John James

Posted on Thu, 16 Sep 2010 by midcenturyjo

Flights of fancy or is that fantasy? Hand drawn birds fly across a ceiling, carved feet peep from a bathroom vanity, rosy hearts spring from grass. Fun and joy as well as style and substance. Designer John James is a man of many hats though. Not only interiors both quirky and sophisticated by wedding and events design. We don’t usually post weddings on Desire to Inspire (so much interior design goodness and not enough time for anything more!) but I just had to include some shots from John’s portfolio that he kindly shared with us. So elegant yet relaxed. A perfect California vibe!

The birds on the ceiling are incredibly beautiful. what a classy idea! they add such great atmosphere to the room and turn this barely ever noticed part of a room into a marvellous eyecatcher. I'm impressed!

Molly says:

Thank you so much for your blog, I love it. Do you know where I can source that lucite/acrylic side table shown in one of the John James pictures. It is exactly what I am looking for. I am based in the UK so a name of the table would be great.

What a pretty wedding, so unexpected. Tha shindig that won't fade into memory.
Thanks for the beautiful posts day after day… DTI is never boring.

Wow, the roses on that giant clam is a creative way to showcase THE shell.! Kinda expensive too fill it up though eh?

Karena says:

Wow, I am awed! I adore the lucite tables mixed in, fabulous!! Johns work is amazing.

I have a New Giveaway from the French Basketeer that I think you will love!

Great idea with the birds in the ceiling. Lovely images from the wedding!

Lin says:

I'm not big on weddings in general but I'd no doubt change my mind in a hurry if I got invited to one of these venues!
