Guys, Happy valentine’s Day! It has been raining whole day here in Los Angeles. It’s a perfect day to enjoy my little world of romance on this raining day. Yet I wish everyone out there safe and stay out of the rain.
I am still in the process to work out our spring collections in fashion, home and art. It has been a a fun journey so far. Spring is all about hope, freshness, flowers, greenery, everything beautiful in mother nature. I have been inspired by nature and by all of the new designs in 2019 everyday. For the vignette I created for Valentine’s Day, it is about all of these—fun, romantic and boho chic:
When the sun shines through the windows, that is when magic happens. We realize it is spring time. Fresh, fashionable and feminine, this IS the theme for our Spring Story collection in fashion, home and art:
Every time when people talk about California coastal interiors, it is always kind of either white, cream or blueish color palettes with signature California lay-back vibes. But not for this one. It is located right at Corona Del Mar , So Cal and has a perfect polished modern classical style with maximalism in mind. The home is owned by Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson, the co-founders of the California-based cosmetics brand Too Faced. Then, I guess you expect some big wows!
Interior designer Mary MacDonald create such wonderful color palettes for each room:
For some weired reason, I always have a mood for color of pink on Wednesday. What about you? What is your mood color on Wednesday? From hot pink, blush to muted pastel, pink always evokes feeling of romance, dream, elegance, feminism, sophistication and sweetness.
It looks like we do use a lot of pink in our design projects.
Chinese New Year is going to be Feb 16th. And we are brainstorming a special tabletop for both V day and Chinese New Year celebration. It’s going to a very feminine, romantic yet a cheerful color-palette theme incorporating Pantone Ultra Violet, vintage pink, some chinoiserie components. And of course a lot of fresh roses. Please stay tuned with us.
It’s finally Friday and its grey, cloudy and overcast in LA. I thought the rain is coming but Siri said no. Anyway, it will be a perfect day to cuddle at home, doing some heavy readings and just gathering all of my thoughts together. I came across some topics on interior trends in 2018. One of the trends that everybody is talking about is Maximalism. I talked about Maximalism in one of my blog last year and it seems that this trend is going to mainstream in 2018. For me, Maximalism is so inevitable after several-years of Kondoing and Scandinavia minimalism. It gives you a such big release and freedom to express yourself. When you start to see a lot of colors, patterns , textures and adoring objects, you truly feel happy from inside.
First of all, here is the food. This is one of of the events we went recently. Don’t you just love these colorful veggies?
And here is the tabletop I just did for our MLK weekends. Don’t you agree with me—the more the merrier?
Here are some great plates and linens with patter-on-pattern Maximalism style.
Then here is the art event we went recently. It’s Pip & Pop’s debut US installation entitled “Here Comes Sunshine”. The installation is constructed by highly detailed works that embrace notions of abundance, utopian dreams and fleeting pleasure. The installation made me feel so happy for the whole night.
Last but not else, here are some great Maximalism interiors I really enjoy.
Hello, Monday! It’s a fresh start. It’s a day to plan and go over the schedule of the whole week. We all have a busy schedule and tones of events to go. Coco Chanel said ,“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” Let’s do things and go to events that develop us, inspire us, make us much stronger.
