This is our last segment in highlighting our trip to High Point for market! Don’t worry, though, because pieces from the photos you’ve seen will start arriving at Summerhouse in the very near future! And we can’t wait!

In the meantime, let’s touch on a few more bits of our trip…

We were invited to a cocktail party at Ferguson Copeland to celebrate the launch of designer Mary McDonald’s line for them, and we ran into so many design world celebrities, including Mary of course! It was a great party! 🙂

Another cocktail party where we had a really nice time was for Gabby! They had a Gatsby theme with some really fun, 20’s inspired drinks to enhance the party motif!

During our visit to Lillian August, we found the most amazing leather sofa and bought it within about a minute of seeing it… How stunning is this?!

And Marty perfectly matched the chair across from that sofa! 🙂

To close out, we’ll leave you with some Lee Industries! We got a fantastic piece of art, some Charlie West lamps, and a few pieces of furniture directly off their floor, then wrote up an order for the rest!

Creepy Chic

In honor of Halloween (which is only a couple of days away… How did it get here so fast!?), we’ve put together a small collection of Creepy Chic rooms, decorated with unconventional or just downright creepy art and accessories.

Skulls on the wall? Creepy art over the bed? (Maybe in the living room, yeah, but right over your head as you sleep at night? A little scary!) These designers know just how to incorporate these into a livable space without seeming terribly frightening! (Photos collected from Lonny and Rue)

A skull sits right there on the table between those two chairs. This family must not have any kids!
Not only does this artwork have a slightly scary flair to it, but that hand on the cocktail table could really creep a girl out!
Such a beautiful, serene room. Then you notice the eyeball in the piece of art on the right! Wow…
Skulls in the bookshelf
Skulls on the wall… This skull is actually pretty cool and funky!
Try falling asleep at night with this crazy lady hanging over your head…. NOOO THANK YOU!

Got some other good photos we could add to our collection? Post them on our Facebook wall and you just might win a fun prize! We wish you a Creepy Chic Halloween!! Be careful out there this weekend!
