3 Steps to Float a TV Wall

One of the things I like to do when I design a modern space is to add more layers for depths and architectural interests. Therefore, the space will not look too plain, cold and boring.

For San Gabriel Valley project we did, I added a white TV panel above the client’s existing white TV stand and float about 1″ from the wall, then install LED light behind of the white panel.

Here is the Before:

IMG_7971before.jpg

Here is the After:

afterlivingroom-Globalview-grey-change-1.jpg

So, here are 3 steps we did to achieve the look:

  1. Use 2×4 wood strips to build a frame onto the TV wall. The length and width of the frame are 2″ less than those of the TV white board cover.

    2. Wrap LED tape light around the wood frame.

3. Install the white cover on the top:

The favorite part for me is actually the patio lounge area.  And when we got there, there were not many people. So I can really checked out all of the details.

First of all, I love how they use pink on the floorings and chairs—-such a cheerful color that light up everybody’s mood immediately.

5 Tips on How to Choose Right Light Bulbs

So often, lighting bulbs are what we often ignore. I am wondering if this is mainly because the lighting fixtures always come without bulbs. What really frustrates me sometime is that  vendors couldn’t provide a complete specs sheet  specially for LED  bulbs. Meanwhile,   consumers don’t really think that these light bulbs are that important. But in reality, they are. Just think about it, by just flipping a switch, your mood changes immediately.  Also, with LED starting to dominate the market , it is a little bit complicated to choose right LED bulbs than the traditional lighting bulbs in terms of color temperatures, dimmability and compatible dimmer options.  Today, I am going to share   5 tips to choose right light bulbs.

1. Focus on fixtures and function

Number 1 rule is to  always make sure the shape and base of the bulb fits into your fixtures. Also understand the purpose of lights: general /ambient lighting, task lighting, accent lighting,  entertains lighting …etc.

2. Understand two terminologies: watts and lumens

Every package has codes on it for the amount of lumens and watts the bulb emits. Lumens are the amount of light emitted from a bulb. The more lumens, the brighter the light. Watts are the amount of energy a bulb uses. In general, the lower the watts, the less energy used.

3. Invest in LEDs

Although I mentioned at the very beginning that choosing right LED bulbs can be little bit complicated than traditional lighting bulbs but LEDS are 70 to 90 percent more efficient than traditional light bulb technologies and last more than a decade.  It can be  a few dollars a piece, and you can end up saving $80 or more over the life of each bulb in energy costs versus a comparable incandescent. As designer, what important to me is the great design flexibility provided by LED lighting such as indirect lighting, sculpture lighting , back-lit etc.

4-25.jpg

4. A simple  guide to specify a good LED lighting for residential application

a. Soft white—(2,700k -3,000k)

b. CRI > 90. As a rule, a CRI of 90 or more is considered high and anything below 80 is considered mid-range to low. You can click here to read more

c. Dimmer-ability without flick.

5. Think smart lighting.  If you have different layers of lighting  and more than 5 lighting fixtures in your home, wouldn’t be nice you can just turn on lights without extra hardwares with an ease.  Smart lighting bulbs have a sensor on them and usually require a hub setup. I will talk about this more in a separate blog.

If you are like me and have some hard time to find good chanderlier bulbs, here are my recommendations:

In case you want to get to know a little bit about smart lighting system, here is Lutron’s Caseta bridge system.

A Brief Guide for Choosing your countertops—Natural Stone

There are several big decisions if you are planning  to renovate your kitchen. One of them is how to choose the proper materials for your kitchen countertops.  Two categories of materials are very popular in today’s kitchen remodeling market—natural stones and engineered materials.  Today, I am going to talk about the natural stone countertops.

50% of my clients really love the organic looks and elegant veins of natural stones.The popular natural stones in kitchen & bath applications include granite, marble, quartzite.

