Home Tour: Kelis’ Eclectic 1920’s Glendale Home

Kelis, who found fame with the hit song “Milkshake” but is now a successful chef with a book and a sauce brand, purchased a 1920’s Spanish-style home in Glendale a few years ago and renovated it. She was careful to preserve the historical details that made her fall in love with the property in the first place while infusing it with some of her own flair and style. The result is a design-savvy, truly unique home.

She has now put the home on the market for $1.885 million. The residence is 3,850 square feet and features a large outdoor space with a pool, perfect for entertaining or relaxation. The entire home feels spacious inside, too, with sprawling rooms and plenty of natural light. It’s definitely a real estate gem.

How to Shake Up Your Halloween Decor with Cheerful Colors

Want to give your Halloween decor or party a little twist? How about a cheerful, colorful Halloween? It might seem counterintuitive given what the holiday is known for but that’s what makes the concept so interesting. Embracing a color palette and theme that contrasts with the traditional Halloween vibe are what makes it such a bold, compelling choice.

You can still keep the spooky elements that are associated with Halloween (skulls, jack-o-lanterns, spiders, ghosts, witches, etc). Then, pair them with a colorful theme and some contrasting elements like flowers. It’s a fun way to put a spin on Halloween that no one will expect, especially if you’re throwing a party.

Here are 10 cheerful and colorful Halloween decor ideas to inspire you.
