Guest Bedroom in Fresh Muted Pink

We blogged that Benjamin Moore’s color of the year 2020–First Light, if you haven’t read our blog, please click here to read And we think the color is pretty neutral yet moody and can be an elegant backdrop for any interiors.  In Orange County Hill Project, we painted Client’s guest bedroom in kind of similar pink color—neutral yet elegant and sophiticated:

The light warm pink create such a dreamy atmosphere. The tufted bed headboard adds depth and interest to the space while the 2 of brass pendants anchor the bedroom and champaign nightstands lend a touch of sophistication. Artwork for sure is the soul of the room.  This is a soothe and delicate place  place where guests can relax well.

  1. Float a sleek shoe cabinet behind the entry door , so you can organize your shoes neatly and nicely.

Selfie Sunday—Color of Red

One of my favorite things to do over the summer weekends is scrolling around little  beach towns in the neighborhood.  I couldn’t think where I can go to get  some fresh cool beach breeze , explore unexpected vintage founds and enjoy my different colors of macarons.  Often, the color palettes on the hight streets of  these little towns are so fascinated that they put me in such a relaxing mood.  I start to slow down and really take time to absorb and observe my surroundings.  So, today I am going to feature color of red.  Color of red  refers to  passion, happiness , positive vibes, high fashion, romance. When pairing with pale blue, pink , black and blush, it creates different moods.

From fashion to automobile, yes, we see a lot of cream, almond, vanilla colors in 2019. The other day, I just unintentionly picked up a cream hat for myself . It looks so good with almost everything.

 

fall_winter_2018_2019_color_trends_almond_buff_camel.jpg

Those warm almond/cream colors are classical, soft and timeless. Now, the trend comes to the interiors too. These almond colors truly never go out of style and they do the wonder in the room.

1. DIMITY, FARROW & BALL
Farrow & Ball

c3bfff38a650519144452382de5504f2.jpg

It’s soft, elegant and warm, perfect applied on the trims and also rich enough to stand alone on the walls and ceilings.

“This paint color makes it into a lot of our residential projects. It is the perfect trim color when the walls are deep classic hues but it is also rich enough to stand alone on walls and ceilings themselves. I used Dimity in my bedroom when I moved into my Manhattan home six years ago and I’m still impressed by the softness and elegance years later.” — Anna Beeber

2.NATURAL WICKER, BENJAMIN MOORE

This is a quite special shade,  not too white, not too yellow, and it looks great with anything.  It is the color of a Marcona almond. IIt will look super elegant snd chic paired with leafy green or the glossiest chocolate brown.

This classic dark taupe was inspired by the cottages found in the pretty Cotswold villages of Oxfordshire. It Brimming with warmth and an unmatchable depth, the subtle richness of Oxford Stone creates an earthy and uplifting finish from top to bottom, sweeping across woodwork and walls.

It’s perfect for an English country kitchen while still feeling current and fresh.

 

4.CHINA WHITE, BENJAMIN MOORE

China white is both cool and warm at the same time. The subtle creamy depth of the color is perfect to harmonize with both vintage elements and contemporary details.

4 Ways to Restyle Your Kitchen in an Artsy way

 

 

Last Saturday was a beautiful day—sunshine, nice breezes and full-blooms everywhere.  I was invited to an open house by a Japanese Gifu craft showroom in west LA.  Since I need to  find some unique kitchenwares for couple of projects. I decided to take a little road trip.

IMG_0073-1.jpg
As you can see, I always love to stop and small flowers specially when it is spring season.
IMG_7349-1.jpg
By entering the showroom, OMG, I was just amazed by how they arranged these beautiful organic kitchenwares with a little touch of ikebana–subtle, calming yet elegant.

What I hold is a mini donabe condiment bowl.  It is just so cute.  Donabe is a kind of Japanese traditional earth-ware(clay pot). You can see how we open these little donabe from the following video.

So, if you are in the process to re-organize or re-style your kitchen for spring cleaning here are several tips to make the task fun and easier:

  1. Kitchenwares are one of the major components in the kitchen. So, find something that is  Love in the first sight. When you have something you truly like and enjoy, you probably won’t feel it is not really that  boring  to do any chore in the kitchen.
  2. Have some fresh flowers or greenery in your kitchen no matter how small and how simple your kitchen is. I guarantee those little beauties will brighten up your everyday-life.
  3. Have the habit of collecting  inspiring menus that talk to you. That way, you know how you are going to use your kitchen and how you would like to arrange and display your kitchenwares.
  4. It will be a good idea to  have couple pieces of earth wares–they are natural, organic and  artsy, and always remind you of your mom’s kitchen. So at the end of the day, you may find kitchen is your favorite place to wind down and reconnect with the family.

Tile Trends 2019 II

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:

  1. 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:
TILEIMG_4084.jpg
Don’t you just like this  fashionable vintage color pairs : sky-blue and bright yellow in such a playful Moroccan-style geometric pattern.
TILEIMG_4056
Do you notice the chiseled edge? It’s quite boho and organic. I think these tiles can make a very adorable counter backsplash. Again, the pop of yellow make me feel cheerful.
TILEIMG_4086
This tile design is one of my favorites. I love the muted neutral color palette. This pattern can be quite classic and modern at the same time. It truly can make your kitchen stay timeless.

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:

tileIMG_4091
This coral tiles will be perfect for a guest bathroom—warm and inviting.
tileIMG_4092
What do you think of color of red. This red tiles will make a strong statement in a powder room.  I specially like the textured surface.

Holiday Tabletop—Rich Jewel-tone Color Palette

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!
