Happy Birthday, Marty!

Happy happy birthday to our sweet, dear, wonderful Marty Smith!

Marty wears a thousand hats around here and we are so thankful for all she does to keep us in order! She's our business manager + showroom merchandiser + event planner + so many other things and SummerHouse absolutely could not run without her!

To celebrate, we had a few Gigi's cupcakes from our Township neighbor! :)

Happy Birthday Marty!

We love you Marty! Hope your birthday is the best!

Color For The Outdoors

With spring approaching, we're starting to think about outdoor entertaining, backyard cookouts, and beautiful parties under the night sky! Outdoor furniture accented with acryllic outdoor fabrics, which can handle weather and sun exposure, take a space from okay to outstanding!

Designer Trina Turk collaborated with Schumacher on a whimsical, brightly colored indoor/outdoor collection that we love!

Trina Turk Outdoor Fabrics available at SummerHouse | Rigeland, MS

Here are a few patterns that have grabbed our attention in the past...

Outdoor Oasis Sneek Peek

Last week, designer Todd Prince completed a beautiful outdoor installation that has given all of us a serious case of spring fever! This is just a peek at the space, brimming with fantastic pieces.

The LEE Industries outdoor furniture is accented by custom iron side tables and custom drapery panels and hardware.And the Holly Hunt fabric used for the drapery is the perfect sheer for a restful outdoor space.

The fire screen, made by the same local craftsman who made the drapery hardware and tables, really makes this covered area special. And the LEE lounge chairs are too pretty for words!
It's the time of year to start thinking about getting your own outdoor space spruced up for the warmer weather that's just around the corner! Stay tuned for more pictures from this outdoor oasis, coming in the next few weeks, for inspiration!

Outdoor Living

Happy Monday to you! Since it's a little dreary in the metro area this morning, maybe this post will help combat the blues that today seems to be trying to give us. This beautiful outdoor living space inspires us every time we see it. The bright colors used in the accents, the painted brick wall, the Brown Jordan furniture, the outdoor shower, the beautiful plants... We love pretty much everything!

We hope you're having a wonderful summer!

Outdoor Living

The weather has been so beautiful lately! The daytime temperature has not reached an unbearable high yet, which we can all be thankful for, and the nighttime temperature has been almost perfect! Weather like this makes us all wish for a beautiful outdoor living space like this one.  This is a project Lisa recently completed that turned out SO well!  We know for a fact that the family this screened-in outdoor room belongs to has really been enjoying it! What a perfect place to entertain or throw a dinner for friends!

Drapery out of washable/bleachable outdoor fabric will be easy to clean. These can be thrown in the wash and re-hung! Easy as that!

These tall candle stands make such a statement in this empty corner.  At night when the candles are lit, they can be enjoyed from inside and outside of this room!

This driftwood table is perfect for an outdoor living space!

The perfect place to have a summer dinner party!

Loving Lavendar

We are loving the new edition of High Gloss Magazine! Have you seen it yet?  One of our favorite spreads is the lavendar and white home of L.A. based designer Mary McGee.  Her use of texture in the white-on-white design (with statement-making splashes of lavendar!) make the simple color story extremely interesting! She describes her home as "a glamourous treehouse."  That sounds like so much fun! Mary, can we come visit PLEASE?!

What room do you like the best? It is hard to choose a favorite!

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!

New Trina Turk Outdoor Fabrics!

We got an email this morning from Schumacher introducing the new Trina Turk outdoor fabrics and they are fabulous! We have had so much fun using the fabrics from her last introduction, so we are looking for ways to incorporate these into current projects!  Even though these are labeled as outdoor fabrics, we love using them inside, particularly for kids areas.  They clean with almost no effort at all!  You can view all colorways of these patterns here.
