As we continue on with our signature style series, there are two creative minds behind the interior design house of Parker Kennedy. Lance Jackson and David Eckton embody modern and quirky, something we can really get behind. Their work has been featured in multiple publications, and now they’re sharing their signature style secrets with us (questions answered by Lance).
EMc: Why do these photos show your signature style? What aspects really tell us who you are?
PK: We design traditional interiors with a fresh approach by adding colors and textures to take it to a new current level. Color, bamboo and Chinoiserie are usually big aspects of our design work.
EMc: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?
PK: When we design we always have some pop of color with a nood to chinoiserie or bamboo. When we entertain we always have our dining table set with vintage and new patterns mixed using color and chinoiseries with touch of some form bamboo on the table.
EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?
PK: My personal definition of personal style is having a trade mark look that carries over into all aspects or your design and life. For us it is when someone walks into an interior we have designed and they know its a Parker Kennedy Living room.
EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?
PK: Classic, Color and Confidence – I selected those three words because we are always looking at interiors making them a fresh classic with color and we have the confidence to do it.
EMc: What are three of your most prized pieces that you think fully represent your signature style? This could be a piece of furniture, jewelry, art, etc.
PK: 1) My white vintage chinoiserie fretwork dining table with a mirrored inset top. 2) My vintage gold bamboo flatware. 3) My master bedroom Thibaut Drapes and custom pagoda cornice boards.
EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?
PK: Search deep on what makes you happy and saturate yourself with it in all visual aspects of your life.
