Thomas Jayne’s interiors always send me into deep contemplation on "American Decoration." also the title of his latest book. I’ve come to recognize his mastery of pulling from traditional design and reinterpreting it for a contemporary lifestyle; merging the two in a unique way that few are able to do.
The author, historian, and decorator has a well established studio here in New York City. He complied some of his best projects in this stunning publication. These designs seek a balance of colors, and show a thoughtful consideration of composition. Jayne also has a profound understanding of light as a design element and plays on its intensity.
As a supporter of quality and craftsmanship, Jayne has a few signature elements, including natural materials, handwoven fabrics, and hand-printed wallpaper that make his spaces memorable. Here is a look at a few projects that showcase his style.
