We all need a little bit inspiration with the current pandemic situation. Today we will take you to a gorgeous modernized Spanish colonial house in West Hollywood and it is filled with amazing art and color. This beautiful home is owned by music and fashion industry veteran Kent Belden and husband Dr. Louis Re and designed by AD 100 Brigette Romanek. We first met Barigette in one of the seminars she spoke on design week in PDC. She is such a warm, nice, approachable elegant lady and her design is often vibrant, fashion-forward and unexpected. Here are some of our highlights from the house.
We have talked about blue and red, today we are going to talk about patriotic color white.
White is the lightest color and is achromatic (having no hue). It is the color of fresh snow, chalk and milk, and is the opposite of black. White objects fully reflect and scatter all the visible wavelengths of light. One of the biggest trends in 2020 is Off-White Color collections from different paint brands. Inherently sophisticated and endlessly versatile, Off-White collections often offers subtle nuances of whites that suit tranquil, serene environments as well as creates color-enhancing accents for dynamic spaces.
All White Kitchens
All white kitchen style has dominated the market for years and still stays strong with more evolving elements.
We are impressed by how the design team transformed this 1980s Georgian-style home with high glamor and edge while keeping its classical bone. The house was originally designed by local architect Paul Turney and built to such a high level. So the design team decided just to add new flooring and windows with larger panes, an iron stair rail in lieu of a more traditional wooden version, and a stone surround for the front door rather than tearing down the original structure. Other changes include opening up the kitchen and incorporating an adjacent family room, reconfiguring the master bathroom and adding a covered back patio for easier outdoor living. Here are highlights of our favorite spaces. Let’s take a tour together.
We are continuing our 5 Celebrities’ Styles at Home series today to start a whole new week. Today will be our episode 2—Tony Burch at Home. You can click here to read episode I.
Tory Burch at Home
Tory Burch (néeRobinson; born June 17, 1966) is an American fashion designer, businesswoman and philanthropist. She is the Executive Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of her own brand, Tory Burch LLC. She was listed as the 73rd most powerful woman in the world by Forbes in 2015.
And here is a little bit more info about her on Forbes.
Fashion mogul Tory Burch’s preppy-chic lifestyle brand brings in $1.5 billion in sales from apparel, footwear, watches, accessories, and fragrances.
The art history grad worked with designers Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang before opening a boutique in New York City’s Nolita neighborhood in 2004.
In December 2018, Burch became executive chairman and chief creative officer of the $1.5 billion (est. revenue) fashion company that bears her name.
Pierre-Yves Roussel, a former LVMH executive and Burch’s husband, took over the CEO position.
In March 2019, Bank of America committed $100 million to her decade-old charitable foundation that has been helping women entrepreneurs since 2014.
New York Apartment
Artfully layered furnishings, each in vibrant shades of red, orange or green, sit by opulent wallpaper or deco-style monochrome walls. Prints—of flora and fauna, geometric, all ebullient—are recurring fixtures. So are artworks, both large and small, Chinese pottery and old collectables. The overall effect is a luxurious riot of bright hues and patterns. “It’s eclectic,” says Burch, “and very much me.”
“I’m not a big collector, not compared to them at least. What I have always liked about my parents is how they used to gather things together, and in the house, not because of their value but because of their style and beauty. I try to do the same with the items I purchase. I just love mixing pieces from different periods. The old with the new.”
Today, we are going to tour the super stylish Creative Director of VistaJet – the world’s premiere private aviation service – Nina Flohr’s London home. You can clickhere and here to read the first two episodes of our global home tours.
We love her jewel-tone warm color palettes, the mix of elegant textile patterns , sumptuous furnishing material finishes and a cozy and laid-back vibe. Let’s take a look together.
Wether it is formal, or very casual, a dining room in all kinds of styles–modern contemporary, coastal, bohemian, mid-century modern, Scandinavia often makes a home homy since this is the place where families get together and chill at the end of the day. My design philosophies are: it needs to be beautiful so it can please eye and it also needs to be comfortable so we can totally relax here.
Take a peek at this our recently designed modern classic dining room.

Ok, today, we are going to talk about Renée Zellweger’s stunning Baby Blue dress on the 77th Golden Globe. Obviously, she is not only one of the Best Actress but also one of the best dressed.
This is Zellweger’s fourth Golden Globe win. She won her first Golden Globe in 2001 for her rule in “Nurse Betty.” The next came in 2003 for “Chicago,” followed by 2004 for “Cold Mountain.”
The 47-year-old actress, whose portrayal of Judy Garland in Rupert Goold’s biopic, arrived at the 2020 Golden Globes in a strapless baby blue custom-made Armani Privé gown, featuring a thigh-high slit and crystal-embroidered piping. Zellweger pulled her blonde hair back in a loose updo and wore a soft pink lipstick. She accessorized with matching Jimmy Choo pumps and a gold cuff. Renée completed her outfit with a David Webb gold and diamond bracelet.
She does look stunning in that baby blue gown. So the look is sleek, modern, chic yet classic at the same time. Our take-aways to create Renee’s timeless modern classic look:
Minimalism yet elegant form
Yes, ice blue please,
A touch of glamor—her gold bracelet and crystal pipings on her blue gown
Have something loose( her loose hair style) to relax the overall look.
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.
Fall decor is all about layers and colors. So I feel it is an exciting season to create something fresh, warm and inviting in the chilled weather. At the end of the day, we all love to come back a beautiful home and rest well. Plus, as we all know, the holiday season is approaching. So we can always start somewhere to make some changes. Since we are on the way to wrap our hill project in Orange county, I am going to talk about fall decor we incorporated for the entry.
As you can see the house has a white crisp and clean-lined walls and ceilings and they are providing the perfect backdrop for the bold abstract artwork and jewel-tone decor objects. Here are 3 ways that we create this fall decor:
Mix-and-match: The modernized regency dark walnut center table is such a nice contrast with the white contemporary architecture. The bold abstract art is toned down a little bit by the classical blue-striped wallpaper making the space more livable.
A touch of gold: The brass mid-century chandelier and brass candle holders on the center table add a touch of glamor to the space.
Use upholstered pieces: The Upholstered screen and ottomans soften the contemporary entry.
Have some signature seasonal pieces: Yes, velvet pumpkins with our favorite fall colors indicate it is about time to celebrate the harvesting.
