Spring Blooms

We visited a little botanic garden yesterday. At a first look, it seems that there is nothing happening. But when we turned around and took a close look, then magical just happened. We saw the beautiful spring flowers with the most amazing color and shape are quietly blooming in the soft late afternoon spring sunshine. Then we found more and more amazing spring blooms almost on every single branch. We were puzzled that why we didn’t see them at all at the very beginning. Maybe we have to quiet our mind first and then able to see the beautiful things that we can’t see when we are in a hurry or when we feel anxious. This philosophy also applies when we design our home. When there are too many options and we just don’t know which one to choose, maybe it is the time for us to step back and take a deep breath, just ask ourselves a simple question: which one pleases my mind?

Here are some of the photos we took from yesterday’s visit. Please enjoy!

Nature has the most amazing colors. We love this blueish purple. The different shades of blue and purple make a fashion-forward interior.

Tour A Modern London Townhouse

Today we are going to tour a charming London townhouse. It’s a modern house with classical bones and a bit of British humor.

Entry

We like the grey and pearl color palette with a subtle pop of blue here in the entry. The feeling here is open, airy yet inviting and grounded thanks to a striking spiral staircase design, abundance of natural light, soft velvet fabric on the round settee and a traditional wood flooring.

TOUR PARIS’S HOTTEST NEW RESTAURANT

We all have longed for a global travel for a quite while. Since it seems impossible to travel globally for most of us, let’s browse the internet for some cool new design. Today we are going to take a look at a new restaurant in Paris— Mon Square. It’s chic, cute, colorful and use quite a lot of pink. The restaurant has begun to pull in a lively crowd of film stars, politicians, diplomats, neighborhood regulars, and young and trendy Parisians. It is French designer Florence Lopez‘s first public work. We definitely love her approach to make the restaurant inviting, soft, welcome and intimate –kind of the approach when we design residential projects.

Holiday 2020 Room Design Ideas–Reading Room Vignette

In the year of 2020, we want to go a little bit extra bold in our holiday show-house design. The reason is simple that we are all so desperate to go on a journey of adventure after we have stayed in our home for so long. As we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel( yes, several of vaccines for COVID-19 are coming), let’s still practice all of the safe social manners. And rather, let’s play a little bit of magic at home. In this year’s holiday show-house, we introduced some bold patterns such as leopard prints and folks art. We put things that don’t seem belong to each other together to create fun, playful and the one-of-the-kind holiday decor that helps express ourselves with some cheers and dreams in this special moment.

Tour a Comfortable and Glamorous Modern Home in Melbourne

We came across this Melbourne apartment today and were impressed by its museum-like space artfully filled with bold furniture and interesting objects. What even amazing is that this apartment is actually not that big but the designer himself curated such a sophisticated interior that everyone is going to fall in love with.

Living Room

Overall, this is a quite clean-line modern home. However, the orange brown low-profile velvet sofa is warm and inviting while the brass mushroom table lamp brings in a touch of glamor. We love the coffee-table books on the cocktail table. Artworks are quite 70s style.
