THIS SATURDAY!

via Always Summer Blog Our Lee Loves Local event is THIS SATURDAY! We can hardly believe it! We are getting really, really excited. It’s going to be incredible!

Traditional Home and Lee Industries have worked hard with us to bring you a top notch celebration of local Mississippi love and craftsmanship.

The day will start at 11 with a makers market featuring these fabulous small/local businesses, artists, and creatives.  (MADCAAP, our event beneficiary, will also have a booth set up with their handmade jewelry for sale!)

We’ll have plenty to sip on, some fantastic little nibblers, and some live blues music by Scott Albert Johnson to set the Mississippi mood! And if the weather ends up as it is currently forecasted, we are in for one seriously gorgeous day!

At 1:30, our designer panel will take place! Shaun Smith, Julia Reed, and our own Lisa Palmer will discuss entertaining in the South! The moderator will be Krissa Rossbund of Traditional Home. There will be some beautiful visuals, as well as some incredible swag bags for the first thirty people to join us for the panel. If you want in on a swag bag, you do NOT want to be late! (They’ll be filled with goodies from our market vendors+ panelists + MUCH more!)

After the panel discussion, Julia will be signing her newest cookbook, Julia Reed’s South!

The market, food, drinks, and music will resume until 4 when we wind things down.

You can plan on doing a lot of your Valentine’s shopping on Saturday, so if you’re a last minute shopper, we totally have you covered! AND, if you’ve been eyeing a piece of Lee Industries furniture at all, then now is the time to get that. We’re offering 20% off, on stock AND special order, now through the 15th!

If you’re thinking you’ll want the fun to continue into the night, why not grab a ticket to Ignite The Night: London Calling?! Lisa will be performing as Amy Winehouse, which is going to be EPIC! Her musically talented sons will also be getting in on the action!

Thank you for dropping by today!  We can’t wait to see all of you on Saturday!

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!

Shop This Room

The next time you’re flipping through a magazine or scrolling through Pinterest and see a room you love or an item that you just can’t live without, save it! Bring it to us! We have access to hundreds (possibly thousands!) of different lines, many of which often land appearances in design publications. So if you see a style of art that you must have in your home, or a light fixture that you can’t live without, let us try to find it! Or something similar!

We love when clients share rooms that inspire them. It helps our designers get a better feel for what makes our clients happy! And happy clients are the ultimate goal of every single job we do!

Since Keri Russell’s home has been one of the most pinned rooms ever on Pinterest (and with good reason– it’s gorgeous!), we decided to use it to show you what sort of beautiful things we have access to!

Shop Keri Russell's living room at SummerHouse!

We can get any/all of this for you! So next time you see a magazine page that sends you into orbit, let us see it! What inspires you inspires us. We love getting to design for you guys!

Sit and Spin

Sit and Spin: Our 7 favorite swivel chairs! // www.alwayssummerblog.com

We love a great swivel chair around here! Adding a swivel to a chair just makes it more fun. Plain and simple! It also makes it more functional in many circumstances! Nurseries, chat groups, keeping rooms, near fire places… The list goes on and on!

Many of the swivel chairs we have access to can also rock, and some even have returns on them, meaning if you spin it, it goes right back to the correct facing position after you get up! Here are a few of our favorite swivel chairs, ranging from more modern to more traditional! Swivel chairs can fit into almost anyone’s aesthetic!

We rounded up six beautiful, yet very different tufted sofas for you to feast your eyes upon today… Which style most steals your heart?!

The SummerHouse Bay at Mistletoe Marketplace

06
NOVEMBER
2014

‘Tis the season for Mistletoe Marketplace, Jackson’s official kickoff to the holiday season! As we have done the past several years, SummerHouse designed one of the entrances to the shopping part of the event, and it turned out beautifully!! Lisa and Marty, the brains behind the operation, went in the direction of a woman’s study with a beautiful, soft color palette. It’s always quite a rush getting our bay ready to go, but always a lot of fun. When you’re ordering pieces from market (which was just a couple of weeks ago!), having custom pieces made, and obsessing over the tiny details, like pencil color (seriously!), like designers do, it’s quite a feat getting everything finished in time! But there’s nothing like a hard deadline to get things happening! 😉

Here are some snapshots of our space… We hope you’ll stop by and take a look if you get to go to Mistletoe this year!

Inside The Orange Box: Outdoor Favorites

25
JULY
2014

Today’s Orange Box is all about outdoor favorites. There are so many beautiful lines of outdoor furniture and fabrics these days that it’s hard to know where to begin even thinking! Since a southern fall sticks around a little bit longer than fall in other parts of the country, we think now is as good a time as any to spruce up your outdoor and still have plenty of time (and great evening temperatures) to enjoy it!

Let’s see what our designers are loving as far as outdoor right now!

Always use 100% acrylic fabrics of course. They are colorfast, washable and bleachable and take the abuse our southern weather can dish out. A comfortable swivel chair is a must. Maybe several! Somehow human beings love to move, and I find that swivel chairs, expecially outdoor when we are at our most relaxed, are the perfect chair. The Lee Industries Outdoor Collection has several very comfortable upholstered swivel options and tons of 100% acrylic fabrics to choose from. Four grouped together facing each other with a great round cocktail table is functional and super fun!

I love the Brown Jordan Drift collection. Look how pretty. That’s so me! Inspired by the 1950’s… So sleek and pretty… That is so Todd!

There are so many more options for outdoor furniture now that it is becoming just as important in design as interior pieces! For a designer, that is very exciting. I love LEE outdoor for upholstered, and any clubcu concrete piece for casegoods. There’s nothing better than a great marriage between style and function!

Outdoor fabrics have come such a long way in the past few years, both in look and in feel, that we actually use them for interior design just as much as we do in our outdoor designs! Most of the time, you can’t even tell if a fabric is acrylic or not. One of my favorite lines is Link Outdoor. Great textures and patterns!

I love all of our outdoor lines for many different reasons, but currently I am loving the “Mood Daybed” by Janus et Cie. It has a very unique and updated look.  It would be amazing under a covered area near the pool.  Great place for napping!

Currently, my favorite outdoor collection is the Brown Jordan Marin collection by designer Michael Berman. This is truly a stunning collection! The threading details on the gorgeous teak frames are of a UV-resistant yacht cord. The pieces are very welcoming and cozy, and can even be used indoors!
