Old Is New

It is a great feeling to have all new furniture, but that isn’t always an option these days. We are fortunate to have so many local vintage stores here in Dallas to find unique pieces. These vintage barrel chairs were the perfect pieces for this client’s living room, and a bit of leopard fabric always does the trick too!  Images: Heather Hawkins Photography. You can see more images from this stunning Dallas home on Domino.

Budget Decorating Tips {Real Simple}

Real Simple reached out to me and 9 other designers for insight on how to create a stylish home without breaking the banks.  You can find my tip under #4 on the list.

#4: Shop Your Own Home

Sometimes you don’t have to buy anything to decorate a space. “Make the most of your existing pieces,” says interior designer Abbe Fenimore. “Move things around or relocate them to another room, where they could change or help elevate the look. You’d be surprised at how versatile your furniture is.”

Design Don’ts

This Month’s Home Team feature in The Dallas Morning News is all about what not to do when designing your home. We are sharing a few of our tips on how to keep from making those common mistakes. All images: Melanie Johnson Photography for Studio Ten 25

“When you go into as many homes as an interior designer does, you’re bound to see your share of design mistakes. Too much clutter, rugs in the wrong size, mismatched furniture — they’ve seen it all. The good news: Many of the problems are easy to solve. Even better, with a bit of planning — and advice from our Home Team experts — the costly and unsightly mistakes are easy to avoid.”

It can be tempting to make all your purchases from one place and be done with it, but don’t, Abbe Fenimore says.

“Purchasing all of your furniture from the same source or same set is a big no-no,” she says. “You do want the pieces to coordinate and the room to feel cohesive, but you don’t want everything to match perfectly.” It’s hard to create depth and personality in a space if all the pieces look the same.  “Don’t try to re-create a look from your favorite store. There is a good chance that your space will look nothing like it and will always feel like something is missing,” Fenimore says.  Instead, shop around and take your time putting your space together.

Filling a room with family pieces adds history and character, says Fenimore. “Most of the time, you find them hidden in a room that isn’t used or under a pile of boxes in the garage,” she says of inherited furniture. Even if a piece isn’t exactly your taste, if it’s the right scale, there’s a way to make it work.“Having the piece refinished, painted or updated with new hardware can make all the difference and breathe new life into it,” Fenimore says.

On The Shelf

If your not into junking up your bookshelves, but still want a completed, look today is your lucky day. Using fabric or wallpaper on the back of bookshelves is a great go-to when making your shelves look complete . Select a pattern that is simple and neutral if you want to go with bold books, art and accessories on your shelves. If minimal is the look your going for,  the wallpaper can have a bit more flare with pattern and color.  From bold and beautiful to simple yet chic, hopefully these stylish shelves will inspire you.

Modern – Masculine – Monday

Monday is here and I wanted to show off a few of our favorite modern and masculine details. I do love overall room shots, but it is all in the detail of each pieces and a perfectly styled vignette that make it all come together. Leather, hide, nail heads are just a few of the details that make a modern masculine space perfect.  Images Via: Melanie Johnson Photography for Studio Ten 25

Luxe Interiors & Design {Vanities}

Thank you LUXE Interiors + Design​ for featuring our Ritz project in your “15 Rooms With Stunning Vanity Tables“. We loved going bold with this red lacquer vanity in our Ritz Carlton project. Since we were limited on space in this guest room, the vanity doubles as a nightstand and a great place for guest to sit and get ready too.

Downtown Modern & Minimal

I know it is a bit cliche to design a modern Downtown loft with sleek lines, minimal accessories and modern fabric. But, I love the overall feel and when looking out of the floor to ceiling windows and seeing the gorgeous Downtown views it becomes special. This Downtown Dallas loft was born to show off it’s gorgeous views from the inside without taking away the wow factor. So, we kept the overall look minimal and modern and loved the final feel of the cliche look that we wanted to achieve!  All Images: Melanie Johnson Photography for Studio Ten 25

Before & After {Small Dining}

Love seeing one of our small dining spaces BEFORE & AFTER featured on House Beautiful Magazine​ online this week!

 

HB BA

 

The Clients: Newlyweds and first-time homeowners seeking a stylish, modern look.

The Project: A small dining area off of the kitchen.

The Flooring & Walls: We started by replacing the carpet with dark espresso hardwoods, swapping out the dated lighting, and bringing in a fresh color palette of black and white with pops of turquoise and yellow to liven up the space.

The Lighting: The modern drum light fixture and simplistic white silk shades round out the space without taking over visually.
