Before & After: Kitchen Update Plus Some!

06
JUNE
2013

Today’s Before and After is outstanding! Designer Lindsey Townsend completed a project a couple of months ago that we’re very excited to tell you about.

We’ve been calling this project “The Kansas Kitchen,” although it’s more than just the kitchen! It also included a powder room and a laundry room/butler’s pantry. The transformation is remarkable!

The homeowner is originally from Mississippi but has lived in Kansas the past couple of years, so she was familiar with SummerHouse. After following us for a while on social media, she turned to us for the long-distance project! After a preliminary meeting at SummerHouse, Lindsey took a trip to Kansas to measure the space (there were no house plans!) and take pictures. They met in person two more times, and the rest was done via phone calls and email! Isn’t technology amazing??

The black and white pictures will give you an idea of what the spaces looked like before Lindsey got in on the project. Let’s start with the main room…

 Lindsey said the client was a joy to work with because she already had an idea of what she wanted. She had been collecting magazine pages and pinning photos on Pinterest, so Lindsey was able to get a real sense of the style this client wanted to achieve.

The client wanted something lighter, brighter, and simply more functional. She wanted to get rid of the Santa Fe-esque medallion behind her cooktop and open up what was somewhat of a crowded space with only eight foot ceilings. The home is a bit older, built in the 1960’s, so the floor plan was rather choppy.

After knocking out a few walls and moving things around, Lindsey was able to open things up, make the space seem bigger, and bring a lot more life and personality in to the rooms.

One of Lindsey’s favorite parts of the kitchen is the island. She modeled it after a piece of furniture that she and the client both loved, pictured below. They picked out the quartzite island top together while Lindsey was in Kansas, but many of the other materials were bought locally in Jackson then drop-shipped to the home in Kansas.

Another way Lindsey created the illusion of taller ceilings was by choosing ceiling mount light fixtures. She also took the backsplash behind the cooktop all the way up to the ceiling, which made things seem more open. “I did a lot of research because I’d never worked with such low ceilings before,” Lindsey said.

Off of the kitchen is the laundry room, which is now also used as a butler’s pantry as well.

After adding shelving at one end of the laundry room, a door on a hinge would’ve been cumbersome, so the sliding door was perfect for this spot, and a great way to save space. It also added to the style of the kitchen.

Lindsey used the same quartz here that she used on the perimiter countertops in the kitchen, as well as the same backsplash and paint colors, making the flow into the laundry room seamless. (The paint colors, by the way, are Smoke Embers and Simply White, both by Benjamin Moore.)

The powder room was also in need of an update, so Lindsey used a remnant piece of quartzite from the island, painted the sink base, and wallpapered with the always gorgeous Kelly Wearstler Imperial Trellis pattern in charcoal.

“The whole thing with this client was getting more function and more storage because she has a large family,” said Lindsey. “She also wanted to incorporate more of a SummerHouse-y feel into her home (which was predominately filled with dark woods and finishes) without any of the update feeling out of place with the style of the rest of her home.”

We love how it turned out, and most importantly, the client is very happy with the result, too, which is the best news of all!

“Home Away From Home” Master Bedroom Design

15
APRIL
2013

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!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME // 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!”

Fondren Residence by Lisa Palmer | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS

“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!”

Fondren Residence by Lisa Palmer | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS

“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.”

Designer Showhouse Feature in Mississippi Magazine

JANUARY
2013

{ mississippi magazine }

The latest issue of Mississippi Magazine has a wonderful 10-page spread on the Designer Showhouse out at Chestnut Hill that our very own Lisa Palmer led the design on! Be sure to pick up a copy and read the story that starts on page 182!

Mississippi Magazine

Here’s a quick excerpt from the wonderful writeup!

“Lisa Palmer of SummerHouse in Ridgeland was chosen as lead designer. Palmer chose fundamentals– wall colors, flooring, and tile. She shares, “I received the plans about six months prior to building. I changed the plans up quite a bit by arching doorways, adding cypress beams, rounding corners instead of using casings in openings, adding flatboard to walls and ceilings to give it more of a cottage feel. I worked with Al Bruce on the front door and added shutters instead of sidelights. I used a lot of semi-transparent stains in different mixes to achieve a unique look.”

Mississippi Magazine | January/February 2013

We hope you enjoy this story, and the rest of the issue, as much as we did!
