We have actually developed an appetite for the tonal neutral interiors as we have been going through the whole pandemic thing since last year, particularly those interiors with a lot of natural light. Those homes are truly heavenly sanctuaries that allow us to wind down, relax and rejuvenate. So, when we came across landscaping architect Perry Guillot’s Southampton escape on AD, we feel the similar verve and fell in love with this serene escape–a playhouse with a garden that is inspired by nothing short of cosmos and has tonal white stucco walls. Guillot is known for the artfully restrained gardens he has created for such clients as Tory Burch, Aerin Lauder, and Reed and Delphine Krakoff.
The clipped hollies embrace the main entrance of the playhouse. It looks like the sky is on the earth.
We love how the lush textured sprawling plants contrast with the clean-lined white house.Continue reading
It is an art to make a home both sophiticated and livable. Luckily, we came across such a home when we searched inspiration today. The house is located in the historic northwest Portland neighborhood of Kings Heights. It took five years to complete the interiors of this 1922 Federal-style 5,400-square-foot house. The design team did such a great work to find a way to make the home feel open…while still respecting the period of the house.
We love the muted white paint on the walls and all of the natural elements from the rug to hanging bags that bring in a touch of nature. The arch doorways , the details on the doors and a framed artwork indicate a sophiticated taste of the owners.Continue reading

Today we are going to take a look at a new restaurant in Paris— Mon Square. It’s chic, cute, colorful and use quite a lot of pink. The restaurant has begun to pull in a lively crowd of film stars, politicians, diplomats, neighborhood regulars, and young and trendy Parisians. It is French designer Florence Lopez‘s first public work. We definitely love her approach to make the restaurant inviting, soft, welcome and intimate –kind of the approach when we design residential projects.Continue reading
We often found our inspiration by looking into nature. Nature always knows what is the best balance in terms of colors, textures and scales. In our recent hiking trips, we were fascinated how color of blue, lavender nicely contrast with earthy tones such as brown, taupe , stone grey and etc…
