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]

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!

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!

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.

"Home Away From Home" Master Bedroom Design

Lisa and Elish have a beautiful ongoing project with a very dear client who lives in a fantastic Fondren home, and the master bedroom in this home has recently been completed!

Fondren Residence by Lisa Palmer | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS

Lisa on this bedroom:

"When I first met with my client, the first thing I noticed about this room was that the original furnishings were out of scale. The bed was too small for the space, the side tables were too small, and the rug was too small. So my challenge was to make sure that the pieces I selected would fit in this very large room with large walls and tall ceilings."

Fondren Residence by Lisa Palmer | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS

"My client wanted a sitting area where they could watch television, but they also wanted to be able to watch television from their bed, so I had that challenge too."

Fondren Residence by Lisa Palmer | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS

"The client wanted the bedroom to be a "home away from home." My design approach was to make it light and airy and soft so I chose fabrics that were a mixture of natural linen, velvet, and even a washable velvet on the swivel chairs and ottoman in the sitting area. When you're going white on upholstery, that kind of thing is important!"

Fondren Residence by Lisa Palmer | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS

"There's a lot of custom work in this space as well. The bed, the etagere, the desk, and the side tables were all custom made. In fact, the desk was touched by four different artisans!"

"There was some renovation in the space as well. We changed an old, low cased archway by raising it and adding old beams. We redesigned the fireplace, mantle, and stonework to give it a fresh look. And we repainted all the walls."
