Malang Studio Living

Having my own decorated space has always been sacred and essential to my serenity, with a job start date coming up and being in a completely new place alone for the second time in 3 months, preservation of any small part of my sanity hinged largely on having a place to call my own and fill with wonderful little things. A home is a treasured place to cultivate peace and strength necessary to open the door and face the rest of the world that may not be as kind. And for me especially; a place that doesn’t make me feel like I’m living in a foreign country by myself. Luckily I had souvenirs  a plenty to decorate my room and make it the splendidly hip little sanctuary that I need. I live in a half built completely new apartment building which boast to be the first apartment building in Malang.

May I present my studio in Malang:

Home is Whenever I’m Here


some Japanese 100 yen store battery lanterns for bedside lamps, and some handmade strings of paper cranes hung from the ceiling


some cheery headboard ladies to wake up to from Daiso Japanese 100 yen store

cardboard box covered with a batik tube making a perfect coffee table / foot rest


its amazing what free beach coral, an empty chocolate box, a $3.50 elephant and some pillow toppers from a hotel in Japan can do for a room.

the view inside: $5 peace posters from Vietnam and lucky origami flower balls, and the view from my window


the first thing I see every morning, and the last thing I see at night: paper cranes ceiling high 🙂
