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.

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

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.
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.
Go green and red palette with a touch of crystals, brass and silvers.

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.
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.
4. Yes, for your tabletop to host your beautiful fruits and nuts.

It might be a little bit late to post our Holiday ShowHouse 2018–2019. But come on, it’s still Jan of 2019 and Chinese New year is coming. So it’s time to be festive and it’s time to celebrate.
The inspiration of our Holiday ShowHouse 2018—2019 is inspired by Pantone Color of the Year 2019–Live Coral—fashionable, bold, youthful, energetic and innovative. After several years of muted color palettes, millennium pink and grey, we feel it is time to break through to celebrate holidays with something fresh. Therefore, we are able to stay prospective for the future. Meanwhiles, Holidays are truly about traditions. We mix and match traditions with modern, Live Coral with vintage pink, emerald green with hot pink, camel with purple, Chinoiserie accessories with minimalism furniture, geometric patterns with classic forms and fine crystals with organic ceramic. The end result of this year’s holiday show house decoration is fun, edgy, playful yet still elegant and sort of traditional. Enjoy!
