Tell us more about you!
I am so excited to be working at SummerHouse. I love design and making people’s house into a home they love and enjoy coming home to.
I am from Brookhaven, MS, I attended Brookhaven Academy and Ole Miss for college. I have been in Jackson for almost 8 years now and just recently
bought a house in Madison. I am an only child and I have two pups that I spoil more than I should.:) I love to travel and see new places. I am a runner and love to be outside. If I am not at work or outside doing something, you can find me in the gym, training. It is my stress reliever!
When did you first become interested in interior design? Tell us a little about that realization!
I became interested in design at a very early age. I can remember moving accessories and furniture in my parents house around. I designed my own
bedroom, from paint colors, fabrics, bedding, pillows etc; when i was 12.
Tell us more about your personal design style!
My personal design style is polished casual. I like crisp, clean neutrals, with a surprise of color. Simplicity to me goes a long way. I like classic looks, not trends, and I like to mix textures and metals. My mood has a lot to do with it and what the room is used for. In my house, each room has a different feel/personality.
What is your favorite way to spend a day off?
My favorite way to spend my day off is relaxing with the boyfriend by the water or working on a project around my house.
How do you take your coffee?
I take my coffee with only two splenda….now! I used to be terrible. I would have a little coffee with my cream and sugar. More like syrup!
What’s the best trip you’ve been on recently? Tell us a little more about it!
The most recent trip I have been on was to Miami. I absolutely loved it. The weather was perfect. The food was amazing. But my favorite part about Miami would have to be the architecture and design. The homes are gorgeous. Everything is white and crisp with vibrant pops of color.
What aspect of SummerHouse is your favorite?
My favorite part about SummerHouse is that it feels like home. As soon as you walk in the door, you get that relaxing, ahhh feeling. Everything is beautiful and of the utmost quality. I love having other designers to bounce ideas off of. It is always helpful when you get stuck in a project or just need another point of view. All of the girls here are terrific designers and I am very privileged and excited to have the opportunity to work here.
