Inside The Orange Box: Favorite Roll Arm Upholstered Styles

For this week’s Inside The Orange Box, we asked a few of our designers what their favorite roll arm style upholstery pieces are, and we LOVE what they came up with! All of the styles they picked are updated yet timeless, which describes the perfect piece of furniture if you ask us!

Designer Todd Prince loves the 1573-41 chair from Lee Industries. He likes how the casters work with the rolled arms!

Favorite Rolled Arm Styles of SummerHouse designers // www.alwayssummerblog.com

Jacque is a fan of the Chester sofa by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams because of its beautifully proportioned button tufting, the pleated roll arm at the same height as the back, the tight seat left untufted for comfort, and the gracefully turned feet in front, all with ferrules. It is a classic looking sofa for just about any room!

Today, we celebrate a designer whose style we admire across the board! From furniture to fabrics to books, we’re constantly inspired by the fantastic designer Thom Filicia!

Meet Jen!

27
OCTOBER
2014

We have a new face around here to introduce you to! Meet Jen Kadar, our new receptionist! She’s recently taken over the role of greeting people who come into the store as well as keeping things sane at the front desk and with the phones!

Jaclyn, who has moved on to new ventures, left some big receptionist shoes to fill, but Jen seems to be fitting right on in and not missing any beats! We’re so glad to have her here! Since you’ll be seeing a lot of her, it’s probably time for you to get to know her a little better! Let’s get to some questions!

1. Tell us a little about you! Where you grew up, where you went to school, what you studied…

I grew up mainly in West Monroe, LA, went to undergrad at Louisiana Tech University, graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography and a Minor in Architecture. After graduating, I ran away from LA as fast as possible to Nashville, TN. From Nashville, I moved to Glasgow, Scotland to attend the University of Glasgow and graduated with a Master of Letters in 19th Century Art and Design History.

Meet Jen // SummerHouse // www.alwayssummerblog.com2. We hear you’re married to a Scottish guy! How did y’all meet?

When I moved to Glasgow for grad school, I knew ONE person in the whole of Scotland! My roommate Gillian and I had worked at a ranch together in Colorado years before, and she was my Glasgow connection. When I arrived, she was out of town, but left me a list of her friends and their numbers, saying one of them had a car and would take me on a drive through the country… Simon was the guy with the car (and having a car in Glasgow is a BIG deal – I lucked out)! We met the 2nd day I was in Scotland, starting dating 2 weeks later and the rest is history!

3. What is your favorite thing about SummerHouse so far?

Definitely the people. Everyone has been so welcoming! It’s great to be working with a group of talented, creative and fun people. It is also really pleasant to work in a beautiful space surrounded by such pretty things every day!

4. Since you’re new to the Jackson area, what aspect of the city have you been most impressed by?

When my husband and I bought our house, we didn’t realize we were less than a mile from the Reservoir and the Natchez Trace Trails! It’s great to be able to drive down the road and have such a beautiful area to explore. We’ve also started exploring the restaurant and bar scene and it seems like there’s a plethora of great options. I love having a good balance of nature and city!

5. What’s your favorite book or movie and why?

Hmm… it’s hard to choose! For books, my favorites are Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins because he is just beyond brilliant, and The Great Divorce and The Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis because I love everything that C.S. Lewis has ever written. The way he describes fictional worlds is so beautiful and interesting, I just read his books over and over again and always see something new. For movies, my favorite is Love Song for Bobby Long, which most people have never heard of, but it’s such an honest portrayal of people struggling with their pasts and trying to better themselves.

6. If you could take home one piece of furniture from the showroom floor, which piece would it be?!

I LOVE the grey Whitaker sectional! It’s huge and so comfortable, but also structured and modern with so many beautiful details. I love anything with nail head detailing!

7. What is your favorite holiday? Why?

My favorite holiday is definitely Thanksgiving, because it’s like Christmas without the ulterior motive of presents. It’s just all about family coming together, and that’s when my entire family comes down. I also come from a long line of crazy good cooks, so the food is to die for. Family and food, can’t get any better than that!

8. What else do we need to know about you?!

Well, hmm… I’m kind of a jack of all trades and have dabbled in so many different things. As a kid, I took every different kind of lesson you can think of: dance, gymnastics, tennis, xylophone, swimming, soccer, etc.. Then as I got older, my creative outlet went a million directions: architecture, painting, drawing, photography, jewelry making, graphic design, and even song-writing. My brother and I wrote alot of songs together when I lived in Nashville, and I have a half-finished EP that we started recording with good friends that got interrupted when I moved to Scotland. I played my first and last show in Nashville at my going away party! The past couple of years, my husband and I bought our first home and then relocated to Ridgeland and purchased our second home, so renovating houses has taken up all of my creative energy!

