My favorite are always about blue-and-whites, greenery, pink blooms, gardens, sunshine, fresh air… How about you? How are you going to celebrate MemorialLong-weekend?

It’s finally Friday and its grey, cloudy and overcast in LA. I thought the rain is coming but Siri said no. Anyway, it will be a perfect day to cuddle at home, doing some heavy readings and just gathering all of my thoughts together. I came across some topics on interior trends in 2018. One of the trends that everybody is talking about is Maximalism. I talked about Maximalism in one of my blog last year and it seems that this trend is going to mainstream in 2018. For me, Maximalism is so inevitable after several-years of Kondoing and Scandinavia minimalism. It gives you a such big release and freedom to express yourself. When you start to see a lot of colors, patterns , textures and adoring objects, you truly feel happy from inside.
First of all, here is the food. This is one of of the events we went recently. Don’t you just love these colorful veggies?
And here is the tabletop I just did for our MLK weekends. Don’t you agree with me—the more the merrier?
Here are some great plates and linens with patter-on-pattern Maximalism style.
Then here is the art event we went recently. It’s Pip & Pop’s debut US installation entitled “Here Comes Sunshine”. The installation is constructed by highly detailed works that embrace notions of abundance, utopian dreams and fleeting pleasure. The installation made me feel so happy for the whole night.
Last but not else, here are some great Maximalism interiors I really enjoy.
Hope you enjoy your 4th July holiday. Here is ours by the poolside. The fabric, decorative pillows, outdoor draped daybeds and lounge chairs really put us in a relaxing mood. Maybe you can get some inspirations to dress up your poolside.
One of the best things about Chinese New Year is that there is 7 days to celebrate. And today is the 3rd day.
One of the traditions about Chinese New year is to burn incenses to worship ancestors and pray for the best for the new year. The experience is just absolutely beautiful.
For this year, we created a series of interiors featured with Chinese antique and Chinoiserie styles to celebrate the year of the rooster. For this particular dining set in the following video, the inspiration comes from the tradition that Chinese burn incenses to worship the kitchen god on the 3rd day of the Festival. The set features with antique Huanghuali arm chairs, Ming dining table, pagoda chandelier chinoiserie wallpaper and Louis XVI gilded mirror.
