It is time to celebrate summer. From today, we are going to share a series of moodboards we designed to showcase how we create the summer retreat at home by bringing in color, texture, pattern, craftsmanship and etc..
The Summer Retreat Moodboard—Glam Dining Room
The black-and-white abstract fern wallpaper sets the tone for the overall dining room design. It is fun, chic and adds depth,dimension and pattern to the space in a calming way. The dining set is modern and glam thanks to the brass X frame of the dining table and the geometric design on the black sideboard. The buffet table lamp is clean and contemporary while the silver wall mirror atop of the black side board lights up the space with a fresh modern flair. Two red velvet brass side chairs flanking the black sideboard infuse a pop of warm color. The curved white sculptures on the sideboard make the space feel adorable and interesting. And who does’t love the fresh roses?
The indoor-outdoor area rug is low key and grounds the whole space. The black-lining chandelier is the focal point and adds a touch of timelessness and sophistication to this dining room.
Introduce a glamourous piece of the sideboard to your home and upgrade the home decor. The sideboard proudly showoffs metal accents that bring the style factor to the piece while its sled base provides stability to the piece. The stylish piece is a must-have
Bring two worlds together with this head-turning dining table from the Alfredo collection. Dramatic dark walnut finish over oak veneer and MDF gives this tabletop handsome modern appeal. The classic double X trestle table base is reminiscent of iconic picnic tables , but updated in metal construction. The aged gold finish creates a striking contrast with the dark tabletop, sure to be a conversation starter. Pair this table with your choice of side chairs for a truly dramatic dining room combination.

Mood-board of the Day—a modern glam entryway that features with a clean-lined modern classical console table, a group of Chinoiserie hand-painted vases, a pair of crystal table lamps and an oversized artwork.
It is an art to make a home both sophiticated and livable. Luckily, we came across such a home when we searched inspiration today. The house is located in the historic northwest Portland neighborhood of Kings Heights. It took five years to complete the interiors of this 1922 Federal-style 5,400-square-foot house. The design team did such a great work to find a way to make the home feel open…while still respecting the period of the house.
We love the muted white paint on the walls and all of the natural elements from the rug to hanging bags that bring in a touch of nature. The arch doorways , the details on the doors and a framed artwork indicate a sophiticated taste of the owners.
A timeless beautiful home often pleases our eye by its sophisticated color palette and layered arrangement. Minimalism has being dominated the market for many years. And the true masters’ minimalism work often has a touch of warmth and timelessness that make a home homey. Today, we are going to virtually tour a home that is sleek, modern yet having all of bells and whistles.
We all need a little bit inspiration with the current pandemic situation. Today we will take you to a gorgeous modernized Spanish colonial house in West Hollywood and it is filled with amazing art and color. This beautiful home is owned by music and fashion industry veteran Kent Belden and husband Dr. Louis Re and designed by AD 100 Brigette Romanek. We first met Barigette in one of the seminars she spoke on design week in PDC. She is such a warm, nice, approachable elegant lady and her design is often vibrant, fashion-forward and unexpected. Here are some of our highlights from the house.
We have talked about blue and red, today we are going to talk about patriotic color white.
White is the lightest color and is achromatic (having no hue). It is the color of fresh snow, chalk and milk, and is the opposite of black. White objects fully reflect and scatter all the visible wavelengths of light. One of the biggest trends in 2020 is Off-White Color collections from different paint brands. Inherently sophisticated and endlessly versatile, Off-White collections often offers subtle nuances of whites that suit tranquil, serene environments as well as creates color-enhancing accents for dynamic spaces.
All White Kitchens
All white kitchen style has dominated the market for years and still stays strong with more evolving elements.
We are impressed by how the design team transformed this 1980s Georgian-style home with high glamor and edge while keeping its classical bone. The house was originally designed by local architect Paul Turney and built to such a high level. So the design team decided just to add new flooring and windows with larger panes, an iron stair rail in lieu of a more traditional wooden version, and a stone surround for the front door rather than tearing down the original structure. Other changes include opening up the kitchen and incorporating an adjacent family room, reconfiguring the master bathroom and adding a covered back patio for easier outdoor living. Here are highlights of our favorite spaces. Let’s take a tour together.
We are continuing our 5 Celebrities’ Styles at Home series today to start a whole new week. Today will be our episode 2—Tony Burch at Home. You can click here to read episode I.
Tory Burch at Home

And here is a little bit more info about her on Forbes.
Fashion mogul Tory Burch’s preppy-chic lifestyle brand brings in $1.5 billion in sales from apparel, footwear, watches, accessories, and fragrances.
The art history grad worked with designers Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang before opening a boutique in New York City’s Nolita neighborhood in 2004.

New York Apartment
Artfully layered furnishings, each in vibrant shades of red, orange or green, sit by opulent wallpaper or deco-style monochrome walls. Prints—of flora and fauna, geometric, all ebullient—are recurring fixtures. So are artworks, both large and small, Chinese pottery and old collectables. The overall effect is a luxurious riot of bright hues and patterns. “It’s eclectic,” says Burch, “and very much me.”
“I’m not a big collector, not compared to them at least. What I have always liked about my parents is how they used to gather things together, and in the house, not because of their value but because of their style and beauty. I try to do the same with the items I purchase. I just love mixing pieces from different periods. The old with the new.”
Today, we are going to tour the super stylish Creative Director of VistaJet – the world’s premiere private aviation service – Nina Flohr’s London home. You can clickhere and here to read the first two episodes of our global home tours.
