Jay's bedroom at the ELLE DECOR 2010 Showhouse. Photographer: William Abranowicz
Known for his playful, pattern laden rooms, Jay Jeffers channels David Hicks for a West Coast clientele. He loves to create drama—a living room has coral walls, a mustard ceiling, and built-in bookcases with Mughal-inspired arches.
Still, he knows when to pull back: At the 2010 ELLE DECOR Showhouse in San Francisco, his master bedroom was a neutral study in luxe, from the cashmere upholstery to a platform bed of his own design in gray tweed.

Dogs are dedicated creatures of comfort. Try as we may to keep paws off, we often let sleeping dogs lie…on beds, upholstered chairs and sofas. Yet to give in to pooch’s penchant for plush is to fret over our fabrics or live without nice things – and Chella Textiles has a bone to pick on that front.
As the go-to resource for luxury performance textiles, Chella knows practicality need never trump style. Sumptuous velvet and chenille, glamorous jacquard, even light and bright designs are not off-limits to four-leggeds whose families live with Chella. Because the coloring actually takes place before the yarn is even created, Chella’s durable solution-dyed acrylics are machine washable, lightfast and relentless in their refusal to allow any household to go to the dogs.

Please join The Northern California Chapter of ICAA (Institute of Classical Architecture and Art) for an illustrated lecture with noted Texan architect Michael G. Imber.
A graduate of Texas Tech University in 1986, Michael Imber is founder of Michael G. Imber Architects in San Antonio. A superb contextualist, his wide body of work exhibits a scholarly and artistic grasp of regionalism, in particular the South Texas vernacular, and a clear understanding of traditional urbanism.
Alan Greenberg lost a talented designer when Michael set out on his own in the early 1990’s. In his unassuming fashion, he quickly emerged as a leader among the current generation of traditional architects. From the start, his office has received serious professional recognition. Southern Accents honored his firm with its Master of the House citation in 2004. Michael G. Imber Architects won the 2007 Arthur Ross Award, the 2007 Dreihaus Form-Based Code Award, and received the coveted Traditional Building & Period Homes Palladio Awards for the years 2010 and 2011.
In 2008, Michael was elected a fellow of the American Institute of Architecture’s College of Fellows. He was a founding counselor of the Congress of Residential Architects, and was the driving force behind the founding of the Texas Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art.

The Arbor collection takes its name from the amazing colors of trees, barks and leaves. Nature, as we know, produces a palette that connects with the senses and Arbor’s colors illicit a warm and calming effect.
This fabric is woven primarily in bamboo, which you know is a sustainable fiber. Bamboo is also inherently anti-microbial for those who might suffer allergies. The stripe pattern is subdued enough to, on a larger piece of furniture, become a subtle texture.
View the Arbor line from Casa Bini Textiles at GaulSearson in the San Francisco Design Center Showplace #300.
