7 Ways to Incorporate Antiques to Interiors

Antiques can add depth, personality and timelessness to any interiors. There are 7 ways to incorporate antique to your spaces.

1. Start small.

This small ornate antique mirror is very interesting and whimsical and has a nice contrast with the contemporary wall paneling.

Monday Blue–an Elegant Home from East Coast

As we all know it is not easy to start Monday in a cheerful mood. My strategy is to go in to dig in as much  beautiful interiors as I can. And there is one home that is truly light up my mood—Elle Decor’s International Design Editor Cynthia Frank’s Manhattan Home—its truly Parisian get-away in New York—elegant,. feminine and super cozy. In the sea of middle-century modern , coastal and farm-house  styles in Los Angeles, I immediately become obsessed with this sophisticated style. Let’s take a look together:

  1. The Prussia Blue that set the elegant Parisian tone of the whole house:edc120119frank-001-1572896548.jpg
edc120119frank-005-1572896495.jpg
The neutral white wall color provide such a  nice backdrop for the beautiful velvet furniture while Leopard rug is chic and modern.

2.  A super glamorous dining room we will die for:

edc120119frank-011-1572896617.jpg
A Sneak Peek of the elegant dining room–love the gilded trims on the door, the classical chandelier, the white table-cloth, the candles,  and of course the hot pink fresh flowers as the center-piece.
edc120119frank-010-1572896761.jpg
Love how she paired the rich jewel-tone dinner plates with clear crystals—very classic.

 

3. A feminie bedroom:

Love the soothing color palette in this bedroom and the floral pattern on those French Louis XVI chairs.

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.

The video above is showing the lovely neighborhood.

And here is the entrance–very Zen-like.

And of course we know that fall is coming although we are still embracing 90 degree hot weather here in Los Angeles. So far, our mood is adding some saturated jewel tone while still keeping the overall color palette cool with highlights of different shades of blue and crisp white.

5 Questions to Ask When You Decide Tile over Tile?

I get you. It is going to be a really big mess if you decide to demolish the original tile flooring.  And you might  do some research work and find out that it is possible to install tile over tile. Well, based on the guideline of ANSI A108 — the Installation Standard Specification for Ceramic Tile, the  general requirements for tile installations, A108.02 4.1.1 states:

“All surfaces shall be structurally sound, clean, dry and free of oily or waxy films and all foreign matter.  Concrete surfaces shall be free of form oil, curing compound laitance, and cracks.”

That  said, there are still conditions that you are able install tile over tile, but here are 5 questions you need to answer before you take this strategy:

  • Did the old installation fail?
  • If so, what was the cause of failure?
  • Was it an installation or structural problem?
  • If it was properly installed, is the membrane still well adhered and able to perform its job to support the new installation?
  • Did it survive the demolition process intact?

A Kitchen Event

When we  just came back KBIS a week ago, we were really blown away by some of the innovations in the show.  After all, the kitchen is the fastest growing sections among the whole home improvement industry.  We always see some of the coolest things in kitchen from pro cooking appliances, range hoods, to refrigerators, faucets, countertop, smart technologies, lightings, etc…   Although  I am still working on the blog of KBIS 2019 (hope soon I can publish it), we were invited   to a  local trade kitchen showroom industry event several days ago, and actually were  able to see  some newer trends and technologies in the showroom that resonate what we saw from KBIS2019.   This kitchen showroom is not that big but quite modern, neat and sleek even with a luxury walk-in closet and some cool technologies.   Ladies, who doesn’t love a stylish, open and airy walk-in closet with a lot of bells and whistles?!!! And last but not the least, we had professional chefs working in the kitchen and making some yummy gourmet foods.  Here are some of our wonderful moments from this beautiful night!

 

IMG_5124.jpg
Fresh flowers always make guests feel so welcoming!  I just love these saturated colors! They create a cheerful mood and beautiful moments.  It is always such a good idea to have some fresh plants and flowers in kitchens.  They make everyone happy and enhance the appetites!

Here comes our pro chef!  One of the things when we cook at home is that  we can always use fresh veggies and other ingredients…

 

IMG_5078.2019-03-04 10_24_19.gif
Yummy and beautiful!
IMG_5080.jpg
The kitchen is quite modern and sleek. Yet I like how the showroom styled the food with wood trays –very organic, warm and welcoming ..

 

IMG_5079.jpg
Pretty and organic!

 

Here are some cool things in the kitchen area:

Touch-to-open sliding cabinet door! How cool it is! specially when you have a tight space, this type of doors can be a great idea!
IMG_5114.2019-03-04 09_57_28.gif
Miele Coffee machine—How neat it is! The coffee station incorporating  a compact coffee machine in the kitchen is quite trendy in 2019.  It’s convenient and very handy.  Who wouldn’t love the coffee aroma in the earlier morning in our own kitchens?
IMG_5111.jpg
Here is my espresso just made from Miele coffee machine!

IMG_5075.2019-03-04 10_14_07.gif
Yummy and pretty!

 

Well, after being through all of those  above kitchen experiences, I think everyone just cannot wait to create a pretty live-in kitchen for ourselves or host a family/friends get-tother event soon in the already-pretty kitchens.  After all, it is a life style!

Ok, let’s continue our beautiful evening by walking to the rear of the showroom.  Wow,  here is the large walk-in closet:

Love the central island and above chandelier and of course the lovely tufted leather bench.

What a nice touch to be able to see your jewelries on the top island surface.
