Throw Back Thursday

Here is one of the photos we took for the project  we did several years ago.  It is a whole-house interior design project. It is a traditional home, yet we incorporated  a lot of modern elements like neutral color palettes, clean-line furniture and furnishings and of course modern art. The renown Dutch designer Marcel Wanders said: “Designers and people in general are too attracted by ‘new’, but nothing ages more quickly than ‘newness’. All my objects reflect [a] marriage between past and present.”  We couldn’t agree him more.

9 Ideas on Making your Bedroom Look Chic, Serene and Luxurious

It has being poured hard outside since earlier this morning in Los Angeles. We guess nothing can beat staying in a warm and comfy home.  Today, we are going to talk about 9 ideas for a fresh bedroom upgrade.

1. Have a soothe and relaxing color palette.

Color Sets the Tone for Relaxation

Image3-56a529995f9b58b7d0db31d6
Cool cream—This soft, clean palette is the perfect combination of tranquility and luxury. Using fresh, white linens and a neutral palette similar to this gives your bedroom a hotel-type feel, making it easy to fall into the covers and imagine yourself somewhere far, far away.

C1Image5-56a5299b5f9b58b7d0db31dc
Soft Whites, Pinks, & Grays—Soft pinks are another favorite to use when it comes to creating a relaxing mood in the bedroom. Paired with a few simple neutrals, this pretty color is the perfect way to add a soft touch of soothing femininity to a bedroom, like this one featured on the SF Girl site.

C2Color-Lesson-from-Matri-and-Susanna-Vento-02
Blush,  cream, brown. light gray and soft white

In a bedroom, where we most need to strike a calm and relaxing chord, the color becomes an even more important part of creating a sanctuary. Picking a color that you love, and pairing it with the right secondary colors, is the best way to create a space that you will enjoy – one in which you can relax and refresh.

C435f947d56b4e0f65b92fd88642fc89e2

C51966e1f2f02a51ebed1df2b9a9a6f59d

a8d8772ac19aa442f2ebe344bdbff062

Image4-56a5299a5f9b58b7d0db31d9
There is just something about cool grays and blues that gives any room a smooth, laid-back vibe. In this bedroom featured on the SF Girl site, the paint color has a touch of purple, giving it a regal, sophisticated feel. Meanwhile, the lighter grays and whites in the space make a statement against the darker painted wall. Investing in good white bedding like this is one of the best ways to make your space feel relaxing and comfortable.

2. Add a stylish bench or a petite loveseat to the end of a bed.

One of the most practical (and therefore traditional) pieces to put at the end of a bed is a bench.  The ideal place to plop down and tie your sandals in the morning or kick them off at the end of a day.

3. Have a vanity or writing desk–a clever and pretty way to spend more time in your bedroom in a style.

If you have a small room, you can think about replacing your regular nighstands with a sleek writing desk or vanity desk.

4. Upgrade  your hanging light fixtures.

A unique hanging light fixture often adds a sophistication layer to  a bedroom.  Hang the chandelier over the center of the bed. Shorten the chain, so the bottom of the chandelier hangs seven feet above the floor. For ceilings higher than nine feet, consider hanging a two-tier chandelier, so the room doesn’t overpower the chandelier.

5. Hang a pair of smaller chandeliers at each bedside and save precious space on the top of bedside tables. For the most benefit when reading in bed, hang each fixture 20-30 inches above the nightstand so it rests at about the same place as a standard bedside table lamp.

6. Over-filled pillows on your bed.

There’s something so luxurious about plush, overfilled throw pillows, which go a long way in transforming your bedroom from “everyday” to a bonafide retreat that emulates the most sumptuous of hotels.

7. Incorporate a rug. Adding texture and warmth to your bedroom is one of the easiest ways to boost its style factor. Whether you’re partial to florals or understated designs, like jute, a chic rug can pull your bedroom together in an instant.

8. Display some artworks.

Show off your style with a statement piece of artwork, whether it’s a sculpture, photograph, or colorful painting. While it can certainly be displayed on a wall, leaning your favorite piece against a wall can be just as powerful.

As always, the quickest and easiest way to upgrade your room from “average” to “expensive-looking” is to add some greenery. What form this takes is up to you: A large fern? Small potted plants on your dresser? No matter how, adding a few plants helps a room make the final leap to luxury.  And of course, fresh flowers will add a touch of elegance to your bedroom.

Las Vegas Winter Market 2020 Trip IV–5 Take-aways Decorative Lighting Trends

Since we had a lot of vendors needed to visit in Vegas Winter Market 2020 and we also would like to sit in the seminars to lear about what’s new in the industry, so we can only limit our time to visit couple of big lighting showrooms. Here are 5 take-away on decorative lighting trends in 2020 based on what we saw on the market.

IMG_9756
Ready for a tour?

  1. Natural and organic forms and materials. This large-size drum pendant is covered with linen and we like this relaxing, casual organic form. And  thanks to its large size, this pendant will make a focal point in any space in an elegant and calm way.

IMG_9867

 

 

2. Natural quartz crystal is still the queen in decorative lighting industry.  We had been to several large LED shows in 2019 and understand how LED transformed the whole lighting industry. But these two rock crystal LED lighting fixtures really play at a different level.  They mix old with new by bringing  LED technology to luxury design.
