Give Back To Byron

Hello, friends!

We hope all of you had a wonderful weekend! We are starting our Monday off with a bit of a heavy heart for our dear friend Byron Green. Byron, who owns and runs Classic Upholstery, experienced some misfortune last week as his shop burned completely to the ground. He lost everything. Every piece of furniture, every bolt of fabric, every nail gun. EVERYTHING. Byron has been a friend to SummerHouse for a long, long, long time and has done so much beautiful custom work for us. Not only does he do custom reupholstery, but he can build furniture pieces from scratch. And not only is he wildly talented, but he is patient with us. We as designers tend to change our minds from time to time (especially when it comes to a custom piece) and Byron has never once gotten frustrated with any of us. He just laughs, makes a note, and delivers exactly what we ask for.

And we know we aren’t the only designers who work with him. Byron is well known throughout all of Mississippi! He’s simply the best!

Give Back to Byron // alwayssummerblog.com

Bryon is truly a gem, so we want to be there for him during this tough time. We want to give back and help him rebuild his business. Will you help him, too? Please consider donating to the GoFundMe page we started for him. We can’t wait to surprise him with a big ol check! 🙂

Thanks in advance for supporting our friend. Y’all mean so much to us!

Meet New Ridgeland Interior Designer Erin Baker

We are so excited about sharing a fun Q&A with our newest Ridgeland designer Erin Baker today! Erin has been so much fun to have around these past few weeks. Her bright personality fits right in around here! 🙂 Get to know her a little better >>>

Tell us more about you!SummerHouse | Ridgeland Interior Designer Erin Baker // www.alwayssummerblog.com

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.

/ / / / / / / / / /

Thank you, Erin! It’s a privilege to have you as a part of our team!

Meet Elizabeth at SummerHouse | Ridgeland

Meet our new Fabric Librarian, Elizabeth! // www.alwayssummerblog.com

We have a new face at the Ridgeland shop that you definitely need to get to know! We have loved having Elizabeth Fowlkes on our team and you are going to love her, too! Her bright spirit and happy disposition is just so inspiring!

Elizabeth is our part time fabric librarian during the week (she comes in after her “day job”) and is our receptionist on Saturdays. As per our usual, we did a get-to-know-her Q&A, so here it is!

Tell us a little about yourself!Meet our new Fabric Librarian, Elizabeth! // www.alwayssummerblog.com

I am originally from Oxford, MS. I graduated from Oxford High School and completed my Bachelor’s degree in Communication at Auburn University. War Eagle!  I came back to Ole Miss for graduate school, where I studied School Counseling.  I have been in Jackson for the past two years and I work as a School Counselor at Goodloe Elementary School in Canton.  I have a younger sister, Katherine, who just graduated from Ole Miss and lives in Lubbock, TX.  My parents live in Oxford and I go back to visit as often as I can!

Tell us a bit about your “day job” and what you like about it! 

I work as an elementary school counselor during the day and I absolutely love it!!  I love to explore the world through the eyes of children.  I love that my job involves painting, coloring, and puppet shows!  I learn so much from my students. We just finished celebrating “The Great Kindness Challenge” and collected over 900 canned goods for a local food bank, which was all their idea!

What do you like to do on a lazy weekend?

I love to get a pedicure, clean my house, sit on the couch with a good book, and binge watch Friends!

What was your first impression of SummerHouse?!

I fell in love with SummerHouse instantly.  I dream about having a “SummerHouse house.” Everything in the store is so crisp and clean, and every space is beautiful.

Tell us something you’ve learned from your short time at SummerHouse thus far! 🙂

As a counselor I am all about relationships. I can tell that relationships are also very important to the SummerHouse staff also…. relationships with each other and with every customer who walks through the door. That is very special. The coffee is great, too!

What are your currently reading? Do you like it? 

I have read three of Liane Moriarty’s books since Christmas and I couldn’t put them down! I loved Big Little Lies, The Husband’s Secret, and Truly Madly Guilty.

What’s your favorite social media platform and why?

I love Instagram….I love to see where everyone is traveling, eating, shopping, etc.

What is your favorite meal in the whole wide world? Tell us a little about it, where it’s from or who cooks it, and why you love it! 

