Every year we will design Chinese New Year tabletop theme. For lunar  New Year 2020, the year of the metal rat, we features the following elements:

  1. Color Palette—embrace Pantone Color of the Year 2020—Classic Blue with touch of traditional Chinese red and pastel pink to create a modern, intimate, chic and festive decor vibe. The large area of white paint in this eat-in space balance off Classic Blue and light up the whole area.  In this color palette, we have influences from Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2020–First Light, DunEdwards Color of the Year 2020 –Mint Fresh and PPT color of the Year 2020—China Porcelain.

A banquette seating is trendy in any eat-in space, specially the corner area —it looks pretty neat, stylish and offer extra seats and storage for get-togethers.  The plush cushions, upholstered fabric and throw pillows together elevate the every-day eat-in spaces and bring in elegance.

A Day to Down Town Disneyland

When I came cross the news that Gucci just collaborated with Disneyland to launch their Chinese New Year 2020 collection, I felt super inspired and excited.  I was thinking that would be a good idea to visit Down Town Disneyland to check out their new design in 2020 and that also would be great way to greet Chinese New Year since  Chinese New Year is coming on Jan. 25th and this year will be year of the rat.   Disneyland is the happiest place in the world.

From Renée Zellweger’s baby Blue on 77th Golden Globe Awards to Home

Hi, guys, we would like to let you know that  this week is our Golden Globes Awards week. And we will talk a lot about the fashion, tabletop styling, set design  from the Awards and pair them with our favorite looks-alike interiors. Today’s blog is series 3. If you haven’t read the first two blogs, you can click here for the tabletop tips from the Awards  and click here for Billy Porter’s all-white inspired rooms

Ok, today, we are going to talk about Renée Zellweger’s stunning Baby Blue dress on the 77th Golden Globe. Obviously, she is not only one of the Best Actress but also one of the best dressed.

golden-globes-red-carpet-dresses-2020-renee-zellweger-1578273352.jpg
Renée Zellweger Wears Striking Baby Blue Strapless Gown on the Golden Globes Red Carpet

This is Zellweger’s fourth Golden Globe win. She won her first Golden Globe in 2001 for her rule in “Nurse Betty.” The next came in 2003 for “Chicago,” followed by 2004 for “Cold Mountain.”

 

The 47-year-old actress, whose portrayal of Judy Garland in Rupert Goold’s biopic, arrived at the 2020 Golden Globes in a strapless baby blue custom-made Armani Privé gown, featuring a thigh-high slit and crystal-embroidered piping.  Zellweger pulled her blonde hair back in a loose updo and wore a soft pink lipstick. She accessorized with matching Jimmy Choo pumps and a gold cuff.  Renée completed her outfit with a David Webb gold and diamond bracelet.

IMG_8527-scaled

She does look stunning in that baby blue gown.  So the look is sleek, modern, chic yet classic at the same time.  Our take-aways to create Renee’s timeless modern classic look:

  1. Minimalism yet elegant form
  2. Yes, ice blue please,
  3. A touch of glamor—her gold bracelet and crystal pipings on her blue gown
  4. Have something loose( her loose hair style) to relax the overall look.
  5.  Keep accessories simple and minimum.

We talked about PPT’s China Porcelain, DunEdwards’ Minty Fresh, Sherwin Williams’ Naval and Pantone’ Classic blue. So you can tell that blue is pretty big this year. Actually, blue is a timeless color and versatile for all kinds of interiors. We round up some blue modern classic interiors here to pair with Renee’s Golden Globe look this year.

How Do Celebrities Design Their Home

At the beginning of the year, you are properly planning to renovate your home in 2020. So we gather some information here on how celebrities design their home. Design for Entertaining “I entertain for a living, and I entertain,” Jennifer Aniston told AD in 2010, on a tour of her Beverly Hills mansion. “The house has a rather glamorous, old-fashioned Hollywood quality,” she said at the time. “I can just imagine the Rat Pack stopping by; someone is playing the piano, and people are laughing in the next room.” Her home was meticulously designed with warm woods, shag rugs, and Asian influences like koi ponds and a cascading chandelier—and Aniston said she wanted the house to feel like “a big hug. People can get so distracted by static, I love the silence here.” Jennifer%2520Aniston.jpg Warm, Inviting just like an oil painting You can click here to read our blog on one of Aniston’s home. Pocket Door and Pink Glass Obsession “I have a pocket door obsession, and a pink glass obsession,” Tyler told AD in 2019, on a tour of her West Village townhouse, which she’s owned since 2001. After a gut renovation, Tyler installed many pocket sliding doors, to allow for privacy or more open, free-flowing spaces. And on the top master floor, she put in a unique skylight. “I decided I wanted to put in this pink tinted glass, and everyone thought I was crazy, but it gives such an amazing warm light to the space.” In the airy master bathroom, she put in sliding pocket doors with pink textured glass panes, combining her two favorite things. Liv20Tyler Pocket doors and pink accents in Liv Tyler’s New York townhouse.
Photo: Max Burkhalter Perfectly Calm and Peaceful. When Jenner took AD on a tour of her new Hidden Hills, California, home in 2019, it was a tranquil, spalike wash of whites, grays and blues, with plenty of plants and contemporary artwork. “My job is so hectic and chaotic. I’m always running a million miles an hour. I wanted my home to feel like a sanctuary, perfectly calm and peaceful,” she explained. “I love a really open floor plan because it makes me feel really zen and relaxed…and colors [like this] just make me feel so calm.” Kris_Jenner.jpg Tranquility was top of mind for Jenner as she designed her space.

From Cheerful Table-settings at Golden Globe 2020 to Our Everyday Eating Experiences

we know that  a beautiful tabletop always makes any event so sweet, memorable and vibrant,  not even mentioning  prestigious academy events like Golden Globe.  The design of the tabletop at 77th Golden Globe is chic, modern with a touch of signature Hollywood glamor—roses and Champaign.

03goldenglobes3

The all-white dinner set choice, for sure, keeps all of the possible chaoes and fusses  into the minimum while providing calming and clean backdrop for the beautifully arranged two-tone rose centerpieces, also, I believe, the smiles of the star guests.

Well, Beyonce’s gown really  looks good with those bright orange and yellow roses.

Celebrity florist Mark’s Garden is behind the floral designs for this year’s show, and the California-based business flew in more than 10,000 blooms from Ecuador and Italy for the ceremony. The flowers, which have vibrant orange and yellow hues, add a pop of color to the dozens of tables inside the ballroom.
