I put all my cameras, favorite books and vintage findings on my wooden bookcase. The old telephone is still working, though. :D
Tell us anything about you and your life style!
I bake cakes, travel, take pictures, write and dress up for a living... Pretty much doing what I love to do. In the meantime I play guitar and make dresses, my dad taught me how to play musical instrument and my mom taught me how to sew. I love collecting vintage items I found at the thrift store because it makes me feel like living in the few decades back. I found my inspiration through movies and music, and if I could pick the most favorite decade to live in, it will be the 60s. Good music and fashionable people everywhere. But I actually enjoy dressing up according to the 50s - 90s era depending to my mood. I can wear a pretty 50s vintage flare dress today and 80s leather jacket with ripped jeans the next day, it’s like I can do time-travel with my closet.
Audrey Hepburn artwork by Torobian and Enpens book clutch. David Bowie glasses. Bought the colorful plastic dinos at the toy store. There it is, from pre-historic to the 70s in one place.
Describe your room in a single phrase!
It’s a vintage, homey space with a jumble of my favorite things in it.
Where do you get the inspirations of your room from?
The old times. I basically just put everything I love in my room, anything that makes me feel happy when I look at them.
My current favorite 80s sequin sweater I found at Harajuku thrift store.
Mom's vintage tea cups.
I usually sort my clothes based on colors and how often I'm going to wear it.
Where did you usually get your room stuff?
I got the cameras, vintage telephone and vinyl player at one of Jakarta’s thrift store. A few were gifts from my friends and boyfriend, the weird stuff are mostly my D-I-Y. For the shabby chic inspired furniture, I got them separately when I found the ones that caught my eyes, and matched them later.
Which is the most favorite part in your room?
My closet because it’s the place where I get inspired, where I go the first thing in the morning before I start the day.
My sewing room where me and my mom sew.
