  Kids room interior design is always fun to tackle, based on the fact that we are creating a place of pure joy for a child to thrive in. With play spaces you have a lot more freedom in color and accessories and you can really let the imagination run wild. But, that’s only half the battle. Underneath the aesthetics, this room also needs to be functional. A well-done playroom should be able to hold their attention and all their toys, while...

 The home office can be one of a few things; a torture chamber that illicits painful guttural feelings when you walk by it on the weekends, or a place where all your odd unwanted furniture has just happened to land and has been left to die. Or  a sad setting for long arduous hours of staring at your computer, where you'll find any excuse to not be. Or, it can be a modern eclectic design sanctuary, a bright collection of...

The one thing every space in your home (both inside and out) has in common is a need for lighting. Whether for function, style, mood or any combination of the three, lighting is one of the most important elements of a room.  Whether it's task lighting or general lighting it's all a necessity, especially going into the fall and winter months.  At JAC Interiors, we love layering different types of lighting to strike just the right balance for practically any...

If this never ending pandemic has you working from home still,  there are some things you can do to make your work from home life feel better and maybe even more productive without breaking the bank. We have gathered up the 5 easiest ways to spruce up your office and improve the look of your home too. One of the first things to consider in your home office is how to position your desk chair. Seems obvious I know, but try...

At JAC Interiors we adore all things green plant wise in our homes and work spaces. Check with any other design pro and they will say the same, that green plants are always a plus for any interior design scheme.  House plants can lend a sculptural quality unlike anything else, they literally provide for amazing visual backdrops to any room in the house.  But beyond just freshening up a room, they help to boost air quality and even reduce stress. As...

Now that July is finally here JAC Interiors thought it would be a good idea to revisit some of our best ideas of how to make the most of summer living. Plus this summer of 2020 is definitely the summer to make the best of staying at home to stay safe so why not spruce up your outdoor space and celebrate July 4th in style. Of course the furniture basics are the sitting and dining areas. We love anything with texture,...

When it comes to interior design color trends, neutral colors are still paving the way for all things chic, but there are a few wild cards in the mix. The main idea is to add texture and pattern for that extra punch, but there are some horses of a different color making their way up to the finish line. You already know that white, gray, and beige fall into neutral territory. However according to a  "My Domaine" survey of interior designers,...

As the anticipation for your little one’s arrival builds, getting the baby’s room ready for his arrival will be added to your list of to-dos. And while choosing safe furniture -- cribs, changing tables and dressers -- is the top priority, who says you can’t have a little fun in the process with design and decor? Apparently as your third trimester comes into full blossom, the nesting instinct to prepare for the babys' arrival is real, not just a modern...

If runway fashion has taught us anything (think fanny packs and moon boots) it's that most fads make a comeback.  And it's not just fashion, but interior design too. In fact they often go hand in hand. One could definitely make a case for same era fashion and interior designs hitting the marketplace at roughly the same time, the second time round -  like mini skirts and 70's inspired wallpaper, some things just go together naturally.  We adore these blasts...

Whether you collect vintage coins, straw hats, heart-shaped rocks, or anything else on earth, you probably want to corral your treasures in an attractive, efficient fashion. The idea here is to create impact without looking like a hoarder, and that requires a certain finesse.  At JAC Interiors, we feel that you can achieve maximum impact by grouping collections all together, in a singular fashion for a singular sensation. In fact, even if your collection is of something old, displaying the...

Considering the fact that we are all currently quarantined inside the perimeters of our property lines for the most part, now might be a good time to take stock of what your front entrance looks like and think about the possibilities of what it could be.  After all it's the first impression passers by see and also effects your curb appeal.  With all  this time spent at home we should be thinking about sprucing up every inch of it so...

As high end residential designers for almost 10 years now, JAC has seen the Great Room trend keep going and going. In fact, open floor plan ideas are here to stay, it's just the way we live now. It's modern and functional and aspirational because it allows for maximum space flow and communication of its occupants. It just makes sense in this busy world and allows us to connect visually in one big space versus just through our devices. For us,...

