This house is an exquisite 1890 Victorian with  adorned exterior, period molding, and original brickwork in San Francisco .  It is owned by candy store co-owner Alan Ledford.  Let’s take a home tour of some of our favorite spaces.

Tim McGraw, Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong and Sam Smith also performed, while Demi Lovato, Lizzo and Lady Gaga made special appearances during the evening encouraging fans with messages of hope and positivity.

1. The navy blue sofas are the most popular ones in these celebrities home.

Alicia Keys’ mid-century navy blue tufted sectional is chic, comfy and stylish. An orange pillow just adds a perfect pop of color. The navy blue in the artwork over the sectional and her piano continue the blue theme. Then a wood oval mid century modern coffee-table breaks the navy blue theme and let the eye take a rest.

Home Tour—a Charming Californian Abode

 

With bombarded news on Cov-19 on  everyday, we are eagerly looking for some beautiful design that wow us and let us get away for a while yet still let us feel relevant and the comfy of home. Then we came across this redesign of a Newport home by Peter Dunham on Veranda Magazine.  We got to know Pete through his fascinated textile collections —bright colors, sophisticated patterns , layered casual and vintage vibes , and his inspirational story how he got evolved to design  from real estate industry.

 

The house is located in Newport,  California  and the home owners bought it more than 25 years ago. Not satisfied with the limited nature light thanks to the house’s traditional  L shape, the home owners did several remodeling throughout years.  and now theirs kids are all grown up and they would like to have some new exciting changes to start their new chapter in life. . The wife is gardener and love cooking.  She entertains a lot outdoors.  So, let’s have a tour on this charming adobe together.

 

dunham-pool-california-1582322199

Architect Bob White of Forest Studio did such a great job by moving  the footprint forward on the lot to embrace a pool and open up more outdoor living and entertaining areas.  In the picture above, we love how the new-built white pool house are against against a backdrop of big pines and eucalyptus just like a dreamy English country house.

 

 

dunham-living-room-california-1582561963

And for indoors, the home owners hired Pete Dunhum to re-imagine their house because they love how he layers vintage with contemporary art.  In the picture above of living room, we can see a large  contemporary artwork by Jennifer Bartlett nicely contrasts  with an antique mantle, vintage Syrie Maugham armchairs  and a round ottoman which  make the space collected and rooted.

 

dunham-seating-nook-california-1582322278

From the picture above, this is totally Peter Dunham’s signature style—-vibrant Indian textiles, exotic furniture pieces all mix up with soft British parsley roman shades, mid-century modern wall cones in a warm and feminine backdrop of  a warm peach wall paint.  The color palette in this room is pulled out from a contemporary artwork on the wall to guarantee a cohesiveness in this space.  We love the vibrant English cottage vibe in this space.

 

dunham-kitchen-california-1582322063

This all-white kitchen is definitely our favorite. The all-white color palette keeps the cool of a beach house while the natural wood on the chairs and hardwood flooring invite warmth to this kitchen.  A custom-made brass-steel island range-hood is a focal point of the kitchen and also indicates that the wife is a serious cook.

 

dunham-potting-shed-california-1582322254

Now it comes outdoor.  We love this cute  planting nook  under the poolhouse stairs with a window to usher light into the workspace.

Textiles on this outdoor blue-stone banquette are just as sophisticated as indoors.

With Spring  approaching, we are more obsessed to light and airy home interiors. And what really made us want to talk about today’s home(located at Park Ave.), besides its lightness, is its way to masterfully bring past and present together with the charm of East Coast sophistication.

This  Park Avenue abode gets an airy update by American renowned interior design firm Kemble Interiors. Celerie Kemble, the founder of  Kemble Interiors, is well known for her signature style of whimsy and color. And we will say her style also embraces maximal-ism since she is very detail-oriented in a classical way. But when she took the project with her design partner, they really listened and  incorporated  client’s minimalism aesthetic in the design and created this  whimsical  modern chic East Coast home. Let’s take look at this home together:

  1. Airy Color Palette: white-on-white wall paints with modernized classical chinoisorie and striped wallpaper treatments on the accent walls.

Park-Avenue-Traditional-Apartment-Living-Room
The wall paints, the furniture, the lamp shades and flooring are in a harmonious elegant light color palette of white,  cream, blush  and light brown while the brass on the lighting fixtures and coffee tables  add touch of glamor.  Greenery and fresh flower arrangements make this living space alive.  The colors in furnishings of this living room actually were pulled out from a modernized chinoiserie wallpaper on a accent wall.  What we want to mention here is the modern classical chandelier hanging over the living room ceiling, if this is a west coast home, this light fixture might go super minimalism style.  This is where we see the decor difference between East Coast and West Coast.

2. Bring the past and present together : One of the way to bring the past and present together is to modernize classical furniture and let them stand out in a light muted  backdrop.

