Happy MLK Day, guys! We really started Monday in blue. It is clouded, dark and chilly in LA. So I think let’s do something counterpart, something happy and cheerful. As Chinese New Year is coming Saturday(Jan 25th), so I am going to start a series of blogs dedicated to Chinese new year on home decor, fashion and culture.
Today is series 1 of this week. First thing first, let’s get some inspiration.
I found some pretty cool Year of the Rat greeting card design
And here is a greeting from Disneyland:
When I came cross the news that Gucci just collaborated with Disneyland to launch their Chinese New Year 2020 collection, I felt super inspired and excited. I was thinking that would be a good idea to visit Down Town Disneyland to check out their new design in 2020 and that also would be great way to greet Chinese New Year since Chinese New Year is coming on Jan. 25th and this year will be year of the rat. Disneyland is the happiest place in the world. So, guys, time for Mickey Mouse!
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 all want the freshest, newest and coolest look for our home in the new year, don’t we? If refreshing your home in high style is one of your goals in 2020, please read on this blog since we are going to share some industry insights in the following 5 ways to help you reach your goal in 2020 by showcasing our newly designed dining room project.
First and foremost, always keep true to your own style and choose things that you love and are attracted to. You may notice that there are a strong wave going on years for mid-century style furnishings and you can find mid-century furniture and decor in any big box retailers now . If mid-century is your style, that is all good. But just bear in mind that not all of mid-century furniture is created equal. If you are a classical lover, I have a good news for you that classic design with new twists is coming back big. Millenniums are now looking for one of kinds of vintage pieces, antique and art to curate their own personal style. They definitely don’t want their home just look like their neighbors.
Furniture and part of decor items in this Dining Room will be available on our online store soon.
2. Stay muted natural color palette with pops of color in a subtle and cohesive way is a great approach to create a timeless interior.
3. Layering the room with different elements, patterns and textiles and etc… is another way to create timeless look since layering always bring in interests, depth, dimensions and personalities to the space.
4. Have something sparkling to create a high-design and high-polished style for the room that is important to you and your family.
5. Yes, fresh flowers please. They help add pops of color and make any room alive in a second. We usually prefer to loose style flower arrangements since they often invoke a relaxing vibe.
Wether it is formal, or very casual, a dining room in all kinds of styles–modern contemporary, coastal, bohemian, mid-century modern, Scandinavia often makes a home homy since this is the place where families get together and chill at the end of the day. My design philosophies are: it needs to be beautiful so it can please eye and it also needs to be comfortable so we can totally relax here.

We love to stroll around LA’s Art District over the weekends. We love to see the young energies and emerging trends here. So often, we are just amazed and entertained by one OF kinds of graffiti on the street. I may not a big fan of graffiti. But I love those in Art District thanks to the beautiful color palette they use and meanings behind each of these street art.
And for today’s trip, we visited several art galleries. They were all very cool and interesting. We specially love the art show ofEttore Sottsass. Ettore Sottsass was an Italian architect and designer during the 20th century. His body of work included furniture, jewellery, glass, lighting, home objects and office machine design, as well as many buildings and interiors. Sottsass made his name as a designer who, through color form and styling, managed to bring office equipment into the realm of popular culture. Today’s show was about his signature cabinets, shelving, ceramic, glassworks.

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 :
The beginning of the new year is a great time to create a new look for your home. How excited it is! Today we are going to share 8 tips to fresh up your small spaces. But first of all, we will need to have a right mindset—a small space can have a big style. We guess you are with us. So please read on and see if any of the following advises can be of help to you.
Step 1: Choose a small space that you use daily and need an update to make this space organized and stylish so you feel your life can be on the track in 2020. They can be your kitchen open shelves, your pantry, your powder room, your entry,…etc. And of course your dress room. You may say that I don’t have a room for dressing up myself. That is ok. It can be a corner of your bedroom or your closet or your master bath. What ever it is, we will need some essentials to make things happen. All right, so today we are going to use dress room or dress space as a case study.
We actually just re-designed this dress room from a closet. A good thing about this closet is that it has a tall window. So step 2 to transform any small space is to bring in a lot of natural light if you are lucky. If that is not your case, you always can throw in some table lamps, floor lamps or indirection LEDs to create pretty cozy atmosphere.
Step 3 is to have a fresh paint for your small space. A new coat of paint will change your space in a second. If your small space has a lot of light, we recommend to go for light color just like we did for this small dress-up room. And if your small space is a complete dark space without any window, we recommend to use rich tones to create an enveloped jewel box. So you can totally relax there with your weekend home-made cocktails or Kabucha tea.
Step 4: Upholster anything you have in that space, it can be a vanity chair , a makeup desk or a bench. You can even add some trims for your upholstered piece just like the way we added Grace key trims for the below makeup desk. The trim detail will uplift your small space in a big way.
Step 5: Layer up different styles and different elements to make your small space fun and interesting with your personality. We add a pretty modern pillow in this dress room to break away from the dressy style and still have the pillow in blush color to keep the cohesive vibe.
Step 6: Have sparkling crystals to make your small space dazzling.
Step 7: Have some fresh flowers or preserved flowers to make your small space alive.
Step 8: Yes, art please.
