Shopping Jayson Home and Garden


Never Say Never – One Stop Shopping

Just when I thought I was done saying ‘never say never’ here I go again.  Just the other day I was preaching about how I could never outfit a room from one place.  Of course in that instance I was referring to big box retailers.  However, today as I was perusing the goods at Jayson Home and Garden, one of my favorite sources for unique gifts and one of a kind pieces, I found myself doing just that – mentally creating a space from one place.  It was actually fun restricting myself to one source.  Granted, Jayson Home always has a wonderful mix so this was not a particularly hard or limiting exercise.  Based on the pieces that caught my eye, I imagined an office space for myself.



With the exception of the Tanzania wallpaper from Thibault, the seagrass rug, and artwork from MFAMB (because I would totally commission another piece for this office space), all  items can be found on Jayson Home’s website.  Not a shabby foundational start.  I would definitely not be mad about working in this room so I suppose I am, yet again, saying 'never say never' to one-stop-shopping, of all things.




Lots of goodies to be had at Jayson Home.  The feather light fixture and the cartographer’s flat file were heavily considered.  To round out the accessories a bit, I will need something fancy to hold my business cards.  Gorgeous books are a must as are those sun bleached tortoise shells and the lucite trunk which would make a pretty perch for a statement piece or a fantastic repository for some stunning fabric samples.  Also, please note that a stocked bar cart is a must in my make believe office world.  Go on over and take a gander for yourself.

FYI - please note that I am featuring Jayson Home because I have long admired their goods, not because I am being asked or paid to do so.

WORD to that office space!!!
OK, so we can definitely design a space from one source, and not have it look like a showroom, but can I afford it? ;)
No matter - I say YES!

AG - you are right! Affordability is always a sticky wicket. In makebelieveworld money is no object. In mrs. V's world it is - so I use an inspiration room like this one as a starting point for sourcing similar but more affordable options while splurging on one or two of the noteworthy things that will stand the test of time. Cuz I got office spaces on my insane membrane and am hoping to carve one out for myself in this postage stamp.
