Gorgeous Modern Spaces--Tiling An Entire Wall

Happy Friday!

The week went by fast here at JWS Interiors!  I'm working on a slew of new projects and am thrilled at all the great stuff going on! Also, working on getting my online shop together...will be mid-to-late October!  I'll have some beautiful items that make for wonderful holiday gifts! 

For today's post, I wanted to focus on walls.. I'm getting tired of painted walls and wanted to do a little research on walls that have been tiled--completely tiled--and here's what I found:

What do you think? Yay? Nay? 

Have a great weekend!

I never would have though to tile a wall but I think also I would never think of doing a more Moroccan themed room like this one. Its somewhat downplaying the Moroccan to make it a bit simpler and more comfortable.

Styling An Entry: Hanging Art Over A Bench

If you're like me, you like to try new ways to style your home.  

Since many times, a home's entrance can be small, it creates a challenge on how to decorate that space without taking up TOO MUCH SPACE.

This is where my theory of Art + A Bench/Ottoman = Great Entry Styling

Here's why:
-Art fills the wall 
-Bench or ottoman (IT MUST BE NARROW) serves as a seating area or just plain pulls the space together. And in some cases, you've created a nice space underneath to decorate/fill

Here are some great examples of hanging a piece art over a bench/ottoman!

Modern art for an entryway? This could be DIY with a big piece of particle board and some paint samples.

Gallery wall in B I love it! Hallway?



The Girl on a Budget Series has been so popular so I decided to come up with two fun, yet affordable office spaces. These are easy on your budget and still look completely pulled together.

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!
