Tuesday House Tour— Fashion Designer, Ralph Lauren’s Home and Office

It’s Tuesday house tour time.  We will take a look  inside designer Ralph Lauren’s  Bedford, New York house, Colorado ranch, and Manhattan office.  Lauren is the first fashion designer to offer a comprehensive home-furnishings line, which he crafts around themed lifestyle collections.

At Lauren’s residence in Bedford, New York, a 19th-century Dutch chandelier presides over the entrance hall.  Love the airy and sophisticated vibes at the entry.

In the living room, matching 19th-century Louis XV–style wing chairs flank an 18th-century Chinese carved low table; pillows made from antique textiles accent the sofa, and the throw in the foreground is a 19th-century Kashmiri paisley.   The space is full collection of  art, hand-crafted objects, fine home goods…

Ralph Lauren Home fabrics cover the sofa and pillows in the poolhouse, which features 16th-century Belgian pine ceiling beams and a 17th-century French limestone mantel; the lamps are made from 18th-century Chinese vessels.  I love the open and tranquil feel in this room.  And of course, blue-and-whites.

The breakfast room’s tableware is by Ralph Lauren Home, as are the fabrics used for the tablecloth and the cushions on the 19th-century English armchairs; the painting is 17th-century Dutch.  This is one of my rooms.  I always have a thing with layered table-cloth—it’s elegant, relaxing and fun.

A vintage French bistro mirror hangs above the antique pedestal sink in the poolhouse bath.  Love this vintage mirror with a clean–line modern flair.

A circa-1774 portrait by Pompeo Girolamo Batoni is displayed between the library’s French doors, which are curtained with a Ralph Lauren Home velvet; the two-arm Argand lamp is 19th century, and the pillows are made of antique fabrics.  This is truly Lauren’s signature style—dark and rich color palettes, brass elements, wood panelings, checkered fabric…

Long-Weekend Vibes

Wouldn’t be nice we have this long weekend holiday and it’s in May.  It’s such a beautiful season to pamper ourselves with all of Spring beauties. My favorite are always about blue-and-whites, greenery, pink blooms, gardens, sunshine, fresh air… How about you?  How are you going to celebrate MemorialLong-weekend?

 

A splash of Pink

For some weired reason, I always have a mood for color of pink on Wednesday.  What about you?  What is your mood color on Wednesday?  From hot pink, blush to muted pastel, pink always evokes feeling of romance, dream, elegance, feminism, sophistication and sweetness.

Maximalism in 2018

It’s finally Friday and its grey, cloudy and overcast in LA.  I thought the rain is coming but Siri said no.  Anyway, it will be a perfect day to cuddle at home, doing some heavy readings and just gathering all of my thoughts together.   I came across some topics on interior trends in 2018.   One of the trends that everybody is talking  about is Maximalism.  I talked about Maximalism in one of my blog last year and it seems that this trend  is going to mainstream in 2018.  For me, Maximalism is so inevitable after several-years of Kondoing and Scandinavia minimalism.  It gives you a such big release and freedom to express yourself.  When you start to see a lot of colors, patterns , textures and adoring objects, you truly feel happy from inside.

 

First of all, here is the food.  This is one of of the events we went recently.  Don’t you just love these colorful veggies?

And here is the tabletop I just did for our MLK weekends.  Don’t you agree with me—the more the merrier?

Here are some great plates and linens with patter-on-pattern Maximalism style.

Then here is the art event we went recently.  It’s Pip & Pop’s debut US installation entitled “Here Comes Sunshine”.   The installation is constructed by highly detailed works that embrace notions of abundance, utopian dreams and fleeting pleasure.  The installation made me feel so happy for the whole night.

 

 

 

Last but not else, here are some great Maximalism interiors I really enjoy.
