While Jeep-Pasinee Kongdechakul also talked about the key inspiration of “Wild Orchid and Peony” artwork and suggests the popular technique to design home decoration items that “I create this work in a format of two paintings on a sofa cushion. The concept of both flower prints symbolizes the flower pattern for home decoration but I also combine with popular home design styles. First is in dark color tone with orchid that grows well in Thailand merged with terrazzo stone. This design becomes popular again. The second one is peony print in pastel tone in contrast with marble edge as another popular home decoration. For the trend of technique to create home decoration item today is more in customized design like painting favorite patterns onto favorite items such as cushion, ceramic pieces for real use or decorate the wall. The color used in this artwork is powder color. The fact about the making is that the color we paint and what we see after the ceramic is processed in the oven may differ. For amateur painter can start with easy pattern by finding the design you like and practice drawing them without worry how it will look like because there’s no rule in art.”

The workshop activity was joyful as the celebrities also shared their favorite corners at home and tips on their home decoration style. First, a celebrity with gorgeous skin, Janetira Attaskulchai, said “Home decoration to make a perfect place is very important to me as I love staying at home. My favorite corner is the outdoor garden. At my house in London, the weather is very nice outside so I enjoy sipping tea and decorating home with flowers. My garden decoration is in cozy style and I choose furniture in light color tone to feel relax like white color with soft cushion on sofa to feel comfort and a table light color to arrange flowers. We have to cover our outdoor furniture when we don’t use to protect it from damage in case of rain.”
Next, a socialite celebrity, Ployvarin Songpakorn, said “I focus on my bedroom the most as it’s where I need to rest and spend most of my time in there. Good decoration makes me want to be in the room and get better rest. I chose the furniture in my room meticulously. The bed must be soft and comfortable. Bedsheet must keep cool temperature and I need a medium size sofa placed at the end of the bed to relax before bedtime. The decoration design is classic in white and silver tone as key colors. When I need to buy home decorating items, I go to the showroom that offers variety of products and I consult with interior designer if the item I like will fit to the space at my home. To make beautiful home decoration, further from nice furniture, the way we use the space is also important.”
Next, a party celebrity guy, ML Attadit Diskul, said “Home decoration is another significant lifestyle because it can reflect the character of house owner. My decoration style is industrial loft that emphasize natural structure and raw concrete wall. The furniture is simple without much of details needed in the color tones of grey, black or with wood furniture. My favorite corner at home is the bar because I open Japanese restaurant and get used with sitting at the bar. So I built a bar at home for many activities such as dining, working. My bar is a wooden bar with a ceiling lamp and built-in beverage shelf. Thus the decoration should provide both beautiful design, great function and comfort, as well as other corners at home.”
While activity girl, Parva Nakasai, said “My favorite home corner is the living room as I spend most thime there for eat, watch movies, talk to family or even play with my pet. So I give priority in choosing furniture for this room. I need large sofa for to sit and lay down, a working desk that I can eat at this desk too. I like furniture in modern style with light colors such as beige, grey, or white. If I choose a table in light color, I will choose sofa in light color with some patterns to allow the contrast in decoration. If I have pet I will avoid leather and choose fabric or velvet sofa.”
Working woman, Varithorn Kanpaibool, said “I hold a degree in architecture so I definitely focus on home decoration. The furniture and item s selectioin must fit well to the function in each corner at home. I spend most time in home office because I run many businesses today. Good working space can make me work better and give more inspiration. I like clean design of working space in modern style with grey, brown, cream or white furniture. My working room consists of a desk, a lampshade, a carpet, a sofa and a few pieces of home decorating items so I can work and chill out at the same time”
Lastly, famous star and owner of luxury condominium, Virithipa Pakdeeprasong, said “My style in condo decoration is in mix & match design consisting of three key styles which are modern, vintage, and classic. The vintage style is represented through the built in furniture on the wall but the furniture and decorating items are in modern and classic styles. However, I will keep the decoration under the same tone. My room is in grey so I have to choose furniture in lighter shade like beige or cream. For condo decoration, apart from beautiful design, we need to consider about the space as condo has less space than a house so we should not choose large piece of furniture. This will lessen the functional space and the room will look smaller. So we need to do research and consult with interior designer. My favorite corner is living room as I spend time here to relax, watch movie, chat with friends. I choose sofa from quality brand using good material for comfort. It’s close to the balcony so I can see the view outside during the day. I also hang picture on the wall there to draw attention when people look around so they won’t feel bored.”
Moreover, Sairoong Phawanurak also suggest the 2020 home decoration trend that “The trend next year will be more fun from more variety of furniture color tones such as blue, mint green, or orange including more variety of materials such as combination of different materials in one piece such as acrylic with gold or wood to make the piece more interesting. The key to choose furniture is the size of furniture that has impact on functional space, especially in condo with limited space so we need the furniture that fits well to the room and not lessen the room size. The next factor is style and quality because it’s an investment that will last in the long run. A brand must be reliable in quality, providing graceful design and real function.”
