9 Beautifully Landscaped Home Garden

Probably at this strange time,  the best getaway for some of us is a beautifully landscaped home garden.  I came across some stunning home gardens when I browsed internet today  and would love to share 9 of them that we fall in love with.

We love to see how lemon trees, olive trees, agave, other greenery  and flowers  add texture and color in these gardens.

Happy Earth Day

2020 is marked 50th year of anniversary of Earth Day.  This is a day that we demonstrate support for environmental protection.

From beautiful cherry blossoms, breath-taking mountain views to dreamy gardens and houses, we all know that what touch our heart deeply are the gifts and blessings from Mother Nature.

We came across  some amazing Earth day posts in our Ins feed this morning and would love to share you guys here on our blog.

Spring Moments in the Backyard

 

When I am writing this blog, I am playing   @dnice IG live in the background. I truly don’t know what’s  American quarantine’s life like  without @dice Club Quarantine. I am grateful that he makes everyone feel upbeat, connected and belonging. Now it is one of our rituals to dress up for @dnice IG live  parties on Saturdays.

 

Well, spring 2020 is quite different.  We used to go to different design shows, natural reserves, concerts, galleries, public gardens, flower shows… And this year, we spent most of time in our backyard. Here are some of  my spring moments in my backyard.

Easter is a time for bunnies,  eggs,  blossoms, color, celebration and a chance to refresh and welcome spring.   This year, Easter falls on Sunday, April 12. And you still have time to  plan the pieces to display for your Easter setting and tables-cape.

easter-1easter-2

From bunny themed dinnerware, flatware, to adorable treats, cake-stands,  glass figurines, pastels, bight colors, and luxurious fabric, today we are going to share 6 ideas to bright up your Monday.

  1. Pastels—the mood is soft, tranquil and inviting.

Because Easter occurs in spring, the colors of flowers and flowering tree blossoms are often in the range considered “pastel”. Light blues, turquoise, yellow, green, pink, white, and lavender are all examples of such colors. Also, light orange or coral colors and light shades of turquoise are pastel Easter colors.

2. Display of bunny figurine to  create a touch of festivity.

3. Easter egg ornaments—old-wold or chic, modern and ultra-sophisticated bring us a lot of fun to play with.

Luna New Year Series 2—Behind-the-Scene Story for Our 2020 CLNY Tabletop

Every year we will design Chinese New Year tabletop theme. For lunar  New Year 2020, the year of the metal rat, we features the following elements:

  1. Color Palette—embrace Pantone Color of the Year 2020—Classic Blue with touch of traditional Chinese red and pastel pink to create a modern, intimate, chic and festive decor vibe. The large area of white paint in this eat-in space balance off Classic Blue and light up the whole area.  In this color palette, we have influences from Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2020–First Light, DunEdwards Color of the Year 2020 –Mint Fresh and PPT color of the Year 2020—China Porcelain.

A banquette seating is trendy in any eat-in space, specially the corner area —it looks pretty neat, stylish and offer extra seats and storage for get-togethers.  The plush cushions, upholstered fabric and throw pillows together elevate the every-day eat-in spaces and bring in elegance.
