Black & White Delight/Shout Outs

So excited to share with you today this gorgeous photo of a classic black and white motif. I adore how the drapes in the arched doorway make the entire space feel so glam and dramatic.
The sphere lighting and accessories add to the drama yet also provide some cohesion.

What do you think?


There's a lot going on at JWS Interiors.. exciting things to share in May!


Friday I present a modern, graphic family room to a NYC family whom is relocating to the DC area. Again, I am thrilled to be working with you, KP.

You'll see later today or tomorrow a sneak peek on my Facebook page  at the almost complete dining room of my Glam Condo Project so be sure to check it out! Some of our pieces are taking 12 weeks to arrive, hence the long time to finish. I'm super excited to be working with this client as she's basically given me free reign over the design of every space! Thanks LG!

In addition, a quick shout out to client DB--good things come to those who wait and I'm excited as we move forward with what I dub our project as "DC Hamptons" project! 

BV--Loving working on the guest house and can't wait to show you!

Last but not least GL, I love working together ... period!

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a good week!
I thought for today's post I'd feature TRAVEL ESSENTIALS since I'm heading to Miami in a few weeks. 

I snapped this photo of the first things I'd pack for the beach--My new Michael Kors black bikini, Neutrogena sunscreen (always a must), my white hat (Target--$6.99) , a few magazines and  my pink and white wrap that can also be used as a scarf, among other things!

For makeup, I love L'Oreal's pencils and glosses and Benefit's Benetint for the perfect shade of pink on your cheeks. You can also use it on your lips and then put gloss over. 

What are your travel essentials? (Oops.. just realized I left out my sunglasses!)

Project Design Board for NYC Apartment

Hi Everyone,
Today I wanted to share with you the design board for the dining area I put together for my awesome NYC client!  It's a fantastic apartment in the West Village. 

She loved blues and wanted a pattern for the drapes, while keeping the furniture streamlined and modern. We both love white so I found the chairs and table to be a perfect match with what we wanted to accomplish. We have made a few minor adjustments, but this was the original design.

What do you think?

Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited to share with you photos of the DC Design House!

The beautiful photos were taken by Angie Seckinger.
Earlier this week they held a luncheon for press/bloggers. 

This year's house can be toured:

April 13th - May 11th 2014,
4600 Linnean Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20008 

Folks, the designers knocked it out of the park this year! Some truly amazing rooms.  

Which room/space is your favorite??


I adore that Rill Architects chose blue for the door and outdoor accents.
D&A Dunlevy did a fantastic job of the landscaping! 

What an entrance with that floor! Camille Saum knows how to make a statement!

Love this dining room! Simple and chic!
Design by Marika Meyer

Love the use of blue cabinets! Genius!

This room is so relaxing to look at. I could easily plop down and read a book here.

I adore Kelly Proxmire's style.. She hits the mark every time !
