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.

 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.

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...
