Fab Friday: Jessica Marx
Hello Fabulistas and happy Friday! Today I'm putting the spotlight on a fab interior designer who not only has a thriving career, but also a great blog, Jessica Marx! Robin Baron: Welcome, Jessica. Tell us a bit about what you do.Jessica Marx: Im a Los Angeles based interior designer and business owner. I graduated from USC School of Architecture in 2005 however, rather than perusing a career in architecture I decided to follow my passion for interior design. I specialize mostly in commercial and hospitality spaces including offices, restaurants and nightclubs and sometimes dabble in the residential world.
RB: How did you get started with your blog Life's Little Jems, and your design business J. Marx Atelier?JM: I started Lifes Little Jems in 2010 as a means by which to organize all the amazing things that inspire me from furniture to fashion, food to photography. There are so many beautiful things that influence my designs and ideas. It can be hard to keep track of them all. A little less then six months after starting Lifes Little Jems, the interior design company I was working for at the time decided to close their LA office. Rather than looking for another job it seemed like natural progression to go out on my own, thats when I started J. Marx Atelier.
Jessie Webster for The Glitter GuideRB: Do you have any quick tips for curating a treasure trove of vintage goods like on your Etsy shoppe, Life's Little Jems?
RB: Do you have any exciting new projects in the works you can talk about?JM: Yes, Im actually currently working on my dream project! Anyone who knows me knows I have a total sweet tooth or two, so designing a pastry shop has always been on my design bucket list. I cant share too much right now because we are still in the early stages, but lets just say its black, white and rose gold all over. RB: Last but not least, what does fabulous mean to you? JM: Fabulous means being true to yourself and sharing everything about you that sparkles with the rest of the world. Share the beauty! Be sure to keep up with Jessica on Houzz!
