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

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:

As part of signature 18th century colonial colors, this Prussian Blue truly lighted up my Monday.

This morning, I came across the blog by Quintessence —At Home in Colonial Williamsburg with Anthony Baratta.

The brass sculptures of tea drinking Chinese men, named “Hyson” and “Bohea” were inspired by 18th-century tea accoutrements held by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, for Chinese teas were popular in 18th-century Virginia. The historical impact of tea cannot be understated. British demand for tea wares sparked the Industrial Revolution, and a British tax on tea led to the American Revolution. Colonial Williamsburg’s bountiful collections of 18th-century tea wares – made to accommodate the new social ceremony?which are designed with a “Trend Meets Tradition” approach that keeps them fresh. The English have been smitten with Asian goods and designs “in the Chinese taste” since Catherine of Braganza brought a dowry of Asian trade routes to her marriage to King Charles II of England in 1662. The WILLIAMSBURG “Bohea” and Hyson” sculptures were motivated by a print in the Colony. Get the Price

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.
