REVEAL | Project Jewel

The holidays are over and a new year is upon us.  That means it is no longer socially acceptable to put Baileys in the morning coffee and JD Mills is officially back in workflow mode.

I have a ton of projects in the works for 2015, but I’m going to kick the year off sharing photos of a project I completed in the middle of last year. You might recall that gorgeous ceiling I designed, well I am finally showing off the completed space.


Jewel 5Adding architectural details is my favorite element to the spaces I design, and this ceiling is no exception.  I must say it turned out fantastic, although very difficult to shoot. Architectural Elements did a phenomenal job executing my vision, by manufacturing, prepping and installing the ceiling, crown, and panel moulding. You can read more about the entire process HERE.

Jewel 1I can’t seem to resist a good topiary in an urn. These urns were found at a local secondhand store – score!Jewel 9We ended up returning the originally selected chandelier and went with something a lot little more blingy.  I like that is adds so much sparkle, but is still a simple shape.Jewel 8I am crazy for this barmoire and actually quite jealous my client got it. I had originally sourced it for my own dining room.

Cheers!Jewel 12I loves me a Louis style chair, especially with nailhead trim. I also think Perisan or Oriental style rugs can work in any space. Jewel 7The completed space is elegant, but still unique. I hope you like it as much as I do.Jewel 11While working on the dining room, I also did a little refresh in the powder room.Jewel 13It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the wallpaper is sparkly and textured, almost like glitter..
Jewel 14You can read about the design process HERE, but the long story short goes a little like this…

    Hello, just wanted to let you know, don’t mean to point it out but I noticed that on the main page, your Project Jewel, the silo cuts off the words and creates Project Jew. Just a heads up, pun intended?

  12. Great Work! Its bold but refined. I really like the ceiling in the dining room too.

  13. Ceiling envy! Damn it’s so good. I’d just stare up all day and ignore my dinner guests. That is all.
