Good Friday Fun

In honor of Good Friday, how about some good fun pictures?  I hope everyone has a “good” Friday and a fabulous Easter weekend!  Get ready because these are really FUN :)

Starting with Scalamandre’s zebra wallpaper in green.

My mom has been talking about getting this wallpaper for her powder room for years… She’s all talk though ;) I also love Visual Comfort’s Quatrefoil flush mount light with it in this entryway!

[Schumacher’s Chenonceau wallpaper in Charcoal]

Talk about a fun wallpaper… Quadrille’s Henriot Floral is super fun.  There’s a lot of fun going on in this bedroom designed by John Knott & John Fonda featured in a recent issue of House Beautiful.

If this isn’t a fun bathroom then I don’t know what is!  That mirror alone is makes me happy :)

Ruthie Sommers designed this hallway with black lacquered walls and neon artwork.

And last but not least, a bedroom covered in Sister Parrish fabrics in shades of red, white, & blue… how patriotic.

Picture this… the cutest nursery

It seems like so many people are getting pregnant at the exact same time… now.  We’re literally working on three different nurseries at the moment.  But I had to share with you the scheme for the cutest nursery ever.

Elephants + blue & white + kelly green accents = ADORABLENESS

Starting with Lulu DK for Schumacher “Parade” fabric

Add lots and LOTS of Brunschwig & Fils’ “Les Touches” in Blue

An accent wall featuring a blue and white trellis wallpaper… Probably one of these adorable Thibaut designs…

The amazing Madeline Weinrib’s Ziggy chevron rug in what color?  You guessed it, BLUE.

Then top it off with (my favorite part, of course) Kelly Green accents like this Shades of Light bamboo floor lamp

Perfectly Pecky

summerfield

I’m having a major fetish with pecky cypress ceilings right now… I’ve always loved architectural details/accents that involve raw wood or beams, but the pecky cypress has to be one of my faves.  Maybe one day we will have a client who feels the same way.  Until then I will keep on admiring these pictures that capture the rustic beauty.  A recent Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles issue included an article on the gorgeous home of Mary Prillaman of Holland & Company.  Susan Ferrier (of McAlpine Booth & Ferrier) helped design her home, which is shown in these first three pictures.

Outdoor Dine Time

This past weekend the weather was absolutely gorgeous in Atlanta.  It definitely has me excited about Spring and having a tan line!   Grilling out and sitting by the pool/lake are some of my favorite things to do.  And it’s almost that time of year here in the south.

Perfection in a front door…

This picture deserves a post of it’s own.  Shingle siding makes me weak in the knees.  And those planters with the round boxwoods… Ahhh.  I love the gray paint color, white shutters, stone pavers.  Not sure who is going to sit in those random klismos chairs, but I’ll take them!  Source unknown, found on Pinterest.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

As we all know by now, green is my absolute favorite color.  And Emerald green is the color of the year.  So St. Patrick’s Day is extra special…  I hope everyone drinks some green beer today!!!  Happy St. Patty’s Day!

St. Patrick's Day, summerfield

Antique Mirror Again

I think I’ve already done a post about my love for antique mirror.  But I found some more pretty pictures to share with you.  Also, I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of this Foxed mirror cocktail table to arrive from West Elm:

West Elm foxed mirror coffee table

They told me that it would arrive at the end of February.  And then I got an email from West Elm saying the backorder was pushed back until the end of April.  I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever get it :(  I have not had a coffee table in my apartment.  Ever. I’ve only lived in it for 8.5 months).  I have been focusing on trying to be smart and waiting for the right piece.  And I thought I found it.  So please, West Elm, send me my table!

Needless to say it is no longer available even for backorder (what a shame!).  I placed the order in February when it was on sale.  However, the Foxed mirror side table is still available and just as pretty!

New Runner and Good As New Chair

I finally got a runner for the long hallway in my apartment. I’m sure the people who live in the unit below me are grateful. What do y’all think? Black & white + Chevron = Love it! I got it from one of our vendors, but West Elm and Urban Outfitters have similar options.

I also wanted to share the miraculous restoration of a very broken chair. One of my brother’s friends leaned back in one of the dining chairs at my parents cabin and this happened:

But I took it to the Touch Up Guy here in Atlanta and he literally made it good as new! You can’t even tell it was ever broken. Impressive, isn’t it? He even put steel rods in it. Pretty much good as new:

Peek Inside Summerfield

Finally, after like 14 months of a blog called Summerfield, I’ve decided to give you a peek inside THE Summerfield.  For those of you who do not know (or those of you who have not read About Wheeler Lewis, which I just noticed I hadn’t been updated in over a year, oops!) I will fill you in.  The “Summerfield Road House”, as my family likes to call it, is a house in Selma, Alabama that has been in my mother’s family for over a century.

summerfield, Selma, Al

You can probably tell from the picture that nobody has lived in it in a while :).  We visit the house often and spend every Thanksgiving in it.  It will always be a very special place for my family.   My grandfather and great aunt grew up in the house.  When my mom and her four siblings were growing up, their grandmother lived in the house.  Sometimes they refer to it as “Granmama’s house” (with a very distinct small town Alabama accent).

I can’t wait for the daffodils to bloom!  So pretty.  Selma gets super hot in the summer time though.

Above and below is a shot of the entry.  I was standing in the parlor when I took the picture.  The front door is to the right.  Straight ahead, you can see into the dining room.

THE PARLOR.

This room has burn marks on the hardwood floors from where the Yankees tried to burn the house down in the Civil War.  Every time I bring friends to the house I lift up the rug and show them.  Pretty cool, huh?

Needless to say, the window treatments have all been around for a while!  And notice the paint colors?  I have no idea when was the last time it was painted, but it hasn’t been in the last 26 years (in my lifetime).

Baby blue walls, anyone?  I can honestly say that I never really noticed that the walls were baby blue until I started taking these pictures.

I’m not even sure what this type of window treatment is called?  They’re not curtains, but they’re not shades…
