4 Ideas to Cozy Up Your Home

Today, we are going to talk about 4  solutions that cozy up your  home while elevating your interiors with a touch of sophistication.

  1. Install wallpaper at the entry

It is the entry hall that leaves you with the first impressions of a home, and it is this space that your guests, friends and family get to see first before they explore the rest of the residence. So why not make it warm, inviting and elegant? Wallpaper is coming back huge in 2020 with some really cool modern design.

And worry about installation? If you would like to install by yourself,  peel and stick removable wallpaper might be one of your your options.

2. Have a skirted table at the corner of your room.

Well, you don’t need a perfect table, but by dressing it up in your favorite fabric, you will elevate your interiors with a touch of elegance and sophistication in a second. Plus, fabric always makes  us feel warm and inviting.

3. Is there a such thing as too many throw pillows?

A tasteful throw pillow can say a lot about you. Plus a pile of pillows add coziness to your home in no time.

Our Chic Backyard Picnic

At this strange time, it is  important to find joy in any moment. So, we decided to have a casual family picnic in our backyard last Saturday. It is spring and the weather is nice.

1IMG_3383

So under our lush lemon tree, we set up this picnic area. Yes, we want to use pink as base color since it will nicely contrasts with lush greenery and pastel spring blooms. And yes, we threw in a lot of plush pillows  just to create that super comfy, chic laid-back vibes. Who wouldn’t?

1IMG_3434

And my Gosh, this is a truly heaven!  And we love to  mix and match different patterns of textiles just for some visual interest.

Wow, it is also such a special treat to do some reading right here. The greenery, spring blooms, lemon fragrance, sunshine,the nice breeze … etc, what could be better? Is this the best season of the year to enjoy our picnic at our backyard?

1IMG_3412

It is  time to set up our  cocktail table with some beautiful potted hydrangeas.

1IMG_3399

We are going to serve some home-made cocktails without sugar, rosé, Sauvignon Blanc

fresh fruits, cheese plates… Would like to join us?

1IMG_3381

And we love mix and match different patterns of textiles just for some visual interest. We also love collecting unique  design of the wine bottles.  We went a color palette of bright red, hot pink, pale pink, Classic Blue, light blue…. This is just such a dreamy spring color scheme that makes everyone happy.

1IMG_3375

The red on blooms is so romantic and cheerful.

IMG_3431.2020-03-30 16_01_06

Well, time to serve some wines!

Sweet treats!

Importance of Indoor Air Quality

Note: All products featured on KHK Designs blogs are independently selected by us. Some of the links mentioned on this page are affiliate links. That means, when you use those links to buy products, we earn a small commission at no additional cost to you. That way we can run this website for years to come.

We spent approximately 90% of our time indoor. With practicing social distancing, quarantine, isolation or shelter-in strategies now during COV-19 pandemic , we even spend more time at home.  Indoor quality plays even more important role for our health since allergies, asthma, lung cancer and heart problems have all been linked to poor air quality. And The EPA has ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers.

Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the area. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

Pollutant Sources

There are many sources of indoor air pollution. These can include:

  • Fuel-buring combustion appliances
  • Tobacco products
  • Building materials and furnishings as diverse as:
    • Deteriorated asbestos-containing insulation
    • Newly installed flooring, upholstery or carpet
    • Cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products
  • Products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies
  • Central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices
  • Excess moisture

According to the NAFA (National Air Filtration Association) 95-98% of indoor air is made up of particles smaller than one micron. Bacteria, smoke, viruses, and lung damaging dust all fit into this category.    The filter you have in your home is designed to protect your heating and cooling system between its annual check-up and cleanings. It is NOT designed to protect you and your family. These filters don’t even keep your system clean much less filter out the other contaminants in your air. Trying to catch airborne particles that are harmful to humans with a standard filter is like using a tennis racket to kill mosquitoes. You may get a few bugs, but it’s pure luck when you do.   So having an extra air filters is one of the ways to enhance indoor air quality.  So how to choose a good quality air filter?

Most consumers have heard the acronym HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters in advertisements from manufactures of vacuum cleaners and air purifier products. But it’s easy to be confused and gloss over the fine print.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) technical standard specification for HEPA filters used by DOE contractors defines a HEPA as the filter shall exhibit a minimum efficiency of 99.97% at a test aerosol diameter of 0.3 micrometers (μm) in diameter from the air that passes through the filter.

Pay special attention to the last sentence because it is the numbers 99.97% and 0.3-micrometer that tell the only story that matters when it comes to home air purification. There are manufacturers use True HEPA (which captures up to 99.975% of airborn particles measuring 0.3 micrometers (μm) in diameter that pass through the filter) to different them from other manutacturers who use the term “True HEPA” are doing so because there are several misleading terms used by others such as “HEPA-type,” “HEPA-like,” HEPA-style,” or “99% HEPA.” “These would represent filter-based systems that do not satisfy the HEPA standard or may not have been independently tested.

