Holiday ShowHouse of KHK Designs 2018—2019

It might be a little bit late to post our Holiday ShowHouse 2018–2019.  But come on, it’s still Jan of 2019 and Chinese New year is coming.  So it’s time to be festive and it’s time to celebrate.

The inspiration of our Holiday ShowHouse 2018—2019 is inspired by Pantone Color of the Year 2019–Live Coral—fashionable, bold, youthful, energetic and innovative.  After several years of muted color palettes, millennium pink and grey, we feel it is time to break through to celebrate holidays with something fresh. Therefore, we are able to stay prospective for the future.  Meanwhiles, Holidays are truly about traditions. We mix and match traditions with modern, Live Coral with vintage pink, emerald green with hot pink, camel with purple, Chinoiserie accessories with minimalism furniture, geometric patterns with classic forms and fine crystals with organic ceramic.   The end result of this year’s holiday show house decoration is fun, edgy, playful  yet still elegant and sort of traditional.  Enjoy!

Weekend Brunch Tabletop

It’s fun, fun, fun to host our own Sunday brunch at home because we can control what we put in the mouth and specially,  it’s the beginning of the summer time and the weather is so nice.   What we do have a lot now are floras and greeneries.    Peonies are in the season in LA.  So there is no reason not to go big on greenery  and floral table decor. But I rather do them in a very organic and  simple way.   Here is the video we shot for one of our weekend brunch tabletop.

 

I hope you enjoy watching the video.  Here are 3 take-aways for an elegant yet casual tabletop setting:

  1. Have a lot of greeneries accentuated by in-season flowers.
  2. Have a main color theme for the table-setting—we used blue-and-white in the video—the perfect color palette to celebrate the beginning of the summer.
  3. Just schedule time to do it over the weekend.  You are going to enjoy it a lot!

Small Outdoor Living Space Before & After

 

We have 90+ degree weather for several days.  It looks like summer is here.  Well,  the weather in LA is always such a drama.  But with Memorial Day next week and official summer beginning on June 22nd, we know now it’s the great time to plan outdoor living for summer and enjoy nature as much as we can.

Outdoor living space can be large, luxurious and also can be as simple as a  small area that is dedicated to get-together lounging and entertaining.  Although it’s small, there are  always ways to make it interesting.   The outdoor living space we created in the video is French country style featuring with blue-stone circular pavers around the tree, French bistro chairs, teak dining table, wrought iron bench.   The orange fashionable umbrella adds a pop of color while perennial plants such as  ivy, iris, bird paradise lend a romantic feel to the space.

 

 

Enjoy and have a great Sunday!

Kitchen to Relax

After a long and busy week day, we want to come back  home that provides refuge, and comfort.  It’s a place that we can  chill out and relax  in a style.   One of The kitchen trends today is to create live-in feeling in the kitchen, which often incorporates built-in banquette seating to make a kitchen a secondary living room.   The kitchen we designed in the video features with Moroccan tiles, antique Louis XVI chairs, custom built-in banquette, a mid-century wood table and modern brass chandelier… etc.  Mixing and matching of different styles infuses playful yet elegant vibes to this urban kitchen.

5 Keys to Create a Chic and Functional Home office

There are 5 keys to create a chic and functional home office:

  1. Have a solid floor plan to think through how you are going to use the space–working desk, lounge area, meeting zone…
  2. Have a chic color palette to make you focus yet relaxing.  The color palette in this project is pink, blue and black. It’s chic, youthful.
  3. Have one strong statement. We painted ceiling in pink. This makes the space very whimscal.
  4. Keep it symmetrical—the key to make small space look bigger and organized.
  5. Have greenery—green plants relax you and put you in a cheerful mood.

Happy Wednesday

Pretty in Pink

In my last post, I shared 5 quick ways to decorate your houses for Christmas.  One of the quick ways is to repaint your wall colors.  I will focus on color of Pink in today’s blog.

50 Shades of Pink?

 

50shadesofpink.jpg

Pink is romantic and intimate, feminine, loving, caring and extremely considerate. It tones down the physical passion from the red color and replaces it with a gentle and loving energy.  In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive color that inspires warm and comforting feelings. The color pink gives the feeling that everything will go well or be okay. Most people have heard of the saying “everything is rosy”. It may also indicate good health and success.

Pink in Interiors

Applying  Pink in interiors can create chic, fashionable, cheerful, feminine  feeling. Combining it with darker colors like dark blue, dark green, black or gray, you can make the color pink stronger and more sophisticated.  Here are some room exmples:

Salmon Pink

Another project we did this year. Pink wall provides such an elegant backdrop for the artwork –The Lady in Red. This salmon pink is rich, passionate and classy. I really like the way how it pairs with cream panellings.
