Magical Mirrored Furniture

Incorporating mirrored pieces into a space is one of my favorite ways to bounce light around a dark room. Wall mirrors are always one of my favorites, but when I find a gorgeous piece of mirrored furniture I always try to incorporate it into the design.

This master bedroom needed a dresser for the odd nook across from the bed, and since the nook was dark and awkward a mirrored dresser was the perfect solution. Here is a picture of the nook BEFORE, the glare from the windows needed to be addressed and the mirrored dresser that we selected would balance out the light perfectly.

AFTER: The nook became a chic and stylish spot! Soft grey linen drapery panels, a modern graphic pattern on the accent chair and fun accessories pulled created a pretty little nook that perfectly reflects the gorgeous back wall of the bedroom.

#TBT {The Very First}

This past three day weekend gave me a bit of time to organize The Studio a bit. We are getting ready to start a major remodel on our home and deciding what to pack for storage has become a bit of a pain.  The Studio has to be the most challenging space to pack and I am having to narrow down the pile of  project files, fabrics and office supplies to keep with me over the next few months.

Of course I became sidetracked when I found one of my very first projects that helped launch Studio Ten 25! I love this bachelor pad and how bold the color and pattern were. This Downtown Dallas loft opened so many doors for me and it will always be special to me! We converted one of the bedroom closets into a mini-recording studio, commissioned a fabulous watercolor of Eva Mendes and created the perfect crash pad for our client and his friends to hang out in.

 

When it came to decorating this 1,500 square foot loft, he knew exactly what he wanted –  a hip and modern feel with edgy yet comfortable pieces to lounge around on. The bedrooms are minimal yet comfortable and provide a nice place to crash after a late night on the town. But the crowning glory of this loft is the high-tech toys, a pool table, arcade area with Mrs. pac man no less and an in home recording studio that resides in the master closet.

Since it is typical of loft apartments to be bare and industrial, I wanted to provide more texture, color and interest. I combined a variety of different wood tones, bright fabrics and colorful accessories. The effect is warm and trendy, and it avoids the predictable and uninspired look of a matching suite of furniture. By designing a few custom details and evoking a feeling of the great urban surroundings, we softened this loft’s hard edges, brought in tons of color and created a space that has both good looks and the details for an urban social getaway. All I want to know is….Can I be added to the guest list at your next house party?

Peacock Alley {Designer Bed Series}

I am excited to be a part of Peacock Alley’s Designer Bed Series thrilled to share my curated look for the Month of May.  I wanted to create a look that could be used in the guest bedroom of our soon to be remodeled home and instantly fell in love with the Navy Tailored Pique Duvet and shams .

To often, guest bedrooms receive the left over pieces from bedrooms past and are not the priority when selecting new linens. So creating a look with an overall classic feel was the right place to start. Incorporating a hint of the bright fuchsia accents with the throw, abstract art and accessories bring a glamorous and well styled element to the tailored Pique Collection.  If your in the Dallas Design District stop by to see my look in person, it will be set up through the month of May! Shop the look with the pink links below!

Art Deco elements are making a comeback and I love how easily they blend with modern and eclectic pieces. With a mix of bold color, classic lines and glitzy lighting, this formal sitting room is the perfect place to entertain or just give your guests a little something to turn their head at.

Emporium Love {Top Three}

As I posted last week, I am sharing my 3 favorite pieces from Emporium Home this week at Highpoint Market along with 5 other awesome designers. Today is my day to reveal my favorites, but it was not easy to narrow it down to just three. The Emporium Home line is stunning and I can’t wait to incorporate a few of their gorgeous pieces in our own remodel this year.

 

This morning, EH shared one of their favorite project images from my portfolio. They choose this beautiful entry from our latest bachelor pad project and wow, it really does scream Emporium Home!  Shop all of the pieces to help you GET THE LOOK of this sleek blue entry as well as my favorite pieces from Emporium Home.

Big City Glam

I love designing spaces for stylish family in NYC, they are always open to bold accents but know how to keep the overall feel sophisticated. This dining room is going to be beyond fabulous. Plenty of gold leafing, bold geode art prints and killer quartz lamps will do their best to compliment the stunning view.
