Tabletop Setup Before & After

One of the things I am passionate about all the time is to set up a tabletop for whatever the reasons .   It’s fun and  it’s about celebrating life with beautiful things.   Here are 5 elements to successfully set up a table:

  1. Runners, placemats,  or fresh-patterned tablecloth
  2. Chanderliers
  3. Candles
  4. Floral enter piece
  5. China

3 Colors that are Trendy Now

It’s almost the end of August.  I feel I just cannot wait to see all of  the new color palettes in fall. Here are 3 colors that I start to see them everywhere and they may dominate the this coming fall season.

  1. Chili Pepper Red— a little bit red on accessories like purses, boots, socks, …etc pairing with warm neutrals  is fresh, exciting yet classic and ladylike.4f1fc827becf8fc62570522a43f1ef900cec1b2d68bce193054bc7b155734d0d

2.Cinnemon:

Cinnamon is a warm, medium shade of brown.

Cinnamon is darker than shades like tan and beige but lighter than chocolate or true brown. Its warm undertones mean the hue can sometimes look red or orange-tinged. Cinnamon color looks fashionable, youthful and sophisticated when pared with checkered patterns and animal prints.

3 Steps to Float a TV Wall

One of the things I like to do when I design a modern space is to add more layers for depths and architectural interests. Therefore, the space will not look too plain, cold and boring.

For San Gabriel Valley project we did, I added a white TV panel above the client’s existing white TV stand and float about 1″ from the wall, then install LED light behind of the white panel.

Here is the Before:

IMG_7971before.jpg

Here is the After:

afterlivingroom-Globalview-grey-change-1.jpg

So, here are 3 steps we did to achieve the look:

  1. Use 2×4 wood strips to build a frame onto the TV wall. The length and width of the frame are 2″ less than those of the TV white board cover.
    woodframe1.jpg2. Wrap LED tape light around the wood frame.

3. Install the white cover on the top:

You can paint it in white or cover with your favorite wallpaper. You also can use white hardboard from Home Improvement store and use end-cap around the wall panel.

Monday Inspiration–10 Living Rooms that We can Learn from

Hi, guys,  I hope your new week  started with a positive tune.  As usual, I love to share some rooms that I came across over the weekend.  The reason I share them here is not only because they are beautiful but also they are quite unique with full of good ideas and personality. Often, the rooms that touch our hearts are not the rooms that are highly polished, but rather approachable yet with some surprises.

Love this cream-on-cream neutral color palette. The low-back sectional with performance fabric here is comfy, practical yet chic and stylish. The chandelier hanging over the coffee table here is quite quirky and playful. The blush and orange patterns on the throws add a touch of softness.

Sunday Vibes

We like to take a casual walk at a neighborhood coastal resort  after a long run on Sundays. the late afternoon glow, the Mediterranean architecture details, french cafe, rose gardens, the sea not that far and the sunset…etc. are just like a dream to me.  Wouldn’t be nice to take a little get-away over the weekend to recharge once a while?

From Louis Vuitton X Exhibition to Your Patio Party

Couple of weeks ago, we went to visit Louis Vuitton X  pop-up exhibition in Beverly Hills. It is about  an immersive journey through the House’s 160-year history of creative exchanges and artistic collaborations. Discover over 180 items from Louis Vuitton’s archives.  Well, it is a quite a show and very interesting to see how they put up a fashionable color-palette , showcase their production process, iconic designs over the years and artworks. Please join me for a short tour.

The favorite part for me is actually the patio lounge area.  And when we got there, there were not many people. So I can really checked out all of the details.

First of all, I love how they use pink on the floorings and chairs—-such a cheerful color that light up everybody’s mood immediately.

And different shades and patterns of yellow and white on pillows give eye a rest and also create resort-like casual atmosphere.

Turmeric—Next Big Color Trend in 2020 Interiors

You may already see Turmeric color from runway, cars, objects, etc…  The color is kind of catch your eye now—fresh, fashionable, youthful and exciting.

Turmeric is an enlivening orange that infuses a hint of pungency into the palette (Color descriptions by The Pantone Color Institute).

A Brief Guide for Choosing your countertops—Quartz and Large-Format Porcelain

Today, I am going to continue the topic on how to choose right counter-tops for your kitchens. I talked about natural stones for countertops last week. If you haven’t read it, you can click here

Quartz

If you are the one who want modern look with less care but still want some natural elements, quartz countertops  are  the kind for you.

Quartz are engineered stone products  consisting of about 95-percent ground natural quartz and other materials with 5-percent binding resins. Here are the main features for quartz countertops:

1.Moh’s scale 6.5—7

2.Engineered from natural materials(Quartz) and added polymers, pigments and resins.

3. Engineered to be heat, scratch, pitch and stain resistant (but not bulletproof)

4. Mild soap and warm water to clean

5. Polished and textured finishes

6. Kitchen and bath applications

7. Not acceptable for outdoor applications.

Not all quartz countertops are created equal. The main players include: Silestone, Cambria, and Caesarstone.

Large-Format Porcelain

Large format porcelain tiles are really hitting the countertop market with their versatile designs now thanks to the advanced digital print technologies. Composed of clays and minerals fired at very higher temperatures, porcelain is a durable surface and is on the rise for use in kitchens and bathrooms.

Slabs of porcelain can come in sizes as large as 10’ x 5’, though they can be custom ordered to be much bigger or smaller. One of the most notable qualities of these slabs that you might discover in person is how thin they are. Measuring just 6-12mm in thickness, they automatically become some of the easiest and most lightweight materials to work with.

Here are some features of porcelain countertops:

  1. Moh’s scale: 7—9

2. Engineered material

3. The hardest, most heat, scratch and stain resistant materials of all materials used for countertops.

4. Mild soap and warm water to clean

5. Polished and textured finishes

6. Kitchen and bath applications

7. Indoor and outdoor application

8. Commercial application.

pb_LARSEN-ITOPKER-INALCO-INDUSTRIAS-ALCORENSES-CONFEDERADAS-314523-rel21367fb6.jpg

Companies such as Neolith and Florim have come out with stunning surfaces, with patterns that look almost identical to marble. Metropolitan has been fabricating full height backsplashes and full height fireplaces with large format porcelain, creating unique and beautiful spaces.

I hope you find the above information helpful

There are some protection kits. cleaning kits and pain kits you may find useful for your quartz countertop.

Happy Thursday
