Mill Valley: Summer House

Summer House.....Leather Arm Chairs, Knit "Pouf" Ottoman, Wood Carved Mirror
 Last Friday, I drove over to Marin to drop off materials for a potential project (keeping my fingers crossed!). For those of you not in California, Marin is the county just North of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge. It is beautiful lush green hilly country bordered on the West by the Pacific Ocean and on the East by the San Francisco Bay. 

Since I was so close, I never pass up a chance to wander over to the charming town of Mill Valley. Mill Valley is home to some of my favorite shops, one of which is Summer House. Summer House has great home decor....all of the things I love....and they recently opened an annex which houses home furnishings (upholstery, case goods, lighting, and one of a kind finds....)

Summer House seems to put together that perfect mix of rustic and relaxed, elegant comfort, exotic finds, antiques and custom pieces.

 I thought I would share the wealth....



Work Desk made from Antique Cararra Marble from Italy, Tin Base. 
Detail of Dove Tail Joinery on Marble Table Top....Brilliant! Perhaps my favorite detail in the shop that day. Custom Tables are available through Summer House

Summer House does not have a website, but you can find them here:
21 Throckmorton Ave
Mill Valley, CA 94941-1915 
(415) 383-6695

It is well worth a special trip to pay them a visit!

Also, Remodelista had a great article about them HERE with lots more photos.
(Unfortunately, their blog does not seem to be up and running.)
