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,


…trucking right along!

Hi PARISH friends!

Today, we’re sharing a fabulous install… and some behind the scenes shots sharing what a day with the AFGID girls is like! We have daily insanity and shenanigans that definitely keep us laughing, but also make us think “what the heck are we doing today?!” Last week- we had a snafu with an install and a delivery… and had to take matters into our own hands.

By golly… we were installing this stunning living room and nothing was going to stand in our way.

That’s right… Ashley is our newest truck driver! I’m pretty sure I was doubled over laughing as I took this picture! She was nervous, but handled the truck like a pro (to Birmingham I might add!!) We had two movers join us to do the heavy lifting, so one rode shotgun with Ashley and one rode with me in my car— we had a fun day full of funny conversations!

Once Ashley parked the truck (and carefully avoided the limestone curb), the REAL fun began :)

This stunning sofa table was actually our PARISH shop desk but it is so fabulous here, we just had to part with it! The fun green glass bottles add so much personality to this living room!

We used three sofas to give this space a cozy and comfortable feeling! This sweet family has 3 (yes three!) boys under 5- so we continually joke that each boy has his own sofa! :)

We used a soft greyish blue velvet for two sofas and a linen for the other along with this sweet pair of vintage stools! Who says you have to have a cocktail table? We loved these!

This space is one of those that just make you happy… and COLOR has everything to do with it! The subtle tones of gold, coral, blue, and green are so fresh and young and completely fit the personality of this sweet family! We found/stole these fishing reels from another room- aren’t they cool?

Thanks for joining us on the blog today! If you’re driving around town and see Ashley driving a moving truck… by all means, please yield. :) XOXO

Until next time,



TGIF Parish Friends!!

How is it already August?! This summer has FLOWN by and I cannot believe that school is about to start next week!! Today, we wanted to share some exciting news with everyone… Ashley and Barrett are selling their house and are moving on to their next adventure!! You might have already heard through the grapevine or on Ashley’s instagram, but we wanted to officially announce that 1215 Felder is on the market! :) This house is truly amazing and Ashley has put so much TLC into it, making it the ultimate Cloverdale Cottage! 1215 Felder is located in the charming and historic area of Montgomery, known as Old Cloverdale (for those of you not in Montogmery!!) and with it’s 2300 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a wet bar, and a cozy little back yard it is the perfect house for a new family!! We hope you enjoy the reveal of Ashley’s “after pictures” and if you are new around here, make sure to check out our older posts that show the renovation process… here and here!!
