Ever Thine Home

LB_FW1617_HOME_06_01_1200x800

A home by Melissa Sunjaya. Fun, vibrant, and just quirky enough to make you smile.

“These catastrophic eruptions prompting reformation to the Earth’s contours became the solo direction in sustaining this pulsar dance. This was the essential part of the relationship between Earth and humans.” –Excerpt from Surat No. 1, by Melissa Sunjaya

This perspective might be difficult to understand in a linear manner, because a one-way point of view hardly brought any results.” –Excerpt from Surat 1, by Melissa Sunjaya

Nesting Place

 

LB_FW1617_HOME_1625RS_07_1200x800Hi, I’m Fani.

LB_FW1617_HOME_1624YS_07_1200x800

Since I started working in Tulisan, I have spent numerous hours discussing projects in Melissa’s own house which also served as her art studio. She treats her Tulisan team in kinship. We would be having breakfast, lunch and coffees together like a family. Among this tight working team, we would share many touches of laughter while tackling deadlines.

LB_FW1617_HOME_05_02_1200x800

LB_FW1617_HOME_05_01_1200x800I rent a 4×5 square meter urban room in South Jakarta, not far from my office. It is a simple space with tiny ventilation panels giving it a descent natural light source. I often wonder how to redecorate this space without spending an excessive budget and a huge effort.LB_FW1617_HOME_1625RS_012_1200x800

LB_FW1617_HOME_1625RS_015_1200x800

One rainy afternoon as Melissa was working on her household responsibilities, I asked her for some tips on decorating rooms. So she took me to see her room. To my surprise, her bedroom was humble, yet warm and cozy. She loves spending time at home, and especially a lot of ‘me time’ in this room for reading, writing, and drinking tea.

LB_FW1617_HOME_1625RS_010_1200x800Her bare room was filled with only the basic sleeping necessities, such as a low mattress, a colonial arm chair, a reading lamp, candles, and a ladder as hangers. Her handwriting over the mattress gave the space a very poetic touch, like a lullaby before bedtime.

LB_FW1617_HOME_1625RS_02_1200x800

LB_FW1617_HOME_1624YS_018_800x1200

Melissa suggested me to redecorate my room with a limited colour palette of white and grey, making the creative process easier and giving a lasting satisfaction. The neutral tones made the room more spacious and friendly for the soul. Her bedroom was overall covered in neutral coloured linens, then vibrantly accented with Tulisan’s home collections.

LB_FW1617_HOME_1624YS_01_1200x800

LB_FW1617_HOME_1624YS_010_1200x800

I discovered a couple of unique ideas for my own space. As an example, the tea towel could be used as an interchangeable wall decoration and as a seat cover. The car organizer could also be hanged on the wall to organize tissue, books, and notes.

LB_FW1617_HOME_05_07_1200x800

I felt inspired that day because her decorating tips were easy to apply. A pleasant atmosphere doesn’t have to be expensive.

I hope you have a great day,
Zharfani Padmasedhana

Space In Your Home

LB_FW1617_HOME_04_07_1200x800

It happens to all of us: you walk into a Tulisan store, fall completely in love with some gorgeous of art and have to take it home, only to realise that it’s not the right fit. For one reason or another, Tulisan has some sizes for your wall, giclée in petite to master size.

LB_FW1617_HOME_04_01_1200x800

LB_FW1617_HOME_04_05_1200x800

Cushion Cover: Filogenesis & Tessitura

It’s important to remember that decorating is personal. At the end of the day, your opinion is what matters most. Simply adding art to an empty space, pick something that speaks to you. From there you can make sure that it chances. Chances are if you like it, it will.

LB_FW1617_HOME_1622BN_03_800x1200

Tea Towel: Tessitura – Blue Note

Empty wall deserves grand and glorious for wall decor. This way your room won’t get lost or look misplaced.

Tea Towel: Filogenesis – Nero Forest

You can also use moderately in the same theme or colour to create a stunning gallery wall.
