5 ways for a Successful Room Makeover

 

I like to style the modern house since they often have a clean-line structure and will be easier to add some unique  objects and colors to make the spaces interesting rather dull and boring.  For the recent project we just did,  we approached Client’s  interiors in 5 ways to cope with her busy career and her love of modern interiors.

  1. Declutter those she really doesn’t need and those she will not be inspired or feel pleasant with.
  2. Add some quality pieces such as detail-oriented decorative pillows, one-of-the-kind chandeliers based on the pieces the client already has and no need to get rid of at the current moment. For this project, the pieces that the client would like to keep and also inspire me for designing the rest of the decor are this brown leather swivel chair and Moroccan rug from West Elm.
  3. Re-arrange the current floor plan to make it more open and functional.
  4. Casually add some artwork that sing with the interiors.
  5. Dare to choose bold patterns. For this project, we use houndstooth and stripe pattens to contrast with Moroccan rug pattern and add visual interest to the space.

Please check out before-and-after photos for part of the project.

8 Ways to Style Your Living Room Coffee Table

 

Don’t you agree with me that styling your own coffee table is one of the coolest things to do? Well, first of all, you’ve got chosen what sings to you–fresh flowers, books, boxes, sculptures, some emotional little objects from your grandma …etc. Then, you are able to just sit back and enjoy those lovely things. Just in case  styling is just not your thing, I have 8 tips here on how to style your living room  coffee table.

  1. Make sure you choose a cute coffee table before you style it. That will make your job more pleasant and easy.

2. Always be ready to break the traditional way–instead of just one coffee table, why not have several of them.  Having several coffee tables is a statement for your living room.coffee-table-styling-ideas-03-1507044492

3. Layer up on the height.

4. Try off the center approach like the one in the following image.

5. Do apply some rules once a while like the one in the below—triangle shape for the round coffee table styling.

6.  Using books to divide your coffee table into 3 or 4 sections.

7. Just showcase one collection.

8. Go minimalism like the one in the below. Sometimes, one signature piece tells all.minimalist-living-room-montana-ski-chalet-1-1508263099

7 Ideas for Wall Display and Storage Solutions

Often when my clients did their renovation, one of the challenges they face and would like to solve is to have more storages aesthetically.  After doing so many projects, I find out that vertical walls are actually pretty under-estimated spaces that could leverage and provide the solutions for the most make-over cases.  Here are 7 ideas for wall display and storage that are not only functional but elevate the rooms as well. let’s take a look.

  1. Float a sleek shoe cabinet behind the entry door , so you can organize your shoes neatly and nicely.

A San Gabriel Valley Modern House Living Room Before and After

One of the simple and easy way to refresh your living space is to change your sofa throw pillows. Somehow, piles of pillows with unique design on your sofa always make your living space homy, cozy and elegant. As you know, design is all in the details.  Pillow insert materials, trims, pipings and tassels on pillow design all make a huge difference on the overall looking.

For the project we did in San Gabriel valley, we chose decorative pillows based on the colors and patterns  of  client’s existing Morocan-style rug.

A San Gabriel Modern House—Entry Before and After

Decorating  is usually the final touch to make the room look finished with personality.   In today’s blog, I would like to share one of our recent projects—a San Gabriel Modern House—Entry Before and After.

The client remolded her house not long ago—painted the whole  house, changed the floor and re-did the kitchen. However somehow, the client felt that she might need a professional interior designer help her  put everything together and finish the house. Here are several steps we did to create that chic, modern yet inviting  space.

Entry Before and After

The client used to have a much smaller chest with a  burst mirror hanging  above it at her entry as it showed in the following first  photo.  What we did is to replace that  short and bulky  chest with  a long yet sleek marble-top console to make the whole vignette look modern and more proportional.  Also, we used classic black houndstooth wallpaper to elevate the space.   The muted multi-color artwork and jewel-toned  glass vases are highlights  for the vignette adding touch of elegance and youthfulness to the entry.  The greenery underneath the console makes the space alive.

Last but not least is the proper lighting for the whole entry vignette since there is not that much natural light in this area. We used adjustable LED ceiling  light fixture with warm light to light up the entry.

We also replaced the original cabinets with a bi-folding door and simple shelving system.

Underneath the stair and by the side of entry, we installed a pull-out rack, a bench and an artwork together to form a casual, relaxing yet functional  vignette set.

6 Designer Wall Covering Ideas to Uplift Your Interiors I

If you, just like me, feel a need to reinvent your interiors every couple of years without a big construction work, please re-think about your walls. Here are 5 designer wall covering ideas to change your living space like a magic wander in a second.

  1. Fresh up your walls with a new on- the -trend paint.  You know every year Pantone and other major paint companies will introduce their color of the year. But do you know in order to figure out what is their color of the year, they have to travel thousands of miles, explore different cultures, participate countless trade shows and host many, many brain-storm meetings because everything is connected and color often reflects what people and society think, love and what drive and inspire them. Have you ever had an experience when you wake up in the morning, you are really in the mood for that pink dress or that blue tie. Yes just like that, that particular color of the year from Pantone and other major paint companies make us feel fresh, excited and inspiring in that particular year. What’s more fun is that the color of the year often come with different shades, undertones and paired with unexpected colors.

2. Install bold geometric pattern or elegant wallpaper such as chinossorie  if you are the one who are looking for  some luxury vibes with a high taste.
