Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays From JWS Interiors

I just wanted to wish you all a wonderful holiday! I'll be signing off the blog for a little bit while I get ready for Christmas and spend time with my family.  I will post some pics of our holiday here and there...

For now, I wanted to show the work of illustrator Wenna Prive, whom I asked to create my business Christmas cards, as seen here ! She is amazing, so be sure to look her up on Instagram @wennaprive!

Happy Holidays! 


A Clever (DIY) Garland

As I've mentioned before, I love Christmas-time and I love all the cards that start rolling in from Dec. through January of all of our friends and family .

 To that end, I'm always looking for creative ways to hang and display our cards. As I was researching for new ideas, I came across this gorgeous fresh garland on NineandSixteen  where they just used clothes pins to attach the cards! How clever!

How do you display your holiday cards?

Blush Hued Decor

I don't know about you, but I love the color blush and LOVE it when I am designing spaces!

Check out these spaces that are oh so lightly hued in blush!

JWS Instagram Tree Challenge Winner

Happy Friday everyone!

Has this week been as crazy for you as has for me?   I went to a great Blogger Party last night in DC --so fun to meet new people in the industry so you'll see pics from that next week.

I woke up sick this morning so I'm going to hibernate all weekend. Maybe I need to take some kind of vitamin pack? Any suggestions? I have so much to do !

I'm excited to announce the #JWSTREE Instagram challenge winner!

Rachel McKernan is the lucky winner! You can follow her 


 There were 59 entries and you all did a fab job on your trees! So many talented people out there!

I chose Rachel's tree because hers was different--I LOVED the use of the burlap around the base, but even better yet, she had a knitted garland wrapped around her little tree! 

Absolutely adorable Rachel! 


Amazing Winter Inspired Photos

I am so in love this year with winter. Are you?  I actually want it to snow (especially for my daughters) so we can make snow angels , drink hot cocoa and play games by the fire. 

Today I wanted to share these beautiful and inspiring winter photos I found. 

Enjoy your Thursday!
