Designer Jay Jeffers – San Francisco Apartment With Amazing Views

Freda A. Nix

Designer Jay Jeffers is known for creating interiors that are perfect reflections of their owners. He is drawn toward projects where a story can be told, as is evident in the homes featured in his two design books, Be Bold: Bespoke Modern Interiors and Collected Cool: The Art of Bold, Stylish Interiors. He also creates lighting, furniture, and accessories for Arteriors.

Jeffers’s designs are driven by the personality of his clients and their lifestyle. “The geography of the home and its inhabitants inform the aesthetic even more than I do,” he says.

One such homeowner was in search of a modern interior that could complement the extraordinary views of the Golden Gate Bridge in his new home in San Francisco’s Russian Hill neighborhood. He sought out Jeffers, who jokes that his firm seems to have a niche in designing “bachelor pads.”

Between hosting her own daytime TV show, coaching hopeful vocalists on NBC’s The Voice and working on her latest musical project, “I Dare You” (which will be released this Thursday), Kelly Clarkson has also found time to create a new home decor collection with Wayfair.

Clarkson teased the collection, aptly named “Kelly Clarkson Home,” in an Instagram post last week, acknowledging the strange timing of releasing a new product line during this uneasy period. “I am so excited to share my home collection that I’ve been creating with Wayfair,” Clarkson says in the clip. “We were going to put it off because of the pandemic and stuff but then we kind of thought, ‘Well, we’re all stuck in our homes,’ so what better time to look at your house and go, ‘What could make me happier in this moment?’”

Molly Bernard’s Brooklyn Apartment Is an Instant Mood Lifter

Freda A. Nix

Before embarking on a search for her dream New York City apartment, actor Molly Bernard compiled a wish list. Light was a top priority, she decided, as was a one-and-a-half or two-bedroom space with enough room to grow a family. Other items included in-unit laundry, a dishwasher, and the sort of overall warmth and sense of safety that comes only from the experience of feeling truly at home. “What I ended up getting was a one-bedroom apartment with a fantastic view of the city—which was nowhere near my list of things,” she reveals with a laugh. “Laundry’s in the basement and I won’t be able to grow into this space when my partner and I decide to have kids, but for now,” she says, “it’s absolutely perfect.”

Want to Support Small Businesses? Shop These 15 Fashion and Beauty Brands

Freda A. Nix

It may seem like an odd time to pick up a new pair of shoes or a cushy cashmere cardi, but it’s actually a better time than ever to shop from small businesses and boutique brands. Many of these fledgling companies are worried about going under because people aren’t getting out and shopping like they used to. Even if you don’t have any extra spending money at the moment, following your favorite local boutique on Instagram or sharing your love with a comment or IG Story post can go a long way toward supporting these small businesses. And while we’ve been hearing a ton about bigger brands’ efforts to contribute to COVID-19 relief, the little guys are doing their part too, with many of them donating a portion of sales to relief funds or pivoting production to sewing together masks, gowns and scrubs.

So go ahead and pick yourself up
