Eye Candy from John Jacob Interiors


I'm cheating a bit because I posted the above picture back in July - but this could be one of my all time favorite rooms. Maria Killam of Colour Me Happy recently did a post on when accent walls work and I think this brown grasscloth accent wall is perfection in this room. I was introduced to South African designer John Jacob Zwiegelaar via Porchlight Interiors and often visit their site to see what's new. The following are more gorgeous images of his work.

I love the top room as well and have studied it relentlessly. This room started my lamp fetish- in this space alone there are 7 lamps PLUS the overhead fixture. I agree- normally accent walls are a no for me but this one works.

Thanks for the mention!! This room is just like the lavender room I posted in terms of being symetrical so that's why the accent wall works!! Beautiful post, thank you!

Fantastic. I love everything about these photos. The white is so strong! And I agree with you about the accent wall-it's done right in the top photo. Thanks for re-sharing this amazing designer.

I love that his work is masculine, yet pretty. Also contemporary but still traditional. Lovely

Wonderfully fabulous images!! I love the chandelier, and the lavender room, is great as Maria says!

I can imagine myself watching American Idol in the first room...if there were a flat screen over the fireplace...perfect.

Thank you for another year filled with inspiration...Happy New Year.
