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!

We have been so fortunate to have so many wonderful projects in the works this year. Between installations and photo shoots, this summer has flown by and we are looking forward to wrapping up a few more great homes. I’m not as consistent with TheBlog as I have been in the past, I have only wanted to post things that make me happy and really stay true to what Studio Ten 25 is all about.
Our online boutique, Shop Ten 25 is in the process of being updated with new features and I love being able to include so many of the gorgeous pieces in our Studio projects. Today, I wanted to share a few images from our recent project installations. I love showing off the progress of a project, I get pretty giddy when pieces are delivered and the room starts to come together.
Here are a few of our favorites from the past few months, we also share them on our Instagram account. So if your feeling social and want to see what we are up to on a daily basis, that is the best place to see us in action!
The New Rooms Magazine is finally out on newsstands and I am so excited to finally share the details. Our turquoise and orange family home is featured in the issue and I love how they choose to layout the feature. Overall room shots, vignette details and a fabulous inspiration board are all packed into the feature. A big thank you to Melanie Johnson Photography and Hilary Walker for helping me pull the home together for the shoot! I’m beyond excited, I pretty much cleaned out the Alberstson’s by our home.
You can find ROOMS at your local grocery store or book store! The issue is not playing around either, it is full of gorgeous project features and I love how they added inspiration board to each project too. They made it easy to be inspired and source all of the lovely pieces featured too!
We started working on this high rise bachelor pad this past spring and it was in serious need of an update. First, we needed furniture that actually functioned for him. We needed the space to set the tone for the blue & grey color palette that we were using. We recently photographed this space and I can not wait to show it off!
BEFORE: The entry felt stark and the wonderful high ceilings were not being played up. Everything felt short and didn’t really give off a fun bachelor pad vibe.
AFTER: A custom navy lacquered parsons console was the first piece we selected and everything just came together from there. Killer acrylic lamps with a blue accent, bold gold mirror and an bench to soften the space really helped to create a space that works here. The mirror draws you eye up and plays off of the high ceilings while bringing in some much needed texture.
He needed a place to crash while watching T.V. that allowed him to get the most out of the awkward space. So instead of trying to place rectangular pieces in this round room, we worked with the curves of the space and selected a sectional with a curved center!
BEFORE: This room has amazing views of the Dallas Design Center as well as North Dallas so we needed to completely change the configuration to show off that view! The dark and muddy color palette was also doing nothing for the space. It felt dark and completely wrong for our bachelor.
AFTER: Open, airy and completely masculine! Neutral and durable fabric gave us the start we needed to bring in the blue, grey and brown accents that carry through the entire space. Now you can actually enjoy sitting in this space while taking in the view.
I was over the moon excited when D Home selected our Ritz Carlton Bachelor Pad as one of their Texas Paint & Wallpaper Life in Color Contest winners. We submitted a few of our colorful projects early this spring and had our fingers crossed that one of them would catch the eye of D Home and Texas Paint & Wallpaper! Five Dallas designer, including Moi were selected as winners and you can see all of the colorful images in the latest issue of D Home. To be included in a group with amazing ladies like Jan Showers, Tracy Hardenburg, Denise McGaha & Michelle Nussbaumer is flattering to say the least!
Head on over the D Home online to see all of the colorful projects! Or if you live in the Dallas area snag a copy too, this is one fabulous issue!

When Abbe Fenimore’s client told her that his favorite color was red, she wasn’t super excited. “It is my least favorite color,” she says. “Red can be wrong in a lot of ways if it’s not done right.” So she went to work, creating a back wall crafted from cowhide by Edelman Leather. In the event that he might sell the condo one day, the homeowner didn’t want the leather permanently attached to the wall. “We used some major staples. A team comes in occasionally to readjust it because it pulls,” Abbe says. “He loves textures. He’s a car dealer. He’s very into topstitching, and he’s very particular about textures and fabrics.”
We have been gradually installing furniture, art and draperies in our latest bachelor pad project! This place has killer views of Dallas and sophisticated cobalt blue, grey and brown color palette; making it perfect for our bachelor! We started with clean lines and durable fabrics in a neutral color palette for each space. Cobalt blues, sophisticated grays and crazy cool accessories are going to pull it all together.
Here are a few sneak peeks from our latest installation. Once the art, draperies and final touches are in I promise to share more. Follow us on Instagram for all of the details too!!! We love this one so much, that we gave it it’s own hashtag. Search for #andrewblue to see everything bachelor pad!
