Wether it is formal, or very casual, a dining room in all kinds of styles–modern contemporary, coastal, bohemian, mid-century modern, Scandinavia often makes a home homy since this is the place where families get together and chill at the end of the day. My design philosophies are: it needs to be beautiful so it can please eye and it also needs to be comfortable so we can totally relax here.
Take a peek at this our recently designed modern classic dining room.

We would think that decorating 20,000 square-foot estate should be a daunting work. LA-based decorator Lonni Paul recently just transformed such a big job for real estate developer Ted Foxman’s 20,000 square-foot Bel Air family home in a seemly-effortless way.
We mean, the house is big, just imagine it–overlooking the expansive Pacific Ocean, eight bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms, the property is filled with just about every amenity one could desire in a forever home. The first question popping on our mind is how she started her decorating job with such a colossal home. Paul is such a genius designer and is no stranger to design projects of this magnitude, as a number of her former clients have resided in areas like Saudi Arabia, where properties are typically on the larger scale. And it also comes down what the clients are really looking for -“We wanted a light, airy, positive energy to be everywhere—large spaces that felt cozy and comfortable, and something that was widely appealing to anyone,” Foxman says of his vision for the property. We think Paul did a fabulous job to reach her clients’ goals. When we go through the album of the finished project, we can feel thE causal relaxing California coziness with a high style. We specially like how she approached decoration for the powder room and dining room—“I wanted to have some elements of surprise; spaces that were a little more offbeat than the rest of the home, but still elegant in their own way,” Paul says.
We also love kitchen, master bath , herss closet and outdoor patio. Let’s take a look :
The beginning of the new year is a great time to create a new look for your home. How excited it is! Today we are going to share 8 tips to fresh up your small spaces. But first of all, we will need to have a right mindset—a small space can have a big style. We guess you are with us. So please read on and see if any of the following advises can be of help to you.
Step 1: Choose a small space that you use daily and need an update to make this space organized and stylish so you feel your life can be on the track in 2020. They can be your kitchen open shelves, your pantry, your powder room, your entry,…etc. And of course your dress room. You may say that I don’t have a room for dressing up myself. That is ok. It can be a corner of your bedroom or your closet or your master bath. What ever it is, we will need some essentials to make things happen. All right, so today we are going to use dress room or dress space as a case study.
We actually just re-designed this dress room from a closet. A good thing about this closet is that it has a tall window. So step 2 to transform any small space is to bring in a lot of natural light if you are lucky. If that is not your case, you always can throw in some table lamps, floor lamps or indirection LEDs to create pretty cozy atmosphere.
Step 3 is to have a fresh paint for your small space. A new coat of paint will change your space in a second. If your small space has a lot of light, we recommend to go for light color just like we did for this small dress-up room. And if your small space is a complete dark space without any window, we recommend to use rich tones to create an enveloped jewel box. So you can totally relax there with your weekend home-made cocktails or Kabucha tea.
Step 4: Upholster anything you have in that space, it can be a vanity chair , a makeup desk or a bench. You can even add some trims for your upholstered piece just like the way we added Grace key trims for the below makeup desk. The trim detail will uplift your small space in a big way.
Step 5: Layer up different styles and different elements to make your small space fun and interesting with your personality. We add a pretty modern pillow in this dress room to break away from the dressy style and still have the pillow in blush color to keep the cohesive vibe.
Step 6: Have sparkling crystals to make your small space dazzling.
Step 7: Have some fresh flowers or preserved flowers to make your small space alive.
Step 8: Yes, art please.

Ok, today, we are going to talk about Renée Zellweger’s stunning Baby Blue dress on the 77th Golden Globe. Obviously, she is not only one of the Best Actress but also one of the best dressed.
This is Zellweger’s fourth Golden Globe win. She won her first Golden Globe in 2001 for her rule in “Nurse Betty.” The next came in 2003 for “Chicago,” followed by 2004 for “Cold Mountain.”
The 47-year-old actress, whose portrayal of Judy Garland in Rupert Goold’s biopic, arrived at the 2020 Golden Globes in a strapless baby blue custom-made Armani Privé gown, featuring a thigh-high slit and crystal-embroidered piping. Zellweger pulled her blonde hair back in a loose updo and wore a soft pink lipstick. She accessorized with matching Jimmy Choo pumps and a gold cuff. Renée completed her outfit with a David Webb gold and diamond bracelet.
She does look stunning in that baby blue gown. So the look is sleek, modern, chic yet classic at the same time. Our take-aways to create Renee’s timeless modern classic look:
Minimalism yet elegant form
Yes, ice blue please,
A touch of glamor—her gold bracelet and crystal pipings on her blue gown
Have something loose( her loose hair style) to relax the overall look.

