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.
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.
6. Just install an over-sized mirror to bounce light, reflect space, create a dilution of much bigger space.
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.
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!
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:
Use large-format tile on the floor and central wall to make the small space look bigger.
Paint the side walls in a light-gray stripe pattern to make the space feel classic yet playful.
The black lacquered vanity floating on the floor is the truly focal point of this powder room.
The beautiful streamline modern European style faucet is a good match to the straight-line pulls on the vanity.
The classic painting with a gilded frame adds a magical soft feminine feeling to the space.
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.
A couple of mini-chairs or a bench to create a cozy seating area.
Have a piece of your favorite artwork on the entry wall to show off your taste.
Have a plush area rug with a big pattern to add a touch of drama.
