Project Reveal—A Spring Refreshing For A Family Room

Spring is about a new beginning . Just think about how we feel when we see the spring blooms in nature after a long cold winter. We feel exciting, happy and cheerful! So, it is the time to bring in that excitment to our home to boost our mood and enhance our life style, specially after we have been experiencing such a long long pandemic and home is truely our ultimate sanctuary. Today we are going to reveal how we refresh a rather all-neutral family room.

Although this is a luxury tone-on-tone family room featuring silk drapes, high-end velvet custom extra long sofa and a wool area rug, we feel the room needs some love and excitement. What we did is to add geometric and floral pillows to give this all brownish space a zest. Green on the pillows echoes the greenery in the garden outside and bring in a piece of nature indoor. This family room has a traditional vibe. The custom sofa has a classical camel back. So, the geometric pattern on the pillows modernizes the space. The black-and-whte sculptures on the coffee table further emphasize the modernity of the space. We paired the geometric pillows with the floral pillows. That way, our eye will not feel tired. Plus, who wouldn’t want to have a piece of spring garden indoor? The pink bowl on the coffee table has an organic form and picks up the pink color on the floral pillow . Pink also gives this all-neutral space a soft pop of color.

As for the coffee table, we chose this modern classical honey wood table with the elegant light champagne metal tapered legs. We love the two-tier table configuration. It is not only functionl but also add a visual interest to the room. It elevates family room with a touch of glam. We love the craftsmanshipand the details on this coffee table.

Tour An Urban Chicago Home With A Touch Of Sophistication

We have developed an appetite for tone-on-tone neutral palettes in the past year. We firmly believe that all these neutrals help create a soothing and relaxing home—the ultimate sanctuary for most of us under the current situation. We find out that if we do it right, the tone-on-tone color scheme will make home interiors high style and timeless. The challenge is often on how to create a monochromatic home that has a depth, dimensions and warmth. We came across this urban Chicago home and fell in love with its aesthetic. Yes, it has varied shades of grays and subtle pops of jewel tones— a perfect case study for a monochromatic home that is fresh, clean, modern yet elegant and sophiticated.

Entry

The entry is painted in Benjamin Moore’s Cape May Cobblestone which sets the tone of a crisp, monochromatic palette for the rest of the home. The gray leather on the seats add textures while the dark brown wood flooring evokes a warm feeling. The brass details on the console lamp and the mirror above elevate the entry with a touch of glam. And of course, the loose floral arrangement enlivens the space. You can click here for more ideas on entry design.

Tour A Southampton Escape Inspired By Cosmo With A Constraint Of Palette

We have actually developed an appetite for the tonal neutral interiors as we have been going through the whole pandemic thing since last year, particularly those interiors with a lot of natural light. Those homes are truly heavenly sanctuaries that allow us to wind down, relax and rejuvenate. So, when we came across landscaping architect Perry Guillot’s Southampton escape on AD, we feel the similar verve and fell in love with this serene escape–a playhouse with a garden that is inspired by nothing short of cosmos and has tonal white stucco walls. Guillot is known for the artfully restrained gardens he has created for such clients as Tory Burch, Aerin Lauder, and Reed and Delphine Krakoff. 

Overview

The clipped hollies embrace the main entrance of the playhouse. It looks like the sky is on the earth.

We love how the lush textured sprawling plants contrast with the clean-lined white house.

6 Outdoor Living Space Ideas We Love

Guys, TGIF! In case you are planning your outdoor space just as most of us do in spring time, here are 6 outdoor living space ideas we love. So, for your Friday inspiration, please enjoy!

  1. We were never a big fan of white tablecloths until now, specially a really good-quality linen and cotton ones. Somehow, the white tablecloths once are put on the table , they will magically change any space to an oasis with a casual, relaxing, quiet yet super elegant atmosphere. We even more like those that are puddling on the ground. We just feel the fabrics can really soften the outdoor spaces. So, the more the better.

Thread Network—A New Way To connect With Apple HomeKit For Your Home Automation DIY Project

When Apple first introduced the HomePod Mini during their keynote, they did not mention it was a Thread Border Router. This is possibly the future of smart home device connectivity. The HomePod Mini is the starting point of a Thread mesh network because it is a Thread Border Router and it is automatic and does not need any configuration or setup.

Thread is a new low energy mesh network protocol standard for smart home devices. Thread enabled smart home devices inter-connect to each other to form a mesh network so there are no central hub to relay data. A thread network starts with at least one or more border routers (sometimes called edge routers). The best border router to use for HomeKit home automation is the HomePod Mini which is very easy to set up because it automatically works when you connect to your wifi and login with your Apple ID.  You can have as many HomePod Mini as desired such as having one in each room. They will all route and connect to Thread enabled devices. Each Thread device can connect to each other and extend the Thread mesh network.

Advantages of using Thread in your HomeKit automation:

*Network is decentralized and non-hierarchical.

*Self organizing and self configuring.

*Can add one or more border router (HomePod Mini).

*Full Enabled Thread devices can extend to the network by connecting to each other.

*No single point of failure (as long there are more than one border router (HomePod Mini)).


*The network is self-healing. Should one device fail, connected device will switch connection to another device so data can continue to routed.

*High level of security.

*Low energy so battery device (Minimal Thread Device) can connect without draining battery.

*IP6 based.

*Open industry standard.

Start by adding one or more HomePod Mini to your home WiFi. These HomePod Mini will act as border router for your Thread Network and other Thread enable devices can connect to the HomePod Mini. This happens automatically. You simply use the Home app on your iPhone or iPad to scan the HomeKit device to add to your HomeKit network. It will automatically connect to a HomePod Mini or another Thread device that is connected to the Thread network.

The Thread protocol is new so there are only a few Thread enable devices on the market so far but more are expected to be announced or some current devices may be Thread enabled with a firmware update.

The Eve Energy smart plug is a fully enabled Thread device because it is plug into a socket and is on all the time so it can connect to other Thread devices to extend the network. It is a good idea to add some these to build up the Thread mesh network. Plug in some lamps, fans, and other non-smart device into the Eve Energy to make them smart.

There are two type of Thread devices. There are Full Thread Devices and Minimal Thread Devices. Full Thread Devices allows other thread enabled devices to connect to them. Full Thread Devices act as router and extends the Thread mesh network. These devices are always on. The more of these device on the network, the more extended and robust the network becomes.  Minimal Thread Devices are generally battery powered devices and can connect to Full Thread Devices or Thread Border Router (such as a HomePod Mini), but other Thread devices cannot connect to them thus Minimal Thread Devices do not extend the network. For example, Eve Weather is a Minimal Thread Device and is battery operated while the Eve Energy is a Full Thread Device and can route data from other Thread enabled devices connected to them.
