I was first introduced to the interiors of John Jacob by Barbara Jordan Deitweiler who pens the wonderful blog Haus Design here http://bjdhausdesign.blogspot.com/2011/09/john-jacob-interiors-intriguing-south.html. Barbara’s blog is filled with inspiration. She sources the most wonderful images for her blog. With the advent of pinterest I continued to run across many more images of John Jacob Zwiegelaar’s designs. His designs are innovative yet timeless. In his own words his particular forte is a contemporary classic look defined by a series of monotones ranging from dark chocolate, to black and grey, each matched with white. His use of mirrors, African art and textiles also hold center stage.
This image is a study in symmetry and proportion
Notice the un expected “objects d’ art” behind the sofa. They really carry the room. I am crazy about this room.
Beautiful finishes and textures here
Love his use of African Textiles and Objects in this room!
This vignette is pure genius…a study in contrasts
If you would like to see more of his work go to http://www.johnjacobinteriors.com/interiors.php. I could have posted every image from his site. I hope he will publish a book one day. I can’t get enough of his work.
