How is it Wednesday already? We have been working on quite a few awesome projects over the past few weeks, so my poor blog has been a bit neglected. I think it’s only fitting that I go big with a new project installation video, don’t you?
If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you have noticed the shots from our latest bachelor pad project. Installation day was so crazy, and our client was pretty easy going when it came to accessorizing with bold pillows, sophisticated bedding and gold leafed accents. Now you know we had to document the big day and show off the entire space with short video. The images are being edited and I am ready to show it off, so sit tight. Take it all in…it’s full of manly man goodness!

We are getting close to finalizing the installation at Dallas’ new children’s boutique, Little Hipsters. The wallpaper is up, the draperies are hug and the custom fixtures are in place. I am in love with all of the fun details throughout the space and can’t wait to see all of the chic little dresses and t-shirts fill the space!! Here are a few pictures of the latest progress.
This master bedroom was the perfect balance of sophistication and edgy chic. Our clients wanted a master bedroom that would be a retreat at the end of a long busy day. We started by having the room painted Benjamin Moore’s Grey Owl to coordinate with the Clarke & Clarke’s Cameo wallpaper that we selected. The combination of new paint and wallpaper on the back wall instantly updated the space and gave us the perfect starting point for the room’s design.
BEFORE: Nothing but the bed here folks. It was pretty pitiful, and they eventually used an empty printer box as a nightstand. Poor things, they really needed a place to relax and of course to at least place a lamp! Builder standard peachy walls were the worst part of the room. We loved the existing bed they had, so we decided to change the walls, add a subtle metallic wallpaper to the back wall and rock out the grey and aubergine color palette.
AFTER: I love how tailored the headboard looks now. The white lacquer nightstands, all white bedding and white Mongolian fur bench gave the room a bright and updated feel. Since we didn’t want to go overboard with the aubergine accent color, we kept it simple with just a few pieces. The glass lamps were the perfect scale for the night stands and mixed well with the textural pattern of the mirrors. A few glitz pillows and a luxurious throw blanket were the finishing touches.

When Rue Magazine asked to include one of our latest projects in their Anniversary issue, I about fell over. I have flipped through the online pages of this chic magazine from the day it launched, so to be included in such a special issue was unreal! Not only is having one of my projects included a great honor, but being named one of their “Top 7 young designers to watch” blew me away. To be included in such a diverse and talented group is special. We each bring our own flare for design to our projects, and I love seeing how other designers work too.
You must check out the issue, if you haven’t already. And of course take a look at one of our chic and colorful projects too! We loved putting so much love into this young family’s first home together. Gorgeous navy layered with & gradient grays set the tone for the bold fuchsia, turquoise and deep purple accents that pull each room together.
Don’t forget to check out all of the fabulous pieces, Rue allows you to shop for you favorite pieces directly from their pages!
A HUGE thank you Heather Hawkins for creating such beautiful images, they perfectly reflect the feel of our client’s home.
It was so nice to wake up to Design Chic’s Tuesday blog post! It always brightens my day when others are inspired by our work and pretty pieces from Shop Ten 25. I have been a big fan of their blog for quite a while now, and being featured is flattering! If you haven’t discovered Design Chic’s blog, you must pop over for great design inspiration!!
We recently had one of our spaces photographed for an upcoming publication and I CAN NOT wait to see the end result. So, I thought it would be fun to share a few details from the home until we can show the whole things off!!! All images via: Melanie Johnson Photography for Studio Ten 25
We have been working on a super cool children’s boutique here in Dallas and I can’t wait to show off more details. Our client had this fabulous pink velvet bench that worked perfectly in another space. But, it also was the perfect piece for the new dressing room at Little Hipsters Boutique!! So, we found a fun bold tropical print and had the bench upholstered to work with the new space.
Here are the BEFORE & AFTER pictures of the bench. I love the large scale Jardin print and bold color palette, it is going to be fab in the boutique’s dressing room!
Yes, I said Glamazon!! We have launched the new look at Shop Ten 25 and I am so in love with all of the new pieces. This pink agate Glamazon Lamp was actually an idea we had for a Studio Ten 25 project that didn’t work out, so when the right project came along we jumped!
We used two of these gorgeous acrylic pieces in Lash Maxx’s new studio space and they were the perfect pop of pink! We mixed things up and selected a black shade to tie in with the overall black and white basics of the space.
Acrylic base, large pink agate with gold leafed edges and a whole lotta glam!!! You can snag your Glamazon Lamp HERE!!
Accessorizing is one of the last items on my to-do list when finishing up a project. I love using books, tray and pillows to help pull a space together. Today, I wanted to share a few of my go to tips for using accessories to pull it all together using pillows. Pillows are the perfect way to bring in color, pattern and texture!
