Over 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!
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!
