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.

6 Ways to Create an Enveloped Cozy Dining Room

In case you don’t have that much natural light in your dining room, it will be a perfect time to create an intimate dining space with an enveloped jewel-box specially when the chill weather is coming. We did the exact same thing for the dining room in the hill house in Orange County.  Here are the 3 tips how we did:

 

diningroom7.jpg

Here are the 3 tips how we did:

  1. Have a dark monochrome color platte on the walls and flooring.
  2. Use crisp white marble and cream upholstered chairs to create a nice contrast.
  3. Have a good lighting design: the over-sized drum chandelier is the focal point of the whole room.
  4. Have a jewel-tones tablewares and decor objects to dress up the table—we use some glass pumpkins for the seasonal fall decor.
  5. Use upholstered folding screens to invite warmth.
  6. Have a touch of gold like the way we use on the picture frame and brass candle holder.

7 Rooms that Use Stools to Elevate Their Decor

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:

109574.charlie.co.design.portfolio.interiors.living.jpg
A pair of the yellow square and dark blue poufs make the space feel casual, cozy and relaxing and also emphasis the color scheme of the room. 
38955.pappas.miron.portfolio.interiors.living.vignette.jpg
A pair of ceramic blue garden stools here intrigue a conversation.

The furry stool here remind us of fall season.
107951.fiona.leonard.interiors.portfolio.interiors.family.room.jpg
It’s always nice to have some cozy extra seats and a pop of color.
109861.summer.thornton.design.inc.portfolio.interiors.great.room.living.family.room.jpg
The color and pattern on these two elegant stools add interest to the room.
100970.fawn.galli.interiors.portfolio.interiors.living.architectural.detail.jpg
The lime fabric upholster stool here is such a fashion statement.

The gold stool not only serves as a handy coffee table but also add a touch of sophistication to the room.

5 Rooms with a Good Balance of Yin &Yang

There is always a  balance for a good room design. A feminine room will stay timeless with some masculine elements. Here are 5 room that incorporate a good balance between Yan and Yan.

Black-and-white -alternate Marvic stripe wallpaper inspired by menswear nicely contrasts with elegant red draperies and roman shade.

“The vintage David Hicks love seat, upholstered in a Rubelli tweed and brightened by pillows by the Rug Company, is joined by an 18th-century Venetian grotto table and a 1930s gueridon by Jansen.”

Custom-made sofas clad in a Rogers & Goffigon dark navy blue wool flannel create a nice balance with the feminine cream background, elegant draperies and a round antique brass mirror over the fireplace.

a quiet place with color palette of gray, dark blue and black and wood tones.

This clean-lined, almost monochromic  dining room maybe is the best place to unwind and reflect. The light-blue  candles and a touch of mini fresh flower arrangement  create the vibes of optimistic and being present.

d0309a382652037ad5dca19eb35fafbd
It is always a good idea to create some vignettes at home since they create different moods. This unfussy one above  is kind of Zen-like–simple yet sophisticated and reminds us of being  the moment.

An uncluttered kitchen maybe is the best way to calm the mind.

Different shades of blue will definitely promote relaxation and serenity.

A Day of Traveling Part II

 

We just had another big earth quick last night in SoCal after the 6.4 one on 4th July! It is 7.1!  Send love and prayer to people who are affected seriously. And I followed Dr. Lucy Jones from CalTech last night the whole night for her analysis on what’s going on. Somehow, listening to her gives me a sense of peace.

 

Well, when natural disasters happen, we know we need to appreciate all of the beautiful things around us more.  So, guys, let’s continue our Day of Traveling—Part II. There are a lot of beautiful photos for the modern classic interiors I caught during the trip, so it’s time to  sit back and relax.

Arte-decor clubbing house.  The geometric black-and-white rug does the wander for this room. And of course, the brown leather tufted mid-century chairs, the fireplace and wooden wall panelings add the layer of old school traditions  and bring the stories and warmth to the space.

Dark and Handsome space.

Sneak Peek of a Room Make-Over

It’s Monday again. Luckily, the temperature in LA lowers 10 degree.  It’s only 90 degree.  I know.   But if you head the news, LA was over 100 degree over the weekend. It was kind of crazy.  Since today’s weather is better, I am in the mood to post something nice.  We are in the middle of finishing this room make-over. The details will follow. Here is the sneak peek.

The Romance of Air, Light and Beautiful Things

Tasks on Monday always include scheduling the whole week. I like to rise up earlier and do some readings to get inspired.   This will be the perfect room for me on Monday mornings.  The serene color palette of pale lavender, peach and warm grey calms me down.  The stipe wallpaper makes me feel organized and uncluttered. The bright fresh flowers and the blue chandelier sparkle my imagination and make me feel excited and joyful.  Well, what I enjoy most is this airy and natural light-filled atmosphere.   What other places I want to be at this moment?
