Inside The Orange Box: Where To Start Designing a Dining Room

25
SEPTEMBER
2015

It’s time for another edition of Inside The Orange Box, where our designers take a moment to talk through common design issues or give little pieces of design advice to you guys! We love picking their minds about specific design-related topics! If you’ve ever got a question you’d like to see our designers’ input on, feel free to comment with your topic idea and we’ll do our best to work it in!

Today’s question is…

When designing a dining room, what do you as a designer find to be the best starting point? What do you pick out first?

INTERIOR DESIGNER LISA PALMER

“When designing a dining room, I usually start with the table. It’s the focal point in the room… usually. In decorating, there are no hard fast rules. So, sometimes I have started with a beautiful gilt mirror and then selected the console for the long wall and so on. The mirror would become the star of the room.”

INTERIOR DESIGNER TODD PRINCE

“With a dining room I love to start out with the rug if one is needed.  That helps establish a stylistic approach and a color palette.”

SummerHouse Interior Designers on Dining Rooms... // www.alwayssummerblog.com

INTERIOR DESIGNER MARY COURTNEY JOHNS

“The light fixture above the table is often times the focal point so I would consider that to be a major decision when designing a dining room. No matter the style that is being aimed for, this component is crucial for setting the tone for the rest of the room. A statement needs to be made!”

SummerHouse Interior Designers on Dining Rooms... // www.alwayssummerblog.com

INTERIOR DESIGNER CAMILLE HOLLAND PARKER

“After the table, of course, I love to start with a beautiful wall covering in a dining room! It is fun and can be applied to walls or unexpectedly to the ceiling! It really elevates the design of the space!”

SummerHouse Interior Designers on Dining Rooms... // www.alwayssummerblog.com

INTERIOR DESIGNER ELISH PHARES MOON

“Dining rooms are fun to design because they don’t have many essentials (dining table, dining chairs, etc…) so there is room, dare I say need, for something bold. There is freedom to design with an unexpected element because formal dining rooms aren’t often used on a daily basis, so wear and tear, neutrality, and practicality aren’t necessarily the driving force. I love to try a rich paint color, a beautiful wall covering, or a bold pattern on drapery. The dining room in itself has the potential to be a homeowner’s best art piece.”

SummerHouse Interior Designers on Dining Rooms... // www.alwayssummerblog.com

INTERIOR DESIGN KATY HINES

“The CHANDELIER!  Lighting can really set the tone for the whole design – dressy, formal, relaxed, informal…  It can also define the style of the room – traditional, modern, or transitional.”

The lovely Barbara Westbrook is joining us tomorrow for the signing of her beautiful book Gracious Rooms! We are so excited to welcome her into our shop (which looks beautiful right now, by the way!)

In case you missed these blog posts, find out more about why we love Gracious Rooms and why Lisa is so excited to have her here!

One of our local favorites, La Brioche, is catering some light bites so there will be plenty to nosh on while chatting with Barbara as well as with our talented design staff!

La Brioche in Fondren // www.alwayssummerblog.com

One thing our designers are really looking forward to is breakfast with Barbara on Friday morning! Lisa is all about our staff learning as much as possible and bringing new design perspectives to our area by way of chatting with design greats like Barbara! Our designers are always looking to grow, so designer chats like the one we have planned for Friday morning will not only benefit our designers, but you as well, since they’ll be growing their knowledge and using it when designing your home!

We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow from 3 p.m to 6 p.m. We plan to have a  great time!

See you then!

Inside The Orange Box: Favorite White and Light Neutral Paint Colors

Inside The Orange Box this week, we’re talking about paint colors! Choosing a paint color seems to give most people more anxiety than almost anything when it comes to interior design! Our designers weigh in on their favorite white and neutral paint colors to hopefully help reduce the stress commonly associated with the topic!

SummerHouse Designers' favorite white and neutral paint colors // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER LISA PALMER

“My go to white is Benjamin Moore Linen White. SummerHouse is painted Linen White and our customers always ask what the wall color is. It is an ivory with not too much yellow in it. It is fresh and light and simply beautiful.”

LINEN WHITE // SummerHouse Designers' Favorite White and Neutral Paint Colors // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER TODD PRINCE

“My favorite “go to” white is Ben Moore White Dove.  It’s crisp and clean and has no weird undertone.”

WHITE DOVE // SummerHouse Designers' Favorite White and Neutral Paint Colors // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER ELISH PHARES MOON

“My go to neutral paint colors are Moonlight White or Dune White, both by Benjamin Moore. They almost universally compliment and are the perfect backdrop for any design.”

MOONLIGHT WHITE // SummerHouse Designers' Favorite White and Neutral Paint Colors // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DUNE WHITE // SummerHouse Designers' Favorite White and Neutral Paint Colors // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER MARY COURTNEY JOHNS

“I recently used Benjamin Moore Moonshine to refinish a client’s breakfast table and chairs. The color looked fantastic as the backdrop for the charcoal velvet and marble design cotton upholstery that I used. The paint has a blue gray tint while staying light and fresh.”

MOONSHINE // SummerHouse Designers' Favorite White and Neutral Paint Colors // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER KATY HINES

“Benjamin Moore White Dove is my favorite, especially for trim and cabinets!”

WHITE DOVE // SummerHouse Designers' Favorite White and Neutral Paint Colors // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER LINDSEY TOWNSEND

“Moonlight White and Classic Gray, both by Ben Moore, are my go-tos these days!”

