Guys, Happy valentine’s Day! It has been raining whole day here in Los Angeles. It’s a perfect day to enjoy my little world of romance on this raining day. Yet I wish everyone out there safe and stay out of the rain.
I am still in the process to work out our spring collections in fashion, home and art. It has been a a fun journey so far. Spring is all about hope, freshness, flowers, greenery, everything beautiful in mother nature. I have been inspired by nature and by all of the new designs in 2019 everyday. For the vignette I created for Valentine’s Day, it is about all of these—fun, romantic and boho chic:
When the sun shines through the windows, that is when magic happens. We realize it is spring time. Fresh, fashionable and feminine, this IS the theme for our Spring Story collection in fashion, home and art:
Finally, the rain stops today here in Los Angeles after a whole-week wet weather. And as usual, we start to enjoy sunshine. When the sun shines through the windows, that is when magic happens. We realize it is spring time. Fresh, fashionable and feminine, this the theme for our Spring Story collection in fashion, home and art.
I like to use tiles for my projects since tiles are one of surface coverings that are super easy to clean, no off-gas and add interesting design elements to any interior space. If you are planning a renovation project this year, you may want to know what are the trends for tiles in 2019. Here are 5 trends I summarized by looking through the new designs on internet and trade shows:
Trend 1–While the large-format size tiles are getting larger, the revival of the small format floor is real this year. Small-size tiles with fashionable colors and irregular shapes truly give the design more fun and flexibility. I used to choose large-format tiles for our statement powder room design (see below), but now, I choose 3″x8″ sky-blue tiles for one of our newest powder-room projects:
Check out before-and-after video and see how we incorporate small-size hand made tiles with hand-painted wallpaper for this powder room design.
And here are are more small-size tile applications:
Trend 2— Geometric Accents:
There are two main inspirations that are quite fresh for 2019. Art Deco, organic inspired graphic design, and simple lines or un-pretentious geometry.
Wouldn’t be nice we have this long weekend holiday and it’s in May. It’s such a beautiful season to pamper ourselves with all of Spring beauties. My favorite are always about blue-and-whites, greenery, pink blooms, gardens, sunshine, fresh air… How about you? How are you going to celebrate MemorialLong-weekend?
