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.

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.

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.

A bathroom needs to be clean and tidy first and all the time. But it doesn’t need to be purely functional , cold,  and utilitarian, especially if you appreciate a nice atmosphere for bubble baths or mirror selfies.  By adding a cozy chair, you’ll be amazed at how much it warms up the space and bring in a big style. To spark some creativity in your own home, we’ve collected a slew of bathroom ideas to help you create an oasis for spa-level relaxation and style at home.

4 Tips to Bring fun to Your Family Room with High Style

 

With closing down of  state and county parks, beach fronts in California , once again, we will have to spend more time  in our home. The human nature is that the longer you stay in one place, the more you start to focus on every details.  And that may drive you crazy. Our experience is that maybe it is time for you to do something. Rather than just staring at something that is not pleasing to the eye, do something about it–de-cluttering, re-organizing and creating something beautiful. So at the end of the day, you can at least take a break and enjoy your labor fruits. Read on to learn how bring more fun to your family room in style.

1. Take advantage of your view if you are lucky to have one.

082716_SherwoodHouseMakeover_19

 

Please, please free up your space in front of your windows or your patio door if you happen to have a  view of a beautiful garden, a meadow,  magical mountains, breath-taking ocean or deep green forest. In the photo above, we love how the blue velvet sofa sits against a wall  and oversees the outdoor view. The trick here is those two striped upholstered X-benches. They will not block your outdoor views. Rather, they provide flexible seating options.

2. Have a corner table setup

022417_KateRheinstenBrodksy_25SalesEvent_78605_Lifestyle_1

One of benefits of having a corner table-set up in your family room is that it is able to use the dead space in the corner and creates a new activity zone  (such as game table)for the whole family.  You know we all have that feeling when we sit around a table in Starbucks and we intend to be able to focus on our reading or our work although it is pretty noisy in the surroundings.  And fun part is that  you can add your own decor style and personality.

Fashion Has a Healing Power

 

If you are just like us and read too much news on development of COVID-19, it is time to take a break and enjoy something that is pleasing to the eye. We came across some amazing fashion pictures over the week and chose some of them to share on our blog today.  The reason we chose the following photos because they make us feel so fresh in the way how they combine unexpected colors together and how they put the different styles of pieces together. It’s truly an art.

Happy Friday, guys!  After the first 5 days of staying-at-home quarantine, you may want to relax a little and experience something exotic without leaving your comfort home.  Today, we are continuing our global home tour series. Today is part  II. You can click here to read part I.

Today, we will take you to tour Colombian fashion designer Johanna Ortiz’s Cartagena vocation home.

Cartagena is a port city on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. By the sea is the walled Old Town, founded in the 16th century, with squares, cobblestone streets and colorful colonial buildings. With a tropical climate, the city is also a popular beach destination. Reachable by boat are Isla de Barú, with white-sand beaches and palm trees, and the Islas del Rosario, known for their coral reefs.

Cartagena-de-Indias-Colombia-1068x712Cartagena-travel-guide

You can see from the photos above, Cartegena is a vibrant town with a breathtaking view of Caribbean Sea and a lot of indigenous culture and crafts. It must be a lot of fun just strolling around here.

 

edc090118ortiz02-1533674051

So here is the fashion designer– Johanna Ortiz standing at her front door  of her vocation home which she comes to visit 7 times a year. The black-and-white color scheme of an ancient Chinese wood door and exterior walls sets the tone for a quiet understated resort.

Then comes a hallway where hand-made Mexican concrete flooring repeats the color scheme of black-and-white on the exteriors. Yet, a colonial antique wood table and wood-framed mirror together with local vintage pieces on the table add layers of warmth. A French crystal chandelier is romantic and sophisticated.

Here is her salon. We love a super long comfy modern sofa  paired with a Chinese Ming dark wood coffee table. And a tiger print throw rug  on the floor adds a modern flair to this space.

 

southern-charm-master-chaise-1533672599

In her bedroom daybed area, comes her play on textiles—floral and geometric prints mingle happily here. The blue-and-white color scheme is peaceful, relaxing and pleasing to the eye.

Here is our favorite space of the home–terrace under a vaulted brick ceiling. We could just sit here for a whole day.  The mix of fine crystal glasses, vintage pieces and local crafts on a large Spanish table are just so striking.

Global Home Tour I—a Beautiful Lebanon Guest House in the Mountains

At this special time, most of us probably cannot travel far away to see  and explore different cultures.  But thanks to internet, we are able to virtually experience some of the most amazing  exotic destinations to cope with life that is full of uncertainties.  Today, we are going to share with you a beautiful Lebanon getaway that is our love at the first sight.

Located in in the mountains near Kfour, a village about 45 minutes north of Beirut, the Beit Trad guesthouse ,  a traditional Lebanese mountain home that Sarah Trad restored and converted into a guesthouse with the help of architect Fadlo Dagher and interior designer Maria Ousseimi welcomes guests with its  Lebanese tradition of hospitality. The guest house also doubles as Sarah’s own personal retreat.

In the living room of the main house, the custom sofas in a Rubelli fabric are topped with pillows covered in vintage African textiles, and the Syrian inlaid mother-of-pearl armchair, Turkish chandelier, and table and chairs by Eero Saarinen for Knoll are all vintage. A papier-mâché hippo from a Paris flea market hangs over a vintage photograph of a masked ball. The vintage prints depicting classical armor (left) are from Ann-Morris.

In the picture above, we love how sumptuous Rubelli velvet fabric and modern Saarinen table and chairs juxtaposes with old world vintage pieces such as an antique rug, a chandelier and wall prints.  The mix of present and past always injects interest and personality to any space.  What really draw us to this living room is its cheerful and fashion-forward red, plump and purple color palette which stands out from  a white wall backdrop. What cannot be better to sit in a beautiful room with fresh flowers, a lot of books, artwork and vintage pieces and of course sunshine.

In the above picture, we are really impressed by a Classic Blue tablecloth with vintage local prints  serves as a canvas to  showcase the delicate dinnerware and beautiful local roses.  Different tasteful textiles on the dining chairs in similar color families  add visual interest yet  still stay cohesive. When things aren’t right in the world, wouldn’t be nice to just sit at  a beautiful cozy table to take time to enjoy a meal or have a cup of tea?

Who wouldn’t love to sit here to enjoy a breathtaking Mediterranean sunset view? A striped upholstered cushy lounge chair  invites us to take a seat on it with a cocktail. The mood here is casual and relaxing.
