White on White

We absolutely love all white spaces. White on white is crisp, neutral, both modern AND traditional, and simply soothing. All white spaces start with all white walls and trim, so we hit up our design staff for their favorite white + white combos. We love what they’ve picked!

The SummerHouse designers weigh in on their favorite white on white paint color combinations! // www.alwayssummerblog.com

Design Assistant Anabel Webb prefers the Benjamin Moore combo Decorator’s White with Simply White on the trim. Design Assistant Camille Holland Parker likes White Dove on White Dove! Design Assistant Krystle Short’s pick is Ben Moore’s Navajo White on the walls with Farrow & Ball James White on the trim. Designer Katy Sanders likes all Ben Moore Ivory White on both walls AND trim! Lindsey Townsend loves Ben Moore Moonlight White with Simply White on the trim. Katy Carone’s pick is Ben Moore Glacier White on the wall with White Dove on the trim.

Designer Elish Phares Moon likes the monochromatic Ben Moore Moonlight White on both walls and trim and tells us why it’s so beautiful!

“One color? For the walls AND trim? It may sound too good to be true, but in this case, less is more. Although it’s a little too much restraint for some personalities, an all white house is incredibly inviting. It took me a while to get on board. I thought “all white? and stifle my creativity? Leave a huge canvas… blank? NEVER! ” I first tried this combo with a client in Oxford… when I finally saw the finished product it was love at first sight. I loved it so much I did it in my own home- and I fall a little more in love with it each day.”

Great picks, designers. Do YOU have a favorite white on white combo? Tell us in the comments below!

Designer of the Week: Katy Sanders

SummerHouse Designer of the Week Katy Sanders Every few weeks, we pick a different designer to feature as our designer of the week! It’s so much fun for us to really focus in on one designer at a time and see what they’ve been working on, what’s caught their eye, and where they turn for inspiration!

Our newest designer of the week is Katy Sanders! This girl has been working extra hard lately and has pulled together some beautiful rooms! Find out about what’s most inspired her lately, her favorite recent project, and much more! Keep reading!

Tell us about a few of your favorite details in a project you’re currently working on!

My latest project involved a complete living room design for a home in the Bridgewater subdivision. Having downsized to one main living area, my clients needed a comfortable, casual, user-friendly space. I chose slipcovered pieces, warm wood tones, and natural fibers.

Here’s a look at the final selections. We cannot wait for the install this fall!

SummerHouse Designer of the Week Katy Sanders

What is your favorite design trend right now?

I am excited to finally see a shift from cooler tones back to natural, earthy palettes. Most recently, I have been drawn to designs that incorporate warm neutrals, jewel tone accents, matte finishes and mixed materials. My husband and I are building a home this fall, and I am looking forward to adding a few of these details myself!

Is there a publication, book, blog, website, or magazine that has just really inspired you lately? Tell us about it!

The fall issue of Milieu Magazine is absolutely stunning and so inspiring. Designer Betsy Brown’s home in Birmingham is featured. It is breathtaking, and her attention to detail is incredible. Some of the most beautiful designs can be found here in the south!

What’s your favorite room in a home to design? Why?

The master bedroom is one of my favorite spaces to design. While many clients overlook this area, I encourage people to make this a priority. I have heard countless times, “No one goes in there but us.” BUT, it is so important. It’s a personal space where you wind down and rejuvenate, and that is definitely worthy of some design attention! I love helping clients transform their bedrooms into relaxing, beautiful retreats.

Thank you, Katy, for sharing with us! You inspire all of us!

Have a GREAT week and thanks for dropping in today!

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!

Bedroom on a Budget

SummerHouse Interior Designer Mary Courtney Johns designing a bedroom on a budget // www.alwayssummerblog.comYou might have seen the post we did several weeks ago featuring designer Katie Carone and the living room she put together on a tighter budget! She did a beautiful job, so this time, we put designer Mary Courtney Johns to the test!

Mary Courtney has pulled together a drool-worthy bedroom that looks like it cost about three times what it actually totaled! This room is under $15,000!

Do keep in mind that this is ALL new furniture, so even if $15,000 doesn’t seem low to you, picking just a few new pieces for a certain room can really bring your existing pieces to life by only spending a fraction of this.

Our designers are experts in merging your existing furniture with perfectly selected new pieces to bring the utmost style to your space without breaking the bank!

We think Mary Courtney did a fantastic job of sourcing her specs from our more moderately priced (yet still very good quality) designer lines! Here’s her project!

