6 Ways to Create an Enveloped Cozy Dining Room

In case you don’t have that much natural light in your dining room, it will be a perfect time to create an intimate dining space with an enveloped jewel-box specially when the chill weather is coming. We did the exact same thing for the dining room in the hill house in Orange County.  Here are the 3 tips how we did:

Here are the 3 tips how we did:

  1. Have a dark monochrome color platte on the walls and flooring.
  2. Use crisp white marble and cream upholstered chairs to create a nice contrast.
  3. Have a good lighting design: the over-sized drum chandelier is the focal point of the whole room.
  4. Have a jewel-tones tablewares and decor objects to dress up the table—we use some glass pumpkins for the seasonal fall decor.
  5. Use upholstered folding screens to invite warmth.
  6. Have a touch of gold like the way we use on the picture frame and brass candle holder.

Tabletop Setup Before & After

One of the things I am passionate about all the time is to set up a tabletop for whatever the reasons .   It’s fun and  it’s about celebrating life with beautiful things.   Here are 5 elements to successfully set up a table:

  1. Runners, placemats,  or fresh-patterned tablecloth
  2. Chanderliers
  3. Candles
  4. Floral enter piece
  5. China

My Dining-room Makeover

Hi, guys, Happy Saturday!  As usual, I love to work in my garden a little bit earlier in the morning just to refresh my mind and feel good.  My backyard garden looks  so green and lush now.

Dining Room Decor Ideas for Small Spaces

What if you don’t have an extra room for a formal dining room.  Here are some ideas.

  1. Design the space as a whole rather than a single room.  Therefore, you are able to arrange everything in a open space, mind  the work flow and leverage the every possible space for your dining area.

2. Multi-funcationalities.  The following space can be served both as dining room and be reading nook.  It’s versatile, chic and interesting.Best-Modern-Dining-Room-you-won_t-miss

3. Add banquette against wall for more seating space and cozy vibes.cantinhos-da-cozinha_2_310117

4. Why not put your round dining table to the kitchen.  It’s easy to access to everything and fun to live with.

Spring Fresh Makeover

The weather has been really nice lately.  The roses in my backyard garden start to bloom.  And there was Valentine’s Day.  Therefore, I decided to do some spring make over a week ago.  The color palette I used here is magenta, pink,  lavender, gold and neutrals.  Here are some vignettes I love to share here:

Playing different shades of pink. Love the pale pink table cloth which makes everything look so soft and subtle.  Gold truly adds a touch of sophistication and class to any space.

Beautiful blooms from my backyard. I mixed purple and hot pink together.  It’s fashionable, chic and cheerful.

Hello, May!

Elegance is in the details— the subtle shades of pink, lilac, yellow,  the craftmanship on the carvings, the finish of the wood surface , the sophistication of each object and the way how they relate to each other.  When we finally put these together, it is a big wow to the client.