We came across an article on Architect Digest this morning talking about the renovation of a prewar apartment channeling old-School New York. We fell in love with this newly remodeled NYE home immediately thanks to its muted pearl-on-pearl color palette. This soothing off white color palette with subtle shimming pearl  undertone creates a very calming and elegant atmosphere through the house. Because the home owner and design team have kept some of its classical bone, we are please to see  eye-pleasing classical design details at the mantle, bathroom and kitchen …etc. So, today, we are going to use this NYE pre-war apartment makeover as a before-and-after case study to share our take-aways on small-space makeover.

1. Choose a warm light neutral color palette.

The colorful books on the white bookcase, the dark brown and black on the dining furniture and light fixture anchor and elevate the space.

2. Dining and Living Area.

Before:

Before: dining room and living room are 2 separate small rooms without smooth flow.

After:

The design team combined the dining and living rooms  to form one larger space.

SE_Prospect_Park_West_Living_045

This is a small apartment about 1,200-square-foot s featured a restrictive layout, and lacked the unique character. So the  design team decided to focused on simplifying the home’s layout by combining the dining and living rooms  to form one larger space. Additionally, three elegant archways were installed to encourage a sense of symmetry. And you can see one of the archways from the above picture. The pearl-on-pearl color palette here reflects the classic vibe of the apartment and also serves as a perfect backdrop for modern furniture and furnishings. We love several textures inter-playing at this space—elegant marble, wool area rug , soft linen fabric on the sofa, wood frames on the furniture and polished chrome metal legs of the marble dining table.  The oversized black artwork anchors and elevates the space while an one-of-the-kind mid-century modern chandelier over the dining table is a huge wow factor.

2. Kitchen

Before:

A tiring and dated small kitchen

After:

SE_Prospect_Park_West_Kitchen_004
An  custom Moroccan  Tadelakt plaster backsplash adds a touch  of old-world charm to this newly modernized light-filled space.

SE_Prospect_Park_West_Kitchen_016
Storage was shifted to one side of the kitchen so the other side could remain airy.

 

You can tell that the old kitchen was tired and dark. So one of the successful strategies to renovate a small and dark kitchen to make it bigger and brighter is to streamline the layout first.  We have done that many times. The design team for this NYE project got rid of wall cabinets on the stove side which really helps open the kitchen and keep the storage on another side with adding tall cabinets. We love the old-world charm Tadelakt plaster on the stove side. And the French vintage range adds a dose of glamor  to the kitchen. in order to enlarge the kitchen visually, lighter wide oak planks replaced original narrow busy wood flooring. So our suggestion here is L: don’t be afraid to use large wood planks or large-format tiles in a small space. They actually  dramatically make the space looks a lot of bigger and UN-fussy.

3. Bathroom

Before:

a cramped bathroom with a French classical bone.

After:

SE_Prospect_Park_West_Master_Bathroom_022SE_Prospect_Park_West_Master_Bathroom_016

The issue for the old bathroom is that  the space is a little bit cramped. In order to guarantee the comfy of usinh this bathroom, the best strategy in this kind of situation  is propally to re-figure the layout if the budget is allowed. The design team created a wet zone with separated shower and tub.  Then, we feel this bathroom is a breathable space.  We love the idea of changing black frames of the window to white.  The white window frames together with   newly added white-framed panels open and light  up the upper space of the bathroom while the black hexagon mosaic tiles anchor this space.

4. Fireplace.

 

We don’t have the before photo for the fireplace.  But we really love how the design team did this fireplace—the beautiful Calacatta marble on the surrounding of the fireplace, a muted color palette, and a custom artwork that actually hides away a TV. We are usually not a big fan of any cabinet or panels that are designed to hide away a TV. But this project is different. The artwork  quietly seamlessly blends in the wall. It is so minimal and sleek. You couldn’t tell it actually hide away a TV if you  are not told so.

Las Vegas Winter Market 2020 Trip VII–Eataly

—–This site contains affiliate links to products. We may receive a commission for purchases made through these links but you don’t need to pay any extra cost. 

One of our Vegas trip for Winter Market 2020 is Eataly, a vibrant Italian marketplace located inside Park MGM that features an array of cafés, counters, bars, restaurants, and market.  Eataly in Park MGM is the sixth U.S. location and 37th in the world. The first one opened in January 2007 in Torino, Italy. The name is a combination of Eat and Italy.

Well, our first impression is this Eataly in Vegas is so un-Vegas, which we love it very much.  The market is located in such a big hall with a tall ceiling. So there are a lot of natural light.

At the entrance.

Eataly, Las Vegas,   is comprised of more than a dozen authentic Italian eateries and hundreds of high-quality products,  offering visitors the opportunity to eat, shop, and learn their way through one of the greatest cuisines in the world under a single roof.

For us, we just love to check out the restaurant interiors in such a limited time.

As you can see from these photos, mid-century modern furniture really takes the lead here.   They are cozy, simple yet chic and elegant, which really put you a pleasant mood once you are here.

Love these emerald Green mid-century modern bar chair.

And there are pops of color.
