Feature Friday: So Much Better with Age: Kitchen and Dining Room

I'm honored to be here today!  I'm Jamie and I blog at So Much Better With Age.

I love, love, love French, Vintage and Industrial decor.  For the longest time I thought to find my style, I could only pick just one.  Then one day I decided to just make up my own style and put it altogether.  Anyone can put together their style with items they truly love.  

I've always had a hard time accepting my kitchen and dining room.  My dining room was difficult to decorate for some reason.  Not sure why because it was just a plain square box of a room.  My kitchen was an 80s U-shaped kitchen with a bay window so the floor plan could not be changed.  I decided to work with both of the rooms' angles and create something I love where it looks like it was meant to be this way.  It took a lot of time though.  I've lived in this house for nearly six years.

I love neutrals and white with touches of rustic and industrial and French touches.  All of my spaces reflect at least a bit of each element.  I believe if you are consistent in your style and put together what you love even if it seems risky or unusual, it usually always works.  Own it and people will appreciate what you've accomplished.  

Thanks Jamie!

New Favorite Color Combo: Blue + Orange

It's funny, but every time I look through our recent design boards at House of Jade Interiors I notice a theme.... we get excited about a color combo and we can't stop using it! Lately it's been a lot of blues and orange or peachy tones..  For example...

We just designed a playroom for a client and we did teals, greens and pops of coral.  

We are also doing a model home project and the whole house has different blue and peach tones. 

Same thing goes for this Living Room that we designed for a client:

One of our client's is doing a long library hall with built-in shelves and window seats.  This blue and orange color combo is gender neutral for both her boys and little girl. 

We designed this super fun office plan for a client. We were dying over the wallpaper! 

And lastly this is a Living Room we recently designed and installed! We can't wait to share the results with you.  

What about you?  Are you loving this color combo as much as us?

Fabric from Minted

At House of Jade we are always looking for new fabric options. We get tired of using the same options every time so we like to branch out and figure out new places to source beautiful fabric. We're always browsing Minted for affordable art so I was really excited to see they are coming out with new fabric options!  (this post is not sponsored by Minted at all. I just love them!)  Prices start at $32 a yard. These are some of my favorites!
