Finally, the world famous couple have opened doors to Architect Digest.  Being honest with you, after I read the article, I looked  at my desk and got rid of everything in front of me in 5 minutes.  I guess that is the  power of  minimalism.  Although I still couldn’t figure out  how they make the space so pristine with their 4 kids,  I love the whole white-on-white   museum-like interiors.   I feel how they did their current home is like they did it after a long long sought-after-thinking.  Yes, let me put this way, the home looks very spiritual just like Kayne said it is a futuristic Belgian monastery  thanks to design help from the famed Belgium designer Axel Vervoordt and Kayne’s own minimalism taste.   Each  room is just like a space with art installation.  So, let’s take a look together.

 

Neutral Color Palette

The neutral color palette is the most effective way to create a soothing, relaxed home and serve as a backdrop for museum-level artwork. However, in order to make people look great under neutral shades, good lighting plays a critical factor.

The Pool Area

You may notice there is no Jacuzzi in this pool. But don’t worry because Kayne said they wanted the whole pool as Jacuzzi. And the  design idea is to let the kids sit on the stairs and just enjoy warm water with cheers.  How do you like the idea?

The Hallway

A soaring hallway is swathed in off-white plaster.

When Axel started to work on this project, he said they did a lot of editing and they wanted to make each space purer and purer.  I totally can relate to that. As you know we live in such a chaos environment, every time when we come back home, we want to come back to calmness.  I don’t know about you, I always try to make everything organized before I leave the house.  So when I come back home, I feel good.

In case you are inspired and interested in refreshing your home in such a similar way, we handpicked some product for you.

The living Room

So you can tell the couple really keeps furniture and decor minimum.  But with the fireplace, comfy chairs  and white textures rug, the space is quite warm, inviting and intimate.

Behind-the-Scene Story for our Home for Holidays 2019—Family Room

Good morning. The rain is back to LA this morning.  So it is fresh yet cloudy and a little dark. I guess the perfect spot we are propally  all craving now is by a warm fireplace in a cozy festive living room. So today I am going to share our inspiration behind our Home for Holidays’ family room.

holidayfamilyroom2.jpg

For this year’s holiday show-house, we want to create a cheerful yet serene atmosphere for a restful holiday seasons. So here comes with this neutral color palette—cream, muted Dutch pink, pearl white, charcoal brown with a pop of pink and light blue.  This color palette is inviting, warm, easy to live with, yet still  reflecting a touch of sophistication with silky sheen, brass accents, crystals, fresh roses. Also, we don’t want to create a too ornate holiday decor yet still love to keep some traditional elements of the old-school charm. After all, that is why  people love Christmas.  So, we mix and match classical and modern furniture to make this family room fresh, fashion-forward, relevant with full of holiday glamour.

Fresh Christmas greenery is another key design element to create that restfulness vibe. We all love to walk–through the woods during the holidays, don’t we? So rather than giving  green junipers a heavy traditional Christmas tree decoration, we simply keep them the way they are and use pretty rustic potteries to hold these fresh natural trees. The contrast of pottery rusticness and other refined holiday decor elements in the room give eye a break. So the mood here is you may have a big family get-together and you may be alone. But whatever your holiday plan turns out to be, you always can celebrate or just chill out here.

All of the furniture we use in this family room are all designer collections. So if you are interested in any particular piece, please email us at  info@khkdesignsinteriors.com with the item number that is under each item.

Laguna Contemporary House Tour by Paul McClean

We were recently invited to a private party to take a home  tour at one of Paul McClean’s latest contemporary projects at Laguna Beach. It was a beautiful sunny day in the valley and by the beach, there was a little bit marine layers, wrapping the whole beach town in a romantic sheer. And you can see in the following video, the neighborhood is kind of lay-back cottage beach house style which really makes Paul McClean designed home stand out. Ireland-born architect Paul McClean has become somewhat synonymous with the high-end housing boom in Los Angeles. He designed homes for celebrities and high-net-worth buyers that include Calvin Klein, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and the Winklevoss twins — famous for suing Mark Zuckerberg. He likes to play light, air and water for his projects to create very Zen-like atmosphere.

Here are some high-lights that we really like in this contemporary house at Laguna Beach.
