Office Chic

Commerical office design can be super chic! // www.alwayssummerblog.com

Commercial spaces sometimes have a tendency to look very… well… Commercial! But when done correctly, it IS possible to take a blah space and turn it into something fantastic!

SummerHouse interior designer Todd Prince (who just left us to move back to California! We miss you already, Todd!) did an amazing job of taking the office of one of our favorite clients and turning it into a warm, inviting, and functional space! Take a peek!

Row^10 For The Win

We have a brand new project up on SummerHouseInteriorDesign.com for you to peruse! Designer Elish Phares Moon got the fun task of doing a commercial space for Row^10 Baby (a super cool baby store!) just a few steps away from SummerHouse!

About this project, Elish says,
“I loved designing this fresh space! rOw^10 was worlds away from anything else I’d ever done. I admire [store owner] Katie’s vision for merchandising and filling gaps in local business. I know there is a high standard I have to match for either of us to be satisfied. The final result is exactly what we aimed for; rOw^10 isn’t confined to “baby design.” It has an industrial California modern feel that puts a new spin on baby fashion and appeals to many!”

Jury Duty

This year, SummerHouse had the pleasure of furnishing the Jurors’ Lounge for the International Ballet Competition! The IBC is a prestigious two-week event where competitors from all over the world come to Jackson to compete for bronze, silver, and gold medals as well as contracts with dance companies!

SummerHouse furnishes the IBC Jurors' Lounge

The jurors have the difficult task of determining winners and awarding prizes, so we wanted to make their lounge a haven where they could come and relax between competitions and just enjoy themselves in a serene setting!

Marty and Lisa did a fantastic job of picking what would go in the space, and Bethany and Tina were on hand to help get things steamed, fluffed, etc.! And of course our fabulous moving guys did a great job of getting everything over to the space!

Walking The Line

21
MAY
2014

Designer Todd Prince was recently tasked with helping a long-time SummerHouse client with his new office! The client wanted his office to sort of walk the line between upscale corporate and residential, so when you see these photos, you might not feel like you’re looking at someone’s workspace! Todd did a great job of meshing hospitable comfort with business-friendly design.

We’ll let Todd tell you a little about what went into the design of this beautiful space!

“He wanted this to feel very residential. Not officey. He wanted guests to his office to feel as if they were coming into their home when they came into the space. We decided to go very rich and warm in color. We went with a very dark kind of slate blue wall and we did that throughout the entire space. We used brown leathers, deep gray linens, metal accents, and used modern art to make it feel very residential.

We wanted to try to accommodate as many people as possible, so in his office, we did a sofa and two chairs. In the conference room, we did a table with six chairs and then two sofas, so he could accommodate as many as 12 people in that room.

We did the horn chair covered in hide for a pop of interest when you walk in the door because he did want it to feel very hip while also teetering the line between office and residential. We chose fabrics and leathers that would wear well over time and we accessorized as minimally as possible.

On the casegood pieces we went a little more old world with worn finishes. We did a Club Cu piece for the bar, which is great because it has plenty of storage. In the conference room he did the big John Richard Adrianna Buffet over which he hung a big TV because the buffet could contain all the components.

We gave him lamp lighting in his office to give him good light, but he was lucky to have an office with two walls of windows. Lots of natural light always makes a space feel comfortable.

We tried to go as residential as we could while also making it as upscale corporate as we could. We kinda tried to walk that line and I really like how it turned out!”

When we asked the client how he liked the end result, he said, “It was the best experience. I love SummerHouse and I love working with Todd. I could not be more pleased with how things turned out!”

Great job, Todd! We agree that it turned out absolutely beautifully!!
