Zara Home Opens in Guangzhou

Zara Home Opens in Guangzhou

Yesterday while completely getting lost in our hunt for DVDs along Tianhe Lu, Herr Hubby and I stumbled across the swanky new One Link shopping mall (right across the equally swanky Taikoo Hui mall).

I was extra-ecstatic when I discovered that this new mall had a Zara Home shop. Absolute home decor heaven! I couldn’t stay long and browse to my heart’s content as we were on our way somewhere, but made a mental note to myself to come back when I have more time.

From what I quickly surmised yesterday, even though it’s not a very large shop, they had everything from bed linens to bath accessories, kitchen knick knacks and lots of lovely little decorative objects for every room in your house. All in lovely hues of white, grey, beige, gold, silver and a soothing pale sea blue…ideal colours for a tropical home or a beach house! Oh – and for the cocooning fashionista, they also had delicious lounge wear and sweet cotton nightgowns, all in dreamy white.

Drooled over the scented candles and sets of bed linens (don’t you just love sliding into bed, with new freshly washed sheets?)…but made a more affordable purchase of a set of slate grey placemats and one sweet white cotton nightgown. Whenever we’re in the tropics, I love sleeping in white cotton nightgowns and I’m so lucky that Herr Hubby is only too happy to indulge me.

I still haven’t figured out how to really dress up one corner of the living room in our new home here in Guangzhou so I can’t wait to go back to Zara Home and pick up some ideas!

How to get there: Zara Home is on the ground floor of One Link Walk shopping mall on Tianhe Lu, right across the Swire-owned Taikoo Hui, so it is easy to take a cab or bus. When taking the metro, get off at Shipaiqiao station.

Just found out that Zara Home has landed in other cities in China, e.g. Beijing, Tianjin & Yichang…but, errr, not Shanghai. (Wonder why they skipped China’s most style-conscious city?)

Are you one of the lucky ducks with a Zara Home in your city?
