Hi, guys, we would like to let you know that this week is our Golden Globes Awards week. And we will talk a lot about the fashion, tabletop styling, set design from the Awards and pair them with our favorite looks-alike interiors. Today’s blog is series 3. If you haven’t read the first two blogs, you can click here for the tabletop tips from the Awards and click here for Billy Porter’s all-white inspired rooms
Ok, today, we are going to talk about Renée Zellweger’s stunning Baby Blue dress on the 77th Golden Globe. Obviously, she is not only one of the Best Actress but also one of the best dressed.
This is Zellweger’s fourth Golden Globe win. She won her first Golden Globe in 2001 for her rule in “Nurse Betty.” The next came in 2003 for “Chicago,” followed by 2004 for “Cold Mountain.”
The 47-year-old actress, whose portrayal of Judy Garland in Rupert Goold’s biopic, arrived at the 2020 Golden Globes in a strapless baby blue custom-made Armani Privé gown, featuring a thigh-high slit and crystal-embroidered piping. Zellweger pulled her blonde hair back in a loose updo and wore a soft pink lipstick. She accessorized with matching Jimmy Choo pumps and a gold cuff. Renée completed her outfit with a David Webb gold and diamond bracelet.
She does look stunning in that baby blue gown. So the look is sleek, modern, chic yet classic at the same time. Our take-aways to create Renee’s timeless modern classic look:
Minimalism yet elegant form
Yes, ice blue please,
A touch of glamor—her gold bracelet and crystal pipings on her blue gown
Have something loose( her loose hair style) to relax the overall look.
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.
Well, Beyonce’s gown really looks good with those bright orange and yellow roses.
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.
So, learning lesson here to set up a beautiful tabletop in a crowded and busy moment is with a simple table setting. Plus, it is the beginning of the year, you probably want to refresh your table with a minimal effort. White is the easiest color to style – its classic, calm and never goes out of fashion. That’s why every stylish table needs a crisp white tableware collection that’s highly versatile.

Hi, guys, just let you know if you feel a little bit sad that the holiday season is over, I have a good news for you that Chinese New Year is coming. Yes, Chinese New Year is on 25th of this month and this year is Year of the Rat and you have to celebrate it in a big way because the year of the rat always indicates a big fortune coming to you. So be ready to receive it.
Well, Do above these adorable rats put a big smile on your face? They are created by Shaun Teo Creations in Kuala Lumpur. I am a big fan of Shaun Teo Creations on Instagram. They craft all kinds of cute cakes for different festivals and events. I have been always got inspired by their work. I believe they are now opening pre-orders for those lovely Chinese New Year’s cookies. Just check them out on Instagram.
So, today , since I am truly inspired by the red color they use for their product, I going to talk about Color of Red in home decor.
Red, corresponding with fire, symbolizes good fortune and joy. Red is found everywhere during Chinese New Year and other holiday celebrations and family gatherings.
Here are some inspirations.
Red, specially lacquer red on walls makes rooms look sumptuous and elegant. And of course, you always can choose red as an accent color.
We have a tradition for every New Year’s Day. Yes, we will go to beach to enjoy some sunshine , to be close to the ocean to feel its abundance and greatness. Ocean has a magic power that always calm us and show us there are actually tremendous opportunities and hopes out there in the world. And the most important thing ocean teaches us is to be kind, generous and tolenrant from those who are different from you.
Malibu is a city west of Los Angeles, California. It’s known for its celebrity homes and beaches, including wide and sandy Zuma Beach. To the east is Malibu Lagoon State Beach, known as Surfrider Beach for its waves. Nearby is the Spanish Revival–style Adamson House decorated with historical California hand-made tiles. Malibu is such a lovely beach town in SoCal with pretty relaxing vibes. Our trip this time is to visit Nobu, relax at its breath-taking beach-view porch, take a walk on the pier and just stroll around the town.
Nobu, Malibu is Iron Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Japanese delicacies, plus California fare, in a modern, beachfront space. “Originally opening in the Malibu Country Mart in 1999 as the fourth Nobu location in the United States, Nobu Malibu moved to it’s current location in 2012. The views of the ocean from nearly every seat in the restaurant, as well as Malibu-specific specialty dishes in addition to all of the Nobu classics, make this a destination dining experience not to be missed.” We have been too Nobu restaurant and hotel in Las Vegas. I will say Nobu Malibu has more relaxing beach get-away vibes while the Las Vegas one gears more toward high-caliber clubbing experiences. Each restaurant has their specialities. But one dish we like from both locations is Black Cod Miso. You’ve got to order it if you have a chance to visit.
