SummerHouse Owner and Lead Designer Lisa Palmer has Benjamin Moore Onyx in her own bedroom and adores the coziness that the color provides.

SummerHouse | Ridgeland design assistant Krystle Short loves colors in the deep green family. “I am infatuated with deep, sultry greens right now! Narrangansett Green and Newburg Green, both by Ben Moore, are fabulous examples of how one can introduce rich, soothing color without overwhelming a space.”

Meet Laurie Conway

Meet Laurie Conway of SummerHouse | Oxford Happy almost weekend, y’all!

There’s a new face in the Oxford shop that you need to get to know! May we introduce to you Laurie Conway! Laurie is a fabulously talented designer who we are thrilled to have as part of our Oxford team and SummerHouse family! Get to know her just a little bit better with a quick Q&A…

1. Tell us about yourself! Where you’re from, about your family, where you went to school…

I grew up in Tupelo and studied Interior Design at Mississippi State. After graduation I moved to Jackson where I have worked in Design for over 20 years. I have two amazing children, Ben and Julia, who are my heart and soul. I have family in Oxford and northeast Mississippi as well as in Jackson. I’m so excited to be back in the Oxford area!

2. Give us a quick overview of your design background! 

I started out with an architectural firm and quickly realized I loved residential design even more. I have worked in design for over 25 years, both on my own and for other designers in Jackson.
3. What got you interested in working in the Interior Design field?
I have always loved to design and create things. When I was young, I loved making furniture for my Barbies. My Mom says as a child I could be content for hours with typing paper, a ruler and a pencil. I have never wanted do anything else, so it is definitely my passion.
4. What is your favorite source of design inspiration and why?

I’m not a huge fan of digital media, but I love to flip through a magazine over and over again. I have stacks of them on the floor by my bed. I love Traditional Home, Veranda, Milieu and Elle Decor just to name a few!

5. How would you describe your personal taste in design? 

I love clean lines mixed with antiques and modern pieces, and layering with accessories and rugs for texture.

6. What is the most inspiring place you’ve visited lately?

New Orleans is always an inspiration to me, so I go there as often as possible. Walking around in the Garden District and sitting in Audubon Park are my happy places.

7. What is your favorite way to spend a day off? 

I love working in my yard and potting flowers. I love to paint as well as faux finish. Creating is so relaxing to me.

8. What’s the best movie you’ve ever seen and why?

Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my favorite movies. I love how it depicts Southern women’s lives and strength.

9. How do you take your caffeine? 

Black!

10. What is your favorite part of being in the SummerHouse family so far?! 

I am so excited to be a part of this great team. The designers are so incredibly talented and welcoming and Lisa is of course fabulous!!

Thank you so much, Laurie! We are thrilled to have you on board!

Meet Maddie from SummerHouse | Oxford

We have a new face at SummerHouse | Oxford that we want to introduce to you! Meet Maddie Ertle 🙂 Maddie is a fabulously talented design assistant who fits perfectly with our Oxford team! You’ll want to stop in and say hi next time you’re in the area…

Meet Maddie Ertle at SummerHouse | Oxford Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I am 22 and from St. Louis, MO. My major is Art with emphasis in Graphic Design and I have a double minor in Art History and Italian. I went to an all girls Catholic College Preparatory high school called St. Joseph’s Academy in St. Louis and Ole Miss for undergrad -GO REBS! I am the oldest of 4, 3 girls and 1 boy and my family lives in St. Louis.

When did you realize you were interested in working in design?

I have always (from the minute I could draw) loved art and design and throughout my education have been pushed (in a good way) towards a design career. I worked for a well known designer in St. Louis from 2013-2017, learning all the ways of a registered designer and the tricks of the trade. I knew from the first day of my job with her that I will always pursue my career in design and was absolutely thrilled to be accepted as a new member of the SummerHouse team!

What is your favorite source of design inspiration?

One of my favorite designers to follow is Celerie Kemble and the Domino Design books are my favorite books.

When you have a little free time, what is your favorite way to spend it?!

When I have free time I like to be outdoors, I love to be around animals and I love to paint and draw.

What’s the best movie you’ve seen lately and why?

I haven’t seen many movies I love lately but my favorite movies are The Help and Ratatouille.

Meet Maddie Ertle at SummerHouse | Oxford What is your favorite thing about Oxford?!

My favorite thing about Oxford is how community oriented it is. Everyone who lives here loves to be here and everyone is so happy and nice.

What’s your favorite local restaurant in the Oxford area?

My favorite restaurant in Oxford is probably Boure.

Is there a certain piece on the SHOX showroom floor that you could take home with you right now if the stars were to perfectly align for ya?!

If I could take anything on the floor I would take the Vanguard King bed in Tish Ivory because it is so beautiful and elegant and looks like it is made of clouds.

In your recent years of working in the design world, what has been the most surprising thing you’ve learned about the business/industry of design?

I’m surprised by the business every day and constantly excited to see the new material presented by vendors. I’m blown away by all the amazing designs they can consistently reveal season after season. I just love the interior design field.

What else do we need to know about you?!

What else you need to know about me is I LOVE this company already and everything it has to offer. The people are incredible, so welcoming and so fun to be around, the merchandise is so beautiful and the designers are so talented. I am so blessed to be included!

/ / / / / / / / / /

Thank you, Maddie! We are blessed to have you! 😉

And thanks to all of you for stopping by today! We hope you’ve had a great week!