At JAC, Los Angeles interior designers, we strongly believe in an eclectic mix of furnishings and accessories to help give visual interest and wow factor to our designed spaces.  Adding some patina along with new furnishings in any space is a good idea. And of course we are always on the prowl to find the right piece of furniture, art or accessory for our own spaces and all our projects, but scouring flea markets and antique stores near me can...

Living and vacationing in the Southwest of America can be SO inspiring that many of us yearn to recreate that "vacation" feel in our own homes and want to know how to make our homes feel more luxurious.  Some of us want to make our own space look and feel like these places we've traveled whether it be feeling like you're living at the beach, looking out over a mountain filled view or even a desert landscape. Personally I love...

As designers for high end luxury homes and new builds,  JAC partners with furniture manufacturers to custom make bespoke furnishings for many of our clients. And that sounds like it would have a very high price tag right? Prices on custom furniture is one question we get asked a lot from people we work with and it's a  fair question. After all, if your "designer" is having a custom sofa or side table made specifically for your home, surely that's...

Kitchen backsplashes designs can make or break a kitchen design. The options are limitless and it's SO important to get right so that your kitchen has its own personality but also stands the test of time. Going too trendy and you will wish you hadn't. Going too dull has the opposite effect! Below are some thoughts JAC feels might help in your decision making when considering your kitchen backsplash ideas. We love the look and feel of handmade and organic materials...

Paris is always a good idea right? At JAC we feel the same about all of our favorite design destinations in Europe. Whenever I'm there regardless of the location my eyes are often as wide as manhole covers trying to figure out what makes even the smallest of space in Europe so visually memorable. Eye candy all around! Whatever your favorite style may be from Barcelona to Zurich and everyplace in between, JAC feels there are loads of European decor...

Are you redoing your kitchen, or in the middle of your kitchen remodel already? There are so many moving parts when you stop to think about what makes a kitchen interior design stand apart from the usual, and what works for you in your space. As designers we know how key certain elements are and how you choose a countertop color is one of the most important parts of a kitchen. They are so important that they may even be...

Hooray- maximalist decorating ideas are back! Call it a backlash against minimal Scandinavian design, we don't know but we are celebrating anyway! After the wave of minimalist design,  maybe people realized their homes should feel more personal…and less like the lobby of their dermatologist’s office. If this style feels a little out of your comfort zone, know this: Maximalism isn’t about splashing mismatched patterns, and knick knacks around for the sake of it. Not at all! So when it comes to maximalism vs....

At JAC, interior designer Los Angeles, black is always in style. And for bathroom interior design, swoon! We love juxtaposing the all white bathroom with black and white options for a bit of mood in the bath. Be it a powder room or master bath, black bathroom paint is back with a vengeance. The picture above marries a traditional sink and fixtures with a high impact hand painted wall treatment that knocks our socks off, even the door is hand...

At JAC, we are huge fans of wallpaper and its ability to transform a space more powerfully than paint. It really can set a mood, and add loads of visual interest and even texture. And if you consider the ceiling the fifth wall, then it begins to make sense that you may want to add some kind of fun detail to almost any space but on the ceiling. There are a few caveats though. Wallpaper on the ceiling looks best architecturally...

When thinking about how to have a timeless kitchen design, we think mainly of the beauty of natural materials with a simple cabinet style. These are the combinations that look sophisticated and classic in any home and adding pops of interest in the lighting just brings up the wow factor. And keeping a timeless kitchen color scheme by using a simple paint pallet is a good idea. Shaker cabinets, a timeline decor style, are by far JAC's favorite go to cabinet...

What are decorating trends for 2019? JAC is loving the Boucle design trend happening right now. And although this fabric has been around for ages, it's definitely having a moment in the spotlight right now. Both a yarn and fabric, bouclé is made from three single strands of a knobby, curly yarn with a loopy texture. Typically used in finely tailored women’s suits, the fabric is now produced in unique color-ways and includes metallic and cashmere threads and when...

I don't know about you but as soon as I feel a little crispness in the air I start to think about cozying up to the fire and the holidays to come. And then just as suddenly I begin to think of how I can change up my interiors for said upcoming holidays! At JAC we think a lot can be done without a major remodel, just little tweaks to hit the refresh button in your personal space. Just as...

