House Tour: Summer Thornton Design Stunner

This post is going to get me in trouble. Big trouble. Because, while, at first glance, this looks like any gorgeous living room, this stunning space by Summer Thornton Design isn’t a home at all.

It’s a dental office!

And, you see, I was in charge of decorating my husband’s dental office. Honestly, I thought I did a pretty darn good job.

Well, I mean, I thought I did a good job until I saw this dental office, which, let’s face it, is the most insanely beautiful dental office of all time. Now I’m wondering if maybe I could have applied myself a little more.

Needless to say, it is giving me something to aspire to–though this might have to be my office space within the dental office. We can give hubby something a little more masculine. 

This stunning lounge is the perfect place for staff members to cozy up during a break. And it even has a stylish little nod to teeth up there!

The lounge is a great place to pick up a good book!

This takes the kids’ playroom to a whole new level! No torn up Highlights magazines here!

You might look forward to a root canal in this gorgeous exam room! 

Need to use the powder room? No problem! You’ll feel right at home in this incredible bathroom. Needless to say, I have some work to do! Thanks for the inspiration, Summer!

Advance Praise from D.A. Wolf from Daily Plate of Crazy

It is worth noting that Kristy Woodson Harvey is often described as a Southern voice, and indeed she is. But to leave it at that is to underestimate the power and nuance of her storytelling gift — her mastery of dialog to move plot forward, her insights into what makes women tick, and her wit. Rest assured that regardless of where you live or grew up, you will find yourself in Kristy’s writing. “Slightly South of Simple” will have you at turns teary, beaming, and nodding in recognition — as a daughter, a mother, a sister — cheering on her protagonists, Ansley and Caroline. “

In Good Taste: Brittany Ambridge


Interior design photographer Brittany Ambridge certainly has an eye for capturing beautiful things. From the stills department of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix to her tenure at Domino, Ambridge’s knack for making the things beyond her lens shine is clear. One look at these perfectly depicted spaces, and we think you’ll agree!