Designing on a budget... A high end designer's take on a budget bedroom! // www.alwayssummerblog.com

Queen bed // $3530
Queen Coverlet // $455
Pair of Euro Shams // $130 each
Pair of faux fur accent pillows on bed // $210 each
Pair of Bedside Tables // $1370 each
Pair of Lamps // $345 each
8 x 10 Rug // $1865
Pair of Benches // $924 each
Artwork pair // $1500 each
 Room Total // $14,808
“I started this design off with a bed that would make a statement and followed with complimentary, budget friendly options that would only elevate the overall space. These selections, being that they are neutral and transitional, can easily be moved to a guest bedroom years down the road if the homeowner is wanting a change in their own bedroom. I love a portion of high contrast in interiors and used the intensity in the footstools and artwork to play up this feature. The paint color used is Benjamin Moore Intense White, which is an almost white with a tint warm gray; a wonderful backdrop for the deeper tones so they really stand out! It looks much more gray in the image above, but on a wall, it looks whiter!”
How to make your master bedroom furniture last longer // SummerHouse Interior Designer Mary Courtney Johns // www.alwayssummerblog.com

Meet Anabel

Meet SummerHouse Deisgn Assistant Anabel Wilson! // www.alwayssummerblog.comWe want to introduce you to our newest design assistant, Anabel Wilson, today! This girl is awesome. Let’s get our Q&A on!

1. Tell us about yourself!

I’m originally from Jackson..Belhaven to be exact! I graduated from MSU in Interior Design, but it took a second for me to get to that point. My first year in college I went to Ole Miss and switched my major THREE TIMES because I was so not wanting to leave Ole Miss (who can blame me?): Art History, Nursing (this lasted 3 weeks into the spring semester), and Graphic Design. I finally got the courage to transfer to MSU three weeks before classes started.

My mom is an artist and she has dabbled in just about every kind of creative thing (photography, ceramic design, oil painting, and home renovation) so I think that’s where I got the design-bug. I have an older sister (Madison) and a younger brother (Henley). My mom, (Joy) has two labradoodles, who are now the apples of her eye. Their names are Lucy and Scout.

I am newly engaged and getting married in August to my very best friend, Michael Tate Webb (its a double name, aren’t we the cutest??) Michael Tate and I have one 11 year old cat named Mama Roux (Roux for short)

I am an avid supporter of brunch, all things champagne, craft beer, cats, shrimp and grits, and New Orleans.

2. Why did you go into interior design?

Easily one of the easiest and hardest questions. Why is it so hard to put such a passion into words? I have always wanted to pursue a career in Interior Design and once I got to MSU I knew I made the best choice for myself and my future. Interior Design isn’t just a career path, it is 100% a way of life, seeking out the next big design and creating successful designs that make a client feel their best.

3. What was your first impression of SummerHouse?

I have followed Summerhouse for Lord only knows how long. I think I really started paying attention when I started college, so about 5 years ago? I think one of the many things I love about SH is their mix of modern and traditional styles and how they make “good design” possible for ANYONE. It wasn’t until I started working here a few weeks ago that I not only love that, but the atmosphere and the girls make this more than just a job.

4. If you could take one piece from the showroom floor home with you today, which would it be?!

It would easily be the linen bed sheets we have on one of the beds downstairs and without a doubt the Lauren Lachance pieces. Absolutely dreamy!

Lauren Lachance Love // www.alwayssummerblog.com

5. What’s the best trip you’ve been on lately?

The best trip I’ve been on as of today would be Holmes State Park for Thanksgiving. We always stay in the cabins and fish, hike, and relax! This was also particularly special because it’s when I got engaged! I also just got done camping and kayaking, and I have a giant bruise on my leg to prove it!!

6. What band or type of music are you really into right now?

I’m going to go ahead and say it, my fiance has great taste in music so he introduces me to great music almost every week. But one artist that has my attention right now is Taj Mahal. “Leaving Trunk” and “Lovin’ In My Baby’s Eyes” are something I have to listen to at least once while I’m getting ready for work!

7. What’s your favorite social media platform and why!?

Instagram. Duh. I’m not going to say I take the most artistic pictures. A lot of them are more “in the moment” pictures, but a lot of times my brother, sister, and I communicate through the funny pictures.
Twitter comes in a hard 2nd place though, because I like to think I’m way funnier than I really am… Chrissy Tiegan is the queen of Twitter!

8. What’s your favorite design publication?

I absolutely love Architectural Digest magazine and to this day Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent’s pent house in NYC is life changing.

(we totally agree!)

Nate Berkus & Jeremiah Brent NYC Apartment from Architectural Digest // www.alwayssummerblog.com

9. What’s your favorite local hangout?

We love Finian’s Pub! But if it all comes down to it, we love grilling out and either our house or our friends’ houses.

10. What else do we need to know about you?

– I can quote Steel Magnolias and Dumb and Dumber
– I don’t know what my natural hair color is anymore
– My mom is one of my best friends
– I love holding babies
– I am a proud Jacksonian, even the pot holes at times… (Just kidding, I don’t like the pot holes)
– Kitchen and bathroom design make me giddy. Like I love kitchen and bathroom design.
– It is a close call between my dream car: a Volvo SUV or a 1997 Jeep Cherokee, which was my first car.

Thank you Anabel for allowing all of us to get to know you a little better! You’ve already been a killer addition to our team! 😉 XO!
