If you are like most of us who scaled back the decorations last year in light of a smaller guest lists and more understated tables, this year you probably plan to go big to make up for it. People want to show up and show out for their guests and celebrate. As a result, we are seeing bigger, bolder, and more dramatic holiday trends: show-stopping tablescapes (the bigger, the better!), nontraditional color palettes, maximalist holiday décor, checkered prints, and dried flower arrangements. From the classical elegant to modern farmhouse to coastal chic, here are 11 luxurious dining sets that will elevate your home with timelessness and a touch of sophistication.Continue reading

This six-floor, five-bedroom Upper East Side townhouse, owned by by notable art collector and philanthropist Nancy McCormick, a longtime Lawrence client who’s an American Ballet Theatre trustee and founder of the children’s clothing line Florence Fancy, was just redesigned and renovated by Mexican architect Carlos Garciavelez and New York designer David Lawrence. The home is sophiticated and sumptuous.
We love how calming and graceful Venetian plaster walls and hand-embroidered, quilted-cashmere curtains provide a perfect neutral backdrop for patterned furniture and client’s museum-worthy art. The oriental antique area rug has a subtle sheen and patterns to add an extra layer of glam. A cream mid-century chair with the sleek tapered brass legs by the classical fireplace brings in a youthful energy.Continue reading
It’s Friday. We thought it might be a good idea to tour a home with some beautiful colors. This historic home in Charlotte, North Carolina is graceful, feminine, warm, and timeless with a modern flair. we love the artisan wallpapers, textiles, old-world charming furnishings and locally crafted fine furniture used through the house. Here are the highlights of our favorites.
What makes a house home often is the coziness and warmth that we are feeling. Mid-century modern and stark minimalism have dominated our home furnishing market for a long, long time. When we pay attention to the details of these styles, the interiors usually ,from floor to ceiling, to walls , most of furniture are often hard-surfaced. They inevitably give us a very cold feeling. All of the hard-surface can hardly absorb the sounds. But textiles just do the opposite. So if we would like to create a soothing and quiet home, make sure you use different textile applications for our home. Today, we are going to talk about 7 benefits of using textiles at home.
1. They bring in fresh colors, textures and patterns. By doing so, they give depth, dimension and interest to any space. They simply make us feel excited.
After another busy week packed with endless Instagram Lives, IGTVs, Zoom meetings, designing and reading,…etc., we feel we kind of need some relaxing time in a super soothing master bath. So, what does your dream master bath look like? A relaxing color palette, a good lighting deign, natural light and some soft touches like clean-lined silky drapery panels and roman shades with elegant trims … We have it all in the below master bath we designed for the Client.
One of fun things for us to do an interior design project is to customize a piece of furniture that not only fits into client’s space, satisfies client’s needs, but also brings in intricate sophistication by focusing on details. Yes, small details truly matter and they are the final touches to create a dream home with sophisticated interiors you have being desired for many years. Those details can be if your LED chandelier is warm-dimmable, or your home office chair gives your options to recline with comfort, or the sizes of your sofa is long enough and deep enough for you and your family chill out on it or the structure and cushion of the sofa support ultimate comfort and durability.
Here is an example how we focus on the details of a lounge chair we customized for the client for her home office. The client wanted a super stylish chair she was able to seat on and relax during her stay there. And the challenge is that only space that is available is a small corner and the office door is pretty narrow for any large scale of furniture to get in. In order to satisfy client’s needs, we decided to do our own design from scratch and customized the pieces locally. There are a lot of behind-of-door work and one thing I can share here is all of the trims and piping we used on the chair, ottoman and pillow to delivery that glamorous designer-look.
We are continuing our 5 Celebrities’ Styles at Home series today to start a whole new week. Today will be our episode 2—Tony Burch at Home. You can click here to read episode I.

New York Apartment
Artfully layered furnishings, each in vibrant shades of red, orange or green, sit by opulent wallpaper or deco-style monochrome walls. Prints—of flora and fauna, geometric, all ebullient—are recurring fixtures. So are artworks, both large and small, Chinese pottery and old collectables. The overall effect is a luxurious riot of bright hues and patterns. “It’s eclectic,” says Burch, “and very much me.”
“I’m not a big collector, not compared to them at least. What I have always liked about my parents is how they used to gather things together, and in the house, not because of their value but because of their style and beauty. I try to do the same with the items I purchase. I just love mixing pieces from different periods. The old with the new.”
Chelsea Handler’s Bel Air home has a good location with a beautiful lush hillside landscape. Chelsea Handler bought this home 10 years ago. And she took a lot of efforts to modernize this home, bright it up by using a lot of light colors, and at the same time, make it warm, inviting and cozy enough to entertain her friends and family here. We are totally obsessed with the breath-taking California vibe she has crafted throughout the years–soft, bright, airy, modern and relaxing indoor-outdoor style. She has a lot of artworks in her house either she purchased by herself over the years or the gifts from her friends. And she said she usually doesn’t have any idea about those artwork until several years later. Isn’t that cute?
We summarize several design highlights we really like about her home below. So get ready for a cup of coffee, tea or glass of wine, sit back and enjoy.
1. Replace some of the walls with floor-to-the-ceiling glass windowpanes to bring in more nature light to create that typical California indoor-and-outdoor vibe.
