It’s All in Details

One of fun things for us to do an interior design project is to customize a piece of furniture that not only fits into client’s space, satisfies client’s needs, but also brings in intricate sophistication by focusing on details. Yes, small details truly matter and they are the final touches to create a dream home with sophisticated interiors you have being desired for many years. Those details can be if your LED chandelier is warm-dimmable, or your home office chair gives your options to recline with comfort, or the sizes of your sofa is long enough and deep enough for you and your family chill out on it or the structure and cushion of the sofa support ultimate comfort  and durability.

Here is an example how we focus on the details of a  lounge chair we customized for the client for her home office. The client wanted a super stylish chair she was able to seat on and relax during her stay there. And the challenge is that only space  that is available is a small corner   and the office door is  pretty narrow for any large scale of furniture to get in.   In order to satisfy client’s needs, we decided to do our own design from scratch and customized the pieces locally. There are a lot of behind-of-door work and one thing I can share here is all of the trims and piping we used on the chair, ottoman and pillow to delivery that glamorous designer-look.

The concert was pretty awesome.  The star-studded benefit featured at-home performances by the likes of Alicia Keys, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, Dave Grohl and more. Tim McGraw, Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong and Sam Smith also performed, while Demi Lovato, Lizzo and Lady Gaga made special appearances during the evening encouraging fans with messages of hope and positivity.

For us, we are also very excited to see a little bit how these celebrities live and what their living rooms look like. Read on to see our 9 takeaways on how these Celebrities’ live.

1. The navy blue sofas are the most popular ones in these celebrities home.

Alicia Keys’ mid-century navy blue tufted sectional is chic, comfy and stylish. An orange pillow just adds a perfect pop of color. The navy blue in the artwork over the sectional and her piano continue the blue theme. Then a wood oval mid century modern coffee-table breaks the navy blue theme and let the eye take a rest.

5 Ways to Craft an Unique High-Style Dining Room

One of the fun things we love to do at home is to sit around the dining table with candles on  and soft music on at the end of the day.  We feel we really need this to wind down each day and to get ready for a good-night sleep.  we also love to put up a  festive themed tabletop on each holiday since  we celebrate almost every holiday as much as we can. Besides kitchen, a dining room is the place where people get together with families and friends for formal parties or casual gatherings all the time. So, the design of a dining room is really important for you to enjoy by yourself to the maximum and nourish  your loving relationships. And you want this space to be unique and reflect your own personality and of course well designed.  Today we are going to talk about 12 ways to devise a one-of-the-kind dining room.

1. Decide function first. Before you start the design process, you need to know how you would like to use this space—a formal dining or a casual gathers only?  The way how you want to use the space will set the foundation for the design process.

1483485427-ver020117papachristidis08-copy-1
Alex Papachristidis’s dining room for last spring’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York incited a frenzy on social media—so much so that even the interior designer, a bit of an Instagram sensation himself with more than 52,000 follow­ers, was surprised. Still, he’d expected the room to make an impression. “That’s what you do with a showhouse: You go wild,” he says. “People want to be wowed.”

Although the dining room is getting more casual and relaxed, still, most of home owners still want to make their dining room very  formal with a big wow factor. If this the case, the striking artwork, unique wall-treatment,  flooring, right light fixtures, one-of-the-kind furnishings and upscale custom furniture might be the options for you to consider. In this New Yorker Designer Alex Papachristidis designed dining room, the light-grey-colored hand-painted wallpaper is one of the key features for this stunning sumptuous  dining room.  Also the gilded Louis XVI dining chairs really stand out from the muted almost monogram color palette. The crystal chandelier, the gilded clock  further emphosis the wow factor and luxury feel. So our suggestions here to crrate a formal dining room: invest in a good-quality dining table setting and choose furnishings to compliment the dining table setting.

2. Have a focal point.

The trick here is to make the table the center of attention, so that your guests are compelled to take a seat and dinner companions are the main focus.  Once the table is situated, arrange all other furnishings and accessories so that they complement this focal point. Also read this article on tables-capes.

3. Gold bold  with colors and surface treatments.

Unique colors and textures completely transform a space by  creating  interesting textures and surfaces in the major horizontal planes: the floor, the table, and the ceiling.

