a one stop source for renters and decor-obsessed folks!

Whether you’re renting, own a home or still live with your parents, you’ll find something to inspire your next or first decor project.

Created by Annabel Okeya, a budding Interior Decorator, My Base Space is where I share my decor inspiration and tips for renters and millennials like me.

I've always loved interior decor. So much so that I wanted to get some sort of certification for it. At the time, my mum was paying my tuition, so she had a say in the matter. Let's just say, she wasn't impressed with my choice of program. I decided to go for a 'more professional' course that would 'earn me money' and teach myself interior decor by any means possible.

I spend my free time perusing the web for the latest interior decor news and finds. I’m a creative professional by day and I run 'The Space' (aka this blog, MBS or My Base Space) in my free time. I have this – somewhat – unhealthy obsession with all things decor and you can follow my recent finds on Pinterest.

Graphic design and photography are the other two things I’m passionate about. I designed this blog from scratch and if you take some time to browse some pages, you’ll see some graphics that I designed as well. From gift guides to post graphics and more! Look out for my portfolio page shortly.

My Base Space is my brainchild and was born from a love for creating. My goal is for MBS to become one of the go-to sources of inspiration for young-ins around the world for all things renting and interiors, irrespective of style, budget or location.