/ / / / /

Thank you so much, Jen! We love it all! It’s such a pleasure to have this girl greeting us every time we walk in the door. Next time you come see us, we think you’ll agree! 😉

Master Bedroom Masterpiece

08
SEPTEMBER
2014

SummerHouse Interior Designer Elish Phares takes us inside the master bedroom of one of her clients to remind us of just how beautiful simple design can be! We love the tight color palette, clean lines, and all of the natural light! Elish tells us a little bit about what all went into this design!

Shades of Blue // Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Elish Phares // www.alwaysssummerblog.com

What did your client say she wanted in this room and what were you working with?

For this room, we pretty much had a fresh start in there! The only thing we worked with was her bed, which she had already purchased from SummerHouse. I got to start basically from scratch in there. We selected paint colors together, which is when I learned that her favorite color in any shape or form is blue. So I knew I needed to include several shades of blue! I had already redone her living room, and her master is right off of her living, so I wanted it to be different but I wanted it to still flow off of her living.

Shades of Blue // Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Elish Phares // www.alwaysssummerblog.com

She wanted it to be calm and soothing. I think she and her husband really like to read, so we made a little reading nook for her over in the corner. A big debate for them was whether or not they wanted to keep a TV in the bedroom, but we eventually decided not to, so we ended up with a lot of room for book storage. They can also use their night stands for storage!

Tell us more about working with this client!

She is great to work with! I knew the design would have to involve blue because that’s her favorite. She likes pretty things, but we have to be somewhat practical- we couldn’t do anything too crazy- because her dogs get on everything. Her dogs sleep on the foot of the bed so the bedding, except for the shams and decorative pillow, is washable.

Shades of Blue // Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Elish Phares // www.alwaysssummerblog.com

We were trying to create a balance between the bed she already had, which is actually kind of green, and that blue. So that was kinda where the color palette came from. And she’s not overly girly. So that’s why the lamps are a little bit rustic. She’s kind of drawn to reclaimed things sometimes! It ended up being a really nice mix.

Shades of Blue // Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Elish Phares // www.alwaysssummerblog.com

How long have you and this client been working together?

We have been working together for about a year now! She’s made several house updates throughout my time working with her. She’s updated finishes, redone her kitchen, redone her floors, painted…. So we are kind of doing interiors as we are going through some of her home updates.

Thanks Elish! So soothing and relaxing… Keep up the good work! 🙂

Bright Blue in the Bedroom

Inside The Orange Box: One Coffee Table Two Ways

23
MAY
2014

Happy Friday to you!

We hope you guys have enjoyed our new Inside The Orange Box column that we’ve been adding to every Friday! Today’s edition is different from what we’ve been doing, but useful and interesting nonetheless!

Today, two of our designers style the same coffee table in their very own ways (without getting to see how the other designer styled it!) They each share a few tips and ideas on what went into their thought processes! We hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoyed putting it together!

One Coffee Table, Two Ways by two Interior Designers // SummerHouse

DESIGN #1 BY DESIGNER ELISH PHARES

Elish shares a bit about her design:

“I thought the beautiful driftwood coffee table called for a down-to-earth lake house vibe. When accessorizing a coffee table I usually divide the space into quadrants. This helps the task seem a bit more manageable.

Coffee Table accessorized by SummerHouse Interior Designer Elish Phares

I broke form a bit by using the large statement greyhound as a focal point. Everything else supported, rather than distracted from that large piece.

I firmly believe one can never have too many books – choosing books with complimentary bindings helps create a cohesive palette as well. Varying heights also aids in creating a layered look. Hint: Build height from the outside in, bottom to top.”

Coffee Table accessorized by SummerHouse Interior Designer Elish Phares

DESIGN #2 BY DESIGNER KATY HINES

Katy gives the ins and outs on her design:

“For the overall design, I went with a palette of whites and creams to lend a soft look then added a deep blue for a punch of color and contrast.

Coffee Table accessorized by SummerHouse Interior Designer Katy Hines

I love to accessorize with books. They tell a story and make your space personal. Display books about the things you love – design, gardening, cooking…whatever interests you!

Coffee Table accessorized by SummerHouse Interior Designer Katy Hines

Fresh cut flowers can bring a room to life and instantly welcome you into a space. If you don’t have the time (or patience), go artificial! SummerHouse has some beautiful arrangements to help you achieve this look.

Trays help to create a layered look without cluttering your space. Add one or two thoughtful accessories. This can be something sentimental or it might just be your favorite decor item like a piece of pottery or a small sculpture.”

