About This Book

In his first book, acclaimed interior designer Jay Jeffers displays the sophisticated yet playful spirit of his work. Jay Jeffers is known for his fearless and inventive use of color and pattern, his brilliant mix of art and furnishings-including antique, vintage, and modern-and the redefinition of traditional style from his modern point of view. Luxurious but livable, his designs always include a fresh and lively kick: a high-gloss, tangerine-hued ceiling or a hallway papered in a cheeky print. Jeffers presents his most stunning projects divided into four groups: Collected Cool, captivating rooms that are thoughtfully layered, revealing themselves over time through myriad details; Bold Bespoke, interiors viewed through a sartorial lens with custom elements essential to their unique style; Unabashed Glamour, rooms that make an instant impression with their luxe finishes, sumptuous materials, and sparkle; and Casual Chic, comfortable but stylish spaces with a sense of ease. In each section, Jeffers shares his process and gives guidance for re-creating the look at home. Witty and exuberant, and filled with details on process, color, furniture, and accessories, Jay Jeffers: Collected Cool will be an endless source of inspiration.

    "In Jay Jeffers’ first book, Collected Cool: The Art of Bold, Stylish Interiors, the interior designer delves into the spirit of his work and takes readers through his projects. He divided his work into four groups: Collected Cool, captivating rooms that are thoughtfully layered, revealing themselves over time through myriad details; Bold Bespoke, interiors viewed through a sartorial lens with custom elements essential to their unique style; Unabashed Glamour, rooms that make an instant impression with their luxe finishes, sumptuous materials, and sparkle; and Casual Chic, comfortable but stylish spaces with a sense of ease.

    "Jay Jeffers: Collected Cool
    is subtitled The Art of Bold, Stylish Interiors and the author more than delivers in lively, sophisticated rooms that artfully mix the vintage and au courant in ways that feel modern, refined and delightfully unexpected. It's just the thing to celebrate the arrival of spring." -Boston Proper/Style Edit 

    "...Mr. Jay Jeffers is one of the top dogs in the Interior Design "Best of Show" arena, and he has just come out with his first book: Jay Jeffers: Collected Cool...Jay Jeffers has been one of my long time favorites, and many others seem to agree. He has been on Elle Decor's A-list for the last three years running. Jay seems to think of every little thing, from the Grosgrain tape color under the nail heads on an upholstered chair to the wood beaded detail on a lampshade, to the custom fireplace screen with colorful agate slices that creates another opportunity for art placement. For a place to be truly COOL, Jay understands the necessity for collecting....for adding a bit here and a tad there that will create character in a home." -KateDID

    "Having created city and country homes throughout the U.S., Jeffers considers the book an expression of his personal design philosophy. Jeffers considers the book an expression of his personal design philosophy." -Hartford Current
