Jamie Herzlinger of Jamie Herzlinger Interiors is nationally known for her skill in creating refined, yet comfortable spaces. Her talent in designing homes that are tailored to the unique personalities of their inhabitants is beautifully displayed in this Scottsdale project for a restaurant executive and his family.

“All the images the clients showed me were 1940’s modern; so really clean lines. Everything was white and a little austere,” says Jamie.

However, “the clients kept speaking to me rhapsodically, about moldings and wood floors, and a true feeling of warmth and family. Entertaining and their children were always to play a big factor.”

It was up to Jamie to blend these two potentially disparate wishes. “When they kept speaking about warmth, while showing me so many clean lines, I knew they needed the more tactile surfaces that moldings can bring to a project.

“The standout items, I believe, are the four upholstered club chairs in the center of the living room with the upholstered banquette tucked into the window. The chairs and banquette are designed and furnished by Jamie Herzlinger Interiors.”

Jamie sets a soft, almost feminine tone in the living room with a pastel palette, tufted chairs and mirrored accents. The piano and large scale art add drama and sophistication.

Jamie’s finite attention to detail is apparent in her design choices for this room. Sheer, delicate window shades allow light to pour in. The tailored lines of the banquette are softened by abundant pillows. Airy occasional tables add interest and provide an organic element to the design.

The family room, flowing directly from the living room, is the yang to its yin. This space is composed of clean lines, large furniture and bold black and white art. However, it doesn’t feel at all heavy due to its neutral backdrop, large windows and high ceilings.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream – because it needs to be. As a restaurant executive, the owner often hosts chefs and needed a state-of-the-art display kitchen.

Gray ultra-suede walls, dark curtains and modern furniture create a club-like feel in the “man-cave”. White wainscoting, bookshelves and dramatic lighting keep the room from feeling overly dark.

When I travel, I am always open to absorbing all kinds of new experiences. Whether it is the inspiration from the color of the sky on a cloudy day in London, or the smell of fresh pastries and black coffee in the morning in the streets of Paris, I am always looking for more. Or maybe it is the color of the waters in the Caribbean that inspires the perfect beach house interior!  Jamie Herzlinger

In a daughter’s room, comfort is queen! The luxurious tufted headboard and comfortable bedding are paired with an inviting sofa. The paper chandelier adds a sculptural element.

To me, a home’s aesthetic should draw on diverse influences within a particular style. One’s home should be beautiful, exciting, thought provoking and emotionally accessible.  Jamie Herzlinger
