Style Setter >>> Jacqueline deMontravel

Friday, February 24, 2012

Where to begin in describing my dear and long time family friend Jacqueline deMontravel.... Simply put she is a Style Setter, moving effortlessly from one design role to the next. She currently serves as the editor of Romantic Homes magazine, while also adding author, photographer, stylist, and designer to her credits. Jacqueline's recently published design book, HERS: Design with a Feminine Touch, is a testament to these honed skills. I asked her what was the inspiration for the book's content and her reply: "The theme generated out of a desire/need for a woman to have an area that is solely hers, a place that is both feminine and modern. Not a lot of chintz, and pillows and mirrors. We do like great design but something that speaks to today's design."

If you are out in the Laguna Beach, CA area and looking for an unique alternate in hotel accommodations, check out the 4 beach cottages that Jacqueline and her husband own that serve as vacation rentals. Jacqueline has decorated each one (Ebb Tide pictured above & below) and as she describes "there are Indian block print linens on the beds in soft pastels, wicker furniture in unexpected shades of bottle green." Her signature touches of interesting & found accessories mixed with comfortable furnishings, provide a peaceful and relaxing backdrop to beach side living.  Click here for rental info.
