We often have fun to mix high and low, old and new and of course different aesthetics. Mixing of all kinds will add interest and character into the space. In order to keep the cohesive vibe overall, we will have to use some common elements to thread through the different layers. And here is the case study for the corner space for the project we recently designed. We would like to create a chic, fresh, elegant, polished decor style while still keeping it inviting and cozy. Here is how we did it—today, we are going to share 6 tips on how we artfully mix high and low, modern and classical, old and new to achieve this goal.
Rule #1, always keep an overall color palette neutral if you are going to take a mix& match approach.
One of things we are excited about Designer Fall Markets is to see the launchings of new fabrics. And just like fashion, the new patterns and colors of fabric always bring us joy and happiness. Often, these new patterns and colors of fabric will transform your home like a magical. And without any doubt, using of upholstered pieces in your home will make it more warm, inviting and comfy with a touch of elegance and personality.
Here is the over-view of the showroom.
And here are the new fabric samples of fall 2019:
Aren’t you fall in love with these fresh colors and patterns? Want to see what I got?
Yes, I played these fabric samples I picked up on my dining table this morning. OMG, aren’t they beautiful?
As I said that fabric can transform your space in a second. Unfortunately, people are often afraid to use patterns and colors. So I will share 3 tips on how to choose fabric in your home:
Choose the colors and patterns that evoke your emotions.
When there are more than 3 patterns, play the proportions and make them into different scales. that way, your eye will not feel the busyness.
You also can go tone-on-tone if there are more patterns involved.
Use colors and patterns on accent pieces and you can update them seasonaly.
Layer up with different textures to add extra depth and comfy to the space.

Do you ever have that moment that you find yourself really stuck in the middle of your room furnishing project and just cannot go anywhere. Sometimes, you may need a magic piece and most of occasion, I find that a stool truly can do a wonder by adding textures, patterns and colors to the space and make it sing. Let’s take a look at some examples:
After a colorful holiday celebration, we are naturally more attracted to a clean and neutral space, the space that helps us to clear our minds, reflects the past year and visions the future. I just came across a few great designs today and would love to share some of them with you in this blog.
Here is the house by Tracy Hardenburg Designs in Baltimore. The high-ceiling, the neutral color palette and the clean-line architectural details make this home an elegant and quiet refuge.
It keeps raining, raining and raining in Los Angeles. Wouldn’t be nice to just chill out in this pretty and cozy bedroom featured with pastel color palette, poster bed, toile wallpaper, vintage channel-back love seat, mid-century chandelier, and pink-shaded table lamps, etc…?
Hello, December! Christmas decorations are in full force. No matter what’s you mood and how busy you are, it’s really up to you to make any holiday season festive, happy and special. There is only one Christmas a year. Why not make it beautiful? If you are not into big construction work, there are so many different ways to decorate your houses in this holiday season. Here is our project I would love to share with you :
There are 5 steps we did for this project:
Change the wall color from the old dull yellowish color to cheerful candy pink—it’s youthful, feminine and elegant. The traditional Regency walnut breakfast table, Louis-XVI chairs and trimmed upholstered sectional sofa add a touch of classic and make the space more grow-up.
Add a cream faux fur area rug to make the room cozy and inviting.
We go all natural from Christmas tree, green branches around beams to dried fruit wreath at the back of the chairs. It’s more fun, inspiring to play with natural materials. Here are some guidelines on how to take care of real Christmas trees.
Have some modern brass lighting fixtures to make the room dazzle–it can truly fresh up an old space immediately.
Make your table display festive and beautiful—it’s show time.
I am totally in love with Halloween. The more I work on our Halloween House project, the more I feel Halloween is the coolest festival ever. It is so much fun to play with the decors and have a lot of creative spirits from all sorts of skulls, pumpkin crafts to the horror scenes. I literally can find my inspirations wherever I go. Here is what I saw wen I stepped in Target last night:
For the year of 2016, we took a romantic approach on creating our Halloween House of KHK Designs. Yes, we believe Halloween can be a little bit scary, fun yet elegant and sophisticated. The idea sparked me when I visited gardens. I usually only like to go to gardens in spring time. But my recent visits to gardens make me deeply fall in love the gardens in fall–colorful pumpkins and foliages, warm sunshine and fun festive spirit.
All right, should we start the tour of our Halloween House?
I will post the rest of house tour soon.
Here are some of furniture we used for this project, most of them are custom-made. Please contact us if you are interested in any of them:
