15 Chic Living Rooms with a Touch of Red

Our color of in July is red. We have being talked about it for a while. Color of red is cheerful, warm, fashion-forward. At the same time, it can be romantic, classic and moody. Today we are going to share 15 living rooms. with a touch of red.

Iconic Lip Sofa

When we talk about color of red at home, the first thing that comes out of mind is probably Dali’s iconic lip sofa. Around 1935, Spanish artist Salvador Dalí saw something special in the face of movie star Mae West: an apartment. In a watercolor, he turned her blonde curls into portières, her eyes into paintings, her nose into a fireplace, and her lips into a divan. The last was a furnishing so provocative that British arts patron Edward James requested a three-dimensional version. The rest is the history.

The lip sofa is just such a sculptural piece that make a focal point at any space.

We have just designed a series of rooms with different themes to celebrate our sanctuary and refugee that nurture and calm us at this current pandemic crisis.

Celebrate Color of Red at Home

We celebrate patriotic colors of blue, red and white at home this week. We talked about blue yesterday. If you haven’t read it, you can click here to learn more . So, today we are going to talk about color of red at home. Red is one of our favorite colors—it can be romantic, feminine, warm, energetic, cheerful, happy, fashion-forward. When used in kitchens and dining rooms, color of red can sure enhance our asperities. Red has the longest wavelength of any color. It’s the first color babies can see and it’s the very first color to vanish as the sun sets.

Alessandra Branca is one of our favorite designers who master using color of red in their work. We love her classical and whimsical way to decorate her clients’ home with color of red. Read on to take some inspiration from her gorgeous projects.

  1. Red textured wall-covering often gives a room a sumptuous and sophisticated classical vibe.

House Tour—-A Fashionable Home at Greenwich Village

Our recent blogs have featured homes with a light and airy vibe. Today, we decide to go to a different style—a home with a fashionable flair by using  colors. Why not? Color is a therapy that heal us and make us feel good.  We have included color in one of principles of wellness at home .  Here are the highlights of our favorite spaces.

Entry

edc-web-house-tour-fuller03-1586874949

From the entry, you probably won’t tell this is going be a colorful home.  Instead a large silver artwork by Anselm Reyle and a geometric black console and dark brown round mirror make a statement by  forms and  rather keep the color palette simple and neutral. We can feel a very masculine energy here.

Library

edc-web-house-tour-fuller02-1586874955

The neutral palette continues in the living room. But here, two of white curved sofa create a very inviting, cozy and elegant atmosphere here. We feel the feminine energy here. We love how chic and stylish side tables and ottoman with jewel-tone colors just casually sit around those two of the curved white sofa . They are just like beautiful and adorable accessories for this home.

 

Library

edc-web-house-tour-fuller01-1586874950

Now color starts to play in this family library. The blue color here is exciting yet very calming too. The colors on walls  and furniture pull out the color palette from an abstract artwork atop the fireplace to grantee a harmonious and cohesive feel even though bold colors are applied in this space.

 

Reading Area

edc-web-house-tour-fuller06-1586874949

We love this warm pink on two of  these reading settees.

 

Bar

edc-web-house-tour-fuller09-1586874922

A black bar cabinet and a black vase on top of is understate yet stylish and also well uses the niche space  here.

 

Dining Area

edc-web-house-tour-fuller04-1586874955

This blue wall by the dining area is opposite the above blue wall. So the key to use a bold color  still keeping a balanced and harmonious feel is to repeat the color in a symmetric way.  Those hanging little pendants above the dining table are just like jewels for this home. The warm brown on the velvet dining chairs is inviting and nicely contrasts with and well balances off the blue  on the walls here.

This swing bed is a great idea when you have a limited space but still want to have some fun.

Peek Inside Diana von Furstenburg’s Manhattan Home

Diana von Furstenburg is a powerful woman not only in fashion industry but also an active philanthropist.  She  sits on the board of Vital Voices, an organization that empowers emerging women leaders and social entrepreneurs, and also serves as a Director of The Diller – von Furstenberg Family Foundation, through which  the designer has donated to several important causes. Yesterday, in  honor of  International Women’s Day, she teamed up with Amazon to launch In Charge store  featuring  inspirational women-owned small businesses.   You can click here to check out the details.

She described her design style for her fashion in 1985  “[There are] three essential F’s in designing for women…flattering, feminine, and, above all, functional.”  And she loves life. So, we couldn’t help but wander what her homes look like.  Luckily, Artuitect Digest visited her Manhattan home in 2017.  So let’s take a look at designer’s Manhattan home together.

