Every year we will design Chinese New Year tabletop theme. For lunar New Year 2020, the year of the metal rat, we features the following elements:
Color Palette—embrace Pantone Color of the Year 2020—Classic Blue with touch of traditional Chinese red and pastel pink to create a modern, intimate, chic and festive decor vibe. The large area of white paint in this eat-in space balance off Classic Blue and light up the whole area. In this color palette, we have influences from Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2020–First Light, DunEdwards Color of the Year 2020 –Mint Fresh and PPT color of the Year 2020—China Porcelain.
Mix of modern and clean-line classical furniture to create a fresh, inviting, relaxing, comfy and feminine atmosphere where we are often drawn to for a holiday family get-together.
It is one day away from Halloween. We FINALLY feel the chill of fall in Los Angeles thanks to the strong Santa Ana wind today. Our yesterday’sCelebrate Color of Orange—5 Ways to Incorporate Color of Orange into Your House has gotten super popular. If you haven’t read, you can click here to read. Today we are going to share 4 spiced pumpkin rooms from Schumacher Archive.
Spiced pumpkin drapery is such a nice contrast with the timeless black-white geometrical-patterned wallpaper. The pairing is just like a balanced Yin and Yang. I am always drawn to a skirted table-cloth on the round table in the living room. Somehow, a table-cloth always elevates the space in a second. Suddenly we are ready for a gathering. And of course, the yellow roses on the blue-and-white vases just add another cheerful layer in this happy moment.
We blogged that Benjamin Moore’s color of the year 2020–First Light, if you haven’t read our blog, please click here to read And we think the color is pretty neutral yet moody and can be an elegant backdrop for any interiors. In Orange County Hill Project, we painted Client’s guest bedroom in kind of similar pink color—neutral yet elegant and sophiticated:
The light warm pink create such a dreamy atmosphere. The tufted bed headboard adds depth and interest to the space while the 2 of brass pendants anchor the bedroom and champaign nightstands lend a touch of sophistication. Artwork for sure is the soul of the room. This is a soothe and delicate place place where guests can relax well.
We were recently invited to a private party to take a home tour at one of Paul McClean’s latest contemporary projects at Laguna Beach. It was a beautiful sunny day in the valley and by the beach, there was a little bit marine layers, wrapping the whole beach town in a romantic sheer. And you can see in the following video, the neighborhood is kind of lay-back cottage beach house style which really makes Paul McClean designed home stand out. Ireland-born architect Paul McClean has become somewhat synonymous with the high-end housing boom in Los Angeles. He designed homes for celebrities and high-net-worth buyers that include Calvin Klein, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and the Winklevoss twins — famous for suing Mark Zuckerberg. He likes to play light, air and water for his projects to create very Zen-like atmosphere.
Here are some high-lights that we really like in this contemporary house at Laguna Beach.
The video above is showing the lovely neighborhood.
And here is the entrance–very Zen-like.
