It is one day away from Halloween. We FINALLY feel the chill of fall in Los Angeles thanks to the strong Santa Ana wind today. Our yesterday’sCelebrate Color of Orange—5 Ways to Incorporate Color of Orange into Your House has gotten super popular. If you haven’t read, you can click here to read. Today we are going to share 4 spiced pumpkin rooms from Schumacher Archive.
Spiced pumpkin drapery is such a nice contrast with the timeless black-white geometrical-patterned wallpaper. The pairing is just like a balanced Yin and Yang. I am always drawn to a skirted table-cloth on the round table in the living room. Somehow, a table-cloth always elevates the space in a second. Suddenly we are ready for a gathering. And of course, the yellow roses on the blue-and-white vases just add another cheerful layer in this happy moment.
Its looks like that we have been busy for photo shooting recent. Some are for the newly finished projects and some are for seasonal theme-decor ideas. Today, we were shooting for our fall catalogues. Please have a sneak peek.
The whole design inspiration is really from this cute pendant. We love the color palette and texture of this pom pom mini-chanderlier. And of course we know that fall is coming although we are still embracing 90 degree hot weather here in Los Angeles. So far, our mood is adding some saturated jewel tone while still keeping the overall color palette cool with highlights of different shades of blue and crisp white. Here are some product links you may find them help for your projects:
One of the things I am passionate about all the time is to set up a tabletop for whatever the reasons . It’s fun and it’s about celebrating life with beautiful things. Here are 5 elements to successfully set up a table:
Runners, placemats, or fresh-patterned tablecloth
Floral enter piece
Here is the before photo from one of our projects:
One of my favorite things to do over the summer weekends is scrolling around little beach towns in the neighborhood. I couldn’t think where I can go to get some fresh cool beach breeze , explore unexpected vintage founds and enjoy my different colors of macarons. Often, the color palettes on the hight streets of these little towns are so fascinated that they put me in such a relaxing mood. I start to slow down and really take time to absorb and observe my surroundings. So, today I am going to feature color of red. Color of red refers to passion, happiness , positive vibes, high fashion, romance. When pairing with pale blue, pink , black and blush, it creates different moods.
We just had another big earth quick last night in SoCal after the 6.4 one on 4th July! It is 7.1! Send love and prayer to people who are affected seriously. And I followed Dr. Lucy Jones from CalTech last night the whole night for her analysis on what’s going on. Somehow, listening to her gives me a sense of peace.
Well, when natural disasters happen, we know we need to appreciate all of the beautiful things around us more. So, guys, let’s continue our Day of Traveling—Part II. There are a lot of beautiful photos for the modern classic interiors I caught during the trip, so it’s time to sit back and relax.
Spring is here. The warmer weather and blooms magically put everyone in a very cheerful mood. So, we took the opportunity and wander around LA street to immerse ourselves in the season and get inspired.
Finally, rain stops and sun is out. And most importantly, the weather is finally getting warm up to 70 degree in Los Angeles. I know it has been a weird cold for a very long time since last Nov. I think I prefer the warmer weather with a lot sunshines. Who wouldn’t?
Well, it is March and spring is just around the corner and Easter is coming soon. I just cannot wait to put up a beautiful outdoor tabletop for entertaining with some fresh color palettes and romantic components. What about you?
So, I decided to go through some photos and videos from the events we have been to recently for inspiration. Then I found this video I shot—I wish I could have done it better. Maybe next time. But the whole set-up, organic components, the sun-lights, crystals and yummy cookies in pastel colors and of course fresh flower pedals really talk to me. I love how they have a large wood branch as a center piece with elegant crystal sculptures scattering around. The contrast between organic elements and high-polished items creates such a beautiful , moody, refined yet relaxed and casual atmosphere. And fresh flower pedals all over the table are just such a romantic touch. It’s a dream afternoon.
