J. Lo’s Chic and Glamorous Home II

Today, we continue to take a look at J. Lo’s Hidden Hills’ mansion interiors. If you haven’t got a chance to read part I, you can click here for details.

Breakfast Nook-–we are truly in love with the color palette in kitchen breakfast area–soft blue on the cabinetry, a romantic touch of fresh pink roses on the trimmed ebony pedestal dining table, all-white elegant dinnerwares and tea wares, antique gold empire chandeliers.  We love the intricate pattern on the china cabinets. When you use a lot of soft and muted color in your space, patterns will bring the layer of interest and they make the space look very sophiticated.

Las Vegas Winter Market 2020 Trip I–Our Hotel Room

—–This site contains affiliate links to products. We may receive a commission for purchases made through these links but you don’t need to pay any extra cost. 

Hi, guys, we just came back from  Las Vegas Winter Market 2020 to see all of the new products, trends, technologies , to  participate industry round table discussions and seminars in furniture and home decor industry.  Overall it was a very productive trip since we were also able to visit several new hotels after the Market. And of course the fabulous Botanical Garden in Belagiowhich features Lunar New Year zodiac theme each year.   And for today’s blog, we are going to talk about the hotel room where we stayed for this trip–Park MGM.  It is the newest hotel in Las Vegas.  Park MGM’s design is “inspired by urban parks and gardens, and combines timeless European style with an intimate, modern sensibility.”

Yes, we love the room—simple, clean, urban, cozy  yet with some traditional charms like vintage artworks,  regency mid-high wood table and brass wall scones with white linen lamp shades.

Color Palette of emerald green accents walls with crisp white beddings, adjacent  walls and ceiling  is fresh, relaxing and modern.

And we love this oval wood mid-high regency table in front of the sofa. It is more stylish and functional than the regular low coffee tables since we can also use it as a big writing desk.  When we took shuttle bus to the Market, we chatted with many colleagues and they loved that type of table too.

Monday Inspiration–10 Living Rooms that We can Learn from

Hi, guys,  I hope your new week  started with a positive tune.  As usual, I love to share some rooms that I came across over the weekend.  The reason I share them here is not only because they are beautiful but also they are quite unique with full of good ideas and personality. Often, the rooms that touch our hearts are not the rooms that are highly polished, but rather approachable yet with some surprises.

Love this cream-on-cream neutral color palette. The low-back sectional with performance fabric here is comfy, practical yet chic and stylish. The chandelier hanging over the coffee table here is quite quirky and playful. The blush and orange patterns on the throws add a touch of softness.

I love the contrast between the classical chinoiserie wallpaper with the abstract artwork. Also an IKEA lime color chair truly shows off the master skills of mixing  high and low here.

My Dining-room Makeover

Hi, guys, Happy Saturday!  As usual, I love to work in my garden a little bit earlier in the morning just to refresh my mind and feel good.  My backyard garden looks  so green and lush now.

Beautiful Rooms

Happy Friday!  I have worked on specifying dimmer- able LEDs for the whole week and it  took a lot of time  to communicate back -and- forth with vendors for so many details.  Now I feel I need a break to see some beautiful rooms, rooms that use quite unique color schemes, rooms that are eye candy  for a Friday retreat.  Are you ready?  Here we go:

Love, love, love this color palette: white-on-white, grey and light wood-tones–modern yet classic.

Grey–white-and-black color palette with pop of orange on the vintage console table, piping on the chair make the space edgy yet super sophisticated.

Silver-blue-black color scheme makes this living space very cool and edgy. Yet the velvet and mirror wall , vintage art pieces adds interests, depth and warmth.

A touch of blue and brass with a beautiful view in this light-filled high-rising living room make it inviting, playful and up-scale.

3 Rules for Hanging a Chanerlier

A chandelier can actually hangs in any room to create a mood and to have a drama. And yes, besides just being pretty, there are several rules to hang a chandelier in different rooms. Let’s take a look.

