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.

7 Ways to Incorporate Antiques to Interiors

Antiques can add depth, personality and timelessness to any interiors. There are 7 ways to incorporate antique to your spaces.

1. Start small.

IMG_2355
This small ornate antique mirror is very interesting and whimsical and has a nice contrast with the contemporary wall paneling.

 

2 . Have a new lamp-shade or reupholster an antique piece to make it look chic and fresh.

We particularly love this wide green banding at the bottom of the lamp-shade and it adds a touch of fresh elegance to an aged object.

A Modern Classic Dining Room

Wether it is formal, or very casual, a dining room in all kinds of styles–modern contemporary, coastal, bohemian, mid-century modern, Scandinavia  often makes a  home homy since this is the place where families get together and chill at the end of the day.  My design philosophies are: it needs to be beautiful so it can please eye and it also needs to be comfortable so we can totally relax here.

Take a peek at this our recently designed modern classic dining room.

Home Tour—Grand Bel Air Estate Designed for Family and Entertainment

We would think that decorating 20,000 square-foot estate should be a daunting work.  LA-based decorator Lonni Paul recently just transformed such  a big job for real estate developer Ted Foxman’s 20,000 square-foot Bel Air family home in a seemly-effortless way.

We mean, the house is big, just imagine  it–overlooking the expansive Pacific Ocean, eight bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms, the property is filled with just about every amenity one could desire in a forever home. The first question popping on our mind is how she started her decorating job  with such a colossal home.  Paul  is such a genius designer and is no stranger to design projects of this magnitude, as a number of her former clients have resided in areas like Saudi Arabia, where properties are typically on the larger scale.  And it also  comes down what the clients are really looking for -“We wanted a light, airy, positive energy to be everywhere—large spaces that felt cozy and comfortable, and something that was widely appealing to anyone,” Foxman says of his vision for the property. We think Paul did a fabulous job to reach her clients’ goals.  When we go through the album of the finished project, we can feel thE causal relaxing California coziness with a high style.  We specially like how she approached decoration for  the powder room and dining room—“I wanted to have some elements of surprise; spaces that were a little more offbeat than the rest of the home, but still elegant in their own way,” Paul says.

paul-stratford-powderbath3-39-edit-1578349857.jpg
We love this all black powder room featured with bird motif, black lacquered vanity and sparkling contemporary crystal wall scones.  It is quiet yet elegant and still polished.

 

 

paul-stratford-dining2-75-15-1578349853.jpg
This navy-blue enveloped dining room is warm, inviting. Two of crystal chandeliers over-hanging the dining table dazzling the whole space add a prefect  touch of glamour and luxury.

We also love kitchen, master bath , herss closet and outdoor patio. Let’s take a look :

paul-stratford-kitchen2-10-edit-1578349854.jpg
We love how dark blue tiles  on the backsplash and dining chair fabric contrast  with white crisp kitchen cabinets and vintage range hood—it’s airy, light yet still with a vibe of an eat-in kitchen –cozy and intimate.
paul-stratford-masterbath-37-v5-1578349856.jpg
A crystal chandelier and sleek built-in wall fireplace bring insophistication and warmth  into this all white modern master bath.  And we also love the large live plant in the shower.
paul-stratford-hercloset-58-v3-copy-1578349854.jpg
Who wouldn’t love this all-white elegant walk-in closet with a beautiful modern chandelier, all-glass storage cabinet and open shelves?
paul-stratford-office-0019-edit-1578349856.jpg
The office with a great view and handsome furniture like these grey velvet club chairs. We love the bird statue on the polished side table.

Do people think this is how Californians live year round?

Yes, bar carts.  They can be a very simple open shelves you just grab from Ikea or Amazon, or some fancy designer collection with gold or silver leave finishes. For whatever the style, I got you all covered today. First thing first, let’t take a look some inspirations. I guarantee these bar cart ideas will warm up your heart immediately and make you just want to jump start your own bar cart stying immediately.

So what do you think? After going through all of the above beautiful pictures,  I bet we all feel that bart carts are must-haves for our home right?  These bar carts not only serve as  decorative pieces but also a functional full bars, isn’t that cool? You can style them the way you want–classical, boho, Scandinavia modern…

And of course, we styled our bart cart for our Home for the Holidays 2019 too. Check it out:

holidaybarcart2.jpg

As you can see here , by just adding some holiday greenery, sparkling  unique wine glasses and our whiskey collections, the bar cart suddenly become our holiday decor super star.  So here are 4 ways to style your bar carts for this holiday season:

  1. Focus on essentials.  All you need are a few quality spirits to make the classics, a  good set of cocktail tools(lime squeezer, muddler, strainer, and mixing tin are key), and some interesting glassware. Plus, buying less means you can splurge on higher-quality spirits. If you have a surplus of wine or liquor, choose the best-looking bottles and store the rest in the pantry.
  2. Use pretty accessories for a layer of  Interest and playfuness. Now that you’ve got your basics, it’s time for a shot of style. Color, pattern, and texture all come into play when styling your bar car. Vintage bar accessories such as cocktail stirs or picks are also a charming addition.
  3. Go green and red palette with a touch of  crystals, brass and silvers.
  4. Pair with a stylish elegant chair or an art work to create that ultimate holiday vignette.

4 Ways to Create a Fresh Statement out of Your Crystal Pieces

Happy Friday, guys!  We were invited to different parties almost every night this week. I love those beautiful  tabletop decor on each party and really thankful the organizers put up a lot of efforts to make each party sing.  I hope I can share those photos I took from different parties soon. And I have to say that among all of the parties, the super stars are truly those crystal decor in all kinds and they elevate everyone’s mood and make the night so special and prestigious.

I remember that when I started my own design business back then, I had a client who own so many  antique crystal pieces, I was like wow those pieces were very beautiful but they were kind of old school decoration too. As I started to acquire more and more pieces for my clients and myself, I start to realize the ultimate beauty of those hand-made crystal pieces and stunned by a lot of new modern design. I then started to study what will be the best ways to display those crystal art-crafts in different interiors.  And shockingly enough, almost all of my clients no matter what styles they prefer to, they fall in love with those crystal pieces. So today, I am going to share 5 ways to display your crystal decor items and make them shine.

  1. Crystal pieces are made to shine, so please don’t hide them away or wrapped them away. Let them be who they are and shine.

2. It doesn’t matter it is a crystal bowel or crystal vase, it doesn’t matter how old  those crystal pieces are and how out-of-date they are, one of the best way to show off your crystal pieces  is  to use them for holding your fresh flowers.

3. Use your crystal bowels or vases as  candle holders. Everybody is going to love that flicking candle flames dazzling through crystals.

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
