Live, Love, Blog with: Mix and Chic!

I am so happy to have the wonderful Jessie of Mix and Chic here today - sharing five of  her favorites in design, style and life! Thanks Jessie! 


Hi Spicer + Bank readers, I am Jessie from Mix And Chic. I am thrilled to be a guest on Allison's lovely blog to share some of my favorite things.

{1} Your favorite thing about your hometown? 
I am originally from Malaysia. I was born and raised in a lovely little town named Ipoh. Ipoh is well known for its delicious food. People from many neighboring states often make a stop here for its inexpensive and tasty fare.

Ipoh's famous Flat Rice Noodles, Crunchy Bean Sprouts, and Dry Curry Mee

In additional to Ipoh's famous good food, what I love about Ipoh is the iconic and majestic architecture.

 Ipoh Railway Station and Kellie's Castle

{2} Your favorite product or design trend of the moment? 
I have many favorites but one of my most favorite is tufted headboard. A tufted bed always looks gorgeous, elegant and timeless, what's not to love?


{3} Your favorite design icon or style-maker (past or present)?
I have a long list of favorites but one of all time favorite designer is Phillipe Starck. I have long admired his work. Take these beautiful pieces for example.
Lou Lou Ghost

 Charles Ghost Stools

{4} Your favorite spot or item in your home? 
A beautiful cow hide rug I recently purchased at a discounted price at Ikea. It is very similar to the cow hide rug below.

Brindle Tiger Stripes Cowhide

{5} Your favorite indulgence or guilty pleasure?
Starbucks Mocha Frappucino blended beverage! I am sure it is calorie-loaded but it is something I indulge once in a while. I am sure it is also one of your favorites, yes?


Thank you for having me, Allison. This is quite fun to put together!
