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.

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.

 

IMG_0250.jpg
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-8

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
