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:
Often when my clients did their renovation, one of the challenges they face and would like to solve is to have more storages aesthetically. After doing so many projects, I find out that vertical walls are actually pretty under-estimated spaces that could leverage and provide the solutions for the most make-over cases. Here are 7 ideas for wall display and storage that are not only functional but elevate the rooms as well. let’s take a look.

Hi, guys, Happy Saturday! As usual, I love to work in my garden a little bit earlier in the morning just to refresh my mind and feel good. My backyard garden looks so green and lush now.
So, today, I would like to share the recent makeover I just did for my dining room– new blush draperies, re-upholstered blue velvet French dining chairs, some fresh tabletops, please have a sneak peek:
Decorating is usually the final touch to make the room look finished with personality. In today’s blog, I would like to share one of our recent projects—a San Gabriel Modern House—Entry Before and After.
The client remolded her house not long ago—painted the whole house, changed the floor and re-did the kitchen. However somehow, the client felt that she might need a professional interior designer help her put everything together and finish the house. Here are several steps we did to create that chic, modern yet inviting space.
Entry Before and After
The client used to have a much smaller chest with a burst mirror hanging above it at her entry as it showed in the following first photo. What we did is to replace that short and bulky chest with a long yet sleek marble-top console to make the whole vignette look modern and more proportional. Also, we used classic black houndstooth wallpaper to elevate the space. The muted multi-color artwork and jewel-toned glass vases are highlights for the vignette adding touch of elegance and youthfulness to the entry. The greenery underneath the console makes the space alive.
Last but not least is the proper lighting for the whole entry vignette since there is not that much natural light in this area. We used adjustable LED ceiling light fixture with warm light to light up the entry.
We also replaced the original cabinets with a bi-folding door and simple shelving system.
Underneath the stair and by the side of entry, we installed a pull-out rack, a bench and an artwork together to form a casual, relaxing yet functional vignette set.

DTLA has being gone through the major transformation within last several years. Every time, we are here, we always can see something new and feel something new. So it is pretty exciting experience to explore new DTLA for food, cafe, architectures, boutique hotels, museums, etc. And often the landscape of the mix -and- max of the new with historical buildings make the city so charming.
We were recently invited to a preview party of new property in China Town which is really close to city hall. The property is multi-purpose combining with retails and residential. I am pretty amazed by how they use the color, patterns and mid-century furniture they choose.
It keeps raining, raining and raining in Los Angeles. Wouldn’t be nice to just chill out in this pretty and cozy bedroom featured with pastel color palette, poster bed, toile wallpaper, vintage channel-back love seat, mid-century chandelier, and pink-shaded table lamps, etc…?
Today’s LA weather is very nice–warm sunshine and a little bit of breeze. With Christmas around corner, I think it will be a perfect time to set up an outdoor table top and have a little bit high tea on this beautiful weekend sunny afternoon in Dec. Yes, we are just lucky enough to still be able to host a backyard outdoor party in Dec. My inspiration for today’s setup came from the designer floral fabric I got a year ago. I really like the elegant pattern of the fabric and always think how I should use this fabric for my next decor project. It looks like today is a day. The fabric will be perfect to cover my little French table for today’s outdoor party setup. It’s British, whimsical, floral and really mimics the garden. So, here we go:
Chinossorie, English china and some fresh casual floral arrangements with a lush greenery backdrop. Love the sunny day!
Here are 5 ways to host your backyard outdoor high tea party:
Just do it.
Start small—a small table, a fine table cloth will help you start the project.
Always keep your eye on antique tea cups—they are the Queen for your party.
