House tour: A chic designer’s home flaunting a minimal and earthy flair.

While Man Chien certainly has her own unique artistic approach in designing for her own label, ManChien, her home is also decorated with paintings from the pair’s closest friends. “Mine is hung in the home studio,” Man Chien shares. Additionally, the living room spots a ketchup painting by a four-year-old, placed just above an old fireplace which is currently blocked by a sofa.

According to the designer, decorating isn’t a problem, but the challenge lay in maintaining tidiness and restoring them into order. “I’m meticulous over storage (and) organisation,” admits Man Chien; she works and paints from her home studio, which means an organised space is that much more important.
