4 Ideas to Cozy Up Your Home

Today, we are going to talk about 4  solutions that cozy up your  home while elevating your interiors with a touch of sophistication.

  1. Install wallpaper at the entry

It is the entry hall that leaves you with the first impressions of a home, and it is this space that your guests, friends and family get to see first before they explore the rest of the residence. So why not make it warm, inviting and elegant? Wallpaper is coming back huge in 2020 with some really cool modern design.


And worry about installation? If you would like to install by yourself,  peel and stick removable wallpaper might be one of your your options.

2. Have a skirted table at the corner of your room.

Well, you don’t need a perfect table, but by dressing it up in your favorite fabric, you will elevate your interiors with a touch of elegance and sophistication in a second. Plus, fabric always makes  us feel warm and inviting.




3. Is there a such thing as too many throw pillows?

A tasteful throw pillow can say a lot about you. Plus a pile of pillows add coziness to your home in no time.

Lee Radziwill’s Chic Paris’s Pied-à-terre

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.

Elle Decor, 2009

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.

Elle Decor 2013. Don’t you love these chinoiserie patterned fabric?  This is her favorite Chinoiserie Le Manach fabric which brings the soul, feminity and elegance to the room.
This is the real-estate photo when the house was put on sale several years ago.
Another real-estate photo when the house was put on sale several years ago.
Obviously, pink is her favorite color.  With a large amount of creams and whites in the back ground,  mixed patterns of stripes, chinoiserie played off with pink on the sofa..  It is just such an elegant and peaceful place you want to wind down.
Again, pink, stripe pattern, plant artworks, florals, neutrals for the  background and the sunshines… I would love to just sit here for the whole day watching doves flying by.
Chic, chic, chic…
A true style icon.

Lavender is Ladylike

Wouldn’t you agree with me that lavender is ladylike ?  It’s refreshing, chic and elegant.  It’s a symbol of spring garden.  When it reaches middle of February we are really looking forward to spring.  Lavender , blush, pale blue with the pops of bright yellow and  pink truly make this living room a heaven.  Mix-and-match of chinoiserie, stripes and bold exquisite geometric pattern on the sofa trims make the room formal, sophisticated and whimsical.

A Living Room Vignette Inspired by Pantone Fall 2016 Colors

September is here!  Times just goes so fast.  I still feel we just started a new 2016.  And now it’s September!   When fall starts, we are naturally attracted to the saturated warm colors.   I am on the same path, too.   I like colors.   Inspired by Pantone Fall 2016 colors,  we created room vignettes for 2016 fall season.  I am so excited to share with you right here.  On today’s blog, I am going to show you a super warm, fashionable and chic living room by using Pantone Spicy Mustard, Aurora red, Riverside and Airy Blue.

pantone fall colors.jpg

Spicy mustard is warm and inviting just like the sunlights in the fall.    We light it up a little bit and used it on the paneling walls paired it with bold Aurora Red on a channel-back long sofa with fringe trims.  The whole theme is now becoming chic and sexy.  The living room is no longer grandma’s yellow sunny room, but with a touch of Hollywood glamor. Both Riverside and Airy Blue are accents colors in this room.  We used them on the table lamp, decorative objects to infuse the space with some cool fresh feelings.  Here is the room:



We have talked about this sofa on our blog before.  Now we used in this room.  Again, channel-back sofa is in and we love the vintage yet still very modern and feminine feeling.


Red Velvet Channel-back Sofa


The floral pattern upholstered chair is so elegant and feminine.  The shades of pink, red, green, blue and yellow on the chair create a such nice contrast with saturated mustard and red colors. Don’t you agree that althrough we are attracted to warm fall colors in the Fall season, we still desire  a chill of spring feel?  So why not make it happen in our home?

Upholstered Floral Chair

The gilded bench picks up the mustard color from the wall.  Now we see there is a conversation going on.

Gilded Bench



The dark brown shade on iron chandelier kind of balances off  the saturated warm colors in the space yet the sparkling crystals on the lighting still emphasize the elegance .  The clean-line shape of the chandelier is a nice contrast with the curved sofa and bench.


Iron Chanderlier


The chevron pattern  lamp shades  are custom-made.  The pattern adds youthfulness to the space to make it fun and playful.



Royale  blue vase is a jewelry box in the room.

Truly love these oversized vases.  They add a modern flair into the room.




Love this flower shape plate.





Love the trim on the table by the long red sofa— very cotour.Screen Shot 2016-08-31 at 12.52.25 PM



This black-white art work with gold frame anchored the whole room.



Let us know how you like the room and colors.  Most items here are custom-made, if you are interested in any of them.  Please contact us.
