Summer lovin… (A work in progress!)

Hi PARISH friends!

Happy Friday! To celebrate, we’re having a giveaway! Checkout our instagram @parishshoppe for the details! :)

As we bid farewell to the summer, and welcome football season… oops- the fall season, we thought we would share a fun job we are working on in Alys beach! Remember this stunning house? Well, we’re back and are adding a fab seating area and playroom… and we are having lots of fun with it! Don’t you just love when a job doesn’t feel like work? :) We sure do!

Alys Beach!

This makes me want to grab my beach bag and head for the coast!

We have added a fun seating area behind this living room for a sweet spot to relax and gaze at the sandy Florida shore! This is what we’re going for- stay tuned for some “after shots!”

Living Room Inspiration BoardWe are also working on a sweet playroom with a cute, coastal vibe! I can only imagine all of the fun memories that will be made in this space!

Playroom Inspiration BoardFun, right? I’m practically swooning over this lantern… and nightstand… and teepee!! Oh my, I love it all! This space will have a beachy futon and a pair of cable knit poufs so that it will double as a lounging area and a playroom! Plus… forget about scary toy bins- how lovely is this bookcase? Barbie- meet your new home! :)

We are so excited to see these spaces come together for our precious clients! Have a great weekend everyone- and don’t forget to checkout our instagram for a fun giveaway today! XOXO

Until next time,


color me happy… (a work in progress!)

Happy Thursday PARISH fans!

It’s no secret that over the past few months, we have been busy little ladies!! We have truly been blessed with oodles of fun clients that make our jobs feel less like work and more like fabulous adventures! We truly love what we do! Today, we want to share some highlights from a “work in progress” that we can’t stop daydreaming about! Install day is just around the corner and we are thrilled!

This client (and friend) is one of our favorites!! She and her family (including 3 little boys) are all about playing and relaxing in their home and enjoying each other’s company. We wanted her space to be fresh, fun, and very livable…. and COLORFUL! This new home is filled with natural elements and textures including pecky cypress, stone fireplaces, exposed brick, and lots of dark hardwoods. Ashley has a special knack for knowing where to soften the space and where to really embrace the heavy finishes in order to make an impact.

These are just a few of our selections for the Living Room! We wanted this space to feel very “easy.” As with every job, our main goal is to make the client happy and feel comfortable! By using slipcovers, minimal pops of color, and timeless patterns including ticking stripes (our favorite!), the space feels sophisticated and comfy. Three (yes three!) sofas and two swivel gliders will soften the room and serve as lots of seating for this sweet growing family!

OB-wise playroom

For a family with three boys under the age of 5, a fabulous playroom is a MUST! Who knew carpet tile could be so much fun!?! Long gone are the days of scary, dirty playroom floors… These tiles can be removed and replaced if they get a little too much love! We have a fun white (sunbrella) window seat cushion in the works that will have funky lime piping and will be topped with oodles of funky pillows!! We have no doubts that this space will be a hit with all of those sweet boys!!

OB-wise 3

These are a few of our selections for the kitchen! We loved the idea of a table top that could handle all of the spilled drinks, sippy cups, and daily activities that come with children… and ZINC was the answer! We paired this fun oval zinc table with french leather chairs in a fab persimmon color! The juxtaposition between the straight, stiff lines of the table with the curves of the french chairs is to die for… and the egg branch chandelier is the cherry on top! We cant wait to show you this finished kitchen!!


We hope you all found some inspiration for your next project! Have a great week and stay tuned for another job-in-progress teaser next week!



Hopping Forward to Mother’s Day!

Hey friends! We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter with your families! Jessica enjoyed a beautiful day in the country with her family while Ashley’s family gathered in Rosemary Beach. Wright and I headed to Rosemary Beach as well and even though it was cold and rainy we all made the best of it and had fun regardless!

Cates and Rett enjoyed an egg on the Western Green in Rosemary! These little bunnies are too cute!

Jessica and her sister, Laura Ashley, celebrated Easter with their newest family member, Annie!


We hope all of you had a wonderful time celebrating the resurrection with your family and friends! Now that Easter is over it is time to move on to Mother’s Day! Recently, Elizabeth Adam’s of Ex Voto Vintage, contacted Ashley about a fun Mother’s Day event at her showroom here in Montgomery! We are super excited about this and we hope all of her our friends in the area will join us this Wednesday for the fun!


Until next time!
