Can you believe that it comes to the end of May so soon and soon fast. It looks like we haven’t really lived the year of 2020 and then the second half is about to start. So, the best we can do is to live our best as much as we can. In case you need some ideas to make this long weekend truly memorable, we collected some our favorite ideas from Instagram and click each image to learn more.
With closing down of state and county parks, beach fronts in California , once again, we will have to spend more time in our home. The human nature is that the longer you stay in one place, the more you start to focus on every details. And that may drive you crazy. Our experience is that maybe it is time for you to do something. Rather than just staring at something that is not pleasing to the eye, do something about it–de-cluttering, re-organizing and creating something beautiful. So at the end of the day, you can at least take a break and enjoy your labor fruits. Read on to learn how bring more fun to your family room in style.
1. Take advantage of your view if you are lucky to have one.
Please, please free up your space in front of your windows or your patio door if you happen to have a view of a beautiful garden, a meadow, magical mountains, breath-taking ocean or deep green forest. In the photo above, we love how the blue velvet sofa sits against a wall and oversees the outdoor view. The trick here is those two striped upholstered X-benches. They will not block your outdoor views. Rather, they provide flexible seating options.

2. Have a corner table setup
One of benefits of having a corner table-set up in your family room is that it is able to use the dead space in the corner and creates a new activity zone (such as game table)for the whole family. You know we all have that feeling when we sit around a table in Starbucks and we intend to be able to focus on our reading or our work although it is pretty noisy in the surroundings. And fun part is that you can add your own decor style and personality.
It might be a little bit late to post our Holiday ShowHouse 2018–2019. But come on, it’s still Jan of 2019 and Chinese New year is coming. So it’s time to be festive and it’s time to celebrate.
The inspiration of our Holiday ShowHouse 2018—2019 is inspired by Pantone Color of the Year 2019–Live Coral—fashionable, bold, youthful, energetic and innovative. After several years of muted color palettes, millennium pink and grey, we feel it is time to break through to celebrate holidays with something fresh. Therefore, we are able to stay prospective for the future. Meanwhiles, Holidays are truly about traditions. We mix and match traditions with modern, Live Coral with vintage pink, emerald green with hot pink, camel with purple, Chinoiserie accessories with minimalism furniture, geometric patterns with classic forms and fine crystals with organic ceramic. The end result of this year’s holiday show house decoration is fun, edgy, playful yet still elegant and sort of traditional. Enjoy!
