Haji Lane in Singapore


Hello, sorry I wasn't able to post yesterday… it was my son's Birthday and we were/are celebrating it in our 'continuously better looking' apartment… see images below…  After a long day of strolling around Universal Studios I was in desperate need of some real inspiration (yes it was fun, but not my cup of tea) … so my husband and I left the boys with the babysitter and went to Haji Lane, a little street in the Arab corner of Singapore which I had heard many good things of …. great fashion from indie designers, cute little things handmade… but nobody told me about this place: A Thousand Tales … beautiful Scandinavian inspired furniture, newly made from mostly teak, showcased in a funky and cool shop + a small cafe! {image above via coolhunting}


Another shop at Haji Lane I really liked was Green Poppies, especially for their super cute stationery like these 'Keep It In A Notebook' and a little pouch that I forgot to buy… good reason to go back…

Like I said we are making progress on our new apartment, luckily with some help from baby Kiet …. 


… the vintage Harvey Guzzini lamp was a little treasure I found in the Netherlands last year together with a set of two loungers, the Bovenkamp Sofa Models 58, not knowing at that time they were vinatge designer pieces… just liked them for their scandinavian look and teak wood… not even knowing they were by a Dutch manufacturer… Bovenkamp. All together they didn't cost me more than 75 euro's! I love giving them a new life here in Singapore.


And two more details of our apartment that I dare to share with you… when it's all finished I will give you a tour… I promise!
