Hello, everyone, here is our part II tile trends in 2019. If you haven’t red the part I, please click here to learn more
I recently attended Daltile designer event for the showcase of new tile products. I feel it is pretty amazing specially I can find the local manufactures who custom-made such fashionable and cool design tiles right here in our backyard. Here are 2 of trends I observed from the showcase:
Moroccan tile influence : Moroccan tiles are famous for its hand-made quality, its uniqueness, fun patterns and craftsmanship. People start to bring these vibes to machine-made ceramic tiles with lower cost and much-faster lead time. Here are some samples I found from the showcase:
2. Color, color, color : there will be more bold colors for tile design in 2019. I did a lot of grey tile projects in the past several years and I am open to some fashionable and bold colors.
I found coral and red at the showcase. The colors do make me feel excited:
When the sun shines through the windows, that is when magic happens. We realize it is spring time. Fresh, fashionable and feminine, this IS the theme for our Spring Story collection in fashion, home and art:
Christmas and New year are offically in count-down now. Hope you are in a mood for just being festive to celebrate the end of 2018.
One thing that fascinates me about holiday is the cheerful jewel-tone color palette. I feel that most people are just too scared to use the rich jewel-tone colors on the regular days. But those colors are not just for holidays and they do make you happier and enhances your appetite. And most importantly, they are from Nature. So this rich color jewel-tone palette can actually put you at ease and remind you it is time to celebrate. I finally find the time to put together our Thanksgiving table set and will sure update this post soon. Enjoy!
Today will be Tom Brady’s 8th times to appear in the Super Bowel. Tom Brady(5-times Super Bowl Champion winner) may be considered king of the football field, but he’s also a big player in the real-estate realm. Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen—the world’s second-highest paid celebrity couple—have owned property on both coasts of the country, from a solar-paneled mansion with a moat in Los Angeles to a sprawling spread near Boston.
Let’s have a quick a look at these multimillion-dollar homes to get a sense of their style.
Los Angeles—simplicity, coziness and eco-conciousness.
Brady and Bündchen sold their brentwood mansion to Dr. Dre in 2014 for $40 million, almost quadruple the $11.75 million they bought it for
In 2014, after selling their 18,298-square-foot Brentwood estate to Dr. Dre for $40 million, the couple returned to the East Coast to custom-design a new compound for $4.5 million. Their Brookline home—albeit about 4,000 square feet smaller than their Los Angeles abode—is no downgrade, however.
Gisele Bundchen shared images of their Chestnut Hill home via Vogue Italia, which will feature Bundchen on its February cover, set to release on Feb. 6. We are really looking forward to them soon. But here are some home photos from Gisele Bundchen Instagram account:
We can see it is a perfect place to unwind and has abundant natural light and neutral decor which add texture and richness to the rooms.
New York, New York
In August 2016, Brady and Bündchen became the first celebrities to score part of 70 Vestry, a new luxury condo in New York’s Tribeca slated for completion in 2018. The couple will reportedly sell their current Manhattan residence, a $14 million penthouse at One Madison in Flatiron, once they move into their new apartment.
The weather has been really nice lately. The roses in my backyard garden start to bloom. And there was Valentine’s Day. Therefore, I decided to do some spring make over a week ago. The color palette I used here is magenta, pink, lavender, gold and neutrals. Here are some vignettes I love to share here:
Happy holidays! Hope everybody is enjoying the holiday time with loved ones. Just before setting our NYE party, I am finally able to put all of photos of our Christmas home decor 2016 together. I was having fun mixing and matching the traditional and modern, the old and new, the pinks and red, and etc… Overall our Christmas decor this year is light, modern and romantic with a touch of traditional.
I usually have a long run on Sundays. So I go easy on Mondays and schedule client meetings afterwards. Monday is a perfect time for me to organize interior pictures I took when I went to show houses and places with beautiful room decor. There are tons of them. I will have to file them as inspirations for different projects.
First of all, my inspiration always come from nature. We happened to have a little rain this morning. My backyard garden was so romantic in the rain and I shot this picture of a lemon:
Here are rest of interior pictures for today’s filing:
Happy almost Friday! We are in the middle of the process of choosing some fabric for a custom sofa for the client. European velvet and checkered pattern fabric will be on my top list. But by now, time for some champaign, tea and roses.