If you are thinking about buying art, you might be a first time homebuyer staring at lots of blank walls and wondering what to do AND wondering what the whole art buying process is all about, where to look, what to consider, how much to spend and where to find and purchase art. For whatever reason, art buying can indeed be a scary and opaque business, and getting started can be a bewildering proposition. But remember that anybody can appreciate...

Dutch doors seem to be all the rage right now with so many new and remodeled homes going for that modern farmhouse look. All the Dutch doors we've been loving lately are either black or have a mix of bright pops of color, classic design, and a welcoming demeanor that are making us want to saw all of our non-Dutch doors right in half (caution: not the best idea). But seriously, Dutch doors make a welcoming and thoughtful addition to...

At JAC, a los angeles interior designer, we LOVE a super stylish bathroom. I mean, bathrooms in general are primarily about function right? But they can also be uber stylish and fun and mini representations of your personality. Powder rooms in particular are the perfect place to put some wow factor into your home no matter the size. And in bathrooms with tubs and showers there are plenty of opportunities to put your own stamp on it. One of our...

Exterior barn door designs are not just for barns anymore and they aren't just a fall design trend. The farmhouse design trend fits well within the modern eclectic design style which is so strong right now, barn doors design ideas can be a fantastic way to add in a design style that is tried and true and making new headlines. The kicker here is that whatever your design aesthetic, you can add a sliding barn door to the mix...

When it comes to adding some bling to your space, JAC says YES, and share some fun ways to decorate with gold finish! We love mixing our metals for maximum bang. As of late we love adding gold accents and brass into almost any space from the bathroom to the backyard! One of the best ways to learn how to add gold to decor is by paying attention to the other shades in the room. Brass accents work...

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: mirrors are one of our favorite accessories, they're almost as common as wall paint! They come in all shapes and sizes and styles and bring a little bit of glamour to every room of the house. Best of all, they manage to make any space look bigger and brighter. Here are some of our best tips on how to decorate with mirrors, especially incorporating it into our latest living...

How can you make your home look and feel more beachy? Summer makes us all wish we had a little pad by the sea. But even if you live nowhere near the shore, you can still make your home feel like a breezy retreat and with summer interior design trend colors and textures. Like artwork, color is one of those design choices that always feels deeply personal—everyone has a favorite, and everyone has a different idea of how to present it...

We are loving the new Palihotel in Culver City which opened earlier this year to great celebration. As Culver City is in renaissance mode, this cleverly designed and unique boutique luxury hotel in Los Angeles is exactly what was called for to lodge both business travelers and the creative-minded tourist. Whimsically chic and constructed in a renovated 1920’s-era boarding house style, the hotel boasts 49 guest rooms ideal for vacations and staycations alike. The owners of the Paiihotel Culver City...

  At JAC, as interior designers in Los Angles, we realize that rattan is making a huge comeback as an interior design trend of 2019 and although that is not really breaking news, it is a reminder that texture, especially through natural materials like rattan, wicker and wovens is an essential part of making a room feel interesting and layered. I think a lot of people associate wicker with old lady outdoor patio furniture and rattan with boho/California style only....

  80's trends are back! Yep, you read that right. For the interior design trends 2019 and beyond you can expect to see nods to the 80s! This doesn’t necessarily mean that your least-favorite-living-room-era will be coming back to haunt you, it just means you may see some of the following characteristics popping back into the design world this year: Geometric shapes Primary colors and pastels Memphis design inspired; pop art, modernism, art deco elements, asymmetry Terrazzo tile If you’re looking to...

Spring is here and so are the spring 2019 color trends! Days are longer and warmer. Flowers are blooming and new trends are popping up. This Spring decor color palettes are stealing the show, but there are some basics that will help you stay cool, calm and connected to the best of what's happening out there interior design wise. And don't forget, spring is all about letting nature in - not only bringing in colors but also floral patterns, real...

