Dinner will be served. Happy Friday. It would be such a dream to gather at this table with family and friends over the weekend or just enjoy a fancier yet relaxing dining at home over the weekday. The dining table is super glam and modern while the blush linen upholstered dining chairs bring in a casual elegance. We often use symmitrical design for the dining room to create a formal and tailored feel. The large-scale baby-blue vases and tall table lamps are proprotional to this high-ceiling dining room. The vintage artwork group personizes this dining room.

The wood furniture, wick wall decor and chinoiserie touch on pillows and vases magically transform a rather polished and glamorous living room to a home getaway with a casual and relaxing vibe. This summer, we might not be able to travel the world, but we can create a resort decor at home and bring things that are natural and exotic to please our heart.

It is always a fun to create a home style that reflects who we are as a person. So we can be best ourselves by living here. To have a timeless style is to stay true to ourselves. So take time to sought out the style and pick the objects that we are in love with.
This living room we designed here is chic, glamorous and ladylike. It is for someone who appreciates art and beautiful things, who has a distinguished taste and loves the details. A touch of red on the channeled sofa, the floral print skirted chair add dose of romance.
Home in West Coast is all about light, airy and coziness. A pristine loft apartment with soaring ceilings and monumental windows in a historic 19th-century building in NYC was just transformed into a cozy West -Coast-like home. Here are the highlights of our favorites.
The loft is full of natural light. So the earthy elements such as wood panelings were introduced to anchor this light-filled space. We love this mixed-media piece by Thea Djordjadze over the console. A stump stool is just adorable. The take-away design lesson here is to have the master artwork and unique furnishings in the entry to create that wow factor while using earthy elements to delivery an inviting and understated feel.
The blog talked about how Anthony Baratta, Williamsburg Foundation’s first ever residential designer uses Benjamin Moore’s Williamsburg® Paint Color Collection to transfer this living museum as his home.

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.
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.
