There is nothing better than being recognized by others in my industry. Houzz recently released their Best of for 2014 and Studio Ten 25 is on the list!!! We have been awarded Best of Design based on our work in 2013 as well as Best of Remodeling for our Kid Friendly project!!!!! We have loved being a part of the Houzz community and look forward to sharing more of our work in 2014!!
When House Beautiful asked me to share “the most colorful spot” in my home, I jumped at the chance! I am not afraid of color, it is something that has always been of my favorite pieces of design development. Mixing textures, colors and scale is what makes design fun for me. Our sitting room was a huge eyesore when we purchased our home and it has taken about 4 years for me to finally create a space that I love seeing everyday when I walk into our front door. The previous owner of our home was a bachelor and had a pool table in the room. It took me over a year to convince my husband that the space had no chance of becoming a “game room/ bar”. Seriously, he thought I would eventually give in. Now, the room is one of my favorites in our home and I am beyond excited to see featured!! Head on over to Housebeautiful.com to see more details on the room, and of course I have to show off a few more shots of the space here too!!!
I love seeing how other designers style their coffee tables! Mandy from Waiting on Martha does a fabulous job at styling and today she is showing off her own coffee table. Of course I am partial to it, she has included Shop Ten 25′s white lacquer box with a green agate. These little boxes have become one of my favorite accessories and have started to make their way onto most of the table tops in my own home!!

Seeing how-to pieces or articles online about how to take what you have and make it work have always appealed to me. So I am really excited that She Knows asked me to chime in on how to create a beautiful bookcase. Other than stressing out over the right paint color, bookshelves are one of the top pieces that my clients worry about styling. You don’t have to go overboard and I think it is really important to incorporate pieces that make you happy and bring a little color and texture to the room. I love that I was able to include a few bookshelves from our portfolio! Enjoy and happy styling.
One of my favorite gift guides for the Holiday seasons is finally out and it is FABULOUS!!! To & From Magazine has quickly become the go-to source for the perfect gift. Shop Ten 25 is excited to be involved with the magazine and to have so many of our pieces included throughout the gift guide. I also had the change to pull together a few of my favorite Rustic Chic gifts in the “For The Home” section too, you know I had to throw in gold leafed antlers!!
So if you are ready to get your shop on, this is one of the best one stop shopping pieces to cover everyone on your list this year.
I love finding a way to make a fabulous piece work with multiple looks. These days we all want our investment pieces to be versitile enough so that we can change out a few furniture pieces and accessories as we tire of them. I love this silk Monarch Fire rug from the new Alexander McQueen Collection at The Rug Company. The tonal reds make the for the “perfect red” color way and the kaleidascope butterfly pattern soften the bold color by adding a sophisticated yet whimsical feel.
Since red can be a color that takes over a room, I thought it would be fun to show off a few looks using furniture, art and accessories to help create a space around the piece.

Seeing others create amazing looks with Shop Ten 25 pieces always makes me happy. Recently, the gorgeous Maya from The MCB Project has been creating killer collages for her “Frame Of Mind” series we are blown away! Here is my favorite look, of course I am drawn to the bold color, chic graphics and that yummy yellow outfit!
