Designer of the Week: Katy Sanders

SummerHouse Designer of the Week Katy Sanders Every few weeks, we pick a different designer to feature as our designer of the week! It’s so much fun for us to really focus in on one designer at a time and see what they’ve been working on, what’s caught their eye, and where they turn for inspiration!

Our newest designer of the week is Katy Sanders! This girl has been working extra hard lately and has pulled together some beautiful rooms! Find out about what’s most inspired her lately, her favorite recent project, and much more! Keep reading!

Tell us about a few of your favorite details in a project you’re currently working on!

My latest project involved a complete living room design for a home in the Bridgewater subdivision. Having downsized to one main living area, my clients needed a comfortable, casual, user-friendly space. I chose slipcovered pieces, warm wood tones, and natural fibers.

Here’s a look at the final selections. We cannot wait for the install this fall!

SummerHouse Designer of the Week Katy Sanders

What is your favorite design trend right now?

I am excited to finally see a shift from cooler tones back to natural, earthy palettes. Most recently, I have been drawn to designs that incorporate warm neutrals, jewel tone accents, matte finishes and mixed materials. My husband and I are building a home this fall, and I am looking forward to adding a few of these details myself!

Is there a publication, book, blog, website, or magazine that has just really inspired you lately? Tell us about it!

The fall issue of Milieu Magazine is absolutely stunning and so inspiring. Designer Betsy Brown’s home in Birmingham is featured. It is breathtaking, and her attention to detail is incredible. Some of the most beautiful designs can be found here in the south!

What’s your favorite room in a home to design? Why?

The master bedroom is one of my favorite spaces to design. While many clients overlook this area, I encourage people to make this a priority. I have heard countless times, “No one goes in there but us.” BUT, it is so important. It’s a personal space where you wind down and rejuvenate, and that is definitely worthy of some design attention! I love helping clients transform their bedrooms into relaxing, beautiful retreats.

Thank you, Katy, for sharing with us! You inspire all of us!

Have a GREAT week and thanks for dropping in today!

Big Impact In A Small Room

powder rooms

In this edition of Inside The Orange Box, our designers are talking about powder rooms! Specifically, how to make the biggest impact in the smallest room of the house! Our question to them was, “If you could only change one thing in a powder room, what would you change that makes the biggest impact?”

Here’s what they had to say!

INTERIOR DESIGNER KATY SANDERS

The walls!  Whether it is a dark, saturated paint color or a fun wallcovering, this is the best way to make a big impact in a small space!

SummerHouse designers share the most impactful changes that can be made in a powder room

( photo cred )

INTERIOR DESIGNER MARY COURTNEY JOHNS

Lighting makes a huge impact in such a small space. There is a fine balance between there being too much and too little. Having sconces as well as a chandelier allow for plenty of direct light on your face while looking in the mirror as well as illumination for the overall room. This also makes the room feel more substantial and open. Choose some standout fixtures to increase the impact factor!

SummerHouse designers share the most impactful changes that can be made in a powder room

INTERIOR DESIGNER ELISH MOON

So this may not be the simplest answer, but it depends on what state the bathroom is in. If you have decent cabinetry and stone already, try a new paint color or wallcovering. If the countertop is an eyesore, invest in some beautiful stone. (Some powder bathrooms might be small enough to score a deal on a stone remnant!)  Another easy update is new lighting! Get creative and evaluate your priorities.

INTERIOR DESIGNER KATIE CARONE

Picking a dramatic new paint color or wallcovering is always the quickest and easiest change that can make such a huge difference in a powder room, assuming no major updates or remodels need to occur. Second to this would be updating the fixtures and/or lighting.

What Sets SummerHouse Apart?

What is SummerHouse?

SummerHouse is a beautiful place that acquired its name after owner Lisa Palmer spent a week vacationing in Florida’s renown 30A several years back. The vibes she got while on that sunny stretch of heaven on earth were the vibes she wanted to deliver to the clients of her growing interior design business. She loved the way their rental house for that summer week made her feel.

SummerHouse 🙂

Fast forward several years and not only is SummerHouse a business where Lisa Palmer makes clients happy, or a showroom that inspires its visitors with its unique mix of modern, classic, funky, and soft. It’s also a design family. SummerHouse has grown to employ seven interior designers, and that is what makes us unique! We are not just a store. We’re not just a design group. We are a design HOUSE! We sell directly off the floor. Our design services are free to those who purchase from us. Our designers are all trained designers with degrees in their field!

The SummerHouse Designers

All you have to do is follow rafljxn and follow the other businesses participating (which are the businesses that rafljxn follows – including us!)

Once you’re following all of those accounts, you just have to comment on entry posts to be entered to win. (Entry posts look something like this!) The more entry posts you comment on, the better your chances of winning are! Each participating business will post one entry post per week. So it is definitely helpful to turn on notifications for each participating business so you can be sure to not miss a single entry post!

Rafl explains it fully on their How It Works page, so check here for the full explanation!

We plan to post our next entry post some time today so keep an eye out! 😉 And GOOD LUCK!

We love having this girl as a part of our team and love hearing more about her favorite project to date, the item she longs to have in her house, and much more! Keep reading! 🙂

What is your favorite design trend right now and why?

