Designing around a specific architectural style can be a challenge. You don't want to clash or compete with the overall theme. An Asian, Zen-like atmosphere calls for simple, uncomplicated furnishings, so Kenneth adopted clean lines and organic textures and tied them all together with a Japanese style. The handpainted mural, lush silks, blue lounge chairs, organic sea-grass rug and the soft, feminine color palette all come together to achieve a sense of comfort and balance.
