Was I the only person who noticed that every room in this weeks episode was grey? I think not! Talk about trends: Mary’s grey Gracie wall paper, Martyn’s hall of mirrors and silver leaf everywhere. We have grey overload! I wish you could have seen the gift-wrapping room we designed for the La Jolla project, it was a riot of color.
I’m happy the little girls' bedroom made the show. All the pink was a breath of fresh air after all that grey. I used all of Kathryn Ireland's fabrics and her wallpaper, and it injected some joy into the house. I think the pops of pink in the living room and the colorful art in the dining room, as well as the turquoise chairs, help to enliven the scheme. I like a simple color palette, but you always need a jolt of color somewhere, or the room ends up being a monotone snooze.
So much more happened on the install that I wish you could see: a house of that size is full of little treasures, but sadly the show is only an hour long and we had to see Stacey Dash’s silver leaf ceiling!
Jeffrey Alan Marks! The house was sooooo gorgeous! I wish they had spent more time showing the after! It's beautiful! I wish I had this house! Your exchange with Mary was so funny. Keep up the good work!
Beautiful work, Jeffrey! I LOVED it! I covered some chairs once in what turned out to be too grannie, and I didn't realize it until after they were delivered...bugged me for so long until I recovered them in such a perfect fabric, they are still covered in that fabric! I loved the color behind the shelves, too, it looked so nice once all the furniture was in!
JAM has a great sense of style - the phrase and philosophy 'Martha's Vineyard meets Paris' is perfect. That being said you know it just isn't that impressive to tastefully furnish a home with a budget of 'only a million and a half dollars'.
Jeffrey, I adore you and your style. Loved the way the La Jolla beach house turned out. The mixture of eclectic chairs around the dining room table was nice and yes, very Vicente Wolf. By the way, it's pronounced Vicent-AY (the Spanish pronunciation) Just FYI.
Ah, Jeffrey, your designs will never need the crystal knobs and silver leaf of MLB. Please don't change. I loved the cozy feel of the house, the sweet girls' bedroom, and the variety of dining chairs. And what a fantastic rush it must give you that your clients adore it and live there more than they expected. (Personally, I could have done with SD's fake orgasms for more JAM and RC).
