j. ellen Design makes NH Home Magazine

NH Home Magazine Cover September-October 2017

We were thrilled to see one of our projects gracing the cover of NH Home Magazine for September-October 2017. (Of course Heather, the Boston Terrier totally steals the show!!) We had a wonderful time working with the Bossi family to design their beautiful new home in Bedford, New Hampshire. Be sure to pick up a copy on your local newsstand and see some of the highlights in this beautiful custom kitchen featuring cabinetry by Young Furniture Mfg., Inc.

June Trisciani, of j. ellen Design in Manchester, forged a strong working relationship with Susan and Don Bossi not long after they hired her to design the interiors of their Bedford home. The journey started with a trip to Connecticut, where the Bossis lived at the time, to spend a day with the couple. “I wanted to know more about how they lived and what they loved about their home,” Trisciani says. “I also wanted to know what they wanted to do differently when building their new home.”

You can check out this issue right on the NH Home Magazine website.

Changes and Flowers…

As everyone knows, change happens. That being said, I will remind you all that change is good! We all know the saying… ‘when one door closes, another opens…’ At j. ellen Design, we have made major changes for 2017 to shake up the studio. In addition to updating and introducing product lines, we have redesigned the studio and are thrilled to announce that Guylaine Ostrander, the owner and creative genius behind All Silk Designs has joined our design team.

Silk Flower Arrangement

Let’s face it, not all of us (me included) are good with keeping plants alive and trying to maintain beautiful flowers can be costly and time consuming. Wouldn’t it be nice if flowers would just appear, always look fresh and your plants were always green and beautiful?? All Silk Designs offers the most realistic silk floral arrangements and plants we have ever seen! The most amazing part of this is you can purchase arrangements right from one of our displays or schedule an appointment with Guylaine to talk about creating something special just for you.

Red Silk Flower ArrangementNot sure you want the same arrangement day after day? Don’t have space to store arrangements? Explore the All Silk Designs rental programs. Whether you are looking to freshen up your home or office on a monthly or quarterly basis, the rental program is a great way to keep everything fresh and new by swapping out your arrangements for the holiday or season.

Have you ever wanted to learn the art of floral arranging? Part of our renovation was undertaken to create more open spaces for Guylaine to share her knowledge and offer a series of floral arranging classes. This is great way to add your own touch to an arrangement while meeting new friends and enjoying a glass of wine!

At j. ellen Design, we pride ourselves in creating a one-stop shopping experience for all of our clients. Adding this new element brings us another step closer to helping you add all of the finishing touches to make your space a home.

With j. ellen Design, B Burton Custom Décor and All Silk Designs, we’ve got you covered! Call today to schedule an appointment to learn about all of our offerings… and stay tuned for news on our upcoming spring open house to share what we have been up to!
