When we talk about color of red at home, the first thing that comes out of mind is probably Dali’s iconic lip sofa. Around 1935, Spanish artist Salvador Dalí saw something special in the face of movie star Mae West: an apartment. In a watercolor, he turned her blonde curls into portières, her eyes into paintings, her nose into a fireplace, and her lips into a divan.

3 Colors that are Trendy Now

It’s almost the end of August.  I feel I just cannot wait to see all of  the new color palettes in fall. Here are 3 colors that I start to see them everywhere and they may dominate the this coming fall season.

  1. Chili Pepper Red— a little bit red on accessories like purses, boots, socks, …etc pairing with warm neutrals  is fresh, exciting yet classic and ladylike.4f1fc827becf8fc62570522a43f1ef900cec1b2d68bce193054bc7b155734d0d

2.Cinnemon:

Cinnamon is a warm, medium shade of brown.

Cinnamon is darker than shades like tan and beige but lighter than chocolate or true brown. Its warm undertones mean the hue can sometimes look red or orange-tinged. Cinnamon color looks fashionable, youthful and sophisticated when pared with checkered patterns and animal prints.

Lee Radziwill’s Glamorous New York Apartment

Several days ago, when I browsed through my Instagram and I read the news of Lee Radziwill.  — an legendary international socialite and fashion icon, the little sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is now with Jackie forever.

5715.jpg
lee-radziwill-01.jpg

I have always been obsessed by her  fashion and interior decorating styles—artsy, chic, elegant and with touch of surprises . She owned homes in New York, Paris and London.  Today I would like to share some of her New York apartment photos which was published by Architect Digest in 1975

The highlight for this New York apartment is really that red-velvet upholstered wall in her living room—it’s  sumptuous, luxury, feminine, warm and inviting.  It’s enliven the antique, artworks and old furnishings in the space. She mentioned that the reason she wanted vivid colors because she just experienced  the “white period” and want something different.
