The Gold Standard

Have you seen the latest issue of LonnyMag? It went live a little over a week ago and we simply cannot get enough!! (We won't tell you how many times we've flipped through the pages... What a gorgeous magazine!)

One of our favorite parts about this particular issue is their story about Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams! The title of this EIGHT PAGE spread is The Gold Standard. If you didn't already love the MGBW products, this will make you appreciate their furniture on a deeper level. Give it a once-over!

Creepy Chic

In honor of Halloween (which is only a couple of days away... How did it get here so fast!?), we've put together a small collection of Creepy Chic rooms, decorated with unconventional or just downright creepy art and accessories.

Skulls on the wall? Creepy art over the bed? (Maybe in the living room, yeah, but right over your head as you sleep at night? A little scary!) These designers know just how to incorporate these into a livable space without seeming terribly frightening! (Photos collected from Lonny and Rue)

A skull sits right there on the table between those two chairs. This family must not have any kids!
Not only does this artwork have a slightly scary flair to it, but that hand on the cocktail table could really creep a girl out!
Such a beautiful, serene room. Then you notice the eyeball in the piece of art on the right! Wow...
Skulls in the bookshelf
Skulls on the wall... This skull is actually pretty cool and funky!
Try falling asleep at night with this crazy lady hanging over your head.... NOOO THANK YOU!

Got some other good photos we could add to our collection? Post them on our Facebook wall and you just might win a fun prize! We wish you a Creepy Chic Halloween!! Be careful out there this weekend!

Shelf Help

Let's face it. We could all use a little help when arranging our bookshelves. Books, trinkets, pieces of art, sculptures, pottery, etc.... How can you make it all work? We searched the pages of some of our favorite reads to bring you a little "shelf help!"

All of these photos came from Rue, Lonny, and the Domino book. We love how these designers have used outside-the-box ideas to make things like butterfly collections and big boxes fit into the scheme! The designers at SummerHouse are all PROS at bookshelf arrangement, so if you need help, you know who to call! :)

SummerHouse Loves Lonny

The new Lonny Magazine is live! We are so excited, as we are every time a new issue surfaces! :)  The only complaint we have about this issue is that it ended TOO SOON! Just as we were getting all of these amazing ideas, the click of the mouse took us no further... Oh well, thankfully it is Friday!

Here are a few snippets that particularly captured our attention...

1.  The Mottega feature. This line of lamps is brand new and we are the exclusive dealer for the area! We have lots in stock that you MUST see in person! Mottega makes a fine lamp...

2. Befores and Afters.  Yall know we love a good before and after.  This issue has several before-good-accessorizing/after-good-accessorizing projects! 

3.  Friendly Fashion. The beautiful Stella McCartney shines as an eco-friendly and PETA-friendly designer.  Her shop, in addition to her clothing, is absolutely gorgeous!

4. Blending Old and New.  In the South, we know all about the value of an antique or family heirloom.  Incorporating them into a more updated interior can sometimes be tricky.  We love how this designer blended old with new!

5.  Unconventional use of wallpaper.  We are SO glad that wallpaper has made such a strong comeback! The ways these wallpapers were used (run horizontally instead of vertically, and used only on the ceiling) are very inspiring!

6. Flatscreen Creativity. This flatscreen TV is positioned amongst art to look like it really has a purpose! We love the idea of placing a sleek television in the midst of sleek art.  Brilliant!

7.  The Serenity of White. Question:  What is SummerHouse's favorite color? Answer: White!! It ALWAYS looks good.  We will admit it is not always functional, but it sure is beautiful.  Case in point, right here:

8. SHOES and a cute puppy!  Enough said. Happy weekend!

For Your Sweet Tooth!

In flipping through LonnyMag, we came across a recipe that looked good and sounded GREAT! Laurel said she plans to try making these this weekend! (Diet? What diet?) We'll give you a report on how they turn out! Here is the recipe that has us so enticed...
