Peek Inside of US Navy Hospital Ship Comfort

The USNS comfort (T-AH-20) is the world’s biggest hospital ship and it’s currently heading to the New York harbor where it’s intended to free up hospital beds in the greater new York region .The US Navy’s mammoth floating hospital USNS Comfort was sent to New York after 9/11.  The idea is that this ship, which hosts 1,000 beds, 12 operating rooms and up to 1,200 doctors, nurses and medical specialists, will be taking on non-coronavirus patients, allowing hospitals to focus on the most critical ones suffering from the virus.

The huge vessel boasts one of the largest trauma facilities in the United States, complete with four functioning X-Ray machines, a CAT Scan unit, a full dental suite, optometry lens laboratory, physical therapy center, pharmacy, angiography suite and two oxygen-producing plants.  It is not only a floating hospital, it’s a floating hospital that is likely better equipped than the brick and mortar one in your town.

Although the Comfort, and its sister ship that serves as the class’ namesake, the Mercy, are U.S. Navy ships, they come equipped with no offensive capabilities whatsoever, and exist solely to provide care to those in need on a level unrivaled by any other expeditionary organization.  The vessel began its life in 1976 as a San-Clemente class oil tanker named the SS Rose City.  It was converted and renamed in a ceremony on December 1st of 1987, when it began its new life in support of humanitarian operations the world over.

Home Tour—a Charming Californian Abode

 

With bombarded news on Cov-19 on  everyday, we are eagerly looking for some beautiful design that wow us and let us get away for a while yet still let us feel relevant and the comfy of home. Then we came across this redesign of a Newport home by Peter Dunham on Veranda Magazine.  We got to know Pete through his fascinated textile collections —bright colors, sophisticated patterns , layered casual and vintage vibes , and his inspirational story how he got evolved to design  from real estate industry.

 

The house is located in Newport,  California  and the home owners bought it more than 25 years ago. Not satisfied with the limited nature light thanks to the house’s traditional  L shape, the home owners did several remodeling throughout years.  and now theirs kids are all grown up and they would like to have some new exciting changes to start their new chapter in life. . The wife is gardener and love cooking.  She entertains a lot outdoors.  So, let’s have a tour on this charming adobe together.

 

dunham-pool-california-1582322199

Architect Bob White of Forest Studio did such a great job by moving  the footprint forward on the lot to embrace a pool and open up more outdoor living and entertaining areas.  In the picture above, we love how the new-built white pool house are against against a backdrop of big pines and eucalyptus just like a dreamy English country house.

 

 

dunham-living-room-california-1582561963

And for indoors, the home owners hired Pete Dunhum to re-imagine their house because they love how he layers vintage with contemporary art.  In the picture above of living room, we can see a large  contemporary artwork by Jennifer Bartlett nicely contrasts  with an antique mantle, vintage Syrie Maugham armchairs  and a round ottoman which  make the space collected and rooted.

 

dunham-seating-nook-california-1582322278

From the picture above, this is totally Peter Dunham’s signature style—-vibrant Indian textiles, exotic furniture pieces all mix up with soft British parsley roman shades, mid-century modern wall cones in a warm and feminine backdrop of  a warm peach wall paint.  The color palette in this room is pulled out from a contemporary artwork on the wall to guarantee a cohesiveness in this space.  We love the vibrant English cottage vibe in this space.

 

dunham-kitchen-california-1582322063

This all-white kitchen is definitely our favorite. The all-white color palette keeps the cool of a beach house while the natural wood on the chairs and hardwood flooring invite warmth to this kitchen.  A custom-made brass-steel island range-hood is a focal point of the kitchen and also indicates that the wife is a serious cook.

 

dunham-potting-shed-california-1582322254

Now it comes outdoor.  We love this cute  planting nook  under the poolhouse stairs with a window to usher light into the workspace.

Textiles on this outdoor blue-stone banquette are just as sophisticated as indoors.

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.

How to clean your home to prevent coronavirus spread

With fast-growing outbreak of  coronavirus,  more and more people are looking for ways to clean and disinfect their living spaces.

The CDC suggests you clean and disinfect all “high-touch areas” in your home, from doorknobs to smartphones.

Here are the guides fromCDC:

How to Clean and Disinfect

Surfaces

  • If surfaces are dirty, they should be cleaned using a detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
  • For disinfection, diluted household bleach solutions, alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol, and most common EPA-registered household disinfectants should be effective.
    • Diluted household bleach solutions can be used if appropriate for the surface. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.
  • Prepare a bleach solution by mixing:
    • 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water or
    • 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water
    • Products with EPA-approved emerging viral pathogens claimspdf iconexternal icon are expected to be effective against COVID-19 based on data for harder to kill viruses. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for all cleaning and disinfection products (e.g., concentration, application method and contact time, etc.).
    • For soft (porous) surfaces such as carpeted floor, rugs, and drapes, remove visible contamination if present and clean with appropriate cleaners indicated for use on these surfaces. After cleaning:
    • If the items can be laundered, launder items in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions using the warmest appropriate water setting for the items and then dry items completely.
    • Otherwise, use products with the EPA-approved emerging viral pathogens claims (examples at this linkpdf iconexternal icon) that are suitable for porous surfaces 

