All Hail Leopard!

All hail leopard! We’ve gotta say. A space just isn’t complete without a touch of leopard. Don’t you agree? Here are a few of our favorites “spots” from our recent installations!










Throw Back Thursday #TBT

‪#‎TBT‬ to when I took a leap of faith and opened the doors to Studio Ten 25, way back in 2008. I miss this space, it was so simple and things were new and fresh! Now I struggle to keep the many piles around the Studio in order. But, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Checking In

Happy 2016 everyone! We are back in The Studio tomorrow and ready to hit the ground running with many great projects and transformations!

Everything has been red, green and full of sparkle the past few weeks. So, its a little sad when the beautiful Christmas decorations come down. Love to see a client’s home full of light, love and happiness! This shot of our client’s dining room looks stunning, its nice to see that removing Christmas decorations can leave a room feeling complete if you just have the right mix of fresh flowers!

Glam Pad {Installation Day}

We recently designed a 3-story home in Dallas that grabs your attention from the moment you walk through the front door. Bold color, excellent use of space, and fearless use of prints abound throughout the entire home. Press play to see us put the final touches on this glam pad!

Fabulous Fabrics {From Minted}

Did you know that Minted now has a huge collection of Home Decor including fabric, pillows and draperies? I love that they have now expanded their independent artist prints into the home collection too, it give you the opportunity to find pieces that are unique and have a story to them.

Of course I found a print that I loved and since Fall is here, I thought it was the perfect time to change out our duvet cover for the season. I wanted something bold in pattern, but I wanted to color palette to work with the soft blues and greens in the room.  I fell in love with Painterly Splash from Alethea and Ruth’s Store  because of the soft watercolor pattern and deep teal accents. I love the way it helps our master bedroom feel a bit more fun and colorful too.














Friday Details

Details make all the difference when pull a space together, don’t cha think? Even though I am a big fan of bold color, pattern and funky textures I still think keeping some of your details around a space crisp and minimal  create the perfect combination. Draperies are the best way to add a bit of detail to your space. I like to keep my drapery panels sleek and simple when going over the top in a space.  But sometimes you just have to bring a bit of detail to something simple to make it perfect!

Looking Up On A Monday

The view from below in this master bedroom makes me happy. I think wallpaper on the ceiling is always a good idea!!! If you are looking to mix it up a bit and try something “off the wall” , adding wallpaper to your ceiling will make your four walls come to life. Balance a busy pattern out with a rug that compliments the pattern and color. Or, go with a tonal pattern that will allow for a more sophisticated and tailored feel.