Coffee Table accessorized by SummerHouse Interior Designer Katy Hines

Thank you, Elish and Katy! We love both designs and how different they are from one another!

Look for more Inside The Orange Box posts on multiple designers accessorizing the same piece in the near future!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Clean and Inviting

02
JANUARY
2014

Today we have a beautiful project by designer Casey Jenkins to show you! This Master Bedroom turned out exactly how Casey and her clients wanted it, which is always the best outcome! We’ll let Casey tell you a little more about the project!

Bedroom by designer Casey Jenkins // SummerHouse

“The clients started off needing a desk for their office. They were very particular about color finishes and function for their everyday use. Then focus shifted to completing the Living Room.

When I proposed the Living Room, they were so inspired that we decided to complete other rooms as well! This is where we decided to do the Master Bedroom, which is always my favorite room to design! In a Master Bedroom, it is easy to lock down purpose for furniture pieces as well as comfort for the client.”

Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Casey Jenkins | SummerHouse

“These two young clients loved the color palette that was presented to them, and we got started right away! It may be hard to capture by photograph, but the back wall is lined with a Schumacher ivory and matte gold Greek key design. The drapery fabric has an embroidered linen abstract vertical design providing movement and color. The bed was custom made by a local artisan with a light cream linen insert.

We went with all custom pillows and went between slight variations of fabric colors ranging from ivory to light and charcoal blue. The Moore Council Washed Oak Chests are fabulous with a secret door at the top!”

Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Casey Jenkins | SummerHouse

“My favorite wall in this room houses 9 Lauren LaChance botanicals. They bring such a warmth to the space and sense of nature into this serene room! The small slip-covered Lee chairs allow for a small reading area with custom Hodsoll McKenzie embroidered pillows.”

Master Bedroom by Interior Designer Casey Jenkins | SummerHouse

“I so enjoy working with these clients that allow me to present to them what I believe is best for them in their everyday environment. The home’s interior now feels so clean and inviting, just the way we wanted it!”

Fenwick Residence

26
NOVEMBER
2013

Designer Elizabeth Gullett recently completed a FABULOUS project that we wanted to share with you! We got Elizabeth to tell us a little about this beautiful kitchen and bathroom, and a little about her thought process, while working on the Fenwick Residence…

{ KITCHEN }

“This kitchen was designed for a young, hip, growing family. It needed to be modern and crisp, but still warm and approachable. The creamy white cabinets and wall color make one of my favorite combos: Benjamin Moore Moonlight White and Simply White. The touches of warm brass on the lighting and hardware give a touch of the past, but in a fresh new way. The dark walnut island adds a big shot of warmth and richness- without it, I think this kitchen would have felt cold and boring. Sunbrella slipcovers on the island barstools will hold up to lots of spaghetti- just bleach these babies!”

Design by Elizabeth Gullett

{ BATHROOM }

“This bathroom is one of my favorite parts of the house. A sculptural soaking tub makes a strong focal point immediately as you enter, grounded by the silk pendant overhead. The marble is everywhere- the floors, the walls, and then detailed on the shower floor and ceiling. Huge glass shower doors on each side keep it clean and open. The same Moonlight White and Simply White paint that was used in the kitchen is repeated here. The hardware color changed to polished nickel, giving a clean, crisp feeling. (Note: mixing metals in a house can be great- it gives depth and interest from room to room! I used soft satin brass, polished nickel, and bronzed iron in this house.)”

Heaven Is This Guest Room

Lisa recently completed a guest room project that is pretty much perfection…

Heaven is this Guest Room // SummerHouse

Lisa on the project:

“I’ve worked with this client for years so I’m familiar with her style. I kind of had a blank slate in this room.

My client loves a mix of modern and vintage. She also loves white. She owned a bowfront antique chest that had beautiful walnut veneer and also an old gold leaf caned bench. So those were the two vintage pieces. We also added a reproduction bergere that I had painted.”

Bedroom by Lisa Palmer // SummerHouse // Ridgeland, MS

Bedroom by Lisa Palmer // SummerHouse // Ridgeland, MS

“Everything in the room is airy, light, white, and cream. But the trick in a all white and cream room is mixing textures. Because if you don’t, you get boring. In this space, you’ve got cottons, you’ve got silk, silk velvet, wool and sisal, white resin on the side table, with a little gold leaf… Just lots of texture.”

Bedroom by Lisa Palmer // SummerHouse // Ridgeland, MS

“We also mixed high priced items with lower priced items. We did a high low thing. The fuzzy throw at the end of the bed is from Pottery Barn! And the rug wasn’t expensive. But the silk velvet pillow… That cost a little bit!”

Bedroom by Lisa Palmer // SummerHouse // Ridgeland, MS
