Sfgirlbybay Taiwan Style.


I am so excited to have been published in this Taiwanese magazine. I have no idea what it says, but they did an awfully fun job of laying it all out. The magazine is called Do It Yourself, and I am trying to find out more about where it can be found in bookshops and online. DIY is published every two months in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China about hand made accessories and home decoration. The theme of the July DIY issue in which my apartment will appear is : My sweet home, my happy life style. I'm so happy to be a part of it! Here's a sneak peek...

thanks guys! it's fun, huh? the writer actually just pulled photos from my flickr sets, so it's a bit of a composite of my apartment in many different stages.

Congrats! The layout is good, it does your clean lines some justice... and I love that Coops made it in the pics. Quick question: where are your low-lying bookshelf thingies in the dining area from? You know, the ones under the chalkboard? Thanks!

Both the layout and home look beautiful - congratulations!

Alisa said...

How cool is that? Congrats!

Jean&Dylan said...

That's so neat! It says a lot of good stuff about how lovely your place is.But the title is "Transformation of an old house" With the subtitle saying "A living nest for a modern artistic lady" It's written in Traditional Chinese text. Overall it talks about how you salvage and embraces vintage things to create a modern chic interiors. I can translate the whole thing, but will be long...:P
But it talks about the history of the building, what you do, and everything great about your place! so don't worry, they didn't say anything bad. I checked :D

if you really want me to translate the whole thing, let me know.

Hi, I read your blog and saw the photos, they were great!! It has inspired me a lot for the renovation of my 16 years old apartment that I just bought.
I will buy one copy for myself, if you need, I can buy one for you and send to you. Actually, I think you should ask the the publiser to send you a copy!! It is what they normally!!