Known for its five-star cuisine and decadent Japanese-inspired interiors, you’re likely to spot a Kardashian at this California go-to. The LA-based sushi bar is such a celebrity staple, it’s even name-dropped in three Drake songs and a Kanye track. That said, the opening of their luxury hotel Nobu Ryokan Malibu is bound to attract a star-studded guest list. We didn’t get a chance to visit the hotel this time since it is guests-only(maybe next time). But I found an article from Elle Decor talking about this newly opened 5-star hotel.
Overlooking Carbon Beach along the Pacific Coast Highway, the lodge draws from the area’s laidback California style while boasting Nobu’s signature Japanese design.The building’s original structure was a 1950’s beach motel, which architects Studio PCH and Montalba Architects have dramatically transformed. Each guest room has its own unique interior design, all incorporating teak, bronze, and limestone to maintain a calming neutral color palette throughout.

As we all know it is not easy to start Monday in a cheerful mood. My strategy is to go in to dig in as much beautiful interiors as I can. And there is one home that is truly light up my mood—Elle Decor’s International Design Editor Cynthia Frank’s Manhattan Home—its truly Parisian get-away in New York—elegant,. feminine and super cozy. In the sea of middle-century modern , coastal and farm-house styles in Los Angeles, I immediately become obsessed with this sophisticated style. Let’s take a look together:
The Prussia Blue that set the elegant Parisian tone of the whole house:
DTLA has being experienced huge changes in the past several years from new apartment condos, office buildings, luxury hotels, to shopping venues, one-of-the-kind eat-in kitchens, cool restaurants to booming art scenes and designs. We are just literally amazed by the creative new things everyday by different artists.
For today’s design world, we cherish hand-made, craftsmanship, organic materials and their applications in a noble ways. It is always so amusing when seeing how a group of designers, engineers, fabricators and artists work together to create an amazing project or piece of art.
We were recently invited to a glassworks demo by Neptune Glassworks All of the glass materials they use are from labs and recyclable. We were just pretty blown away by how they put up such a stylish party in a totally industrial warehouse and offered such an intricate demo. Their creation of piece of sculpture is just more than amazing.
It might be a little bit late to post our Holiday ShowHouse 2018–2019. But come on, it’s still Jan of 2019 and Chinese New year is coming. So it’s time to be festive and it’s time to celebrate.
The inspiration of our Holiday ShowHouse 2018—2019 is inspired by Pantone Color of the Year 2019–Live Coral—fashionable, bold, youthful, energetic and innovative. After several years of muted color palettes, millennium pink and grey, we feel it is time to break through to celebrate holidays with something fresh. Therefore, we are able to stay prospective for the future. Meanwhiles, Holidays are truly about traditions. We mix and match traditions with modern, Live Coral with vintage pink, emerald green with hot pink, camel with purple, Chinoiserie accessories with minimalism furniture, geometric patterns with classic forms and fine crystals with organic ceramic. The end result of this year’s holiday show house decoration is fun, edgy, playful yet still elegant and sort of traditional. Enjoy!
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?
Hope you celebrated green and had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day yesterday. We always love St. Patrick’s day not because it’s fun and cool, also because it is usually the time for us to kick off the season of Spring entertaining. Specially after the several times of raining showers, everything in our garden just starts blooming. So, of course, inspired by the warm and clear sunshine and beautiful blooms in our garden, we decided to have a causal in-home celebration by cooking comfy Irish beef stew and put up an organic spring-theme tabletop to enjoy. You may want to do the same thing too, but may be just intimated by the complicated task and think maybe the other time. Well, life is about celebrating every moment. We are celebrating by doing and engaging as much as we can. Therefore, it is much more fun for memories and does excise your creative muscles a lot. But there are some simple ways to make in-home entertaining much less a daunted task. Here are 7 tips we would love to share to make spring entertaining fun, simps and stylish.
Just go to the outdoor and go to your backyard garden. You will be inspired by nature a lot and make you desire to bring nature to home. Since our garden is blooming, we just got everything from the garden—grass, roses, wild flowers, branches, herbs…
2. Please don’t wrap up your fine china and put them away at somewhere you even cannot find. Yes, please display your chinaware at the place you can easily see. Therefore, you always want to use them.
3. Plan,plan,plan. Write down the theme and food you would like to serve. For St. Patrick’s day table top, we wanted to celebrate the season of spring, so we had a lot of green-leaf veggies and in-season colorful root veggies. The next is to prepare the menu. For ours menu is mainly Irish beef stew with some green veggie cakes and green-leaf salad. We actually cooked the beef stew a night before in a slower cooker.
4. Well, just sit back and enjoy.
5. Take time to take the photos for what you just do and you will be inspired to host next party.
