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

SummerHouse Interior Designers' favorite gray paint colors // www.alwayssummerblog.com

“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.”

INTERIOR DESIGNER ELISH PHARES MOON’S PICK

“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.”

Meet Katie Carone!

SummerHouse's newest interior designer, Katie Carone! We have a new designer up here that all of you need to get to know! Her name is Katie Carone and we are LOVING having her on our team so far! (And she just started!) As we do with all of our newbies, we had a quick little Q&A so we could all find out a little more about this talented designer!

Tell us a little about you!

My husband and I have been married for almost 3 years and we live on the Reservoir. I love where we live because being around water and nature makes me so happy..I’d actually love to live on the beach one day. I’m the oldest of 3 girls and was born and raised in Madison. I have 2 nieces Hailey Kate and Stella Grace and they are the cutest and sweetest little girls ever!! I graduated from Madison Central, but was actually in Catholic school at St. Joe 1st-10th grade. I went to college at Ole Miss where I graduated with an Art Degree in 2006.

As a designer, what inspires you most?

There are so many things that inspire me… Fashion, architecture, eating at beautiful new restaurants, but mainly my fellow designers. I get inspired watching them work on projects… Seeing how and why they pull a certain fabric or pick a certain paint color. I love collaborating and brainstorming together and feeding off each other’s creativity. I love what I do!!!

What’s your favorite TV show?!

I actually have several faves..The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul, Bates Motel, Game of Thrones, and every single one of The Real Housewives (don’t judge!)

Have you been on any cool trips recently? Tell us more! 🙂

I actually just got back from Orange Beach with an awesome group of girls for my fabulous sister-in-law’s bachelorette trip!!

What’s your favorite local restaurant in the area and why?

Amerigo! I’m Italian, my husband’s Italian and we Love great Italian food..I crave it at least once a week

SummerHouse's newest interior designer, Katie Carone! Is there a color or design trend you’re really into right now?

I’m really into gold right now..I love it on accent pieces and accessories.

What’s your favorite design publication?

Elle Decor

What might we find you doing on a day off of work?

I love being outside!! When I’m off and it’s nice outside, I’m working in my yard or riding my bike!

When did you realize you wanted to be a designer?

I was always creative. My mom said from the time I was about 7, I started moving the furniture in my room around on a monthly basis… sometimes more than that! It kind of became an obsession. I would swipe accessories from other rooms in our house to use in decorating my room… It started early!

What’s your first impression of SummerHouse?

Stunning and welcoming!

What else do we need to know about you?!

I’m a neat freak… Maybe a little OCD. I literally can’t leave the house with my bed un-made. And I LOVE animals!!!! We had the sweetest most beautiful Malamute named Sophie for 11 1/2 years, but she passed away last May. She was hilarious and would howl to the song Happy Birthday every time she heard it! We miss her terribly and haven’t been able to get another one yet but hopefully we’ll be able to adopt another baby sometime soon.

Meet Kristin Miller!

Hey friends!

Laurel Donahoo here! 🙂 I’m the editor over here at Always Summer and the director of all the social media at SummerHouse! (Can I just take a moment to say that I have the best job EVER?!)

Later this week, I am having my second child so I’m about to be out of pocket for a couple of months! After searching high and low, we finally found someone who I got really excited about as someone who could step into my shoes for a little while! I’m excited to introduce you to Kristin Miller, my INCREDIBLE maternity leave replacement! I’ve known Kristin for a little while now and think she might be the most perfect person ever to take over this position for a while! She was kind enough to answer a few questions for us so you can get to know her a little bit better! So without any further delay… Meet Kristin!

Kristin Miller

Tell us about yourself! Where you’re from, where you live, about your family…
I have grown up in Madison, MS and currently live in Ridgeland with my fiance and child/dog Stella. After graduating from Mississippi State, I immediately moved to New York City. I loved my time there and came back so inspired, but quickly learned that the older I get the more I want to be close to my family. So I now live less than a mile away from my parents and childhood home. If you were to tell me that I’d live that close to them a few years ago I would laugh at the thought but it couldn’t be more perfect now.

What was your first impression of SummerHouse when you walked in for your interview?
WHERE DO I START? There is so much beauty in SummerHouse my mind couldn’t even focus on one thing when I first walked in for my interview. As I stood around and slowly started scanning item by item I immediately noticed the detail put into every inch of the retail floor. For example, one of the coffee tables had the coolest box of matches sitting on it!

What’s your favorite social media platform currently and why?
Instagram. Hands down. You know the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words”? I love that I can scroll through pictures and not only draw a ton of inspiration from the people I follow but also gain a lot of knowledge about what’s happening in friends and family members lives as well as people I look up to all across the world.

What is your favorite way to spend a lazy weekend?
A big breakfast (my favorite meal) followed by a long walk with my dog Stella and a glass of wine with friends.

Rumor has it you do some pretty awesome calligraphy! Tell us more about how you got into that!
When my family first got a computer I was mesmerized by the different font options (there were only about 15 at the time). I would sit in front of the computer and try to copy the fonts for hours. Ever since then I have had a love for typography so as soon as I saw Fresh Ink was holding a Intro to Calligraphy class I immediately signed up. I have been doing calligraphy for about 2 years now and absolutely love it!

What are you eating for dinner tonight?
Salmon, sautéed spinach and onions, and broccoli with Halo Top chocolate ice cream for dessert!

What’s your favorite magazine these days?
Elle magazine’s wedding edition because I get married in April!

What is your favorite app on your phone?
I would be completely lost in life without Google Maps.

What else do we need to know about you?!
I am so excited to get to help out at SummerHouse for the next few months!
/ / / / /  \ \ \ \ \
Yay, thank you so much Kristin! I could not be more excited to have you stepping in.
And thank YOU for stopping by today! I hope your week is off to a great start! xo!
