Khloe’s style is young, fresh, and glamorous, but she also appreciates traditional styles and influences. The overall style of the home, is sophisticated, upscale and livable all at the same time. With luxurious fabrics, mirrored surfaces and a dramatic chandelier.
Three ways to add style, substance and personality to your room.
Keep things alive and seasonal with fresh flowers. Vintage stores, flea markets, and resale shops are great places to find interesting and unique vases and vessels. Grab a bundle of flowers when you stop at the farmers market or at the grocery store.
Photos and personal mementos (such as bobble heads on Khloe’s desk) add a personal touch to the space. No room is complete without photos of family, friends, and loved ones! Buy frames that catch your eye and mix and match. Keep an eye out for sales and promotions at frame shops by subscribing to enewsletters.
Finally, books! Art books are a great gift to give and receive. There are usually several great coffee table books to choose from at any good bookstore. You can always find a fun art book about a topic that you find interesting from design to fashion to music.
Window treatments. For the windows, we chose these fabulous charcoal / purple sheers that filter light and really up the “glam factor” of this room. They really pull the room together and make it feel complete. I think that too many people neglect window treatments. Curtains and other window options can get very expensive, but if you do your research, you can make smart, stylish decisions that don’t break the bank. Think about function — do you need to block out light completely? Do you need privacy from your window coverings or are they just for effect? Online is a great place to monitor for sales and promotions for both window coverings and hardware.
Painting is something that pretty much everyone can afford to do, and most of us can handle doing ourselves! For Khloe’s office, a deep shade of gray/lavender (Benjamin Moore – Stone) was used on the walls, and the ceiling was painted with a lighter shade of lavender (Benjamin Moore – Angelika). The dark trim is a custom colour that was mixed by the painter on site. Use a paint deck and other colour samples to help put together your palette. Make sure to look at the samples at different times of day and night before selecting a colour as lighting changes colour dramatically.
Shelves and chandelier. To add glitz, dimension, and visual interest to the shelves in Khloe’s office, we added antique mirror to the back of the shelves. Again, this is something that can be done on any budget with a quick trip to your local glass shop. Glamour was added with the chandelier. The designer customised the piece with cut bohemian black crystals that I purchased separately and added for maximum effect.
