My Dining-room Makeover

Hi, guys, Happy Saturday!  As usual, I love to work in my garden a little bit earlier in the morning just to refresh my mind and feel good.  My backyard garden looks  so green and lush now.

A San Gabriel Modern House—Entry Before and After

Decorating  is usually the final touch to make the room look finished with personality.   In today’s blog, I would like to share one of our recent projects—a San Gabriel Modern House—Entry Before and After.

The client remolded her house not long ago—painted the whole  house, changed the floor and re-did the kitchen. However somehow, the client felt that she might need a professional interior designer help her  put everything together and finish the house. Here are several steps we did to create that chic, modern yet inviting  space.

Entry Before and After

The client used to have a much smaller chest with a  burst mirror hanging  above it at her entry as it showed in the following first  photo.  What we did is to replace that  short and bulky  chest with  a long yet sleek marble-top console to make the whole vignette look modern and more proportional.  Also, we used classic black houndstooth wallpaper to elevate the space.   The muted multi-color artwork and jewel-toned  glass vases are highlights  for the vignette adding touch of elegance and youthfulness to the entry.  The greenery underneath the console makes the space alive.

Last but not least is the proper lighting for the whole entry vignette since there is not that much natural light in this area. We used adjustable LED ceiling  light fixture with warm light to light up the entry.

We also replaced the original cabinets with a bi-folding door and simple shelving system.

Underneath the stair and by the side of entry, we installed a pull-out rack, a bench and an artwork together to form a casual, relaxing yet functional  vignette set.

A Day of Traveling Part II

 

We just had another big earth quick last night in SoCal after the 6.4 one on 4th July! It is 7.1!  Send love and prayer to people who are affected seriously. And I followed Dr. Lucy Jones from CalTech last night the whole night for her analysis on what’s going on. Somehow, listening to her gives me a sense of peace.

 

Well, when natural disasters happen, we know we need to appreciate all of the beautiful things around us more.  So, guys, let’s continue our Day of Traveling—Part II. There are a lot of beautiful photos for the modern classic interiors I caught during the trip, so it’s time to  sit back and relax.

Arte-decor clubbing house.  The geometric black-and-white rug does the wander for this room. And of course, the brown leather tufted mid-century chairs, the fireplace and wooden wall panelings add the layer of old school traditions  and bring the stories and warmth to the space.

A New New York Vintage Restaurant in Vegas

Whenever I go to Vegas, I always love to schedule some time to check out the new restaurants.  Ken Fulk is one of my favorites designers based in New York and I follow his Instagram. He recently posted this awesome restaurant he designed —Sadelle’s ,  Bellagio.   It is kind of  vintage New York vibe, very chic.  I really like the color palette–pink, green, blue and gold— he used for the restaurant and decided to visit this time for my KBIS trip.

 

KF-1
This is the shot from Bellagio Botanic Garden. Love all pale-blue ceilings and wall panels.  The first impression—very un-Vegas but Paris-inspired instead.

KF-5
love how he plays drapery panels
KF-6
Open air yet still inviting and intimate thanks to the elegant to-the-floor drapery panels.
KF-7

KF-8
Lounge area with a lot of curves. 
KF-9
seating area—love the emerald green couch and flower pink chairs

KF-10

KF-11
 Pleated brass wall scones—classic vibes

I think the main successes  for this restaurant project:

  1. Vintage and classic color palette;
  2. Drapes and upholstery soften the 10,000 square foot space
  3.  Intimate lighting complements soft furnishings, wood tables, brass accents, mirrored walls and coffered ceilings.

 

What about food–“a breakfast-centric morning, power lunch spot mid-day, and a dinner experience at night right in front of the resort’s Conservatory and Botanical Garden as the backdrop” Click here and see reviews from foodies

Coastal Maximalism

Every time when people talk about California coastal interiors, it is always kind of either white, cream or blueish color palettes with signature California lay-back vibes. But not for this one.  It is located right at Corona Del Mar , So Cal and has a perfect polished modern classical style with maximalism in mind. The home is owned by Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson, the co-founders of the California-based cosmetics brand Too Faced. Then, I guess you expect some big wows!

 

Interior designer Mary MacDonald create such wonderful color palettes for each room:

Feminine hot pink pops up from cream, white and grey background with masculine architectural elements.

The entry hall staircase is so French featured  with gilded rails, hand-painted wallpaper, marble stairs.  White, gold and black create such a modern classic tone for t5he whole house

Love this teal color in the library

Grey, white, gold again create classic atmosphere in the master bath and wooden ottoman add a touch of warmth to this all marble-covered space.

Love this pink guest bathroom. Pink, black and strong geometric patterns balance off each other.

Holiday ShowHouse of KHK Designs 2018—2019

It might be a little bit late to post our Holiday ShowHouse 2018–2019.  But come on, it’s still Jan of 2019 and Chinese New year is coming.  So it’s time to be festive and it’s time to celebrate.

The inspiration of our Holiday ShowHouse 2018—2019 is inspired by Pantone Color of the Year 2019–Live Coral—fashionable, bold, youthful, energetic and innovative.  After several years of muted color palettes, millennium pink and grey, we feel it is time to break through to celebrate holidays with something fresh. Therefore, we are able to stay prospective for the future.  Meanwhiles, Holidays are truly about traditions. We mix and match traditions with modern, Live Coral with vintage pink, emerald green with hot pink, camel with purple, Chinoiserie accessories with minimalism furniture, geometric patterns with classic forms and fine crystals with organic ceramic.   The end result of this year’s holiday show house decoration is fun, edgy, playful  yet still elegant and sort of traditional.  Enjoy!
