We guess we all want a little bit fun nowadays in our home and of course in our home office since this is the place where we stay focus and creative all day long. That is why we use this emerald green zebra wallpaper in this office space to set the tone of playfulness and add a right dose of rich color. The caramel brown thick Acacia veneer curved writing desk is quiet and elegant. An abstract green artwork has a tone-on-tone effect by layering on the top of the green wallpaper. A burnt auburn velvet office chair is comfy and warm. The brass table lamp brings in a touch of glam.
This glam living room features with a curved super long sofa, a pair of leather lounge chairs, a modernized wing chair in grey fabric , a pair of natural-wood coffee table with acrylic legs, light grey-and- white geometric wallpaper and a silk area rug. A 60″x60″ abstract artwork brings in color, movement and characters to the space. A raisin sheep sculpture is fun and playful.
We have developed an appetite for tone-on-tone neutral palettes in the past year. We firmly believe that all these neutrals help create a soothing and relaxing home—the ultimate sanctuary for most of us under the current situation. We find out that if we do it right, the tone-on-tone color scheme will make home interiors high style and timeless. The challenge is often on how to create a monochromatic home that has a depth, dimensions and warmth. We came across this urban Chicago home and fell in love with its aesthetic. Yes, it has varied shades of grays and subtle pops of jewel tones— a perfect case study for a monochromatic home that is fresh, clean, modern yet elegant and sophiticated.
The entry is painted in Benjamin Moore’s Cape May Cobblestone which sets the tone of a crisp, monochromatic palette for the rest of the home. The gray leather on the seats add textures while the dark brown wood flooring evokes a warm feeling. The brass details on the console lamp and the mirror above elevate the entry with a touch of glam. And of course, the loose floral arrangement enlivens the space. You can click here for more ideas on entry design.
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.
Chinoiserie has been around centuries thanks to its timeless and elegant design. Chinoiserie wallpaper was used to be a status symbol because they were all hand-painted in the past. With the advanced digital printing technologies, the Chinoiserie wallpaper has became more affordable over the years although we still love to offer our clients the hand-painted ones if they have the budget. Chinoiserie is the European interpretation and imitation of Chinese and other East Asian artistic traditions, especially in the decorative arts, garden design, architecture, literature, theater, and music. We have blogged chinoiserie in dining rooms, today we are going to share 21 Chinoiserie bedroom ideas.

This well-designed London home has everything we want– a modernized Victoria architectural bone with minimizing detail, a soft color palette of grey and white, a master mixing-and-matching of old and new, the dynamic use of natural materials such as marble, wood and concrete. the top-notch craftsmanship and a lot of natural light.
With minimized decor accessories, the classical architectural details are really able to shine and stand out.
Sometimes, the bold design and pops of color are all you need to elevate your home to the next level. We came across this Nashville home with art, music and bold design and would love to share some of our favorite spaces.
The animal print area rug elevates this all-white space and adds a touch of glamor. It is such a creative way to put a vintage Hans Wegner coffee table and 1960s marble nesting table together–a nice contrast of textures.
