House Tour—-A Fashionable Home at Greenwich Village

Our recent blogs have featured homes with a light and airy vibe. Today, we decide to go to a different style—a home with a fashionable flair by using  colors. Why not? Color is a therapy that heal us and make us feel good.  We have included color in one of principles of wellness at home .  Here are the highlights of our favorite spaces.

Entry

edc-web-house-tour-fuller03-1586874949

From the entry, you probably won’t tell this is going be a colorful home.  Instead a large silver artwork by Anselm Reyle and a geometric black console and dark brown round mirror make a statement by  forms and  rather keep the color palette simple and neutral. We can feel a very masculine energy here.

Library

edc-web-house-tour-fuller02-1586874955

The neutral palette continues in the living room. But here, two of white curved sofa create a very inviting, cozy and elegant atmosphere here. We feel the feminine energy here. We love how chic and stylish side tables and ottoman with jewel-tone colors just casually sit around those two of the curved white sofa . They are just like beautiful and adorable accessories for this home.

 

Library

Now color starts to play in this family library. The blue color here is exciting yet very calming too. The colors on walls  and furniture pull out the color palette from an abstract artwork atop the fireplace to grantee a harmonious and cohesive feel even though bold colors are applied in this space.

 

Reading Area

edc-web-house-tour-fuller06-1586874949

We love this warm pink on two of  these reading settees.

 

Bar

edc-web-house-tour-fuller09-1586874922

A black bar cabinet and a black vase on top of is understate yet stylish and also well uses the niche space  here.

 

Dining Area

edc-web-house-tour-fuller04-1586874955

This blue wall by the dining area is opposite the above blue wall. So the key to use a bold color  still keeping a balanced and harmonious feel is to repeat the color in a symmetric way.  Those hanging little pendants above the dining table are just like jewels for this home. The warm brown on the velvet dining chairs is inviting and nicely contrasts with and well balances off the blue  on the walls here.

This swing bed is a great idea when you have a limited space but still want to have some fun.

Tour An Ethereal New York City Loft With A West Coast Vibe

 

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.

 

Entry

7

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.

9 Tips to Clean Brass

Brass is here to stay regardless how quite a few  influencers or bloggers said it is going to tone down for the home furnishing market in the year of 2020. First of all, not all brass products create equal. Second of all, brass is here to stay after we went to visited Las Vegas Market earlier this year and were invited over to many many trend reports for the past  5 months. Third, just as the design has been always evolving, this is the same for  brass decor objects. We have been seeing a lot of brass applications in  modern design in lighting fixtures, furniture, decorative plumbings, tiles, tabletops. Also,  brass can be a very timeless decor piece and it all depends on how you pair them with other materials and objects.  We love to use brass for our design projects since it always adds a touch of luxury to any space.
