Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice that has made its way into Western interior design. When using Feng Shui, the goal is to design a home that aligns with who you are as a person. It is also a way to ensure a space allows your energy (or “chi”) to remain positive and constant. And who doesn’t want that? You don’t have to be a Feng Shui expert to apply some of its principles in the home. I’ve gathered five easy tips that even beginners can use!
- Get rid of the clutter
- Ensure quality lighting
- Keep electronics out of the bedroom
- Let nature in
- Choose colours carefully

Tell us. Who deserves a free Air-2-Chair?
We are looking for product testers.
Currently SofaSale is running a Facebook promotion and is recruiting cool product testers, so if you and your friend are keen to get a FREE Air-2-Chair, better let us know by Facebook. SofaSale will start selection a testing crew, so this new cool gadget can be fully tested over the festive season.
Share our Facebook post to your best friends, with who you would like to test our new Air-2-Chair.
Inflatable chairs are great for bringing to the outdoors, since they give you a functional outdoor furniture that can pack into a pouch on your backpack. Problem is, they also require pumps that take up room in your pack, leaving them just a little less capable in the portability department. The Air2Chair changes that.
Unlike other inflatable chairs, this one doesn’t require any kind of pump to inflate. Instead, it uses one of those modern inflatable setups that requires you to just move it through the air to sufficiently inflate. According to the outfit, all you need to do is hold the mouth wide open, take a couple of steps until it fully inflates and seal it (a process that should take no more than 10 seconds). From there, you can use it to sit back, relax, and give your legs a rest.
When fully inflated, the Air2Chair looks like a bean bag lounger – you know, the kind you probably had in your dorm back when you were going to school. Except, the darn thing is inflatable and designed for the outdoors, so you can sit on it whether you’re lounging in the backyard, partying at a festival, or soaking up the sun at the beach. With a deep and wide seat, along with an equally wide and tall back rest, the chair should support your whole body, with a feel that the outfit claims resembles “floating on a cloud.” Yeah, we’re not sure how you’re supposed to float on a cloud, either, but we’ll take it. Because of that wide profile, the chair supports a variety of lounging positions, so you can plop down in different ways without feeling awkward.
Construction is triple-coated nylon for the chair with double-stitched seams, so this should handle sand, grass, and paved grounds without any trouble, although they offer an optional protective mat that allows you to use it on rocks and similar terrain without taking damage. Since nylon probably won’t be comfortable as a seat, it comes with a suede cover that zips along the edges of the resting sections to serve as a seating surface. The suede, by the way, is water-repellent, so you can use it by the poolside, enjoy drinks while sitting on it, and even use it in the rain without leaving it soaking. It’s washable, too, so you can just throw it in with the laundry when it gets a little too dirty for comfort.
Do note, the Air2Chair isn’t designed to stay inflated for an entire day. Instead, it slowly loses air as time passes, likely requiring you to reopen the closure and refill it after four hours. Considering the whole process takes no more than 10 seconds, it doesn’t sound like all that much of a hassle.

A daybed frame is generally raised off the ground, providing plenty of room for storage underneath. This can consist of built-in drawers or open space to stash holiday decorations, as well as a spot for a trundle bed that pulls out to create an extra sleeping spot. If you’re looking for a daybed that can sleep two people, find one that has the trundle included so you don’t have to purchase one separately. For added comfort and a piece that feels more sofa-like, try an upholstered daybed. If you really want some extra room to spread out, look for a full-size daybed, as most come in twin sizes to fit smaller spaces.
What’s the difference between a daybed and a futon
Although they are both very similar in the purposes they serve, there are some major differences between the two that every buyer should know:
Futons: Think of futons as sofas that double as beds. Because their primary function is seating, they need to be a bit firmer to account for more frequent use by multiple people. A futon needs to fold up and down to switch functions, so often the overall sleeping area will be slightly larger than that of a daybed.
The above Gustav SofaBed is an example of stylish Sofa, which can be easily changed into a comfortable double bed, this is a Futon.
Daybeds: Think of daybeds as beds that double as sofas. Their primary function is for sleeping, so they will feature an actual twin-sized (or larger) mattress instead of cushions, and will typically be on the softer side. Daybeds do not fold up and down, so the seating depth will be greater than a futon, but can be easily adjusted by adding pillows as backrests.
The above is the Benchy Day Bed. Which can be used during the day to sit more people in your living-room or office.
What can we learn from the Ibiza lifestyle?
In Ibiza of course, the lifestyle is being outside most of the time, but in winter or evening it’s also nice to be able to enjoy it inside. It’s really nice to have an outdoor living room or a indoor garden, a green interior. The relation between in- and outside can be used freely! In a way similar to the Hong Kong climate..
An easy and effective way is to incorporate plants. They have a way of adding some dimensions into a room, bring colour and texture, but most important making any space feel lively and bright.
A large plant can sit in their pot, and be the statement piece whilst other plants can be hoisted up slightly on a small pedestal to add height to a room. They can also create contrast and are great when you have a white canvas, it adds a pop that draws the eye. It’s easy to create your own unique little greenhouse with mixing some of your favourite ones.

A Hong Kong bachelor pad gets a bold, bright and blue updateHigh-end hotels provide the inspiration for a Sheung Wan bolthole for a student studying overseas. BY OLIVER GILES Interior designers may dream of having a free rein on projects. But as Wesley Liu recently discovered when creating a bachelor pad in Sheung Wan, working without a brief can also be a burden. “There weren’t really any processes of approval,” says Liu, founder of PplusP Designers. “The client just passed the whole project on to me. I didn’t know what he’d think of it.” But the designer need not have worried. “When it was all done,” Liu remembers, laughing, “he came in and was like, ‘Wow!’ It was just like a TV show.” One of the first things Liu did was to knock down a wall between the living room and the kitchen, creating a sleek, open-plan space for entertaining. One request from the client, who likes to cook, was that he wanted to be able to serve his friends food and drink easily. “So an open-bar concept was best,” says Liu. Parties can also spill outdoors because the room opens to a balcony with sweeping city views of Poho (the area around Po Hing Fong) and Sai Ying Pun. Living room The sofa (HK$11,000) and single-leg coffee table (HK$1,200) came from SofaSale. The rug and the stool-like coffee table were gifts from designer Wesley Liu. The dining table (HK$9,000), dining chairs (HK$1,200 each) and bench (HK$5,800) The full story you find on the SCMP Post Magazine website
