    Styling bookshelves can be easy if you use pieces you love and stick with a plant. Obviously, filling the shelves with colorful and stylish books is my favorite way to start the process. You don’t have to go overboard with them, just use them in stacks of three and add a colorful accessory on top or lead a great pieces of art behind them to pull the grouping together.

    Pulling from pieces you already have around the house is a great place to start too. Accessories can take on a new look if you just put them in a new grouping sometimes. Add in things you love and don’t be afraid to splurge on a few statement pieces that help to give the overall look the wow factor that you are after!  Today’s Get The Look pulls together great books, colorful art and unique accessories, we hope it inspires you to spend a little time updating your shelving!!

    Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to work with and meet so many wonderful people from many areas of  the design industry. I love sitting down with other designers, vendors and creative types to talk about the day in and day out challenges, tools that really work for our businesses and sharing products that we each love. I sometimes feel like I sit on an island alone since Studio Ten 25 is a small design firm, so having those relationships keep me motivated and positive.  And adding positive people to my life is always at the top of my list.

    I am introducing a new element to Shop Ten 25, our online boutique. We are in the final stages of updating a few things on The Shop and when I started the process, I knew that I wanted to include a few of my favorite people that have become a wonderful part of my life and business. I was once told that “connecting the dots” in life and business will lead me to great experiences and even greater opportunity. When you reach other to others, you quickly realize that there is no room for competition and that it’s all about the relationships and friendships that come from working with others.

    “DESIGNER PICKS” will be the latest addition to Shop Ten 25 when we go live with our updates later this month. So in the meantime, I wanted to introduce the first four designers to curate a collection at Shop Ten 25! We have asked each of them to select a handful of pieces that they love and reflect their personal design style!  As we move into summer, we plan to add a few more designers. AND, of course if you have someone in mind that would be a fit we would love to hear about them!!  Stay tuned, we promise to share more details down the road!

    A few weeks ago I shared a few pics of these gorgeous barrel back chairs after their transformation.  My client knew that she wanted barrel back chairs for her living room but we just couldn’t find the right pieces. Finally, Scout Design Studio came to the rescue and helped us pull these lovely leopard pieces together!

    BEFORE: Just a simple barrel back chair in a dingy brown velvet fabric screaming for an update. They were already on a swivel base but needed to be just a bit higher to work with the scale of the other pieces in the room.





    AFTER: Scout worked their magic and lifted the chairs by adding a high gloss black base, fortunately we were able to keep the swivel feature! This leopard velvet from Duralee Fabrics had been the fabric selection for the chairs from day one and it looks perfect on the chairs! Bold? Yes! But they are the perfect addition to this lofty living space!  We are still installing pieces to pull this space together and hope to have it finalized soon, I can’t wait to share!!

    Spring florals, soft lavenders and bold graphic accents are always a good combination. We love the pretty and plush feel of today’s Get the Look and how easily it can be created! Adding pattern with pillows, texture with art and fun accent pieces are an easy way to take your space up a notch for Spring too!

    Mid-Century modern mixed with a little sleek chic is the best way to describe this University Park home. We love the sleek color palette mixed with classic pieces and a bit of the latest trends that the house has. A soothing master suite, gorgeous sitting room, open kitchen, fancy formal dining room and a cozy family room were the main spaces that we updated in the home. See us pull the space together with the final touches!

    You can watch the video here or over on our Vimeo page to see it and many other installs from The Studio’s latest projects!!

    We are working on a fabulous high-rise space for one of our bachelor clients and it is going to be oh so manly! Imagine this…21st floor, floor to ceiling windows and sprawling views of downtown Dallas. Yea, sounds horrible right? We are knee deep in the design development phase and perfecting the space plans for all of the rooms on the “to-do” list. Beyond presenting a space plan to our client’s, I love pulling inspiration boards together. It is a great way to communicate visually with our clients and it really helps us to stay on track in regards to overall style.

    We are going for a casual, yet sophisticated feel and working with a navy, grey and ivory color palette. Rich wool fabrics, luxurious leathers and a mix of metals will help to bring in the texture we need to layer the sleek accessories and lighting.
