#JKID Concept | Boutique Pasadena Hotel

Thursday, November 17, 2011


The bf has been working crazy overtime lately which means there's no one to take my ensemble shots boooooooo :( But on the flip side, that gives me plenty of time to catch y'all up to speed with what I've been up to lately. 


The holidays are always my busiest time of year since everyone and their mamas wants spaces designed before guests start rolling in! Case in point, I've been working on this hospitality renovation that's near completion and I couldn't be more ecstatic! Located in downtown Pasadena, this hotel institution has been around for quite some time now and needed a heavy update of JKID drama and slight dosage of modern global glamour. Here's what's on the board:


A sexy lounge/lobby filled with ambient lighting... 
Natural elements to bring the outdoors in.. 
Seated reception to encourage a casual welcome... 


...graphics galore as inspired by the work of Kelly Wearstler... 

...backlit everything and mirrored panels to accentuate the glow...

...velvet and onyx for a high contrast pairing...


...even flooring should make a statement...


Alfresco dining indoors and how to make it work...
Gorgeous jewel tones on fabulous furniture...


...stylized built-ins for a European aesthetic...


...and of course no JKID interior is complete without a little (or lots of) antique mirror...

I don't often talk about my work, but things are about to change around here. I'm thinking new layout, new series, and possibly maybe even a new blog name?? It's hard enough to pronounce Haute Khuuture let alone understand what it even means to readers. {It's Haute: as in "oat", Khuu: "coo" (my last name for those who don't know) - ture: reads like it looks} Definition: My personal spin on statement-making style. Design, fashion, food, and fun!...Some things will never change. 

Thank you all sooooooo much for reading!
Tune in next week to see how you can transform your home from plain to posh!

  10. LV Lockit handbag is made from different styles of leather. You have to be able to determine if the leather is of good quality or not. Real 2011 monogram canvas handbags have their brand name and logo on the satin lining. The choice on the type of LV brooklyn pmhandbag to buy really depends on your style and needs, on where and when to use the Wallet vuittonhandbag. Of course, your budget is the first consideration upon choosing. If you have enough budgets and can afford to buy original Wallet vuittonhandbag then choose the one that really fits your needs and style.
