Designer Spotlight: Summer Thornton

17 Jun

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. Today I am introducing you to Chicago based interior designer Summer Thornton. After working at a high-end European textile company and under several other interior designers, Summer opened her firm in 2007. Summer Thornton blends texture, color and pattern to create smart and soulful surroundings all within her design philosophy of unpretentious, fun, and fresh. Summer’s interiors are traditional but injected with personality and energy. I love her bold designs and know you will too! Take a look.


Can we just take a moment to SWOON over this bedroom? The saturated colors and stripes are so beautiful! Okay, continue on.












I love Summer’s use of color, pattern, and texture. Her designs are fresh and interesting. As I mentioned I love that first bedroom. The use of color and pattern is genius! I love how each space although unique all feel clean, exciting, and inviting. Which is your favorite space? To see more of Summer Thornton’s beautiful work check out her website.

    I’m a huge Summer Thornton fan too. Great image choices. I particularly love the second photo with the pretty, tasteful pops of color. Though the bedroom is incredible as well.
