Living your life doing what you love is not something everyone can accomplish, but Bulan Lifestyle’s creator is setting out to do just that. Bulan means Moon in Malay and Indonesian, and the artist behind the brand draws inspiration from children’s books, nature, and vintage textiles. Bulan Lifestyle’s illustrations and designs embody innocence and incorporate bright, playful colors and wise words that are like a jolt of moonshine to awaken the senses.
The brand is making waves, with recommendations from Time Out Penang and Style Magazine Malaysia. Bulan images have made their way onto tote bags, shirts, mugs, pillows and more. You can help support the artistic vision of Bulan by shopping at the online store.
A “quirky, fun loving free spirit, vegetarian, wanderer, dreamer and boho!” is how she sums herself up. Bulan Lifestyle invites you on a journey to “set your spirit free” as she tackles a Sketch A Day Challenge. Here are some of her recent pieces to brighten up your day.
