Happy Friday, guys!  After the first 5 days of staying-at-home quarantine, you may want to relax a little and experience something exotic without leaving your comfort home.  Today, we are continuing our global home tour series. Today is part  II. You can click here to read part I.

Today, we will take you to tour Colombian fashion designer Johanna Ortiz’s Cartagena vocation home.

Cartagena is a port city on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. By the sea is the walled Old Town, founded in the 16th century, with squares, cobblestone streets and colorful colonial buildings. With a tropical climate, the city is also a popular beach destination. Reachable by boat are Isla de Barú, with white-sand beaches and palm trees, and the Islas del Rosario, known for their coral reefs.

You can see from the photos above, Cartegena is a vibrant town with a breathtaking view of Caribbean Sea and a lot of indigenous culture and crafts. It must be a lot of fun just strolling around here.

So here is the fashion designer– Johanna Ortiz standing at her front door  of her vocation home which she comes to visit 7 times a year. The black-and-white color scheme of an ancient Chinese wood door and exterior walls sets the tone for a quiet understated resort.

Then comes a hallway where hand-made Mexican concrete flooring repeats the color scheme of black-and-white on the exteriors. Yet, a colonial antique wood table and wood-framed mirror together with local vintage pieces on the table add layers of warmth. A French crystal chandelier is romantic and sophisticated.

Here is her salon. We love a super long comfy modern sofa  paired with a Chinese Ming dark wood coffee table. And a tiger print throw rug  on the floor adds a modern flair to this space.

In her bedroom daybed area, comes her play on textiles—floral and geometric prints mingle happily here. The blue-and-white color scheme is peaceful, relaxing and pleasing to the eye.

The red chinosoriee   on  plush pillows, bed coverlet and chaise lounge chair are warm and inviting.

Here is our favorite space of the home–terrace under a vaulted brick ceiling. We could just sit here for a whole day.  The mix of fine crystal glasses, vintage pieces and local crafts on a large Spanish table are just so striking.

Ortiz’s love of fashion actually stems from her passion for interiors,which is evident in both her clothing creations—she is known for her pattern choices and often sources fabrics from vintage textiles—and her Cartagena vacation home of 13 years.  She captures the sultry, sophisticated South American spirit.Check out her lipstick collection with Aerin Lauder and her fashion dresses(click each image for product details):

18 Ideas for Chic Blue-and-White Spring Table Settings

Time just flies. Now we are approaching the spring season.  From Easter to Mother’s Day and all of the warm weekends in between, the dining table will definitely get a workout over the next few months.  Either refreshing your table with fine china, crisp linens, fresh-cut flowers and greenery, we summarize 11 ideas here for chic tables-capes and hope one of them will speak to your hosting .

We love classic blue and white color palette and it is also the color palette for year around. Pairing with spring fresh-cut flowers, the blue-and-white theme  set a pleasant and light mood for a spring celebration. The classic blue-and-white chinoiserie  always adds a touch of sophistication and elegance. With this year’s Pantone Color of the year 2020—-Classic Blue, we find more interesting designs on fine china and wine glasses in the shades of blue.

An Elegant Powder Room in Blue-and-White

Here is the recent powder room we did for the Orange County Hill house. Different from super contemporary entry, we create more traditional vibes for this powder room to give that warmth and inviting feel. The crisp contrast between blue and white and touch of brass on the hardwares  make the space so elegant, light and airy with a right dose of glamour.

Tuesday House Tour— Fashion Designer, Ralph Lauren’s Home and Office

It’s Tuesday house tour time.  We will take a look  inside designer Ralph Lauren’s  Bedford, New York house, Colorado ranch, and Manhattan office.  Lauren is the first fashion designer to offer a comprehensive home-furnishings line, which he crafts around themed lifestyle collections.

 

ralph-lauren-homes-23.jpg

ralph-lauren-homes-3.jpg
At Lauren’s residence in Bedford, New York, a 19th-century Dutch chandelier presides over the entrance hall.  Love the airy and sophisticated vibes at the entry.
ralph-lauren-homes-11.jpg
In the living room, matching 19th-century Louis XV–style wing chairs flank an 18th-century Chinese carved low table; pillows made from antique textiles accent the sofa, and the throw in the foreground is a 19th-century Kashmiri paisley.   The space is full collection of  art, hand-crafted objects, fine home goods…
ralph-lauren-homes-5.jpg
Ralph Lauren Home fabrics cover the sofa and pillows in the poolhouse, which features 16th-century Belgian pine ceiling beams and a 17th-century French limestone mantel; the lamps are made from 18th-century Chinese vessels.  I love the open and tranquil feel in this room.  And of course, blue-and-whites.
ralph-lauren-homes-2.jpg
The breakfast room’s tableware is by Ralph Lauren Home, as are the fabrics used for the tablecloth and the cushions on the 19th-century English armchairs; the painting is 17th-century Dutch.  This is one of my rooms.  I always have a thing with layered table-cloth—it’s elegant, relaxing and fun.
ralph-lauren-homes-6.jpg
A vintage French bistro mirror hangs above the antique pedestal sink in the poolhouse bath.  Love this vintage mirror with a clean–line modern flair.
ralph-lauren-homes-4.jpg
A circa-1774 portrait by Pompeo Girolamo Batoni is displayed between the library’s French doors, which are curtained with a Ralph Lauren Home velvet; the two-arm Argand lamp is 19th century, and the pillows are made of antique fabrics.  This is truly Lauren’s signature style—dark and rich color palettes, brass elements, wood panelings, checkered fabric…

Long-Weekend Vibes

Wouldn’t be nice we have this long weekend holiday and it’s in May.  It’s such a beautiful season to pamper ourselves with all of Spring beauties. My favorite are always about blue-and-whites, greenery, pink blooms, gardens, sunshine, fresh air… How about you?  How are you going to celebrate MemorialLong-weekend?

 

Refined Asian Style Interiors

A of touch of oriental elements in the interiors can always elevate your home decor.  From its colors, textures, forms to the craftsmanships, Asian style is charming, sophisticated and timeless.

Lavender is Ladylike


Wouldn’t you agree with me that lavender is ladylike ?  It’s refreshing, chic and elegant.  It’s a symbol of spring garden.  When it reaches middle of February we are really looking forward to spring.  Lavender , blush, pale blue with the pops of bright yellow and  pink truly make this living room a heaven.  Mix-and-match of chinoiserie, stripes and bold exquisite geometric pattern on the sofa trims make the room formal, sophisticated and whimsical.

Chinese New Year through the Looking Glass

One of the best things about Chinese New Year is that there is 7 days to celebrate.  And  today is the 3rd day.

 

One of the traditions about Chinese New year is to burn incenses to worship ancestors and pray for the best for the new year.  The experience is just absolutely beautiful.

 

For this year, we created a series of interiors featured with Chinese antique and Chinoiserie styles to celebrate the year of the rooster.  For this particular  dining set in the following video, the inspiration comes from the tradition that Chinese burn incenses to worship the kitchen god on the 3rd day of the Festival.  The set features with antique Huanghuali arm chairs, Ming dining table, pagoda chandelier chinoiserie wallpaper and Louis XVI gilded mirror.

 

 

Happy Monday and Happy Chinese New Year
