It’s middle of the week again. I hope you are all doing very well. I have couple of design projects going on simultaneously. I feel a little bit overwhelming and look for some inspiration to just keep myself going. I started to organize the photos for the events I have been to recently. I found something that really lights up my day—yes, a beautiful tabletop. I guess color and fresh flowers always stimulate my brain to release more endorphin and make me feel happy. I hope you feel the same way too.
Chinese New Year is going to be Feb 16th. And we are brainstorming a special tabletop for both V day and Chinese New Year celebration. It’s going to a very feminine, romantic yet a cheerful color-palette theme incorporating Pantone Ultra Violet, vintage pink, some chinoiserie components. And of course a lot of fresh roses. Please stay tuned with us.
It’s fun, fun, fun to host our own Sunday brunch at home because we can control what we put in the mouth and specially, it’s the beginning of the summer time and the weather is so nice. What we do have a lot now are floras and greeneries. Peonies are in the season in LA. So there is no reason not to go big on greenery and floral table decor. But I rather do them in a very organic and simple way. Here is the video we shot for one of our weekend brunch tabletop.
I hope you enjoy watching the video. Here are 3 take-aways for an elegant yet casual tabletop setting:
- Have a lot of greeneries accentuated by in-season flowers.
- Have a main color theme for the table-setting—we used blue-and-white in the video—the perfect color palette to celebrate the beginning of the summer.
- Just schedule time to do it over the weekend. You are going to enjoy it a lot!
The best way to kick off a fresh week is to create something beautiful.
After spending 3 days on the road, I really just love to chill out at home. A cozy banquette, a table with flower print table cloth, an armed Louis XVI chair, Chinoiserie vases and tea pot… Isn’t this room adorable? Yes, pillows and a lots of natural lights make it even better. What is your Friday plan?
