When we last saw Jeffrey Alan Marks, the LA-based interior designer, he was hard at work remodeling the shower at his gym on the Bravo TV show, “Million Dollar Decorators”. That’s been a while–over three years, actually, which is a bit of a surprise to me–so I thought I’d revisit his work and feature some of my favorites.

The Man: JAM

LA-based interior designer, Jeffrey Alan Marks--aka JAM. | japanesetrash.com

Marks likes to refer to himself by his initials, JAM, and tends to look as cool and composed as one of his interiors. On the show, he’s portrayed as bit more frayed at the edges than this photo would have you think.

Malibu

This Malibu living room is a treat for the senses. | japanesetrash.com

This living room is full of great pieces–I love every single one of them. At first glance, the long sofa against the back wall appears to be half navy and half white; I wish it was.

Santa Monica Canyon

The dining and kitchen area of JAM & Ross Cassidy's home. | japanesetrash.com

JAM and his partner, Ross Cassidy, share this home–famous for having a row boat attached upside-down to the bedroom ceiling. This homey eat-in kitchen is appealing.

Coronado

Love the clean lines and terrific materials of this kitchen. | japanesetrash.com

I’m all about the clean lines and sleek contemporary materials of this kitchen. Love the huge window by the sink, too.

Sonoma

Texture. Color. Want. | japanesetrash.com

It only takes a few well-chosen pieces at the right scale to create a stunning space. | japanesetrash.com

These spaces do so much with very few pieces–just the right ones in the right scale and combination and it’s perfect.

Santa Monica

Beautiful wood, stone, and metallics in this kitchen. | japanesetrash.com

Beautiful wood, stone, and metallics make this kitchen terrific.

Another super-crazy week for me in which it seems like I may have actually posted more photos than ever, while actually doing fewer posts. I don’t know if it’s worth trying to keep to a minimum number of posts per day goal or not–maybe I should just focus on posting what I like when I can. Today calls for another weekend getaway post, wherein I propose three far flung locales/hotels for a fantasy trip. Be sure to let me know which one catches your fancy:

Barcelona:

Hotel Omm, Barcelona | japanesetrash.com


Los Angeles:

Ace Hotel, Los Angeles | japanesetrash.com


Berlin:

25 Hours Hotel Bikini, Berlin | japanesetrash.com

Did you know Japanese Trash is also on Tumblr? What I primarily post there is the same thing you see here–but I also repost stuff from the Tumblrs I follow. I like the format because it’s so free-flow and impulsive. So I thought I’d let you know you can find me there if you’re someone who prefers that channel over other methods of getting my posts.

Here are the next few items coming up in my queue from one of the other Tumblrs I like, Bungalow Classic; enjoy!

Terrific saturated blue in this geometric paint job. | japanesetrash.com

Great mix of styles in this space. | japanesetrash.com
