Coming Soon!

In an upcoming issue of the fabulous magazine Social South, one of designer Elizabeth Gullett's projects will be featured! It was photographed over the weekend in Santa Rosa Beach by the talented Allison Muirhead. The home is filled with natural light, blues and whites, linens and other soft fabrics, and just a relaxed yet elegant feel.

It's going to be a beautiful spread, so keep your eyes peeled!

Neutrals + Blues

Last week we talked about how busy Todd and Tina have been lately with several big projects, and we're here to share the second of the two big installs they've had recently! (If you missed the blog post about their big outdoor install, check it out here!)

This install isn't 100% done, but it's looking so great that we couldn't help but share a few photos! We'll have more in the near future when all of the finishing touches have been added!

Designer Todd Prince says he loved working on this home and helping create a relaxing, inviting atmosphere with his selections. The foyer is beautifully detailed with a piece of art from View Gallery and a completely custom entry table. (Todd had the table built, the skirt custom made, and the custom stencil applied!)

Lastly, we bring you the master bedroom! This cozy, restful, spa-like retreat was created to be a get-away from everyday life. The custom bedding, Kerry Joyce pillows and Mr. Brown lamps beautifully accent the Vanguard uphostered headboard the Compendium Vanguard side tables.

Who wouldn't feel relaxed in this home?! Great work Todd. You nailed it, yet again!

More Gorgeousness

You might remember the teaser we shared last week about the home that hosted the photo shoot for the Mistletoe Marketplace steering committee! Well, we're here to deliver on our promise of more photos from this stunning residence designed by our very own Lisa Palmer... Are you ready?!

Ladies and gentlemen... Feast your eyes!

When Lisa first started on this project, the house had not been updated in about 20 years. It was beautifully done, but it was a lot of bright color and pattern, and the client wanted something lighter and softer.

"We started with rugs from NOLA Rugs in New Orleans and went from there." says Lisa. "We worked with some of her antique pieces and added new pieces that will be future antiques for her."

The painting in the dining room was a commission of the client's cousin Martha Rea Baker from Santa Fe. Lisa worked closely with Baker on this piece, which turned out beautifully.

Working in the sun room was a bit of a challenge, but Lisa was able to overcome all obstacles and make this room absolutely fabulous! "It was important to the client that they had an unincumbered view of the lake. It was a challenge because there was a television and not much wall," says Lisa.

[caption id="attachment_2530" align="aligncenter" width="550"]Eastover Residence // designed by Lisa Palmer // SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS It's easy to see why the client insisted on having a clear view. This lake is SO pretty![/caption]

B. Viz Pillow // SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS

Lisa says, "The only thing we worked with in the bedroom was the rug. Then we found that beautiful B Viz pillow! She really wanted that room to be a respite where she could really relax."

Overall, Lisa says she loves working with homes that have a lot of history and personality. "And not only did this home have history and personality, but my client has a long history in the community and LOTS of personality! I love working with her," Lisa says.

We say, job well done!!

Outdoor Oasis

Designer Todd Prince and his lovely assistant Tina had quite a busy week last week! They had two major installs, both of which we're excited to tell you about! One was interior and one was exterior, so today we're sharing the exterior one! With the lovely weather we had over the weekend, it just seems appropriate to keep up the spirit of outdoor entertaining...

This beautiful outdoor oasis is open, breezy, and (of course) weather proof! Todd picked all of the furniture from a couple of our favorite outdoor lines: Lee Industries and Summer Classics. It all blends together so perfectly!

All of the custom detail (like the custom banding on the bottom of the dining chairs, and the specially made drapery hardware) make this space interesting and personal as well as beautiful.

Photo Shoot at a Pretty House

Yesterday, we had a great time at a dear client's beautiful home getting set up for a photo shoot for the Mistletoe Marketplace Steering Committee!

Residence designed by SummerHouse // Ridgeland, MS

Talented photographer Allison Muirhead got some great shots of the fun Junior League gals (and talking to all of them got us excited about Mistletoe Marketplace even though it's not until November!)

While the photo session was going on, we walked around the rest of the house and snapped a few shots of this GORGEOUS home. Here are a few teasers... More photos to come in the very near future!

Tranquil Retreat in Delta Magazine

Our very own Elizabeth Gullett was featured in the latest issue of Delta Magazine! This tranquil retreat out in Brandon has a very beachy feel, specifically designed by Elizabeth to compliment the home's location on the water! When we went out for this shoot, we really did feel like we were on vacation when really we were only minutes from home!

You may remember seeing a few behind-the-scenes shots in this blog post from a few weeks back.

Now, we give you... The actual spread!

The showroom looks stunning.

Our staff had a blast over dinner last night with the wildly entertaining Barry Dixon.

We are absolutely THRILLED that today is here! As Lisa mentioned on Facebook this morning,
she (as well as the rest of us) are "truly honored and humbled to have him."

We hope to see you tonight as we host Barry and hear about his exciting adventures in the  world of design!
We promise you'll have a great time and you'll be thoroughly entertained!

Doors open at 5:00 and the fun goes on until 8:00!
