A Tribute to Kobe Bryant

Today, basketball icon Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were remembered at an emotional public tribute as thousands of mourners gathered at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. And several weeks ago , we visited LA Live square just as thousands others from the world to pay our tribute to Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna.

Kobe’s quote On chasing success

“When you make a choice and say, ‘Come hell or high water, I am going to be this,’ then you should not be surprised when you are that. It should not be something that is intoxicating or out of character because you have seen this moment for so long that … when that moment comes, of course it is here because it has been here the whole time, because it has been [in your mind] the whole time.”

Kobe’s quote on hard work

  • “I can’t relate to lazy people. We don’t speak the same language. I don’t understand you. I don’t want to understand you.”
  • “I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work and perseverance. No excuses.”
  • “Dedication sees dreams come true.”

Kobe’s quote on winning

  • “I’ll do whatever it takes to win games, whether it’s sitting on a bench waving a towel, handing a cup of water to a teammate, or hitting the game-winning shot.”
  • “The moment you give up is the moment you let someone else win”

Kobe’s quote on resilience

  • “I’m here. I’m not going anywhere. No matter what the injury — unless it’s completely debilitating — I’m going to be the same player I’ve always been. I’ll figure it out. I’ll make some tweaks, some changes, but I’m still coming.”
  • “Everything negative — pressure, challenges — is all an opportunity for me to rise.”

5 Ways to Craft an Unique High-Style Dining Room

One of the fun things we love to do at home is to sit around the dining table with candles on  and soft music on at the end of the day.  We feel we really need this to wind down each day and to get ready for a good-night sleep.  we also love to put up a  festive themed tabletop on each holiday since  we celebrate almost every holiday as much as we can. Besides kitchen, a dining room is the place where people get together with families and friends for formal parties or casual gatherings all the time. So, the design of a dining room is really important for you to enjoy by yourself to the maximum and nourish  your loving relationships. And you want this space to be unique and reflect your own personality and of course well designed.  Today we are going to talk about 12 ways to devise a one-of-the-kind dining room.

1. Decide function first. Before you start the design process, you need to know how you would like to use this space—a formal dining or a casual gathers only?  The way how you want to use the space will set the foundation for the design process.

1483485427-ver020117papachristidis08-copy-1
Alex Papachristidis’s dining room for last spring’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York incited a frenzy on social media—so much so that even the interior designer, a bit of an Instagram sensation himself with more than 52,000 follow­ers, was surprised. Still, he’d expected the room to make an impression. “That’s what you do with a showhouse: You go wild,” he says. “People want to be wowed.”

Although the dining room is getting more casual and relaxed, still, most of home owners still want to make their dining room very  formal with a big wow factor. If this the case, the striking artwork, unique wall-treatment,  flooring, right light fixtures, one-of-the-kind furnishings and upscale custom furniture might be the options for you to consider. In this New Yorker Designer Alex Papachristidis designed dining room, the light-grey-colored hand-painted wallpaper is one of the key features for this stunning sumptuous  dining room.  Also the gilded Louis XVI dining chairs really stand out from the muted almost monogram color palette. The crystal chandelier, the gilded clock  further emphosis the wow factor and luxury feel. So our suggestions here to crrate a formal dining room: invest in a good-quality dining table setting and choose furnishings to compliment the dining table setting.

2. Have a focal point.

The trick here is to make the table the center of attention, so that your guests are compelled to take a seat and dinner companions are the main focus.  Once the table is situated, arrange all other furnishings and accessories so that they complement this focal point. Also read this article on tables-capes.

3. Gold bold  with colors and surface treatments.

Unique colors and textures completely transform a space by  creating  interesting textures and surfaces in the major horizontal planes: the floor, the table, and the ceiling.

a scenic tapestry on the wall can be a conversation starter.

4. Mix and Match.

Mixing and matching  furnishings, lighting, or artwork is a fun part to design your dining room. It often creates unexpected result and makes the style of the space timeless.

5. Always looking for custom furnishings.

We assume you want to have a dining room  unlike any other. So please always look for  custom furnishings. A one-of-a-kind table or unique chairs will help a dining room stand out. The custom, live-edge wood table is the focal point of this space
