The weather drops so low in LA today. And this is just reminding us that winter is still here. Well, you might already take away all of your holiday decor that made your home cozy and warm. There is one magical item that you really should still keep it around. Yes, rug, please. As matter of the fact, you should keep several of rugs in your home–runner for your kitchen and hallway, a large area statement area rug for your living room, a faux fur rug for your relaxing corner and rug-on-rug-on-rug style to bring in pattern, color and some casual bohemian vibes. In the following, we will talk about how different style of rugs can transform and elevate your home in a second.
A touch of coziness.
For this newly designed project we just did recently, we throw a cream faux fur rug under a clean-lined modernized classical gilded chair to make the corner of this all-white room warm, cozy, inviting and romantic.
For the study room project we did several years ago, we also had this faux fur rug by the window seat to create that a cozy and relaxing zone in the study.
2. A wow factor statement.
For this entry we did several years ago in Walnut, we used an emerald green silky rug with geometric lines to eco the circle design at the edge of the entry table.
This is the entry for one of our holiday show-houses a couple of year ago. We love this large floral pattern rug at the entry to wow the guest.
3. To keep cohesive through rooms and holistic decor.
We did this modern house project last year. We actually keep the client’s Moroccan style rug and start to curate the whole house decor based on the color palette on the rug.
4. Add a touch of whimsical and interest by stacking different rugs together casually.
For this new project we just did, we actually stack two rugs together to have that extra coziness.
We are really obsessed with layering different rugs together to create visual interest.
5. Transform your home with Scandinavia chic and cleaness.

We all want the freshest, newest and coolest look for our home in the new year, don’t we? If refreshing your home in high style is one of your goals in 2020, please read on this blog since we are going to share some industry insights in the following 5 ways to help you reach your goal in 2020 by showcasing our newly designed dining room project.
First and foremost, always keep true to your own style and choose things that you love and are attracted to. You may notice that there are a strong wave going on years for mid-century style furnishings and you can find mid-century furniture and decor in any big box retailers now . If mid-century is your style, that is all good. But just bear in mind that not all of mid-century furniture is created equal. If you are a classical lover, I have a good news for you that classic design with new twists is coming back big. Millenniums are now looking for one of kinds of vintage pieces, antique and art to curate their own personal style. They definitely don’t want their home just look like their neighbors.
Furniture and part of decor items in this Dining Room will be available on our online store soon.
2. Stay muted natural color palette with pops of color in a subtle and cohesive way is a great approach to create a timeless interior.
3. Layering the room with different elements, patterns and textiles and etc… is another way to create timeless look since layering always bring in interests, depth, dimensions and personalities to the space.
4. Have something sparkling to create a high-design and high-polished style for the room that is important to you and your family.
5. Yes, fresh flowers please. They help add pops of color and make any room alive in a second. We usually prefer to loose style flower arrangements since they often invoke a relaxing vibe.
Wether it is formal, or very casual, a dining room in all kinds of styles–modern contemporary, coastal, bohemian, mid-century modern, Scandinavia often makes a home homy since this is the place where families get together and chill at the end of the day. My design philosophies are: it needs to be beautiful so it can please eye and it also needs to be comfortable so we can totally relax here.

We love to stroll around LA’s Art District over the weekends. We love to see the young energies and emerging trends here. So often, we are just amazed and entertained by one OF kinds of graffiti on the street. I may not a big fan of graffiti. But I love those in Art District thanks to the beautiful color palette they use and meanings behind each of these street art.
And for today’s trip, we visited several art galleries. They were all very cool and interesting. We specially love the art show ofEttore Sottsass. Ettore Sottsass was an Italian architect and designer during the 20th century. His body of work included furniture, jewellery, glass, lighting, home objects and office machine design, as well as many buildings and interiors. Sottsass made his name as a designer who, through color form and styling, managed to bring office equipment into the realm of popular culture. Today’s show was about his signature cabinets, shelving, ceramic, glassworks.

