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...

 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...

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...