  Book lovers are often faced with the fact that their book buying habit has over-ridden all their obvious storage solutions, like the ever-present bookcase or shelf. I get the the love of books, coffee table books in particular are my favorite with their larger than life size and effervescent colors, often featuring jaw dropping interiors or gardens and the like, all of my favorite things. But one has only just so many coffee tables and bookcases and surfaces with which...

If you are wanting some easy ways to create rooms with personality, and reflect who you are versus the furniture store where you purchased your sofa and chairs, we are here to help. I admit that we all want our homes to feel modern and relate to current trends somewhat, but at the end of the day, your home really only needs to appeal to you. It should feel distinctly yours. Below are a few ideas on how to create...

At this time of year when we're starting to dream about summer vacations and the verdant spring to come, JAC, an interior designer in Los Angeles, couldn't help but think about some of our favorite small spaces and cozy hideaways. And of course some of the best designed getaways are sometimes nestled up and away in trees. Yes, I'm talking about dreamy tree houses that we all secretly want to climb into and whittle away some time staring out at the...

There are few things more picture perfect than a well considered gallery wall. Endlessly flexible and customizable to almost any wall space big or small, it creates a narrative on even the blankest of canvases- a fresh white wall. When it comes to finishing off a room, the gallery wall also takes the pressure off hunting down a singular does-it-all piece of art. No wonder it’s JAC's go-to solution. Here are some tips on how to hang a gallery wall from...

Furnishing your home as a first time home buyer can be overwhelming. All of a...

While we may not be walking around in bell-bottoms and platform shoes, when it comes to interiors The Seventies are back and better than ever. The 70's was a time for rock 'n' roll, bold color shaggy textures, and letting your hair down. Rules were there to be broken; clashing wallpapers dominated, and seventies interior design is sneaking right back in where it came from, albeit in a more refined and toned-down way. As a child of the 70's, I have a...

If you are like us and looking for someplace original  and one of the best new hotels to spend some quality down time, look no further than The Hotel Joaquin in southern California's Laguna Beach. As city dwellers we love to get out of town and soak up some of the fantastic design and natural majesty this state has to offer, particularly when you can be someplace where the ocean meets the cliffs.  And of course living the Laguna Beach...

At JAC we love decorating for the holidays, and christmas mantel decor in particular. As designers we strive to highlight the focal points in our homes and projects we design, and the center of almost any room is a fireplace with it's natural warmth and canvas-like space for all kinds of design opportunities.  And while using modern fireplace decorations in any season is fun, Christmas time just turns up the volume for some eye catching ways to show off your...

Oh Christmas Tree -the very essence of simple holiday decor. So many options, so little time! Start early I say, and by the time the season is upon you, all the tree trimmings will be ready to place for your winter home decor. JAC likes to think of Christmas tree decoration as falling into 3 different categories, 'nostalgia' being the first category, often happening by default but usually to very good effect. The key here is to embrace the fact...

If you’ve been trying to understand how to choose the right color palette for your interiors and you understand the importance of color in interior design and think you’re breaking all the color rules, here is our interior design color scheme guide of 5 ways to correct your interior design color myths, once and for all. Whether they are true or not, every interior can be an exception to the design rules, right? Myth: Neutral color palettes are for the unadventurous....

  There are many benefits to adding greenery to your home. Greenery is the best way to add natural color to a space. At JAC, we like to add as many plants and succulents as we can to our interiors as they add so much depth and character and texture. But, although we love the look of live greens, some spaces we design just don’t work well for them.  Whether the space or environment is too dark with no natural light or just...

  Trying to choose a paint color can be a daunting prospect and want to help you avoid common wall painting mistakes. At JAC we know that good design can depend on so many factors, and paint color is a BIG one! Here are some wall painting tips.  We suggest you start by finding a point of inspiration (a favorite fabric, the colors of your kitchen countertops, a piece of wall art, even a page torn out of a magazine). By...

Trying to find the perfect modern area rug is a daunting task. With designs, patterns and shapes, think about timelessness and longevity rather than trends you might get bored with after a few months. Texture is also very important--you want something that adds another dimension and can elevate a room, and a textural rug can do just that!  Don't worry, we can help you to understand how to buy an area rug by giving you area rug inspirations! If you want area rug...

