The Magical Power of Textiles at Home

What makes a house home often is the coziness and warmth that we are feeling. Mid-century modern and stark minimalism have dominated our home furnishing market for a long, long time. When we pay attention to the details of these styles, the interiors usually ,from floor to ceiling, to walls ,  most of furniture are often hard-surfaced. They inevitably give us a very cold feeling. All of the hard-surface can hardly absorb the sounds. But textiles just do the opposite. So if we would like to create a soothing and quiet home, make sure you use different textile applications for our home. Today, we are going to talk about  7 benefits of using textiles at home.

1. They bring in fresh colors, textures and patterns. By doing so, they give depth, dimension and interest to any space. They simply make us feel excited.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day. We tried backyard picnic, backyard cocktails, backyard BBQ and ShabyShabu.

7 Ways to Design Wellness at Home I

With most of us staying at home over 7 weeks, we more and more realize how important our home is to us, specially a healthy home. By this coming Friday, some businesses in California will be re-open. But we know it will take a while to go back the normal. And  one of the facts of the new normal is that we will  still have to  spend more time at home. That being said, it may be a good idea to think a little bit deeper on how to create a home environment that makes us feel relaxing, soothing, comfortable and healthy.  Rooms that inspire wellness create more comfortable and livable space for our daily routines.  So, a  healthy home is the foundation for a healthy life.

From today, we are going to talk 7ways to design wellness at home

The subtle gold wall-covering elevates and lights up a narrow hallway . A fresh orange flower arrangement adds a dose of excitement. We love the view in the hallway that is able to see a very elegant drapery on the landing area of the stairs , which hints a sophisticated taste for the rest of the home.

The almost monogram of color of green creates such an elegant, soothing and luxurious feel while the mustard lounge chair, bright yellow flowers and pink on the artwork truly spice up this lovely living room.  A neutral nature are rug ground the whole space and let the eye take a break from all of the greens here.  The mood here is quiet yet cheerful—a kind of feeling we are all desperate to create for our home.

4 Tips on How to Stock Up Food in a Healthy Way

Everyone is probably busy with stocking up food and  grocery essentials. Just a curtsy reminder that when you stock up these supplies, please consider other people need to stock up theirs too. So be kind and thoughtful  specially at this crisis moment.

Just share some tips how we stock up our food.

1. Choose something healthy.   Those nutrients-dense food will provide us necessary vitamins, minerals, etc and help us enhance your immune system

1IMG_3159

We love millet and it is one of the healthiest staples to replace wheat or grains since it is gluten-free and grain-free. A cup of cooked millet contains about 207 calories with over 6 grams of protein, 2 grams of dietary fiber, and less than 2 grams of fat. It is rich in minerals like calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and selenium as well as essential vitamins like folate, pantothenic acid, niacin, riboflavin, and Vitamins B6, C, E, and K. Click here to learn more

2.  Have plenty fresh greens and vegetables.

1IMG_3173

 

1IMG_3058

We always get plenty of cruciferous vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables  are vegetables of the family Brassicaceae (also called Cruciferae) with many genera, species, and cultivars being raised for food production such as cauliflower, cabbage, kale, garden cress, bok choy.  

Most cruciferous veggies are rich in vitamins and minerals such as folate and vitamin K. Dark green cruciferous veggies also are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. They’re also rich in phytonutrients — plant-based compounds that may help to lower inflammation and reduce the risk of developing cancer.  Click here to learn more about cruciferous veggies’ benefits and recipe.

3. Make sure you have enough   Omega-3 fatty acid intakes.  Omega-3 (n-3) essential fatty acids are extremely healthy, and they should be an important part of your everyday diet.

Unlike other fatty acids, omega-3s are essential fatty acids, meaning that your body does not produce them on its own. You need to get them from your diet. This should be a priority because omega-3s can. Click here to read more

1IMG_31251IMG_3088

Canned sardine, canned wild-caught tuna and salmon are all great sources for your omega-3 fatty acids.  Based on several researches, canned sardine and tuna still keep all of the nutrients pretty well. And we often purchase canned fish with Safe Catch label( see the label in the above photo). Safe Catch tests every fish for mercury. Sustainably wild caught. Cooked to retain all nutrients and flavor.

Easter is a time for bunnies,  eggs,  blossoms, color, celebration and a chance to refresh and welcome spring.   This year, Easter falls on Sunday, April 12. And you still have time to  plan the pieces to display for your Easter setting and tables-cape.

easter-1easter-2

From bunny themed dinnerware, flatware, to adorable treats, cake-stands,  glass figurines, pastels, bight colors, and luxurious fabric, today we are going to share 6 ideas to bright up your Monday.

  1. Pastels—the mood is soft, tranquil and inviting.

Because Easter occurs in spring, the colors of flowers and flowering tree blossoms are often in the range considered “pastel”. Light blues, turquoise, yellow, green, pink, white, and lavender are all examples of such colors. Also, light orange or coral colors and light shades of turquoise are pastel Easter colors.
