Last week I installed some artwork in one of my clients homes, we literally had every piece picked out and purchased in 1 hour….10 pieces!!! 10 pieces that she loves and that work so well in her newly furnished house.
I spend a lot of time out and about sourcing and shopping for my clients. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you have probably seen some of my great finds this week. No matter who the client, or what the project is, I always have a plan. I never just “shop” without the final outcome or direction in mind. You will find my 7 Top Tips for Getting it Right the First Time below.
A great question was recently posted on my Facebook page and I thought this would be a fun way to respond and share my answer. I would love to hear your favorite tips on mixing fabric patterns too, how do you begin and tackle a home decorating project.
It has been an absolutely amazing Summer and I thought it would be fun to give you a little peek into all that I have been working on and what has been happening behind the scenes at Jennifer Reynolds Interiors.
Happy Holiday Season everyone! I absolutely love this time of year….all of the decorating, the smells, and spending more time with family and friends! I’m hoping to take a bit more time off this year to spend with my kids and family….that’s the plan and I cannot wait!

I was thrilled when a little surprise was delivered to my door step earlier this week. I knew Kathryn M. Ireland’s new book, Timeless Interiors had hit the book stores and I’ve been wanting to pick up a copy. My heavy project load and holiday preparations have held me up from getting to my local book store so imagine my delight when the publisher sent me a copy to enjoy! AND the best part is…..
“They may never want to leave!” That’s the fear some home owners may have when designing an ultra fab guest retreat. This has been an amazing and refreshing project and we’re so close to installation day…..I can almost taste it! The part I love, as though like magic…..one day, a full transformation from an empty unimaginative space to something that looks like it jumped off the pages of a shelter magazine (well that’s the plan anyway)!
I would show you before pictures, but there isn’t any. It was a complete build from the ground up. We’ve located the new “Guest Cottage” above the new (additional) two sports car garage. As I’m sure you’re very well aware of, all great design starts with a well thought out and detailed plan. We’ve done the meticulous planning and preparation, we’ve done all of the specifying, selecting and expediting and now we wait. We’re waiting on a few construction details to be complete before we place the furniture.
So while we wait, I’ll share our plan with you…..here’s the furniture layout. I Believe it or not, we have Dining, Entertainment and Sleeping all located neatly in one small space. Can you spot them all?
Here’s our proposed concept finish board….almost every stitch of furniture has arrived and I can’t wait to get everything put in it’s place. Wonder who the first “Guest” will have the pleasure of staying in this gorgeous room. I will share the finished photos with you soon, so please check back and you won’t want to miss this transformation!
Here’s a few “in progress” shots. Hopefully this will get your imagination going…..and hopefully these will keep you intrigued and excited to check back for photos of the finished space!
You can hardly see it….but there are beautiful hand scraped hardwood floors under that construction paper.
Here’s a quick peek into the beautiful bathroom….as you can see, we had an interesting sloped ceiling to deal with. I think it’s charming….it adds character, don’t you think? Our frameless glass shower enclosure will go in next!
Oh, and did I mention? We have some amazing window treatments planned. Here’s the inspiration and concept board behind the design!