Linens, Clothing, and Other Items That Go in the Laundry

  • Do not shake dirty laundry; this minimize the possibility of dispersing virus through the air.
  • Wash items as appropriate in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If possible, launder items using the warmest appropriate water setting for the items and dry items completely. Dirty laundry that has been in contact with an ill person can be washed with other people’s items.
  • Clean and disinfect hampers or other carts for transporting laundry according to guidance above for hard or soft surfaces.

Please make sure you visit https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2020-03/documents/sars-cov-2-list_03-03-2020.pdf  for EPA’s Registered Antimicrobial Products for Use Against Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the Cause of COVID-19.

Peek Inside Diana von Furstenburg’s Manhattan Home

Diana von Furstenburg is a powerful woman not only in fashion industry but also an active philanthropist.  She  sits on the board of Vital Voices, an organization that empowers emerging women leaders and social entrepreneurs, and also serves as a Director of The Diller – von Furstenberg Family Foundation, through which  the designer has donated to several important causes. Yesterday, in  honor of  International Women’s Day, she teamed up with Amazon to launch In Charge store  featuring  inspirational women-owned small businesses.   You can click here to check out the details.

She described her design style for her fashion in 1985  “[There are] three essential F’s in designing for women…flattering, feminine, and, above all, functional.”  And she loves life. So, we couldn’t help but wander what her homes look like.  Luckily, Artuitect Digest visited her Manhattan home in 2017.  So let’s take a look at designer’s Manhattan home together.

 

diane-von-furstenberg-new-york-penthouse-4
The living room showcases her intuitive take for mixing colors and patterns, elements that have defined her fashion style and brand.  We love how she played a low-profile box mustard sofa with her own over-sized black-and-white portrait, chic black-and-white animal print pillows and various shapes of mid-century modern wood furniture at the white wall backdrop. The portrait is by Zhang Huan; Von Furstenberg created the leopard-spot carpeting for the Rug Company. The armchair is by Michael Graves.  Photo Credits: Architectural Digest

A high style and playful home filled with well-collected art—above a vintage Salvador Dalí sofa is a Duong self-portrait; the sconces are by André Dubreuil, and the tables are by Alexandra von Furstenberg, Diane von Furstenberg’s daughter. we love this pink-on-pink color scheme. It is both flattering and feminine. A large-scaled leopard print rug anchors the space.

With Spring  approaching, we are more obsessed to light and airy home interiors. And what really made us want to talk about today’s home(located at Park Ave.), besides its lightness, is its way to masterfully bring past and present together with the charm of East Coast sophistication.

This  Park Avenue abode gets an airy update by American renowned interior design firm Kemble Interiors. Celerie Kemble, the founder of  Kemble Interiors, is well known for her signature style of whimsy and color. And we will say her style also embraces maximal-ism since she is very detail-oriented in a classical way. But when she took the project with her design partner, they really listened and  incorporated  client’s minimalism aesthetic in the design and created this  whimsical  modern chic East Coast home. Let’s take look at this home together:

  1. Airy Color Palette: white-on-white wall paints with modernized classical chinoisorie and striped wallpaper treatments on the accent walls.
Park-Avenue-Traditional-Apartment-Living-Room
The wall paints, the furniture, the lamp shades and flooring are in a harmonious elegant light color palette of white,  cream, blush  and light brown while the brass on the lighting fixtures and coffee tables  add touch of glamor.  Greenery and fresh flower arrangements make this living space alive.  The colors in furnishings of this living room actually were pulled out from a modernized chinoiserie wallpaper on a accent wall.  What we want to mention here is the modern classical chandelier hanging over the living room ceiling, if this is a west coast home, this light fixture might go super minimalism style.  This is where we see the decor difference between East Coast and West Coast.

2. Bring the past and present together : One of the way to bring the past and present together is to modernize classical furniture and let them stand out in a light muted  backdrop.

The black wall mirror, console are streamlined classical pieces with details. Same are two acrylic Louis XVI chairs flunking the console.  A modern gold-leaf chandelier in this foyer truly makes a statement.

We love this green velvet on both wall treatments and chairs in the dining room, which is contrasting with a crisp white elliptical dining table, white floors and white ceiling.

Warm muted dark orange and brown on the pleated to-the-floor drapery panels and desk chairs elevate this all-white study and add a touch of sophistication. The chevron-patterned area rug is the star in this study.

5. A banquette in a kitchen is an effective way to bring the style and comfy to a kitchen.

We love this light  blush channeled banquette—it is stylish and easy on the eyes. The artwork on the wall make this all-white kitchen interesting.
