Vintage Romance from Alice Lane Home
Jessica Bennett is the owner and principal designer of Alice Lane Home, an award-winning interior design firm and showroom known for their fashionable, collected and curated style. From humble beginnings in 2008 as a small retail store with a handful of design clients, Alice Lane has grown exponentially to include a large team that has completed hundreds of residential and commercial design projects, all showcasing their signature playful use of pattern and color. If you visit their flagship location in downtown Salt Lake City, don’t ask for Alice–the name Alice Lane comes from a quiet residential Utah street where Jessica and her family created their first dream home. We can’t wait to see our Rowe and Robin Bruce offerings interpreted through the lens of this gifted designer!
Get to Know the Designer!
- Go-to colors? Secondary colors! They always feel more custom.
- Must-have item? Greenery, a dose of black and a really, really great rug.
- Favorite ‘classic in the making’? Heavy dose of color and a patterned window treatment.
- Dream design project? A boutique hotel, Mary Lawless Lees’s closet…and probably Beyoncé. That’d be neat.
A sense of worldly luxury (with a fair amount of wit!) permeates every Alice Lane space, and their My Rowe Design creation is no exception. “We were craving saturation,” explains the designer, “and wanted to design a space that cocooned the user and lent an experience.” Jessica started by imagining the bold contours and channel tufting of our Ivy Lane Queen Bed in a creamy, textured chenille, then dialed up the drama with accents of raisin purple, blush pink, charcoal, marble and antique brass. “We’ve always loved the horizontal channel [tufting],” says the designer. “It feels vintage, and we knew it’d be dramatic dressed in a white texture in a dark room.” An emphasis on textured textiles–think luxurious wool, velvet and chenille–gives this space a tactile quality that makes us want to sink deeply into an ecru-upholstered Channing Sofa and savor a few sweet moments.
Design Shop Interiors
California Chic from Design Shop Interiors
Leyla Jaworski is the owner/creative director and Whitney Rose is the lead designer of Design Shop Interiors, a Sacramento-based design studio and showroom run by a hard-working team of ten. Leyla is laid-back and refreshing, a proudly self-educated designer with a penchant for jeans and sneakers, but also a consummate professional with a razor-sharp eye for design.
Leyla and designer Whitney (Design Shop’s very first employee) teamed up to create a My Rowe Design look that represents their studio’s fresh, clean aesthetic. Design Shop Interiors consistently takes on an impressive roster of residential and commercial projects–from renovation and decoration to new builds and flips–all finished in their bright, modern & eclectic style. We’re thrilled to see Design Shop Interiors interpret Rowe through their quintessentially California lens!
Get to Know the Designers!
- Go-to colors? We love neutrals, but are also very into greens right now.
- Must-have item? Plant life or greenery. It just makes the room come to life.
- Favorite ‘classic in the making’? Vintage rugs are so beautiful, and always classic.
- Dream design project?
“A midcentury modern A-frame cabin in Lake Tahoe that needs a full remodel is my dream. And I would also like my husband to not put me on a budget when I do it.” – Leyla
“I would love to build a Spanish-style boho farmhouse on 100 acres in Northern California, and fill it with one-of-a-kind vintage rugs, linen, found objects, antique brick, terracotta, marble, and a French range.” – Whitney
Natural materials abound in Leyla & Whitney’s My Rowe Design space, which is equal parts chic downtown condo and safari-inspired bungalow. Our Bradford Slipcover Sofa makes a subtle statement in an ecru linen blend, while a pair of Robin Bruce Miles Ottomans in rich brown leather adds an earthy note. Upscale flourishes such as a bold graphic wallpaper and brass & marble accents contrast with natural hemp and jute accents in a glam boho style that’s anything but rustic. A selection of neutral textiles in wool, cotton and jute rounds out this space with a layer of elegant softness.
Global Haven from House Seven Design
Co-founded by married duo Anissa & Brian Zajac, House Seven Design + Build is an Indianapolis-based interior styling and remodeling company. House Seven began as an outlet for Anissa (a lifelong design lover who, from a young age, spent hours decorating her dollhouse with homemade accessories and scouring antique shops with her mother) to share home design and DIYs, which quickly gained a following and launched her full-time career. Anissa & Brian’s distinctive style, which they describe as “minimal, modern and rustic” has been featured on the Today Show, as well as Domino magazine, Apartment Therapy, Huffington Post, HGTV Magazine and more. We’re excited to see their unique take on all the products that Rowe & Robin Bruce have to offer!
Get to know the Designer!
- Go-to colors? Black, white and deep-toned green.
- Must-have item? A living item–a plant or a vase of flowers.
- Favorite ‘classic in the making’? Open shelving for kitchens.
- Dream design project? Design a restaurant or boutique hotel.
A monochromatic palette meets globally-inspired textiles in House Seven’s signature minimal, fresh take on their My Rowe Design space. “I wanted to create a moody, cozy and warm area in a large open space,” says Anissa, who opted for shades of white and black paired with warm wood tones. Dark wood meets light, airy upholstery in this space, while earthy neutrals–like a pair of Atticus Chairs in rich brown leather and twin Percy Ottomans in a sand-hued woven fabric–keep the look feeling warm and grounded. House Seven’s space is a relaxing oasis that invites visitors to sink into the nearest chair (we recommend the Lyra Chair, looking lovely in a bone white linen blend) and take comfort in this soothing global haven.
