Meet Maddie from SummerHouse | Oxford

We have a new face at SummerHouse | Oxford that we want to introduce to you! Meet Maddie Ertle 🙂 Maddie is a fabulously talented design assistant who fits perfectly with our Oxford team! You’ll want to stop in and say hi next time you’re in the area…

Meet Maddie Ertle at SummerHouse | Oxford Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I am 22 and from St. Louis, MO. My major is Art with emphasis in Graphic Design and I have a double minor in Art History and Italian. I went to an all girls Catholic College Preparatory high school called St. Joseph’s Academy in St. Louis and Ole Miss for undergrad -GO REBS! I am the oldest of 4, 3 girls and 1 boy and my family lives in St. Louis.

When did you realize you were interested in working in design?

I have always (from the minute I could draw) loved art and design and throughout my education have been pushed (in a good way) towards a design career. I worked for a well known designer in St. Louis from 2013-2017, learning all the ways of a registered designer and the tricks of the trade. I knew from the first day of my job with her that I will always pursue my career in design and was absolutely thrilled to be accepted as a new member of the SummerHouse team!

What is your favorite source of design inspiration?

One of my favorite designers to follow is Celerie Kemble and the Domino Design books are my favorite books.

When you have a little free time, what is your favorite way to spend it?!

When I have free time I like to be outdoors, I love to be around animals and I love to paint and draw.

What’s the best movie you’ve seen lately and why?

I haven’t seen many movies I love lately but my favorite movies are The Help and Ratatouille.

Meet Maddie Ertle at SummerHouse | Oxford What is your favorite thing about Oxford?!

My favorite thing about Oxford is how community oriented it is. Everyone who lives here loves to be here and everyone is so happy and nice.

What’s your favorite local restaurant in the Oxford area?

My favorite restaurant in Oxford is probably Boure.

Is there a certain piece on the SHOX showroom floor that you could take home with you right now if the stars were to perfectly align for ya?!

If I could take anything on the floor I would take the Vanguard King bed in Tish Ivory because it is so beautiful and elegant and looks like it is made of clouds.

In your recent years of working in the design world, what has been the most surprising thing you’ve learned about the business/industry of design?

I’m surprised by the business every day and constantly excited to see the new material presented by vendors. I’m blown away by all the amazing designs they can consistently reveal season after season. I just love the interior design field.

What else do we need to know about you?!

What else you need to know about me is I LOVE this company already and everything it has to offer. The people are incredible, so welcoming and so fun to be around, the merchandise is so beautiful and the designers are so talented. I am so blessed to be included!

Thank you, Maddie! We are blessed to have you! 😉

And thanks to all of you for stopping by today! We hope you’ve had a great week!

Meet The Oxford Team: Rebecca Cornelius

SummerHouse | Oxford Inteiror Desigenr Rebecca CorneliusOver the past few weeks, you’ve met Cara, Stacy, and Olivia of the SummerHouse | Oxford team. Today, meet Rebecca! Rebecca Cornelius is an interior designer at SHOX and is already bringing so much to our team! Get to know her a little better here:

Tell us a little about you! Where you’re from, where you live, about your family…

My parents are from Mississippi but I was born and raised in Texas. I came to Mississippi in 5th grade and left for boarding school in the 9th grade. My mother went to boarding school as well. I grew up knowing how great her education was and how many great friends around the world she met and kept in touch with so I did the same. It is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From there I attended and graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design. After a few years of moving around, I’m back in Oxford, where my grandmother and mother live. It’s so nice! We 3 generations meet at least once a month for our Book Lovers Club meeting and that time is very special.

Tell us a little about your design background!

After college, I stayed in Savannah for a few years then moved back to Texas & worked for two different interior design firms in Dallas & Houston for several years and was finally ready, after 15 years of being away from “home,” to move back to Oxford! I love being back with family and reconnecting with old friends, and of course, doing interior design!

SummerHouse Interior Design

Give us the number one reason you’re excited to be a part of the SummerHouse team!

I am excited about being a part of SummerHouse team because I love Lisa Palmer’s work. Her traditional, transitional and modern mix is wonderful. It is also nice to be a part of a team again after the last year of working independently.

What is your favorite design publication?

Architectural Digest is my all time favorite publication. I do still enjoy paper publications and I hope they never go away because of digital media.

What’s the best movie you’ve seen recently?

Cool Hand Luke

What is your favorite local restaurant and why?!

My favorite local restaurant is Saint Leo’s. Because of their Prosecco Pops & Pizza!

What else do we need to know about you?!

I can’t wait to help local friends and residents design their homes. Come visit me!

Thank you so much to Rebecca for sharing! We hope to see y’all at the Oxford Grand Opening next Thursday!

Meet The Oxford Team: Stacy Stovall

Meet SummerHouse | Oxford's Store Manager Stacy Stovall!You’ve met Olivia and Cara from our Oxford location. Now it’s time to meet Stacy! Stacy Stovall is the store manager at our pretty new location and we have loved having her as a part of the SummerHouse team! Get to know her a little better here!

Tell us a little about yourself! 

I grew up in McComb, MS, went to Ole Miss, met my husband Tonquin Stovall, and have lived in Jackson for the last 24 years. We have 3 boys Adam, Clark and Shelby. We recently moved to Oxford in August. My husband has a mortgage company called HomeFirst Mortgage with an office in Oxford and in Jackson!

Tell us a little about your design background!

I have a Marketing degree from Ole Miss and have always had a passion for design. Early on I was in sales and marketing, but bought a store called Monogram Magic in 1999 until I sold it in 2010 to have the ability to attend more of my boys’ sporting events. I was immediately hired by Jackson Prep to start a school store from ground up and also worked as the Executive Director for Lefleur East. I got a phone call from Lisa Palmer the first week I moved to Oxford about running the new Summerhouse going in on the square. It has been so much fun watching all the renovations. Such a big transformation!!

Milieu Magazine loveGive us the number one reason you’re excited to be a part of the SummerHouse team.

The number one reason I am excited about the opportunity at Summerhouse is that I feel like it marries everything I have ever done or been involved in into one job. I love designing, managing and selling. I also think it is an amazing opportunity to get to learn from Lisa Palmer!

What is your favorite design publication?

My favorite magazine is Milieu magazine and I adore Pinterest for idea searching!

What’s the best movie you’ve seen recently and why?!

I’m sad to say that I haven’t been to a movie in over two years, so I can’t even remember… I know, pathetic!

What is your favorite local restaurant?

Favorite local restaurant at the moment is St. Leo’s!

Thank you Stacy! We’re loving getting to work with you!

Meet The Oxford Team: Cara Fisher

SummerHouse Oxford Sales Associate Cara Fisher The soft opening of SummerHouse | Oxford is THIS week! We can hardly believe it! (We’re planning a big grand opening in January, so we will keep you posted on that once we have more to share!) For now, we want to continue introducing you to our Oxford crew! 🙂

You met Interior Designer Olivia Weeks last week, so today we want to introduce you to Sales Associate Cara Fisher! We have really enjoyed getting to know Cara and are excited for you to get to know her as well! Without any further delay, let’s get to a few questions! 🙂

Tell us a little about you! Where you’re from, where you live, about your family…

I am from Manvel, Texas which is a small town south of Houston, Texas. I grew up in the small town life where everybody knows everybody but, I was close enough to the city to learn how to dream big! I come from a big southern family and I am excited to be joining a new family come May when I get married!

Tell us a little about your professional background! Education, experience, etc…

I am an Ole Miss grad and I’ve most recently worked for a Marketing firm as the Project Coordinator.

Give us the number one reason you’re excited to be a part of the SummerHouse team!

Not only am I excited to be able to spread my creative wings, I am especially excited to work for such an amazing firm. The SummerHouse team is so friendly and kind. I couldn’t ask for a better place to work!

What is your favorite design publication? (It can be a blog, magazine, coffee table book.. anything!)

I recently bought The Magnolia Story by Joanna and Chip Gaines so it’s my current favorite. They just have such a neat story and I love her rustic style!

