Tour a Collector’s Airy, Light yet Inimitable London Dwelling

As we have being experienced the on-going pandemic, we often ask ourselves a question, what colors or color schemes really reflect our current mood and inspire us to live better , happier and enjoy every moment. We have blogged the new color trends and colors of the year 2021 in our recent posts. But we do believe that we are all different and react color differently. Some of us may need a super bright color scheme to push through this strange time while others just need some muted neutrals to calm down and feel anchored. Today, we are going to tour a collector’s London apartment which incorporates both worlds of the soothing neutrals to create a gallery atmosphere and of rich dark color schemes for a cozy and intimate feel. Here are some of our favorites:

What’s more interesting is the way how today’s modern farm houses mix and match different styles to make the spaces timeless.

Today we will take you to tour a modern farm house in Arizona. We love the overall vibe of this house—bright, clean, crisp, stream-lined yet warm, grounded and livable.  Here are the highlights of our favorite spaces.

Laguna Contemporary House Tour by Paul McClean

We were recently invited to a private party to take a home  tour at one of Paul McClean’s latest contemporary projects at Laguna Beach. It was a beautiful sunny day in the valley and by the beach, there was a little bit marine layers, wrapping the whole beach town in a romantic sheer. And you can see in the following video, the neighborhood is kind of lay-back cottage beach house style which really makes Paul McClean designed home stand out. Ireland-born architect Paul McClean has become somewhat synonymous with the high-end housing boom in Los Angeles. He designed homes for celebrities and high-net-worth buyers that include Calvin Klein, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and the Winklevoss twins — famous for suing Mark Zuckerberg. He likes to play light, air and water for his projects to create very Zen-like atmosphere.

Here are some high-lights that we really like in this contemporary house at Laguna Beach.

Sunday Style—a Little Road trip to DTLA

Industrial style is still going pretty strong in Los Angeles–concrete, gray-white-black color palette, organic forms and casual vibes, …etc.   A lot of objects and furnishings are mainly from local artists.  So, they are very detail-oriented. This weekend, we were invited by a loft showroom opening.  Please take a tour with me.

Coastal Maximalism

Every time when people talk about California coastal interiors, it is always kind of either white, cream or blueish color palettes with signature California lay-back vibes. But not for this one.  It is located right at Corona Del Mar , So Cal and has a perfect polished modern classical style with maximalism in mind. The home is owned by Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson, the co-founders of the California-based cosmetics brand Too Faced. Then, I guess you expect some big wows!

 

Interior designer Mary MacDonald create such wonderful color palettes for each room:

Feminine hot pink pops up from cream, white and grey background with masculine architectural elements.

Tuesday House Tour— Fashion Designer, Ralph Lauren’s Home and Office

It’s Tuesday house tour time.  We will take a look  inside designer Ralph Lauren’s  Bedford, New York house, Colorado ranch, and Manhattan office.  Lauren is the first fashion designer to offer a comprehensive home-furnishings line, which he crafts around themed lifestyle collections.

At Lauren’s residence in Bedford, New York, a 19th-century Dutch chandelier presides over the entrance hall.  Love the airy and sophisticated vibes at the entry.

ralph-lauren-homes-11.jpg
In the living room, matching 19th-century Louis XV–style wing chairs flank an 18th-century Chinese carved low table; pillows made from antique textiles accent the sofa, and the throw in the foreground is a 19th-century Kashmiri paisley.   The space is full collection of  art, hand-crafted objects, fine home goods…

ralph-lauren-homes-5.jpg
Ralph Lauren Home fabrics cover the sofa and pillows in the poolhouse, which features 16th-century Belgian pine ceiling beams and a 17th-century French limestone mantel; the lamps are made from 18th-century Chinese vessels.  I love the open and tranquil feel in this room.  And of course, blue-and-whites.

ralph-lauren-homes-2.jpg
The breakfast room’s tableware is by Ralph Lauren Home, as are the fabrics used for the tablecloth and the cushions on the 19th-century English armchairs; the painting is 17th-century Dutch.  This is one of my rooms.  I always have a thing with layered table-cloth—it’s elegant, relaxing and fun.

ralph-lauren-homes-6.jpg
A vintage French bistro mirror hangs above the antique pedestal sink in the poolhouse bath.  Love this vintage mirror with a clean–line modern flair.

ralph-lauren-homes-4.jpg
A circa-1774 portrait by Pompeo Girolamo Batoni is displayed between the library’s French doors, which are curtained with a Ralph Lauren Home velvet; the two-arm Argand lamp is 19th century, and the pillows are made of antique fabrics.  This is truly Lauren’s signature style—dark and rich color palettes, brass elements, wood panelings, checkered fabric…
