Did you watch iHeart Living Room Concert hosted by  Elton John  last Sunday? The concert was to help combat the current coronavirus pandemic.  If not, you can watch the whole concert by clicking here.

The concert was pretty awesome.  The star-studded benefit featured at-home performances by the likes of Alicia Keys, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, Dave Grohl and more. Tim McGraw, Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong and Sam Smith also performed, while Demi Lovato, Lizzo and Lady Gaga made special appearances during the evening encouraging fans with messages of hope and positivity.

For us, we are also very excited to see a little bit how these celebrities live and what their living rooms look like. Read on to see our 9 takeaways on how these Celebrities’ live.

1. The navy blue sofas are the most popular ones in these celebrities home.

Alicia Keys’ mid-century navy blue tufted sectional is chic, comfy and stylish. An orange pillow just adds a perfect pop of color. The navy blue in the artwork over the sectional and her piano continue the blue theme. Then a wood oval mid century modern coffee-table breaks the navy blue theme and let the eye take a rest.

Happy Friday, guys!  After the first 5 days of staying-at-home quarantine, you may want to relax a little and experience something exotic without leaving your comfort home.  Today, we are continuing our global home tour series. Today is part  II. You can click here to read part I.

Today, we will take you to tour Colombian fashion designer Johanna Ortiz’s Cartagena vocation home.

Cartagena is a port city on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. By the sea is the walled Old Town, founded in the 16th century, with squares, cobblestone streets and colorful colonial buildings. With a tropical climate, the city is also a popular beach destination. Reachable by boat are Isla de Barú, with white-sand beaches and palm trees, and the Islas del Rosario, known for their coral reefs.

Cartagena-de-Indias-Colombia-1068x712Cartagena-travel-guide

You can see from the photos above, Cartegena is a vibrant town with a breathtaking view of Caribbean Sea and a lot of indigenous culture and crafts. It must be a lot of fun just strolling around here.

 

edc090118ortiz02-1533674051

So here is the fashion designer– Johanna Ortiz standing at her front door  of her vocation home which she comes to visit 7 times a year. The black-and-white color scheme of an ancient Chinese wood door and exterior walls sets the tone for a quiet understated resort.

southern-charm-entryway-1533673562

Then comes a hallway where hand-made Mexican concrete flooring repeats the color scheme of black-and-white on the exteriors. Yet, a colonial antique wood table and wood-framed mirror together with local vintage pieces on the table add layers of warmth. A French crystal chandelier is romantic and sophisticated.

Here is her salon. We love a super long comfy modern sofa  paired with a Chinese Ming dark wood coffee table. And a tiger print throw rug  on the floor adds a modern flair to this space.

 

southern-charm-master-chaise-1533672599

In her bedroom daybed area, comes her play on textiles—floral and geometric prints mingle happily here. The blue-and-white color scheme is peaceful, relaxing and pleasing to the eye.

The red chinosoriee   on  plush pillows, bed coverlet and chaise lounge chair are warm and inviting.

Here is our favorite space of the home–terrace under a vaulted brick ceiling. We could just sit here for a whole day.  The mix of fine crystal glasses, vintage pieces and local crafts on a large Spanish table are just so striking.

Ortiz’s love of fashion actually stems from her passion for interiors,which is evident in both her clothing creations—she is known for her pattern choices and often sources fabrics from vintage textiles—and her Cartagena vacation home of 13 years.  She captures the sultry, sophisticated South American spirit.Check out her lipstick collection with Aerin Lauder and her fashion dresses(click each image for product details):

When we read an email about  a beautifully designed beach house in SoCal this morning, we  feel impressed and delighted. It’s a Spanish  colonial revival and redesigned by famed interior designer Barclay Butera. The design work is published at Traditional Home Spring Issue 2020.

 

Screen Shot 2020-03-02 at 10.18.26 AM

Barclay used his signature blue and white color schemes at the foyer and  private spaces of the home. Also, he repeated  symmetry and balance through the whole house to create formality. Interesting enough, this is actually a second home near the water.  But unlike conventional breezy and lay-back So-Cal beach houses, this house is the love for classical design.

Screen Shot 2020-03-02 at 10.18.50 AM
We love the dark geometric-patterned wood floor at the foyer. A group of blue-and-white chinoisorie ginger jars and vases  on a traditional center table set the tone for the whole house.

An Elegant Powder Room in Blue-and-White

Here is the recent powder room we did for the Orange County Hill house. Different from super contemporary entry, we create more traditional vibes for this powder room to give that warmth and inviting feel. The crisp contrast between blue and white and touch of brass on the hardwares  make the space so elegant, light and airy with a right dose of glamour.

Holiday ShowHouse of KHK Designs 2018—2019

It might be a little bit late to post our Holiday ShowHouse 2018–2019.  But come on, it’s still Jan of 2019 and Chinese New year is coming.  So it’s time to be festive and it’s time to celebrate.

The inspiration of our Holiday ShowHouse 2018—2019 is inspired by Pantone Color of the Year 2019–Live Coral—fashionable, bold, youthful, energetic and innovative.  After several years of muted color palettes, millennium pink and grey, we feel it is time to break through to celebrate holidays with something fresh. Therefore, we are able to stay prospective for the future.  Meanwhiles, Holidays are truly about traditions. We mix and match traditions with modern, Live Coral with vintage pink, emerald green with hot pink, camel with purple, Chinoiserie accessories with minimalism furniture, geometric patterns with classic forms and fine crystals with organic ceramic.   The end result of this year’s holiday show house decoration is fun, edgy, playful  yet still elegant and sort of traditional.  Enjoy!