The living room showcases her intuitive take for mixing colors and patterns, elements that have defined her fashion style and brand.  We love how she played a low-profile box mustard sofa with her own over-sized black-and-white portrait, chic black-and-white animal print pillows and various shapes of mid-century modern wood furniture at the white wall backdrop. The portrait is by Zhang Huan; Von Furstenberg created the leopard-spot carpeting for the Rug Company. The armchair is by Michael Graves.  Photo Credits: Architectural Digest

A high style and playful home filled with well-collected art—above a vintage Salvador Dalí sofa is a Duong self-portrait; the sconces are by André Dubreuil, and the tables are by Alexandra von Furstenberg, Diane von Furstenberg’s daughter. we love this pink-on-pink color scheme. It is both flattering and feminine. A large-scaled leopard print rug anchors the space.

Functional is key— Surrounded by Franz West chairs, the Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann table in Von Furstenberg’s office/living area often does double duty as a desk and dining table.

5 Ways to Transform your Home with Beautiful Rugs

The weather drops so low in LA today. And this is just reminding us that winter is still here. Well, you might already take away all of your holiday decor that made your home cozy and warm. There is one magical item that you really should still keep it around. Yes, rug, please. As matter of the fact, you should keep several of rugs in your home–runner for your kitchen and hallway, a large area statement area rug for your living room, a faux fur rug for your relaxing corner and rug-on-rug-on-rug style to bring in  pattern, color and  some casual bohemian vibes.  In the following, we will talk about how different style of rugs can transform and elevate your home in a second.

  1. A touch of coziness.corner

For this newly designed project we just did recently, we throw a cream faux fur rug under a clean-lined modernized classical gilded chair to make the corner of this all-white room warm, cozy, inviting and romantic.

img_2688-1

For the study room project we did several years ago, we also had this faux fur rug by the window seat to create that a cozy and relaxing zone in the study.

2. A wow factor statement.

imgk7512

For this entry we did several years ago in Walnut, we used an emerald green silky rug with geometric lines to eco the circle design at the edge of the entry table.

housetour-entry

This is the entry for one of our holiday show-houses a couple of year ago. We love this large floral pattern rug at the entry to wow the guest.

3. To keep cohesive through rooms and holistic decor.

livingroomimg_2370-1

We did this modern house project last year. We actually keep the client’s Moroccan style rug and start to curate the whole house decor based on the color palette on the rug.

4. Add a  touch of whimsical and interest by stacking different rugs together casually.

modernclassicdiningroom15-1-1

For this new project we just did, we actually stack two rugs together to have that extra coziness.

We are really obsessed with layering different rugs together to create visual interest.

Lee Radziwill’s Chic Paris’s Pied-à-terre

Couple of days ago, i wrote about Lee Radzwill’s (March 3rd 1933–Feb. 15th 2019)New York apartment.   You can click here to read the story.    Lee Radzwill is a former European princess and actress, socialite, interior decorator, sister of the late Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (1994).  She  owned properties in New York, London and Paris.  Each home really reflects her personalities as a style icon.  Today, I am going to show you her Paris pied-à-terre, her love at first sight.   Overlooking  Avenue Montaigne with a view of the Eiffel Tower, the home was originally decorated by Christian Liaigre,  it is perhaps one of the most iconic Parisian abodes of the 20th century.  Her Paris home was featured three times on magazines, Vogue in 2003,  ELLE Decor in 2009 and Times in 2013 and it had being evolved each time.

CR32550197213_93c49cec0d_o
Elle Decor, 2009

We can see the style in her Paris apartment is very different from her New York home. As herself said of her New York apartment :” but it’s extremely full. So it’s wonderful to have the contrast [in Paris] of having it totally Zen, totally peaceful. In what other city do you find doves outside your window…”   All of the furniture in her Paris home is clean-lined, yet there are gilded antique mirrors, gilded coffee tables, floral upholstery ,tons of artworks and books and a lot of detailed soft touches.  Her interiors are just like the way she dressed—modern , elegant and chic, yes American chic.

Obviously, pink is her favorite color.  With a large amount of creams and whites in the back ground,  mixed patterns of stripes, chinoiserie played off with pink on the sofa..  It is just such an elegant and peaceful place you want to wind down.
Lee-Radziwill’s-Paris-Apartment
Again, pink, stripe pattern, plant artworks, florals, neutrals for the  background and the sunshines… I would love to just sit here for the whole day watching doves flying by.
