Tamsin also picked up vintage pieces from Hong Kong's General Store, generalstoreltd.com and Casa Capriz, casacapriz.com, as well as on travels to Scandinavia. "What I like about vintage is that it's not ubiquitous," she says. She also scoured the internet for pretty, painted bathroom tiles and design masterpieces that couldn't be found in Hong Kong. "Sites like Nest.co.uk and Design Within Reach, dwr.com, were a great starting point," she says, adding the caveat that "It's important to triple-check the details of your order before handing over your credit card, and to check your items are the right ones as soon as they arrive." In the end, though, the final result was worth the stress of incorrect orders, blown budgets and missed deadlines. "Whether we're relaxing on our own or entertaining friends, we love our home," says Tamsin. "It feels multi-faceted, unique and very 'us'."