4. Mix and Match.

Mixing and matching  furnishings, lighting, or artwork is a fun part to design your dining room. It often creates unexpected result and makes the style of the space timeless.

5. Always looking for custom furnishings.

We assume you want to have a dining room  unlike any other. So please always look for  custom furnishings. A one-of-a-kind table or unique chairs will help a dining room stand out. The custom, live-edge wood table is the focal point of this space

9 Ideas on Making your Bedroom Look Chic, Serene and Luxurious

It has being poured hard outside since earlier this morning in Los Angeles. We guess nothing can beat staying in a warm and comfy home.  Today, we are going to talk about 9 ideas for a fresh bedroom upgrade.

1. Have a soothe and relaxing color palette.

Color Sets the Tone for Relaxation

Image3-56a529995f9b58b7d0db31d6
Cool cream—This soft, clean palette is the perfect combination of tranquility and luxury. Using fresh, white linens and a neutral palette similar to this gives your bedroom a hotel-type feel, making it easy to fall into the covers and imagine yourself somewhere far, far away.
C1Image5-56a5299b5f9b58b7d0db31dc
Soft Whites, Pinks, & Grays—Soft pinks are another favorite to use when it comes to creating a relaxing mood in the bedroom. Paired with a few simple neutrals, this pretty color is the perfect way to add a soft touch of soothing femininity to a bedroom, like this one featured on the SF Girl site.
C2Color-Lesson-from-Matri-and-Susanna-Vento-02
Blush,  cream, brown. light gray and soft white

In a bedroom, where we most need to strike a calm and relaxing chord, the color becomes an even more important part of creating a sanctuary. Picking a color that you love, and pairing it with the right secondary colors, is the best way to create a space that you will enjoy – one in which you can relax and refresh.

a8d8772ac19aa442f2ebe344bdbff062

Image4-56a5299a5f9b58b7d0db31d9
There is just something about cool grays and blues that gives any room a smooth, laid-back vibe. In this bedroom featured on the SF Girl site, the paint color has a touch of purple, giving it a regal, sophisticated feel. Meanwhile, the lighter grays and whites in the space make a statement against the darker painted wall. Investing in good white bedding like this is one of the best ways to make your space feel relaxing and comfortable.

2. Add a stylish bench or a petite loveseat to the end of a bed.

One of the most practical (and therefore traditional) pieces to put at the end of a bed is a bench.  The ideal place to plop down and tie your sandals in the morning or kick them off at the end of a day.

3. Have a vanity or writing desk–a clever and pretty way to spend more time in your bedroom in a style.

If you have a small room, you can think about replacing your regular nighstands with a sleek writing desk or vanity desk.

4. Upgrade  your hanging light fixtures.

A unique hanging light fixture often adds a sophistication layer to  a bedroom.  Hang the chandelier over the center of the bed. Shorten the chain, so the bottom of the chandelier hangs seven feet above the floor. For ceilings higher than nine feet, consider hanging a two-tier chandelier, so the room doesn’t overpower the chandelier.

5. Hang a pair of smaller chandeliers at each bedside and save precious space on the top of bedside tables. For the most benefit when reading in bed, hang each fixture 20-30 inches above the nightstand so it rests at about the same place as a standard bedside table lamp.

6. Over-filled pillows on your bed.

There’s something so luxurious about plush, overfilled throw pillows, which go a long way in transforming your bedroom from “everyday” to a bonafide retreat that emulates the most sumptuous of hotels.

7. Incorporate a rug. Adding texture and warmth to your bedroom is one of the easiest ways to boost its style factor. Whether you’re partial to florals or understated designs, like jute, a chic rug can pull your bedroom together in an instant.

8. Display some artworks.

Show off your style with a statement piece of artwork, whether it’s a sculpture, photograph, or colorful painting. While it can certainly be displayed on a wall, leaning your favorite piece against a wall can be just as powerful.

As always, the quickest and easiest way to upgrade your room from “average” to “expensive-looking” is to add some greenery. What form this takes is up to you: A large fern? Small potted plants on your dresser? No matter how, adding a few plants helps a room make the final leap to luxury.  And of course, fresh flowers will add a touch of elegance to your bedroom.