That being said, let’s just summerize what we just talked about above, there are 3 criteria to choose a good quality air filter:

1.  Looking for True HEPA labels.

2. Pay attention to the description such as “captures up to 99.975% of airborne particles measuring 0.3 micrometers (μm) in diameter that pass through the filter”

3. Design is important–looking for a modern, minimalism design which will either blend in your interiors or at least will not stand out and pleasant to look at.

4 Tips on How to Stock Up Food in a Healthy Way

Everyone is probably busy with stocking up food and  grocery essentials. Just a curtsy reminder that when you stock up these supplies, please consider other people need to stock up theirs too. So be kind and thoughtful  specially at this crisis moment.

Just share some tips how we stock up our food.

1. Choose something healthy.   Those nutrients-dense food will provide us necessary vitamins, minerals, etc and help us enhance your immune system

1IMG_3159

We love millet and it is one of the healthiest staples to replace wheat or grains since it is gluten-free and grain-free. A cup of cooked millet contains about 207 calories with over 6 grams of protein, 2 grams of dietary fiber, and less than 2 grams of fat. It is rich in minerals like calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and selenium as well as essential vitamins like folate, pantothenic acid, niacin, riboflavin, and Vitamins B6, C, E, and K. Click here to learn more

2.  Have plenty fresh greens and vegetables.

1IMG_3173

 

1IMG_3058

We always get plenty of cruciferous vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables  are vegetables of the family Brassicaceae (also called Cruciferae) with many genera, species, and cultivars being raised for food production such as cauliflower, cabbage, kale, garden cress, bok choy.  

Most cruciferous veggies are rich in vitamins and minerals such as folate and vitamin K. Dark green cruciferous veggies also are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. They’re also rich in phytonutrients — plant-based compounds that may help to lower inflammation and reduce the risk of developing cancer.  Click here to learn more about cruciferous veggies’ benefits and recipe.

3. Make sure you have enough   Omega-3 fatty acid intakes.  Omega-3 (n-3) essential fatty acids are extremely healthy, and they should be an important part of your everyday diet.

Unlike other fatty acids, omega-3s are essential fatty acids, meaning that your body does not produce them on its own. You need to get them from your diet. This should be a priority because omega-3s can. Click here to read more

1IMG_3069

1IMG_31251IMG_3088

Canned sardine, canned wild-caught tuna and salmon are all great sources for your omega-3 fatty acids.  Based on several researches, canned sardine and tuna still keep all of the nutrients pretty well. And we often purchase canned fish with Safe Catch label( see the label in the above photo). Safe Catch tests every fish for mercury. Sustainably wild caught. Cooked to retain all nutrients and flavor.

Escape to Nature

We are practicing social distancing over the weekends: no gallery visits, no going to bars & restaurants as we usually do at this special moment of  coronavirus outbreak not only for us but for other people who are senior and have weaker immune system as well. This morning Dr. Anthony Fauci warned that much more needs to be done to slow the spread of the novel corona virus and help the economy cope, urging Americans to significantly curb their social activity and practice social distancing. Even though you are young and healthy, you may carry the virus without any symptom and pass them to other people who are senior and weaker.

So we spend more time hiking and it is fascinating.

 

 

It is excited to see the blossoms and colors since Spring is here.  As they said, “In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.”

 

Also they said, “Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.”

 

Stay Safe and Happy

An Artist’s Process for a Portrait Drawing

We were invited toBarakat Gallery last Saturday for LA renown contemporary artist Robert Vargas‘s new portrait works’ opening reception.  We really like how Robert’s contemporary artworks  contrast with Barakat’s ancient antique collections. It is also such an amazing learning experience by observing Robert’s creating process. As a portrait artist,  although his work is in abstract art, he spent quite some time to adjust lighting to make sure the lighting is right for his art creation process. I noticed that he did apply those lighting effects on his model’s portrait drawing, which is very fascinating,

IMG_2683

And he did spent a little time to chat with his  model and tried to understand him.

When he started the process, he started from drawing his eyes.

Then a lot of fine tuning.

6 ways to Master the Art of Mixing and Matching for Your Home Decor

We often have fun to mix  high and low, old and new and of course different aesthetics. Mixing of all kinds will add interest and character into the space.  In order to keep the cohesive vibe overall, we will have to  use some common elements to thread through the different layers.  And  here is the case study for the corner space for the project we recently designed. We would like to create a chic, fresh, elegant, polished decor  style while still keeping it inviting and cozy.  Here is how we did it—today, we are going to share 6 tips on how we artfully mix high and low, modern and classical, old and new to achieve this goal.

We  feel pretty excited to see how these stars dressed in  Classic Blue on the Academies.  It is fresh and cool. As you can tell, Classic Blue can be elegant, sexy, noble, royal, or handsome and fashion-forward. The color really makes stars look fabulous on the red carpet.

And we round up some interiors featured with Classic Blue to pair with  the above blue outfits. From lacquered midnight walls to sumptuous cobalt textiles, this timeless hue has exploded back onto the design scene in rich iterations. The royal shade’s ability to be both cool and serene or punchy and loud has made it a reliable go-to for designers.
