Meet Our Summer Intern, Mollie!

SummerHouse's Intern, Mollie Williams! // www.alwayssummerblog.comYou need to meet our summer intern, Mollie Williams! We are so happy to have Mollie around to help us stay organized, help the designers with little projects, and to share little bits of design wisdom and reality with! Mollie, you have been a joy so far! We are so glad we get to have you for the rest of the summer! 🙂

A little Q&A with Mollie…

Tell us about yourself! Where you’re from, about your family, where you went to school… All that fun stuff!

Well, I was born in Jackson, AL and moved here to Mississippi when I was 2 years old. I am from Pearl! I have 2 older brothers and a huge family that is always there when I need them. Growing up I was a gymnast for about 13 years. I graduated from Pearl High School in 2009. I have an Associates Degree from Hinds Community College and I am a senior interior design major at the University of Southern Miss!

What was your first impression of SummerHouse?! 

My first impression of SummerHouse was the people. Everyone here has been so nice and I feel like part of the family now.

What has been your favorite interior design class so far?

That’s a tough one, but so far I would say it’s a tie between Design Media and BIM (Revit) when we designed a restaurant.

What’s your favorite local restaurant in the area?

In town, Jason’s Deli, but my heart and soul would say Froghead Grill in Clinton!

How do you describe your personal design style?

My personal design style would be like contemporary, comfy, light neutral tones, with a splash of color. Modern meets Classic.

What’s your favorite way to spend a lazy weekend?

A perfect lazy weekend is a date with my bed and Netflix!

What has been your favorite type of design to work on in school? Tell us what you love about it!

So far, I like residential and restaurant design. My favorite part about residential is designing the bedroom and bathrooms. I would love to work with clients and to one day make their home comfy and accessible. To see them happy brings joy to my heart. As far as restaurant design, I like it because you can go crazy with the lights, colors, and different types of furniture. People don’t just go to restaurants to eat. At least I know I don’t! The first impression happens whenever they walk through the door.

What else do we need to know about you?!

Well, my favorite colors are green and pink. I am a Christ follower. I love animals. My family is the most important thing to me in the world. I have 5 nieces and nephews. After graduation, I will finally own a dog and therefore will become a “dog” Mommy! My fantasy career would to one day be a famous singer or end up on Television somehow.

Thank you, Mollie! You have been such a wonderful help around here so far! 🙂

Getting The Most For Your Money

 

How to achieve high design on a low budget! Advice and selections by SummerHouse Interior Designer Katie Carone // www.alwayssummerblog.com

We gave our newest designer Katie Carone the task of putting together a living room with all new furniture but on a somewhat tight budget! She’s put this entire room together for under $15,000! Now keep in mind that this is ALL new furniture, so even if $15,000 doesn’t seem low to you, picking just a few new pieces for a certain room can really bring your existing pieces to life by only spending a fraction of this.

We love the beautiful living room she’s put together using our more well-priced designer lines! Here is more information on each piece!

Art // $1140

Cowhide Rug // $540

Grace Coffee Table // $2245

Callie Lamps // $685 each

Cole Drinking Table // $1085

Albion Sofa with three contrast pillows // $2431

Franco Chairs // $1716 each

Jolene Side Table // $855

Trudy Oval Side Table // $855

8 x 10 Sedona Sisal Rug // $390

Grand total // $14,343

Katie went with one of Lisa’s favorite design M.O.s that she calls “high/low.” This is where, even if most pieces in a space are budget conscious (or “low”), splurging on a couple of items (“high”) can really elevate the level of the entire design. Katie’s splurges were the lamps and the drinking table.

“The lamps are very transitional pieces and could be used throughout the house in several different places. On console tables, on bedside tables… So many places! And I love the acrylic base. It gives it an element of high design.”

“I aboslutely drool over that drinking table. Black and gold is my obsession! I know it’s more expensive, but when you find one piece you absolutely love, you just can’t compromise. It gives the room that wow factor!”

Designer tips on making the most of your furniture purchases // www.alwayssummerblog.com

SummerHouse Interior Designer Katie Carone // www.alwayssummerblog.com
Katie Carone

“I love the idea of ordering a sofa that comes standard with contrast pillows like this one. You can order them in a different fabric and use them somewhere completely different, like on a guest bed or in some side chairs.”

“Revere Pewter is one of my absolute favorite paint colors– it would be really nice in this room. I love that you can use browns and grays with it!”

Thank you so much, Katie! We love what you’ve pulled together! If you have any more questions about these pieces, give Katie a call! 601-853-4445

Meet Anabel

Meet SummerHouse Deisgn Assistant Anabel Wilson! // www.alwayssummerblog.comWe want to introduce you to our newest design assistant, Anabel Wilson, today! This girl is awesome. Let’s get our Q&A on!

1. Tell us about yourself!

I’m originally from Jackson..Belhaven to be exact! I graduated from MSU in Interior Design, but it took a second for me to get to that point. My first year in college I went to Ole Miss and switched my major THREE TIMES because I was so not wanting to leave Ole Miss (who can blame me?): Art History, Nursing (this lasted 3 weeks into the spring semester), and Graphic Design. I finally got the courage to transfer to MSU three weeks before classes started.

My mom is an artist and she has dabbled in just about every kind of creative thing (photography, ceramic design, oil painting, and home renovation) so I think that’s where I got the design-bug. I have an older sister (Madison) and a younger brother (Henley). My mom, (Joy) has two labradoodles, who are now the apples of her eye. Their names are Lucy and Scout.

