Over the past weekend, Remy Martin and Cointreau invited us to stay at Sunset Islands Homes in Miami Beach for the Annual Art Basel city takeover and it was unforgettable! Miami was filled bloggers, photographers, celebrities and artists of all kind and of course, the most fashionable of people.
It was an honour to be featured in New York Magazine, In the Cut’s piece as one of the best street stylers from Art Basel, Miami. This picture was taken on Lincoln Road by the amazing Brooklyn photographer Genevieve Garruppo. Of course, I was dressed in head to toe in JACFLASH!

One of the most loved styles of design in a space is where a rustically organic style harmonizes seamlessly with modern features. Spaces By Jacflash often caters to male clients who love this more masculine style, as it gives off an effortlessly refined, yet weathered and lived in look that is much desired. A masculine space should be relatively relaxed, so in using these organic elements, a monochromatic colour scheme and a touch of drama to the space, it gives every man the living space he can relate to. Features such as exposed wood, brick or concrete are always a plus but can be easily added or imitated if not already existing in the space. Other unexpected elements to use are live edge wood features like a headboard or table with a dark accent wall.
Spaces By Jacflash recently designed a Yorkville condo in which used a barnboard headboard and live edge coffee table coincide with a matching media shelving unit.
Below are both inspiration photos we love and projects we have done in this style. Tell us what you think of the classic and contemporary style that achieves this masculine and unconventional charm.

There is a new trend that brings ultimate comfort and lounging indoors: hammocks and swings create eye-catching loungers to any room. Spaces by Jacflash has recently designed a couple of spaces with hanging swings that truly brings a WOW factor to both spaces.
A recent space we designed is the Queen St. boutique, Untitled & Co.. We created a Mongolian wool bench, with gold chain hardware to accessorize the space in harmony with the rest of the store. You may have seen photos of this striking swing on the Instagram accounts of many of Untitled & Co’s customer’s.
Another hanging swing we used, is at one of the trendiest boutique office spaces in the city, #Paid. We used a white knitted hammock that looks perfect in the lounge area of the office. In this space, we really wanted to utilize the raw exposed materials in the building like the brick walls and shelving unit filled with wood logs to create a cozy, organic vibe, and this swing really brought this semblance to life.
Other hammock inspiration we love…
Until next Trending Tuesday… xoxo the Spaces by Jacflash team.
Applying wall moulding to your space is a great way to incorporate line and shape into your room, and brings with it a classy and sophisticated feel. We recently adding panels to a small room in a house we are working on and here’s how we did it:
What you will need:
–MDF chair-rail moulding (1-2″ wide)
– mitre saw (45 degrees)
– measuring tape
– wood filler
– paintable caulking and gun
– stud/metal finder
Planning out your design. You need to know exactly where each panel will go and ensure that each box is visually appealing. We first measured the wall to see the width of it and divided it by the number of panels, giving space in between each panel approximately 6″ and 2′ off the ground and 1′ down from the ceiling. You need to know how many pieces you need to cut and of what size before you begin.
Measure how long each piece of chair rail needs to be with a pencil then using a 45 degree angle to cut your chair-rail (using a mitre saw helps). Cutting in opposite directions on every other piece to form a 90 degree angle.
Apply caulking on the back of each piece and carefully stick it to the wall to form your perfect rectangle panel. For extra support (we found that some of the pieces of wood were a bit curved therefore making it harder to stick to the wall) use a stud/metal finder to see where to hammer in a nail or two for extra support.
Fill the holes and uneven edges with wood filler and smooth with a damp finger.
Wait at least 24 hours to dry, sand over any bumpy edges and paint over!
Enjoy your new sophisticated space.
