LB_FW1617_HOME_1625RS_07_1200x800Hi, I’m Fani.

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_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

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.

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.

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.

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,

The Original Editions and Our Stories

WP_1204FB_02

The Original Editions and Our Stories Inspired by Indonesia’s famous folk story of Roro Mendut, a Javanese princess who fought to defend her rights, I am rewriting a new angle of this tale with my original illustrated edition “Love Letter of Roro Mendut”. It is an interpretation of every woman’s journey to find freedom and herself.

WP_1205YC_02 In parallel to this, Myra Bianda, our artist in residence who also takes the role as art director of our creative team, debuts her first illustrated Original Edition “Bawang Putih and the Night Sky”. As one of my devoted artist and designer, Myra has self-taught all artistic skills and has revealed to all of us her ultra-talented sides.

WP_1205PP_04 WP_1205PP_02 All pieces are hand made by artisans in small batches using internationally certified components. Each textile work is manually printed on non-bleached (chlorine-free) cotton canvas with eco-friendly water-based inks and protective PU coatings. I hope you will enjoy this limited run artist-illustrated edition.

Triple kisses, Melissa

Avocadoism

Posted on Green, Life | No Comments

WP_JOU_121211AVO_02

When talking about avocado, I yearn for more es campur (mixed ice) or jus alpukat (avocado juice) with chocolate milk. In Indonesia as is some part of South East Asia, avocados are taken as desert companions.

WP_JOU_121211AVO_01But then Dom, Melissa’s husband, taught us to sprinkle of olive oil, salt and/or sugar on top of our avocados. I thought it was very exquisite. Olive oil boost the fruit’s creamy texture and enhance its flavor. A refined taste that is indeed delizioso!
