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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

Now, it could be the fact that JAC just welcomed a baby girl so we are subconsciously in tune with our pink side, or it could also just be that this color gives us a really fuzzy case of the feels, but we are crushing on blush. Call it dusty rose, mauvey pink, baby blush or soft terra-cotta, this warm hue is a feminine kind of neutral that we can't get enough of lately. It's really a great way to bring...

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. 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 your thoughts, passions...

Terrazzo, the forgotten floor material is...

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...

If you've been scanning Pinterest, Houzz, or any other Social Media design platforms lately you may have noticed an overwhelming industrial influence popping up out there. JAC loves an Industrial style space for it's precise blend of salvaged materials with vintage and antique furnishings. Modern and clean but still eclectic, fantastically collected and curated. The main players of this trend seem to be black steel framed windows, clean subway tile, concrete floors and counter tops, rustic raw wood finishes, exposed brick,...

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...

The easiest, quickest and least expensive way to transform your space is to restyle your bookcase.

We love trinkets, candles, books, lamps, woven bowls and weird flea market statues just as much as the next girl, but...
