We have had our hands full with installations and long to-do lists the past few weeks.  Seeing pieces make it to their new home always makes us happy, and I know our clients are happy the wait is over! This guest room has come together little by little over the past few months. Unfortunately it has taken a back seat to the other rooms in the home, but now we are finally pulling it together! I love the black and white color palette that we started with and with the addition of the emerald green accent color, it is really starting to look fabulous!!

Now that fall has arrived and the warmer summer temperatures are beginning to cool down a bit, it is time to start thinking about updating your home for the new season! Making small changes throughout your home without completely redecorating can be easily accomplished. Peacock Alley has been my go-to resources for linens and bedding when working with our design clients.  So when they asked me to show of our master bedroom fall updates using their new Braga collection, I jumped at the chance!!!

 

You can see all of at the fabulous BEFORE & AFTER details on the Peacock Alley blog today. And if you are looking for something easy that can transition you into fall easily, the Braga collection is perfect!! All of the pieces that we used in our fall updates are linked on the post and  you can even snag Shop Ten 25′s new Glamazon Lamp too!!!

BEFORE: Our summer bedding is bright and light weight. I love that we can easily change out a few pieces to warm up the space and create a few more layers for the chilly fall temps!

AFTER:  I love the addition of the Braga collection pieces for fall. The king shams and king blanket bring in a casual look and the linen with frayed edges is beyond fabulous!!! The gorgeous agate Glamazon lamps, a few new throw pillows and that gorgeous turquoise mohair throw blanket really bring in the cozy!  Don’t cha think?

The Alpha Delta Pi Sorority House at The University of North Texas was in serious need of an update.  And, of course we are super excited to see the transformation featured on Seventeen.Com this week!!

When the sorority contacted me to help with their remodel, I knew this was a project that I had to consider. After doing a walk through and going through the to-do list, I knew it was going to be a fit. Sorority house are typically designed with a more traditional color palette and lots dark heavy furniture to accommodate all of the members. My sorority house in college was the same, a mix of random pieces that didn’t fit the space properly. This house was no different when we started the design plan and the oversized and worn out furniture really needed an updated.

The girls wanted a modern and bright color palette that worked with the official azure blue and white colors of the sorority. The entry was dark and didn’t have any personality. We painted all of the trim a soft white and used an updated greige paint color to brighten up the dark space. Clarke & Clarke Augustus wallpaper in azure blu perfectly mixes the traditional trellis pattern with a modern feel that the girls were going for.

FORMAL DINING ROOM / KITCHEN BEFORE

The kitchen was the biggest update in the house. We removed the wall that separated the formal dining room and the kitchen to allow for larger groups and events. We decided to incorporate a large center island with built in storage and plenty of seating for them to entertain as well as gather for meals during the day.  New pantry lockers provide each of the girls that live in the house a place to store groceries. Updated appliances, new built in china cabinets and sleek cornice boards were also elements that helped to pull the large space together.

MAIN LOUNGE AREA BEFORE

 In the main lounge area, we needed to incorporate plenty of seating in the main lounge area as well as storage and pieces that could be easily moved around to accommodate different groups.  We started with a completely new floor plan for the room by relocating the existing TV from the corner to the side wall. This allowed us to open up the room and bring in a seating arrangement that allowed the ladies to conduct meetings, hang out or host events. Accent chairs, x benches and an ottoman coffee table brings in plenty of extra seating and allows for great conversation with larger groups.  All of the finishes and fabrics are durable and with the azure blue front and center, the girls can have pride in their sorority with out going overboard on the sorority’s symbols and colors.

Pillows are one of my favorite ways to bring in color & pattern to a space! They can be easily changed out each season and can range in price to help keep you budget in check. I love keeping my favorite pillows out year round, but adding a few new to mix up the look through the year! Here are a few of our favorite pillow pairings from The SHOP TEN 25 Fall Lookbook! We hope you feel inspired to mix it up around your home this fall!!

I love when our clients are open to going bold with the spaces in their home. We have been working on the living room, master, entry and roof top patio for this fabulous Dallas Farmer’s Market town home (can’t wait to share), but the guest room has been our latest room to pull together. The graphic Kelly Wearstler Channels wallpaper was the first thing we started with. We knew that we wanted a basic black and white color palette, but didn’t really get much past that at the time. How do you make something so aggressive work…you just go for it really.

So, here are a few of the installation photos of the room so far. Next week will be a big install week at the house and I can’t wait to show off the WOW details that this guest room will have!

It’s here!!! The 2014 Fall lookbook for Shop Ten 25 is live! We have pulled together a handful of fabulous tips, inspiration and included a few of our vendors and favorite designers to help us get your home ready for fall. When I started Shop Ten 25 in 2008 with a $100 e-commerce template, I had no idea that it would take off and become a huge part of my life. We are still a small exclusively online boutique, and I love that I am able to fill The Shop with pieces that I love and would actually use in my own home.

We hope you enjoy the lookbook, and we look forward to bringing you more inspiration and design tips as the seasons change!  I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our amazing vendors that keep us inspired and of course to all of the designers out there that work with us to bring great style to their own clients.

And now….it’s time to show it off!!!
