Subdued colours in a California Tudor home

Posted on Mon, 31 Aug 2020 by KiM

Timeless style with a muted colour palette, a contemporary/classic take on updating a Tudor in Los Altos Hills, California, by Christine Lin of Form + FieldA couple based in Asia tasked us with creating a comfortable family home to host 3 generations and guests. Stylistically, the wife prefers modern while the husband has slightly more traditional leanings. We struck a subtle balance between the two styles, respecting the Tudor style architecture, and incorporated family heirlooms throughout the space.

Art can really have a dramatic impact on a space. Take this apartment with fairly unremarkable architecture and mostly white walls. The art really stands out when there are no distractions and adds a really upscale, classy mood. By Brooklyn designer Danielle Colding.

Sunday at the office

Posted on Sun, 30 Aug 2020 by KiM

If you’re stuck going in to the office on a Sunday, it would be no sweat if it was as cool as the Oakland, CA office of Black Girls CODE (an inspiring organization trying to increase the number of women of color in the digital technology space by introducing girls 7-17 to CS – which I LOVE. 20 years ago when I was in the computer science program at a local college, I was one of maybe 5 women, and that included my twin sister. And we 5 were white or Asian). Designer Kīyonda Powell used such stunning, jewel tones in this space, and lots of fun patterns in fabrics and wallpaper.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a Saturday it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Telleish by Triibe.

It’s all about sophisticated contemporary living but remembering the building’s Edwardian past. Think textures and layers, white walls meeting sissal floors, zellige tiles, stone and accents of royal blue. Clifton Gardens by Studio Gorman.
