Tour a Collector’s Airy, Light yet Inimitable London Dwelling

As we have being experienced the on-going pandemic, we often ask ourselves a question, what colors or color schemes really reflect our current mood and inspire us to live better , happier and enjoy every moment. We have blogged the new color trends and colors of the year 2021 in our recent posts. But we do believe that we are all different and react color differently. Some of us may need a super bright color scheme to push through this strange time while others just need some muted neutrals to calm down and feel anchored. Today, we are going to tour a collector’s London apartment which incorporates both worlds of the soothing neutrals to create a gallery atmosphere and of rich dark color schemes for a cozy and intimate feel. Here are some of our favorites:

Tour an Art-Filled West Hollywood Home

We all need a little bit inspiration with the current pandemic situation. Today we will take you to a gorgeous modernized Spanish colonial house in West Hollywood and it is filled with amazing art and color. This beautiful home is owned by music and fashion industry veteran Kent Belden and husband Dr. Louis Re and designed by AD 100 Brigette Romanek. We first met Barigette in one of the seminars she spoke on design week in PDC. She is such a warm, nice, approachable elegant lady and her design is often vibrant, fashion-forward and unexpected. Here are some of our highlights from the house.

House Tour—-A Fashionable Home at Greenwich Village

Our recent blogs have featured homes with a light and airy vibe. Today, we decide to go to a different style—a home with a fashionable flair by using  colors. Why not? Color is a therapy that heal us and make us feel good.  We have included color in one of principles of wellness at home .  Here are the highlights of our favorite spaces.

Entry

edc-web-house-tour-fuller03-1586874949

From the entry, you probably won’t tell this is going be a colorful home.  Instead a large silver artwork by Anselm Reyle and a geometric black console and dark brown round mirror make a statement by  forms and  rather keep the color palette simple and neutral. We can feel a very masculine energy here.

Library

edc-web-house-tour-fuller02-1586874955

The neutral palette continues in the living room. But here, two of white curved sofa create a very inviting, cozy and elegant atmosphere here. We feel the feminine energy here. We love how chic and stylish side tables and ottoman with jewel-tone colors just casually sit around those two of the curved white sofa . They are just like beautiful and adorable accessories for this home.

 

Library

edc-web-house-tour-fuller01-1586874950

Now color starts to play in this family library. The blue color here is exciting yet very calming too. The colors on walls  and furniture pull out the color palette from an abstract artwork atop the fireplace to grantee a harmonious and cohesive feel even though bold colors are applied in this space.

 

Reading Area

edc-web-house-tour-fuller06-1586874949

We love this warm pink on two of  these reading settees.

 

Bar

edc-web-house-tour-fuller09-1586874922

A black bar cabinet and a black vase on top of is understate yet stylish and also well uses the niche space  here.

 

Dining Area

edc-web-house-tour-fuller04-1586874955

This blue wall by the dining area is opposite the above blue wall. So the key to use a bold color  still keeping a balanced and harmonious feel is to repeat the color in a symmetric way.  Those hanging little pendants above the dining table are just like jewels for this home. The warm brown on the velvet dining chairs is inviting and nicely contrasts with and well balances off the blue  on the walls here.

This swing bed is a great idea when you have a limited space but still want to have some fun.

Tour An Ethereal New York City Loft With A West Coast Vibe

 

Home in West Coast is all about light, airy and coziness.  A pristine loft apartment with soaring ceilings and monumental windows in a historic 19th-century building in NYC  was just transformed into a cozy West -Coast-like home. Here are the highlights of our favorites.

 

Entry

The loft is full of natural light. So the earthy elements such as wood panelings were introduced to anchor this light-filled space. We love this  mixed-media piece by Thea Djordjadze  over the console.  A stump stool is just adorable.  The take-away design lesson here is to have the master artwork and unique furnishings  in the entry to create that wow factor while using earthy elements to delivery an inviting and understated feel.

Art for Home

There is a magical about art at home. It brings the unique meaning and energy to a room. It enlivens any space. And it can trigger a conversation.  Although art often is about a personal taste, sometime, we choose one for our clients thanks to their trust and confidence on us.  If so, we would love to consider the color scheme, scale and theme to either elegantly blend in the room, or create a nice contrast and some surprises. The purpose is always to please the eye, bring pleasure to the heart, encourage a conversation or deep thinking, inspire imagination or inject a fresh energy to the space. Or it can be something that is very special to our clients.  Believe it or not, sometimes, we just want to relax a little bit. There is no particular reason to choose this art over others. Maybe it’s the love at the first sight. That might be the magical of the art.
