Friday Eye-candies— Glamours Hollywood Homes

TGIF!  After a long week, I hope you are able to wind down for a relaxing Friday evening with a glass of red wine and enjoy some of the glamous interiors I am going going to share with you in this blog.  They are either edgy on the color palettes, having one of the art collections or still keeping flawless classic charm:

Clean and Neutral

After a colorful holiday celebration, we are naturally more attracted to a clean and neutral space, the space that helps us to clear our minds, reflects the past year and visions the future.  I just came across a few great designs today and would love to share some of them with you in this blog.

 

Here is the house by Tracy Hardenburg Designs  in Baltimore.  The high-ceiling, the neutral color palette and the clean-line architectural details make this home an elegant and quiet  refuge.

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.

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.

Secrets behind High-end Sofa Making

It’s one of those days—exciting but nervous.  Yes, it is when it’s time to check out the final finished custom-made products.  A custom work often involves  a lot of efforts from understanding what exactly clients’ want, how to create that Wow factor to actually making  it.  There are redesigns and every detail counts.  Fortunately, this project ends up  beautifully  thanks to a highly-skilled production team.

It’s a beautiful piece with green velvet from France. Such a romantic tailored looking.

We will share the exact design and looking when we deliver pieces to the client’s house.  Please stay tuned with us.

But here are also some secrets behind making a beautiful high-end piece if that what you are looking for.

  1. First of all, it’s a team.

 

Each member in the whole  work flow is well-trained and has at least 10- years-experience  for their crafts.  Most importantly,  they have a great attitude and very dedicated.   They are truly looking good in these photos.  Thank each of them to deliver such beautiful pieces.

2. Second, it’s a very complicated work flow to assure each detail is well taken cared of.

Sunday Farmer’s Market

One of my favorite things to do on weekends is to visit the local farmer’s markets.  I can truly enjoy myself by strolling around and literally get inspired by garden fresh and little cute vintage founds.  We have quite a few in Los Angeles.  I go to different ones for the different weekends.  Here are some  shoots I took today.  Fall hues and textures in the farmer’s market are so gorgeous!  I cannot wait to work on some fall-themed table settings next week.   It was such a pleasant experience to immense myself in fresh veggies, flowers, home-made foods in this beautiful Southern Californian fall sunny day!
