Spring Blooms

We visited a little botanic garden yesterday. At a first look, it seems that there is nothing happening. But when we turned around and took a close look, then magical just happened. We saw the beautiful spring flowers with the most amazing color and shape are quietly blooming in the soft late afternoon spring sunshine. Then we found more and more amazing spring blooms almost on every single branch. We were puzzled that why we didn’t see them at all at the very beginning. Maybe we have to quiet our mind first and then able to see the beautiful things that we can’t see when we are in a hurry or when we feel anxious. This philosophy also applies when we design our home. When there are too many options and we just don’t know which one to choose, maybe it is the time for us to step back and take a deep breath, just ask ourselves a simple question: which one pleases my mind?

Here are some of the photos we took from yesterday’s visit. Please enjoy!

Home Trends 2021—Shades of Brown

With 2020 winding down in front of eyes, we would love to share some of our insights on home trends in the year of 2021. After all, it is always exciting to look forward to a brighter future and home has grown so much closer to us than ever before when we are experiercing a long, long pandemic crisis. For most of us , home is only the sanctuary at this time that makes us feel relaxing and safe. As home will continue to be our refugee in the year of 2021, there is no resaon that we don’t want to make it better. One of the trends we have being seen is that different shades of brown are coming back strongly from brown wall paint, brown furniturer, brown flooring to brown home decor accessories. Basically any earth tone such as warm taupes, beiges, sands is surging in popularity. The trend may be an evolution from popular whites and grays of recent years since brown as an accent color works well to bring warmth to a palette heavy with those colors. And brown can also make us feel familiar and grounded at this uncertain time.

Sunday–Garden Fresh

We usually have a back-to-back workout schedule over the weekend –long distance hiking and running. So it is pretty tiring at the end of the day. And recover is the key for us to get back to the weekly track. We usually do carbs loading over the weekends and find it is really help accelerate the recovery. One of our favorite things to do after the hiking and running is to just chill out in our backyard by the fireside and enjoy some garden fresh–some we got from the farmer’s market and some we picked up from our backyard. We feel those rich autumn colors really put us in a festive mood.
