Neutrals + Blues

Last week we talked about how busy Todd and Tina have been lately with several big projects, and we're here to share the second of the two big installs they've had recently! (If you missed the blog post about their big outdoor install, check it out here!)

This install isn't 100% done, but it's looking so great that we couldn't help but share a few photos! We'll have more in the near future when all of the finishing touches have been added!

Designer Todd Prince says he loved working on this home and helping create a relaxing, inviting atmosphere with his selections. The foyer is beautifully detailed with a piece of art from View Gallery and a completely custom entry table. (Todd had the table built, the skirt custom made, and the custom stencil applied!)

Lastly, we bring you the master bedroom! This cozy, restful, spa-like retreat was created to be a get-away from everyday life. The custom bedding, Kerry Joyce pillows and Mr. Brown lamps beautifully accent the Vanguard uphostered headboard the Compendium Vanguard side tables.

Who wouldn't feel relaxed in this home?! Great work Todd. You nailed it, yet again!

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...

"Home Away From Home" Master Bedroom Design

Lisa and Elish have a beautiful ongoing project with a very dear client who lives in a fantastic Fondren home, and the master bedroom in this home has recently been completed!

Fondren Residence by Lisa Palmer | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS

Lisa on this bedroom:

"When I first met with my client, the first thing I noticed about this room was that the original furnishings were out of scale. The bed was too small for the space, the side tables were too small, and the rug was too small. So my challenge was to make sure that the pieces I selected would fit in this very large room with large walls and tall ceilings."

Fondren Residence by Lisa Palmer | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS

"My client wanted a sitting area where they could watch television, but they also wanted to be able to watch television from their bed, so I had that challenge too."

Fondren Residence by Lisa Palmer | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS

"The client wanted the bedroom to be a "home away from home." My design approach was to make it light and airy and soft so I chose fabrics that were a mixture of natural linen, velvet, and even a washable velvet on the swivel chairs and ottoman in the sitting area. When you're going white on upholstery, that kind of thing is important!"

"There's a lot of custom work in this space as well. The bed, the etagere, the desk, and the side tables were all custom made. In fact, the desk was touched by four different artisans!"

"There was some renovation in the space as well. We changed an old, low cased archway by raising it and adding old beams. We redesigned the fireplace, mantle, and stonework to give it a fresh look. And we repainted all the walls."

Why We Love Blue and White

Lately we've been smitten with one of the most classic color combinations of all time: Blue and White. From creamy white to stark white, and from turquoise blue to a soft icy blue, these shades always seem to mix just perfectly!

We have a good blue+white showing on our floor right now, so here are a few of our favorite instances of this stunning duo!
