The luxe homes designed by one of Bravo TV’s Million Dollar Decorators Jeffrey Alan Marks demonstrate his breezy, tailored look. Jeffrey Alan Marks Inc. (JAM) specializes in residential and commercial interior design and architecture. Inspired by his Southern California outdoor lifestyle, Marks’s trademark look is a synthesis of a fresh informality infused with sophisticated English and European accents. His joyous, comfortable spaces are known for their playful charm, vivid colors, and patterns. He contrasts natural materials, such as weathered driftwood, with sleek finishes. This book showcases a series of beautifully photographed residences revealing Marks’s skill at capturing each client’s personality, from a movie star’s London townhouse full of eccentric furnishings to a charming Nantucket cottage with nautical embellishments. A striking surfside vibe energizes his Santa Monica Canyon beach house, where he hung a rowboat from the whitewashed bedroom ceiling. Marks explains how he made each project’s room a sanctuary where all details are synchronized. Through collective imagery and intriguing collages, he demonstrates his creative process. Marks’s favorite shopping addresses for fabrics, furniture, and antiques complete this inspiring volume.
