Style Icon: Olivia Palermo On Her Wedding Day

It's wedding season and today I wanted to share photos of Olivia Palermo's wedding day to her long-time beau Johannes Huebl which took place earlier this week in Bedford, NY.

 True to setting her own style, she wore a beautiful 3 piece ensemble designed by Carolina Herrera. 
Palermo wore chic white shorts, a cashmere sweater and a full tulle skirt overlay. As always, she looked beautiful and very natural for their "big day."

What I adore is that she wore her hair in a loose pony tail.. tres chic! And look at her "something blue"! LOVE!

XOXO

Jet Setter: Santa Barbara


Hi! 

We are finishing up our family vacation plans to California. I'll have more details and posts on our getaway, but for today's post I wanted to share one resort we are booking for our drive down the Pacific Coast Highway--Bacara Resort and Spa .

I actually saw photos of Bacara on Instagram and was smitten as we needed a mid point hotel on the way down to southern California.

I've never been to Santa Barbara so I'm excited to see this beautiful town!

Do you have any recommendations for Santa Barbara?

XOXO

Pastel Shades.... Rooms That Sparkle

Hello!

For today's post I wanted to focus on using pastels in design.  Pastels I think have some people screaming and running in the other direction as it relates to design, which is why I wanted to highlight well-done pastel rooms that are not too "feminine" but rather, elegant and sophisticated.

In particular, I'm really liking mint colors for decor.  It is by far the last color I would do because I'm a neutral decor kind of gal, BUT I absolutely adore it and in fact just finished a very glam master bedroom in mint and white. For my photo shoot yesterday, I can say that the room came out so serene and elegant that the male painters & contractors were even asking for the color name used on the walls!

Check out these photos today.. A mix of lavenders and greens (a great color combo) as well as mint with coral/fuchsia/shades of blue.

Which is your fav?

XOXO

Coral Rooms

HI Everyone!
I hope you are doing well!  Today I wanted to share rooms infused with the color coral. I think coral can look so chic, sophisticated, glam and sometimes feminine.  

I think coral goes particularly well with grays, mint, and navy! 

Loving these rooms featured today. 

XOXO

A Look of Luxury: Canopy Beds

I don't know about you, but I associate canopy beds with vacation.  Luxe hotels like to envelop you with cozy rooms, posh linens, and well many times, a canopy bed. 

Specifically I feel like Caribbean resorts like to use them, draped with white gauzy drapes to create a romantic feeling (and help keep the mosquitoes out! )

Since it's summer, I thought I'd share some pretty rooms which show all types of gorgeous canopies!

Which is your fav? 

XOXO

A Relaxing Sunday

Good Morning!

Hope you are having a great weekend.  One of the little joys in life is breakfast in bed or in my house perhaps an abbreviated version--coffee in bed.

I found this picture and thought now THIS is breakfast in bed...in Thailand!

Hope you have a lovely day as we head into a new week!

JWS Interiors' New Look & Taking A Good Quick Photo

Good Morning and Happy Friday!

I am so thrilled to show you JWS Interiors' new website/blog! It's a more clean look and will have more content over time too! 

I'm still adding to the site but have already added a new page on the sidebar: "STYLING TIPS"
It will bring you to my tips on styling tables as well as how to make your room look it's best.  There will be new photos added as well. 

For today, I snapped a shot of my new orchid and new black and box white with my iPhone5. 

When you want to take a quick photo like I did here, set your tabletop items on a dark or light solid -color surface. I like black or white, but a hot pink would look great! 
Arrange your items how you wish and then carefully hold your iPhone or camera above the tallest item. My orchid was pretty tall, so I just held my phone just above the orchid and snapped it. I love how it came out with the flowers in the forefront. 

I hope you have a fabulous weekend. It's my birthday tomorrow so I'm thrilled to start the weekend celebrations tonight!

Follow me on Instagram @jwsinteriors to see this week's celebrations!

XOXO

Jet Setter: Greece

I don't know if it's because it's summer or because I'm a dreamer, but I've always wanted to go to Greece.  The white on white images with the gorgeous blue sea are nothing short of breathtaking.  

So for today's post, I wanted to showcase the Katikies Hotel in Santorini.. and..yes, p.s... I'm hoping  my husband reads this post and perhaps looks into taking me later this year.. fingers crossed ;) 

Check out these stunning images--indoor and out--of beautiful Greece. 

If you've been to Greece, please post your travel tips and recommendations!!

Making A Room Look It's Best --Tips & Tricks

Hi Everyone!

Today I wanted to focus on sharing my thoughts on making a room look it's best and by that I mean layering and adding the appropriate accessories in the right spots. 

This is top of of mind right now as I head into next week buying last minute accessories for my  photo shoot of my project I've dubbed "Project Glam Condo"--a penthouse style condo that my wonderful client LG has let me design top to bottom. LG-Love ya! This project is very dear to me as I've spent 9 months working on it--a labor of love really!

So, that brings me to my tips for layering.  When the photographer comes and you can see photos on the ipad or computer, we can quickly adjust the accessories so that the space/vignette looks good. This is a tremendous help when you are shooting all day and of course you want the photos to be perfect. 

XOXO
Jennifer

TIPS:
!) Layer, layer, layer -- while I like clean lines, and less clutter, adding accessories on tops of books, filling in dead space on bookshelves is crucial.  For example--a lot of times the backs of bookcases are empty--why not put a pretty framed photo or piece of art in the back. Just rest it against the bookcase/wall to fill up that empty space. Place books bindings at the front edge of the bookcase, not the back

2) Rugs--Rugs add warmth and depth. I'm a big fan of using a sisal carpet and then layering a hide on top. I love the look. Or, a single shag rug can do wonders because of great texture!

3) Coffee Tables--be sure to add flowers, 2-3 accessories--both large and small to add dimension and BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS. Using a tray is nice to keep things organized. (Hide your remotes when possible).  Add in some things shiny, some matte for added depth

4) Wall space--this can be tricky depending on the look you are going for. Obviously if it's minimalism, then less is more.  But if that's not the case, wall galleries are huge right now!  You can mix and match anything and it can look great (Check out my instagram @jwsinteriors for great examples) 

5) Your Sofa--yes, you need accent pillows, but don't forget to add a throw (maybe a faux fur throw) for that added layer and texture. If you have a solid fabric on your sofa, why not trick it out and add ribbon edging to pillows or the skirt portion?

6) Your Kitchen--I like clean countertops--no appliances scattered throughout (I realize not everyone can do this in small quarters), but if you are able, hide the appliances and add flowers, a big bowl for fruit and perhaps some ginger jars or glass pottery.  If your cabinets don't go all the way to the ceiling you can use that dead space to fill with a collection of some sort

7) Add life!  Be sure to add in a tree or two--I love Fiddlefigs!  The green is an excellent pop of color and plants turn out pretty in photos too
