Jonathan Adler has a new collection of pillows. The Bobo collection. And we are in love!! These new pillows are different from what we’re used to with Adler. In contrast to his heavy needlepoint pillows (which we are major fans of,) these new Bobo pillows are hand-blocked linen! As the founder of “happy chic,” Mr. Adler has made us extremely happy with these new introductions! Which ones do you like best!? It’s a tough decision…
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
This holiday always makes us think about the beach. The beach makes us think about beautiful beach houses. Beach houses are usually light, bright, and airy. Here are a few of our favorite light, bright spaces from over at Rue Magazine.
We recently receievd our market order from Legacy Bedding, and it is GOR-GEOUS! We are in love with every piece of it! We have several beds on the showroom floor made up with these heavenly threads and everyone that comes in oohs and aahs over how breathtaking they are! Here–you can see what we’re talking about!
As per usual, we are obsessing over the new LonnyMag for this month… Have you seen it? We love the bright, summery spaces that dominate most of it. Perfect for… drumroll please… SUMMER! Here are a few of the items that we carry that made it into the mag. Come shop LonnyMag with us!
Have you been by the store to meet Elish yet? She is Lisa’s amazing new assistant!! (Laurel is starting a new chapter and is no longer a full-timer at the store, but is still doing all of the social media, so she’s still around!)
Elish is a great addition to the SummerHouse team and is fitting right in! Her organization skills, eye for fashion (both in interiors and in wearable fashion), and her cute personality make her a joy to work with! Let’s get to know her a little better, shall we?
SummerHouse: So your name is kinda different but super pretty!! Can you tell us a little bit about the origination of that?
Elish: My name….my mom’s family is Italian and Elizabeth is the trademark family name that gets worked in somehow on every girl’s name. My Dad is Irish, so they compromised and named me Elish which is gaelic for Elizabeth. Hence, the odd name.
SummerHouse: What has been the biggest shock about your new job at SummerHouse?! You’ve only been here a few weeks, but there has to be something that surprised you or caught you offguard!
Elish: I think my biggest shock at Summerhouse was how much of the business side of Interior Design I’d be doing…
SummerHouse: What is your favorite thing to cook and why?
Elish: My favorite thing to cook is either my chicken pesto salad because I made it up and it’s pretty different from traditional chicken salad. Or I love cooking crawfish fettuccine…I have a great recipe that isn’t too hard but tastes great!
SummerHouse: What is your favorite movie? Why?
Elish: Hmmm favorite movie is a tough one…I’d say Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken because I grew up watching it and I’m a sucker for those kinds of movies. Or Last of the Mohicans…I always watch it with my dad and the music is incredible.
SummerHouse: How would you describe your own personal design style?
Elish: My personal design style is better described by the designers I respect…in fashion, as well as interior design. I love Alberta Ferretti, Kelly Wearstler, Zac Posen, Elizabeth & James, Robert Kuo… I’m usually drawn to clean lines broken up by rich textiles, any type of sleek surface like mirrors and metallic finishes, & cool colors or grayed neutrals.
SummerHouse: When you are not partaking in your new favorite hobby, which is to work at SummerHouse, what are your other hobbies?!
Elish: Well I love running and being outside so that’s a pretty big hobby, I love to cook and have people over for dinner, & I have 4 nephews and a brand new little niece that I love to visit!
SummerHouse: Tell us one weird thing about you that we may find interesting, or that not many people know
Elish: One weird thing? So hard to choose….haha Well I am an OCD bed maker. It’s weird. I make mine every morning no matter what. Even if I know I’m going to wash my sheets that night. And I sometimes can’t help myself and make other peoples beds…It makes the whole room look instantly put together!
SummerHouse: Anything else you want us to know?!
Elish: I love working at Summerhouse and I’m thankful I have so many amazing, sweet people to be around everyday!
Have you seen the most recent issue of Delta Magazine?! It just hit stands last week and we are loving it! We particularly love the post entitled “The Coolest Media Room on Earth! OMG!” One of our favorite families, the Blanchard family, showed off their amazing media and exercise room. It truly is one of the coolest we’ve ever seen! Lisa did a great job of making the space modern, yet liveable, don’t you think?
What is your favorite part about this room? We love the color, the huge Dr. Pitt sectional (by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams), the Kelly Wearstler inspired bookshelf, all the Adler, the big lacquer mirrors in the exercise area…. Really, there is nothing about this room that we don’t love!
Be sure to pick up your copy of the May/June issue of Delta at pretty much any bookstore around here! It’s a great issue!
We are completely in love with the new Au Natural collection from Schumacher! In their own words, this collection is “a combination of luxuriously quiet and surprisingly dramatic neutral patterns and textures.” Now if THAT doesn’t scream SummerHouse, we don’t know what does!! It was hard to narrow it down to just a few, so here are more than a few of our favorites…
After seeing all of those, we know you want to see the whole entire collection! Here you go What pattern is your favorite? So hard to choose!
