ABOUT LISA PALMER – owner/principle designer
From the time she graduated high school, Lisa has been honing her design skills. She traveled abroad, soaking in the architecture and ambiance before going to college at the University of Southern Mississippi where she earned a degree in Interior Design with a minor in Art. She began her career by heading up the residential division of a large commercial/residential design firm before starting her own interior design business in 1997. Since opening her first interior design firm, Lisa has produced a number of commercial and residential projects for clients across the Southeast, including Atlanta, Memphis, Destin and Naples, Florida, among others.
Compelled by a lack of classic, modern and clean traditional furniture pieces in the area for her design projects, Lisa made the decision to open her own retail store called SummerHouse. However, her dream was put on hold when the store was destroyed by fire in 2005. Not to be discouraged, Lisa reopened the store in a new and larger location in 2006. The showroom is a bright, light-filled space and a mecca of streamlined comfort. SummerHouse boasts 6,700 square feet of luxe home furnishings and accessories, punctuated by works of established southern artists such as Paul Edelstein, Carol Cox Peaster, Connie Chapman and Dyann Gunter.
Lisa’s passion is working with her clients, getting to know the families and learning how they live, entertain and function within their environment. Whether it is their primary residence or a second home, she works hand-in-hand with the architect, contractor or homeowner to achieve a stunning end result.
With an appreciation for the old and a love for the new, Lisa likes to work with antiques as well as modern pieces, creating classic rooms with a modern twist. She also designs her own pieces, working with talented master craftsmen such as Brian Smyda and Mike Williams. Lisa’s designs are always visually intriguing as well as comfortable and functional, with close attention to detail, something that Lisa believes makes a room personal and unique. And leave it to Lisa to always throw in her trademark–an unexpected twist.
SummerHouse projects have been published in Elle Decor, Portico Jackson, Delta Magazine, Northside Sun, Mississippi Magazine, From House to Home magazine and VIP Jackson
