Hello, December! Christmas decorations are in full force. No matter what’s you mood and how busy you are, it’s really up to you to make any holiday season festive, happy and special. There is only one Christmas a year. Why not make it beautiful? If you are not into big construction work, there are so many different ways to decorate your houses in this holiday season. Here is our project I would love to share with you :
There are 5 steps we did for this project:
Change the wall color from the old dull yellowish color to cheerful candy pink—it’s youthful, feminine and elegant. The traditional Regency walnut breakfast table, Louis-XVI chairs and trimmed upholstered sectional sofa add a touch of classic and make the space more grow-up.
Add a cream faux fur area rug to make the room cozy and inviting.
We go all natural from Christmas tree, green branches around beams to dried fruit wreath at the back of the chairs. It’s more fun, inspiring to play with natural materials. Here are some guidelines on how to take care of real Christmas trees.
Have some modern brass lighting fixtures to make the room dazzle–it can truly fresh up an old space immediately.
Make your table display festive and beautiful—it’s show time.
We all know that celebrities’ tastes are a little bit different and they like crazy things for their homes. This claim, however, isn’t true all the time. Some of them actually rather want to have a place where they are able to wind down and have a cup of tea. Crazy or not, here are some of our favorite styles leading by Obama’s.
the Obama family is moving to an 8,200-square-foot house they’ll be renting in the exclusive Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, D.C. after they leave the White House.
2. Michael Phelps purchased a stunning 6,010-square-foot home with five bedrooms, 6.5 baths and a pool with views of Camelback Mountain in Arizona..
3. Quite opposite to Marc Jacob’s free-spirited temperament, his Manhattan home is in fact composed and elegant.
4. Marc Jacob’s living room. “I just want to live with things I genuinely love. But I didn’t want the house to feel like a pristine gallery or a Deco stage set—just something smart, sharp, and comfortable.”
5. At home in SoHo, Arianna Huffington, the author of a new book called “The Sleep Revolution,” sleeps — soundly — in a bedroom decorated in pale, soothing colors.
6. Fashion designer Monique Lhuiller Bel Air home.
7. Fashion designer designer Jenni Kayne’s Lake Taco vocation home.
9. Actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth’s happy place.
I hope you enjoy the tour and get inspired to create your own happy place.
After spending 3 days on the road, I really just love to chill out at home. A cozy banquette, a table with flower print table cloth, an armed Louis XVI chair, Chinoiserie vases and tea pot… Isn’t this room adorable? Yes, pillows and a lots of natural lights make it even better. What is your Friday plan?
