Importance of Indoor Air Quality

We spent approximately 90% of our time indoor. With practicing social distancing, quarantine, isolation or shelter-in strategies now during COV-19 pandemic , we even spend more time at home.  Indoor quality plays even more important role for our health since allergies, asthma, lung cancer and heart problems have all been linked to poor air quality. And The EPA has ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers.

Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the area. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

Pollutant Sources

There are many sources of indoor air pollution. These can include:

  • Fuel-buring combustion appliances
  • Tobacco products
  • Building materials and furnishings as diverse as:
    • Deteriorated asbestos-containing insulation
    • Newly installed flooring, upholstery or carpet
    • Cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products
  • Products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies
  • Central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices
  • Excess moisture

According to the NAFA (National Air Filtration Association) 95-98% of indoor air is made up of particles smaller than one micron. Bacteria, smoke, viruses, and lung damaging dust all fit into this category.    The filter you have in your home is designed to protect your heating and cooling system between its annual check-up and cleanings. It is NOT designed to protect you and your family. These filters don’t even keep your system clean much less filter out the other contaminants in your air. Trying to catch airborne particles that are harmful to humans with a standard filter is like using a tennis racket to kill mosquitoes. You may get a few bugs, but it’s pure luck when you do.   So having an extra air filters is one of the ways to enhance indoor air quality.  So how to choose a good quality air filter?

Most consumers have heard the acronym HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters in advertisements from manufactures of vacuum cleaners and air purifier products. But it’s easy to be confused and gloss over the fine print.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) technical standard specification for HEPA filters used by DOE contractors defines a HEPA as the filter shall exhibit a minimum efficiency of 99.97% at a test aerosol diameter of 0.3 micrometers (μm) in diameter from the air that passes through the filter.

Pay special attention to the last sentence because it is the numbers 99.97% and 0.3-micrometer that tell the only story that matters when it comes to home air purification. There are manufacturers use True HEPA (which captures up to 99.975% of airborn particles measuring 0.3 micrometers (μm) in diameter that pass through the filter) to different them from other manutacturers who use the term “True HEPA” are doing so because there are several misleading terms used by others such as “HEPA-type,” “HEPA-like,” HEPA-style,” or “99% HEPA.” “These would represent filter-based systems that do not satisfy the HEPA standard or may not have been independently tested.

That being said, let’s just summerize what we just talked about above, there are 3 criteria to choose a good quality air filter:

1.  Looking for True HEPA labels.

2. Pay attention to the description such as “captures up to 99.975% of airborne particles measuring 0.3 micrometers (μm) in diameter that pass through the filter”

3. Design is important–looking for a modern, minimalism design which will either blend in your interiors or at least will not stand out and pleasant to look at.

We came across this glamorous house and  fell in love with the interiors immediately. Why?  Because the interiors are  airy, bright , clean-lined yet still have right doses of sophistication  and classical elements.  The home feels livable,  and not over-stuffed.  So, that being said, let’s take a look together.

Classical Black-and-White Checkered Marble Flooring at the entrance really excites our eye and breaks away from the all  hardwood flooring, which injectc freshness, high-style and interests to the home.

With Spring  approaching, we are more obsessed to light and airy home interiors. And what really made us want to talk about today’s home(located at Park Ave.), besides its lightness, is its way to masterfully bring past and present together with the charm of East Coast sophistication.

This  Park Avenue abode gets an airy update by American renowned interior design firm Kemble Interiors. Celerie Kemble, the founder of  Kemble Interiors, is well known for her signature style of whimsy and color. And we will say her style also embraces maximal-ism since she is very detail-oriented in a classical way. But when she took the project with her design partner, they really listened and  incorporated  client’s minimalism aesthetic in the design and created this  whimsical  modern chic East Coast home. Let’s take look at this home together:

  1. Airy Color Palette: white-on-white wall paints with modernized classical chinoisorie and striped wallpaper treatments on the accent walls.

Park-Avenue-Traditional-Apartment-Living-Room
The wall paints, the furniture, the lamp shades and flooring are in a harmonious elegant light color palette of white,  cream, blush  and light brown while the brass on the lighting fixtures and coffee tables  add touch of glamor.  Greenery and fresh flower arrangements make this living space alive.  The colors in furnishings of this living room actually were pulled out from a modernized chinoiserie wallpaper on a accent wall.  What we want to mention here is the modern classical chandelier hanging over the living room ceiling, if this is a west coast home, this light fixture might go super minimalism style.  This is where we see the decor difference between East Coast and West Coast.

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.

5 Ways to Transform your Home with Beautiful Rugs

The weather drops so low in LA today. And this is just reminding us that winter is still here. Well, you might already take away all of your holiday decor that made your home cozy and warm. There is one magical item that you really should still keep it around. Yes, rug, please. As matter of the fact, you should keep several of rugs in your home–runner for your kitchen and hallway, a large area statement area rug for your living room, a faux fur rug for your relaxing corner and rug-on-rug-on-rug style to bring in  pattern, color and  some casual bohemian vibes.  In the following, we will talk about how different style of rugs can transform and elevate your home in a second.

  1. A touch of coziness.corner

For this newly designed project we just did recently, we throw a cream faux fur rug under a clean-lined modernized classical gilded chair to make the corner of this all-white room warm, cozy, inviting and romantic.

img_2688-1

For the study room project we did several years ago, we also had this faux fur rug by the window seat to create that a cozy and relaxing zone in the study.

2. A wow factor statement.

For this entry we did several years ago in Walnut, we used an emerald green silky rug with geometric lines to eco the circle design at the edge of the entry table.

This is the entry for one of our holiday show-houses a couple of year ago. We love this large floral pattern rug at the entry to wow the guest.

3. To keep cohesive through rooms and holistic decor.

We did this modern house project last year. We actually keep the client’s Moroccan style rug and start to curate the whole house decor based on the color palette on the rug.

4. Add a  touch of whimsical and interest by stacking different rugs together casually.

For this new project we just did, we actually stack two rugs together to have that extra coziness.

We are really obsessed with layering different rugs together to create visual interest.

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.

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
