SummerHouse in Ridgeland, MS // alwayssummerblog.com

So many pretty new things! We are particularly fond of all the new Lynn Sanders art… What do you see that you’re most fond of?!

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.

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!

Give Art

We are SO excited about the huge shipment of new Lynn Sanders art we just got in last week! Lynn’s art quickly became some of our most favorite because of her unique style and her impeccable use of color! We have several of her large canvas pieces adorning our showroom walls. This most recent shipment, however, was of lots of lovely little small pieces!! These unframed originals, in all different sizes, start at just $95. What perfect gifts these would make for just about anyone! AND, we have some great connections when it comes to framing, so we can help you take care of that part, too, if you wish!

We are SO in love with these that we got a little photo happy… So… Here are a ton of photos of these beautiful new pieces. They are all so pretty, though, we didn’t think you’d mind lots of pictures! 😉

Designer of the Week Katherine Shelton

SummerHouse Designer of the Week Katherine SheltonOur newest Designer of the Week is Katherine Shelton! We love having Katherine as a part of our team. She is such a hard worker and filled with so many great ideas!!

Let’s get on to her Designer of the Week Q&A!

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

All of my projects lately, no matter the color palate, seem to have a lot of texture in them. From all of the fabrics to the finishes on the furniture and the accessories as well as the art. And I am Loving it. I LOVE textures!!! They make me very happy!

What is your favorite design trend right now (and why?)

I currently have several favorite design trends. I really like all the carrera marble we are seeing. It seems to be everywhere! Floors in the kitchen and bathrooms, backsplashes and walls. At SummerHouse we have just gotten in some of the cutest picture frames and coasters mixed with carrera marble and wood. Love them! I am also really liking chevron pattern floors… You can lay this pattern with wood, natural stone, or brick. Just makes a small or large space so interesting and can give a room that designer look instantly. Of coarse we want to keep this at a minimum in one home! And lastly, I love all of the brushed gold! It is all the rage. From cabinet hardware and bath fixtures to lamps and chandeliers. And mixing it with grey paint colors and carrera marble is my favorite look. You can also find brushed gold on furniture nail heads and casters and all kinds of accessories come in this finish.

SummerHouse Designer of the Week Katherine Shelton

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

I Love the Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles. It is always so full of fresh ideas. I am also very fond of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles because I lived Buckhead and truly miss living in in that beautiful city. I hope to one day be able to move back. Everyone drums to their own beat. The homes are all so unique to the personalities of each homeowner. I love all of the creativity and uniqueness shown in this publication each and every time it comes out.

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

My very favorite space to design in a home is a child’s bedroom. It is where I can be the most creative, the most fun, and the most colorful or bold in pattern play. The look on a child’s face when you reveal the space to them is also so wonderful. Wallpaper or fun paint on the walls, modern mixed with antique or vintage pieces, fun built in play spaces or desk areas, a mixture of original art, photography, and prints and custom bedding and window treatments are just a few important key factors on creating a fabulous baby, child, or teen bedroom.