My mom’s Chicken Spaghetti! I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner forever.  It reminds me of growing up and it’s one of the only things I know how to make well!

Favorite magazine or source for inspiration? Why?

I love Southern Living! You can find the answer for anything and everything.

What else do we need to know about you?! 

I am so excited to be a part of the SummerHouse team!

Thank you so much, Elizabeth! We are thrilled to have ya here 🙂 Thanks for all you have done so far!

Ask Lisa: All White Rooms

All White Rooms: The DOs and DON'Ts from Lisa Palmer of SummerHouse // #interiordesign

We’ve added a fun new video to our YouTube channel as the first in a new series we’re going to start doing called ASK LISA! We asked for y’all to submit questions to us a few weeks back, and we got some GREAT responses! The one we started with was,

“Can you ever go overboard with white when designing a room?”

Watch the video to see Lisa’s response!

So to recap:

  1. Hire a professional! All white rooms can be hard.
  2. Make sure to mix textures.
  3. Add interesting woods!
  4. You do have to worry about dirt. Make sure to use 100% acrylic or Crypton fabrics when possible.
  5. Get a throw to protect your sofas and chairs from pets.
  6. Again, we reiterate, hire a professional! 🙂 (We love doing all white rooms! Hint, hint!)

We have several questions lined up to get Lisa’s opinion on, but we’d love more! So feel free to submit your own questions for Lisa in the comments below! We’d love to hear what you guys want to know from her!

Thank y’all so much for sopping by today! Have a great week!

Q&A With Interior Designer Jenni Hilbun

We are so excited to have Interior Designer Jenni Hilbun join the SummerHouse team in our Oxford location! Jenni is so much fun, is beyond talented, and keeps us laughing! We are thankful to have her as a part of our family. We think you’ll enjoy getting to know her just as much as we have!

SummerHouse | Oxford Interior Designer Jenni Hilbun // www.alwayssummerblog.comCan you tell us a little bit about your background?

I grew up across the south – North Carolina, Georgia, and Mississippi. I spent lots of time with my grandparents in Columbia, MS learning everything from needlepoint (which eventually lead to sewing) to Canasta and of course, spoons!  I finished college at MSU with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Theory. I fueled my creative side with all types of sewing projects and poured through books and magazines learning interior specialty sewing and loving it, often sewing into the wee hours of the morning. This love and ability has grown into a 20 year career in Interior Design.

I live on a farm in Pontotoc County with my husband, Benton, three children, three dogs, one crazy cat, two beautiful horses and five hens! Life is full and rewarding.

At what point did you realize you were interested in interior design?

Pretty early actually. One of my grandmothers always let us cousins decorate her house for Christmas and that was such a treat. She bought whatever “supplies” we wanted and we went to town with it! We even caught her piano on fire one year with a candle! Never even got in trouble, although I’m sure she was clenching her jaw!
She also fostered my love of sewing and fabrics.

If you could travel anywhere in the world for a week, where would you go?

I am really a homebody. I love being at home!

What is the best movie you’ve seen recently? Why’d you like it?

I don’t really go to movies… They’re too loud! But I have been watching The Crown and Reign and loving both. Of course the costumes and drapery details are fantastic.

What’s your favorite local restaurant and why?

I have lots of favorite restaurants because I don’t like to cook. My very favorites are the ones that get a “to go” order correct consistently! And have a pickup lane.

What is your favorite design publication? 

This oscillates between Veranda and Traditional Home. Such good publications. I have difficulty parting with back issues.

If Hollywood wanted to make a movie about you, what actress would you want playing you? Why?

Reese Witherspoon because she catches my attention. She is about my size (a.k.a. “short”) and she is already Southern.

Give us the number one reason you’re excited to be a part of the SummerHouse team!

Absolutely because it is a part of a team. Also, positively: Lisa Palmer!

What is your favorite thing about being an interior designer?

My favorite thing about being a designer is helping families and clients fall in love with their home and special keepsakes all over again.

Who is your favorite character on a TV show and why?

Loreli Gilmore. I SO relate!

What else do we need to know about you?

I am part time at SummerHouse and am primarily there on Monday, Thursday, and Friday, but will always make an appointment convenient for my client.

