On Tuesday, I had a wonderful day! I met designer Jennifer Paganelli!! She is warm, kind, creative, and very talented. She invited myself and my friend Victoria to her home so that I could interview her for my podcast.
Here we are me, Jennifer, and Victoria. We had such and good time and her home was such a treasure trove of inspiration at every turn. What FUN!! So let's take a peek...
This wonderful bed is dressed with fabrics and pillows from her newest line of fabric Honey Child... you can find it in my shop!! But the neat thing is the headboard is dressed with her grandmother's yo-yo quilt! Just genius!
This pillow, in particular, I was just drooling over. PINK... I love it!
Talent and creativity just oozed out of every crack and crevice in her home. This lampshade was made by her and I love it too! Very romantic.
Here are some shelves filled with vintage wallpapers where she gets some of her inspiration for her fabric designs.
Shelves loaded with vintage clothing and linens where she also garners design inspiration.
In the podcast interview she spoke of making these Christmas ornaments as a child, by her Grandmother's side. She continues to recreate them in her adult life. Just beautiful bowls filled with these ornaments.
Look at these wonderful glittery, sparkly trees just sitting in her studio for all to see.
Trinkets, baubles, and lots of creative goodness!
Beautiful clothing made from her various fabric lines hung every where.
Not only was Jennifer open and kind to us, but she was also giving. She gifted both Victoria and I original JP Tunics! You can see Victoria all dressed up in her by clicking here.
So, now you just have to listen to the podcast. It is a treat!!