We would think that decorating 20,000 square-foot estate should be a daunting work. LA-based decorator Lonni Paul recently just transformed such a big job for real estate developer Ted Foxman’s 20,000 square-foot Bel Air family home in a seemly-effortless way.
We mean, the house is big, just imagine it–overlooking the expansive Pacific Ocean, eight bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms, the property is filled with just about every amenity one could desire in a forever home. The first question popping on our mind is how she started her decorating job with such a colossal home. Paul is such a genius designer and is no stranger to design projects of this magnitude, as a number of her former clients have resided in areas like Saudi Arabia, where properties are typically on the larger scale. And it also comes down what the clients are really looking for -“We wanted a light, airy, positive energy to be everywhere—large spaces that felt cozy and comfortable, and something that was widely appealing to anyone,” Foxman says of his vision for the property. We think Paul did a fabulous job to reach her clients’ goals. When we go through the album of the finished project, we can feel thE causal relaxing California coziness with a high style. We specially like how she approached decoration for the powder room and dining room—“I wanted to have some elements of surprise; spaces that were a little more offbeat than the rest of the home, but still elegant in their own way,” Paul says.
We also love kitchen, master bath , herss closet and outdoor patio. Let’s take a look :
The beginning of the new year is a great time to create a new look for your home. How excited it is! Today we are going to share 8 tips to fresh up your small spaces. But first of all, we will need to have a right mindset—a small space can have a big style. We guess you are with us. So please read on and see if any of the following advises can be of help to you.
Step 1: Choose a small space that you use daily and need an update to make this space organized and stylish so you feel your life can be on the track in 2020. They can be your kitchen open shelves, your pantry, your powder room, your entry,…etc. And of course your dress room. You may say that I don’t have a room for dressing up myself. That is ok. It can be a corner of your bedroom or your closet or your master bath. What ever it is, we will need some essentials to make things happen. All right, so today we are going to use dress room or dress space as a case study.
We actually just re-designed this dress room from a closet. A good thing about this closet is that it has a tall window. So step 2 to transform any small space is to bring in a lot of natural light if you are lucky. If that is not your case, you always can throw in some table lamps, floor lamps or indirection LEDs to create pretty cozy atmosphere.
Step 3 is to have a fresh paint for your small space. A new coat of paint will change your space in a second. If your small space has a lot of light, we recommend to go for light color just like we did for this small dress-up room. And if your small space is a complete dark space without any window, we recommend to use rich tones to create an enveloped jewel box. So you can totally relax there with your weekend home-made cocktails or Kabucha tea.
Step 4: Upholster anything you have in that space, it can be a vanity chair , a makeup desk or a bench. You can even add some trims for your upholstered piece just like the way we added Grace key trims for the below makeup desk. The trim detail will uplift your small space in a big way.
Step 5: Layer up different styles and different elements to make your small space fun and interesting with your personality. We add a pretty modern pillow in this dress room to break away from the dressy style and still have the pillow in blush color to keep the cohesive vibe.
Step 6: Have sparkling crystals to make your small space dazzling.
Step 7: Have some fresh flowers or preserved flowers to make your small space alive.
Step 8: Yes, art please.

Ok, today, we are going to talk about Renée Zellweger’s stunning Baby Blue dress on the 77th Golden Globe. Obviously, she is not only one of the Best Actress but also one of the best dressed.
This is Zellweger’s fourth Golden Globe win. She won her first Golden Globe in 2001 for her rule in “Nurse Betty.” The next came in 2003 for “Chicago,” followed by 2004 for “Cold Mountain.”
The 47-year-old actress, whose portrayal of Judy Garland in Rupert Goold’s biopic, arrived at the 2020 Golden Globes in a strapless baby blue custom-made Armani Privé gown, featuring a thigh-high slit and crystal-embroidered piping. Zellweger pulled her blonde hair back in a loose updo and wore a soft pink lipstick. She accessorized with matching Jimmy Choo pumps and a gold cuff. Renée completed her outfit with a David Webb gold and diamond bracelet.
She does look stunning in that baby blue gown. So the look is sleek, modern, chic yet classic at the same time. Our take-aways to create Renee’s timeless modern classic look:
Minimalism yet elegant form
Yes, ice blue please,
A touch of glamor—her gold bracelet and crystal pipings on her blue gown
Have something loose( her loose hair style) to relax the overall look.
At the beginning of the year, you are properly planning to renovate your home in 2020. So we gather some information here on how celebrities design their home.Design for Entertaining “I entertain for a living, and I entertain,” Jennifer Aniston told AD in 2010, on a tour of her Beverly Hills mansion. “The house has a rather glamorous, old-fashioned Hollywood quality,” she said at the time. “I can just imagine the Rat Pack stopping by; someone is playing the piano, and people are laughing in the next room.” Her home was meticulously designed with warm woods, shag rugs, and Asian influences like koi ponds and a cascading chandelier—and Aniston said she wanted the house to feel like “a big hug. People can get so distracted by static, I love the silence here.” Warm, Inviting just like an oil painting You can click here to read our blog on one of Aniston’s home. Pocket Door and Pink Glass Obsession “I have a pocket door obsession, and a pink glass obsession,” Tyler told AD in 2019, on a tour of her West Village townhouse, which she’s owned since 2001. After a gut renovation, Tyler installed many pocket sliding doors, to allow for privacy or more open, free-flowing spaces. And on the top master floor, she put in a unique skylight. “I decided I wanted to put in this pink tinted glass, and everyone thought I was crazy, but it gives such an amazing warm light to the space.” In the airy master bathroom, she put in sliding pocket doors with pink textured glass panes, combining her two favorite things.

When Jenner took AD on a tour of her new Hidden Hills, California, home in 2019, it was a tranquil, spalike wash of whites, grays and blues, with plenty of plants and contemporary artwork. “My job is so hectic and chaotic. I’m always running a million miles an hour. I wanted my home to feel like a sanctuary, perfectly calm and peaceful,” she explained. “I love a really open floor plan because it makes me feel really zen and relaxed…and colors [like this] just make me feel so calm.” Tranquility was top of mind for Jenner as she designed her space.
