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.

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!!

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!

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!

Overall, the team says the trends they noticed were things they see fitting in really nicely into SummerHouse designs!

{  Blush / Soft Purple Undertones  }

{  Limestone  }

{  Tall Lamps  }

{  Return to Refined Interior Elements  }

Do you have a favorite trend you're excited to see more of in the near future?

Welcome To The Jungle

Designer Elizabeth Gullett and her fabulous assistat Patricia Robbins completed the install of a cute little boy's room last week that we are dying to share with you!

Keep in mind, this is only a peek at the room, as the room dweller was very excited about his new hang out space and wasn't in the mood to let us take a whole bunch of pictures!

Elizabeth was told by the boy's parents that they wanted there to be a little bit of a theme in the room, and that it had to be kid friendly (of course!), so Elizabeth went with a loose jungle theme!

It turned out beautifully, and is the perfect combo of little boy + clean, timeless design.
