DTLA has being gone through the major transformation within last several years. Every time, we are here, we always can see something new and feel something new. So it is pretty exciting experience to explore new DTLA for food, cafe, architectures, boutique hotels, museums, etc. And often the landscape of the mix -and- max of the new with historical buildings make the city so charming.
We were recently invited to a preview party of new property in China Town which is really close to city hall. The property is multi-purpose combining with retails and residential. I am pretty amazed by how they use the color, patterns and mid-century furniture they choose.
When we are still embracing all of the shades of Pantone color of the year 2019 –Live Coral, PPG, the paint company with 135 years history just recently introduced its Color of the Year 2020—Chinese Porcelain. Just by the name, your mind starts to imagine those crisp Chinoiserie blue-and-white. Yes, it is kind of blueish color, combining rich cobal blue and moody ink blue. It’s calm, elegant, modern, chic.
Maybe because summer is here and I immediately fell in love with this color. I feel it is so ease on eyes and have a depth.
The Pantone Color announced back Dec. last year that the 2017 Color of the Year: Greenery. It means “revive, restore, renew, replenish, regenerate, rejuvenate, reinvigorate, re-oxygenate. Design is an outlet for all of these fresh beginnings. And the yellow pigment in Greenery references the sun, the symbolic light that people need in these times.”
