Getting The Most For Your Money

 

How to achieve high design on a low budget! Advice and selections by SummerHouse Interior Designer Katie Carone // www.alwayssummerblog.com

We gave our newest designer Katie Carone the task of putting together a living room with all new furniture but on a somewhat tight budget! She’s put this entire room together for under $15,000! Now 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.

We love the beautiful living room she’s put together using our more well-priced designer lines! Here is more information on each piece!

Art // $1140

Cowhide Rug // $540

Grace Coffee Table // $2245

Callie Lamps // $685 each

Cole Drinking Table // $1085

Albion Sofa with three contrast pillows // $2431

Franco Chairs // $1716 each

Jolene Side Table // $855

Trudy Oval Side Table // $855

8 x 10 Sedona Sisal Rug // $390

Grand total // $14,343

Katie went with one of Lisa’s favorite design M.O.s that she calls “high/low.” This is where, even if most pieces in a space are budget conscious (or “low”), splurging on a couple of items (“high”) can really elevate the level of the entire design. Katie’s splurges were the lamps and the drinking table.

“The lamps are very transitional pieces and could be used throughout the house in several different places. On console tables, on bedside tables… So many places! And I love the acrylic base. It gives it an element of high design.”

“I aboslutely drool over that drinking table. Black and gold is my obsession! I know it’s more expensive, but when you find one piece you absolutely love, you just can’t compromise. It gives the room that wow factor!”

“I love the idea of ordering a sofa that comes standard with contrast pillows like this one. You can order them in a different fabric and use them somewhere completely different, like on a guest bed or in some side chairs.”

“Revere Pewter is one of my absolute favorite paint colors– it would be really nice in this room. I love that you can use browns and grays with it!”

Thank you so much, Katie! We love what you’ve pulled together! If you have any more questions about these pieces, give Katie a call! 601-853-4445

Inside The Orange Box: The Right Light

05
DECEMBER
2014

Inside The Orange Box this week, we talk about getting the right light! Three designers share their secrets of perfecting the ambient lighting in whatever room they are designing… So let’s see what they have to say!

Interior Designer Elish Phares
I don’t have a hard and fast rule when choosing lighting for a space. Unless you are starting from scratch, each room comes with it’s own deciding factors: ceiling height, paint colors, natural light, size, etc. I love a pair of matching lamps in a room, but I usually avoid more than one pair. If I need another matching pair I usually start varying height. For example, a pair of table lamps and a pair of floor lamps look great together but aren’t too repetitive. A beautiful ceiling fixture can go a long way, but I like it to be a focal point and not fight with the rest of the room. If there is already a lot going on, I may think twice about adding a large hanging fixture. Lastly, remember who you are designing for! How do they use the space? What are they drawn to? The room should always be a reflection of those living in it.
SummerHouse Designers share tips on getting the right light // www.alwayssummerblog.com
SummerHouse Designers share tips on getting the right light // www.alwayssummerblog.com
Interior Designer Lindsey Townsend 
When designing lighting for a space, I always take into consideration how the space is going to be used, the amount of natural light, the paint color, the ceiling height, and the size of the room. When starting from scratch, I like to have evenly dispersed can lighting along with a ceiling fixture in the center of the room.  In most cases I will select a decorative ceiling fixture, but not in all cases, because again, it depends on the function, size, furniture, and overall design style of the room.
If the space already has many interesting design aspects then I will select a very simple light fixture, but in other spaces I do the opposite! I will select a light fixture to be the focal point and the rest of the space is designed to compliment it, not compete!  I always put separate dimmers on the light fixture and the can lighting when possible.  Dimmers are always nice to have when entertaining!
SummerHouse Designers share tips on getting the right light // www.alwayssummerblog.com
Interior Designer Molly Ferguson
You should have a mix of light sources at all different levels to create a flattering ambiance. You also need appropriate task lighting for whatever you do in that space. I try to stay away from fluorescent lights if at all possible. In some instances, fluorescent lights will accent blue tones and make reds look colder, and they often are very harsh. Incandescent lighting gives off a warmer, more flattering glow. The most ideal light source is natural light. I believe if the sun is up, your drapery should be open!
Every house is so different, so there are many factors to take into consideration when selecting lighting for a space. It’s always good to hire a professional for guidance in tricky areas such as lighting!

Our Most Popular Lamps

OCTOBER
2014

We. Love. Lamps.

Floor lamps, table lamps, modern lamps, traditional ones… We really just have a thing for pretty lamps!

The ambiance created by simple lamp lighting is unbeatable, and a correctly placed lamp can add so much to a space! Today we’re sharing our four best-selling lamps for your viewing pleasure. We love how different they all are, yet how versatile they are!

(1) The Glaisdale Table Lamp

Can you ever beat glass and brass? This classic combination and more modern design make this lamp a true winner!

The Glaisdale Lamp // SummerHouse's best selling lamps // www.alwayssummerblog.com

(2) Thomas O’Brien’s Bryant Floor Lamp

This lamp is ideal when you don’t have much space, but need an extra light source. This simple, slender little thing is as beautiful as it is understated!

Thomas O'Brien's Bryant Floor Lamp // SummerHouse's best selling lamps // www.alwayssummerblog.com

(3) Barry Dixon’s Snail Shell Table Lamp

We love when designers add a little touch of shine to something nature-inspired. Since this lamp can go a little rustic, or a little glam, we find it to be the perfect touch of unexpected!

Barry Dixon's Snail Shell Table Lamp // SummerHouse's best selling lamps // www.alwayssummerblog.com

(4) Charlie West’s Renaissance Table Lamp

Handmade by Charlie West, an artisan with whom we’ve met and fallen completely in love, this Renaissance lamp truly is thing of beauty. The scale is perfect, and the vibe it adds to a space is as unique as each lamp itself.

Charlie West's Renaissance Table Lamp // SummerHouse's best selling lamps // www.alwayssummerblog.com

A Visit to ADAC

AUGUST
2014

A couple of weeks ago, a group of SummerHouse staff took an overnight field trip to Atlanta to visit ADAC, the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center! ADAC is like a theme park to designers, so naturally, our crew (which consisted of Todd, Tina, Sunny, Jacque, and Lisa) had a fantastic time! It was a first-time visit for most of them, which made the trip extra exciting!
