Did you watch iHeart Living Room Concert hosted by  Elton John  last Sunday? The concert was to help combat the current coronavirus pandemic.  If not, you can watch the whole concert by clicking here.

The concert was pretty awesome.  The star-studded benefit featured at-home performances by the likes of Alicia Keys, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, Dave Grohl and more. Tim McGraw, Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong and Sam Smith also performed, while Demi Lovato, Lizzo and Lady Gaga made special appearances during the evening encouraging fans with messages of hope and positivity.

For us, we are also very excited to see a little bit how these celebrities live and what their living rooms look like. Read on to see our 9 takeaways on how these Celebrities’ live.

1. The navy blue sofas are the most popular ones in these celebrities home.

Alicia Keys’ mid-century navy blue tufted sectional is chic, comfy and stylish. An orange pillow just adds a perfect pop of color. The navy blue in the artwork over the sectional and her piano continue the blue theme. Then a wood oval mid century modern coffee-table breaks the navy blue theme and let the eye take a rest.

Our Chic Backyard Picnic

At this strange time, it is  important to find joy in any moment. So, we decided to have a casual family picnic in our backyard last Saturday. It is spring and the weather is nice.

1IMG_3383

So under our lush lemon tree, we set up this picnic area. Yes, we want to use pink as base color since it will nicely contrasts with lush greenery and pastel spring blooms. And yes, we threw in a lot of plush pillows  just to create that super comfy, chic laid-back vibes. Who wouldn’t?

1IMG_3434

And my Gosh, this is a truly heaven!  And we love to  mix and match different patterns of textiles just for some visual interest.

Wow, it is also such a special treat to do some reading right here. The greenery, spring blooms, lemon fragrance, sunshine,the nice breeze … etc, what could be better? Is this the best season of the year to enjoy our picnic at our backyard?

It is  time to set up our  cocktail table with some beautiful potted hydrangeas.

We are going to serve some home-made cocktails without sugar, rosé, Sauvignon Blanc

fresh fruits, cheese plates… Would like to join us?

And we love mix and match different patterns of textiles just for some visual interest. We also love collecting unique  design of the wine bottles.  We went a color palette of bright red, hot pink, pale pink, Classic Blue, light blue…. This is just such a dreamy spring color scheme that makes everyone happy.

The subtle gold wall-covering elevates and lights up a narrow hallway . A fresh orange flower arrangement adds a dose of excitement. We love the view in the hallway that is able to see a very elegant drapery on the landing area of the stairs , which hints a sophisticated taste for the rest of the home.

The almost monogram of color of green creates such an elegant, soothing and luxurious feel while the mustard lounge chair, bright yellow flowers and pink on the artwork truly spice up this lovely living room.  A neutral nature are rug ground the whole space and let the eye take a break from all of the greens here.  The mood here is quiet yet cheerful—a kind of feeling we are all desperate to create for our home.

Home Tour—an Elegantly Layered New York Apartment

 

In the middle of the week, we all look for a little bit inspiration to carry on. We came across designer Lilse McKenna’ New York apartment and truly amazed by how she re-arranged the overall layout to maximize storage while still keeping a high style.  Let’s take a look at her NYC apartment home together.

1. A balanced color palette.

03 Living Room_Lilse Mckenna lead

The red vintage velvet sofa is aN original piece. We are glad  that Lilse still keeps the way it is. And she balanced the bright red color with a lot of blue and white in this room. By doing so, she is not only able to  make the room feel bright and airy, but also able to showcase the fabulous artwork on the wall and patterned fabric on the throw pillows, lamp shades and ottoman cover as well.

2. Style her mantle with books.

4 Tips to Bring fun to Your Family Room with High Style

 

With closing down of  state and county parks, beach fronts in California , once again, we will have to spend more time  in our home. The human nature is that the longer you stay in one place, the more you start to focus on every details.  And that may drive you crazy. Our experience is that maybe it is time for you to do something. Rather than just staring at something that is not pleasing to the eye, do something about it–de-cluttering, re-organizing and creating something beautiful. So at the end of the day, you can at least take a break and enjoy your labor fruits. Read on to learn how bring more fun to your family room in style.

1. Take advantage of your view if you are lucky to have one.

082716_SherwoodHouseMakeover_19

 

Please, please free up your space in front of your windows or your patio door if you happen to have a  view of a beautiful garden, a meadow,  magical mountains, breath-taking ocean or deep green forest. In the photo above, we love how the blue velvet sofa sits against a wall  and oversees the outdoor view. The trick here is those two striped upholstered X-benches. They will not block your outdoor views. Rather, they provide flexible seating options.

2. Have a corner table setup

022417_KateRheinstenBrodksy_25SalesEvent_78605_Lifestyle_1

One of benefits of having a corner table-set up in your family room is that it is able to use the dead space in the corner and creates a new activity zone  (such as game table)for the whole family.  You know we all have that feeling when we sit around a table in Starbucks and we intend to be able to focus on our reading or our work although it is pretty noisy in the surroundings.  And fun part is that  you can add your own decor style and personality.

Fashion Has a Healing Power

 

If you are just like us and read too much news on development of COVID-19, it is time to take a break and enjoy something that is pleasing to the eye. We came across some amazing fashion pictures over the week and chose some of them to share on our blog today.  The reason we chose the following photos because they make us feel so fresh in the way how they combine unexpected colors together and how they put the different styles of pieces together. It’s truly an art.
