A Kitchen Event

When we  just came back KBIS a week ago, we were really blown away by some of the innovations in the show.  After all, the kitchen is the fastest growing sections among the whole home improvement industry.  We always see some of the coolest things in kitchen from pro cooking appliances, range hoods, to refrigerators, faucets, countertop, smart technologies, lightings, etc…   Although  I am still working on the blog of KBIS 2019 (hope soon I can publish it), we were invited   to a  local trade kitchen showroom industry event several days ago, and actually were  able to see  some newer trends and technologies in the showroom that resonate what we saw from KBIS2019.   This kitchen showroom is not that big but quite modern, neat and sleek even with a luxury walk-in closet and some cool technologies.   Ladies, who doesn’t love a stylish, open and airy walk-in closet with a lot of bells and whistles?!!! And last but not the least, we had professional chefs working in the kitchen and making some yummy gourmet foods.  Here are some of our wonderful moments from this beautiful night!

Fresh flowers always make guests feel so welcoming!  I just love these saturated colors! They create a cheerful mood and beautiful moments.  It is always such a good idea to have some fresh plants and flowers in kitchens.  They make everyone happy and enhance the appetites!

Miele Coffee machine—How neat it is! The coffee station incorporating  a compact coffee machine in the kitchen is quite trendy in 2019.  It’s convenient and very handy.  Who wouldn’t love the coffee aroma in the earlier morning in our own kitchens?

Here is my espresso just made from Miele coffee machine!

Well, after being through all of those  above kitchen experiences, I think everyone just cannot wait to create a pretty live-in kitchen for ourselves or host a family/friends get-tother event soon in the already-pretty kitchens.  After all, it is a life style!

Ok, let’s continue our beautiful evening by walking to the rear of the showroom.  Wow,  here is the large walk-in closet:

Florals for Spring

 

I am always looking for inspiration from my surroundings, nature, tech, art… And , of course, the fashion.  I am so so fascinated by this week’s Paris Couture Fashion Show. It is the best time to stretch one’s  imagination.   Don’t you agree with me?

One of my favorites is Valentino Couture.  The house designer Pierpaolo Piccioli truely took ‘ Florals for Spring’ to a new level.  It is beyond ordinary beautiful.  From the fresh color palettes to romantic dreamy floral patterns, these designs are such joyful eye candies.  It looks like the designer brought a spring garden to runway.  I couldn’t wait to share them with you:

For interior design industry, we love floral patterns too. They add a touch of elegance to any room to make it soft and romantic atmosphere:

A splash of Pink

For some weired reason, I always have a mood for color of pink on Wednesday.  What about you?  What is your mood color on Wednesday?  From hot pink, blush to muted pastel, pink always evokes feeling of romance, dream, elegance, feminism, sophistication and sweetness.
