Named one of “the town's most-wanted decorators" by The Hollywood Reporter, Jeffrey Alan Marks believes the design process should be fun and creative like his designs and personal style. Jeffrey studied design at the prestigious Inchbald School of Design in England and lived in Paris and Milan for many years allowing his work to draw cues from Italian and French methods. His colorful, comfortable design style translates to the atmosphere at his firm, JAM, Inc. which he started 16 years ago. Based in Santa Monica, the firm designs and develops luxury homes in America and the United Kingdom and develops commercial projects including restaurants and retail stores. New projects include a chain of restaurants in Korea and exclusive eateries in New York, Montecito and West Hollywood. Jeffrey is included in House Beautiful's list of the most influential decorators in American History and is on Elle Décor magazine's A-List. His work is regularly published by major shelter magazines including Elle Décor, German Architectural Digest, and the British In Style Home. Jeffrey is currently launching a new line of furniture, lighting and accessories with Palecek and his first book The Meaning of Home will be on shelves in the late summer of 2013.