Granite

granite.png

Granite still stays very strong in the market demand.  Granite has following features:

  1. Moh’s scale 6-7.  Moh’s scale is used to measure the relative hardness of a mineral by its resistance to scratching. From softest to hardest, the ten minerals of the Mohs scale are talc (measuring 1 on the scale), gypsum, calcite, fluorite, apatite, orthoclase, quartz, topaz, corundum, and diamond (measuring 10 on the scale).
  2. Natural materials;
  3. High heat, scratch, etch and stain resistance;
  4. Minimal maintenance, mild soap and warm water to clean;
  5. Polished and textured or honed finishes;
  6. Excellent for kitchen and bath applications;
  7. Outdoor applications. Be careful for the dark-color granite. They can become really hot if  exposed in high heat for a very long time. We usually recommend clients to use covers.

Marble 

Marble countertops, specially Carrara marble,  are extremely popular in the west coast thanks to its natural and elegant veins.

white-marble-varieties.jpg

Marble is a metamorphic stone found in mountainous regions of North America, South America, Asia, and Europe—from Colorado to Brazil and Italy. It’s created by the physical or chemical alteration of sediment into a denser form through heat and/or pressure. The resulting rock has a crystalline nature enabling it to take a polish. It also has veins of mineral deposits that pattern it, no two slabs are exactly alike. Marble has following features:

  1. Moh’s scale 3-4;
  2. natural materials;
  3. Heat resistant.
  4. Less Scratch, etch and stain resistance than Granite, quartzite and engineered quartz;
  5. Mild soap and warm water to clean;
  6. Polished and textured finishes;
  7. Acceptable for kitchen and bath applications. 
  8. Not for out-door application.

Quartzite

quartzite-countertop-crush.jpgQuartzite is a very hard metamorphic rock that originated as sandstone. … Quartzite is ideal for any countertop surface due to its strength and long-lasting composition. some of quartzite features include:

1. Moh’s Scale 7( harder than Granite);

2.Natural material;

3.High heat, scratch, etch and stain resistance;

4Mild soap and warm water to clean;

5. Polished and textured finishes;

6. Excellent for kitchen and bath application;

7.Acceptable for outdoor applications.

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.

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.

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.

5 Tips to Choose Right Paint Finishes

In my recent posts, I talked a lot about paint colors, but choosing the right finishes is equally important to reach the goal.  Often different paint companies have different terms for their finishes. So, it might be confused and a little bit intiminated when you  have to choose your  paint colors.  So, today I will share Here  5 tips to make the process easier:

  1. Understand the sheens: first of all, please don’t worry that you have to choose at least dozens of sheens from different brands .   Most brands of paint come in several sheens, and both latex and oil-based paints are available in different sheen levels. Gloss sheens have the highest light-reflective characteristics. Next are semigloss sheens; then satin, eggshell, or low-lustre sheens; and then flat or matte sheens.  So, general speaking, here are basic 6 sheens : flat, matte, satin, eggshell, semi-gloss and high-gloss.  The lower the sheen, typically means the lower the cost per gallon. Since homes tend to have multiple bedrooms to paint, you can actually save a few bucks by choosing flat or matte paint for these rooms.

2. Decide finishes by how busy the traffic is in those spaces: rule of the thumb here is the higher the sheen, the higher the shine — and the higher the shine, the more durable it will be and the easier it can cleaned.  Flat paint has no shine; high-gloss is all shine. In between are eggshell, satin, and semi-gloss, each with its own practical and decorative job to do.  So I guess you get it, high gloss will be perfect for kitchen & bath  areas.

High Gloss

  • Practical application: kitchens, door, and window trim
  • Durability: very high

high-gloss-interior-paint-Oakland-1-edited.jpg

Semi-Gloss

Good for rooms where moisture, drips, and grease stains challenge walls. Also great for trim work that takes a lot of abuse.

  • Practical application: kitchens, bathrooms, trim, chair rails
  • Durability: high

SEMI-GLOSS3f52065a58bad1a873e87555e50d36c2.jpg

Satin

Has a yummy luster that, despite the name, is often described as velvety. It’s easy to clean, making it excellent for high-traffic areas. Its biggest flaw is it reveals application flaws, such as roller or brush strokes. Touch-ups later can be tricky.

