6 ways to Master the Art of Mixing and Matching for Your Home Decor

We often have fun to mix  high and low, old and new and of course different aesthetics. Mixing of all kinds will add interest and character into the space.  In order to keep the cohesive vibe overall, we will have to  use some common elements to thread through the different layers.  And  here is the case study for the corner space for the project we recently designed. We would like to create a chic, fresh, elegant, polished decor  style while still keeping it inviting and cozy.  Here is how we did it—today, we are going to share 6 tips on how we artfully mix high and low, modern and classical, old and new to achieve this goal.

  1. Rule #1, always keep an overall color palette  neutral if you are going to take a mix& match approach.

8 Tips to Refresh Your Small Spaces

The beginning of the new year is a great time to create a new look for your home. How excited it is! Today we are going to  share 8 tips to fresh up your small spaces. But first of all, we will need to have a right mindset—a small space can have a big style.  We guess you are with us. So please read on and see if any of the following advises can be of  help to you.

 

Step 1:  Choose a small space that you use daily and need an update to make this space organized and stylish so you feel your life can be on the track in 2020. They can be your kitchen open shelves, your pantry, your powder room, your entry,…etc.  And of course your dress room. You may say that I don’t have a room for dressing up myself. That is ok. It can be a corner of your bedroom or your closet or your master bath.  What ever it is, we will need some essentials to make things happen. All right, so today we are going to use dress room or dress space as a case study.

 

We actually just re-designed this dress room from  a closet. A good thing about this closet is that it has a tall window. So step 2 to  transform any small space is to bring in a lot of natural light if you are lucky. If that is not your case, you always can throw in some table lamps, floor lamps or indirection LEDs to create pretty cozy atmosphere.

dressuproom2020-1.jpg

 

Step 3 is to have a fresh paint for your small space. A new coat of paint will change your space in a second.  If your small space has a lot of light, we recommend to go for light color just like we did for this small dress-up room. And if your small space is a complete dark space without any window, we recommend to use rich tones to create an enveloped jewel box. So you can totally relax there with your weekend home-made cocktails or Kabucha tea.

Step 4: Upholster anything you have in that space, it can be a vanity chair , a makeup desk or a bench. You can even add some trims for your upholstered piece just like  the way we added  Grace key trims for the below makeup desk.  The trim detail will uplift  your small space in a big way.

Step 5: Layer up different styles and different elements to make your small space fun and interesting with your personality. We add a pretty modern pillow in this dress room to break away from the dressy style and still have the pillow in blush color to keep the cohesive vibe.

Step 6: Have sparkling crystals to make your small space dazzling.

Step 7: Have some fresh flowers or preserved flowers to make your small space alive.

Step 8: Yes, art please.

We  feel pretty excited to see how these stars dressed in  Classic Blue on the Academies.  It is fresh and cool. As you can tell, Classic Blue can be elegant, sexy, noble, royal, or handsome and fashion-forward. The color really makes stars look fabulous on the red carpet.

And we round up some interiors featured with Classic Blue to pair with  the above blue outfits. From lacquered midnight walls to sumptuous cobalt textiles, this timeless hue has exploded back onto the design scene in rich iterations. The royal shade’s ability to be both cool and serene or punchy and loud has made it a reliable go-to for designers.

How Do Celebrities Design Their Home

At the beginning of the year, you are properly planning to renovate your home in 2020. So we gather some information here on how celebrities design their home. Design for Entertaining “I entertain for a living, and I entertain,” Jennifer Aniston told AD in 2010, on a tour of her Beverly Hills mansion. “The house has a rather glamorous, old-fashioned Hollywood quality,” she said at the time. “I can just imagine the Rat Pack stopping by; someone is playing the piano, and people are laughing in the next room.” Her home was meticulously designed with warm woods, shag rugs, and Asian influences like koi ponds and a cascading chandelier—and Aniston said she wanted the house to feel like “a big hug. People can get so distracted by static, I love the silence here.” Jennifer%2520Aniston.jpg Warm, Inviting just like an oil painting You can click here to read our blog on one of Aniston’s home. Pocket Door and Pink Glass Obsession “I have a pocket door obsession, and a pink glass obsession,” Tyler told AD in 2019, on a tour of her West Village townhouse, which she’s owned since 2001. After a gut renovation, Tyler installed many pocket sliding doors, to allow for privacy or more open, free-flowing spaces. And on the top master floor, she put in a unique skylight. “I decided I wanted to put in this pink tinted glass, and everyone thought I was crazy, but it gives such an amazing warm light to the space.” In the airy master bathroom, she put in sliding pocket doors with pink textured glass panes, combining her two favorite things. Liv20Tyler Pocket doors and pink accents in Liv Tyler’s New York townhouse.
Photo: Max Burkhalter Perfectly Calm and Peaceful. When Jenner took AD on a tour of her new Hidden Hills, California, home in 2019, it was a tranquil, spalike wash of whites, grays and blues, with plenty of plants and contemporary artwork. “My job is so hectic and chaotic. I’m always running a million miles an hour. I wanted my home to feel like a sanctuary, perfectly calm and peaceful,” she explained. “I love a really open floor plan because it makes me feel really zen and relaxed…and colors [like this] just make me feel so calm.” Kris_Jenner.jpg Tranquility was top of mind for Jenner as she designed her space.

Our Christmas Tabletop 2019

Hi, guys, happy Boxing Day. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day. In US, we are back to work today and in UK, I guess your guys may have a crazy shopping day today just like the way we are on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. I did both and quite understand that hectic shopping experiences. If the physical shopping is not your thing( I know some of you may really enjoy that), I have something quite special for you today. But first thing first, I would love to show your our Christmas table because tabletop setting is always one of my favorites to do during  the holidays. I just purely love all of the creative processes.

  1. The flowers and greenery for our Christmas tabletop—yes, they are garden-fresh and are all from our backyard. I used Juniper branches, lemons, lemon leaves, camellias, red Christmas berries.  They really help make such a lush and festive centerpiece for our Christmas tabletop.  I love  fresh real plants, branches and flowers. The natural smell always make me feel we are hosting a party in an outdoor wonderland.

2. Vintage plates.  It is quite special to use some vintage plates on Christmas day to show off our special dishes.  I always appreciate the details on those vintage pieces.

Inspired by Pantone color of the year 2020—Classic Blue, we would like to featured this dark blue shade on our holiday table-top. Opposite to the traditional green and red color palette, the blue  color palette does deliver a super chic festive feel. And Waterford’s crystal glasses add a touch of glamor to the table.   Meanwhile nutcrackers in navy blue and white uniforms talk to blue on Wedgwood’s fancy  dinnerwares and Waterford’s dazlling blue holiday wine glasses. So the tables-cape we created for this year’s Christmas is elegant, sophisticated, chic and modern.  A pop of red fresh flower centerpiece anchors the whole table and adds another  happy and  cheerful layer.

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.
