3 Takeaways on How to Create a Happy Place—a Review On the Design of Elle Decor Cafe 2020

We came across an article this morning about Elle Decor Cafe 2020 in Plaza Hotel New York  and immediately fell in love with the unique decor that is modern, youthful, feminine and chic yet still keeping  a old-world charm. Not surprisingly, the make-over design work is by renowned interior designer Sasha Bikoff whose design, in our opinion, is very UN-American—out-of-box, playful, chic and romantic in a very lady-like way. Since today is Friday, we want to talk about the design of this pretty cafe and hope to bring some weekend cheers to you.

The ELLE Decor Café at the Plaza is located at the famed Rose Club, which was once a popular venue for entertainers like Billie Holiday, Bob Hope, Liza Minnelli, and Kay Thompson. Along with showcasing her passion for energetic, global-inspired interiors, Bikoff reimagined the iconic space to reflect its rich jazz roots.

1. color Palette: “Since the Plaza is such a happy, colorful, monumental place, it was really important that I used a light color. We did have these more traditional jewel tones, but I wanted to brighten up the space with pink and lavender to balance all of the wood paneling. One really wonderful thing is that the ceiling lights can turn purple, so it worked out perfectly that I had a fabric that was red (a connection to the Rose Club) and lavender (a connection to the lights on the ceiling).”—Sasha Bikoff

We love the interplay between  pink  and rouge to create such  a happy and romantic atmosphere.

The Magical Power of Fresh Floral Arrangement

We  have being enjoyed the nice sunny weather recently  in SoCal. With approaching the end of Feb, it is the  time to plan  refreshing home for  Spring.  One of the magical way to fresh up home is to simply bring in fresh flowers and plants.

 

 

We recently visited Blackman Cruz.  When we stepped into  the showroom,  a large fresh flower arrangement over a hand-made stone vase greeted us and make us so happy.

We love how the beautiful delicate flowers play with a antique console, sculpture and vase by the entrance.
IMG_2282
In the showroom, there were a row of  floral arrangements in the the newly designed resin vases.
IMG_2277
We love how the artist arranged the flowers in such a fresh and relaxing way.

On the second floor, a fresh floral arrangement in a hand-made Mexico ceramic vase atop of an antique console lights up the dark  corridor.
IMG_2286
The colors on the flowers make you feel so cheerful.

 

IMG_2290
Interestingly, with the presence of the fresh flowers, we started to pay attention to the craftsmanship of these antique case-goods.

Weekend Vibes

We love to stroll around the Art District and DTLA over the weekends just to explore the  emerging things on art and design.

One of the fun things to do is to walk along the long long  exhibition hall filled with nature light.

From Cheerful Table-settings at Golden Globe 2020 to Our Everyday Eating Experiences

we know that  a beautiful tabletop always makes any event so sweet, memorable and vibrant,  not even mentioning  prestigious academy events like Golden Globe.  The design of the tabletop at 77th Golden Globe is chic, modern with a touch of signature Hollywood glamor—roses and Champaign.

The all-white dinner set choice, for sure, keeps all of the possible chaoes and fusses  into the minimum while providing calming and clean backdrop for the beautifully arranged two-tone rose centerpieces, also, I believe, the smiles of the star guests.

Celebrity florist Mark’s Garden is behind the floral designs for this year’s show, and the California-based business flew in more than 10,000 blooms from Ecuador and Italy for the ceremony. The flowers, which have vibrant orange and yellow hues, add a pop of color to the dozens of tables inside the ballroom.

Celebrate Color of Orange —4 Spiced Pumpkin Interiors from Schumacher’s Archive

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.

_RESLICED_RecycleSpice02_02
The cream walls and ceiling balance off the saturate orange color on the floor. Even through  there is a drama, overrall,  it is still a pretty calming space thanks to large areas of cream colors and symmetrical design.
1019RecycleSpicey_05
I feel this is a perfect place for me to have a warm fall  afternoon nap with soft sunlights. The chinoiserie wallpaper on the walls adds touch of elegance.1019RecycleSpicey_13

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.

1019RecycleSpicey_09
Well, we all need a moment to just loose up. This orang-color enveloped space is cheerful yet relaxing with Bohemia vibes.
