormented housewife in ’80s San Diego. Behind closed doors, she battles extreme personal demons and a vicious inner voice. But things change when she discovers aerobics, sparking a journey toward empowerment and success.”

READING
“What Could Be Saved” by Liese O’Halloran Schwarz

“An enthralling, redemptive novel set in Bangkok in 1972 and Washington, DC, in 2019 about an expatriate child who goes missing, whose family is contacted decades later by a man claiming to be the vanished boy.”

Video: Tiny Balcony Styling

Love love love our tiny balcony corner!

It gets sunlight first thing in the morning which is rather early right now. Japan doesn’t change clocks twice a year so sunrise is at around 4.30am right now ☀️
Sitting here at any time of the days feels like getting away from it all, but I do love the morning hours before the city stirs and wakes up.

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.
