7 Ways to Incorporate Antiques to Interiors

Antiques can add depth, personality and timelessness to any interiors. There are 7 ways to incorporate antique to your spaces.

1. Start small.

This small ornate antique mirror is very interesting and whimsical and has a nice contrast with the contemporary wall paneling.

 

2 . Have a new lamp-shade or reupholster an antique piece to make it look chic and fresh.

We particularly love this wide green banding at the bottom of the lamp-shade and it adds a touch of fresh elegance to an aged object.

6 ways to Master the Art of Mixing and Matching for Your Home Decor

We often have fun to mix  high and low, old and new and of course different aesthetics. Mixing of all kinds will add interest and character into the space.  In order to keep the cohesive vibe overall, we will have to  use some common elements to thread through the different layers.  And  here is the case study for the corner space for the project we recently designed. We would like to create a chic, fresh, elegant, polished decor  style while still keeping it inviting and cozy.  Here is how we did it—today, we are going to share 6 tips on how we artfully mix high and low, modern and classical, old and new to achieve this goal.

  1. Rule #1, always keep an overall color palette  neutral if you are going to take a mix& match approach.

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.

Bundy_Teen_Door_0050-edit-720x900.jpg

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

You can view the whole collection by clicking here

And we are in the process to reveal our Holiday Show-House 2019–2020 and yes, we use a lot of white-on-white tones, you can click here to check the cream dining room  we just revealed today

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