Rule 1: In Dining Room

  1. A handy rule of thumb is that a chandelier should be 12 inches narrower than a table. You should leave 12 inches of space between the outside edge of dining room chandeliers and the outer edge of round tables or the width edge of rectangular tables — as long as you have a table properly sized to the room. For example, a 48-inch-diameter table requires a 24-inch-diameter chandelier. To size chandeliers for large rooms and foyers, add the room’s length and width measurements together to determine the chandelier’s dimension in inches. For example, a room that measures 14 feet by 18 feet requires a 32-inch diameter chandelier.
  2. The bottom of a chandelier over a dining table or kitchen island should hang 30 to 32 inches above the top of the table or kitchen island.

lightd870db6e880fe21d314764bdfb965bf5lighting72fd4ce385075279aa69fa3f004446f7

Rule 2: For 8′ ceiling height room.

Most rooms call for at least 7 feet of space between the bottom of the chandelier and the floor.

Bwhite-living-room-furniture-couches-1506368099

Rule 3: For rooms taller than 9 feet, please consider a two- or three-tier chandelier.

Rule 4: For a two-story foyer, a chandelier would need to hang about 9 feet off the floor, but if your two-story foyer has windows above the ground floor, you should center the chandelier in the windows, so you can see it from the outside. Ensure your ceiling will support the weight of your chandelier wherever you choose to hang it.

How to Choose Leather for Your Furniture

Today we have so many upholstery fabric choices for our furniture.  And often, it is a piece of leather furniture that stays timeless, ages beautifully and tell the story of the home.  But of course, we are not talking about those bulky grandma’s leather couches.  leather upholstery may look its best in a club sofa, or on a very unique occasional chair.

 

Capture-d’écran-2012-04-01-à-15.50.09
Elegant leather occasional chair
e4331b3ec3dab5b247911c53d2ec549b
Relaxing casual tufted library chair

Without question, a piece of good quality leather furniture can instantly enhance your home.

Just in case you are in a process of looking for quality leather upholstery,   here are 6 tips you may find helpful for you to make a decision.

  1. Types of leather: Top-grain and full-grain leathers are the highest quality; they’re made from the outermost layer of the hide, which is the strongest part. Top-grain leather is smoothed to remove imperfections, while full-grain is not smoothed and features a natural grain with imperfections.

2. Finished leathers are practical for active households with children and pets. Finished leathers are more resistant to fading and discoloration when exposed to light, heat, moisture, dust and body oils. These types of leathers also offer the most overall color consistency. Compared to other leather types, finished leathers generally require much lower maintenance, as spills and stains should clean easily unless they penetrate the surface coating of the leather.

3. Aniline-plus leathers are quite simply Aniline leathers plus a slight protective coating. This protective coating may include light pigmentation and/or a clear top coat. Offering similar feels to those of aniline leathers with the added benefit of a protective coating, these leathers are more child and pet friendly than their Aniline counterparts. They may, however, still fade or discolor when exposed to sunlight and temperature extremes.

 

4. Aniline. Pure-aniline or full-aniline leathers show the natural surface of the leather, imperfections and all. They do not have any additional pigments or protectants on the surface, so you’ll probably see variations in color. Because there’s no protective coating, this type of leather has the softest feel. But it’s also more susceptible to scratching, staining and fading.

5 Semi-aniline. Semi-anline or aniline plus pigments have a protective topcoat. There may also be additional pigments added on the surface of the leather, giving the piece a more uniform look. This type of leather is more durable than pure aniline, but not as soft.

6. Nubuck. Nubuck leather is made by buffing or sanding aniline leather. The result is a leather that has a soft, velvety feel and suede-like appearance. It’s stronger than suede (which, remember, is made from split leather), but it’s susceptible to fading and stains and will develop a patina over time. If you can embrace imperfections, this is the softest leather option.
