Wanna give your apartment a makeover? The newly opened iDecorate store in Causeway Bay is full of unique, high quality art, linen and homeware, sourced from around the world
When we have finished getting our sweat on at the gym, enjoying happy hour after work and relaxing in a sensory deprivation pod, there’s nothing better than coming back to well decorated apartment. In Causeway Bay, iDecorate have recently opened a flagship store – to support the online shop – selling everything from art to homeware and linen and everything that a Hong Kong apartment needs.
iDecorate opens flagship store in Causeway Bay
Although Hong Kong apartments are generally small, it’s easy enough to make them feel like home, it just takes a little vision and the right products. Thankfully, iDecorate has landed to bridge the gap between high-end luxury homeware and high-street labels.
Specialising in sourcing affordable artisanal home goods from across the world, Shana Buchanan and Christie Simpson have been in the game long enough to know what works, and hand select creative pieces that can be mixed and matched for any interior style.
“We realised that the market in Hong Kong was crying out for creative brands that are not necessarily high-end, but that are high quality; brands that are created by artists, designers and small business owners,” explains Buchanan.
What do they sell?
When the pair is sourcing goods for the online shop and the new Causeway Bay flagship store, they try to find products that have a story behind them and evoke an emotion by the buyer, meaning the company has formed great friendships with the artists and designers that they collaborate with across the world.
iDecorate sell gorgeous bedding from brands such as Kip & Co and SackMe!, and they also have a range of artworks by Australian artist Danielle Cross that capture the essence of the city in a contemporary way. On top of that, the store stocks a selection of chairs, display units and other furniture that are all suitable for Hong Kong’s smaller apartment sizes.
How do I make my apartment pop?
So how do you make your apartment feel a little more homely in Hong Kong, especially when rented? Well, Simpson – who also works as a creative fashion and interior stylist – suggests that you start with soft furnishings. “I would say, start with something simple like our Kip & Co bedding that comes in some really beautiful colours. Then, when you find a particular colour that you like, you can add a piece of art to complement, and then kind of work from there.”
For those who love colour, design and things that are a little more unique, you will love the offerings at iDecorate in Causeway Bay.