I am newly engaged and getting married in August to my very best friend, Michael Tate Webb (its a double name, aren’t we the cutest??) Michael Tate and I have one 11 year old cat named Mama Roux (Roux for short)

I am an avid supporter of brunch, all things champagne, craft beer, cats, shrimp and grits, and New Orleans.

2. Why did you go into interior design?

Easily one of the easiest and hardest questions. Why is it so hard to put such a passion into words? I have always wanted to pursue a career in Interior Design and once I got to MSU I knew I made the best choice for myself and my future. Interior Design isn’t just a career path, it is 100% a way of life, seeking out the next big design and creating successful designs that make a client feel their best.

3. What was your first impression of SummerHouse?

I have followed Summerhouse for Lord only knows how long. I think I really started paying attention when I started college, so about 5 years ago? I think one of the many things I love about SH is their mix of modern and traditional styles and how they make “good design” possible for ANYONE. It wasn’t until I started working here a few weeks ago that I not only love that, but the atmosphere and the girls make this more than just a job.

4. If you could take one piece from the showroom floor home with you today, which would it be?!

It would easily be the linen bed sheets we have on one of the beds downstairs and without a doubt the Lauren Lachance pieces. Absolutely dreamy!

Lauren Lachance Love // www.alwayssummerblog.com

5. What’s the best trip you’ve been on lately?

The best trip I’ve been on as of today would be Holmes State Park for Thanksgiving. We always stay in the cabins and fish, hike, and relax! This was also particularly special because it’s when I got engaged! I also just got done camping and kayaking, and I have a giant bruise on my leg to prove it!!

6. What band or type of music are you really into right now?

I’m going to go ahead and say it, my fiance has great taste in music so he introduces me to great music almost every week. But one artist that has my attention right now is Taj Mahal. “Leaving Trunk” and “Lovin’ In My Baby’s Eyes” are something I have to listen to at least once while I’m getting ready for work!

7. What’s your favorite social media platform and why!?

Instagram. Duh. I’m not going to say I take the most artistic pictures. A lot of them are more “in the moment” pictures, but a lot of times my brother, sister, and I communicate through the funny pictures.
Twitter comes in a hard 2nd place though, because I like to think I’m way funnier than I really am… Chrissy Tiegan is the queen of Twitter!

8. What’s your favorite design publication?

I absolutely love Architectural Digest magazine and to this day Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent’s pent house in NYC is life changing.

(we totally agree!)

Nate Berkus & Jeremiah Brent NYC Apartment from Architectural Digest // www.alwayssummerblog.com

9. What’s your favorite local hangout?

We love Finian’s Pub! But if it all comes down to it, we love grilling out and either our house or our friends’ houses.

10. What else do we need to know about you?

– I can quote Steel Magnolias and Dumb and Dumber
– I don’t know what my natural hair color is anymore
– My mom is one of my best friends
– I love holding babies
– I am a proud Jacksonian, even the pot holes at times… (Just kidding, I don’t like the pot holes)
– Kitchen and bathroom design make me giddy. Like I love kitchen and bathroom design.
– It is a close call between my dream car: a Volvo SUV or a 1997 Jeep Cherokee, which was my first car.

Thank you Anabel for allowing all of us to get to know you a little better! You’ve already been a killer addition to our team! 😉 XO!

Rathbuns’ Watch List Space Teaser!

Sneak Peek at Interior Designer LIsa Palmer's space for the 2016 Rathbuns' Watch List event // www.alwayssummerblog.com

As many of you know, Lisa has been selected to participate in the Rathbuns’ Watch List Event, which is part of the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival! She has been paired with chef John Lasater of Nashville’s Hattie B’s restaurant and together they are working on an incredible modern southern experience!

We asked Lisa about being paired with Chef Lasater and she emphasized the influence the South has had on both her design aesthetic and his culinary style. She is hoping that the fusion of his and her modern southern styles in two different areas of art, so to speak, “will make people feel relaxed but intrigued.”

We love the selections Lisa has made so far for their space. The colors, the one of a kind pieces… This is going to be so good! Here’s a sneak peek at the rendering and some of the design elements!

Inside The Orange Box: Our Favorite Grays

When it comes to paint colors, one of the safest shades you can pick is a beautiful gray. The right gray goes with almost everything! It’s also a great coordinating color to pair with whites, other neutrals, and even some bolder colors! But grays can be tricky, so you’ll want to consult a professional first if you’re even the least bit unsure of your pick!

Our designers and design staff weigh in on their personal favorite gray paint colors! Let’s see what they picked!

The best paint colors with gray undertones // www.alwayssummerblog.com

INTERIOR DESIGNER LISA PALMER’S PICKS:

“My favorite gray paint color is Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray. I have used it on floors and walls when I need a light warm gray. It is sort of a creamy gray and pairs well with a soft white such as Ben Moore White Dove.”

Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray

“My favorite dark gray paint color is Benjamin Moore Iron Mountain. When I need a jolt of rich smokey gray, I turn to this one. It is dark, so be prepared for a moody space.”

“I’ve been looking at deeper grays as accents lately. Not as a whole room. Think Cabinets or Powder Room. In that vein, my favorite is Desert Twilight.”

If you work from home, or have a home office simply for keeping bills and home projects organized, why not make it beautiful?! Lisa did an incredible job of making this client’s office just as happy as it is functional! The pink, white, and gold accents make the space inviting and modern. And who wouldn’t want their workspace to be such?!

Take a look and see what you think about the space!
