Clean and Neutral

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…?

Before and After—5 Tips to Decorate Christmas in a Fashionable Way

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Add a cream faux fur area rug to make the room cozy and inviting.
  3. 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.
  4.  Have some modern brass lighting fixtures   to make the room dazzle–it can truly fresh up an old space immediately.tableandlamp.jpg
  5. Make your table display festive and beautiful—it’s show time.tabletop

Happy December!

Halloween House of KHK Designs–Part I

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:

So adorable. These little painted pumpkins put a big smile on my face when I did my weekly heavy grocery shopping.

 

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?

Pop of orange on the upholstered chinossorie chair, pillow, roses and pumpkin creates immediate happy , festive and inviting vibes.  The little greeting ghost hanging on the gold umbrella stand is fun and playful.  Pairing orange with gold adds a sense of chic elegance for the house.

I am  obsessed with layering pink in different textiles, pattens and shades, on pillows, ottomans and velvet pumpkins.   A group of hanging ghosts are my favorite in this room.  They are rather cute than scary.  The settee, skirted ottoman and Louis XVI chair make the room very lady-like and elegant.

Flanked by two modernized English chairs in muted dusted pink shade fabric with the contrasting blue piping , a hand-made renaissance gilded cabinet with dark blue turtle wallpaper inside displays a  group of blue-and-whites, pumpkin crafts.  A group of chinoiserie pumpkin floral arrangement creates a beautiful focal point on a white lacquered table. I really like to use a little touch of gold everywhere.

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:
