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...

{ happy valentine's day }

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you! We love this holiday because someone usually brings cupcakes and/or candy, someone usually brings elementary school Valentine's cards (which take us back to the good ol' days), and someone usually gets flowers from a sweet boyfriend/husband (which we all can enjoy!)

Another reason we love this holiday is because we're reminded of just how beautiful and versatile pinks, corals, and reds can be! We picked a few Schumacher fabrics (from many collections) showcasing just why we love the colors of love.

Enjoy today!
Tell someone you love them!
And do something nice for someone!
That's a sure-fire way to make your Valentine's Day the best possible! Oh, and when you get blue, just re-visit this post for a little happiness and warmth from these pretty fabrics! :)

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.
