I've got another design fixation, this time on designer
Jay Jeffers of San Francisco. I'd seen this particular
home he designed in a past issue of Instyle Home
Here's Jay Jeffers putting some
finishing touches on a console.
I just love red consoles.
Jay Jeffers designed this LA house for professional
skater Reese Forbes and his wife Shawn. Isn't that
interesting? You'd think that Reese was a woman's
name and that Shawn would be the guy's name.
They wanted an updated version of Palm
Beach style living and Palm Springs.
Isn't the wallpaper wacky?
I really like the upholstered curling bench.
Their living room is definitely a blend of that
Palm Beach era with a modernistic feel.
Lucite with natural wood, that's an interesting combination.
You can tell by the fireplace that the house is
definitely from the mid-century era of architecture.
What is a rad pad without a bar area?
You can definitely see Palm Beach living in these living
room chairs. The desk in the back reborn as a console
is quite traditional. The blue paint really transforms it
to fit in this living room.
The coat of arms is quite eclectic and very cool.
Here's the backyard pool. It's neat that part
of the house juts out. As with all of my design
fixations, more to come on Jay Jeffers later.
