Kate Middleton Approved Styles I

Have you ever had the experience that you feel kind of blue on certain day and suddenly you see Kate’s images on Internet and you feel the whole world is actually filled with sunshines and life is beautiful. Yes, her signature smile always melts our hearts, doesn’t it ? What’s more, we love her styles and her way to dress up in the public—chic, elegant, feminine, tailored  yet approachable.

Let’s take a look at some of her style essentials:

  1. No matter what we wear and how we feel, we always need to put on a smile on our faces. You probably agree with me that everybody looks beautiful with a smiling face.

The beautiful smile that melts our hearts.

2. Just like Anna Wintour, she often wears elegant floral dresses too. And you can read Anna Wintour’s styles  by clicking here . Those floral dresses are feminine and that is probably why we often feel she is approachable as a royal member.

Anna Wintour Approved Styles

We wrote about Anna Wintour’s office one year or two ago. The article is  topped as one of our popular blogs. Her office style is just like the way she dresses herself, chic, clean, well-organized yet relaxing with  feminine vibes. If you would like read this article, you can click here 

And today, I am going to mainly focus on her fashion style since you know NYE is coming and we all think how to dress ourselves to welcome the next new decade.

We never see her dress sloppy or out of style at any public moment thanks to her signature essentials that have made her who she has been over the decades.  So, let’s take a look together:

  1. Sunglasses—we rarely see her without glasses .One of the most famous people in the world of fashion, Wintour, who has been editor since 1988 and artistic director for Condé Nast, Vogue’s publisher, since 2013, is seen sporting her heavy black frames to most runway shows and events. She even kept the glasses on when she sat beside Her Majesty the Queen at Richard Quinn’s London Fashion Week runway show in February 2018.5b4f683f51dfbe24008b45cc.jpg

Her reason to wear the sunglasses often was well explained in a 60 Minutes interview in 2009, she reportedly said: “They are seriously useful. I can sit in a show and if I am bored out of my mind, nobody will notice … At this point, they have become, really, armor.”

Well, for whatever the reason, she just looks very cool with that pair of heavy-framed sunglasses.

6 Designer Wall Covering Ideas to Uplift Your Interiors II

Hello, guys, TGIF! It’s another long and hot week. I hope everyone is still doing great!  Have you read my 6 Designer Wall Covering Ideas to Uplift Your Interiors I? If you haven’t, please click here to read And today, I am going to share the rest 3 ideas that you can do  to elevate your living space without doing big construction job.

4. Hang some artworks (or create a gallery wall) that talk to you and coordinate or uniform your current interiors. The frame, the theme, color palettes, the arrangement and how high you should hang them onto the walls all play important roles to create that pleasant artsy decor. Click here to learn some tips on how to hang your artwork like a pro.

 

SWIMG_2187
I really love how they hang this artwork on the blush wall of this pastry’s outdoor space. It is a very chic outdoor space like indoor. The pastel color palette of the artwork is similar to the blush wall background.  Yet pop of the color on the artwork  really make the whole space alive.
greyandwhiteliving-room-16-1537539404
Again, the artwork on the wall with pop of violet color adds a freshness to this monogram-themed space—chic and fashionable
project-19
One of the traditional projects we did—the liliac elegant drapes pull out the lilac and lavender colors on the artworks on the wall to create cohesive and harmonious vibe.
project-1
another project we did—the pink paint on the background wall pairing red color on lady’s dress creates very romantic, feminine feeling for the space.
IMG_2406-1
One of our project–the black and white print on the wall is calming this home office with saturated colors and bold patterns.
IMG_6846
one of our projects—the same creams color palette on the wall and in the artwork creates this  dreamy lounge area.
IMGK7547-3
a pink vintage print pairing 2 modern Emerald Green curved chairs—-fresh and elegant

5. Stencil them up. You may not a big fan of wallpaper, although they are not your grandmother’s wallpaper and there are tones of cool designs out there and they are also much easier to get rid of in case you change your mind. You can stencil you walls instead. The key thing here is you’d got some patterns that work in your space and you have a good painter who know how to do a good job.

holidaymasterbath
One of our projects—instead using stripe wallpaper, we stenciled the vanity wall  with stripe pattern.
IMGP8166-1
one of our projects—the vanity wall in this powder room is tiled with  large-format tiles and mother-pearl mosaic inserts from Italy. To save the cost, we stenciled the wall on the both sides of vanity walls in light gloss gray and matte gray— subtle yet still make a statement 
stencilwall
We totally custom-made this rose stencil walls in my client’s dining room. You can click here for the details.

6. Just install an over-sized mirror to bounce light, reflect space, create a dilution of much bigger space.
