Home in West Coast is all about light, airy and coziness. A pristine loft apartment with soaring ceilings and monumental windows in a historic 19th-century building in NYC was just transformed into a cozy West -Coast-like home. Here are the highlights of our favorites.
The loft is full of natural light. So the earthy elements such as wood panelings were introduced to anchor this light-filled space. We love this mixed-media piece by Thea Djordjadze over the console. A stump stool is just adorable. The take-away design lesson here is to have the master artwork and unique furnishings in the entry to create that wow factor while using earthy elements to delivery an inviting and understated feel.
With hunkering down at home for so long, we all are so desperate to expect something new, exciting and inspirational particularly in our home. Chances are most of us probably will spend most of time at home in the near future. With opening of most of businesses, we were able to visit some home decor showrooms recently just to please our eye. The feeling is fresh and great! And of course, we wore the facial cover and kept social distance all the time during the visits. So here are some our takes to update your home to inspire and cheer you up during post-covid19.
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.

Meyer Davis was commissioned to design this hunting camp and weekend retreat outside of Nashville, Tennessee to be a gathering place for family and friends.

Color Palette—embrace Pantone Color of the Year 2020—Classic Blue with touch of traditional Chinese red and pastel pink to create a modern, intimate, chic and festive decor vibe.

Mix of modern and clean-line classical furniture to create a fresh, inviting, relaxing, comfy and feminine atmosphere where we are often drawn to for a holiday family get-together.
We often have fun to mix high and low, old and new and of course different aesthetics. Mixing of all kinds will add interest and character into the space. In order to keep the cohesive vibe overall, we will have to use some common elements to thread through the different layers. And here is the case study for the corner space for the project we recently designed. We would like to create a chic, fresh, elegant, polished decor style while still keeping it inviting and cozy. Here is how we did it—today, we are going to share 6 tips on how we artfully mix high and low, modern and classical, old and new to achieve this goal.
Rule #1, always keep an overall color palette neutral if you are going to take a mix& match approach.
We would think that decorating 20,000 square-foot estate should be a daunting work. LA-based decorator Lonni Paul recently just transformed such a big job for real estate developer Ted Foxman’s 20,000 square-foot Bel Air family home in a seemly-effortless way.
We mean, the house is big, just imagine it–overlooking the expansive Pacific Ocean, eight bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms, the property is filled with just about every amenity one could desire in a forever home. The first question popping on our mind is how she started her decorating job with such a colossal home. Paul is such a genius designer and is no stranger to design projects of this magnitude, as a number of her former clients have resided in areas like Saudi Arabia, where properties are typically on the larger scale. And it also comes down what the clients are really looking for -“We wanted a light, airy, positive energy to be everywhere—large spaces that felt cozy and comfortable, and something that was widely appealing to anyone,” Foxman says of his vision for the property. We think Paul did a fabulous job to reach her clients’ goals. When we go through the album of the finished project, we can feel thE causal relaxing California coziness with a high style. We specially like how she approached decoration for the powder room and dining room—“I wanted to have some elements of surprise; spaces that were a little more offbeat than the rest of the home, but still elegant in their own way,” Paul says.
We also love kitchen, master bath , herss closet and outdoor patio. Let’s take a look :
It had been super busy in the last several days from WestEdge show to working on the on-going projects. WestEdge is hosted every year at the end of Oct mainly to show local small home goods makers’ handcrafted products in Los Angeles and of course some global brands in kitchen and bath as well. The show venue is usually modern and chic. I partially enjoy their outdoor lounge area in the beautiful SoCal sunshine in fall. Here are 3 homes trends we saw from this year’s show:
Muted pastel color palette on tiles, ceramic objects:

3. Fashion-forward Decorative Pluming Hardwares:
