Hooked on... Circles!

Kelly @ JAX Decor & Design

This is our first time participating in Hooked on Fridays hosted by Julia at Hooked on Houses. Hi!

I’ve become completely hooked on circles. It started with a wallpaper that I saw in Style At Home magazine. I can’t for the life of me remember which issue, but the paper was similar to this wallpaper — Darcy in Pearl from Graham & Brown:

I used Darcy in Amythest on one wall in our guest bedroom (sorry it’s a bit blurry—I think the pattern made the camera dizzy!!):

The lamp base is chrome circles:

The chandelier in our living room has a circle design:

chairs from West Elm:

Pictures of cabinet, bed, and mirror from Design by Cathleen:

Sarah Richardson designed this beautiful kitchen with crotch mahogany cabinetry. Love the circle detail on the custom vent hood (there’s a recipe book holder that matches, but no picture of it, sorry):

Flying Circles shelving designed by Massimo Castagna for Italian furniture manufacturer Ceccotti Collezioni:

Silver circles necklace designed by Kate Bajic:

And how cool is this… designer chocolate from Lagrange 34 in Italy!!

yummmm!!!! It looks too good to eat… almost ;-)

Now circle on back to Hooked on Houses to check out what other bloggers are hooked on this week :-)

Thanks for visiting!!

Kelly, where oh where did you find that living room ceiling light? I'm hooked on it too!

Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

That certainly is alot of circles. I like that purple bedroom, very dramatic.

Things That Inspire said...

I love circles too~ and I love your wallpaper and chandelier.

Where is the chandelier from? It is really beautiful!

Jill GG said...

Love it all! What great choices! Each picture I thought I liked THAT one the best! The wallpaper and necklace are my two favorites... i think... maybe the chocolate and chairs too! I just bought some antique chairs with circle-ish designs on the backs as well and just LOVE them! (check out my blog for pics!)

That's YOUR living room? It's stunning. I love the mirrored cabinets, the wall color, the wainscoting, and all the furniture, really. And that Italian chocolate looks scrumptious. Love it - Now I'm hooked on circles too.

Christy said...

Wow! I LOVE it. I'm totally hooked on your blog now. :)

I am loving that silvery circle wallpaper up top. Why oh why do I fear wallpaper? I Just need to go for it like you did in the bedroom - that looks fierce!

Haven and Home said...

I love circles too, especially the wallpaper. Not to mention the chocolate looks so good!

Unknown said...

Way cool circles. I'm sitting here looking at a room full of squares (not me, silly), and thinkig I need some of those circles!
Especially the chocolate ones...

Jerri at Simply Sweet Home said...

The amythest room is gorgeous. And I love the lamp too.

The lavender bedroom is at once exciting and mello because of the constant movement of the circles. Thanks for visiting my blog---I would welcome any additional advice we can give to clients for remos in this tough market.

I love the wallpaper in the first photo and the floating shelves-so cool!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm off to look around yours.


You definitely need to see the fabric Circlet by Barbara Barry - Kravet. My favourite colour is Glacier.

I am sure you will love it. You need some pillows or some chairs done in that fabric for your living room.

Chloe's Couture said...

The kitchen photo that you posted is gorgeous!!! I love the color of your living room walls!!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Well then...circles it is!

Gorgeous. Thoughtful. And, dayum, geometric. Remember 8th grade geometry???

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Um...It still gives me hives...but THIS is Gaw-jus. Truly.

all the times i have seen your living room, its the first time i noticed the light....that is gorgeous, does it hang down much. I have visualized something like this in my front entrance but it must clear the doorway. Chocolate circles, now that is yummy

Jen @ said...

What wonderful circles! I love the wallpaper you chose - very beautiful!

Well you've certainly got me sold on circles! I love your guest bedroom!! And your table lamp and ceiling lamp are fabulous!

Michelle said...

Fifi Flowers said...

GREAT collection of circle decor... VERY FASHIONABLE!!! You will have to play along with my Fashion Friday some day!

Maria Killam said...

I especially like the light fixture. Nice living room and guest room you have Kelly!

DesignTies said...

Thanks for all the wonderful comments!! I really appreciate it :-) And great to see some new faces here -- welcome!!

For those of you who were wondering about the chandelier... it's called Sausalito and I bought it from Bellacor in the US:

Universal Lighting in Toronto used to carry it -- not sure if they still do. You could also check out the manufacturer's web site to find a dealer in your area:

Thanks everyone!!
