Lynch Residence. Most of my design projects start with one piece of inspiration...fabric, pottery, a picture. This project wasn't any different, except that the client knew she loved the gray and yellow combination that is trending right now! So when we both fell in love with this fabric, the room was built around it.
|Inspiration Board: Coastal Industrial Office|
|Jessica Stout Design is inspired by high end design but for the everyday budget. Crate and Barrel Chair: $999 Ballard Designs Chair: $400 with custom fabric|
Since we were buying two chairs for the office, it was crucial to find a similar chair at a much lower price. The Ballard Designs Gramercy chair was the same design as the high end Chloe chair just a little smaller in scale. I was able to buy the exact same Dwell fabric online at www.fabric.com and for a fraction of the cost, I was able to get my client two chairs for less than the price of one!
Notice the re-occurrence of circles throughout the space -- from the rug, globe pattern, chandelier, accents. Repitition and Rhythm are KEY design elements.

|This fabric is AMAZING!!|
It's all in the details!
For me, interior designs really come alive in the details. This is what brings style and life to a room, personality to a space, and makes the room personal for a client. In the Lynch office, the entire family planned to use the space, so it was important to keep it functional with storage and organization while keeping it cozy and comfortable for reading a book.
|Industrial for him, a little bit of crystal for her!|
|I covered the Ball Jar lids with leftover fabric from the chairs!|
|Extra fabric was used to cover the lids of these mason jars for a pop of color and a playful, fun look!|
When making a collection of items in a bookshelf, think of 3 main rules to conquer stylizing shelves.
1. Color: Select 1 or 2 colors to repeat throughout the shelves to make each shelf look uniform. A mix match of colors will just make it look too busy!
2. Repetition: Here I repeated the circle form to keep unity throughout the shelves.
3: The Power of 3: Groupings just look more organized in collections of odd numbers. Here I used the "power of three." A stack of bookcases is considered as one.
