5 Ways to Create a Chic Country Dining Room

As fashion shows go on, we are inspired and love to get the looks from Run-way to Hallway. And also, we do have Fall in Los Angeles.  As the foliages in the whole world start to change the colors, we also crave for the feeling that make us feel unique, warm, romantic, strong, matured and homy. So what came my mind is the color combination of tangerine  and dark blue.

After those pastels and cool beach colors dominated the whole summer, this combination of warm and cool saturated colors suddenly brings us a drama. It’s modern and chic. It makes a very strong statement. This is the case study how we used this fashion combination colors in recent country-style design project and make the place pleasant and livable.

Here are 5 steps to create this fashionable dining room look:

  1. Choose what inspired us most and make it as the start point. In this project, it’s the color combination of tangerine and blue. It’s such an interesting contrast  for this country barn-style room.
  2. Paint walls and the ceiling neutral colors as the calm backdrop for the future furnishings and pops of tangerine and blue.
  3. Mix-and-match the style— have the modern clean-line furniture to give the room a fresh and youthful loom.

4. Chinoiserie on the screen and geometric patterns on the rug and Roman shades balance the energy between Yin and Yang, feminine and masculine.

5. Abstract artworks just leave  the imagination of whoever enters the room wide open.

Behind-of-the-scenes of Custom-designed Bar Stools

When we took this project, the client had a very discriminate taste on what she wanted for her house.  We had a pretty difficult time to find the right bar stools for her on the market—-needed to have revolving function, durable, french and elegant. Finally, we decided to make four for her.    The chairs are modernized Louis XVI style with gold-leaf frame and upholstered with emerald green velvet.

We did several drawings and communicated with our factory back-and-forth couple of times.  The end result is very pleasant.

6 Ways to Create a Chic Bohemian Country Style

When September is here, we start to feel the fall. One of the decor styles that has inspired me in the last several weeks is Bohemian style, the style featured with bright colors & patterns, cozy seatings, artsy mix-and-match and vibrant textiles. Aren’t those we love natural beauty for the fall? Then we had this design project and it is a country house. There are exposed beams and stone walls which make house look very organic. And the house is filled with natural light. The client wants to keep the original country style but wants the house look have fresh and updated  rather than too heavy and traditional. The client likes bright colors and feminine touches. Here we go— a chic bohemian country style for her.   Here for 6 ways how we create the look:

  1. Paint all walls light gray and all trims and ceilings bright white to create a modern clean and crisp backdrop for the later vibrant furnishings and bouncing around light while still keep the stone walls and exposed beams.  The contrast of the old and new gives the whole house a very fresh looking.
  2. Have petite  upholstered furniture spread around the house such as chairs and ottomans in jewelry tones to give it a sophisticated and feminine touch.
  3. Have bright Moroccan area rugs  in the house for the vibrant vibe.
  4. Have unmatched bohemian draperies to make the whole space whimsy, playful and elegant.
  5. Artsy arrangement of modern artworks on the fireplace and walls.
  6. Fresh flowers, please.

Hope you enjoy the above.

5 Ways to Decorate an Entry Hallway

Entry Hallway by KHK Design

It’s a fresh week again.  A grand entry at your home means a good Fengshui and a great start.  We all agree that the hallway definitely makes the first impression and sends the message about who you are.  Today, I am going to share 5 ways to decorate an entry by sharing this new hallway make-over project we just did.

  1. An elegant furniture set makes the focal point and defines the sophistication of the space. For this traditional house, we use more modern  yet still-classy furniture to contrast the old style and bring freshness into the space.
  2. A right color palette make guests feel pleasant and welcome. The ivory, coral, pink and black color palette in this foyer creates formal yet relaxing and soft atmosphere.
  3. A  runner pulls guests eyes down to the floor and draws guests to the house.  The bird-pattened  runner here adds more visual interest.
  4. A chandelier over the display table in the foyer talks to the whimsical runner and is the must for the estate like this.
  5. Pink rose arrangement on the table means Welcome.

I hope you enjoy the above tips.

All the Best
