Happy Friday!

So excited to share with you today the JWS Interiors #JWSHOLIDAY Instagram Challenge Winner! 

Congrats to Ashley Cox  @ashleycox24 for her adorable styled bar cart! The deer head and gold print in the background sealed the deal!


Fall Fashion to Home-- Get the Look: Neutral Territory

Today's post I wanted to share this adorable outfit (doesn't she look great?!) and inspiration for the room I found on Design Sponge and loved.  .. I certainly couldn't get away with socks like that, but she certainly can! 

It's sweater weather here on the east cost and while we bundle up ourselves, we are also changing our home decor. For me, I get out warm blankets--faux fur and chunky knits and add them to our family room basket for anyone to grab and curl up on the sofa. 

This space is the epitome of comfort and chic. I love the marble table, but the textures in the rug, throws, pillows, and even the chair are what makes it. 

Enjoy your day  and stay warm!

Thigh high socks make any outfit like 10 times cuter



Magazine Photo Shoot This Week/IG Contest Deadline


This is such a crazy time of year in the design business, with clients needing their homes finished for the holidays and then all that goes with holiday parties, shopping, etc--you know the drill.

But, I'm excited that this week I'll be doing a magazine shoot ! I'm super excited about the opportunity and have been told to wear a glam outfit. So, of course, now I'm stressed trying to find what that outfit may be! 

Here's a quick photo I wanted to share of what I'm thinking I'll wear...  but definitely need another option...

Don't forget the JWS Interiors Holiday Instagram Challenge #jwsholiday ends Friday! 



Hello!  I was busy over the weekend preparing for a wine and cheese party I hosted for friends.

I wanted to share some of the decor photos with you today! I set up my kitchen and my dining room as two separate food & drink areas. These photos are pre-party and a few just minutes before guests arrived, so you note I didn't have drinks actually poured in my dining room display. 

I set up the bar area with a chalkboard to add a little fun to my kitchen, but my favorite part was putting down chalkboard paper on my island and then writing the names of the cheese on the paper!

A Cozy Bedroom

It's getting cold here in DC.. in the 30s to be exact. We are all bundled up in our sweaters, scarves, and cute pom-pom hats. 

I came across this gorgeous and cozy bedroom and wanted to share. I love all the trestle work in the ceiling--it makes you just want to read and drink hot tea all day.. Or sleep!

Have a good weekend! I have some fun posts and news coming up next week!

A Great Resource for All Things Vintage --Fig House Vintage

Do you love Etsy? I do and I love finding unique items for my own home and for clients. 
Once again, I connected with an awesome shop via Instagram.

Fig House Vintage  is a great resource for vintage items--lighting, accessories, furniture and more!

Today I wanted to show off my new brass pineapple from Stephanie at Fig House! I'm in love with it and it makes such a nice statement on a table! 

Check out a couple photos of how nice it can look in your home. Thanks to Betsy, my assistant, for taking time to help style it for today's post!

And, if you're not in the market for this accessory, perhaps you 're looking for something else, so be sure to check out Fig House Vintage!


Vignettes/Coffee Table Styling I'm Loving

You already know if you're on Instagram that I'm addicted. I love to post beautiful photos of vignettes I've styled in my own home or that other talented designers have done. 

So, for those who aren't on Instagram, today I wanted to share some vignettes that I found by other designers and loved! 

Tomorrow I'll have photos of the Style Me Bar launch party in DC last night! So much fun!

A Great Resource for Art: These Fine Walls

One of the more challenging aspects of being a designer is selecting art, but to be even more frank, it is actually finding the best resources to find the art...

But, thanks to Instagram, I connected with Lisa Eryn Silverman, owner of  These Fine Walls, a brand-new, super cool, curated online gallery. Her gallery showcases a variety of artists' contemporary work, including both undiscovered as well as established photographers.  

What's amazing is that all works offered are limited edition, museum quality---and accessible to everyone! 

Don't miss out on the Friends & Family sale going on now!

Entries I'm Loving & How to Add Glam To Your Space

The more I look around me and I'm hired to design a client's space, the more I want to design more glamorous spaces... You've seen some rooms I've done in which I was able to create glam rooms. 

Of course my glam penthouse whole house project has yet to be seen and it's killing me because there isn't an inch that isn't fashionable. Luckily, my fantastic client Lee, invites me over all the time so I can enjoy her newly designed digs since the design I wouldn't work for my own home since I have young kids.... 

These glam entries are killing me.. I'm just in love.. they are sexy and I can easily imagine coming home to both of them...everyday! 

But even though we can't all live in a space like these, there are little ways that can add a touch of glam without spending big bucks.  

Here is my quick short list on glam items you can add to your home:

-Faux Fur pillow(s) or blanket
-A touch of gold here and there
-White shag rug
-Acrylic chair(s)
-Something black like a lamp shade or an accent wall

Finally---A State of Mind---Create Your Own Sense of Glam~
