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!

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

A Beachy Before + After

How about a great BEFORE + AFTER to get you through the rest of the day?

SummerHouse Designer Elizabeth Gullett was approached by a client who was in need of a bedroom update.
This client was in love with a particular bedroom pictured in Coastal Living and asked for Elizabeth's help in giving her bedroom a similar feel.

[caption id="attachment_779" align="aligncenter" width="350"]BEFORE BEFORE[/caption]

Elizabeth says, "The feeling in that picture was great. It was the exact feeling we wanted to achieve-- fresh and beachy and clean. But the client's house is very refined with lots of antiques. If we did the same look in the picture, it wouldn't have flowed with the rest of her house. We took the feeling in the picture and made it applicable to her home."

The client, whose home is located in the beautiful Annandale neighborhood of Madison, said the project turned out even prettier than the picture! She was so happy, which of course left Elizabeth with a huge smile on her face!

One Fine Light Fixture

The Chestnut Hill Designer Show House is coming together!Lisa, Elish, and Marty plan to spend a good amount of time out there tomorrow working on getting things in order, but for now, here's a little peek at one of our favorite elements of the family room!

This light fixture was made to Lisa's specifications and it's absolutely breath-taking! This light fixture alone is reason enough to go to the show house this weekend!
