Fall Outfit and Closet of the Day/ Links You'll Love for Fall

I'm in Fall mode in all ways--I want to wear my sweaters, re-do my decor, and throw a party! I have a bunch of ideas and just need to implement them.

I found this glam closet photo and it made me think of the cooler days ahead and this outfit worn by Olivia Palermo is just perfect.  I'm going to try to layer my fur vest over my leather jacket btw... I keep seeing this look and love it..just hope I can pull it off.

What's your Fall go-to?

Juggling In Heels Collaboration- 3 Killer Looks for Fall

Hello! My name is Sarah and I write the lifestyle blog Juggling in Heels. As someone who has always had a love for Interior Design, I am so excited to be here on JWS Interiors today, sharing my love for Fall looks. I am writing this while melting in 100 plus degree heat out in Orange County and am CRAVING the layers that Fall allows us to wear. Since JWS Interiors is dedicated to Interior Design, I thought I would merge my love for style with my love for design and bring together three interiors that I adore and three looks that would work for everyone this Fall. Design and style are so interconnected and you will see them influence each other each season. I believe your home speaks to who you are just as much as your style and I love pushing the envelope with both. Enjoy!

 Black, White and Pink all over This entire room makes my jaw drop. The stripes everywhere, wallpaper on the ceiling, the bright pops of color. I adore everything about this. You will most often find me wearing back and white and I haven't met a stripe I didn't like. Adding a pop of color brings some attention beyond the classic look, making everything a little more eye catching and edgy. This is such an easy look to translate into Fall with black coated denim, leather jackets, cozy knits and of course, a fabulous lipstick and nail color. Everyone needs a little edge every now and then. Via Elle Decor JWI Post Image 1 Screen shot 2014-09-15 at 1.05.34 PM
More Wallpaper Please I have a slight addiction to wallpaper. Okay, it is not slight. I have a major addiction. There is something about beautiful prints lining the walls that makes me smile. I started with wallpaper in my dining room and have quickly moved on to incorporated it into a number of rooms in my home. I love the vibrant red and yellow of this wallpaper and how the simple bed allows the walls to take center stage. I love plaid just as much as I love wallpaper and fortunately for me, it is everywhere this season. Just because the weather is getting cooler and the darker colors become more prominent, do not hesitate to use red to make your statement. This plaid shirt and red lipstick add a little sass to an otherwise casual and simple look.

Classic and Chic As much as I love color, there is something so simple and chic about bringing neutrals together. I love the color combination of brown, black and white in this living room. It feels warm and cozy yet is simple and sophisticated. Fall is the perfect time to embrace the warmth and coziness of neutrals, wrapping yourself up in capes and hats. And don't be afraid to still wear white! It is allowed all year long and can transition from summer by simply adding more earth tones, knits and Fall accessories to the look. This look is so chic and perfect for those cooler Fall days. JWI Image 3 Screen shot 2014-09-15 at 1.38.26 PM   
After creating these looks I am now even more desperate for some cooler Fall weather!
Thank you for having me Jennifer and Happy Fall!


Vintage Chic--A Great Storage Solution

Happy Monday!

So I'm working with a client who needs storage--and let's be honest--pretty storage. Therefore, I'm looking for a beautiful secretary that can be used to keep her office papers in check, offer a place to use her computer, as well as write notes, etc. 

Here are a few photos of secretaries--more vintage style ones--that I found and liked. I'm going  a little more modern, but these look fantastic.

What do you think?

Bold Decor--Glitz and Glam

 Are you bold and a daredevil when it comes to decorating? Or do you like serene & simple? 

I have to honestly say that I can do either and hence that is why I am CONSTANTLY redecorating. I'm can't commit. I think that's the bottom line and when you are in this business, you are consumed with all of these beautiful options available. I feel like I need 3 houses, decorated 3 ways to really fulfill me.. And well, that's not going to happen so luckily I get my "fix" with the honor of working with such great clients--all whom have different ideas and tastes.

So, on this Sunday, I hope you are enjoying your home. I've got some new collaborations to share with you soon and thanks again to all of you whom have commented about my new venture/online shop selling my marble trays. I'm truly excited about this !

The Glam Factor: My Picks for Faux Sheepskin EVERYTHING

By now you know that I'm a girl who likes glam! Nothing wrong with dressing up, putting on heels, and a faux fur jacket. 

And, the glam factor doesn't have to end with your wardrobe.... it can easily be translated right into your home. 

Case in point--faux sheepskin. There are tons of faux sheepskin products--from blankets, to chairs, to rugs, to ottomans--you name it to make your pad nothing short of posh.