We were totally blew away by his all-white angle-like new look . It is super cool, fresh, creative, stunning while still keeping the classical vibes. The sparkling boots, the staple in 90s, are becoming popular recently. We love the all-white color palette. So the truth is that white is always classical and timeless no matter what the current trendy color palettes are. However, to make white stand out, layering and accessorizing are playing such vital roles. Here is what we think the best glamorous interiors to pair with his stunning white outfit: Glamorous all-white bedroom featured with plush white carpet, elegant white sheer drapes, silky bedding set and lamp shades. We love how the mixing-and-matching of traditional and mid-century modern styles. The tassel fringes on the white upholstered chairs truly make such a grandeur.

Hi, guys, how’s your last day of 2019 going so far? As usual, I suddenly came out some ideas from nowhere on how we are going to celebrate NYE 2019 when I woke up this morning. So I have being busy so far and this is so normal for me on any Eves.
First, the sun is out and the temperature is getting higher today. So I bathed about half an hour in the beautiful sunshine in my lush backyard and feel like a new-born baby after a week-long cold and gloomy weather. I guess this is a great way to finish 2019.
Then I have a desire to learn a little bit of the Ball Drop history because I just read that Waterford finished their crystal panel installation at Time Square for tonight’s Ball Drop.
So here is the little history about the Ball Drop: the first fall drop started in 1907 and the ball was made of wood and iron with 100 incandescent bulbs designed by Artkraft Strauss.
Since then, there are several updates on the ball design. There are altogether 7 versions. in 1999, to celebrate the arrival of the new millennium, the fourth-version ball was replaced by a new design constructed by Waterford Crystal. This fourth ball, measuring 6 feet (1.8 m) in diameter and weighing 1,070 pounds (490 kg), incorporated a total of over 600 halogen bulbs, 504 triangle-shaped crystal panels provided by Waterford, 96 strobe lights, and spinning, pyramid-shaped mirrors. The ball was constructed at Waterford’s factory in Ireland, and was then shipped to New York City, where the lighting system and motorized mirrors were installed.
In honor of the ball drop’s centennial anniversary, a brand new fifth design debuted for New Year’s Eve 2008. Once again manufactured by Waterford Crystal with a diameter of 6 feet (1.8 m), but weighing 1,212 pounds (550 kg), it used LED lamps provided by Philips (which can produce 16,777,216 or 224colors), with computerized lighting patterns developed by the New York City-based lighting firm Focus Lighting. The ball featured 9,576 energy-efficient bulbs that consumed the same amount of electricity as only 10 toasters. The 2008 ball was only used once, and was placed on display at the Times Square Visitors Center following the event.
2008–2009 Ball Drop Times Square
For 2009, a larger version of the fifth ball was introduced—an icosahedralgeodesic sphere lit by 32,256 LED lamps. Its diameter is twice as wide as the 2008 ball, at 12 feet (3.7 m), and contains 2,688 Waterford Crystal panels, with a weight of 11,875 pounds (5,386 kg). It was designed to be weatherproof, as the ball would now be displayed atop One Times Square nearly year-round following the celebrations.
Yearly themes for the ball’s crystal panels continued; from 2008 to 2013, the ball contained crystal patterns that were part of a Waterford series known as “World of Celebration”, including themes such as “Let There Be Light” and “Let There Be Peace”. For 2014, all the ball’s panels were replaced, marking a new theme series known as “Greatest Gifts”, beginning with “Gift of Imagination”.
The numerical sign indicating the year (which remains atop the tower along with the ball itself) uses Philips LED lamps. The “14” digits for 2014 used Philips Hue multi-color LED lamps, allowing them to have computerized lighting cues. And you can read the rest story by clicking here.
So basically the ball we saw today was constructed in 2009 and Waterford changes the triangle panel design yearly based on the different themes. Here are some photos for this year’s triangle panel design:
192 new triangles adorned with the 2020 Gift of Goodwill pattern of three pineapples, the international symbol for hospitality. The new Gift of Goodwill design features three pineapples, the traditional image of hospitality and goodwill.
A select group of 100 Waterford employees — from engineers, glassblowers and technicians — are involved in the design and manufacture of the New Year’s Eve Ball, a process that begins in mid-January.
And of course you can watch their ball drop live stream tonight on their website.
