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!

Gorgeous Greens

{  s h a d e s   o f   g r e e n  }

With St. Paddy's day only a couple of days away, we thought it would be a great time to celebrate one of nature's favorite hues: GREEN! From mint to emerald, sage to moss, and everything in between, the many shades of green always seem to be beautifully calming.

Here are a few green beauties we currently have in the showroom!

Portico Ad Photo Shoot Outtakes!

We had such a blast this morning at a little photo shoot for a joint Portico Jackson Magazine ad coming out in the next issue!

We're teaming up with Hemline Ridgeland, View Gallery, and Arco Avenue on a collaborative ad about style of all mediums at The Township!

photo shoot fun!

The great art is a Paul Edelstein painting from View Gallery, the clothes are from Hemline, all the killer shoes and bags are from Arco, and the furniture is, of course, SummerHouse! Here are a few outtakes from the shoot. Stay tuned for the full ad once we have the winning photo selected and all "prettied up!" :)

Kelly Wearstler for Groundworks

Most of us up here are pretty big fans of (okay, some of us are completely obsessed with!) the one and only Kelly Wearstler. Her style is absolutely magnetic, both in fashion and interiors!

We have been so in love with the newest collection she did with Groundwords for Lee Jofa that we had to share some highlights!

Kelly Wearstler for Lee Jofa

A little about this collection:

"In her second collaboration with Groundworks, Kelly Wearstler has created a vibrant and inspiring fabric collection that combines her love for natural materials, graphic patterns and unique colors. The collection features organic and textural designs that are quietly elegant, as well as the bold prints that have become a Kelly Wearstler signature."

We love her go-to color palette. It's always really different, but it just plain works. That's why she's so good!

We've always been huge fans of the Birds and Landscapes/Seascapes! We're pretty crazy about the Acryllic birds and the Abstracts, too, since those are new for Lauren. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

Project Inspiration + Happy Birthday Todd!

Designer (and birthday boy!) Todd Prince has a beautiful project in the works that we cannot wait to see completed!!
We wanted to share a peek at the painting that inspired Todd and his client's direction for this little girl's room.

This painting by Paul Edelstein (whose work is represented at View Gallery just a few doors down from us!) is filled with amazing color that we just can't help but get inspired by!

On another note, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODD!
Happy birthday Todd!

We all got to celebrate with some delicious Gigi's Cupcakes :)

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Why We Love Blue and White

Lately we've been smitten with one of the most classic color combinations of all time: Blue and White. From creamy white to stark white, and from turquoise blue to a soft icy blue, these shades always seem to mix just perfectly!

We have a good blue+white showing on our floor right now, so here are a few of our favorite instances of this stunning duo!
