Meet Sunny Holliday! Sunny is our newest Interior Designer and is absolutely a joy to be around! Her name matches her sweet and happy personality just perfectly! 🙂 We have really enjoyed getting to know this girl, and think you will too! As we do with all of our newbies, we interviewed her with some fun, designery questions!
Tell us a little about yourself! Where you’re from, where you went to school, a little about your family…
I am from the Jackson area. I attended high school at MRA. After receiving my Interior Design degree from the University of Southern MS, I moved back to Jackson for an Interior Design internship, and I have been back here ever since. I have been happily married for four years… no kids yet, but my dog, Cotton, is our baby for now 🙂 My adorable nephews are my heart!!
What is your favorite aspect of living in the Jackson area?
There are so many great aspects about living in the Jackson area! Having all of my immediate family and close friends here is definitely the best aspect. Also, attending regular community events, as well as endless shopping and dining experiences are pleasant characteristics of Jackson. I love the fact that there is usually an art show to attend, and often times a great band to be heard. It’s a big city, but a small city! I love that about Jackson. Seeing familiar faces throughout the town always makes me feel at home.
In your short time so far at SummerHouse, are there any fabric or furniture lines that you’ve just absolutely fallen in love with?!
Oh YES!! I am always drawn to beautiful fabrics and wall coverings. Here, at SummerHouse, our library has so many wonderful options for this! My favorite upholstery line is Lee Industries. I have found maximum comfort in this line, along with endless fabric and finish options. It’s a very customizable line. As far as art, Lauren Lachance is my new favorite artist right now. Stop by the showroom to see her amazing work!!
What is your favorite TV show, past or present?
Currently, Modern Family always provides a good laugh. The Today Show &/or Live with Kelly & Michael gets me going in the mornings. Also, Girls is one of my favorite series out right now. If it’s a week day, and I’m home from 6-7pm, you will always find my TV on the news, followed by Wheel of Fortune!
What’s the best trip you’ve ever taken?
Well, I always love the beach with friends and family!! The best and most recent was a trip to NYC last October. It was just my mom & me for her birthday, and we had a blast! From fine dining to Broadway shows to touring the city and shopping, it was a very memorable and eventful trip that I will never forget!!
How would you describe your personal design style?
My personal design style is clean, modern & light. I love functional and beautiful spaces that are meaningful. From the small accessories to the main focal point of the room, I want every piece to have a purpose! As far as working with my clients, I really listen to them to see what their needs are. From there, I take my personal style, along with aesthetical and practical views, and really give them what they want!
When you are not partaking of your new favorite thing (which of course is working at SummerHouse!) what would you say are your hobbies?
Spending time with my friends and family is my “2nd job”. It’s my life! It keeps me going. Along with that, any vacationing to any beach makes me happy!
What else do we need to know about you?!
I think one of my greatest qualities is that I’m a very positive person! Rarely will you find me complaining, saying no or getting mad. I get over things pretty quickly and don’t like to be angry. So, most of the time, you will find me very cheerful and happy!!
Sunny’s name and her contagiously wonderful attitude work perfectly together! We are so glad to have this girl up here and can’t wait to see her grow as a designer! Next time you’re in the area, be sure to stop in and meet her!
