To continue our Black History Month series, we spoke with Atlanta interior designer Jack Poles. His background in floral design and retail merchandising created a love of wallpaper that led him to start Wallpaper Your World, a boutique wallpaper store that offers traditional, trendy and eco-friendly options. Read on to see what Jack has to say about his love of wallpaper and Palm Beach.

Which African-American designers influenced you?
Starting out, I didn’t have an African-American designer to influence me. That void inspired me to pursue my dream, which was creating a name for myself so that I may inspire African-American and young designers.

What’s your favorite design style?
My favorite design style is traditional with a twist.

 What’s the essential home accessory (or piece of furniture) you use in your designs?
I love to use wallpaper. I think it really enhances the feeling of the room, much better than plain paint. I also like to throw in a hint of leopard print to add a little bit of fun to the room.

 What’s your favorite vacation spot?
I love to travel all over, but one of my favorite places to visit is Palm Beach, FL. I like it because there are so many beautiful homes and so many great shops that are geared towards designers.

Show us a picture of the room you most enjoyed designing.
I loved designing this vacation home in Palm Beach, FL.

    yay for jack! i'm loving the talent! (as a side note, it's great that you have a section for 'talented african american designers', but shouldn't jack just be included in the 'talented designers section?'. just a thought.)

  3. HMR says:

    I agree with Kate. I will be glad when we can move to just being great without having to include one's race or ethnicity.

    When African American designers are as widely celebrated and recognized as designers of Caucasian descent, a separate category won't be needed. Until then, the spotlight is necessary. Jack's inspiration was the dearth of African American designers to emulate when he got started. This spotlight seems to finally fill that void.

    Everything about Mr. Poles, screams creative, artistic, talented, innovative, courageous, and simply divine.

    Looking forward to seeing more publicity on this professional.

    sincerely, Miss Venccetti.
