Today we're thrilled to share Jaclyn Joslin's gorgeous home with you. Jaclyn is an interior designer and the owner of , a boutique and interior design company located in Kansas City, MO. We can't wait to stop by the next time we visit KC. We're really loving all of the earth tones and texture in her space. So refreshing!
"My home is located in Prairie Village, Kansas, and I’ve lived here with my boyfriend, Nicholas, and my Brussels Griffon, Simone, since November of 2013. It’s a 1950s ranch with a simple and modern design. I fell in love with this home for its large windows, brick fireplace and open layout. From the moment I first saw it, I knew it was the one!
"Hands down, my favorite space is the living room. With its large windows and vaulted ceiling, it feels much larger than it actually is. It’s open to the dining area and kitchen, making it a central and inviting focal point for the home. Most evenings you can find me piled on the sofa with Nicholas and Simone, snuggling and watching our favorite show.
"One of my most favorite pieces is the vintage coffee table in my living room. It was my grandparents', and after they passed, I found it shoved into a corner of an unused room. I had just moved into my home and knew that it would make for the perfect addition in my living room.
"Another one of my favorites is a vintage chair, also in my living room, that I had reupholstered in mudcloth. For a little chair, it packs a big punch! And somehow, despite the recent trend of mudcloth everything, I’m not sick of it!
"Because I’m an interior designer and own a home décor store, I’m always bringing home new textiles, furniture and accents to try out. Most recently, I’ve found my home has become heavily influenced by my trips abroad. For instance, the rug in my living room is from my trip to Morocco last year. It adds the perfect pop of color, and I think the unique pattern goes a long way in making a statement while adding flair to the space.
"I’m also so in love with the piece of art above the bar in my kitchen. I found it in an antique shop while visiting a friend in San Diego. It’s riddled with creases and tears and not in the most desirable frame, but the imagery is so powerful. I’ve always wanted to know the story behind it.
"I’ve lived in this house for three years and am happy to say that it is constantly evolving! The kitchen was originally very dark with a black granite countertop and backsplash. When we renovated, I opted for a lighter countertop, fresh pearl backsplash and painted cabinetry. The end result is a relaxed, light and airy space with sparkle and rustic sophistication!"