SummerHouse Oxford Sales Associate Cara Fisher What’s the best movie you’ve seen recently and why?

The best movie I’ve seen so far would have to be The Accountant. My fiancé had to drag me inside and I ended up loving it!

What is your favorite local restaurant and why?

My favorite local restaurant would have to be Boure. I love the crawfish bites and the pan roasted chicken! Plus I’m a sucker for the wooden beams and hardwood floors. It feels like a ski lodge!

What else do we need to know about you?!

One more thing to know about me is that I played volleyball at Ole Miss. When I moved to Oxford to pursue my volleyball career, I never would’ve guessed that I would end up meeting my future husband and making Oxford home but, I am so glad I did!

Thank you Cara! We are thrilled to have you on board! 🙂

Meet The Oxford Team: Olivia Weeks

SummerHouse Oxford Interior Designer Olivia WeeksWith our Oxford store opening REALLY SOON (like, next week!), we wanted to start introducing you to the friendly faces you’ll find when you visit SummerHouse Oxford! Olivia Weeks will be an Interior Designer at the new location and we just know y’all will love her. She is so talented and so much fun! Find out a little more about this talented chick with this little Q&A!

Tell us a little about you! Where you’re from, where you live, about your family…

I just usually say I am from Jackson, Mississippi when people ask me that question! I’ve lived in many places throughout the metro-Jackson area. I’ve lived in Madison, Mississippi the majority of my life, but I did spend a year in the Belhaven area after college round one, and now my family is currently living out in the Reservoir area. I currently live in Oxford, Mississippi; I study social work at Ole Miss and I am hoping to pursue humanitarian aid efforts in the future. I have a sweet two-year-old daughter, Ryann; she is my love and my life.

Tell us a little about your design background! Education, experience, all that good stuff…

I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Southern Mississippi in interior design. Prior to joining the Summerhouse team, I worked for a local marketing agency for over a year after college and then for Ethan Allen for a little over a year after that, before deciding to take a huge leap of faith and go back to school to pursue another degree.

Give us the number one reason you’re excited to be a part of the SummerHouse team!

I am excited to be apart of a team that truly loves what they do everyday. Working for Lisa Palmer is amazing; she is an inspiring designer and someone that I think all the designers at Summerhouse should emulate in their designs. She is dedicated to being a great designer and professional and really wants to give her clients the best quality work they deserve. I am so incredibly excited to get started and thankful to her for giving me this opportunity to help her grow her new Oxford, Mississippi location.

SummerHouse Oxford Interior Designer Olivia WeeksWhat is your favorite design publication?

Architectural Digest; I love architecture, and I love the story that architectural details can tell about a place. There are always creative and innovative designs in that magazine and wonderful stories about how these designers created these spaces and what inspired them most. As a designer, this is something I really enjoy doing; finding a neat architectural detail in a space and really bringing it alive through interior design.

What’s the best movie you’ve seen recently and why?

Since I have a two-year-old, going to the movie theater is really out of the question these days, so right now I am watching movies at home. Most recently, I watched “Contact”; I believe it was released in 1997, so it is a little dated, but I love how determined Jodie Foster’s character is about her research. And who knows, maybe we are not the only ones out here in the Universe. I do also want to go see this new movie “Allied” with Marion Cotillar and Brad Pitt over the holidays; I might be able to break away for that one at some point.

What is your favorite local restaurant and why?

Bravo! I never get to go, but the pasta is so yum; I go every year, New Year’s Eve, and then its back to the grind New Year’s Day.

What else do we need to know about you?

As I have gotten older, I see myself becoming more and more obsessed with everything being in its place. If things are moved, I get the slightest bit of anxiety these days. I love reading and I am a huge advocate for reading a book over watching television; I believe that reading and staying educated are important aspects of life and being successful, and journaling seems to help this as well. I enjoying working out and running. I’m running my first half marathon in January; I am excited and nervous at the same time, but I try to keep to the course and maintain a constant training schedule.

Thank you so much, Olivia, for letting us learn a little more about you. So excited to have you on the Oxford team! We know you’ll do a wonderful job!
