Once upon a time there was a collection named Franklin at Jess LC. This braille necklace series had intentions that were loved by many people. Eventually the cost for these pieces rose too high and needed to be retired. But all was not lost.
Over the several months I have been reinterpreting Franklin in a new and exciting way. By collaborating with the amazingly talented Morgan and Carrie of Ampersand Design Studio, we have brought back the spirit of Franklin, and now have Jess LC for the home.
It was a treat to do this project with Morgan and Carrie. Not only do our design styles work well together (we all have a love of gold, graphics, and neon pink), but they are simply delightful people as well. I’m also proud to say that the prints are produced in Kansas City on poster-weight paper with gold, neon, and one-of-a-kind inks.
Below you’ll see Franklin’s most popular intentions taken in a whole new direction.
And thanks to the my recent
motto battle cry, we have a newcomer as well.
Meet Just Keep Going.
I decided to make the prints large, 16″ wide x 20″ tall, so their scale can make a statement alone or on a gallery wall. But they are also a standard size which will work with most high and low end frames (aka: you can get a frame custom made or you can find frames that work at most craft stores).
For the lookbook, I knew that I wanted to let the prints speak for themselves in the lives and homes of other people. Though I could have styled a shoot all by myself, I thought it was much more dynamic and interesting to let other interior design fanatics like myself share their visions for these prints.
And I couldn’t be more blown away by the results. These are just a few of the photos from the lookbook (hop over to see the full lookbook).
I’d like to thank the following ladies for participating in the lookbook and styling process, they are incredible women with ambition and style that inspires me everyday.