Which color palettes will you feel most comfortable with in your home? If you’ve ever struggled to narrow down your interior design style, JAC is here to help you zero in on your real design style types and get you on track!  Take a look...

At this time of year we love the 'no white after labor day rule', we don't really know the origin of no-white after labor day but that doesn't stop us from ignoring it!  Particularly this year when decorating with black is as hot as a sidewalk in the noon day sun. Suddenly everywhere we look, black is making a bigger debut than the Kardashian exploits!  It's no doubt that black invigorates a room or space with its grand aptitude for...

Think about the idea of giving a gift without the wrapping. Or donning a little black dress without the perfect wow necklace, or even eating a cake without icing, and you can begin to see the importance of accessorizing! It is the same about your home, accessorizing makes your space into a stylish and personalized home.  Accessories are the finishing touches of color, texture and shape that impact your decor.  The role they play is important. They reflect your style philosophy and...

 JAC knows you have heard of man caves, so what is a she shed you ask.  Well women can now have their own special place to escape with she sheds! Gone are the days of the man shed full of gardening equipment and tools as the she sheds are now ruling supreme. Outdoor she shed design ideas are aplenty.  They can be used as office spaces, art studios, guest rooms, party rooms, craft studios, exercise rooms, or simply a place to read,...

At JAC interiors we believe art makes a house a home. But choosing art pieces for your space can be a daunting task for fear of buyers remorse. We offer some tips for choosing art. Whether you are fixated on single statement pieces or long for a full gallery wall, staying true to your own tastes can be difficult with so many artistic outlets around. If you want to know how to buy art from a gallery, holding out for...

For most of us, getting our home office up-to-snuff in terms of a good design is something that never happens since we are so focused on doing actual work there!  But we should dream and maybe even lay down some plans for a home office makeover. Your home office can be a sanctuary, a retreat, and a place guaranteed to produce productivity, if done correctly. So many factors play into home office interior design ideas, from the size and storage capacity...

We are so excited to share the photos from our recent JAC project in Montana. This design-build house is tucked right into the Rocky Mountain range at the base of Pioneer Mountain, the site of the uber exclusive, members only Yellowstone Club. JAC was lucky enough to work with the architect and builder to develop, design, build and furnish this family owned ski chateau. The home has 5 bedrooms with two master bedrooms both complete with fireplaces and outdoor space...

Finding your personal color inspiration is key to so many design decisions you will make in your life! From using the colors in your wardrobe to listening to your own instincts over other peoples’ contemporary paint color trends, it will give you the confidence to make a big color change and help you pick your interior paint colors. I think the best advice JAC can give to anyone trying to work out their own color identity or kitchen color schemes...

When it comes to JAC's favorite chic laundry room decor ideas, there are four design basics that all of the rooms in this roundup have in common. All of these efficient laundry room designs utilize simple home decor and have the essential elements in close proximity, not more than a step or two away from one another. In order to easily transfer wet clothes from washer to dryer, stack appliances or put them side by side, directly in front of utility hookups....

JAC Interiors had the great pleasure of attending the 55th annual Gold Nugget Awards 2018 in San Francisco last week. These awards are a nation wide event recognizing those who improve our communities through exceptional concepts in design, planning and development. JAC was nominated for our most recent house in the desert at the Madison Club for best custom home 2018 in the 4-8k square foot category, along with the rest of our team, Frank Stoltz of Southcoast architecture and...

Summer starts with Memorial Day, ends with Labor Day, and features the firework-bursting fourth of July as its centerpiece. It’s the season to let your patriotic flag fly, its warm weather and barbecues ushering in good old-fashioned American celebrating. Because of its holiday-studded mood, summer and specifically 4th of July decor has also become synonymous with the red, white, and blue palette. From the flag-printed paper plates found at party supply stores to firecracker popsicles, these three colors bring pride, nostalgia,...

There's a real manhattan style decor movement going on right now that mirrors some of the other trends in food and travel and fashion. It combines vintage and classic pieces that have patina with modern lighting and found objects to remind us of our gentler, slower past. This look is super curated, full of texture and warmth and seems to be straight out of New York City, a very New York inspired interior design.  There's a  worn grit to it...

