Living Room Before-and-After–3 Ways to Elevate Your Living Room in a Second

 

Hi, guys, hope you are having a big Labor Day weekend plan, for example, doing a quick make-over for your home and ready to go strong in the rest of 2019. If so, I am going to share 3 ways to do a quick make-over for your living room.

 

  1. Declutter as much as you can. By doing so, your mind is kind of going through cleansing too. Guarantee you will feel super refreshing after the task.
  2. Get some new decor pillows with new colors and patterns.  If you would like to know which color is in, please click here
  3. Have fresh garden-cut flowers on your coffee table. And if you need to know how to style a coffee table, please click here

Check out the recent makeover we just did for a modern living room in San Gabriel valley.

Here is before-and-after. I am sure you have no questions to chill out in the After. We got inspiration from client’s rug and pull out the color scheme out of it—peach, blush, teal, blue and cream.

We like to use a brass tall vase to anchor the space which also  adds a touch of luxury to the laid-back easy-breezy modern space.

3 Colors that are Trendy Now

It’s almost the end of August.  I feel I just cannot wait to see all of  the new color palettes in fall. Here are 3 colors that I start to see them everywhere and they may dominate the this coming fall season.

  1. Chili Pepper Red— a little bit red on accessories like purses, boots, socks, …etc pairing with warm neutrals  is fresh, exciting yet classic and ladylike.4f1fc827becf8fc62570522a43f1ef900cec1b2d68bce193054bc7b155734d0d

2.Cinnemon:

Cinnamon is a warm, medium shade of brown.

Cinnamon is darker than shades like tan and beige but lighter than chocolate or true brown. Its warm undertones mean the hue can sometimes look red or orange-tinged. Cinnamon color looks fashionable, youthful and sophisticated when pared with checkered patterns and animal prints.

If you’re looking for subtler colors to try this season, then sumptuous cream and beige tones are your perfect choice. The expensive-looking neutral shades are gorgeous when layered in different fabrics.

Sunday Mood-board—Bold color and Pattern

Good morning! How’s your Sunday going so far? I woke up earlier and watered my garden first. I feel it is such a bless for me to enjoy my garden in the morning.  I love to observe how morning sun light shines through the greeneries with a little cute dew drops. It is such a romantic moment for me. What’s your Sunday mood? what color are you in mood for today?

We visited an art installation yesterday and it is about colorful rolling-hill landscape in Ireland. I’ve never been to Ireland and I guess people there must be very happy. You know that is true since we all have a good time on St. Patric’s Day. so here is my sunday color block mood-board. Enjoy!

The Colorful Urban Landscape of DTLA

 

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.

Here is the pretty cool location.  You can see the city hall is right in the middle. Photo by Robert Ke

The property has several buildings featured cheerful bright color blocks. 

 

LAIMG_0977.jpg
When you enter the 4th floor lobby, you see this kitchen first. First of all, I really like the color palette they chose here–cool high-glossy navy blue on the cabinetry with warm textured brown copper tiles on the wall and floor. The white quarts countertop finishes the whole vignette look with a touch of fresh modern crispness. Second of all, I quite like how they design the shelving box around the fridge—it’s kind of not that serious but pretty stylish and thoughtful  vibe.  Yes, a good work flow, plenty of countertops and relax vibes often create a dream place to host a big social party.
LAIMG_0983.jpg
Here is a huge industrial chandelier at one of the entries. One of the cool features for this property is how they mix and match different styles of lighting fixtures which makes ceilings and vertical spaces so interesting.  Different layers of lighting design make your eyes always look up and move around and find that unique object.

These playful pendants hanging over the large table in the lobby contrasts with the masculine chandelier by the entry we were just talking about above.

Selfie Sunday—Color of Red

One of my favorite things to do over the summer weekends is scrolling around little  beach towns in the neighborhood.  I couldn’t think where I can go to get  some fresh cool beach breeze , explore unexpected vintage founds and enjoy my different colors of macarons.  Often, the color palettes on the hight streets of  these little towns are so fascinated that they put me in such a relaxing mood.  I start to slow down and really take time to absorb and observe my surroundings.  So, today I am going to feature color of red.  Color of red  refers to  passion, happiness , positive vibes, high fashion, romance. When pairing with pale blue, pink , black and blush, it creates different moods.

Weekend Vibes

 

“Less Talk, More Ice Cream”, what about talks over ice cream?

I love just scrolling  around the neighborhoods of  Los Angeles to experience diversified cultures, find new cool shops with quirky interiors, or simply having my sweet-treats and batheing in the sunshines.  What about you? How do you spend your weekends?

Maybe because summer is here and I immediately fell in love with this color. I feel it is so ease on eyes and have a depth.

Hand-selected by PPG’s global color experts, the PPG paint brand’s 2020 Color of the Year, Chinese Porcelain (PPG1160-6) is a blend of cobalt and moody, ink blue that imparts calmness and restful sleep while also offering the spirit of hopefulness – a commodity in a restless world.”
