Maps as Art

Maps are one of those classic design staples that will never get old. When framed or hung correctly, a good map will fit just as well into a modern space as it will a country-chic dining room or that mahogany-clad smoking room. (Those are still around, right?!)

When I came across this new way to frame maps, I almost fell right off of my chair.

How clever is this!? Instead of spending hundreds of dollars to get a custom made frame, carefully attach the map directly on the wall and add a off-sized hanging frame in front of it!

That boring map has instantly gone from blah to bordering on genius.

You could even take this up a notch and use the frame to point out a special area (home, favorite vacation spot…or wedding location, anyone?!)

I’m so loving this. It’s a clean, new take on something that’s been around for decades. This could also totally work in a dorm room or apartment! Hello chic-est rental, ever!!

Would you hang a print and a frame independently like this?

Jewelry Picks for Fall + A GIVEAWAY!

You probably know by now if you follow me on Instagram, that in addition to my interior design business, I’m a merchandiser for Chloe + Isabel. It’s been an AMAZING journey so far! I’ve learned so many valuable things about not only fashion and sales, but how to better understand and help my design clients (that’s you guys!).

Because of my new-found passion for jewelry and sales, I’ve been able to be very successful so far! So successful, in fact, that I’m eligible for a big promotion! I am being considered for a position as a Merchandiser Manager. What’s that, you ask? I’d be given an amazing team of Merchandisers to mentor and coach towards their own successes! So exciting!

In order to be officially considered for this position, I need to have another great month! I’m 3/4 of the way there! So, I’m reaching out to you: my fashion/interiors/Jayme-Designs loving friends!

Will you please help me reach this incredible milestone and score yourself some gorgeous new jewels for fall?
