The Smith family of Ridgeland celebrates the holiday season in style thanks to help from a talented design duo.

Geri Beth and Allen Smith purchased their Bridgewater home in 2017. With plans for a closet addition, the couple proceeded with an entire house renovation with the assistance of Jackson interior designer Annelle Primos.

Primos’ goal was to create a cohesive space featuring a collected feel with a modern sensibility combining contemporary pieces with carefully edited antiques suited for the young family. Primos’ signature elegance is seen throughout the spaces and the color palette’s calmness, though the homeowners’ personalities are widely evident. “With the home’s open layout and the abundance of windows, each piece they chose was carefully and thoughtfully selected,” Primos notes.

Inspired by Geri Beth’s love of “glam,” the designer chose fabrics with a hint of sheen and accessories with gold touches. She used a polished Venetian plaster finish on the walls and ceilings, adding softness and depth. The furnishings and accessories are from AP Collection, owned by Primos and Amanda Puckett. Both are passionate about discovering and finding treasures and creating once-of-a-kind exclusive pieces. The designer infused color through the beautiful art collection and accessories.
