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.
Rule #1, always keep an overall color palette neutral if you are going to take a mix& match approach.
Hi, guys, just let you know if you feel a little bit sad that the holiday season is over, I have a good news for you that Chinese New Year is coming. Yes, Chinese New Year is on 25th of this month and this year is Year of the Rat and you have to celebrate it in a big way because the year of the rat always indicates a big fortune coming to you. So be ready to receive it.
Well, Do above these adorable rats put a big smile on your face? They are created by Shaun Teo Creations in Kuala Lumpur. I am a big fan of Shaun Teo Creations on Instagram. They craft all kinds of cute cakes for different festivals and events. I have been always got inspired by their work. I believe they are now opening pre-orders for those lovely Chinese New Year’s cookies. Just check them out on Instagram.
So, today , since I am truly inspired by the red color they use for their product, I going to talk about Color of Red in home decor.
Red, corresponding with fire, symbolizes good fortune and joy. Red is found everywhere during Chinese New Year and other holiday celebrations and family gatherings.
Here are some inspirations.
Red, specially lacquer red on walls makes rooms look sumptuous and elegant. And of course, you always can choose red as an accent color.
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
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:
Muted pastel color palette on tiles, ceramic objects:
2. Dramatized Lighting Fixtures:

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.
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.
