Some of you may have already seen the news on Instragram, I have settled in a brand new studio a few days ago!
It was an opportunity to do some reorganising and finally making the decisions I had been putting off for a while. I’m sure you know the feeling …
So it was with great sadness that I closed a part of our e-shop, the wall sticker part.
It’s time to make room for new products and inspirations.
This was a product that led me to discover the murals universe that doesn’t fit me anymore, I’m aiming to work with more natural and sensory techniques, such as paper, paint or plaster.
I will still keep a small collection for sale here and the custom created stickers will always be available. The production and installation will be processed by a third party.
It is with so much joy that I’m sharing with you a little preview of the new studio, which is still based in Discovery Bay (HK) and that I share with the talented Eleanor Mc Coll!
You are obviously welcome to visit We hope to offer workshops for adults as well as children as soon as possible!

Michael and his children are sailors at heart! Weekends and school holidays are the opportunities to sail around the Hong Kong archipelago. The kids had gotten a virus when we talked about the theme of their room. But the theme was obvious.
Our idea for the room was one where fish would be flying and whales jumping out of the water.
The decor was mainly painted on, only the smaller elements were stickers. It was extremely fun for me to create this mural, and the kids’ enchanted and happy eyes immediately made me forget about the hard labor of the past two days that I had spent on the ladder ^^
I can’t finish this post without talking about my assistant Thomas, who tried to step into the fresh blue paint many times! What an adorable little creature! If only some of my family members weren’t allergic to cats…
A simple drawing can be the power force behind a whole marketing campaign. For the end of 2015 and Chinese New Year, I have suggested to Petit Bazaar to work with a beautiful leaf pattern. A simple branch can offer a multitude of variations.
- The Christmas catalog: There is a 2016 calendar on the back cover of the catalogs, which are free!
Go pick them up at the shop if it isn’t already done.
- The shop windows This pattern has helped animate the Christmas themed shop windows. We opted for white as it shows better contrast and maximum visibility.

- The lai sees: Chinese New Year was an opportunity to work with patterns with golden colours.
From time to time, it is necessary to complete as well as animate the graphic universe of a brand. It doesn’t necessarily have to be pushed by big financial efforts. A simple drawing and or design can bring a breath of fresh air for the new season.
We have just received these 2 new sticker color rolls,
You can now order any of our wall sticker design in light pink and grey.

Our little ones are heading back to school and it might just be the perfect time to redecorate their room. Some of you might have already done just that but for those that are still contemplating different options, here are three rooms I designed this summer to help trigger your inspiration.
The first one is my son’s Aydan’s. He is five years old. The background was made with paint and masking tape. It is geometrical and so quite easy to draw and replicate. The stickers are from our dinosaures collection available in our e-shop right here.
The two following rooms were designed based on existing models. It is an ideal option for those wishing to do something special, yet tailor-made for their space and budget! It usually takes us no more than 7 to 10 days to come up with a design plan, which can later be followed by the installation (but not necessarily). We start by discussing the spirit of the room before deciding on the color of the background and selecting the theme of the room. So don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule a house visit, designing kids’ rooms is one of my favorite parts of my job!
A background in light gray, pink and a touch of bronze for Alicia. A bold and original choice for this five years-old girl.
For her big brother Aaron, we went with a combination of grey, peacock blue and orange. We added a touch of fun and color to the gray wall using a 2.5 meters long sticker from the “Plain is boring” collection. Different lengths (up to 3 meters) are now available in our boutique to better fit your spaces and furniture.
You can find below the links to our products featured in these rooms:
Adele is a lucky little 5 years old girl who has received for her birthday a bedroom make-over!
I’m always happy to work on girls’ room and I think that if I had a daughter her room would probably look just like this one ^^.
Adele was quite specific about what she likes. First, she asked for a little boy and girl kissing… hmmm mommy was not very ok with that and so we only kept the romantic spirit from that idea. Then she said that she likes rabbits and the moon. I love so much working from kids’ ideas, it’s so refreshing and spontaneous.
Once the concept approved, we started working on the elevations of the room and the drawing details.
This was my last project of 2014, but definitely not the least. Before ringing in the New Year, I tackled a wall decoration assignment for a new veterinary specialty hospital in Wanchai. I got really excited by my first “medical” project!
Alane asked me to spice up the space a little bit by working on a mural concept for the major wall of the clinic. She wanted to create a warm, inviting and relaxing atmosphere. So we decided to work on a vegetal and organic pattern with colours that match the neutral colour range of the clinic. We introduced touches of mint-blue-grey to create that relaxing vibe and mineral look and mixed with it yellow-ocre-earth colours to warm up the space.
I had two main constraints for this project: working on white laminated panels and using only washable and easy maintenance material. It became quickly obvious that wall stickers were our only option.
We wanted to develop some sort of tribal pattern. We found that traditional Japanese patterns were perfect for this project. We used them on a smaller scale to fill up our big shapes and bring texture to the murals.
