Friday House Tour

Finally, we have a little bit cooler weather, about 90 degree. The daily temperature of the  whole week is averaged at 100 degree. So I regard today’s weather is a big bless. Yes, and it is Friday.  Friday’s color palette should be relaxing, soothe, cheerful yet something that gives you a totally fresh feeling and make you want to take a weekend adventure.  Welcome to Finnish designer Minna Parikka’s colorful Helsinki home.

a typical Scandinavia decor yet with a lot of fashionable elements—the patterns, blush neutral background tones with pop of colors.  There are things but they are functional and arranged in a mindful way.

A cheerful yet elegant refugee.

Love the design on the cabinetry. Lucite coffee table under the cabinet brings the light and easiness to the space. Each piece here is an art piece yet they all have purposes.

Crisp, clean with some pops of elegant color and fresh flowers. Love the chair design.

Villa Les Cèdres, a 187-year-old, 18,000-square-foot, 14-bedroom mansion set on 35 acres that include 300 year old olive trees is on the market for $410 million and the current owners are betting that the house’s combination of history, luxury, and a prime location along the coast of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat will be enough to make it the most expensive residential sale in history.

A Luxe California Style with a Indoor–outdoor Living

I know it is fall  and it is truly getting chilly here in Los Angeles.  But after all, it’s SoCal and people are just absolutely obsessed with indoor-outdoor living here.  Wouldn’t be nice that your bedroom door opens out into the lush greenery garden with charming all-year-around blooms.   It’s such a heaven.  I can imagine it.  What about you?  Let’s check out Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber’s new  $11.6 million stunning Beverly Hills home in the luxurious Trousdale .  The 5,386-square-foot residence includes five bedrooms and six bathrooms, with plenty of amenities to ensure the perfect balance of outdoor and indoor living, according to Trulia.   I also fall in love with the large  kitchen marble island .

Hope you enjoy your 4th July holiday.  Here is ours by the poolside.  The fabric,  decorative pillows, outdoor draped daybeds and lounge chairs really put us in a relaxing mood.  Maybe you can get some inspirations to dress up your poolside.

Weekend Brunch Tabletop

It’s fun, fun, fun to host our own Sunday brunch at home because we can control what we put in the mouth and specially,  it’s the beginning of the summer time and the weather is so nice.   What we do have a lot now are floras and greeneries.    Peonies are in the season in LA.  So there is no reason not to go big on greenery  and floral table decor. But I rather do them in a very organic and  simple way.   Here is the video we shot for one of our weekend brunch tabletop.

 

I hope you enjoy watching the video.  Here are 3 take-aways for an elegant yet casual tabletop setting:

  1. Have a lot of greeneries accentuated by in-season flowers.
  2. Have a main color theme for the table-setting—we used blue-and-white in the video—the perfect color palette to celebrate the beginning of the summer.
  3. Just schedule time to do it over the weekend.  You are going to enjoy it a lot!

Mother’s Day Home Decor Series

 

Mother’s day is just several days away.  We have created  the beautiful interior vignettes to honor this special holiday to cherish motherhood, femininity, generosity, gentleness, kindness, care  and love.  Mother Teresa said : “Mother is the heart of the home.”   We believe that home is a place that makes us feel beautiful and loved.   The color palette of  the vignette we created below is pastels mixed with a pop of saturated colors and neutral tones to express femininity , passion and gentleness.