You may not have a summer house or patio furniture inspiration — yet — but that doesn't mean you can't dream about summer decorating ideas for a future one. Beachside, lakeside, or countryside, escape hatch dreaming and/or designing is a summertime must even if it is only in the smallest corner of your home. Do what you can to celebrate summer decor 2018 and create a little hot weather dreamy-ness in your life.The goal? Bring outdoor living in. Super soft...

For the most part in todays design world, we think of ceilings as just a part of the normal architecture of a space, nothing too fancy or, pardon the pun, "over the top". But, in the start of construction history, ceiling ideas were usually designed or decorated with fresco painting or mosaic tiles, trying to replicate certain events in the past or some sort of symbolism. Now of course ceiling decorating ideas are much less ornate in general but there...

One element of interior design that can be rather elusive is flooring. One reason for this is that it’s way easier to pay attention to what’s around us rather than what’s beneath us. Plus, flooring is a costly investment that requires a real level of commitment, more than most other aspects of our interiors. Yet the flooring ideas and inspiration can really tie a room together. It is one of the most lasting and timeless elements of a given space that...

A living room needs to be a place where families can kick their feet up. Where they can convene, entertain, and enjoy each other. But for those people who pride themselves as experts at minimalist decor, it also needs to be able to tie a home together.  Keeping your interiors clean and simple doesn't have to mean boring or even modern minimalist design--interiors can showcase space rather than things. By focusing on color, space, and shape, contemporary interiors are sleek...

California coastal design style is made up of many design looks, from iconic Mid Century Design in places like Palm Springs, to beach front living in Malibu, to the timeless Spanish Mediterranean architecture found throughout the Golden State. But a few things we know for sure: it's definitely coastal, casual and incorporates outdoor living. At JAC Interiors we like to think of Cali home style as bringing in colors and textures of the mountains, ocean and fauna in creative ways. ...

  We all love large, spacious rooms with plenty of space, light and air around us, but our home reality is often very different. If you are not lucky enough to live in an expansive old building or a newish modern home, you often have to settle for low ceilings that make each room look narrower and smaller particularly if your dwelling is in a densely populated city. But, JAC  Interiors believes that by using these low ceiling design tricks and...

Clearly the best part of Spring is the ability to start to enjoy the great outdoors, even if you are in a part of the world where the weather isn't exactly warm and summery yet. The perfect place to start your summer excursion is right there at the edge of your doorway, any outdoor space will do, whether it's a tiny balcony or a massive roof top terrace or even a proper yard, you can tart it up for the...

Each season brings the desire to change up your interiors aesthetic but no season makes you wanna refresh your home for spring quite like this season does. Something about the new buds and summer colors just about to break through that makes us all wanna push the refresh button on our homes. And at JAC Interiors we have very solid ideas on some of our favorite spring interior design trends for 2018. Bringing the outside in with indoor plants for...

Desert inspired interior design can come in many forms, but when JAC does desert design it has a decidedly luxe look and feel. Living or vacationing in the desert really does mean loving the aesthetic of indoor and outdoor living, in all its forms: colors, textures, patterns, light and of course the weather and plant life. Our desert chic decors really blends the outside with the inside in the same way that desert living weather affords that same experience. But...

Go big or go home, so the saying goes, and that’s certainly the maxim that applies to maximalist design.  So, if your'e ready to infuse a whole lot of personality into your personal space, just ignore functionality and rationality. Forget about the whole maximalism vs. minimalism movement! In maximalist home decor, less is definitely NOT more! Leave white space at the door, and say hello to every single design trend you like, then pile them all together, lol. Actually it's...

The Mid-Century modern movement began as an American interpretation of a combination of the International and Bauhaus styles during the middle 20th century. Classic Mid-Century design meets linear concepts with organic materials to marry form and function. Southern California is a Mecca for this style, most prominently in the desert town of Palm Springs. This era was a particularly special time in American culture as society was looking toward the future in the height of the space age. A classic element in...

