With beginning of the post-covid life, businesses start to re-open. However, we all feel it may take a while to go back the Normal. So how our home makes us feel play such an important  role for our daily life both physically and mentally.  Today we are going to talk about 7 ways to create a serene home.

1. De-clutter and Organize.

It is truly no fun when you have accumulated a lot of things over years without scheduling time to clean them up. The number 1 thing for a healthy home is about the free flow of the energy. A cluttered home often has a sagging energy.

After the clutter has been cleaned out, it’s time to organize. When everything has a place, we have fewer things to worry about.

4 Tips to Bring fun to Your Family Room with High Style

 

With closing down of  state and county parks, beach fronts in California , once again, we will have to spend more time  in our home. The human nature is that the longer you stay in one place, the more you start to focus on every details.  And that may drive you crazy. Our experience is that maybe it is time for you to do something. Rather than just staring at something that is not pleasing to the eye, do something about it–de-cluttering, re-organizing and creating something beautiful. So at the end of the day, you can at least take a break and enjoy your labor fruits. Read on to learn how bring more fun to your family room in style.

1. Take advantage of your view if you are lucky to have one.

Please, please free up your space in front of your windows or your patio door if you happen to have a  view of a beautiful garden, a meadow,  magical mountains, breath-taking ocean or deep green forest. In the photo above, we love how the blue velvet sofa sits against a wall  and oversees the outdoor view. The trick here is those two striped upholstered X-benches. They will not block your outdoor views. Rather, they provide flexible seating options.

2. Have a corner table setup

One of benefits of having a corner table-set up in your family room is that it is able to use the dead space in the corner and creates a new activity zone  (such as game table)for the whole family.  You know we all have that feeling when we sit around a table in Starbucks and we intend to be able to focus on our reading or our work although it is pretty noisy in the surroundings.  And fun part is that  you can add your own decor style and personality.

9 Ideas on Making your Bedroom Look Chic, Serene and Luxurious

It has being poured hard outside since earlier this morning in Los Angeles. We guess nothing can beat staying in a warm and comfy home.  Today, we are going to talk about 9 ideas for a fresh bedroom upgrade.

1. Have a soothe and relaxing color palette.

Color Sets the Tone for Relaxation

Image3-56a529995f9b58b7d0db31d6
Cool cream—This soft, clean palette is the perfect combination of tranquility and luxury. Using fresh, white linens and a neutral palette similar to this gives your bedroom a hotel-type feel, making it easy to fall into the covers and imagine yourself somewhere far, far away.
C1Image5-56a5299b5f9b58b7d0db31dc
Soft Whites, Pinks, & Grays—Soft pinks are another favorite to use when it comes to creating a relaxing mood in the bedroom. Paired with a few simple neutrals, this pretty color is the perfect way to add a soft touch of soothing femininity to a bedroom, like this one featured on the SF Girl site.
C2Color-Lesson-from-Matri-and-Susanna-Vento-02
Blush,  cream, brown. light gray and soft white

In a bedroom, where we most need to strike a calm and relaxing chord, the color becomes an even more important part of creating a sanctuary. Picking a color that you love, and pairing it with the right secondary colors, is the best way to create a space that you will enjoy – one in which you can relax and refresh.

a8d8772ac19aa442f2ebe344bdbff062

Image4-56a5299a5f9b58b7d0db31d9
There is just something about cool grays and blues that gives any room a smooth, laid-back vibe. In this bedroom featured on the SF Girl site, the paint color has a touch of purple, giving it a regal, sophisticated feel. Meanwhile, the lighter grays and whites in the space make a statement against the darker painted wall. Investing in good white bedding like this is one of the best ways to make your space feel relaxing and comfortable.

2. Add a stylish bench or a petite loveseat to the end of a bed.

One of the most practical (and therefore traditional) pieces to put at the end of a bed is a bench.  The ideal place to plop down and tie your sandals in the morning or kick them off at the end of a day.

3. Have a vanity or writing desk–a clever and pretty way to spend more time in your bedroom in a style.

If you have a small room, you can think about replacing your regular nighstands with a sleek writing desk or vanity desk.

4. Upgrade  your hanging light fixtures.

A unique hanging light fixture often adds a sophistication layer to  a bedroom.  Hang the chandelier over the center of the bed. Shorten the chain, so the bottom of the chandelier hangs seven feet above the floor. For ceilings higher than nine feet, consider hanging a two-tier chandelier, so the room doesn’t overpower the chandelier.

5. Hang a pair of smaller chandeliers at each bedside and save precious space on the top of bedside tables. For the most benefit when reading in bed, hang each fixture 20-30 inches above the nightstand so it rests at about the same place as a standard bedside table lamp.

6. Over-filled pillows on your bed.

There’s something so luxurious about plush, overfilled throw pillows, which go a long way in transforming your bedroom from “everyday” to a bonafide retreat that emulates the most sumptuous of hotels.

7. Incorporate a rug. Adding texture and warmth to your bedroom is one of the easiest ways to boost its style factor. Whether you’re partial to florals or understated designs, like jute, a chic rug can pull your bedroom together in an instant.

8. Display some artworks.

Show off your style with a statement piece of artwork, whether it’s a sculpture, photograph, or colorful painting. While it can certainly be displayed on a wall, leaning your favorite piece against a wall can be just as powerful.

As always, the quickest and easiest way to upgrade your room from “average” to “expensive-looking” is to add some greenery. What form this takes is up to you: A large fern? Small potted plants on your dresser? No matter how, adding a few plants helps a room make the final leap to luxury.  And of course, fresh flowers will add a touch of elegance to your bedroom.

3 Takeaways on How to Create a Happy Place—a Review On the Design of Elle Decor Cafe 2020

We came across an article this morning about Elle Decor Cafe 2020 in Plaza Hotel New York  and immediately fell in love with the unique decor that is modern, youthful, feminine and chic yet still keeping  a old-world charm. Not surprisingly, the make-over design work is by renowned interior designer Sasha Bikoff whose design, in our opinion, is very UN-American—out-of-box, playful, chic and romantic in a very lady-like way. Since today is Friday, we want to talk about the design of this pretty cafe and hope to bring some weekend cheers to you.

The ELLE Decor Café at the Plaza is located at the famed Rose Club, which was once a popular venue for entertainers like Billie Holiday, Bob Hope, Liza Minnelli, and Kay Thompson. Along with showcasing her passion for energetic, global-inspired interiors, Bikoff reimagined the iconic space to reflect its rich jazz roots.

1. color Palette: “Since the Plaza is such a happy, colorful, monumental place, it was really important that I used a light color. We did have these more traditional jewel tones, but I wanted to brighten up the space with pink and lavender to balance all of the wood paneling. One really wonderful thing is that the ceiling lights can turn purple, so it worked out perfectly that I had a fabric that was red (a connection to the Rose Club) and lavender (a connection to the lights on the ceiling).”—Sasha Bikoff

We love the interplay between  pink  and rouge to create such  a happy and romantic atmosphere.
