At home with… Jeannette Andamasaris

Jeannette’s favorite room is her bedroom. “It’s visually relaxing for me with everything being mainly black and white (my favorite),” she said. “I have a wall covered with photos of family and favorite people, all things that make me smile when I first wake up. My favorite thing to do is curl up on the bed under the giant mosquito net and read. It’s the more grown-up version of my sheet tent from childhood.” Photo: Amanda Maglione Jeannette’s favorite room is her bedroom. “It’s visually relaxing for me with everything being mainly black and white (my favorite),” she said. “I have a wall covered with photos of family and favorite people, all things that make me smile when I first wake up.

Local designer Jeannette Andamasaris wasn’t always into design. In fact, when she graduated from Ohio University, she had a degree in Marine Biology. But traveling around the world as a dancer honed her interest in architecture and other cultures and, while working as a performance artist, she had the opportunity to get involved with the dance company’s set and costume fabrication. From there, Jeannette became the in-house interior coordinator for a design-build firm, a designer for a design-import company and later co-founded a tile and design showroom. In 2010, she started JAID Style, which, locally, counts Old Metropolitan Hall and Starr Hill Brewery’s tasting room among its clients. We asked Jeannette to share what she’s into right now.

What are you currently reading? I Married Adventure by Osa Johnson.

What are you listening to? I rotate heavily these days between The Smiths, Joao Gilberto, Angel Olsen and Porcelain Raft.

What are you watching on TV? “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

What are you eating/drinking lately? That’s hard! I love food and trying new things. But lately I can’t get enough roast chicken and Greek salad. Drinking is easy: Pastis.

What are you working on? I have a great mix of commercial and residential projects right now. I’m excited about a new restaurant that we are working on that is about to open on the Corner within the next month. I’m also eagerly anticipating construction to start on a building that I’ve designed with a dream client. We have zero creativity limits on this one, so it’s going to be a fun process.
