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.

Chic yet modern entry featured with houndstooth wallpaper, jewel-toned vases and artwork.

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 Simple Ways to Transform Your Closets

We all have those unflattering closets by the entrance, in the hallway, under the stairway and in the bedroom. Although they don’t look that inspirational, we really need those extra spaces to store away winter blankets,  guest towels, toilet papers, cleaning stuff, maybe our diaries when we were in two grade. I am just joking. But you know what I mean. And often, we don’t want that big construction job to create a lot of chaos and stress. So, today I am going to share 6 simple ways to transform your closets.

  1. Just hang a curtain.   Can you imagine how easy it can be done? Of course, I will recommend to remove those bulky and ugly closet doors in case there are some–they are in the way and don’t look good.  Also, please make sure whatever the curtain or drapery you choose, they should be  stylish and need to be nicely blended in the surroundings.

curtain4.jpg

Just be ladylike.

2. Just paint them over.

3. Use wallpaper on the interior walls,, shelves or just wrapped around the doors.

handy and convenient.

5. Add some light.

6. Install a closet system or just have  some cool closet storage kits to maximize and organize the space.

Installing an organizational system can turn your boring closet (whether it’s a tiny reach-in or a giant walk-in) into something that not only ensures your clothes and accessories are always right where you need them, but something that actually looks great, too. Closet systems can range from ultra-affordable to totally lavish. Click here to read the details.

A hue symbolic of new beginnings, Alabaster (SW 7008), is Sherwin-Williams 2016 Color of the Year. At a time of interconnected commotion and overstimulation, Alabaster offers a sense of personal solace and revival to weary minds. It is the true neutral to set the tone for 2016.

3. REPOSE GRAY SW 7015

Repose Gray SW 7015 a gray/greige that has a slight blue undertone. It’s still a warm gray  but is cooler than several of the grays and greiges in the SW deck.

5 Reasons to Hire an Interior Designer

Although the end users are able to access tremendous home decor products nowadays, one of the challenges they have is how to put everything together beautifully and efficiently based on their personalities and tastes, specially when they are super busy with their own professions. That is why some of our clients approached us lately for design help after making a lot of mistakes by their own.  They finally figure out that hiring an interior designer for their projects  is actually a pretty good deal to help them achieve their goals in a cost-effective way. Here are 5 reasons to hire an interior designer:

  1. Save your money in a big way—avoid many costly  mistakes at the very beginning.
  2. Save your time without any doubt— a designer know how to plan a space professionally and they already has a trained sense of what needs to be done and when it needs to be done, and they’ll be able to anticipate any obstacles that may come up.  Therefore, your whole project will move faster in a streamlined way.
  3. Reduce your stress tremendously— try to do it by yourself, and you’re stuck juggling the many elements that go into the process. For example, it takes a lot of work and energy just to order right things and follow up them through.
  4. Access to  better resources and contacts.  Yes , you can access to tremendous products in the market but you don’t know who are good and who are not.  After browsing one website after another one, you may feel totally lost and confused.  Everyone knows it’s difficult to find good resources. But designers already work in the world of home improvement, so they’re going to have reliable connections that you may need. Hiring a designer will help you easily find an electrician, plumber, and/or contractor that you can trust. Designers also have access to tons of product and fabric that is not available to the general public. With these resources, an interior designer will create a space for you that looks collected and unique.
  5. Yes, you’re going to have wow factor. Interior designers are trained to think creatively and spatially and learn to see an overall picture that clients often cannot. Thinking outside of the box is what designers do on the regular. Not only will you get a good design sense, but you’ll also get an attention to detail from proper lighting and furniture placement to fabric choices and color palette and fixture options. A professional interior designer will create custom-designed pieces to make sure everything fits perfectly and is truly special to your home.   Plus, designers are constantly learn the new colors, new products, new  technologies, new trends which may solve your problems like a magic and yet are not  caught up by the mass market yet.

When we are still embracing all of the shades of Pantone color of the year 2019 –Live Coral, PPG, the paint company with 135 years history just recently introduced its Color of the Year 2020—Chinese Porcelain.  Just by the name, your mind starts to imagine those crisp Chinoiserie blue-and-white.  Yes, it is kind of blueish color, combining rich cobal blue and moody ink blue. It’s calm, elegant, modern, chic.

room-swatch_chinese-porcelain__ppg1160-6
Chinese Porcelain—PPG1160-6

Maybe because summer is here and I immediately fell in love with this color. I feel it is so ease on eyes and have a depth.

“In a world where sleep is viewed as a luxury and the anxiety of a fast-paced world is all too real, it’s only fitting that the color trends for this upcoming year offer escapism in today’s technologically-driven society. Hand-selected by PPG’s global color experts, the PPG paint brand’s 2020 Color of the Year, Chinese Porcelain (PPG1160-6) is a blend of cobalt and moody, ink blue that imparts calmness and restful sleep while also offering the spirit of hopefulness – a commodity in a restless world.”

And  the most important part is that I am so eager to find out how the design talents apply this colors in creative ways.   Let’s start from fashion.
