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!

What you have to look forward to...

WOW.

That's all we can say about how GORGEOUS the showroom looks right now!
It has seriously never looked better. Marty is so good!

You're invited to come see the showroom in all it's beauty for yourself in an extra fun atmosphere tomorrow night at our Barry Dixon event! Here's what you have to look forward to... (Disclaimer: LOTS of gorgeousness lies ahead in the following photos!)

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!

A Comfortable and Elegant Before + After

We've got another fabulous Before + After for you guys today! Designer Elizabeth Gullett has successfully taken a room with great bones from lackluster to lust-worthy! Even though the finished product is fairly tonal, Elizabeth's combination of textures makes this room amazingly interesting!

But before you can see this beautiful room, take a look at the BEFORE photos:

Before designer Elizabeth Gullett worked her magic...

Before designer Elizabeth Gullett worked her magic...

See? Pretty room, just in need of some help! And that's where Elizabeth comes in...

The homeowner's style is elegant, rustic, and classic. This is her formal living room so she wanted to put a little more elegance into this room, all while maintaining warm approachability. She wanted people to think, "Oh what a beautiful room," but not be scared to sit in it.

Design by Elizabeth Gullett at SummerHouse | Ridgeland, MS

"We mixed an elegant velvet on the sofa with a seagrass rug. The mirrored coffee table also adds another dressy element," says Elizabeth.

But before any sample pulling began, Elizabeth found this gorgeous Carol Sneed painting, above the mantle, to use as her jumping off point. Elizabeth says, "We pulled the whole room together around this painting!"

Design by Elizabeth Gullett at SummerHouse | Ridgeland, MSElizabeth wanted everything in this room to be classic, without anything trendy, so this room would be beautiful for years and years. She and the homeowner, however, did include some ikat pillows on the sofa since that's one thing that can easily be switched out (should ikat  go out of style anytime soon!)

Design by Elizabeth Gullett at SummerHouse | Ridgeland, MS

Let's take a quick inventory of textures in this space:
Linen, silk, velvet, wood, glass, mirror, and seagrass. "Even though the colors are all pretty neutral, this room is super interesting because of all the texture," Elizabeth says about this great, comfortable, elegant formal living room.

JOB WELL DONE!
