hide & seek

We LOVE hides!!!  Sometimes a straight-laced rug just won't do.  The fun look & irregular shape of a hide rug can break up a stiff atmosphere, or be a great solution to an odd shaped room.  Hides are no longer your typical cowboy aesthetic... now they come in all colors and patterns, some with glitz & glamour.  One of our favorite ways to use this look is to layer it over a larger, simple rug (such as a sisal area rug), or to use alone in the center of a seating group.  Check out these fabulously chic spaces that use hide floor coverings!

rock paper scissor

The UPS man brought the most amazing box to our doorstep this morning!  Last month I read about Rock Paper Scissor paper goods in the premier issue of High Gloss online magazine.  When visiting the website, I came across this beautiful grand box of letterpress stationery.  I was THRILLED when I opened the bright orange silk gift box to unveil my four custom designs... they are BEAUTIFUL.  It will be hard to decide which ones to use first!

Choose your box color, and design your own cards with select ink colors, motifs, monograms, and fonts...

homegoods coming closer to home

JMI just wrapped up a 2-DAY REVAMP in North Dallas and loved shopping the nearby HomeGoods store at Coit & Campbell.  When we got back to the office and investigated other locations, we found out that a new HomeGoods is coming closer to us!!!

The Shops at Park Lane, home to Saks Off 5th and Nordstrom Rack, will welcome HomeGoods in the Spring of 2011 (now!!!).  For those of you who are unfamiliar, HomeGoods is a home fashions store that provides a vast selection of high quality and unique home fashions, including brand and designer name merchandise at prices that are 20% - 60% less than finer catalog, specialty, and department store prices.  The new store will be located below Whole Foods and directly across from Nordstrom Rack on the street level.

YES!  JMI is so excited to have a closer location for scouting awesome finds during our fast-paced and tight-budget REVAMPS!  Check out some inspiration images from the HomeGoods website....

from our library | dorothy draper

Readers, meet Dorothy Draper.

As Architectural Digest described her, she was
"a true artist of the design world who became a celebrity
in the modern sense of the word, virtually creating
the image of the decorator in the popular mind." 

Born to a wealthy and privileged family in 1889, in one of the most exclusive communities in American history, Tuxedo Park, Dorothy Draper was the first to “professionalize” the interior design industry by establishing, in 1923, the first interior design company in the United States, something that until then was unheard of, and also at a time when it was considered daring for a woman to go into business for herself.... read more here
