Jeffrey Alan Marks's Favorite Items-Shopping Guide Jeffrey Alan Marks

HERE AT THE CHALKBOARD, we’re dedicated to the study of living well, so it makes sense that we have a healthy obsession with interior design. Whether it’s aspirational or more down-to-earth, we love to see the various ways that people decorate the spaces they live and work in. We troll Pinterest looking for the most gorgeous kitchens, always TiVo Flipping Out, and collect Architectural Digest and old issues of Domino looking for inspiration. And, we keep tabs on some of the best, most-influential interior designers out there to see what they do with kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms, too.

Jeffrey Alan Marks is definitely of those tastemakers we’ve long had on our radar. Not only has he been creating luxurious rooms in stunning interiors all over the globe, but this designer has been the driving force behind the look of some of L.A.’s best restos including The Hungry Cat and Tavern, just to name a few.  Click over to his website JAM Design, and you’ll see why Bravo enlisted this industry heavyweight to star in their series, Million Dollar Decorators. Since he can take an empty room and create a masterpiece, we thought we’d pass on our signature questionnaire and see what he came up with—it’s not surprising that his answers are tasteful, thoughtful, and inspiring, just like the man himself.
