Coming Soon!

In an upcoming issue of the fabulous magazine Social South, one of designer Elizabeth Gullett's projects will be featured! It was photographed over the weekend in Santa Rosa Beach by the talented Allison Muirhead. The home is filled with natural light, blues and whites, linens and other soft fabrics, and just a relaxed yet elegant feel.

It's going to be a beautiful spread, so keep your eyes peeled!

Outdoor Oasis

Designer Todd Prince and his lovely assistant Tina had quite a busy week last week! They had two major installs, both of which we're excited to tell you about! One was interior and one was exterior, so today we're sharing the exterior one! With the lovely weather we had over the weekend, it just seems appropriate to keep up the spirit of outdoor entertaining...

This beautiful outdoor oasis is open, breezy, and (of course) weather proof! Todd picked all of the furniture from a couple of our favorite outdoor lines: Lee Industries and Summer Classics. It all blends together so perfectly!

All of the custom detail (like the custom banding on the bottom of the dining chairs, and the specially made drapery hardware) make this space interesting and personal as well as beautiful.

Gorgeous outdoor fabrics from Perennials (notice the contrast fabrics on the white arm chairs!), Nomi, Donghia, and Dedar add just the perfect amount of color and texture...

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!

Tranquil Retreat in Delta Magazine

Our very own Elizabeth Gullett was featured in the latest issue of Delta Magazine! This tranquil retreat out in Brandon has a very beachy feel, specifically designed by Elizabeth to compliment the home's location on the water! When we went out for this shoot, we really did feel like we were on vacation when really we were only minutes from home!

You may remember seeing a few behind-the-scenes shots in this blog post from a few weeks back.

Now, we give you... The actual spread!

The Mason Dixon: What It Is & Where To Get One

With our big Barry Dixon event only a week away, we figure it's time to start letting y'all in on some of the details!
Along with the help of our friends and neighbors at Calistoga Wine, we have come up with a signature cocktail for the event
and we're calling it The Mason Dixon.

The Mason Dixon Signature Cocktail for the May 9th Barry Dixon event at SummerHouse | Ridgeland, MS

The Mason Dixon is a spirited sipper with a mix of delicious personalities like rosemary, lemon, and cucumber...
Sounds just right for a warm southern night, doesn't it?! Come try one on May 9th at SummerHouse from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.,
and bring a little appetite with you as well! Award-winning chef Derek Emerson from Walker's and Local 463 is doing the food. Try Braised Pork Belly and Cheddar Biscuits on for size... Yeah, this event is not to be missed!
WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT THURSDAY! 

Welcome To The Jungle

Designer Elizabeth Gullett and her fabulous assistat Patricia Robbins completed the install of a cute little boy's room last week that we are dying to share with you!

Keep in mind, this is only a peek at the room, as the room dweller was very excited about his new hang out space and wasn't in the mood to let us take a whole bunch of pictures!

Elizabeth was told by the boy's parents that they wanted there to be a little bit of a theme in the room, and that it had to be kid friendly (of course!), so Elizabeth went with a loose jungle theme!

It turned out beautifully, and is the perfect combo of little boy + clean, timeless design.

Meet New Designer Casey Jenkins!

SummerHouse Designer Casey JenkinsSummerHouse Interior Designer Casey Jenkins is brand new to our little family up here and she's doing a great job of fitting right in!

We've loved getting to know her, so now is your turn to learn all about Casey with this little Q&A!

Q: Tell us a little about yourself! Where you're from, where you went to school, what you majored in...

A: I grew up in Brandon, MS in a home my mom designed and dad built! I attended Mississippi State University, majored in Interior Design, and was a Chi Omega! Go STATE!

Q: When did you first realize that you wanted to be an interior designer?

A: Growing up I always knew I enjoyed the idea of having my own business one day, and in fact, it took a year of classes in General Business to realize my love was Interior Design! After touring the studio I transferred and squeezed 4 years of design in 3! Absolutely love what I do!

Q: We hear you have some four-legged friends running around at your house! Tell us about them! :)

A: The divas are Millie Mae (too cool for anybody!) , Mollie Moo (we aren't even sure what she is?), and Little Bit (our main most diva)!

Q: What is your favorite thing do on a day or weekend off?

A: I absolutely LOVE to travel! Colorado last week to hit the slopes and D.C. next weekend for Ball on the Mall! When I am home, I crank up the push lawn mower and absolutely love edging my yard?! No really. Anything outdoors!

Q: What's the best movie you've seen recently?

A: Olympus Has Fallen! Gave me nightmares and I believe I was fighting off terrorists that night in my sleep. Gerald Butler was an amazing actor! Proud to be an American.

Q: Where is the coolest/best/most awesome place you've ever visited?

A: To this day, the cruise to Alaska we took as a family has remained to be one of my fondest memories. Words simply can not describe seeing enormous glaciers falling into the ocean, the wildlife, and swimming in heated pools in the middle of icey waters!

Q: In your short time here so far, have you developed any major crushes on any pieces on the showroom floor?!

A: Easy question! I am in love with Barry Dixon's antique screens displayed so beautiful! Looking forward to having him here with us May 9th!

[{ Find out more on our upcoming Barry Dixon event here! }]

Q: How would you describe your personal style as far as interiors?

A: Hard to narrow down, but generally speaking, I love layers! Depending on the client's space, I enjoy keeping things clean but cozy! Todd Prince would laugh, but I tend to over use the word "transitional".

Q: What's an interesting fact about you that your co-workers may not know about you yet?! :)

A: I did competitive swimming for 8 years and traveled most of the Southeast for weekly competitions! It taught me a lot of self discipline and time management. I love the friendships I have to this day from those interactions!
