We often have fun to mix high and low, old and new and of course different aesthetics. Mixing of all kinds will add interest and character into the space. In order to keep the cohesive vibe overall, we will have to use some common elements to thread through the different layers. And here is the case study for the corner space for the project we recently designed. We would like to create a chic, fresh, elegant, polished decor style while still keeping it inviting and cozy. Here is how we did it—today, we are going to share 6 tips on how we artfully mix high and low, modern and classical, old and new to achieve this goal.
Rule #1, always keep an overall color palette neutral if you are going to take a mix& match approach.
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.

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.

Minimalism yet elegant form

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.

Our Favorite Resources To Refresh Your Home in 2020:
Hi, guys, just let you know if you feel a little bit sad that the holiday season is over, I have a good news for you that Chinese New Year is coming. Yes, Chinese New Year is on 25th of this month and this year is Year of the Rat and you have to celebrate it in a big way because the year of the rat always indicates a big fortune coming to you. So be ready to receive it.
Well, Do above these adorable rats put a big smile on your face? They are created by Shaun Teo Creations in Kuala Lumpur. I am a big fan of Shaun Teo Creations on Instagram. They craft all kinds of cute cakes for different festivals and events. I have been always got inspired by their work. I believe they are now opening pre-orders for those lovely Chinese New Year’s cookies. Just check them out on Instagram.
So, today , since I am truly inspired by the red color they use for their product, I going to talk about Color of Red in home decor.
Red, corresponding with fire, symbolizes good fortune and joy. Red is found everywhere during Chinese New Year and other holiday celebrations and family gatherings.
Here are some inspirations.
Red, specially lacquer red on walls makes rooms look sumptuous and elegant. And of course, you always can choose red as an accent color.
We have a tradition for every New Year’s Day. Yes, we will go to beach to enjoy some sunshine , to be close to the ocean to feel its abundance and greatness. Ocean has a magic power that always calm us and show us there are actually tremendous opportunities and hopes out there in the world. And the most important thing ocean teaches us is to be kind, generous and tolenrant from those who are different from you.
Malibu is a city west of Los Angeles, California. It’s known for its celebrity homes and beaches, including wide and sandy Zuma Beach. To the east is Malibu Lagoon State Beach, known as Surfrider Beach for its waves. Nearby is the Spanish Revival–style Adamson House decorated with historical California hand-made tiles. Malibu is such a lovely beach town in SoCal with pretty relaxing vibes. Our trip this time is to visit Nobu, relax at its breath-taking beach-view porch, take a walk on the pier and just stroll around the town.
Nobu, Malibu is Iron Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Japanese delicacies, plus California fare, in a modern, beachfront space. “Originally opening in the Malibu Country Mart in 1999 as the fourth Nobu location in the United States, Nobu Malibu moved to it’s current location in 2012. The views of the ocean from nearly every seat in the restaurant, as well as Malibu-specific specialty dishes in addition to all of the Nobu classics, make this a destination dining experience not to be missed.” We have been too Nobu restaurant and hotel in Las Vegas. I will say Nobu Malibu has more relaxing beach get-away vibes while the Las Vegas one gears more toward high-caliber clubbing experiences. Each restaurant has their specialities. But one dish we like from both locations is Black Cod Miso. You’ve got to order it if you have a chance to visit.
Known for its five-star cuisine and decadent Japanese-inspired interiors, you’re likely to spot a Kardashian at this California go-to. The LA-based sushi bar is such a celebrity staple, it’s even name-dropped in three Drake songs and a Kanye track. That said, the opening of their luxury hotel Nobu Ryokan Malibu is bound to attract a star-studded guest list. We didn’t get a chance to visit the hotel this time since it is guests-only(maybe next time). But I found an article from Elle Decor talking about this newly opened 5-star hotel.
Overlooking Carbon Beach along the Pacific Coast Highway, the lodge draws from the area’s laidback California style while boasting Nobu’s signature Japanese design.The building’s original structure was a 1950’s beach motel, which architects Studio PCH and Montalba Architects have dramatically transformed. Each guest room has its own unique interior design, all incorporating teak, bronze, and limestone to maintain a calming neutral color palette throughout.

In 2019, the last year of the passing decade, we lost several fashion icons and Lee Radziwill is one of them. She is a former European princess and actress, socialite, interior decorator, sister of the late Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (1994). We wrote about her Paris pied-à-terre . The article is one of our top 10 popular blogs in 2019. We are going to reblog her Paris home today since everything French is one of the top trends in 2020 according to Pinterest report and there are so many great deals going on at the end of the year and we just simply want to help you out if you are planning to refresh or renovate your home in 2020.
Her Paris pied-à-terre is her love at first sight. Overlooking Avenue Montaigne with a view of the Eiffel Tower, the home was originally decorated by Christian Liaigre, it is perhaps one of the most iconic Parisian abodes of the 20th century. Her Paris home was featured three times on magazines, Vogue in 2003, ELLE Decor in 2009 and Times in 2013 and it had being evolved each time.
We can see the style in her Paris apartment is very different from her New York home. As herself said of her New York apartment :” but it’s extremely full. So it’s wonderful to have the contrast [in Paris] of having it totally Zen, totally peaceful. In what other city do you find doves outside your window…” All of the furniture in her Paris home is clean-lined, yet there are gilded antique mirrors, gilded coffee tables, floral upholstery ,tons of artworks and books and a lot of detailed soft touches. Her interiors are just like the way she dressed—modern , elegant and chic, yes American chic.
She photographed in the same living room several times and each time the living room looks a little bit different. There are some changes on fabric, decor objects, floral arrangements, the ways she hanged her artworks. What doesn’t change is her clean-lined furniture and her approach of mixing and matching gilded antique French and her own antique treasures and artworks.

And today, I am going to mainly focus on her fashion style since you know NYE is coming and we all think how to dress ourselves to welcome the next new decade.
We never see her dress sloppy or out of style at any public moment thanks to her signature essentials that have made her who she has been over the decades. So, let’s take a look together:
Sunglasses—we rarely see her without glasses .One of the most famous people in the world of fashion, Wintour, who has been editor since 1988 and artistic director for Condé Nast, Vogue’s publisher, since 2013, is seen sporting her heavy black frames to most runway shows and events. She even kept the glasses on when she sat beside Her Majesty the Queen at Richard Quinn’s London Fashion Week runway show in February 2018.
Her reason to wear the sunglasses often was well explained in a 60 Minutes interview in 2009, she reportedly said: “They are seriously useful. I can sit in a show and if I am bored out of my mind, nobody will notice … At this point, they have become, really, armor.”
Well, for whatever the reason, she just looks very cool with that pair of heavy-framed sunglasses.
