Thank You, Mottega!

{ we are having the best friday ever! }

Not only is the weather gorgeous (for now), and our NOLA Rug Show going beautifully (more on that later today), but Mottega featured us on their blog! Mottega is a unique designer lamp company that actually allows you to design your very own lamp, from shape to color to base to shade... Each product they ship truly is one of a kind! And each product is truly stunning...

They did a designer spotlight with the one and only Lisa Palmer, which was such a fun interview to read!

Take a peek! :)

High Point Market Recap!

Just a couple of weeks ago, Marty, Elizabeth, and Beth made a trip to High Point, North Carolina for Fall Furniture Market! They came across some pretty fabulous finds... Here's a little peek into what you can expect to see at SummerHouse in the near future!

Perfect for young families (no hard edges) and anyone wanting to add some great texture and rustic charm to a room. We love to put these with natural linen slipcovered sofas and chairs, and they are one of a kind!"][/caption]

Behind the Scenes: Portico Photo Shoot

This morning we had so much fun with the ladies who are compiling the story for the next issue of Portico Jackson Magazine! Amanda Wells, a local journalist, and Daphne Nabors, local photographer, met us at our customers' home to chat about design!  Portico contacted us a couple of weeks ago requesting a green room to run in their March issue, so this is the first one that popped into mind!  Then we started thinking.... "Do they mean eco-friendly green or the color green?"  They did indeed mean the COLOR green, so we knew we had the perfect project for them to showcase!  As Daphe worked her magic behind the lens, Amanda talked to Lisa and the homeowner about the purpose and concept behind the beautiful design.  Here is a peek behind the scenes of the photo shoot.  We can't wait to see the finished project! :)

The art above the Clifton sectional is by Trevor, one of the many talented artists represented at View Gallery.  His color palette and style are always so much fun!

All of the fabrics you see here (minus the Adler throw) can be easily spot cleaned with soap and water.  How perfect for a kids' hangout room, right?!

Such a fun color scheme! This makes us want to be a kid all over again...

The orange Mottega lamp adds so much to the space. 

Fun Jonathan Adler accessories and books accent the whole room!

 This entertainment console (and the bookshelf, not pictured) are from a very cool and modern company called Blu Dot.  They make some great looking furniture!

Daphne and Lisa getting set up!
