Luna New Year Series 2—Behind-the-Scene Story for Our 2020 CLNY Tabletop

Every year we will design Chinese New Year tabletop theme. For lunar  New Year 2020, the year of the metal rat, we features the following elements:

  1. 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. The large area of white paint in this eat-in space balance off Classic Blue and light up the whole area.  In this color palette, we have influences from Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2020–First Light, DunEdwards Color of the Year 2020 –Mint Fresh and PPT color of the Year 2020—China Porcelain.

  2. 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.

A banquette seating is trendy in any eat-in space, specially the corner area —it looks pretty neat, stylish and offer extra seats and storage for get-togethers.  The plush cushions, upholstered fabric and throw pillows together elevate the every-day eat-in spaces and bring in elegance.

6 ways to Master the Art of Mixing and Matching for Your Home Decor

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.

  1. Rule #1, always keep an overall color palette  neutral if you are going to take a mix& match approach.

Home Tour—Grand Bel Air Estate Designed for Family and Entertainment

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 love this all black powder room featured with bird motif, black lacquered vanity and sparkling contemporary crystal wall scones.  It is quiet yet elegant and still polished.

This navy-blue enveloped dining room is warm, inviting. Two of crystal chandeliers over-hanging the dining table dazzling the whole space add a prefect  touch of glamour and luxury.

We also love kitchen, master bath , herss closet and outdoor patio. Let’s take a look :

paul-stratford-kitchen2-10-edit-1578349854.jpg
We love how dark blue tiles  on the backsplash and dining chair fabric contrast  with white crisp kitchen cabinets and vintage range hood—it’s airy, light yet still with a vibe of an eat-in kitchen –cozy and intimate.
paul-stratford-masterbath-37-v5-1578349856.jpg
A crystal chandelier and sleek built-in wall fireplace bring insophistication and warmth  into this all white modern master bath.  And we also love the large live plant in the shower.

Who wouldn’t love this all-white elegant walk-in closet with a beautiful modern chandelier, all-glass storage cabinet and open shelves?
paul-stratford-office-0019-edit-1578349856.jpg
The office with a great view and handsome furniture like these grey velvet club chairs. We love the bird statue on the polished side table.

5 ways for a Successful Room Makeover

 

I like to style the modern house since they often have a clean-line structure and will be easier to add some unique  objects and colors to make the spaces interesting rather dull and boring.  For the recent project we just did,  we approached Client’s  interiors in 5 ways to cope with her busy career and her love of modern interiors.

  1. Declutter those she really doesn’t need and those she will not be inspired or feel pleasant with.
  2. Add some quality pieces such as detail-oriented decorative pillows, one-of-the-kind chandeliers based on the pieces the client already has and no need to get rid of at the current moment. For this project, the pieces that the client would like to keep and also inspire me for designing the rest of the decor are this brown leather swivel chair and Moroccan rug from West Elm.
  3. Re-arrange the current floor plan to make it more open and functional.
  4. Casually add some artwork that sing with the interiors.
  5. Dare to choose bold patterns. For this project, we use houndstooth and stripe pattens to contrast with Moroccan rug pattern and add visual interest to the space.

Please check out before-and-after photos for part of the project.

7 Rooms that Use Stools to Elevate Their Decor

Do you ever  have that moment that you find yourself really stuck in the middle of  your room furnishing project and just cannot go anywhere. Sometimes, you may need a magic piece and most of occasion, I find that a stool truly can do a wonder by adding textures, patterns and colors to the space and make it sing. Let’s take a look at some examples:

A pair of the yellow square and dark blue poufs make the space feel casual, cozy and relaxing and also emphasis the color scheme of the room.

A pair of ceramic blue garden stools here intrigue a conversation.

The lime fabric upholster stool here is such a fashion statement.

The gold stool not only serves as a handy coffee table but also add a touch of sophistication to the room.
