Every year we will design Chinese New Year tabletop theme. For lunar New Year 2020, the year of the metal rat, we features the following elements:
Color Palette—embrace Pantone Color of the Year 2020—Classic Blue with touch of traditional Chinese red and pastel pink to create a modern, intimate, chic and festive decor vibe. The large area of white paint in this eat-in space balance off Classic Blue and light up the whole area. In this color palette, we have influences from Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2020–First Light, DunEdwards Color of the Year 2020 –Mint Fresh and PPT color of the Year 2020—China Porcelain.
Mix of modern and clean-line classical furniture to create a fresh, inviting, relaxing, comfy and feminine atmosphere where we are often drawn to for a holiday family get-together.
The weather drops so low in LA today. And this is just reminding us that winter is still here. Well, you might already take away all of your holiday decor that made your home cozy and warm. There is one magical item that you really should still keep it around. Yes, rug, please. As matter of the fact, you should keep several of rugs in your home–runner for your kitchen and hallway, a large area statement area rug for your living room, a faux fur rug for your relaxing corner and rug-on-rug-on-rug style to bring in pattern, color and some casual bohemian vibes. In the following, we will talk about how different style of rugs can transform and elevate your home in a second.
A touch of coziness.
For this newly designed project we just did recently, we throw a cream faux fur rug under a clean-lined modernized classical gilded chair to make the corner of this all-white room warm, cozy, inviting and romantic.
For the study room project we did several years ago, we also had this faux fur rug by the window seat to create that a cozy and relaxing zone in the study.
2. A wow factor statement.
For this entry we did several years ago in Walnut, we used an emerald green silky rug with geometric lines to eco the circle design at the edge of the entry table.
This is the entry for one of our holiday show-houses a couple of year ago. We love this large floral pattern rug at the entry to wow the guest.
3. To keep cohesive through rooms and holistic decor.
We did this modern house project last year. We actually keep the client’s Moroccan style rug and start to curate the whole house decor based on the color palette on the rug.
4. Add a touch of whimsical and interest by stacking different rugs together casually.
For this new project we just did, we actually stack two rugs together to have that extra coziness.
We are really obsessed with layering different rugs together to create visual interest.
5. Transform your home with Scandinavia chic and cleaness.

“Furniture with European-inspired detailing is trending. German and Italian influences can be found in the sloping arms of couches, knife-edge welts, metal legs, and more. I am even seeing traditional furniture brands embracing the trend, offering European silhouettes and features for the first time.” – Marie Flanigan of Marie Flanigan Interiors
3. White sofa
4. Grandmillennial Style
“As evidenced by the recent viral House Beautiful article, ‘Grandmillenial style’ is having its moment. The look is traditional design with a twist: blending elements of classic design like chinoiserie, scallops, natural fiber rugs, topiaries, and more, with a contemporary edge (think: modern art and clean lined furniture).”
5. Bold Monochromatics
“Monochromatic does not have to be pale. Colors like Cobalt Blue, Kelly Green, or even Aubergine can evoke monochromatic in a daring way, that’s full of personality and elegance.” — Jonathan Rachman of Decorist

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.
Happy Friday, guys! We were invited to different parties almost every night this week. I love those beautiful tabletop decor on each party and really thankful the organizers put up a lot of efforts to make each party sing. I hope I can share those photos I took from different parties soon. And I have to say that among all of the parties, the super stars are truly those crystal decor in all kinds and they elevate everyone’s mood and make the night so special and prestigious.
I remember that when I started my own design business back then, I had a client who own so many antique crystal pieces, I was like wow those pieces were very beautiful but they were kind of old school decoration too. As I started to acquire more and more pieces for my clients and myself, I start to realize the ultimate beauty of those hand-made crystal pieces and stunned by a lot of new modern design. I then started to study what will be the best ways to display those crystal art-crafts in different interiors. And shockingly enough, almost all of my clients no matter what styles they prefer to, they fall in love with those crystal pieces. So today, I am going to share 5 ways to display your crystal decor items and make them shine.
Crystal pieces are made to shine, so please don’t hide them away or wrapped them away. Let them be who they are and shine.
2. It doesn’t matter it is a crystal bowel or crystal vase, it doesn’t matter how old those crystal pieces are and how out-of-date they are, one of the best way to show off your crystal pieces is to use them for holding your fresh flowers.
3. Use your crystal bowels or vases as candle holders. Everybody is going to love that flicking candle flames dazzling through crystals.
4. Yes, for your tabletop to host your beautiful fruits and nuts.

We talked about the several popular dark blues from different brandsyesterday and today we are going to focus on Classic Blue pairing with white. Here are some samples.

The Pantone Color Institute has just announced that its 2020 Color of the Year PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a deep blue shade that’s at once comforting and relatable.
“The sky at dusk – it’s not a midnight blue, it’s thoughtful, but it’s not so deep and mysterious,” she said. “It speaks to our feelings of anticipation, when you think about the sky at dusk, the day isn’t over. You’re thinking, what’s ahead of us? It’s reassuring, but thought-provoking. It highlights our desire for this dependable, anchoring foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era. We’re living in a time that requires trust and faith and confidence. We all see this blue sky and can relate to it, it’s approachable.”
This shade of blue is nostalgia yet modern, classic yet fresh, rich yet crisp, thoughtful yet still daring to look forward and take bold actions. It is calm, confidence, trusty and noble. This hue is both genderless and seasonless, making it both accessible and desirable, for people in all walks of life.
Here are some inspirations:
We have featured this hue for one of our latest projects in Oct:
And in our Gift Guides 2019, we featured many deep blue-tone objects:
The theme behind our Home for Holidays 2019/2020 is being festive yet without being too much traditional and ornate. We stay with a neutral color palette like pearl white, white-on-white, cream, various brown shades, wood tones while incorporating gold, silver, crystals, muted fashion-forward colors to light up the spaces. The flowers and greenery definitely make the spaces alive and cheerful.
For the dining room, we use light lavender hand-painted Chinoiserie wallpaper to create a very relaxing, calming and feminie feel which is balanced off by masculine dark brown upholtered dining chairs. Also we use a lot of large-scale sculpture-like vases and urns to mix and match with small delicate Christmas ornaments.
