House Tour—Kim & Kayne West’s Calming Minimalism Mansion at the Suburban of Los Angeles

Finally, the world famous couple have opened doors to Architect Digest.  Being honest with you, after I read the article, I looked  at my desk and got rid of everything in front of me in 5 minutes.  I guess that is the  power of  minimalism.  Although I still couldn’t figure out  how they make the space so pristine with their 4 kids,  I love the whole white-on-white   museum-like interiors.   I feel how they did their current home is like they did it after a long long sought-after-thinking.  Yes, let me put this way, the home looks very spiritual just like Kayne said it is a futuristic Belgian monastery  thanks to design help from the famed Belgium designer Axel Vervoordt and Kayne’s own minimalism taste.   Each  room is just like a space with art installation.  So, let’s take a look together.

 

Neutral Color Palette

The neutral color palette is the most effective way to create a soothing, relaxed home and serve as a backdrop for museum-level artwork. However, in order to make people look great under neutral shades, good lighting plays a critical factor.

The Pool Area

AD0320_KKW_3

You may notice there is no Jacuzzi in this pool. But don’t worry because Kayne said they wanted the whole pool as Jacuzzi. And the  design idea is to let the kids sit on the stairs and just enjoy warm water with cheers.  How do you like the idea?

The Hallway

When Axel started to work on this project, he said they did a lot of editing and they wanted to make each space purer and purer.  I totally can relate to that. As you know we live in such a chaos environment, every time when we come back home, we want to come back to calmness.  I don’t know about you, I always try to make everything organized before I leave the house.  So when I come back home, I feel good.

In case you are inspired and interested in refreshing your home in such a similar way, we handpicked some product for you.

The living Room

So you can tell the couple really keeps furniture and decor minimum.  But with the fireplace, comfy chairs  and white textures rug, the space is quite warm, inviting and intimate.

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.

  1. Rule #1, always keep an overall color palette  neutral if you are going to take a mix& match approach.

5 ways for a Successful Room Makeover

 

I like to style the modern house since they often have a clean-line structure and will be easier to add some unique  objects and colors to make the spaces interesting rather dull and boring.  For the recent project we just did,  we approached Client’s  interiors in 5 ways to cope with her busy career and her love of modern interiors.

  1. Declutter those she really doesn’t need and those she will not be inspired or feel pleasant with.
  2. Add some quality pieces such as detail-oriented decorative pillows, one-of-the-kind chandeliers based on the pieces the client already has and no need to get rid of at the current moment. For this project, the pieces that the client would like to keep and also inspire me for designing the rest of the decor are this brown leather swivel chair and Moroccan rug from West Elm.
  3. Re-arrange the current floor plan to make it more open and functional.
  4. Casually add some artwork that sing with the interiors.
  5. Dare to choose bold patterns. For this project, we use houndstooth and stripe pattens to contrast with Moroccan rug pattern and add visual interest to the space.

Please check out before-and-after photos for part of the project.

A San Gabriel Valley Modern Home Makeover—Part 3

I have designed some modern interiors for my recent projects. People love SoCal’s  airy vibes  filled with natural lights. Meanwhile, they also would like to incorporate textures, geometric artworks, patterns, pops of color and earthy tones to create an inviting and warm atmosphere. For this San Gabriel modern home project we did, we add a smoke glass chandelier with a brass stem,  several sky blue-pink -background geometric artworks, a grey velvet pouf,  an  oversized blush tufted square ottoman to bring a healthy dose of warmth , interest and depth to the space while we e keep the original motif-patterned Moroccan rug and brown leather swivel chair. Also,   two elegant silver-leafed side tables we placed by the mid-century low-back sectional elevate the space with sophistication and luxury.  So the end result is airy, light yet warm, modern, clean yet glamorous.

From Maria Sharapova’s L.A. Home to See 7 Features of New Modern Design

Maria Sharapova was very engaged with her new LA home in the process of design, construction and furnishing. She knew exactly what she was looking for since she travels a lot and home is where she ultimately relaxes and chills out. Without doubt,  she is a minimalism and wouldn’t want anything she doesn’t feel need. So you properly can imagine how neat her living space is. But one thing I admire  her taste is that although there is a very modern and  clean color scheme, her LA home is quite warm and inviting thanks to her savy art collections of many years and textures she decided to use. So here are 7 take-aways we learned from her  LA home to create warm and inviting modern design.

  1. Have a vignette for the vintage pieces.

    The vintage wood bench truly relaxes the space covered with large concrete pieces.

    2.  Add artwork and floral arrangement.

    3. Incorporate wood furniture to invite warmth.

    AD070119_SHARAPOVA_12.jpg

    4. Master indoor-and-outdoor living style to make the space alive and livable.AD070119_SHARAPOVA_02.jpg

5. Have drapes even through it is a sheer panel to add softness to the space.AD070119_SHARAPOVA_03.jpg

6. Have a functional fireplace.

7. Have a lot of textures and plush pillows.