In case you’ll be ringing in 2020 with a glass of bubbly in hand, watching the New Year‘s Eve Ball descend from its flagpole atop One Times Square and crooning. Let’s get cozy in style. I have some recommendations for you:
Hi, guys, happy Boxing Day. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day. In US, we are back to work today and in UK, I guess your guys may have a crazy shopping day today just like the way we are on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. I did both and quite understand that hectic shopping experiences. If the physical shopping is not your thing( I know some of you may really enjoy that), I have something quite special for you today. But first thing first, I would love to show your our Christmas table because tabletop setting is always one of my favorites to do during the holidays. I just purely love all of the creative processes.
The flowers and greenery for our Christmas tabletop—yes, they are garden-fresh and are all from our backyard. I used Juniper branches, lemons, lemon leaves, camellias, red Christmas berries. They really help make such a lush and festive centerpiece for our Christmas tabletop. I love fresh real plants, branches and flowers. The natural smell always make me feel we are hosting a party in an outdoor wonderland.
2. Vintage plates. It is quite special to use some vintage plates on Christmas day to show off our special dishes. I always appreciate the details on those vintage pieces.
3. We’ve got some special drinks in stunning crystal cocktail glasses for this year’s Christmas–keto egg-nog
4. Last but not the least, we had some of these cuteClassic Bluecrystal bear miniatures and they truly light up our Christmas dining-table.
Well the special thing here in today’s blog is that since we use a lot of Waterford crystals and Wedgwood plates for our tabletops and would like you to know that they are both offering some amazing after-Christmas deals and you definitely want to check them out either for your NYE tabletop or Chinese New Year’s Table or whatever that special event in the year of 2020. Don’t you agree with me that life is about celebrating about every l moment ? Here are their offerings:
Happy Monday, guys, one day to Christmas Eve. We had a busy weekends and scrolled around the town to experience SoCal Christmas festive. I will soon share some of our fabulous experience here on our blog . Please stay tuned with us.
So for those who still have not made their Christmas decor ready and for those who want to make the perfect final touch and want to continue their beautiful holiday deco through New Year and even through Chinese New Year, I have something very special for you. Yes, bar carts. They can be a very simple open shelves you just grab from Ikea or Amazon, or some fancy designer collection with gold or silver leave finishes. For whatever the style, I got you all covered today. First thing first, let’t take a look some inspirations. I guarantee these bar cart ideas will warm up your heart immediately and make you just want to jump start your own bar cart stying immediately.
So what do you think? After going through all of the above beautiful pictures, I bet we all feel that bart carts are must-haves for our home right? These bar carts not only serve as decorative pieces but also a functional full bars, isn’t that cool? You can style them the way you want–classical, boho, Scandinavia modern…
And of course, we styled our bart cart for our Home for the Holidays 2019 too. Check it out:
As you can see here , by just adding some holiday greenery, sparkling unique wine glasses and our whiskey collections, the bar cart suddenly become our holiday decor super star. So here are 4 ways to style your bar carts for this holiday season:
Focus on essentials. All you need are a few quality spirits to make the classics, a good set of cocktail tools(lime squeezer, muddler, strainer, and mixing tin are key), and some interesting glassware. Plus, buying less means you can splurge on higher-quality spirits. If you have a surplus of wine or liquor, choose the best-looking bottles and store the rest in the pantry.
Use pretty accessories for a layer of Interest and playfuness. Now that you’ve got your basics, it’s time for a shot of style. Color, pattern, and texture all come into play when styling your bar car. Vintage bar accessories such as cocktail stirs or picks are also a charming addition.
Go green and red palette with a touch of crystals, brass and silvers.
Pair with a stylish elegant chair or an art work to create that ultimate holiday vignette.
What can be more excited than setting up a festive Christmas table? And the best part is that we always can try a new fresh color palette.

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.
