Inspiration from Jen
Last year I was highly inspired by the work of Oregon-based designer, Jen West. She has a great eye and impeccable taste in fabric. For selfish reasons, I recently asked Jen to send me more pics of her vintage Dunbar chairs covered in Robert Kime's "Susani" linen, shown top. (I've got a new project in the works.)
As a bonus, Jen also included images of exquisite turquoise French Opaline -- all of the glassware is Portieux and Vallerysthal -- and her "crazy old French bronze lamps with foo dogs."
This Jen describes as "A good blanc de chine and shell mirror moment."
Above, "A killer pair of Tommi Parzinger for Stiffel lamps. They weigh about a million pounds each," says Jen.
Another of Jen's current fun projects is her daughter's headboard: the designing mom just ordered Schumacher's "Chiang Mai Dragon," above in aquamarine, and plans to pair it with a John Robshaw duvet.
Jim Thompson's "Illusion" pillow. Notes Jen, this fabric appeared on the cover of Elle Décor a while back.
