Lavender is Ladylike


Wouldn’t you agree with me that lavender is ladylike ?  It’s refreshing, chic and elegant.  It’s a symbol of spring garden.  When it reaches middle of February we are really looking forward to spring.  Lavender , blush, pale blue with the pops of bright yellow and  pink truly make this living room a heaven.  Mix-and-match of chinoiserie, stripes and bold exquisite geometric pattern on the sofa trims make the room formal, sophisticated and whimsical.

A Mix-and-Match Living Room

From beginning of the year, we truly have fun to mix and match the room designs for the projects.  There are several key factors to bring everything together with harmony in a depth:

  1. Repeat the color palette to get the flow going.
  2. Use same colors but in different shades.
  3. Use same colors but in different textures.
  4. Laying the room to bring interest and depth to the room.
  5. Always pick up colors from area rugs or artworks for the rest of furnishings.
  6. Muted neutrals provide the best backdrop.

Here is a living room we just designed.  The patterns, textures and colors in the artwork is the key to inspire the overall decor.

 

Happy Tuesday

A Living Room Vignette Inspired by Pantone Fall 2016 Colors

September is here!  Times just goes so fast.  I still feel we just started a new 2016.  And now it’s September!   When fall starts, we are naturally attracted to the saturated warm colors.   I am on the same path, too.   I like colors.   Inspired by Pantone Fall 2016 colors,  we created room vignettes for 2016 fall season.  I am so excited to share with you right here.  On today’s blog, I am going to show you a super warm, fashionable and chic living room by using Pantone Spicy Mustard, Aurora red, Riverside and Airy Blue.

Spicy mustard is warm and inviting just like the sunlights in the fall.    We light it up a little bit and used it on the paneling walls paired it with bold Aurora Red on a channel-back long sofa with fringe trims.  The whole theme is now becoming chic and sexy.  The living room is no longer grandma’s yellow sunny room, but with a touch of Hollywood glamor. Both Riverside and Airy Blue are accents colors in this room.  We used them on the table lamp, decorative objects to infuse the space with some cool fresh feelings.  Here is the room:

We have talked about this sofa on our blog before.  Now we used in this room.  Again, channel-back sofa is in and we love the vintage yet still very modern and feminine feeling.

The floral pattern upholstered chair is so elegant and feminine.  The shades of pink, red, green, blue and yellow on the chair create a such nice contrast with saturated mustard and red colors. Don’t you agree that althrough we are attracted to warm fall colors in the Fall season, we still desire  a chill of spring feel?  So why not make it happen in our home?

The gilded bench picks up the mustard color from the wall.  Now we see there is a conversation going on.

The dark brown shade on iron chandelier kind of balances off  the saturated warm colors in the space yet the sparkling crystals on the lighting still emphasize the elegance .  The clean-line shape of the chandelier is a nice contrast with the curved sofa and bench.

The chevron pattern  lamp shades  are custom-made.  The pattern adds youthfulness to the space to make it fun and playful.

This client’s original living room had a mixing style.  The original drapery was quite old-school and sofa was  Italian modern.  After talking to the client and getting to know what she favors, we decide a modern classic style for this room.  Here is what we did:

  1. Use brass drapery rod to give the window treatment a clean modern classic feeling.
  2. Pale-blue french-pleatED silk drapery truly upgrades  the room and adds a touch of classy to the space.
  3. The upholstered earthy-tone velvet clean-line tuxedo sofa is chic, modern yet inviting.
  4. The modernized alabaster  table lamp a with light gold silk shade nicely blends in the new soft  color palette.
  5. The pop of pillow colors and patterns truly made the room alive and fashionable.

The end result is such a adorable living room with a feminine touch.  and it is youthful, light  and interesting.
