Beachy Bold

We are big fans of a coastal-inspired space, since coast equals beach, and beach equals summer! (We aren’t called SummerHouse for nothin!)

We also love when a bold velvet has the opportunity to enter the scene.

Absolute design magic happens when beachy and bold come together seamlessly, creating a livable, unexpected, totally gorgeous room! That’s exactly what happened in the guest room of one of Lisa’s favorite clients, who was in need of an update.

That big blue velvet and that serene Lynn Sanders painting on a canvas of white walls and white bedding just created the happiest vibe! We also love the feel of the herringbone rug, textured side tables, and stunning blue lamps! The shell mirror, made by the client herself, adds just the right amount of authentic beachiness to the room.

This client’s guests are sure to feel right at home when they get the opportunity to spend a night or two in this happy space!

We hope you’re enjoying the end of your summer and taking it all in before school starts back!

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!”

The SummerHouse Bay at Mistletoe Marketplace

06
NOVEMBER
2014

‘Tis the season for Mistletoe Marketplace, Jackson’s official kickoff to the holiday season! As we have done the past several years, SummerHouse designed one of the entrances to the shopping part of the event, and it turned out beautifully!! Lisa and Marty, the brains behind the operation, went in the direction of a woman’s study with a beautiful, soft color palette. It’s always quite a rush getting our bay ready to go, but always a lot of fun. When you’re ordering pieces from market (which was just a couple of weeks ago!), having custom pieces made, and obsessing over the tiny details, like pencil color (seriously!), like designers do, it’s quite a feat getting everything finished in time! But there’s nothing like a hard deadline to get things happening! 😉

Here are some snapshots of our space… We hope you’ll stop by and take a look if you get to go to Mistletoe this year!

Lines We Love: Natural Curiosities

2014

We’ve always been huge fans of the art that the talented people behind Natural Curiosities create, so when we saw their newest collection, inspired by Egyptian hieroglyphs, we were instantly enthralled!

These ancient symbols are “silkscreened over gold leaf to highlight their understated beauty as abstract art,” as the company puts it.

See what you think about these 24″ x 24″ works of art!

One Dreamy Nursery

10
JUNE
2014

Designer Todd Prince recently completed a nursery for a very special little girl that we are so excited to share with you! Nursery design is always so much fun, and we love the direction Todd took with this particular one. We’ll let him tell more about it!

Dreamy Little Girl's Nursery by SummerHouse Designer Todd Prince

Dreamy Little Girl's Nursery by SummerHouse Designer Todd Prince

“The first thing the client said is, “I want it dreamy. I want to walk in and it feel soft and dreamy.”

They wanted it comfortable and light with just a little bit of blush and white. They wanted interesting and open storage, which is why we did the open shelving so it can grow with her, and we did a 3-drawer chest as a changing table that can one day be used more like a dresser as she gets older.”

Dreamy Little Girl's Nursery by SummerHouse Designer Todd Prince

Dreamy Little Girl's Nursery by SummerHouse Designer Todd Prince

“We did a swivel glider chair and ottoman in the room that is comfortable for the mother now, but can also grow with the room as the child gets older. We tried to do things that would work great with the nursery but would also grow along with the child. The only thing that really won’t grow with her is the bed.”

Dreamy Little Girl's Nursery by SummerHouse Designer Todd Prince

“My client never said she wanted floral, but when she said “dreamy” to me, I just kept picturing something that was pale and large scale. That blush colored Mary McDonald large-scale fabric we used for drapery was the impetus for everything that happened in the room.

She did say more than once that she didn’t want the room to feel like a big linen bedroom. She wanted texture but she wanted it light. So we did a washable velvet on the swivel rocker, a hide on the ottoman, which is easily cleanable, a heavyweight linen on the drapery, and the carpet is a very thickly woven continuous loop carpet so it has the look of a lambs wool sweater. I had a local artisan tweak the finish on the Restoration Hardware baby bed, and did a mixture of silver and gold on all of the metal in the room. We mixed lots of texture to create interest.”

Dreamy Little Girl's Nursery by SummerHouse Designer Todd Prince

“I tried to make it as flexible as possible all while keeping it completely dreamy like a baby. The word dreamy kept coming up a million times. That was the only word she could find to describe the way she wanted the room to feel!”

Dreamy Little Girl's Nursery by SummerHouse Designer Todd Prince

“We did an antique venation glass mirror to make the space feel like it had a little age to it, but the art is all modern. We hung the really glossy Bonnie Fuchs paintings with two Sarah Haas Otts paintings salon style so nothing would be too matchy matchy.  To play off the artwork, and to counteract the hide and linen, I needed a little bit of shimmer at the bottom of the bed so we did a Classic Cloth silk bedskirt and used a Samuel & Sons trim for just a little bit of shimmer.”

Dreamy Little Girl's Nursery by SummerHouse Designer Todd Prince

Dreamy Little Girl's Nursery by SummerHouse Designer Todd Prince

“And, most importantly, we left as much room as we could in the middle of the room for her to play!”

We love how it turned out, and Todd’s client loved it too, which is the most important opinion of all! We hope you love this as much as we do!

Fenwick Residence

26
NOVEMBER
2013

Designer Elizabeth Gullett recently completed a FABULOUS project that we wanted to share with you! We got Elizabeth to tell us a little about this beautiful kitchen and bathroom, and a little about her thought process, while working on the Fenwick Residence…

{ KITCHEN }

“This kitchen was designed for a young, hip, growing family. It needed to be modern and crisp, but still warm and approachable. The creamy white cabinets and wall color make one of my favorite combos: Benjamin Moore Moonlight White and Simply White. The touches of warm brass on the lighting and hardware give a touch of the past, but in a fresh new way. The dark walnut island adds a big shot of warmth and richness- without it, I think this kitchen would have felt cold and boring. Sunbrella slipcovers on the island barstools will hold up to lots of spaghetti- just bleach these babies!”

Design by Elizabeth Gullett

{ BATHROOM }

“This bathroom is one of my favorite parts of the house. A sculptural soaking tub makes a strong focal point immediately as you enter, grounded by the silk pendant overhead. The marble is everywhere- the floors, the walls, and then detailed on the shower floor and ceiling. Huge glass shower doors on each side keep it clean and open. The same Moonlight White and Simply White paint that was used in the kitchen is repeated here. The hardware color changed to polished nickel, giving a clean, crisp feeling. (Note: mixing metals in a house can be great- it gives depth and interest from room to room! I used soft satin brass, polished nickel, and bronzed iron in this house.)”
