How to style your dining table for Easter

April 1, 2017

How to style your dining table for EasterI’ve never really decorated a table for Easter before but then I saw these eggs in a vase on Pinterest and it inspired me to make my own ‘pastel’ version with left-over paint I had and use my beautiful tableware designed by Sophie Conran for Portmeirion.

It was really easy to do and turned out to be very pretty too so I’m really pleased with the whole look of our Easter table. I also put together a super easy family menu which you will have no problem replicating. READ MORE...

Two of the most iconic chairs in one photo

March 7, 2017

Two of the most iconic chairs in one photoToday’s portrait session was in the new home of an Interior Designer.

The house is not finished yet so we had to move a few boxes around to carve ourselves a little corner for the photoshoot but it was good fun. I will share some pictures with you once it’s finished. Until then, you can view some on Instagram stories if you’re quick enough ;-)

I loved the wooden ceiling, the concrete floor and this perfect little corner filled with natural light had two of my favourite chairs: the Panton chair by Vitra and the Eero Saarinen Tulip chair by Knoll.

If you haven’t seen them yet, I have created a Facebook page for my Portrait Photography (click here to follow it) and a new Instagram account: Karine Kong Photography.

If anyone is interested in doing a portrait session with me, I will be in London the first week of April so leave a comment or send me a message xoxo.



Free Valentine’s Day printables to download

February 13, 2017

Free Valentine's Day printables to downloadSteve and I have been together for two decades so dinner at the restaurant with half of the country is really not my idea of a romantic meal. I much prefer when we surprise each other with little attentions any other day of the year to show that we love and care about each other.

Last year, I put a mixtape together. This year, I have re-styled our dining room with a large blank canvas where I added the word LOVE and created some free printables which you can download and use as Valentine’s card. If you place them on each plate like I did, you will need to select to print as A5. READ MORE...

In As You Like Magazine

January 28, 2017

Being featured in As You Like magazineI hope you’re having a nice weekend so far.

Mine started nicely with a power walk listening to Louise Hay (has any of you started listening to her!? If you have, please let me know what you think) and then I took Mila to the gym so she could practice for her competition in a couple of weeks.

When we came back home, there was a copy of As You Like magazine with 6 pages dedicated to our home in London and a profile about me. I’m so excited! I know I had press coverage in the past but that kind of things never gets old, believe me!

As You Like magazine is a women’s magazine dedicated to the new e-generation and regularly draws profiles of Digital Influencers, Bloggers, Vloggers etc….I mean, how far have we all come as a profession to have a magazine just dedicated to all the inspiring people we find online, it’s incredible and it gives me so much hope for the next generation of women, our girls, to create something new.

Anyway, this gives me the opportunity to practice the art of flatlay which I find tricky :-)
