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:
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.
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 know that a beautiful tabletop always makes any event so sweet, memorable and vibrant, not even mentioning prestigious academy events like Golden Globe. The design of the tabletop at 77th Golden Globe is chic, modern with a touch of signature Hollywood glamor—roses and Champaign.
The all-white dinner set choice, for sure, keeps all of the possible chaoes and fusses into the minimum while providing calming and clean backdrop for the beautifully arranged two-tone rose centerpieces, also, I believe, the smiles of the star guests.
Well, Beyonce’s gown really looks good with those bright orange and yellow roses.
Celebrity florist Mark’s Garden is behind the floral designs for this year’s show, and the California-based business flew in more than 10,000 blooms from Ecuador and Italy for the ceremony. The flowers, which have vibrant orange and yellow hues, add a pop of color to the dozens of tables inside the ballroom.
So, learning lesson here to set up a beautiful tabletop in a crowded and busy moment is with a simple table setting. Plus, it is the beginning of the year, you probably want to refresh your table with a minimal effort. White is the easiest color to style – its classic, calm and never goes out of fashion.

Yes, Chinese New Year is on 25th of this month and this year is Year of the Rat and you have to celebrate it in a big way because the year of the rat always indicates a big fortune coming to you. So be ready to receive it.
Well, Do above these adorable rats put a big smile on your face? They are created by Shaun Teo Creations in Kuala Lumpur. I am a big fan of Shaun Teo Creations on Instagram. They craft all kinds of cute cakes for different festivals and events. I have been always got inspired by their work. I believe they are now opening pre-orders for those lovely Chinese New Year’s cookies. Just check them out on Instagram.
So, today , since I am truly inspired by the red color they use for their product, I going to talk about Color of Red in home decor.
Red, corresponding with fire, symbolizes good fortune and joy. Red is found everywhere during Chinese New Year and other holiday celebrations and family gatherings.
Here are some inspirations.
Red, specially lacquer red on walls makes rooms look sumptuous and elegant. And of course, you always can choose red as an accent color.
“Over the last few years, a number of different colors have reigned supreme. Millennial pink got the ball rolling (and boy did it roll), followed by Gen Z yellow, slime green, and Aperol orange. But now as Pantone released Color of the Year 2020, we guess we have a fresh stable color to try on. You may think Classic Blue is boring, but as we look certain color more and more, we find beauty and start fall in love with it. From our opinion, Classic Blue is royal and noble. just see how Kate Middleton wears this particular color and how Ralph s Lauren still remains an important player with its signature blue in the fashion and home industries.
Pantone chose Classic Blue for its dependability and stability, two qualities people crave when crossing the threshold into a new era. “Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color, Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge,” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute said. “It fosters resilience.”
And of course, you can layer blue on blue:
What about Classic Blue pairs with rich jewel-tones or earthy tones?
Or Classic Blue can be just a high-light when pairing with cream floral pattern silky dress as following:
This Classic Blue pleated asymmetrical dress is cool with full of personalities and elegance. we love the sky-blue purse and teal fashion watch which add interesting layers to the overall-look. Mix-and-match is a way to go.
What if you are not ready for blue from inside out and top-to-bottom, you can start from a accessory or a pattern or a jacket or a top:
We blogged that Benjamin Moore’s color of the year 2020–First Light, if you haven’t read our blog, please click here to read And we think the color is pretty neutral yet moody and can be an elegant backdrop for any interiors. In Orange County Hill Project, we painted Client’s guest bedroom in kind of similar pink color—neutral yet elegant and sophiticated:
The light warm pink create such a dreamy atmosphere. The tufted bed headboard adds depth and interest to the space while the 2 of brass pendants anchor the bedroom and champaign nightstands lend a touch of sophistication. Artwork for sure is the soul of the room. This is a soothe and delicate place place where guests can relax well.
I have designed some modern interiors for my recent projects. People love SoCal’s airy vibes filled with natural lights. Meanwhile, they also would like to incorporate textures, geometric artworks, patterns, pops of color and earthy tones to create an inviting and warm atmosphere. For this San Gabriel modern home project we did, we add a smoke glass chandelier with a brass stem, several sky blue-pink -background geometric artworks, a grey velvet pouf, an oversized blush tufted square ottoman to bring a healthy dose of warmth , interest and depth to the space while we e keep the original motif-patterned Moroccan rug and brown leather swivel chair. Also, two elegant silver-leafed side tables we placed by the mid-century low-back sectional elevate the space with sophistication and luxury. So the end result is airy, light yet warm, modern, clean yet glamorous.
In case you are interested in the designer sider table we used for the project, now it is on our Labor Day promo and here are the details for the piece:
With double the style and twice the glamour, what’s not to love about this charming end table? Its metal frame features a Lightly Brushed Chrome finish while its signature circular top and bottom shelf are finished in Soft Silver Leaf. Thoughtfully designed, both shelves offer an integrated storage drawer for functionality and with it’s small profile, this cute number can fit just about anywhere.

One of the simple and easy way to refresh your living space is to change your sofa throw pillows. Somehow, piles of pillows with unique design on your sofa always make your living space homy, cozy and elegant. As you know, design is all in the details. Pillow insert materials, trims, pipings and tassels on pillow design all make a huge difference on the overall looking.
For the project we did in San Gabriel valley, we chose decorative pillows based on the colors and patterns of client’s existing Morocan-style rug.
