Hi, guys, we blogged Pantone’s Classic Blue on Christmas Decor and it got a lot of views since it was posted yesterday. Today, we are going to talk about Classic Blue in fashion.

“Over the last few years, a number of different colors have reigned supreme. Millennial pink got the ball rolling (and boy did it roll), followed by Gen Z yellow, slime green, and Aperol orange. But now as Pantone released Color of the Year 2020, we guess we have a fresh stable color to try on. You may think Classic Blue is boring, but as we look certain color more and more, we find beauty and start fall in love with it. From our opinion, Classic Blue is royal and noble.  just see how Kate Middleton wears this particular color and how Ralph s Lauren still remains an important player with its signature blue in the fashion and home industries.
Pantone chose Classic Blue for its dependability and stability, two qualities people crave when crossing the threshold into a new era. “Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color, Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge,” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute said. “It fosters resilience.”

We like the tailored long coat in Classic Blue with the soft-looking light-blue hat and scarf acupuncted by black. The overall-looking transfers the spirit of confidence, courages and determination.

Florals for Spring

 

I am always looking for inspiration from my surroundings, nature, tech, art… And , of course, the fashion.  I am so so fascinated by this week’s Paris Couture Fashion Show. It is the best time to stretch one’s  imagination.   Don’t you agree with me?

One of my favorites is Valentino Couture.  The house designer Pierpaolo Piccioli truely took ‘ Florals for Spring’ to a new level.  It is beyond ordinary beautiful.  From the fresh color palettes to romantic dreamy floral patterns, these designs are such joyful eye candies.  It looks like the designer brought a spring garden to runway.  I couldn’t wait to share them with you:

7 Ways to Dress Up Your Breakfast Nook

tuesday811f1f92c3c6e3be2ea7fb60fef7f50c.jpg

Breakfast nook is such a cozy place where the family can hang out casually at any time during the day.  Maybe it can be your great work station if you just happen to work at home.  My favorite part is sitting in a sun-soaked nook area and look out of the windows in the earlier mornings and evenings.  In Southern California, the views of greeneries and flowers in the garden are always stunning.   For most people, this is the place to start and finish the day.  Therefore, we have to make it beautiful to enjoy and cozy to relax.  Here are 5 ways to create such a casual elegant nook:

  1. Build a tufted banquette  along the window and throw in some fun pillows;
  2. Have different styles of chairs along the breakfast table by using different textiles, patterns and colors.  But make sure to still keep everything cohesive;
  3. Use some cool wallpapers or wall treatment techniques to make this area outstanding and special;
  4. Choose an over-sized chanderlier to make a statement and make the space intimate;
  5. Have fresh flowers to light up your mood.
  6. You may have to do some garden works to keep the beautiful outdoor scenery.
  7. Make the ceiling unique.  Therefore, you are not only able to look out but also to look up.  How fun it is!
