The Spotlight


VICKI JANSMA:  Newly appointed interior designer brings her aesthetic eye to Gardenology

BELIEFS:  Any room can be transformed into something amazing, even if you take the “less is more’ approach...but not when shoes are involved

INSPIRATION:  Fashion, textiles, mom, dad and city planners.  I’m mesmerized by how a town can unfold into a city and look beautiful

FAVORITE STYLE:  Eclectic, cozy, European...edging towards modern

FAVORTIE ARITST:  Johnny Cash.  I believe everyone should be able to belt out one of his songs at the drop of hat…oh and a real artist...Andy Warhol, anyone who can make a tomato soup can look chic, I’m all about

FAVORITE CHEF:  C. Barclay Dodge and JR Simplot, he invented my most favorite food, the frozen French fry (and also a fellow Iowan)

BACKGROUND:  Designing from Aspen to Anguilla, and most recently Southern California

FAVORITE DESTINATION:  Okoboji, Iowa…if you haven’t been, it’s a must do on the 4th of July

PHILOSOPHY:  Surround yourself with things and people you love.  If you dig will work.  Modifications may apply.

New Ad & New chairs!!

We at gardenology are very excited to have an ad in LUXE magazine! So be sure to check us out on page 51! Here is the ad!

We are also very excited to receive these linen slipcovered chairs yesterday! They are already a big hit and I have it on good authority that Uncle Jim loved sitting in a chair like this. Thus, the chairs are called the "Uncle Jim" chair!

We hope you will enjoy our blog as we develop it and be sure to visit us on Twitter and Facebook!

More to come so stay tuned!
