4 Ideas to Cozy Up Your Home

So why not make it warm, inviting and elegant? Wallpaper is coming back huge in 2020 with some really cool modern design.

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.

An floral patterned chair always make us feel moody and romantic.

2. Yes, a floral tablecloth please.

3. A floral daybed drape.

Ladies, this is how we pamper ourselves—a  cozy den, a floral drape and fresh flowers.  what else can we expect?

4.  Floral Wallpaper.

5. Artworks themed with flowers.

Before and After—Minimulism vs. Maximalism

 

 

I am so happy to read an article in the WSJ that “After decades of stark, formulaic interiors, design is giving way to maximalism—a luxurious riot of color and pattern.” You can read this article right here

 

A powder room is where you wow your guests.  This powder room features pink designer wallpaper, pale blue wainscot panelings, crown moldings, a Waterworks washstand, gilded Louis XVI gilded gold leaf mirror, a custom upholstered floral petite chair, modern marble floor and framed artworks.  The mix-and-match approach of layers, patterns and objects make the space intrigue, elegant and sophisticated.  The transformation from minimalism to maximalism truly deliver a big wow!

Happy Friday

6 Steps to Transform a Small Space

The most fun work sometimes is really about how to transfer those small spaces.   Here is the project we did for a small notch area just outside of the powder room.   We took  care of all the details from flooring, walls, lighting to vignette styling.  The size is about 36″ w x 72″H X 14″ D.  The client still wanted a wow factor for this area since it’s opposite the powder room.  Here are 6 steps we did:

  1. Install moden geometric-pattern wallpaper to make the space interesting and playful.
  2. Install a white-gold mirror to light up the space.
  3. Have a sleek brass console .  It did take a while to find the right size.
  4. Have a mable-base table lamp which talks to the natural crystal inlay of the mirror.
  5. Have a arrange of decorative objects to finish the whole set.
  6. Place fresh florals arrangement.

 

 

 

Hello Monday

mondayroom779d9e3d6a6fa9953eba3a96e717e331

It’s a rainy day and it’s Monday.  Sun just comes in and off.  When all know how that makes us feel.  What will be a great way to kick off the week?  The answer is if we engage some beautiful activities, we will definitely enjoy this Monday much more.  Maybe it’s time to make something special for your surroundings. I just created this little cozy brunch vignette by leveraging beautiful rose blooms outside.   I love it!  Here are 5 tips to design this beautiful space:

  1. Install some interesting wallpaper in this area.
  2. Have pop of colors.  Maybe it’s the color of the lamp shade.
  3. Leverage the beautiful outside view by framing it from inside.
  4. Prepare a healthy brunch for two.  Maybe it’s strategizing time for with the partner.  Conversations over nicely set-up brunch are always pleasant.
  5. Fresh flowers that will put a big smile on your face.

Happy Monday