Meet Chad at SummerHouse | Oxford

We are thrilled to share the news that we have a couple of new designers at SummerHouse | Oxford! Chad Holman and Jenni Hilbun have officially joined the SHOX squad as Interior Designers, and Maddie Ertle (who you may remember from here) has moved on up to an Interior Designer position as well! Laurie Conway is still killing it as an Oxford designer so we just have a really great team going on up there!

Today, we want to introduce you to Chad! We conducted our usual Q&A with him to get to know him a little better. We think you’re going to love him as much as we do!

SummerHouse Oxford Interior Designer Chad Holman // www.alwayssummerblog.comCan you tell us a little bit about your background? Where you grew up, where you went to school, family, etc…?

I spent most of my formative years in Holly Springs MS where I attended Marshall Academy. After Highschool I attended Memphis College of Art. I am married and in the process of fostering 2 girls. The youngest is one and the oldest is two.

At what point did you realize you were interested in interior design? Elaborate just a tad!

I realized I wanted to be an interior designer at a young age. I remember being no older than ten and much to my parents’ dismay rearranging the living room when no one was around. It has always been my passion. I had no choice in the matter. This is the profession I was born to do.

If you could travel anywhere in the world for a week, where would you go? Why?

I have a severe wanderlust for India. I have traveled extensively, and this is one place that I have always wanted to go but never had the chance. I want to explore the cuisine, culture, landscapes, etc… I imagine its streets lined with spice markets, exotic flowers, and gorgeous textiles… Heaven!

What is the best movie you’ve seen recently? Why’d you like it?

The Shape of Water – It was visually stunning!

What’s your favorite local restaurant and why?

It has to be City Grocery. I love it for the shrimp and grits. Why else?

What is your favorite design publication? 

I love Architectural Digest and Elle Décor. You will always find these on my coffee table at home. I also love Dwell and Paper magazine. I am always scouring the web for great design blogs. Two of my favorites are Apartment34.com and Yellowtrace.com.au.

Give us the number one reason you’re excited to be a part of the SummerHouse team!

Its reputation! I love being a part of such a talented and established team of designers with a design firm with as many accolades as SummerHouse.

What is your favorite thing about being an interior designer?

I love being able to increase the quality of peoples lives. The spaces we live in are a direct reflection of us. Knowing that I create spaces that give my clients a sense of pride or a beautiful calming place to retreat to after a long day makes me happy. It makes all the long hours and hard work completely worth it.

Who is your favorite character on a TV show OR who is your favorite TV personality and why?

What else do we need to know about you?

I feel that the relationship between designer and client is a close one. We are invited into their homes and is some cases become part of the extended “family”. Because of these relationships I love to put something in every room I design that makes the client laugh or at least brings a smile to their face when they see it. This can be something small and inconspicuous. Most of the time its an inside joke between the client and myself. Many people get caught up in the serious aspects of design. I always try to take the time to step back and remember to have fun. I believe it shows in the finished design.

/ / / / / / / / / /

Thank you so much for your time, Chad! It’s a pleasure having you on board. 🙂

Ridgeland Showroom Update

SummerHouse Furniture and Interior Design // Ridgeland, Mississippi // www.summerhousestyle.com

Our Ridgeland showroom has undergone quite an update recently, and we’re so excited to show you all of our new pieces! We update our floor fairly often because, if you didn’t know, we sell directly off our showroom floor! When you walk in and see something you love, that actual item can be yours! No waiting on a piece exactly like it to come in next month. The chair you see is the chair that can go home with you immediately (if you have room in your vehicle!)

We do also offer a white glove delivery service where you can have your new purchases delivered and placed in your home if they are more than your trunk can handle! 😉

So because we sell directly off our showroom floors, we end up with holes. We fill holes almost daily, but sometimes we just need a full out red0! So here’s the most recent Ridgeland redo. (Oxford’s recent redo will be posted next week!)

Are you feeling as inspired as we are to do a family room update?! We love all of this beautiful work by our talented design team!

You can see the entire Family/Media Room gallery here. (And be sure to check back because we do have even more photos to add here soon!) And, in case it’s been a few weeks since you visited our project site, you can now see all the room galleries via the main menu. Major improvement!

We are so glad you chose to stop by here today. Thanks a million! Have a great day!
