"Refreshing . . . "


by John Jacob Interiors

Greetings,

I'm just totally in love with the refreshing and refined work of John Jacob Interiors in Cape Town, South Africa. I posted on his own home a few months back. The interiors that he creates always have such a sense of calm. And serenity. Beautiful antiques mixed with wonderfully textured fabrics. The sparkle of crystal light fixtures. The cool colour story. And the clear sense of the outdoors in each of the enclosed spaces. Magical gardens just through any number of french doors and large windows.

The Living room.


Details from the living room.

John is always a proponent of the mirrored wall.

Practically perfection.


and seriously. this is just wonderful.

Cheers,

Mr. Jacob's home is stunning, soothing, comfy looking, the whole wonderful mix. How fabulous is it to have a cushy chair in the bath. Count me in to incorporate that idea. Thanks for the intro to Jacob's talents Scot.

Your right there are these little unexpected(thank god)details that make each of these spaces so wonderful to look at! I have the same giant metal spheres shown in the LR under the console table.

Oh my gosh... He is soo talented, so glamorous, so young! I can say that I loved everything I saw (ok, i'm not into nudes)... and I went digging after reading this.

To top it off, he came thru in that video as soooo affable and knowledgeable. Great charisma, no airs. Don't you wish he had a tv show and watch him everyday!!!!!?

Clean and serene, they are appealing indeed.

La Petite Gallery said...

Absolutely elegant. It has an inviting quality and the bath with Mother Nature peeping in is fantastic.
