The Colorful Urban Landscape of DTLA

 

DTLA has being gone through the major transformation within last several years. Every time, we are here, we always can see something new and feel something new.   So it is pretty exciting experience to explore new DTLA for food, cafe, architectures, boutique hotels, museums, etc.  And often the landscape of the mix -and- max of the new with historical buildings make the city so charming.

We were recently invited to a preview party of new property in China Town which is really close to city hall. The property is multi-purpose combining  with retails and residential. I am pretty amazed by how they use the color, patterns and mid-century furniture they choose.

The property has several buildings featured cheerful bright color blocks.

When you enter the 4th floor lobby, you see this kitchen first. First of all, I really like the color palette they chose here–cool high-glossy navy blue on the cabinetry with warm textured brown copper tiles on the wall and floor. The white quarts countertop finishes the whole vignette look with a touch of fresh modern crispness. Second of all, I quite like how they design the shelving box around the fridge—it’s kind of not that serious but pretty stylish and thoughtful  vibe.  Yes, a good work flow, plenty of countertops and relax vibes often create a dream place to host a big social party.

Here is a huge industrial chandelier at one of the entries. One of the cool features for this property is how they mix and match different styles of lighting fixtures which makes ceilings and vertical spaces so interesting.  Different layers of lighting design make your eyes always look up and move around and find that unique object.

These playful pendants hanging over the large table in the lobby contrasts with the masculine chandelier by the entry we were just talking about above.

This is another example how they mix different styles of light fixtures.

A perfect picture frame. Now you know Pantone Live Coral really plays big this year.

And of course, I cannot miss a  great selfie opportunity with this colorful and alive  urban landscape.

And here is one I stand outside on the roof of the building.

These cute pool side chairs carry Brazilian cheerful vibes and you feel they invite you  to have a seat on them.
