10 New White Hues from Dunn-Edwards

A range of white hues have been my favorite color schemes since they always help create either a timeless classical room or lay-back crispy beach style. And most importantly, the whites are always able to work with other colors to create a very balanced decor. If you really want to use Pantone color of the year 2019–Live Coral, it is always a good idea to add some punch of warm whites to balance off this super bright hue to make the space more livable. And of course, who doesn’t love white-on-white tones to create  such a soothe and relaxing environment. The good news is that Dunn-Edwards recently expanded its collection of whites in the Perfect Palette® color system with a new collection of 10 higher-hiding whites, offering design professionals and consumers even more choices.

Here are 10 new white hues from Dunn-Edwards

  • Almond Milk (DEHW01): a soft warm and fresh white that creates an inviting space
  • White Daisy (DEHW02): a brighter, crisp white with a touch of warmth that plays well with other colors, yet can stand on its own
  • Coconut Grove (DEHW03): a neutral, bright white that is clear and clean and a perfect pairing for pastels
  • Swiss Meringue (DEHW04): a neutral, soft white that balances warmth and coolness
  • At First Light (DEHW05): a neutral white with depth that is perfect for modern and traditional projects
  • North to Alaska (DEHW06): a neutral, cooler white that is crisp and clean
  • Sugar Swizzle (DEHW07): a neutral, cooler white with depth to avoid a sterile look
  • Classic White (DEHW08): a cool white that is illuminating and pure
  • Be Cool (DEHW09): a cool white that is brilliant and sparkling with energy, great for trim work and modern spaces
  • Icy White (DEHW10): a cool white that’s snowy and bright

3 Home Trends from WestEdge 2019

It had been super busy in the last several days from WestEdge show to working on the on-going  projects. WestEdge is hosted every year at the end of Oct mainly to show local small home goods makers’ handcrafted products in Los Angeles and of course some global brands in kitchen and bath as well.  The show venue is usually modern and chic. I partially enjoy their outdoor lounge area in the beautiful SoCal sunshine in fall. Here are 3 homes trends we saw from this year’s show:

  1. Muted pastel color palette on tiles, ceramic objects:

5 Non-Traditional Fall Entry Door Decor

In case, you cannot wait to update your front door decor for the fall season but rather stay away from traditional super saturated fall-color scheme, I have 5 ideas for you.

  1. Paint your door with navy blue, mint blue, grey blue  or all sorts of blue color and do have your favorite pumpkins since orange-blue color palette is chic, modern and fashion-forward. By the way, blue, navy blue and mint blue will be trendy for the next several years and those shades are versatile with different styles.bo1472220882049bofall-porch-decor-plaid-rug-1560179524Front door with Halloween decorationsboMy-Indigo-and-Orange-Fall-Front-Porchbost-lucia-teal

Dunn Edwards 2020 Color of the Year—Minty Fresh

Dunn Edwards announced its 2020 color of the year today. Not surprisingly it is another shade of blue—Minty Fresh after PPT’s China Porcelain and Sherwin William’s Navy Blue. Now I know why all of my design and my fashion tastes are all leaning to color of Blue.

de5687.jpg

Dunn-Edwards® 2020 Color of the Year, Minty Fresh, captures the enthusiasm and optimism of a new decade. As we stand at the portal of a new era, infinite potential lies ahead. It’s invigorating, exciting — Minty Fresh!

maxresdefault.jpg

Minty Fresh — an invigorating, sweet, cool and aromatic hue — defines 2020, as a range of grounded, garden-inspired shades heralds the opportunity for a fresh start. With this mint-infused pastel hue, we are upbeat as we take an optimistic approach to creating and controlling elements that are within our power. And, as with many shades of green, nature is omnipresent, creating tranquility and balance between stillness and progress.

5 Ways to Use Fabric to Transform Your Home

One of things we are excited about Designer Fall Markets is to see the  launchings  of new fabrics. And just like fashion, the new patterns and colors of fabric always bring us joy and happiness. Often, these new patterns and colors of fabric will transform your home like a magical. And without any doubt, using of upholstered pieces in your home will make it more warm, inviting and comfy with a touch of elegance and personality.

IMG_3166.jpg
Visiting one of my favorite showrooms  during the Fall Market. Love this bright orange channeled mid-century comfy sofa and cannot wait to pick up my new fabric samples.

Here is the over-view of the showroom.

And here are the new fabric samples of fall 2019:

IMG_3169.2019-09-28 15_26_36

Aren’t you fall in love with these fresh colors and patterns? Want to see what I got?

 

Yes, I played these fabric samples I picked up on my dining table this morning. OMG, aren’t they beautiful?

As I said that fabric can transform your space in a second. Unfortunately, people are often afraid to use patterns and colors.  So I will share 3 tips on how to  choose fabric in your home:

  1. Choose the colors and patterns that evoke your emotions.

    Photography by Oberto Gili
    Elle Decor
  2. When there are more than 3 patterns, play the proportions and make them into different scales. that way, your eye will not feel the busyness.

  3. You also can go tone-on-tone if there are more patterns involved.

  4. Use colors and patterns on accent pieces and you can update them seasonaly.
