The Grand Opening at SummerHouse | Oxford

SummerHouse | Oxford Grand Opening

Happy Monday!

We are still on cloud nine after the grand opening of our Oxford location last week! Despite the bad weather, we had a wonderful turnout and were so excited to show our new digs off to our new Oxford friends!

The showroom looked gorgeous with lots of pretty + new, and the food was KILLER. Saint Leo catered and y’all. The food was insane. The best most of us have had in a while! 

Here are a bunch of photos of the lovely night!

Meet The Oxford Team: Rebecca Cornelius

SummerHouse | Oxford Inteiror Desigenr Rebecca CorneliusOver 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!

SummerHouse 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!

Thank you so much to Rebecca for sharing! We hope to see y’all at the Oxford Grand Opening next Thursday!

Meet The Oxford Team: Stacy Stovall

Meet SummerHouse | Oxford's Store Manager Stacy Stovall!You’ve met Olivia and Cara from our Oxford location. Now it’s time to meet Stacy! Stacy Stovall is the store manager at our pretty new location and we have loved having her as a part of the SummerHouse team! Get to know her a little better here!

Tell us a little about yourself! 

I grew up in McComb, MS, went to Ole Miss, met my husband Tonquin Stovall, and have lived in Jackson for the last 24 years. We have 3 boys Adam, Clark and Shelby. We recently moved to Oxford in August. My husband has a mortgage company called HomeFirst Mortgage with an office in Oxford and in Jackson!

Tell us a little about your design background!

I have a Marketing degree from Ole Miss and have always had a passion for design. Early on I was in sales and marketing, but bought a store called Monogram Magic in 1999 until I sold it in 2010 to have the ability to attend more of my boys’ sporting events. I was immediately hired by Jackson Prep to start a school store from ground up and also worked as the Executive Director for Lefleur East. I got a phone call from Lisa Palmer the first week I moved to Oxford about running the new Summerhouse going in on the square. It has been so much fun watching all the renovations. Such a big transformation!!

Milieu Magazine loveGive us the number one reason you’re excited to be a part of the SummerHouse team.

The number one reason I am excited about the opportunity at Summerhouse is that I feel like it marries everything I have ever done or been involved in into one job. I love designing, managing and selling. I also think it is an amazing opportunity to get to learn from Lisa Palmer!

What is your favorite design publication?

My favorite magazine is Milieu magazine and I adore Pinterest for idea searching!

What’s the best movie you’ve seen recently and why?!

I’m sad to say that I haven’t been to a movie in over two years, so I can’t even remember… I know, pathetic!

What is your favorite local restaurant?

Favorite local restaurant at the moment is St. Leo’s!

Thank you Stacy! We’re loving getting to work with you!

Meet The Oxford Team: Cara Fisher

SummerHouse Oxford Sales Associate Cara Fisher The soft opening of SummerHouse | Oxford is THIS week! We can hardly believe it! (We’re planning a big grand opening in January, so we will keep you posted on that once we have more to share!) For now, we want to continue introducing you to our Oxford crew! 🙂

You met Interior Designer Olivia Weeks last week, so today we want to introduce you to Sales Associate Cara Fisher! We have really enjoyed getting to know Cara and are excited for you to get to know her as well! Without any further delay, let’s get to a few questions! 🙂

Tell us a little about you! Where you’re from, where you live, about your family…

I am from Manvel, Texas which is a small town south of Houston, Texas. I grew up in the small town life where everybody knows everybody but, I was close enough to the city to learn how to dream big! I come from a big southern family and I am excited to be joining a new family come May when I get married!

Tell us a little about your professional background! Education, experience, etc…

I am an Ole Miss grad and I’ve most recently worked for a Marketing firm as the Project Coordinator.

Give us the number one reason you’re excited to be a part of the SummerHouse team!

Not only am I excited to be able to spread my creative wings, I am especially excited to work for such an amazing firm. The SummerHouse team is so friendly and kind. I couldn’t ask for a better place to work!

What is your favorite design publication? (It can be a blog, magazine, coffee table book.. anything!)

I recently bought The Magnolia Story by Joanna and Chip Gaines so it’s my current favorite. They just have such a neat story and I love her rustic style!

SummerHouse Oxford Sales Associate Cara Fisher What’s the best movie you’ve seen recently and why?

The best movie I’ve seen so far would have to be The Accountant. My fiancé had to drag me inside and I ended up loving it!

What is your favorite local restaurant and why?

My favorite local restaurant would have to be Boure. I love the crawfish bites and the pan roasted chicken! Plus I’m a sucker for the wooden beams and hardwood floors. It feels like a ski lodge!

What else do we need to know about you?!

One more thing to know about me is that I played volleyball at Ole Miss. When I moved to Oxford to pursue my volleyball career, I never would’ve guessed that I would end up meeting my future husband and making Oxford home but, I am so glad I did!

/ / / / / / / / / /

Thank you Cara! We are thrilled to have you on board! 🙂

Meet The Oxford Team: Olivia Weeks

SummerHouse Oxford Interior Designer Olivia WeeksWith our Oxford store opening REALLY SOON (like, next week!), we wanted to start introducing you to the friendly faces you’ll find when you visit SummerHouse Oxford! Olivia Weeks will be an Interior Designer at the new location and we just know y’all will love her. She is so talented and so much fun! Find out a little more about this talented chick with this little Q&A!

Tell us a little about you! Where you’re from, where you live, about your family…

I just usually say I am from Jackson, Mississippi when people ask me that question! I’ve lived in many places throughout the metro-Jackson area. I’ve lived in Madison, Mississippi the majority of my life, but I did spend a year in the Belhaven area after college round one, and now my family is currently living out in the Reservoir area. I currently live in Oxford, Mississippi; I study social work at Ole Miss and I am hoping to pursue humanitarian aid efforts in the future. I have a sweet two-year-old daughter, Ryann; she is my love and my life.

Tell us a little about your design background! Education, experience, all that good stuff…

I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Southern Mississippi in interior design. Prior to joining the Summerhouse team, I worked for a local marketing agency for over a year after college and then for Ethan Allen for a little over a year after that, before deciding to take a huge leap of faith and go back to school to pursue another degree.

Give us the number one reason you’re excited to be a part of the SummerHouse team!

I am excited to be apart of a team that truly loves what they do everyday. Working for Lisa Palmer is amazing; she is an inspiring designer and someone that I think all the designers at Summerhouse should emulate in their designs. She is dedicated to being a great designer and professional and really wants to give her clients the best quality work they deserve. I am so incredibly excited to get started and thankful to her for giving me this opportunity to help her grow her new Oxford, Mississippi location.

SummerHouse Oxford Interior Designer Olivia WeeksWhat is your favorite design publication?

Architectural Digest; I love architecture, and I love the story that architectural details can tell about a place. There are always creative and innovative designs in that magazine and wonderful stories about how these designers created these spaces and what inspired them most. As a designer, this is something I really enjoy doing; finding a neat architectural detail in a space and really bringing it alive through interior design.

What’s the best movie you’ve seen recently and why?

Since I have a two-year-old, going to the movie theater is really out of the question these days, so right now I am watching movies at home. Most recently, I watched “Contact”; I believe it was released in 1997, so it is a little dated, but I love how determined Jodie Foster’s character is about her research. And who knows, maybe we are not the only ones out here in the Universe. I do also want to go see this new movie “Allied” with Marion Cotillar and Brad Pitt over the holidays; I might be able to break away for that one at some point.

What is your favorite local restaurant and why?

Bravo! I never get to go, but the pasta is so yum; I go every year, New Year’s Eve, and then its back to the grind New Year’s Day.

What else do we need to know about you?

As I have gotten older, I see myself becoming more and more obsessed with everything being in its place. If things are moved, I get the slightest bit of anxiety these days. I love reading and I am a huge advocate for reading a book over watching television; I believe that reading and staying educated are important aspects of life and being successful, and journaling seems to help this as well. I enjoying working out and running. I’m running my first half marathon in January; I am excited and nervous at the same time, but I try to keep to the course and maintain a constant training schedule.

/ / / / / / / / / /

Thank you so much, Olivia, for letting us learn a little more about you. So excited to have you on the Oxford team! We know you’ll do a wonderful job!

Designer of the Week Katherine Shelton

SummerHouse Designer of the Week Katherine SheltonOur newest Designer of the Week is Katherine Shelton! We love having Katherine as a part of our team. She is such a hard worker and filled with so many great ideas!!

Let’s get on to her Designer of the Week Q&A!

Tell us about a few of your favorite details in a project you’re currently working on!

All of my projects lately, no matter the color palate, seem to have a lot of texture in them. From all of the fabrics to the finishes on the furniture and the accessories as well as the art. And I am Loving it. I LOVE textures!!! They make me very happy!

What is your favorite design trend right now (and why?)

I currently have several favorite design trends. I really like all the carrera marble we are seeing. It seems to be everywhere! Floors in the kitchen and bathrooms, backsplashes and walls. At SummerHouse we have just gotten in some of the cutest picture frames and coasters mixed with carrera marble and wood. Love them! I am also really liking chevron pattern floors… You can lay this pattern with wood, natural stone, or brick. Just makes a small or large space so interesting and can give a room that designer look instantly. Of coarse we want to keep this at a minimum in one home! And lastly, I love all of the brushed gold! It is all the rage. From cabinet hardware and bath fixtures to lamps and chandeliers. And mixing it with grey paint colors and carrera marble is my favorite look. You can also find brushed gold on furniture nail heads and casters and all kinds of accessories come in this finish.

Is there a publication, book, blog, website, magazine that has just really inspired you lately? Tell us about it!

I Love the Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles. It is always so full of fresh ideas. I am also very fond of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles because I lived Buckhead and truly miss living in in that beautiful city. I hope to one day be able to move back. Everyone drums to their own beat. The homes are all so unique to the personalities of each homeowner. I love all of the creativity and uniqueness shown in this publication each and every time it comes out.

What’s your favorite room in a home to design? Why?

My very favorite space to design in a home is a child’s bedroom. It is where I can be the most creative, the most fun, and the most colorful or bold in pattern play. The look on a child’s face when you reveal the space to them is also so wonderful. Wallpaper or fun paint on the walls, modern mixed with antique or vintage pieces, fun built in play spaces or desk areas, a mixture of original art, photography, and prints and custom bedding and window treatments are just a few important key factors on creating a fabulous baby, child, or teen bedroom.

White on White

We absolutely love all white spaces. White on white is crisp, neutral, both modern AND traditional, and simply soothing. All white spaces start with all white walls and trim, so we hit up our design staff for their favorite white + white combos. We love what they’ve picked!

The SummerHouse designers weigh in on their favorite white on white paint color combinations! // www.alwayssummerblog.com

Design Assistant Anabel Webb prefers the Benjamin Moore combo Decorator’s White with Simply White on the trim. Design Assistant Camille Holland Parker likes White Dove on White Dove! Design Assistant Krystle Short’s pick is Ben Moore’s Navajo White on the walls with Farrow & Ball James White on the trim. Designer Katy Sanders likes all Ben Moore Ivory White on both walls AND trim! Lindsey Townsend loves Ben Moore Moonlight White with Simply White on the trim. Katy Carone’s pick is Ben Moore Glacier White on the wall with White Dove on the trim.

Designer Elish Phares Moon likes the monochromatic Ben Moore Moonlight White on both walls and trim and tells us why it’s so beautiful!

“One color? For the walls AND trim? It may sound too good to be true, but in this case, less is more. Although it’s a little too much restraint for some personalities, an all white house is incredibly inviting. It took me a while to get on board. I thought “all white? and stifle my creativity? Leave a huge canvas… blank? NEVER! ” I first tried this combo with a client in Oxford… when I finally saw the finished product it was love at first sight. I loved it so much I did it in my own home- and I fall a little more in love with it each day.”

Great picks, designers. Do YOU have a favorite white on white combo? Tell us in the comments below!

Designer of the Week: Lindsey Townsend

SummerHouse Interior Designer of the Week Lindsey Townsend Our current Designer of the Week is Lindsey Townsend! This talented, beautiful, hard-working chick keeps us constantly inspired with her amazing projects! We love being able to work alongside Lindsey! Get to know her a little better as a designer in this Q&A!

1 – Tell us about a few of your favorite details in a project you’re currently working on!

I am very excited to be working on a new construction project with a renowned architect. The home is just in its beginning phase and will take about 18 months from start to finish to complete. The architecture and landscape plan is absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to add my touches to the interior design. The style of the home is French Caribbean. It will be flooded with natural light, beautiful antique beams, oak floors, Limestone fireplaces and oyster Firerock concrete pavers throughout the exterior. I plan to devote much detail and attention to everything in the interior from the cabinetry, ceilings, doors styles, hardware, stone selections, lighting, and color palette throughout.

2 – Is there a publication, book, blog, website, magazine that has just really inspired you lately? Tell us about it!

I have really been inspired lately by Luxe Interiors + Design Magazine. Luxe has a strong focus on the architecture of a home and how it relates to the interior. Which I feel is so important. The interior design of a home should flow seamlessly with the architecture and surroundings of the space. I am in the middle of a few projects I have been working on from the ground up. Luxe has been very helpful with inspiration for new flooring designs and door and cabinetry details, along with wood stains and ceiling details.

SummerHouse Interior Designer of the Week Lindsey Townsend

3 – What’s your favorite room in a home to design? Why?

My favorite space to design in a home would be the Living Room. It is where most of your time is spent with family and entertaining friends. It usually sets the tone for the design of the rest of the home. It is most often the largest space, so I can be creative with furniture layouts, mixing of pieces, layering of textures and color palettes.

4 – Tell us about your favorite project to date and what you love about that particular project!

I am very proud of a new construction home I completed earlier this year. I spent over 2 years on the project. The architect and builder on the project were great. We all worked very well together. It is absolutely imperative to have a good team behind you, that works well together when completing a project of this scope. The home is on the water at Lost Rabbit. The architecture itself was very inspiring. To list just a few features… It is flooded with natural light, beautiful stone and tile selections, unique lighting, an art collection that is to die for, and a 22′ glass Nano Wall that completely opens up to the main level balcony. The clients were absolutely amazing and really committed to my design plan for the entire house. It turned out beautifully and was recently photographed. Should be up on our website very soon!
