Editorial Reviews

Review

"As one who can be found travelling around the world in search of amazing textiles, I appreciate those who reference culture innovatively and cerebrally in design. Jeanine’s designs are authentic in that she maintains a distinct formula of fusing cultural references with urban style. Her book, Remix, shows you how to have fun with textiles and objects, which is the point of it all at the end of the day."--John Robshaw, author of John Robshaw Prints: Textiles, Block Printing, Global Inspiration, and Interiors

“Jeanine and Bryan are experts on giving ultra-modern rooms cultural flavor. (Their wallpaper has even found a place in one of my favorite rooms!) In Remix this lovely couple has gone the extra mile, giving us the stories behind the interesting objects and cool textiles that are in all of our favorite stores. This book is a must-have for knowing how to make your space an authentic reflection of you. Better yet, it’s a beautiful, irresistible object that you’ll want to display on your coffee table.”
--Emily Henderson, TV host and Designer of HGTV’s Secrets from a Stylist and blogger, StyleByEmilyHenderson.com

"Aficionados of color, pattern and style--and who isn't?--will LOVE Remix! Here are TONS of inspiring ideas to add personality and pizazz to your home."
--Elaine Griffin, author of Design Rules: The Insider's Guide to Becoming Your Own Decorator

A beautiful book that even my husband (who doesn't care about decorating) liked for the ideas to infuse our environment with our African culture.

This book is wonderful. I loved this book and would describe it as being inspiring, tasteful, stylish, elegant, creative and fresh. I love decorating books and this book can hold it's own. Although I loved the art featured in the homes; being a lover of original art; I wish more art had been included. Please do another book showcasing more homeowners with extensive art collections. This book was also an interesting read. The resource guide was excellent.

I love soul music. I love black culture. I love global and bohemian style. I love all things decor. This book touches and blends all of those elements together and displays it in such a beautiful way! I'm so happy I discovered AphroChic on Pinterest because I don't know if I would've learned of this book otherwise. If you're looking for a coffee table book for your home and you also need design inspiration this is a great choice! Its so dope! Its so phresh! I can't say enough about it! It already has a spot reserved on my coffee table right next to Gordon Parks.

Format: Hardcover
Our homes are the most important space in our lives, it is where we eat, love, and sleep and is the one place where we can go to recharge to take on the challenges of life.
Bloggers Jeanine Hays and Bryan Mason have been writing about fusing our individual ethnic heritage into the world around us. Taking a page from the music world “remix”, these two are applying it to design. There approach to decorating has been coined as “aphro chic”.
In a lecture during their visit to the Room and Board Furnishing store in Atlanta, Jeanine Hays shared her approach to design. She emphasize how important it was to use our “lens” and take color, furnishings, and build a bridge between culture and our home or workspace. They had several mock up designs that they had put together. They were very inviting and balanced.
In the book, Remix, it first of has a unique texture and the yellow bright color draws you to open it. It is broken down into two parts, Elements and Modern Soulful Homes.
In part one, Elements, the book takes you step by step to understand the culture of color, patters, and art. How to incorporate global objects to tell your story even with a few musical tunes in your space.
In part two, Modern Soulful Homes, the book peeks inside the homes of five couples and does a thorough analysis and shares what works for each.
The book is full of color, recommended places to find the objects in the photographs and overall will give you a helpful understanding of the aphro chic approach.
I really love this book because it is perfect to use as a reference or simply thumb through and be reminded of the beauty of modern simplicity.
There is a forward by Danielle Colding, the host of HGTV’s Shop this Room, that flatters the global perspective inside the local use in homes.
Remix will allow you to take risk and express yourself with bold color, culture, objects, with a bit of soul.

What a wonderful, delightful book! The vignettes show how the authors create these innovative and comfortable living spaces. I like the afrocentric focus and their use of wallpaper. Check out their wallpaper and especially those pillows. I have the one with the woman in afro silhouette.