In interior design, mixing patterns is one of the more advanced things that you can learn to do, and since fabrics and patterns are actually meant to be layered and combined, it's usually all good. But doing it the wrong way can look like a hot mess. At JAC Interiors, doing it well can be the difference between designing a dream room, or going back to the drawing board, so we like to get it right! The first thing you'll...

 At JAC Interiors we know that the right lighting fixture type is everything! Additions of accent lights to interior spaces using a low power lighting source is an effective means of creating visual interest. As you probably know, LED lights have a longer lifespan, as compared to traditional lighting methods. When you couple this with the fact that they are also perfect for installing in hard-to-reach places, it makes them ideal for placement in areas to highlight artistic features or...

There are people who consider the bedroom as the most sacred area in a home, because it’s a place of retreat where people rest and recharge. It plays an important role in replenishing your energy every day, which is why the environment should be comfortable and conducive for sleep. From a design perspective,  JAC interiors knows there are many elements that can make a bedroom more sleep-friendly, such as adding a touch of nature. JAC Interiors recently discussed why plants are...

The JAC Interiors team recently visited the Las Vegas Market where we were inspired by new trends & colors.  We are especially delighted by the Pantone color of the year for 2018: ultraviolet!  We loved the previous pantone color of the year but this year is all about warmth in our color pallet.  JAC has a new color crush and we are excited to use it in our upcoming designs and beyond.  This bold color can be used in it's...

Romantic valentine's day themed bedrooms shouldn't be reserved for one day a year!  We want to share some JAC approved modern valentine's day decor and design inspiration for a year-round sultry vibe. All the deep red tones and cozy textures in this bedroom are to die for whether you have a significant other or not. We also can't resist the anti-valentine sentiment for those of us who don't have that special someone on this day for lovers.  This neon sign adds...

Last year the Washington Post ran an article about millennial home decor and indoor plant ideas with the headline, “Millennials are filling their homes – and the void in their hearts – with houseplants.” It was an apt (if not slightly depressing) assessment of a generation of people who consider themselves highly independent (even if they’re too often calling mom and dad for a handout). Like man’s other best friend, the dog, houseplants are living creatures and as with the knowing...

Monochromatic interior design is having a moment and this strikingly simplistic approach to color is addictive for so many reasons. The drama created with a super simple color palette can be magical and dynamic and calming all at once.  If you think about it, monochrome tones are restful, timeless and super practical.  By restricting your color palette, you can freely experiment with mixing pieces from different eras, add patterns and layer-in texture.  As in the picture above, any number of...

JAC loves working with people so their home can be ready to be sold, and we have also worked with plenty of realtors to prepare a house to be market ready. While there are so many important aspects to getting your home up to snuff to sell, we have realized through the years that one of the most important basics to sell your house fast is with the right realtor. A top realtor will know the best way to price...

Picture this, you wake up with a chill on your nose and a mountain of down duvet on your chest, the smell of coffee in the air. Your current room is crisp but warm and glowy, with the slightest hint of the morning sun cresting over the evergreens, through the fat flakes that fall in front of your bedroom's picture window.

Open kitchen shelving has been trendy for a while now and has loads going for it. Curating your shelves is a very modern kitchen decor trend that can certainly make your kitchen seem bigger by losing the full cabinets and just floating some of your shelves. You can also add a layer of personality to your shelves, displaying your particular brand of pretty plate ware or mugs-- but be careful to NOT over do it.  You don't want mis-matched mugs...

The home office can be one of two things; a torture chamber that illicits painful guttural feelings when you walk by it on the weekends. A place where all your odd unwanted furniture has just happened to land and has been left to die.

Color blocking is a bit urban mid century, a touch of 80's loft, a splash of Euro art deco, but all totally bodatious. With it's deep, clean lined saturation of color, stark contrasting accents and seriously modern impact, this decor style may not be everyone's taste but it still makes for something really great to gawk at. Creating a color statement by opting for color blocking will definitely take some guts and commitment, but if you're down, this bold design is...

Art is a direct reflection of your personality, which is a wonderful way to express yourself in your home but is also what makes choosing art for a client so difficult.
