Collecting & Displaying

As a design team, we seem to collect so many special, decorative items and books that we want to show off. Coffee tables and shelving units are perfect areas to display these nick nacks without crowding other areas of the home. After all, these are the books and items that make your house your home.

We love the way this bookcase is setup in a monochromatically. There's nothing more chic than white, black and grey.

One of our clients came to us a couple of months ago with a challenge. Take her newly acquired rental property from dumpy to chic... all in 2.5 months!

Holiday Decor by JSS

All of our clients are asking for help decorating their homes and tables for the holidays this time of year. So, we thought we'd share some of our previous work! Check out the gallery below, and get in touch if you need help executing your holiday decor.

Whether you're hosting a dinner for family, a cocktail party for friends or a huge bash for colleagues, we can execute ideas big and small. Our services range from 1-hour consultations to help you ideate and give you the tools to execute your own decor & setup, to full-service design plans and execution. Shoot us an email at to get started. We'll first jump on the phone for a few minutes to discuss what you need help with, what your timeline is and determine an appropriate budget.

Some of our offerings include:

Indoor holiday decorating

It's the month for drop-ins and impromptu shin-digs. Get ready for entertaining anytime - we'll elegantly decorate your home and get you all set with the right ingredients to host anytime. From the wine & snacks to have on hand, to the perfect appetizer plates and napkins.

Outdoor holiday decorating

Do you want your house to stun? We'll help you with the perfect lighting setup along with fresh garland and wreaths to polished urns. Get in touch quickly, as our handyman's availability is filling up quickly. Just need some advice but want to do-it-yourself? We'll stop by and help you develop a plan along with a shopping list.

Large groups

We can help rearrange furniture and decor so that your home looks put together but provides space for more folks. The best parties have great flow - we'll help you determine where the bar should go and where to put out food so that people can move around and mingle. Have you thought about music? We'll help you set the tone with our favorite playlists.


Need to impress the in-laws? We can put together a stunning table of either fresh flowers and plants, or something that will last all month long.


Have too many guests coming for dinner and need help setting the table? We can source extra tableware or help you to elegantly put together mismatched yet coordinated table settings.

Black Paint

Black paint can be super difficult. It takes the right amount of light (ie tons) as well as the right kind of light (ie not too diffused). Reflective factors like velvet, and bright colors like tons of white, all complement black paint.

As you can see in the below pinterest board, black paint can be used in a ton of different applications, from transitional to contemporary homes. Some of these rooms use a super high-gloss paint, while some are more matte.
