You know when you dream of a beautiful white kitchen but have a not-so-pretty brown one?
Check out a sneak peek on this kitchen we did--this was a budget job that looks twice as expensive. Why? Because we painted the cabinets and used super white granite instead of marble.
Super white granite has a similar look to marble but without the headache. It's durable--no water rings, stains, etc.
For the luxe touch, we did use a marble back splash that was only $15.99 a square foot.
Stay tuned as we show more on this fun project.
So I've been a little absent from the blog (obviously!). It's been a crazy week as I was in NYC for a new, exciting project that I can't wait to share with you soon! It's going to be super fun!
While my style tends to lean modern with a glamorous twist, I'm finding lately that I am very drawn to more boho chic, industrial or even Scandinavian design.
I loved this image below and wanted to share today.
One design trend I'm seeing for 2016 is mixed materials in the kitchen. The use of stone, metal, wood, and more is becoming so popular.
Take a look at these gorgeous, urban kitchens.

I don't know about you, but it's freezing here in the DC area, which leads me to my weekend links to love. It's been a very hectic month and there are very exciting things on the JWS Interiors' horizon! I can't wait to share with you soon.
Weekend Links to Love
I love this sleeveless sweater for Valentine's weekend
These moccasins are not your mother's .. These are COOL
This hotel looks so amazing in winter!
As a designer, I see so many ideas a day that I love when it comes to my own decor. So much to choose from on a daily basis!
The need to update my own office was crucial for me as we started 2016. JWS files, fabric swatches, client folders, and most of all Box of Chic inventory was making a mess of my office. I needed to break up with my old organization habits and welcome in a more practical approach to my office--from adding in new storage and making the most overall use of my office space.
I felt I needed a new desk--I found an affordable white lacquer beauty and decided to float it in the middle of the room, allowing two pushed-together desks in the back of the office to serve as work space for others.
I've still got some work to do, but if you haven't seen these on Instagram, here they are! Details on sources will be presented once the entire room is featured, so stay tuned!

Loving our new bar cart--I use it to store fabric swatches.. still tinkering with accessories, but here's the "first draft"
My favorite design element of the whole room--a new gold urchin light!
A comfortable, yet sophisticated family room was my edict for this client.
I always provide clients with multiple design boards depicting different options so that they feel they have choices for key pieces. It's fun to see it all come together.
This one I tinkered with to present to you for the blog. Let me know what you think!

It's been a while since I posted a design board, so let's start off 2016 with some of my ideas for clients. This client already owned the sofa shown and just purchased the TV console. She wanted a "natural" look but something a little glam that is put together and all in all, pretty.
She liked the idea of mixed metals, so I incorporated the faux fur stools she loved with gold legs and added in my favorite silver floor lamps.
