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...

 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.

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...

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.

As you spend more time together throughout the design process you build a better understanding of someone's personality...
