Hong Kong-based designer Thierry Chow is known for incorporating the principles of feng shui into her practice. Feng shui — which literally translates to “wind and water” — is an important aspect of design and architecture in parts of Asia. Based on an ancient Chinese system, the positioning of objects or buildings in relation to one another and their surroundings is thought to encourage happiness and good fortune.
“In feng shui, we place a heavy emphasis on ‘qi,'” said Chow in a phone interview, referring to the concept of energy also used in traditional Chinese medicine and martial arts. “Imagine a river flowing through your space. If it’s not going smoothly then you should rearrange some furniture to clear that blockage.”

Gorden Wagener has spent a good amount of his coronavirus quarantine thinking about waffles.
Daimler’s head of design, who created such iconic cars as the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and Vision Mercedes concepts, wanted to bake bread during his pandemic free time, but soon found the bread maker he wanted was out of stock. So he ordered a waffle iron from Williams-Sonoma instead, and the German and Germany-based designer has been perfecting his at-home recipe for the delightfully dimpled grid of syrup holders ever since.
That’s how he landed on the idea for a glove-box waffle catapult.
When I heard he’d become a waffle master, I asked whether he could do deliveries.
“The car is easily smart enough to launch a waffle accurately — you could write smart messages on the waffle and then throw it!” Wagener suggested on a recent phone call. A paperboy tossing waffles instead of the morning

I have a love affair with grasscloth wallpaper. Like a true, deep, abiding love. Two years ago, I made my dreams of having grasscloth wallpaper in my own home, a reality, when I backed my office bookcase with a gorgeous aqua grasscloth wallpaper. It was, and still is, glorious. That little addition to my office only fueled my fire for grasscloth, and since then, I have been consumed with the idea of wrapping all 4 walls of my master bedroom in the perfect texture and beauty of grasscloth wallpaper. It took many months of convincing my husband, but he finally conceded to let me take my dream and make it a reality. In true designer fashion, it wasn’t enough to simply change the walls. I decided that a with the new wallpaper a bit more of a bedroom refresh was in order. By switching out some furniture pieces, like a
Family rooms are of the most used places in any home, it’s a great place to relax and unwind. See all our family room designs and home interior ideas.
A family room is one of the most frequented spaces in the home. It is where family and friends congregate to visit, watch television and relax. In homes that contain small children, it can also be a dumping ground for toys and other toddler paraphernalia. For this reason, there are certain factors to consider when decorating or redesigning your family room.
A family room must have a sectional. Well, if not a sectional than at least plenty of seating. One of the most important aspects of a well-designed family room is access to ample seating. Sectionals fulfill this need by removing unnecessary armrests and replacing that space with additional seats. However, not all rooms contain enough floor space to accommodate a

It sounds so simple decorating with only two colors; however, it tends to be trickier than you think. Here are four easy design tips when creating a monochromatic room.
1. Mixing your whites – All white is not truly ‘white’. There are many different shades of white, so incorporating a few different hues will visually layer in dimension.
2. Introducing different black materials – By adding in black metals, woods, and accent pieces, this will ground your design and also add a defining separation between the white hues.
3. Introducing another neutral color to soften the overall design – Adding in accents of browns and greens is a perfect way to add interest to your space, yet not take away from a monochromatic
4. Using both black and white colors in a material – Such as throw pillows or window treatments. Finding a material that uses both of
