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!

A Quick Look Inside The Multimillion-Dollar Homes Of Tom Brady

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

Brookline, Massachusetts

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.

Spring Fresh Makeover

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:

v-freshflowers.jpg
Playing different shades of pink. Love the pale pink table cloth which makes everything look so soft and subtle.  Gold truly adds a touch of sophistication and class to any space.

Beautiful blooms from my backyard. I mixed purple and hot pink together.  It’s fashionable, chic and cheerful.

Monday Inspirations

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:

lemon.jpg
The lemon with water drops make me feel so grounded, happy and peaceful.

Here are rest of interior pictures  for today’s filing:

 

monday-1.jpg
Wherever I go, I always take  pictures of flowers.  They are just such beauties.
monday-2.jpg
A beautiful table-set for a perfect autumnal afternoon tea.  Life is beautiful!
monday-3.jpg
To- the floor- drapery with a simple form yet a little details will always be a great idea to uplift a room, make it  warm, elegant and lady-like.  I love the pink and checkered floor–chic and classic.
monday-vignettedrapery.jpg
soft and romantic. Love the trim detail.
monday-4
This my today’s favorite.  Love the orange chinoiserie wallpaper and cream channel-backed mid-century sofa.  Nicely done for a mix-and-match style.
mondayvignette-3.jpg
Love the   blue-white chinoisorie vase, cream lamp-shaded wall scone against lime-green glass-cloth wallpaper.

 

I hope you find those interiors inspirational.

 

Happy Monday
