Houzz Love

I am so thankful to have so much support from others in the design industry when it comes to including my projects in features. Houzz.com has always been a great place to connect with other designers and those wanting to be inspired for their own design project!  Houzz recently included three of our fun projects in their site features. They sure do know how to make a girl feel good!!! Thank you for the love, Houzz!!!

 

“9 reasons to pick a pattered lampshade”   I loved working on this newlywed’s first home and this room was all about the details! A great mix of pattern and textured layered on soothing white pieces really brought in the chic feel they were after.

“10 Creative new uses for leftover material”  We were running low on funds when it came down to accessorizing this downtown loft. So we pulled these leftover pieces of bold fabric and framed them in affordable and sleek frames from Ikea to pull in a bit of color that the space needed.  I love how modern and sleek they look with the zebra rug and bold pillows!

“Why a blue & white scheme will never let you down”  This kid friendly living room was the perfect place to entertain as well as room with versatile pieces that allowed for toy storage.  The final result, an updated living room that could easily transition from a playroom to a place for mom & dad to relax!

Little Hipster’s Bench

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!

Glamazon

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!!

How To {Accessorize}

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!

Finishing Touches {Project Installations}

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!

ROOMS {On Newstands Now}

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!

Life In Color {Red Dawn}

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!

Abbe Fenimore

Location of Project: The Tower Residences at the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, Texas

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.”

 

Blue Bachelor Pad

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!

Masculine & Tailored Bedrooms

Matouk recently posted a few of their favorite masculine & tailored bedrooms on their blog. I am excited that they asked to include our Dallas Ritz Bachelor Pad in the round up. They reached out to a handful of designers for tips on how to create a sophisticated and masculine bedroom, and I love all of the ideas!  You can head on over to The Matouk Blog to see more masculine rooms and tips on how to pull the look together in your home!!

 

“Abbe Fenimore, the designer behind Dallas-based firm Studio Ten 25 used a rich red and brown color palette to give this bedroom a distinctly masculine appeal. She adds, “The striped wall and custom headboard provide a striking and bold look, and the tone on tone bed is softened with fur pillows to add an element of comfort and luxury.”