My favorite design trend right now is actually designers who are using their expertise to explore designs a little off the beaten path. In a new generation of clients who are Pinterest, HGTV, and internet educated it’s sometimes difficult for interior designers to “wow” their clients. I love seeing designs that aren’t replicas of the most commonly pinned bathroom on Pinterest. I’m not pointing fingers- I’m definitely guilty of sometimes seeking inspiration online before wracking my own brain. But I’ve been really inspired lately not by perfectly replicated designs, but by the designers and clients who take a little liberty with trying out new things!

We know designers always have a little pile of samples of things that they hope to be able to use in their own homes one day… Tell us about one thing that’s in your current pile and why you love it or how you plan to use it!

I am very guilty of having a “happy” pile for my future home. Right now my favorite thing is the most unessential. I am completely in love with a jeweled Samuel & Sons trim. I stare at it longingly often and dream of ways to make it work. Of course, having a seasoned design eye, I chose something very costly. I’m just like my clients though- I need to be practical. I need a home that is inviting and that doesn’t have a warning sign at the door- “no one under the age of 5, though sippy cups are welcome”. I need practical! But that doesn’t mean I haven’t ruled out a gorgeous trim on future drapery. Your home has to make YOU happy first and foremost. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

SummerHouse Interior Designer of the Week: Elish Phares Moon // www.alwayssummerblog.com

What’s your favorite room in a home to design? Why?

 My favorite room to design is a living room. It’s the heartbeat of the house (second only to the kitchen) where many memories are made. I like the challenge of creating a beautiful but functional space. That one room really needs to be the full package. It has to be visually appealing, functional, the hub for the house. I think a successful living room design is incredibly rewarding.

Tell us about your favorite project to date and what you love about that particular project! 

My favorite project to date has been a roughly 14 month project in Oxford, MS. We just had our first install for the project last week and I’ve never had a more rewarding experience. It wasn’t the scale of the project (though large), the budget, or the location. It was an incredibly close relationship with a client equally dedicated to not sacrificing details in her home. The projects that I consistently walk away from feeling accomplished and gratified, are the ones that reflect an open and communicative relationship with my client. It shows in every detail: the cohesiveness of rooms, materials, etc.. We worked hard to be on the same page throughout and I think it shows. I feel very grateful for the opportunity to have learned so much and gained such experience… and to have a project I can walk away from proud I have my name on it.

Sit and Spin

Sit and Spin: Our 7 favorite swivel chairs! // www.alwayssummerblog.com

We love a great swivel chair around here! Adding a swivel to a chair just makes it more fun. Plain and simple! It also makes it more functional in many circumstances! Nurseries, chat groups, keeping rooms, near fire places… The list goes on and on!

Many of the swivel chairs we have access to can also rock, and some even have returns on them, meaning if you spin it, it goes right back to the correct facing position after you get up! Here are a few of our favorite swivel chairs, ranging from more modern to more traditional! Swivel chairs can fit into almost anyone’s aesthetic!

Bedroom on a Budget

SummerHouse Interior Designer Mary Courtney Johns designing a bedroom on a budget // www.alwayssummerblog.comYou might have seen the post we did several weeks ago featuring designer Katie Carone and the living room she put together on a tighter budget! She did a beautiful job, so this time, we put designer Mary Courtney Johns to the test!

Mary Courtney has pulled together a drool-worthy bedroom that looks like it cost about three times what it actually totaled! This room is under $15,000!

Do keep in mind that this is ALL new furniture, so even if $15,000 doesn’t seem low to you, picking just a few new pieces for a certain room can really bring your existing pieces to life by only spending a fraction of this.

Our designers are experts in merging your existing furniture with perfectly selected new pieces to bring the utmost style to your space without breaking the bank!

We think Mary Courtney did a fantastic job of sourcing her specs from our more moderately priced (yet still very good quality) designer lines! Here’s her project!

Designing on a budget... A high end designer's take on a budget bedroom! // www.alwayssummerblog.com

Queen bed // $3530
Queen Coverlet // $455
Pair of Euro Shams // $130 each
Pair of faux fur accent pillows on bed // $210 each
Pair of Bedside Tables // $1370 each
Pair of Lamps // $345 each
8 x 10 Rug // $1865
Pair of Benches // $924 each
Artwork pair // $1500 each
 Room Total // $14,808
“I started this design off with a bed that would make a statement and followed with complimentary, budget friendly options that would only elevate the overall space. These selections, being that they are neutral and transitional, can easily be moved to a guest bedroom years down the road if the homeowner is wanting a change in their own bedroom. I love a portion of high contrast in interiors and used the intensity in the footstools and artwork to play up this feature. The paint color used is Benjamin Moore Intense White, which is an almost white with a tint warm gray; a wonderful backdrop for the deeper tones so they really stand out! It looks much more gray in the image above, but on a wall, it looks whiter!”
How to make your master bedroom furniture last longer // SummerHouse Interior Designer Mary Courtney Johns // www.alwayssummerblog.com
Give Mary Courtney a call (601-853-4445) if you want to know more about any of these pieces! Way to go for pulling together such gorgeousness, Mary Courtney!
