The Magical Power of Textiles at Home

What makes a house home often is the coziness and warmth that we are feeling. Mid-century modern and stark minimalism have dominated our home furnishing market for a long, long time. When we pay attention to the details of these styles, the interiors usually ,from floor to ceiling, to walls ,  most of furniture are often hard-surfaced. They inevitably give us a very cold feeling. All of the hard-surface can hardly absorb the sounds. But textiles just do the opposite. So if we would like to create a soothing and quiet home, make sure you use different textile applications for our home. Today, we are going to talk about  7 benefits of using textiles at home.

1. They bring in fresh colors, textures and patterns. By doing so, they give depth, dimension and interest to any space. They simply make us feel excited.

Happy Mother’s Day. We tried backyard picnic, backyard cocktails, backyard BBQ and ShabyShabu. So for this Mother’s Day weekends, we decided to try something special and different— charcuterie boards paired with some wines.  That way, we could really slow down, chill out and enjoy every small bite.

A Beautiful Light-a-Light Event by David Monn

Guys, TGIF! It looks like that  we have been busier than our normal life before quarantine. Hope  you finally slow down and have some guilty pleasures such as doing nothing or having a cocktails with a little sugar on this Friday.

I always look forward to each Friday simply because I can spend more time in my backyard for meditation, stretching  or just laying on the grass listening  to some beautiful music.

And this Friday is quite special because we participated David Monn’s Light-a-Light event.   David Monn , the founder and CEO of David Monn, LLC, is  a renowned New York event master planner. Monn has been responsible for organizing and producing a variety of prominent events at locations like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, Guggenheim Museum, among others. His work is truly breath-taking.

Probably at this strange time,  the best getaway for some of us is a beautifully landscaped home garden.  I came across some stunning home gardens when I browsed internet today  and would love to share 9 of them that we fall in love with.

Spring Moments in the Backyard

 

When I am writing this blog, I am playing   @dnice IG live in the background. I truly don’t know what’s  American quarantine’s life like  without @dice Club Quarantine. I am grateful that he makes everyone feel upbeat, connected and belonging. Now it is one of our rituals to dress up for @dnice IG live  parties on Saturdays.

 

Well, spring 2020 is quite different.  We used to go to different design shows, natural reserves, concerts, galleries, public gardens, flower shows… And this year, we spent most of time in our backyard. Here are some of  my spring moments in my backyard.

The subtle gold wall-covering elevates and lights up a narrow hallway . A fresh orange flower arrangement adds a dose of excitement. We love the view in the hallway that is able to see a very elegant drapery on the landing area of the stairs , which hints a sophisticated taste for the rest of the home.

easter-1easter-2

From bunny themed dinnerware, flatware, to adorable treats, cake-stands,  glass figurines, pastels, bight colors, and luxurious fabric, today we are going to share 6 ideas to bright up your Monday.

  1. Pastels—the mood is soft, tranquil and inviting.

Because Easter occurs in spring, the colors of flowers and flowering tree blossoms are often in the range considered “pastel”. Light blues, turquoise, yellow, green, pink, white, and lavender are all examples of such colors. Also, light orange or coral colors and light shades of turquoise are pastel Easter colors.
