You don’t need us to tell you that residing in Hong Kong means compromising on living space. However, we’re here to assure you that renting a shoebox doesn’t mean being unable to decorate it. We’ve curated six ingenious home decorations that will help you make the most of every square inch in a small space.

Beautiful Boxes

Stop right here and start throwing out all of these unsightly plastic and cardboard storage boxes at home (we’re not judging, we’ve been there too). If you have to keep your things boxed up, be kind to your eyes and store all that stuff somewhere pretty. Reflection Carnarvon by BONNSU is a stackable container inspired by medieval castle towers. They can be arranged in many ways for elegant and playful organisation of personal items, transforming messy spaces into modern displays.