MOONLIGHT WHITE // SummerHouse Designers' Favorite White and Neutral Paint Colors // www.alwayssummerblog.com

CLASSIC GRAY // SummerHouse Designers' Favorite White and Neutral Paint Colors // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER CAMILLE HOLLAND

“My favorite go-to white is Benjamin Moore Dove White, but I’ve really loved using Revere Pewter lately. It is a beautiful, soft grey that compliments all colors!”

Inside The Orange Box: How To Make A Bed

14
AUGUST
2015

In this round of Inside the Orange Box, we asked our designers to share their favorite ways to make up a bed! As always, we love their answers!

DESIGNER LISA PALMER

“I love an all white bed with one accent. I love a beautiful, fluffy down duvet cover tri-folded at the foot of the bed, and on a king bed, I typically like three euros and a 36” x 15” single pillow in front as the decorative accent. The euros sit in front of two king pillowcases.”

SummerHouse Designers share their favorite way to make a bed // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER ELISH MOON

“There is always an inner battle when I design bedding for a client. I love simplicity and a clean look…but I looooove accent fabrics. If I do bolder patterns I usually do less pillows. If I do a textured but monochromatic look I might have more layers.”

SummerHouse Designers share their favorite way to make a bed // www.alwayssummerblog.com

SummerHouse Designers share their favorite way to make a bed // www.alwayssummerblog.com

DESIGNER MARY COURTNEY JOHNS

“I like to constantly change the way I make a bed, depending on the application. If I am including a pattern, I will either incorporate it in the shams or the accent pillows in front. I usually like to keep the coverlet simple to provide a neutral backdrop for the pillows. Any way a bed is dressed, it needs to be inviting and comfortable most of all!”

Designer Of The Week: Lisa Palmer

03
JULY
2015

Our designer of the week this round is our leading lady Lisa Palmer! Lisa wears about a hundred hats around here, the biggest of which is lead designer. We all love working with Lisa and are all so thankful to have her as our design mentor! Let’s get to a little Q&A, shall we?

Interior Designer Lisa Palmer // SummerHouse // Ridgeland, MS

What is your favorite thing about being a designer?

It was never my dream as a youth to be an interior designer. I never rearranged my bedroom every other week as I hear some other designers say. I suppose it was a beautiful accident that I fell into this profession. I was a theatre and art major at Ole Miss and when I realized I might want to use my credits in a more practical way I looked into interior design. Luckily, I fell in love with it.

What is one of your favorite projects you’ve ever worked on and why? 

Of course, I’m going to say that ALL of my projects are my favorite! One of my first “big” projects when I went out on my own as a designer was a corporate condominium. Not only did I have to renovate and furnish it, but I had to supply the home with all kitchen supplies, including the china and silver. I also supplied the home with bath towels and all linens on down to the toilet paper. Lucky for me, the company loved what I selected and from what I hear, haven’t changed a thing. That project was completed nearly 15 years ago.

Is there anything you’re particularly loving right now as far as design?

Natural materials such as marble, quartz, brass, onyx, and concrete are being incorporated into furniture, lighting, wallcoverings and accessories. I truly love that look! On the other end of the spectrum, 100% acrylic fabrics have made their way indoor. And they are gorgeous! They are not used just on outdoor furniture anymore. So moms can rest a little easier when their little ones get messy on their white slipcovered sofa!

Interior Designer Lisa Palmer // SummerHouse // Ridgeland, MS

How would you say design influences the way you go through life?

It’s a curse! I see design every where I go; in my car, my Apple computer, even my water bottle! The sleek lines, the symmetry, the texture… it’s all about design. Every product we use has had someone spend countless hours on its design. When a room is designed well, we live in it better. It’s a fact. Our life seems a little more in balance and that is a very important thing.

A well designed room // Lisa Palmer of SummerHouse in Ridgeland, MS

Be sure to keep up with Lisa on a daily basis by following her on Instagram and Pinterest! She’s definitely a fun follow! 🙂

Home Accents Today Retail Stars of 2015

01
JUNE
2015

We are so honored to have been named a Retail Design Star by the editors of the premier trade magazine for the home accents industry, Home Accents Today!

The Retail Stars list recognizes independent brick-and-mortar retailers of home accents, including furniture stores and interior design boutiques, that are creative in their merchandising, contributing to their communities and distinguishing themselves from the competition. You can see why this is such an honor for us!

SummerHouse is a 2015 Retail Star! // www.alwayssummerblog.com/ / / / / \ \ \ \ \

Susan Dickenson, Retail Editor at Home Accents Today, says “SummerHouse is a beautiful, first-class retail and design operation that does everything right. Their merchandising, social media, and that gorgeous store! And they do lots of catered events, classes and parties with authors, artists and designers. I also love that the energy and design expertise of Lisa Palmer and her staff are so perfectly presented on SummerHouse’s website and blog, where it’s ‘Always Summer.’ They seem to love what they do there. We’re honored to have SummerHouse on this year’s list.”

The magazine’s editors said SummerHouse and this year’s honorees demonstrate that it takes a lot more than great product to outsell the competition, whether it’s the big box stores, the online sites or the shop across the street.

“Retail is fun, but it is surely not easy. In fact, there has never been a tougher time to be an independent retailer, with the ongoing challenge of chain-store competitors now supplemented by the dramatic growth of online retail,” said Jenny Heinzen York, editor in chief of Home Accents Today. “The 2015 Retail Stars represent some of the best independent stores in the country – ones that have taken on these challenges with a combination of clever entrepreneurship, innovation, merchandising, customer service, marketing and community involvement. We are delighted to recognize these talented stores, and, take this opportunity to encourage everyone to support their own local businesses.”
