Actually every color is beautiful and it often takes time to study them. The more you look at them, the more  you will fall in love with them. And the most important thing is that how do  you pair them with other colors to create a mood, a scene and a story that is intrigue and interesting.

6 Designer Wall Covering Ideas to Uplift Your Interiors II

Hello, guys, TGIF! It’s another long and hot week. I hope everyone is still doing great!  Have you read my 6 Designer Wall Covering Ideas to Uplift Your Interiors I? If you haven’t, please click here to read And today, I am going to share the rest 3 ideas that you can do  to elevate your living space without doing big construction job.

4. Hang some artworks (or create a gallery wall) that talk to you and coordinate or uniform your current interiors. The frame, the theme, color palettes, the arrangement and how high you should hang them onto the walls all play important roles to create that pleasant artsy decor. Click here to learn some tips on how to hang your artwork like a pro.

I really love how they hang this artwork on the blush wall of this pastry’s outdoor space. It is a very chic outdoor space like indoor. The pastel color palette of the artwork is similar to the blush wall background.  Yet pop of the color on the artwork  really make the whole space alive.

Again, the artwork on the wall with pop of violet color adds a freshness to this monogram-themed space—chic and fashionable
project-19
One of the traditional projects we did—the liliac elegant drapes pull out the lilac and lavender colors on the artworks on the wall to create cohesive and harmonious vibe.
project-1
another project we did—the pink paint on the background wall pairing red color on lady’s dress creates very romantic, feminine feeling for the space.
IMG_2406-1
One of our project–the black and white print on the wall is calming this home office with saturated colors and bold patterns.
IMG_6846
one of our projects—the same creams color palette on the wall and in the artwork creates this  dreamy lounge area.

5. Stencil them up. You may not a big fan of wallpaper, although they are not your grandmother’s wallpaper and there are tones of cool designs out there and they are also much easier to get rid of in case you change your mind. You can stencil you walls instead. The key thing here is you’d got some patterns that work in your space and you have a good painter who know how to do a good job.

One of our projects—instead using stripe wallpaper, we stenciled the vanity wall  with stripe pattern.
IMGP8166-1
one of our projects—the vanity wall in this powder room is tiled with  large-format tiles and mother-pearl mosaic inserts from Italy. To save the cost, we stenciled the wall on the both sides of vanity walls in light gloss gray and matte gray— subtle yet still make a statement 
stencilwall
We totally custom-made this rose stencil walls in my client’s dining room. You can click here for the details.

6. Just install an over-sized mirror to bounce light, reflect space, create a dilution of much bigger space.

Spring House Tour—April

 

Fresh flowers, jewel tones, pastel color palette, floral patterns are the elements that make spring decor exciting, fresh and chic.  Here is the design project we did to perfect illustrate spring theme.  It’s feline, glamor, classical yet modern and well balanced off with masculine energy.

entry
the lavender floral wallpaper perfectly plays with black-and-white checkered flooring.  It’s formal yet elegant with some drama.  Perfect for hallway design.

Red velvet upholstered dining chairs truly make a bold and passionate statement for this French-flair dining room.  The blush curved settee lends a hand of casual elegance to this dining room.  The whole design scene reminds us that it’s spring and it’s party time.

We all want a serene corner at home where we can read and simply chill out.  This design vignette features gilded black lacquered console, artworks and an light lavender upholster reading chair.  The blue side table is an antique.

The lavender color continues to the kitchen which features subway tiles, black vintage range hood, white cabinetry and open shelves.

Before and After—Minimulism vs. Maximalism

 

 

I am so happy to read an article in the WSJ that “After decades of stark, formulaic interiors, design is giving way to maximalism—a luxurious riot of color and pattern.” You can read this article right here

 

A powder room is where you wow your guests.  This powder room features pink designer wallpaper, pale blue wainscot panelings, crown moldings, a Waterworks washstand, gilded Louis XVI gilded gold leaf mirror, a custom upholstered floral petite chair, modern marble floor and framed artworks.  The mix-and-match approach of layers, patterns and objects make the space intrigue, elegant and sophisticated.  The transformation from minimalism to maximalism truly deliver a big wow!

Happy Friday

A Minimalism Powder Room

This Friday’s throwback is the powder room we did several years ago.  We did the client’s kitchen and came back to renovate their powder room the very next year. The client loves mid-century  minimalism style with a soft feminine touch. Here is what we did for the client:

  1. Use large-format tile on the floor and central wall to make the small space look bigger.
  2. Paint the side walls in a  light-gray stripe pattern to make the space feel classic yet playful.
  3. The black lacquered vanity floating on the floor is the truly focal point of this powder room.
  4. The beautiful streamline modern European style faucet is  a good match to the straight-line pulls on the vanity.
  5. The classic painting with a gilded frame adds a magical soft feminine feeling to the space.

thursdayentry

 

A cozy seating zone at the entry of home, for sure, will make your guests feel inviting.  Plus, today is #NationalWineDrinkDay. It should be a perfect place to chill a little bit once you come back home and open the door.   Here are 4 ways to create a stylish entry.

  1. A couple of mini-chairs or a bench to create a cozy seating area.
  2. Have a piece of your favorite artwork on the entry wall to show off your taste.
  3. Have a plush area rug with a big pattern to add a touch of drama.
  4. Have some fresh flowers to relax you.
