We have a tradition for every New Year’s Day. Yes, we will go to beach to enjoy some sunshine , to be close to the ocean to feel its abundance and greatness. Ocean has a magic power that always calm us and show us there are actually tremendous opportunities and hopes out there in the world. And the most important thing ocean teaches us is to be kind, generous and tolenrant from those who are different from you.
Malibu is a city west of Los Angeles, California. It’s known for its celebrity homes and beaches, including wide and sandy Zuma Beach. To the east is Malibu Lagoon State Beach, known as Surfrider Beach for its waves. Nearby is the Spanish Revival–style Adamson House decorated with historical California hand-made tiles. Malibu is such a lovely beach town in SoCal with pretty relaxing vibes. Our trip this time is to visit Nobu, relax at its breath-taking beach-view porch, take a walk on the pier and just stroll around the town.
Nobu, Malibu is Iron Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Japanese delicacies, plus California fare, in a modern, beachfront space. “Originally opening in the Malibu Country Mart in 1999 as the fourth Nobu location in the United States, Nobu Malibu moved to it’s current location in 2012. The views of the ocean from nearly every seat in the restaurant, as well as Malibu-specific specialty dishes in addition to all of the Nobu classics, make this a destination dining experience not to be missed.” We have been too Nobu restaurant and hotel in Las Vegas. I will say Nobu Malibu has more relaxing beach get-away vibes while the Las Vegas one gears more toward high-caliber clubbing experiences. Each restaurant has their specialities. But one dish we like from both locations is Black Cod Miso. You’ve got to order it if you have a chance to visit.
Known for its five-star cuisine and decadent Japanese-inspired interiors, you’re likely to spot a Kardashian at this California go-to. The LA-based sushi bar is such a celebrity staple, it’s even name-dropped in three Drake songs and a Kanye track. That said, the opening of their luxury hotel Nobu Ryokan Malibu is bound to attract a star-studded guest list. We didn’t get a chance to visit the hotel this time since it is guests-only(maybe next time). But I found an article from Elle Decor talking about this newly opened 5-star hotel.
Overlooking Carbon Beach along the Pacific Coast Highway, the lodge draws from the area’s laidback California style while boasting Nobu’s signature Japanese design.The building’s original structure was a 1950’s beach motel, which architects Studio PCH and Montalba Architects have dramatically transformed. Each guest room has its own unique interior design, all incorporating teak, bronze, and limestone to maintain a calming neutral color palette throughout.

I was walking to my gym last night and the whole parking garage was almost at its full capacity since Target is next to my Gym and I guess people are really busy with shopping in the last couple of days before the holidays. Well, if you are one of them and I have something very special for you on today’s blog—some fashion trends from the recent reports. So why not take a big from your busy shopping and please your eye and heart first.
What can be more excited than setting up a festive Christmas table? And the best part is that we always can try a new fresh color palette.
KHK Designs’s Home for the Holidays 2019-2020—-Christmas Tabletop—featured with Pantone color of the year 2020 Classic Blue, Waterford Crystal wine glasses and candlesticks, Wedgwood dinnerware, GlobalViews accessories to create a festive modern classic tabletop.
So , here is our dining room for KHK Designs’ Home for the Holidays 2019-2020 featured with light lilac Chinoiserie wallpaper and design furnitures in a muted nutral color palette.
Inspired by Pantone color of the year 2020—Classic Blue, we would like to featured this dark blue shade on our holiday table-top. Opposite to the traditional green and red color palette, the blue color palette does deliver a super chic festive feel. And Waterford’s crystal glasses add a touch of glamor to the table. Meanwhile nutcrackers in navy blue and white uniforms talk to blue on Wedgwood’s fancy dinnerwares and Waterford’s dazlling blue holiday wine glasses. So the tables-cape we created for this year’s Christmas is elegant, sophisticated, chic and modern. A pop of red fresh flower centerpiece anchors the whole table and adds another happy and cheerful layer.
“Over the last few years, a number of different colors have reigned supreme. Millennial pink got the ball rolling (and boy did it roll), followed by Gen Z yellow, slime green, and Aperol orange. But now as Pantone released Color of the Year 2020, we guess we have a fresh stable color to try on. You may think Classic Blue is boring, but as we look certain color more and more, we find beauty and start fall in love with it. From our opinion, Classic Blue is royal and noble. just see how Kate Middleton wears this particular color and how Ralph s Lauren still remains an important player with its signature blue in the fashion and home industries.
Pantone chose Classic Blue for its dependability and stability, two qualities people crave when crossing the threshold into a new era. “Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color, Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge,” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute said. “It fosters resilience.”

This Classic Blue pleated asymmetrical dress is cool with full of personalities and elegance. we love the sky-blue purse and teal fashion watch which add interesting layers to the overall-look. Mix-and-match is a way to go.

Actually every color is beautiful and it often takes time to study them. The more you look at them, the more you will fall in love with them. And the most important thing is that how do you pair them with other colors to create a mood, a scene and a story that is intrigue and interesting. We talked about the several popular dark blues from different brandsyesterday and today we are going to focus on Classic Blue pairing with white. Here are some samples.

The Pantone Color Institute has just announced that its 2020 Color of the Year PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a deep blue shade that’s at once comforting and relatable.
“The sky at dusk – it’s not a midnight blue, it’s thoughtful, but it’s not so deep and mysterious,” she said. “It speaks to our feelings of anticipation, when you think about the sky at dusk, the day isn’t over. You’re thinking, what’s ahead of us? It’s reassuring, but thought-provoking. It highlights our desire for this dependable, anchoring foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era. We’re living in a time that requires trust and faith and confidence. We all see this blue sky and can relate to it, it’s approachable.”
This shade of blue is nostalgia yet modern, classic yet fresh, rich yet crisp, thoughtful yet still daring to look forward and take bold actions. It is calm, confidence, trusty and noble. This hue is both genderless and seasonless, making it both accessible and desirable, for people in all walks of life.
