Inside The Orange Box: Nontraditional Neutrals, Part 2

31
JULY
2015

You might remember seeing from our last Orange Box post about nontraditional neutrals! Today, more of our designers are getting in on the discussion! Let’s see what they have to say!

DESIGNER LINDSEY TOWNSEND

One of my favorite non-traditional neutrals is dark slate blue-greys. I love how it can really ground a space while also balancing well with many other color schemes.  It can be used within a traditional design palette or contemporary.  It is a very versatile non-traditional neutral!

DESIGNER CAMILLE HOLLAND

My favorite non-traditional neutral is black, it is usually thought of as an accent to white or grey neutrals, but it is amazing standing on its own as the main color in a space! It pairs great with all colors and can make any room stand out as a show stopper or can tone down a space for subtle elegance!

DESIGNER KATY HINES

I have really been drawn to blush tones lately!  When paired with creams and ivory, it creates a soft, sophisticated palette.  And it is a beautiful accent to darker neutrals like charcoal and taupe.  Here are a few blush accents you can find in our showroom now!

Inside The Orange Box: Nontraditional Neutrals, Part 1

17
JULY
2015

In this edition of Inside The Orange Box, we’re getting our designers to share their favorite non-traditional neutrals! As much as we all love a good white, gray, or beige, we asked them to think a little beyond that. Their answers are great! Let’s get started!

DESIGNER MARY COURTNEY JOHNS

A deep teal with a bluish-gray undertone would be my first choice for a non-traditional neutral. It adds interesting contrast to any lacking space. I have this color accenting my living and bedroom!

SummerHouse designers' favorite nontraditional neutrals // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER ELISH PHARES

I have many, especially as trends fluctuate, but one of my favorite non-traditional neutrals is olive green. It translates as a neutral and is a beautiful compliment to so many bold colors that often need a balancing force. Olive green pairs well with gold/amber, blush, eggplant, navy, soft blue, etc…

SummerHouse designers' favorite nontraditional neutrals // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER TODD PRINCE

I choose amethyst as my non-traditional neutral because it works so well with so many colors that I personally love, like light or dark gray, olive green, or white. Amethyst is one of those colors that has a gray undertone to it, but it’s so so so flexible. It works particularly well with green!

Master Bedroom Masterpiece

08
SEPTEMBER
2014

SummerHouse Interior Designer Elish Phares takes us inside the master bedroom of one of her clients to remind us of just how beautiful simple design can be! We love the tight color palette, clean lines, and all of the natural light! Elish tells us a little bit about what all went into this design!

Shades of Blue // Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Elish Phares // www.alwaysssummerblog.com

What did your client say she wanted in this room and what were you working with?

For this room, we pretty much had a fresh start in there! The only thing we worked with was her bed, which she had already purchased from SummerHouse. I got to start basically from scratch in there. We selected paint colors together, which is when I learned that her favorite color in any shape or form is blue. So I knew I needed to include several shades of blue! I had already redone her living room, and her master is right off of her living, so I wanted it to be different but I wanted it to still flow off of her living.

Shades of Blue // Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Elish Phares // www.alwaysssummerblog.com

Shades of Blue // Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Elish Phares // www.alwaysssummerblog.com

She wanted it to be calm and soothing. I think she and her husband really like to read, so we made a little reading nook for her over in the corner. A big debate for them was whether or not they wanted to keep a TV in the bedroom, but we eventually decided not to, so we ended up with a lot of room for book storage. They can also use their night stands for storage!

Tell us more about working with this client!

She is great to work with! I knew the design would have to involve blue because that’s her favorite. She likes pretty things, but we have to be somewhat practical- we couldn’t do anything too crazy- because her dogs get on everything. Her dogs sleep on the foot of the bed so the bedding, except for the shams and decorative pillow, is washable.

Shades of Blue // Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Elish Phares // www.alwaysssummerblog.com

We were trying to create a balance between the bed she already had, which is actually kind of green, and that blue. So that was kinda where the color palette came from. And she’s not overly girly. So that’s why the lamps are a little bit rustic. She’s kind of drawn to reclaimed things sometimes! It ended up being a really nice mix.

Shades of Blue // Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Elish Phares // www.alwaysssummerblog.com

How long have you and this client been working together?

We have been working together for about a year now! She’s made several house updates throughout my time working with her. She’s updated finishes, redone her kitchen, redone her floors, painted…. So we are kind of doing interiors as we are going through some of her home updates.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Thanks Elish! So soothing and relaxing… Keep up the good work! 🙂

It’s a weekly column of designer info or unique tips that members of our staff will share every Friday from inside our little box of tricks, tips, and ideas!

Some weeks we may get input from the whole staff, and other weeks we may just have one or two designers lending their expertise to this column!

So, without any further hesitation, we bring you…

Whether you’re looking to soften up your bedroom or make your sun room more relaxing, these pretty favorites from our staff are great ones to look into! (BUT! We do advise getting a professional opinion before spending the time and money on painting… Paint colors can be very tricky!)

New From Studio Bon!

NOVEMBER
2013

We have some exciting posts to bring you later this week recapping a super fun staff party we had over the weekend, Christmas plans, and some beautiful projects by our talented design staff! But since those aren’t ready yet, we wanted to show you a few new intros we’re kind of going crazy over right now…. 🙂

One of our favorite fabric lines, Studio Bon, has come out with some new patterns that we’re just in love with! (And not only do they offer fabrics, but wallcoverings too!!)

The goldy tones get us in the holiday mood for some reason, and the patterns are so fun and different (which Stuio Bon is always good at introducing!)

SUMMERHOUSE LOVES STUDIO BON!

Studio Bon Love // SummerHouse

We could see the wallcovering in a powder room or as an accent wall, and the fabrics would be great for headboards, pillow, or anything in between!

Do you love these as much as we do?!

One Fantastic Nursery, Complete!

31
OCTOBER
2013

A few months ago, we showed you a beautiful presentation of one fantastic nursery by SummerHouse designers Lindsey and Chelsea… Everything about the presentation was perfect, and as we mentioned in that original post, the items in this room were carefully chosen so the space could be every bit as functional as it is pretty.

Now that everything in this room as been installed, we’re happy to be able to share with you the finished product!

Lindsey and Chelsea did an impeccable job of detailing out the room (we love the contrast buttons used on the tufted ottoman!) and making it unique and feminine without it being over-the-top girly.

The client is happy with the result, which is of course, the best outcome of all! We know she and her baby girl will be able to enjoy this peaceful room to the fullest! 🙂

A Visit To View

16
AUGUST
2013

View Gallery, our fantastic neighbor just a few doors down from our shop, has some of the most incredible art right now! From calming and serene to bold and exciting, owner Phyllis Geary has got some great art representing her insanely talented artists.

A few of those artists that our staff have been particularly taken with lately are Kim Duease, Sarah Haas Otts, and Anne McLeod. Each artist’s style is refreshing and unique!

Sarah Haas Otts

Otts grew up on the gulf coast and is inspired not only by her natural surroundings, but by motherhood! Her style is vibrant, abstract, and absolutely gorgeous!

Whether acrylic on canvas or watercolor on paper, McLeod’s landscapes evoke a feeling of longing for a time and place captured by the New Orleans artist’s colorful interpretations of the world as she sees it.

Kim Duease

Kim, a Jackson are native,  uses an intense process and a lovely mix of media to create her encaustics. Though beeswax and purified resin are her main “tools,” so to speak, she also incorporates watercolor, pastel, and other various media to make her art. She finishes each piece with the palm of her hand to create a unique sheen. We were particularly taken with these teeny little masterpieces!
