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!

High Point Market Recap!

We sent a team to High Point Market last week to scope out the latest in furniture and home decor trends, and the report they came back with was outstanding!

Marty, Lisa, Todd, and Elizabeth got some amazing new furnishings for the showroom floor, but since we don't have any of them yet, they also brought back literally hundreds of pictures for us to see so the rest of us could feel like we were there.

Since we couldn't put all of their pictures up, here are a few of the highlights!

Lisa, what is your favorite....

[caption id="attachment_3300" align="alignright" width="130" caption="Essie Chinchilly. Gorgeous!"]Essie Chinchilly[/caption]

Perfume? CK Be.  It's unisex! My husband and I both use it. It's been my fragrance for 15 years.

Nail Color? Right now I'm obsessed with Essie's Chinchilly.

[caption id="attachment_3306" align="alignleft" width="120" caption="Pratt and Lambert Chanteuse 25-27"][/caption]

Wall Color? Pratt and Lambert Chanteuse 25-27 It's a blue-gray hue. It's beautiful with metallics and white and any saturated accent color.

Modern printed fabric? The new collection from No.9 Thompson by Jim Thompson has a print on an ivory texture named Bamboozle. It's a large scale jagged stripe that comes in several color combo's. I want to use it on a sofa or large window covering. LOVE IT!!

[caption id="attachment_3301" align="alignleft" width="210" caption="Bamboozle by Jim Thompson. Awesome fabric!"][/caption]

Blog you follow?  Besides Always Summer...I love Dolce Vita. I think I have a girl crush on Paloma Contreras!

[caption id="attachment_3302" align="alignright" width="192" caption="Cam is the BEST!"][/caption]

TV Show? I never miss Modern Family for a good laugh, (Isn't Cam the greatest!)  and The Housewives of Atlanta is my guilty pleasure! sssshhh...don't tell anyone!

Fall Fashion Trend? Black suede booties. I can't live without them!

Favorite piece in the SummerHouse showroom right now? Artesia Beatrice Cabinet in White Wash. It's modern and earthy at the same time and it's all about the details on this one! I'd put it in a living space flanked by tall white slipcovered covered chairs. Instant gorgeous!!
