Naturally Chic

You may remember several months back when we went on a social media posting frenzy about the beautiful Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles show house that Lisa got to be a part of! Lisa designed the upstairs lounge in this magnificent home:

“Architect Yong Pak of Pak Heydt & Associates and builder Michael Ladisic of Ladisic Fine Homes transformed a James Means-designed home in the heart of Buckhead in its Kingswood neighborhood. The six-bedroom home is sited on 2 acres of land on top of a hill in quiet cul de sac, overlooking a preserve and recreational fields (read: no rear neighbors!). Charleston-inspired cobblestone and brick driveway, heart of pine floors, slate roof.”

Now that the issue with the showhouse feature is out, we can share the room with you! Here’s the spread:

Showhouse Excitement

Southeastern Designer Showhouse Excitement!

We are exactly a month away from from the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Southeastern Designer Showhouse in which Lisa is participating!

The most recent issue of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles officially announced the showhouse and all of the designers, gave some information about the beneficiary (which is the beautiful Atlanta History Center) and gave a floor plan of the home being used. All of this just got us extra excited about the big event!

Simplicity Outdoors

Simple Outdoor Space with Blush Accents by SummerHouse Interior Designer Elish Moon

We have a darling outdoor space to share with you today! This space is actually featured in the current issue of Inspiration Mississippi Magazine, which is hot off the press as of just a few days ago! Designer Elish Moon did a beautiful job of keeping things simple, interesting, and functional for this fun-loving client and her family!

“This outdoor space was a safe place to bring in a bit of flare to the otherwise neutral color palette!” says Elish. “My client uses this space for everything from her morning devotions to entertaining to watching football games with her family,” she shares while describing the need for functionality as well as aesthetic beauty.

When we asked Elish what her favorite thing about the space was, she said, “I love how simple it is. It was a small area and there were only so many options we had in arranging everything, but it is efficient and can be used in many ways. This family LIVES in every inch of their home… and this outdoor space is just an extension of that!”

We love it! Great job Elish 🙂

Be sure to grab a copy of Inspiration Mississippi next time you see one! (We have lots here at the Ridgeland store.) You’ll love every page!

Home Accents Today Retail Stars of 2015

01
JUNE
2015

We are so honored to have been named a Retail Design Star by the editors of the premier trade magazine for the home accents industry, Home Accents Today!

The Retail Stars list recognizes independent brick-and-mortar retailers of home accents, including furniture stores and interior design boutiques, that are creative in their merchandising, contributing to their communities and distinguishing themselves from the competition. You can see why this is such an honor for us!

SummerHouse is a 2015 Retail Star! // www.alwayssummerblog.com/ / / / / \ \ \ \ \

Susan Dickenson, Retail Editor at Home Accents Today, says “SummerHouse is a beautiful, first-class retail and design operation that does everything right. Their merchandising, social media, and that gorgeous store! And they do lots of catered events, classes and parties with authors, artists and designers. I also love that the energy and design expertise of Lisa Palmer and her staff are so perfectly presented on SummerHouse’s website and blog, where it’s ‘Always Summer.’ They seem to love what they do there. We’re honored to have SummerHouse on this year’s list.”

The magazine’s editors said SummerHouse and this year’s honorees demonstrate that it takes a lot more than great product to outsell the competition, whether it’s the big box stores, the online sites or the shop across the street.

“Retail is fun, but it is surely not easy. In fact, there has never been a tougher time to be an independent retailer, with the ongoing challenge of chain-store competitors now supplemented by the dramatic growth of online retail,” said Jenny Heinzen York, editor in chief of Home Accents Today. “The 2015 Retail Stars represent some of the best independent stores in the country – ones that have taken on these challenges with a combination of clever entrepreneurship, innovation, merchandising, customer service, marketing and community involvement. We are delighted to recognize these talented stores, and, take this opportunity to encourage everyone to support their own local businesses.”
