Maximalism in 2018

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.

Spring Fresh Makeover

The weather has been really nice lately.  The roses in my backyard garden start to bloom.  And there was Valentine’s Day.  Therefore, I decided to do some spring make over a week ago.  The color palette I used here is magenta, pink,  lavender, gold and neutrals.  Here are some vignettes I love to share here:

Playing different shades of pink. Love the pale pink table cloth which makes everything look so soft and subtle.  Gold truly adds a touch of sophistication and class to any space.

Beautiful blooms from my backyard. I mixed purple and hot pink together.  It’s fashionable, chic and cheerful.

It’s right middle of the week. I am looking for something that can cheer me up.  Then I saw this design we did recently. Something in this photo makes me feel soft.  Maybe it’s a group of pastel-colored pillows on the banquette. Here are 5 ways to create formal, elegant yet relaxing dining room.

  1. Have a neutral color palette with pop of pastel on the ceiling.
  2. Install ceiling-to-the-floor drapery.
  3. Mix formal with cozy.  For example, we mix very formal mahogany dining table with this lay-back banquette.
  4. Modern flower arrangement and candles light up this traditional room.
  5. Modern chandelier also adds a touch of freshness to this dining room

It’s right middle of the week.  You probably feel there is still a long way to go and feel pretty drained already.  However,” Life is in the living, in the tissue of every day and hour.” We have to embrace every moment.  Office is where we spend most of our time.  Let’s make it beautiful.  Therefore, we are able to enjoy every moment of being there.  Here are 4 tips to create a work space that you will madly fall in love with.

  1. Make the ceiling unique just as what we did in this office project:  it is a pink ceiling!  How fun!
  2. Have a lot of natural lights and good lighting design. Good lighting  will put you in the right mood and help you stay focused.
  3. Install  sleek drapery panels to give the space a more upscale look to keep up with your upbeat spirit.
  4. Always keep your desk uncluttered after you call it a day. That way,   you will feel refreshed when you start very next day.
  5. Having fresh flowers simply make you feel happy.
