We updated our Facebook cover photo (you like us on Facebook, right?!) to serve as a little reminder that our exciting Barry Dixon event is coming up in just a little over a month!
If you haven’t already, be sure to make plans to attend SummerHouse on May 9th to meet internationally renown interior designer Barry Dixon as he signs copies of his latest book, Barry Dixon Inspirations, and gives guests a peek at his brand new collection with Arteriors!
It’ll be a wonderful night with a little live music, some savory Southern fare, and a lot of design inspiration! We are looking so forward to this event and can’t wait to see you here on Thursday evening, May 9th!
Our first ever Garden & Gun ad has just come out! The newest issue of this fabulous magazine (all about the best food/art/interiors/music/sport/travel the South has to offer) is a GREAT one.
We’re excited to be in the pages of this publication amongst some of the South’s hottest!
Take a minute to flip through and please come back and let us know what you think of our ad (which is on page 68!) And for more photos from the interior featured in the ad (designed by Elizabeth Gullett), go to this page of our website!

With the arrival of so many wonderful shipments lately, our showroom is looking extra dazzling due in large part to the many gorgeous pillows we have right now!
From dressy to casual and bold to neutral, we’ve got a pillow for just about any room! Take a look at a few of the favorites…
Switching out your pillows is a really fun and less expensive way to change up the look of a room. Since our staff is full of the most talented interior designers anywhere around, let us help you spruce up your home with new pillows!
The great art is a Paul Edelstein painting from View Gallery, the clothes are from Hemline, all the killer shoes and bags are from Arco, and the furniture is, of course, SummerHouse! Here are a few outtakes from the shoot. Stay tuned for the full ad once we have the winning photo selected and all “prettied up!” 🙂
Ok everyone… We have something VERY cool to announce!!
We’re honored and excited to inform you that Barry Dixon (yes, THE Barry Dixon) is coming to SummerHouse for an event on Thursday, May 9th! Be sure to go ahead and mark your calendars…
Not only is Barry known worldwide for his amazing taste in interiors, but he’s got some pretty serious ties to Mississippi! He graduated from Ole Miss and has used his design to spread warm Southern hospitality all over the globe. One of the pieces from his latest collection for Arteriors was actually inspired by a church in Clarksale, MS!
This will be our biggest event yet (and y’all know how we love getting a good party together!) so we’ll keep you posted as the details get sorted! Stay tuned!
For now, grab that date book and a pen and make a note on MAY 9TH for the event of the year!

Last week, designer Todd Prince completed a beautiful outdoor installation that has given all of us a serious case of spring fever! This is just a peek at the space, brimming with fantastic pieces.
The LEE Industries outdoor furniture is accented by custom iron side tables and custom drapery panels and hardware.And the Holly Hunt fabric used for the drapery is the perfect sheer for a restful outdoor space.
The fire screen, made by the same local craftsman who made the drapery hardware and tables, really makes this covered area special. And the LEE lounge chairs are too pretty for words!
It’s the time of year to start thinking about getting your own outdoor space spruced up for the warmer weather that’s just around the corner! Stay tuned for more pictures from this outdoor oasis, coming in the next few weeks, for inspiration!
Yesterday, we started showing you a few of the beautiful new pieces on the showroom floor, but there was too much to squeeze into just one post! So here are a few more shots of our beautiful new inventory just waiting to go to a good home! (YOUR home!) 😉
See anything you just have to have? Or anything you want to know more about? Feel free to leave us a comment or give us a call and we’ll get you what you need!
We hope all of you are having a wonderful day filled with lots of cards, candy, and kisses!
We’re celebrating this happy occassion by oogling over all of the fantastic new inventory that came over to the floor yesterday! New LEE Industries upholstery, Hickory Chair upholstery and case pieces, Studio A Pottery, Vanguard and Mitchell Gold case pieces… And that’s just the beginning! Have a peek at some of the new beauties we’ve got!
That’s all for today! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post with even more new and pretty stuff!
We’ve recently gotten lots of beautiful new Canvas tabletop wares to the showroom and we’re all completely smitten with how gorgeous it all is! New plates, glasses, linens, condiment bowls, and more all mix beautifully to create a stunning set table!
Casual earth tones + beachy blues + gold and white all mix together so wonderfully!
Come take a look at all of these pretties with your own eyes to fully appreciate how different and fabulous this collection is!
Late last week, Marty got our beautiful Interiors Marketbooths in Fondren looking better than ever!
Among so many other things, we’ve got some of the most fabulous gourmet chocolates you’ll find!
These are the perfect Valentine’s gift for just about anyone!

Most of us up here are pretty big fans of (okay, some of us are completely obsessed with!) the one and only Kelly Wearstler. Her style is absolutely magnetic, both in fashion and interiors!
We have been so in love with the newest collection she did with Groundwords for Lee Jofa that we had to share some highlights!
A little about this collection:
“In her second collaboration with Groundworks, Kelly Wearstler has created a vibrant and inspiring fabric collection that combines her love for natural materials, graphic patterns and unique colors. The collection features organic and textural designs that are quietly elegant, as well as the bold prints that have become a Kelly Wearstler signature.”
We love her go-to color palette. It’s always really different, but it just plain works. That’s why she’s so good!
Which of the fabulous fabrics pictured most grabs your eye?
Our showroom is looking better than ever with new furniture, new art and accessories, and new jewelry! We’ve all already snagged some of the baubles for ourselves, and have been day dreaming about how great all of the new upholstery and case pieces would look in our clients’ homes and our own homes… Here’s what you’re missing out on if you haven’t been by in the past several days!
Does anything strike your fancy? We’re happy to get you any information you might need on anything you see pictured!
As we do just about every week, we’ve added some beautiful new inventory to our showroom floor! New beauties from Mitchell Gold, Vanguard, LEE Industries, Dransfield and Ross, and many others have done a fabulous job of freshening up the store and giving us lots of new pieces to become obsessed over!
Have a look.
If you have any questions about any of the pieces you see, feel free to leave a comment or give us a call! One of our friendly designers would love to assist you!
