We like to use a brass tall vase to anchor the space which also  adds a touch of luxury to the laid-back easy-breezy modern space.

8 Ways to Style Your Living Room Coffee Table

 

Don’t you agree with me that styling your own coffee table is one of the coolest things to do? Well, first of all, you’ve got chosen what sings to you–fresh flowers, books, boxes, sculptures, some emotional little objects from your grandma …etc. Then, you are able to just sit back and enjoy those lovely things. Just in case  styling is just not your thing, I have 8 tips here on how to style your living room  coffee table.

  1. Make sure you choose a cute coffee table before you style it. That will make your job more pleasant and easy.

2. Always be ready to break the traditional way–instead of just one coffee table, why not have several of them.  Having several coffee tables is a statement for your living room.coffee-table-styling-ideas-03-1507044492

3. Layer up on the height.

4. Try off the center approach like the one in the following image.

5. Do apply some rules once a while like the one in the below—triangle shape for the round coffee table styling.

6.  Using books to divide your coffee table into 3 or 4 sections.

This clean-lined, almost monochromic  dining room maybe is the best place to unwind and reflect. The light-blue  candles and a touch of mini fresh flower arrangement  create the vibes of optimistic and being present.

6 Designer Wall Covering Ideas to Uplift Your Interiors II

Hello, guys, TGIF! It’s another long and hot week. I hope everyone is still doing great!  Have you read my 6 Designer Wall Covering Ideas to Uplift Your Interiors I? If you haven’t, please click here to read And today, I am going to share the rest 3 ideas that you can do  to elevate your living space without doing big construction job.

4. Hang some artworks (or create a gallery wall) that talk to you and coordinate or uniform your current interiors. The frame, the theme, color palettes, the arrangement and how high you should hang them onto the walls all play important roles to create that pleasant artsy decor. Click here to learn some tips on how to hang your artwork like a pro.

 

SWIMG_2187
I really love how they hang this artwork on the blush wall of this pastry’s outdoor space. It is a very chic outdoor space like indoor. The pastel color palette of the artwork is similar to the blush wall background.  Yet pop of the color on the artwork  really make the whole space alive.
greyandwhiteliving-room-16-1537539404
Again, the artwork on the wall with pop of violet color adds a freshness to this monogram-themed space—chic and fashionable
project-19
One of the traditional projects we did—the liliac elegant drapes pull out the lilac and lavender colors on the artworks on the wall to create cohesive and harmonious vibe.
project-1
another project we did—the pink paint on the background wall pairing red color on lady’s dress creates very romantic, feminine feeling for the space.
IMG_2406-1
One of our project–the black and white print on the wall is calming this home office with saturated colors and bold patterns.
IMG_6846
one of our projects—the same creams color palette on the wall and in the artwork creates this  dreamy lounge area.

5. Stencil them up. You may not a big fan of wallpaper, although they are not your grandmother’s wallpaper and there are tones of cool designs out there and they are also much easier to get rid of in case you change your mind. You can stencil you walls instead. The key thing here is you’d got some patterns that work in your space and you have a good painter who know how to do a good job.

holidaymasterbath
One of our projects—instead using stripe wallpaper, we stenciled the vanity wall  with stripe pattern.
IMGP8166-1
one of our projects—the vanity wall in this powder room is tiled with  large-format tiles and mother-pearl mosaic inserts from Italy. To save the cost, we stenciled the wall on the both sides of vanity walls in light gloss gray and matte gray— subtle yet still make a statement 
stencilwall
We totally custom-made this rose stencil walls in my client’s dining room. You can click here for the details.

6. Just install an over-sized mirror to bounce light, reflect space, create a dilution of much bigger space.

6 Designer Wall Covering Ideas to Uplift Your Interiors I

If you, just like me, feel a need to reinvent your interiors every couple of years without a big construction work, please re-think about your walls. Here are 5 designer wall covering ideas to change your living space like a magic wander in a second.

  1. Fresh up your walls with a new on- the -trend paint.  You know every year Pantone and other major paint companies will introduce their color of the year. But do you know in order to figure out what is their color of the year, they have to travel thousands of miles, explore different cultures, participate countless trade shows and host many, many brain-storm meetings because everything is connected and color often reflects what people and society think, love and what drive and inspire them. Have you ever had an experience when you wake up in the morning, you are really in the mood for that pink dress or that blue tie. Yes just like that, that particular color of the year from Pantone and other major paint companies make us feel fresh, excited and inspiring in that particular year. What’s more fun is that the color of the year often come with different shades, undertones and paired with unexpected colors.

Yes, I just feel happy by wearing Pantone Color of the Year 2019–Live Coral

2. Install bold geometric pattern or elegant wallpaper such as chinossorie  if you are the one who are looking for  some luxury vibes with a high taste.

Fresh Color Schemes from Runways

 

I usually spend a big chunk of time on Saturday to catch up with what’s going on in the fashion industry just to be inspired. I love to explore the fresh color palettes from the recent runways and street styles.   Not surprisedly, when I enjoyed my organic oolong tea this morning in my backyard garden, I came across quite few exciting color palettes and some interesting ways of mix -and -match. Wow, these fresh color schemes really makes my day. Here are some of my favorites:

F1
Blue-and White in Different Patterns—cool, playful yet feminine
F2
Different Shades of Lilac in Different Textures—very interesting
F3
Pattern-on-pattern in a modern way—Strong yet Soft and feminine
F4
Muted Patels with Earthy Tones—Timeless
F5
If you like dark and neutral, a touch of muted pink just just bring the energy out.
F6
I always feel plush lilac is kind of cool with silky grey blue

 

 

F8
Earth tones with Pastels
F9
Earth Tones with Pastels

Hope you enjoy all of these. Please stay in tuned, we will bring these updated color palette to home soon.

 

Happy Saturday
