As part of signature 18th century colonial colors, this Prussian Blue truly lighted up my Monday.

This morning, I came across the blog by Quintessence —At Home in Colonial Williamsburg with Anthony Baratta.

The brass sculptures of tea drinking Chinese men, named “Hyson” and “Bohea” were inspired by 18th-century tea accoutrements held by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, for Chinese teas were popular in 18th-century Virginia. The historical impact of tea cannot be understated. British demand for tea wares sparked the Industrial Revolution, and a British tax on tea led to the American Revolution. Colonial Williamsburg’s bountiful collections of 18th-century tea wares – made to accommodate the new social ceremony?which are designed with a “Trend Meets Tradition” approach that keeps them fresh. The English have been smitten with Asian goods and designs “in the Chinese taste” since Catherine of Braganza brought a dowry of Asian trade routes to her marriage to King Charles II of England in 1662. The WILLIAMSBURG “Bohea” and Hyson” sculptures were motivated by a print in the Colony. Get the Price

An Elegant Powder Room in Blue-and-White

Here is the recent powder room we did for the Orange County Hill house. Different from super contemporary entry, we create more traditional vibes for this powder room to give that warmth and inviting feel. The crisp contrast between blue and white and touch of brass on the hardwares  make the space so elegant, light and airy with a right dose of glamour.

Guest Bedroom in Fresh Muted Pink

We blogged that Benjamin Moore’s color of the year 2020–First Light, if you haven’t read our blog, please click here to read And we think the color is pretty neutral yet moody and can be an elegant backdrop for any interiors.  In Orange County Hill Project, we painted Client’s guest bedroom in kind of similar pink color—neutral yet elegant and sophiticated:

The light warm pink create such a dreamy atmosphere.

5 Ways to Create a Soothing Bedroom

A master-bed is where we rest ,wind down and have a good night sleep. Here are 5 ways to create a soothing and relax atmosphere for a bedroom:

Masterbed2

  1. Have a neutral color palette and have something in pale blue since blue color always calms us down.
  2. Have linen beddings since their cloudy appearance is good for layering to create super comfy and soft vibes.
  3. Have a lot of natural light.
  4. Have fresh flowers.
  5. Have something wood and brass to add a touch of warmth and elegance to the space.

6 Ways to Create an Enveloped Cozy Dining Room

In case you don’t have that much natural light in your dining room, it will be a perfect time to create an intimate dining space with an enveloped jewel-box specially when the chill weather is coming. We did the exact same thing for the dining room in the hill house in Orange County.  Here are the 3 tips how we did:

 

diningroom7.jpg

Here are the 3 tips how we did:

  1. Have a dark monochrome color platte on the walls and flooring.
  2. Use crisp white marble and cream upholstered chairs to create a nice contrast.
  3. Have a good lighting design: the over-sized drum chandelier is the focal point of the whole room.
  4. Have a jewel-tones tablewares and decor objects to dress up the table—we use some glass pumpkins for the seasonal fall decor.
  5. Use upholstered folding screens to invite warmth.
  6. Have a touch of gold like the way we use on the picture frame and brass candle holder.

4 Ways to Create an Fall Decor in the Entry with a Wow Factor

Fall decor is all about layers and colors. So I feel it is an exciting season to create something fresh, warm and inviting in the chilled weather.  At the end of the day, we all love to come back a beautiful home and rest well. Plus, as we all know, the holiday season is approaching.  So we can always start somewhere to make some changes.  Since we are on the way to wrap our hill project in Orange county, I am going to talk about fall decor we incorporated for the entry.

As you can see the house has a white crisp and clean-lined  walls and ceilings and they are providing the perfect backdrop for the bold abstract artwork and jewel-tone decor objects.  Here are 3 ways that we create this fall decor:

entry3.jpg

  1. Mix-and-match: The modernized regency dark walnut center table is such a nice contrast with the white contemporary architecture. The bold abstract art  is toned down a little bit by  the classical blue-striped wallpaper making the space more livable.
  2. A touch of gold: The brass mid-century chandelier and brass candle holders on the center table add a touch of glamor to the space.
  3. Use upholstered pieces: The Upholstered screen and ottomans soften  the  contemporary entry.
  4. Have some signature seasonal pieces: Yes, velvet pumpkins with our favorite fall colors indicate it is about time to celebrate the harvesting.

5 Non-Traditional Fall Entry Door Decor

In case, you cannot wait to update your front door decor for the fall season but rather stay away from traditional super saturated fall-color scheme, I have 5 ideas for you.

  1. Paint your door with navy blue, mint blue, grey blue  or all sorts of blue color and do have your favorite pumpkins since orange-blue color palette is chic, modern and fashion-forward. By the way, blue, navy blue and mint blue will be trendy for the next several years and those shades are versatile with different styles.bo1472220882049bofall-porch-decor-plaid-rug-1560179524Front door with Halloween decorationsboMy-Indigo-and-Orange-Fall-Front-Porchbost-lucia-teal
