In the year of 2020, we want to go a little bit extra bold in our holiday show-house design. The reason is simple that we are all so desperate to go on a journey of adventure after we have stayed in our home for so long. As we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel( yes, several of vaccines for COVID-19 are coming), let’s still practice all of the safe social manners. And rather, let’s play a little bit of magic at home. In this year’s holiday show-house, we introduced some bold patterns such as leopard prints and folks art. We put things that don’t seem belong to each other together to create fun, playful and the one-of-the-kind holiday decor that helps express ourselves with some cheers and dreams in this special moment.
We usually have a back-to-back workout schedule over the weekend –long distance hiking and running. So it is pretty tiring at the end of the day. And recover is the key for us to get back to the weekly track. We usually do carbs loading over the weekends and find it is really help accelerate the recovery. One of our favorite things to do after the hiking and running is to just chill out in our backyard by the fireside and enjoy some garden fresh–some we got from the farmer’s market and some we picked up from our backyard. We feel those rich autumn colors really put us in a festive mood.
We have blogged about Thanksgiving decor tips in the past several years from the front door, entry decor to tabletop and food. We thought it would be a good idea to put them together here in case you need a little bit extra inspiration to host your own Thanksgiving dinner party during this on-going corona-virus pandemic. Our mantra is always about creating memorial moments in life.
And yes we all know that means a good-looking table top and some interesting recipes besides traditional ThanksGiving dishes. So, we share 6 tips to set up table-tops in an elegant way and hope you will get inspired. After all, life is about celebrating every special moment, specially those with family.

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. Read more…
Christmas and New year are officially in count-down now. Hope you are in a mood for just being festive to celebrate the end of 2018.
One thing that fascinates me about holiday is the cheerful jewel-tone color palette. I feel that most people are just too scared to use the rich jewel-tone colors on the regular days. But those colors are not just for holidays and they do make you happier and enhances your appetite. And most importantly, they are from Nature. So this rich color jewel-tone palette can actually put you at ease and remind you it is time to celebrate. I finally find the time to put together our Thanksgiving table set and will sure update this post soon. Enjoy! Read more…
Hope everyone just had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. We usually dined out or went to relatives houses for a big family Thanksgiving dinner. This year, we decided to do something different maybe because of LA’s traffic. I am just joking although it is kind of true. The major motivation is that we have some fine China at home and we want to eat healthy as much as we can. Plus I was in a good mood to make some fresh flower arrangements and a Thanksgiving tables cape. So here is what we did. Read more…
Hope you feel these tips are helpful. This year, together,let’s pray every family safe and well.
We often found our inspiration by looking into nature. Nature always knows what is the best balance in terms of colors, textures and scales. In our recent hiking trips, we were fascinated how color of blue, lavender nicely contrast with earthy tones such as brown, taupe , stone grey and etc…
As our annual tradition, we continue our Holiday Show House of KHK Designs 2020-2021. And this year’s color scheme is inspired by the colors we were most attracted to when we hiked among city lines, deep mountains and coastal lines along SoCal in the year of 2020, a quiet special year for all of us.
Holiday Show-House of KHK Designs 2020–2021—Living Room
In our holiday show-house living room this year, we use different shades of purple as the primary color complemented by navy blue, brown, pink and orange. The overall atmosphere here in this living room is warm, inviting yet chic and romantic. The gold brass on the ottoman, floor lamp and chandelier elevate this living room with a touch of high style and glamor.
