4 Fresh Ways To Display Your China Collections

Ways Dishware has developed a renewed kind of cultural cachet and social media feeds everwhere are filled with eye-cathing tablescapes and place settings thanks to our spending more time at home. Suddenly, china was no longer something registered for before a wedding or reluctantly inherited from Granny—it had become an extension of your outfit, part of one’s personal style. It seems that a lot of stlye icons are full-on obsessed with their dishes.

But one sad thing about the fine china is that people usually store them away in the cupboard when it is out of holiday season and there is no party around. As time goes by, you may forget they are there. So these beauiful plates sit somewhere unseen , unused and unappreciated. But in the reality, these beauiful plates can actually transform your home magically thanks to their colors, textures, design patterns and shapes. Today we are going to share 5 fresh ways to to display your china in your everyday’s life.

  1. You can just keep a few pieces of fine china on your dinning table to create a very homey, casual and relaxing atmosphere that invites you to take a seat at any time.

Tour A Sophisticated Yet Livable Portland Oregon Home

It is an art to make a home both sophiticated and livable. Luckily, we came across such a home when we searched inspiration today. The house is located in the historic northwest Portland neighborhood of Kings Heights. It took five years to complete the interiors of this 1922 Federal-style 5,400-square-foot house. The design team did such a great work to find a way to make the home feel open…while still respecting the period of the house.

5 Living Room Trends in 2021

With spring just around the corner, in case you are planning to refresh up the home, today we are going to share 5 trends for living room in 2021.

  1. Warmer color palettes. As we spend more time at home than ever before, we pay more attention to our home and color nomally comes first. Color often affects how we feel–light, happy, moody, romantic and enveloped. A warmer color palette is on-trend in the year of 2021 since warmer color tones make us feel cozy, relaxing, safer and grounded.

Oatmeal, chocate brown , tan and cream combined with plush textiles create a very comfy environment for us to lean to, rejuvenate and get away specially in the uncertain times.

2. Green starts to pop up among natural earthy tones to enliven any space –a hopeful message to look upto the bright future.

3. Old-world charm. Instead of stark minimalism or mid-century modern, the furnishings with old-world charm and vintage vibes are becoming the star since they bring us a sense of comfort and famililarity in the uncertain time. It is also because we are intending to create a more interesting living space by adding details to please our eye. Pieces like heir-loom antiques, classical-framed artwork, skirted table-cloth, ruffled sofa covers, vintage area rugs, unique classical-form chairs, chinoserie wallpaper, antique mirrors will help create an unique and personalized living space to enjoy.

3 Ways to Create a High-style Home You Dream About

 

The more time you spend at home, the more you are likely to notice some detail you don’t like and you want to do something about it. In case after 6-weeks of quarantine, you kind of develop a big plan to elevate your home and feel a little bit overwhelmed, don’t worry, we have 3 simple rules you may want to consider and we will use one of the projects we did as a case study:

 

  1. Choose a color palette you love and repeat it through the whole house in an unexpected yet classy way. We repeat the color palette of pink and green through the whole house in this project in the above video.

2. Own one or two pieces you really treasure and  showcase or design around them. The custom-made Murano table lamp with a pink shade, the artwork and green velvet bar chairs in the above video are  what my client really falls in love with and they are the focal points in her home.

3. Mix and match pieces from different styles and periods to keep the overall design interesting and timeless.  In the video above, Louis XVI bar chairs are  classical while the green midcentury chairs in the family room is mid-century,  which creates such a  nice contrast with all of the traditional components in the house.

 

Hope these decor tips are helpful.
