Weekend Vibes

 

“Less Talk, More Ice Cream”, what about talks over ice cream?

I love just scrolling  around the neighborhoods of  Los Angeles to experience diversified cultures, find new cool shops with quirky interiors, or simply having my sweet-treats and batheing in the sunshines.  What about you? How do you spend your weekends?

A Day of Traveling Part II

 

We just had another big earth quick last night in SoCal after the 6.4 one on 4th July! It is 7.1!  Send love and prayer to people who are affected seriously. And I followed Dr. Lucy Jones from CalTech last night the whole night for her analysis on what’s going on. Somehow, listening to her gives me a sense of peace.

 

Well, when natural disasters happen, we know we need to appreciate all of the beautiful things around us more.  So, guys, let’s continue our Day of Traveling—Part II. There are a lot of beautiful photos for the modern classic interiors I caught during the trip, so it’s time to  sit back and relax.

Arte-decor clubbing house.  The geometric black-and-white rug does the wander for this room. And of course, the brown leather tufted mid-century chairs, the fireplace and wooden wall panelings add the layer of old school traditions  and bring the stories and warmth to the space.

Such an airy and light-filled sitting area. Color of Live Coral on my dress  kind of pops up   in this muted creamy background. The wall panelings add the depth to the space.

Love how they pared orange with silver champaign leaf.

I always have a thing with sheer roman shades—they often soften the lights shining through the windows.

in love with this full-body French-pleated drapery—it’s elevated this cozy beachy hanging-out area. Yes, we are ready for a good conversation oner the afternoon-tea.

A Day of Travelling Part I

Our 4th of July trip started out with a little plan. We have a general ideas where we are going and what we would like to do–sighting seeing, eating, drinking, visiting historical architecture, new interiors, chatting with strangers, chilling out by the beach, walking through the woods, etc… Then during trip, there are just as lot of spontaneous decisions, whatever strikes our curiosity…

LA Street Style I

Spring is here. The warmer weather and blooms magically  put everyone  in a very cheerful mood.  So, we took the opportunity and wander around LA street to immerse ourselves in the season and get inspired.

 

STREET3
I always have a thing about bicycles. I love purple and flowers in this picture! It’s a dream if I can just ride a bicycle with full blooms in a small quiet beach town.  If you happen to plan some make-over for your home, lilac is one of the good choices. I specially like lilac in matte finish.  And also, remember have some fresh flowers at home!   They will make you feel much happier!
STREET1
It’s a late afternoon. I like how the sun shines on the industrial building creating interesting shadows. This hot pink minimalism bench is such a eye candy in  contrast with the grayish industrial surroundings. Spring finally broke through the coldness and is here with a little bit surprise and cheer. Take -away— for your interiors, don’t just pile things up,  rather intentionly  layer different things through creating interesting contrast!
STREET2
Graffiti on LA street is always my inspiration.  Take-away for interiors: please always have some artworks for your home. They are the soul for each space. They make your lifestyle much deeper.
STREET5.jpg
Wood just brings the warmth for this high-ceiling modern space with a lot of whites.

Cool rope lighting in this sun-lit cozy Japanese restaurant. I always love the room with a lot of natural lights

A Stylish Tabletop from an Art Opening

Guys, it’s middle of the week.  We probably all need a little bit refreshing break from the busy week. I recently went to an art opening reception and was really amazed by how they styled the table with all natural ingredients and beautiful spring colors. Of course, the food was just beyond fresh and delicious.  Everything  was made from scratch. So they are local and very Los Angeles. Here are some photos and a video I would love to share with you:

IMG_4313-2.jpg
It’s a relaxed vibe. Spring is here. Everything is so fresh and just out of the garden.  Don’t you just love these spring colors? They look yummy!
IMG_4308-1
The spicy Tofu rolls are gone but I just love these beautiful leaves.
IMG_4309-1
Yes. Rapeseed is in full bloom in Los Angeles.  I love how they style rapeseed flowers  together with pomegranate seeds–so spring!

Here are the spicy tofu rolls. They goes very fast!

In case, you are interested  in learning their story, here is the link.  I hope you get some inspirations for your backyard spring parties.  Life is about celebrating the moments.

A New New York Vintage Restaurant in Vegas

Whenever I go to Vegas, I always love to schedule some time to check out the new restaurants.  Ken Fulk is one of my favorites designers based in New York and I follow his Instagram. He recently posted this awesome restaurant he designed —Sadelle’s ,  Bellagio.   It is kind of  vintage New York vibe, very chic.  I really like the color palette–pink, green, blue and gold— he used for the restaurant and decided to visit this time for my KBIS trip.

This is the shot from Bellagio Botanic Garden. Love all pale-blue ceilings and wall panels.  The first impression—very un-Vegas but Paris-inspired instead.

Open air yet still inviting and intimate thanks to the elegant to-the-floor drapery panels.

seating area—love the emerald green couch and flower pink chairs

KF-10

KF-11
 Pleated brass wall scones—classic vibes

I think the main successes  for this restaurant project:

  1. Vintage and classic color palette;
  2. Drapes and upholstery soften the 10,000 square foot space
  3.  Intimate lighting complements soft furnishings, wood tables, brass accents, mirrored walls and coffered ceilings.

 

What about food–“a breakfast-centric morning, power lunch spot mid-day, and a dinner experience at night right in front of the resort’s Conservatory and Botanical Garden as the backdrop” Click here and see reviews from foodies

Pantone Color of the Year 2017

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.”

Happy Tuesday

A Day Trip to Adamson House

It will be always wonderful to visit some historical architecture in a sunny day.  Adamson House , a  enchanted beach house, located in Malibu, California, was built in 1929 by Rindge family.  It is a typical Spanish Colonial Revival style home.  We really enjoyed our day there.  What really special about this house is the decorative tiles they used through the house.   Such a beautiful craftsman-work!
