How to stay classic without being dated

LESSONS FROM KYLIE JENNER'S KITCHEN

Whatever you think of Kylie Jenner and her famous family, it's hard to deny that she has some pretty great taste in houses. Her last one was a little goth for me, but her latest Hidden Hills home is a great example of classic with a modern twist.

What can we learn?

1. KEEP IT 90% CLASSIC

Really. Every design choice can't be shouting at you at once. Remember, you have to live in this house! And by the way, this also applies to clothing. The little black dress is a classic for a reason. It showcases what really counts : YOU. In this case, your kitchen is showcasing : YOUR LIFE. Your family. Your friends. Your food. It is the backdrop, not the main event. 

Jenner's classic - very traditional colors and materials.

2. ADD SOME BOLD MOVES

You need to pick a few things to focus on, a few things that show your personality and impress your guests and make life a bit more fun. 

Jenner's bold moves - slabs of marble for the backsplash and to-the-floor counter; black lighting; and a strikingly variegated floor. 

3. MAKE IT USER FRIENDLY

Don't forget people will be in this space. A great user experience is the number one key to a successful design. 

Jenner's user friendly choices : extra plugs on the walls, a sink filler faucet, two island sinks, and convenient beverage center. And did I mention her 8 burner double oven range?

 I would love to know who the designer of this house is. If you know please share it in the comments! And remember:

It’s always the people that know the least about you that want to judge you the most.
