on a personal note: that's me

Name: Jalon Burton


Occupation: Interior Stylist
Owner and Project Manager of It Can Be Arranged Interior Design and Consulting

Owner of It Can Be Arranged Home Furnishings and Design boutiques


I love the holidays:
When I was little, my favorite time of year was Christmas.  That's the time of year I remember my whole family filling our home with laughter, fun, wonderful smells, decorations, foods and love.
Now that I am older, I still love a FULL house throughout the holidays.  I overindulge myself with holiday décor, sweets, and festivities.


I am always travel ready:
I have spent a large percentage of my life traveling the world. I love all the experiences and ideas from the décor, food, clothing, etc. that seem to jump right out at me everywhere I go. I keep my travel bag packed at all times.   


I have a soft spot for movies (and television shows) that offer beautiful home settings: 
I have a shelf full of videos that are great dream home movies… the film itself might not be the best – but I could move into the ‘set home’ in a second!

A few of my favorite homes (but not necessarily favorite movies) are:
Father of the Bride
The Holiday
Something's Gotta Give
Home Alone
The Blind Side
Mr. & Mrs. Smith
The Family Stone
Marley & Me
The Nanny Diaries
What Lies Beneath
Under the Tuscan Sun
What About Bob?

A special thanks to Hooked on Houses and Moviefone for these links

I could go on and on and on and on…  I’ve actually watched movies and couldn’t tell you the plot or who were the characters, but I could tell you the exact layout and decor of the room in a scene.

All in the Family:
Family is the center of my life.  We have developed beautiful family traditions over the years.  My children are my true trophies of life.  I am so proud of them. Whether we are together through good times or bad times, my family gives me the strength and happiness that makes my life complete.

I am a traditionalist:  
My own personal favorite décor is traditional with a strong emphasis on casual (quite obvious from the ‘great dream home’ movie list above!).  I am really an old fashion girl when it comes to my home. One of the biggest compliments I can receive is when someone enters my home (or a client's home) and says that they feel right at home.

Well...that's me.
