Behind-the-Scene Story for our Home for Holidays 2019—Family Room

Good morning. The rain is back to LA this morning.  So it is fresh yet cloudy and a little dark. I guess the perfect spot we are propally  all craving now is by a warm fireplace in a cozy festive living room. So today I am going to share our inspiration behind our Home for Holidays’ family room.

holidayfamilyroom2.jpg

For this year’s holiday show-house, we want to create a cheerful yet serene atmosphere for a restful holiday seasons. So here comes with this neutral color palette—cream, muted Dutch pink, pearl white, charcoal brown with a pop of pink and light blue.  This color palette is inviting, warm, easy to live with, yet still  reflecting a touch of sophistication with silky sheen, brass accents, crystals, fresh roses. Also, we don’t want to create a too ornate holiday decor yet still love to keep some traditional elements of the old-school charm. After all, that is why  people love Christmas.  So, we mix and match classical and modern furniture to make this family room fresh, fashion-forward, relevant with full of holiday glamour.

Fresh Christmas greenery is another key design element to create that restfulness vibe. We all love to walk–through the woods during the holidays, don’t we? So rather than giving  green junipers a heavy traditional Christmas tree decoration, we simply keep them the way they are and use pretty rustic potteries to hold these fresh natural trees. The contrast of pottery rusticness and other refined holiday decor elements in the room give eye a break. So the mood here is you may have a big family get-together and you may be alone. But whatever your holiday plan turns out to be, you always can celebrate or just chill out here.

All of the furniture we use in this family room are all designer collections. So if you are interested in any particular piece, please email us at  info@khkdesignsinteriors.com with the item number that is under each item.

4 Ways to Create a Fresh Statement out of Your Crystal Pieces

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.

  1. 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.

Second Day of November

Today is the second day of Nov. The weather is warm and beautiful. What can be better than just chilling out in the garden  and bathing in the warm and soft fall sunshine in the late afternoon like this?

Well, don’t you just love all of these rich jewel-tone colors. Fresh flowers always put a big smile on my face.

Emerald green looks great in the warm and soft fall sunlight.  Fall is not just about earthy tones, orange …. In fall, I still love my pink roses. Pink, deep dark brown, navy blue, black and white and of course emerald green—-they are such a chic, fresh yet warm color palette for this fall.

3 Home Trends from WestEdge 2019

It had been super busy in the last several days from WestEdge show to working on the on-going  projects. WestEdge is hosted every year at the end of Oct mainly to show local small home goods makers’ handcrafted products in Los Angeles and of course some global brands in kitchen and bath as well.  The show venue is usually modern and chic. I partially enjoy their outdoor lounge area in the beautiful SoCal sunshine in fall. Here are 3 homes trends we saw from this year’s show:

  1. Muted pastel color palette on tiles, ceramic objects:

The brass sculptures of tea drinking Chinese men, named “Hyson” and “Bohea” were inspired by 18th-century tea accoutrements held by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, for Chinese teas were popular in 18th-century Virginia. The historical impact of tea cannot be understated. British demand for tea wares sparked the Industrial Revolution, and a British tax on tea led to the American Revolution. Colonial Williamsburg’s bountiful collections of 18th-century tea wares – made to accommodate the new social ceremony?which are designed with a “Trend Meets Tradition” approach that keeps them fresh. The English have been smitten with Asian goods and designs “in the Chinese taste” since Catherine of Braganza brought a dowry of Asian trade routes to her marriage to King Charles II of England in 1662. The WILLIAMSBURG “Bohea” and Hyson” sculptures were motivated by a print in the Colony. Get the Price
