5 Ways to Bring Florals to Home

One of the trends in the recent years is that people more prefer the modern interiors with soften touches. These can be  soften color palettes,  silk or velvet fabric choices or floral patterns on textiles, decor objects or surfaces.  The floral patterns can work as an magic wand for any interiors.  They light up the home with a touch of elegancy.  The keys to make them look fresh are 1)just use right amounts of the patterns; 2) have a contrast with surroundings; 3) with a modern twist.

In case you are in the process to bring more spring cheers to home, there are 5 ways to bring  florals to home:

  1. Upholster an accent chair with floral-patterned fabric to live up any rather darkened spaces.

3 simple ways to Bring Spring to Your Home

I love visiting artists’ studios. Often, I am just so amazed how they make the spaces so livable with simple creative ideas and great cares.   There are always fresh flowers and plants in their studio making guests feel so inviting and fresh.   Of course, we can learn from them too.  Here are 3 simple ways to bring spring indoors.

  1. Having fresh flowers and greenery everywhere in your home. You can just pick them from your backyard–it is touch of nature.

A Beautiful tabletop in Sun-filled Room

Finally, rain stops and sun is out. And most importantly, the weather is finally getting warm up to 70 degree in Los Angeles. I know it has been a weird cold for a very long time since last Nov.  I think I prefer the warmer weather with a lot sunshines. Who wouldn’t?

Well, it is March and spring is just around the corner and Easter is coming soon. I just cannot wait to put up a beautiful outdoor tabletop for entertaining with some fresh color palettes and romantic components.  What about you?

So, I decided to go through some photos and videos from the events we  have been to recently for inspiration.  Then I found this video I shot—I wish I could have done it better.  Maybe next time.  But the whole set-up, organic components, the sun-lights, crystals and yummy cookies in pastel colors and of course fresh flower pedals really talk to me.   I love how they have a large wood branch as a center piece with elegant crystal sculptures scattering  around.  The contrast between organic elements and high-polished items creates such a beautiful , moody,  refined yet relaxed and casual atmosphere.  And fresh flower pedals all over the table are just such a romantic touch. It’s a dream afternoon.

A Stylish Tabletop from an Art Opening

Guys, it’s middle of the week.  We probably all need a little bit refreshing break from the busy week. I recently went to an art opening reception and was really amazed by how they styled the table with all natural ingredients and beautiful spring colors. Of course, the food was just beyond fresh and delicious.  Everything  was made from scratch. So they are local and very Los Angeles. Here are some photos and a video I would love to share with you:
