Meet SummerHouse | Ridgeland Designer Lana Pate

Meet Interior Designer Lana Pate! // www..alwayssummerblog.comWe are so excited to introduce y’all to our newest designer at SummerHouse | Ridgeland! Her name is Lana Pate and she is such a perfect addition to our team. We love this girl, and we think you will too. Get to know her a little better with this quick Q&A!

What got you interested in the Interior Design field?

One of my mother’s best friends was a decorator as I was growing up.  Our families spent a lot of time together.  I loved being around her amazing and never ending energy.  It was impressive watching her make “something” out of “nothing”.  She encouraged me at an early age to pursue my talents and dreams, and she remained a mentor to me throughout my career.

How would you describe your personal taste in design?

My personal taste is much like my personality – colorful!  I decorate my home the same way I advise my clients to design theirs – by surrounding myself with things I love.  I love original art with bold bright colors.  I also have a huge obsession for luxurious fabrics. Velvet being my most favorite!  Did I mention I love gold?  A girl’s got to have a little bling in her world.  My decor is classic with a dose of French and pops of color.

What is your favorite day to spend a day off?

I like to spend my day off by sleeping in then meeting my sister for a delicious lunch at one of our local restaurants.  In the afternoon, I like to go see a movie alone.  It’s a different experience going to the cinema alone versus with family/friends.  When I’m alone, I can completely immerse myself in the story and escape reality for a couple of hours.  I like to end my day with a long hot bath and a good book.

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

Since I literally go almost every week, it’s hard to narrow the field.  Though it’s been a few months, The Light Between Oceans had a profound effect on me.  The story and the characters were very complex.  It was an incredibly sad movie (book), but I could sympathize with each character’s plight.  I pretty much cried the entire time.

What is your favorite source of design inspiration?

My go to source has always been magazines such as Veranda, Traditional Home, Architectural Digest, etc.  I think I started subscribing to Traditional Home when I was 13.  But I also enjoy letting art inspire me.  If I hit a “block” on a project, I’ll head to a local art gallery.  It never fails to get my creativity flowing again

How do you take your caffeine?

My daily dose is unsweetened tea.  But my favorite is Dr. Pepper (preferably in a can).  Sadly, I consider those treats these days!

What is your favorite part of being in the Summerhouse family so far?

I’m loving being surrounded by so much creative energy.  I enjoy how everyone just seems to feed off one another.  It’s fun to see others’ projects and design styles.  And it’s nice to have sounding boards sometimes.

Thank you, Lana! Welcome to the SummerHouse fam! 🙂

Back Door Sale Sneak Peek

SummerHouse's annual BACK DOOR SALE

If you’re one of our beloved social media followers, you have probably seen us announce the dates of our upcoming BACK DOOR SALE! (If you are not one of our beloved followers, but would like to be, we invite you to join us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram!)

The official dates are July 21 and 22 and the location is 830 Wilson Drive in Ridgeland. (Please note that this is NOT our store address. We’ve had to move this sale to an off-site location.)

As always, we are sworn to secrecy right now as far as what will actually be in the sale. The organizers like to keep it all top secret until all final decisions are made. BUT, we were able to get the scoop on a small handful of items that we know for sure will be in the sale, so we get to share some little teasers with you right now! (If you have been a follower of past Back Door Sales, you know this never happens this far in advance of the sale!)

SummerHouse's annual BACK DOOR SALE

Be sure to keep a close eye on our social media for more sneak peeks as we get closer to the 21st… But until then, enjoy this teeny peek (which we feel is well representative of all of the awesome stuff you’ll be able to get your hands on when the day arrives!)

A Few Moments With Artist Carol Sneed

We recently got the opportunity to chat with local artist Carol Sneed about her work, her family, her inspirations, and how she got into art in the first place! Keep reading to find out more about this talented woman whose work we could not adore any more!


Original Oil on Canvas Art by Carol Sneed // www.alwayssummerblog.comCan you tell us a little about yourself? Where you’re from, about your family, how you like to spend a lazy weekend…

I am from Canton, MS. I met my husband, Bill, at Ole Miss, and we married after his first year of Medical School. After my graduation from The University of MS with a Bachelor of Arts degree, and later earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at The University of Houston in design, I practiced Interior Design in Jackson, MS.

We have one daughter, Katherine, who is married to Hunter Worley, and they live in Birmingham, AL.

On a lazy weekend, believe it or not, I like to get some painting in. It is therapy- sometimes, that is! I also like to read & practice sketching. If I am in the mountains where the summer weather is cool, I like to hike or bike.

How long have you been painting, and what got you into painting?

Well, my mother’s favorite piece from the fourth grade, a crayon & watercolor, entitled “Cotton Picking” still adorns her walls. My teacher entered it in an art contest and it won first place.

Original Oil on Canvas Art by Carol Sneed // www.alwayssummerblog.comI have been designing and painting a good deal of my life. At Ole Miss, I took art electives for fun. After Ole Miss graduation, I studied painting from a local instructor for fun. My fine Arts degree included every form of art. After retiring from Interior Design, I knew I had to focus my artistic energy in some direction, and painting was a natural creative outlet. I began sketching and painting seriously in 1999.

How do you describe your style?

That is a hard question! It may not have a name. ha! My goal, however, is to take what is complex and paint it simply. When painting abstractly and experimenting with different color combinations, I try to keep the composition fresh, spontaneous, and appearing effortless.

What do you most enjoy about creating art?

I love an eclectic mix. I enjoy creating art that is very much at home with antiques as well as contemporary pieces. I am always keeping “art for interior design” in mind, and I paint the types of pieces that I searched for to place in client’s spaces.

Original Oil on Canvas Art by Carol Sneed // www.alwayssummerblog.comWhat would you say inspires you most as an artist?

I love the inspiration I receive through travel- to drink it all in. There is nothing like being there to capture the essence of the place. My city scenes and Aspen landscapes are drawn as much from memory as through photo references and sketches. Matisse, Cézanne, Bonnard, and Monet are just a few of my current influences.

I am especially fascinated by nature as a whole, the most awesome masterpiece of all, created by the only perfect artist.

What else do we need to know about you?!

Every day is a gift, and I am thankful for the opportunity to do something I enjoy- and hopefully bring pleasure to other people.

Big thanks to Carol for giving of her time so we could get to know her better! Next time you’re in Oxford, be sure to stop into SHOX so you can see her gorgeous work with your own eyes. Thanks for checking in with us today. We hope to see you soon!

Lee Loves Local Food & Drink

Lee Loves Local at SummerHouse

We are getting VERY excited about our upcoming Lee Loves Local event next Saturday, February 11th! One of the aspects we are most excited about is the food and drink! We’ll give you a taste of what we have in store, but you’ll definitely have to be here on the big day to fully enjoy!

As far as beverages, we will have bartenders from The Manship (which has an award-winning bar) to mix up a couple of their most popular daytime cocktails! Cathead Vodka is providing us with some of their locally distilled vodka and gin to keep things extra “Mississippi!” Also to be made with Cathead Vodka are the Bloody Marys, which will feature Debutante Farmer’s Bloody Mary Mix! We are pumped about this! Lucky Town Brewery is also going to have some local brews as part of the bar.

One of our most beloved neighbors, Fusion Coffeehouse, will have a setup with coffee and hot chocolate, should there be a need for a little extra warmth (or caffeine!), so we will have something for everyone!

Lurny D’s Grille, a burger food truck which a few of our staff members are particularly fond of, will be here keeping our tummies from rumbling! In addition to burgers, Chef Jeremy Enfinger from County Seat in Livingston is planning to prepare some lighter bites for throughout-the-day grazing! We will let the details on those light bites be a surprise, but we can tell you this: It’s gonna be good.

We are so fortunate to have such wonderful food and drink right here in the Jackson area. One thing we hear often from out-of-towners is how spectacular our local food scene is! And we have to agree. We live in a gold mine of exciting food and drink!

hero-open-uri20160624-3-1p08csz

As the cherry on top of all of the above good news… The bar drinks will be served from The Karovan Bar! This is the cutest little bar you ever did see! It’s the prettiest white and natural wood trailer that was made (literally) for events like this! We are thrilled to have them as part of the goings on. 🙂

Stay tuned for more information on our panel coming next week! This panel discussion is one you will not want to miss!

Thanks so much for dropping by today. We can’t wait to see you on February 11th!

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.

SummerHouse Designer of the Week Katherine Shelton

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.
