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...

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...

Open kitchen shelving has been trendy for a while now and has loads going for it.

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...

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. When we take on a client, initially you get a sense of what that person's taste level is, their broad interests and what they are relatively attracted to or repulsed by. As you spend more time together throughout the design process you build a better understanding of someone's personality...
