The White Sofa Project: Janet Perry

In case you have missed our previous posts on the white sofa project, here is a quick update.  We have taken one sofa in our retail store and have asked each of the J Banks Designers to style the sofa and surrounding space utilizing pillows, lamps and accessories.  Each designer has the ability to create a space that shows off their “of-the-moment” loves from our retail store as well as how a design client can easily change a space by adding a few new elements.  Enjoy our most recent transformation!

Janet Perry designed the latest vignette.  Here is what she had to say about her choices:

JB: You obviously went with a sophisticated St. Patrick’s day theme but is green a color you like to use in a lot of your work? 
Janet: I love to use green. Just look outside! We are seeing this hue of green in fabrics and in fashion.
We love the gorgeous detail on these pillows!
What a great way to incorporate navy into the vignette through the lamps.
JB: What is important to you when selecting accessories for a space? 
Janet: It is important to have the accessories compliment the space as well as being practical and useful, i.e., lamps, frames for photographs, candles for soft light, etc.
JB: You did an excellent job of mixing different wood colors and finishes on your case goods, yet the room still looks uniform and put together.  Do you have any advice to others on how to do this with their own furnishings? 
Janet: I prefer the eclectic feel to a room. Items have been collected over the years, so taste and lifestyles have changed. So mix your treasures, and “tell” your story.
Using rolled blanket as a bolster – so clever!
JB: What is your favorite item or items in the vignette?  
Janet: The rug is where it all began!