  • Practical application: family rooms, foyers, hallways, kids’ bedrooms
  • Durability: high

satin1400959698646SATIN1

Eggshell

Between satin and flat on the sheen (and durability) scale is eggshell, so named because it’s essentially a flat (no-shine) finish with little luster, like a chicken’s egg. Eggshell covers wall imperfections well and is a great finish for gathering spaces that don’t get a lot of bumps and scuffs.

  • Practical application: dining rooms, living rooms
  • Durability: medium

EGGAll+white+satin+and+eggshell+finish+painted+hallway+walls.jpg

Flat or Matte

fFat/matte soaks up, rather than reflects, light. It has the most pigment and will provide the most coverage, which translates to time and money savings. However, it’s tough to clean without taking paint off with the grime.

  • Practical application: adults’ bedrooms and other interior rooms that won’t be roughed up by kids
  • Durability: medium-low

flat-paint-on-walls-how-to-rolling-flat-matte-wall-paint-best-results-search-flat-white-paint-walls-flat-paint-for-garage-walls.jpg

 

3. Decide finishes by the conditions of the walls.

 Glossy sheen will highlight any imperfections in the surface. Allocate yourself time to deep clean the wall, spackle any holes, and let the surface fully dry.

Eggshell is great for spaces that are lived-in but not quite as exposed to the messes and moisture frequently found in kitchens and bathrooms.

Satin hey’re also excellent at resisting mildew, dirt and stains (they can better withstand cleaning and light scrubbing) making them more suitable for frequently used spaces than their eggshell counterparts. Try this finish in hallways, children’s rooms and on woodwork that will need to withstand modest wear and tear.

Flat and Matte- great for hiding surface imperfections making walls look smooth. This finish, which cleans easily with a damp sponge.

4. Decide finishes by aesthetic:

 The higher the sheen, the more vivid and rich your color will appear, making it ideal for deep, jewel-toned colors such as reds, forest greens and navy blues. Experts are partial to this finish for wood surfaces, such as trim, cabinets and doors, but only when blemishes are minimal as shinier surfaces make flaws more evident.

5. Open to the new technologies: there are new paints with new technologies.  For example, Benjamin Moore just develops new matte finish which can be used in bathroom and super durable and easy to clean.

3 Rules for Hanging a Chanerlier

A chandelier can actually hangs in any room to create a mood and to have a drama. And yes, besides just being pretty, there are several rules to hang a chandelier in different rooms. Let’s take a look.

Rule 1: In Dining Room

  1. A handy rule of thumb is that a chandelier should be 12 inches narrower than a table. You should leave 12 inches of space between the outside edge of dining room chandeliers and the outer edge of round tables or the width edge of rectangular tables — as long as you have a table properly sized to the room. For example, a 48-inch-diameter table requires a 24-inch-diameter chandelier. To size chandeliers for large rooms and foyers, add the room’s length and width measurements together to determine the chandelier’s dimension in inches. For example, a room that measures 14 feet by 18 feet requires a 32-inch diameter chandelier.
  2. The bottom of a chandelier over a dining table or kitchen island should hang 30 to 32 inches above the top of the table or kitchen island.

lightd870db6e880fe21d314764bdfb965bf5lighting72fd4ce385075279aa69fa3f004446f7

Rule 2: For 8′ ceiling height room.

Most rooms call for at least 7 feet of space between the bottom of the chandelier and the floor.

Bwhite-living-room-furniture-couches-1506368099

Rule 3: For rooms taller than 9 feet, please consider a two- or three-tier chandelier.

Rule 4: For a two-story foyer, a chandelier would need to hang about 9 feet off the floor, but if your two-story foyer has windows above the ground floor, you should center the chandelier in the windows, so you can see it from the outside. Ensure your ceiling will support the weight of your chandelier wherever you choose to hang it.

Rule 5: By knowing all the rules above and dare to break them once a while to create a little personality and drama. At the end of the day, it is your home.
