Small spaces can be tricky and little overwhelming when trying to make the most of the space. When Ligne Magazine asked me to share a few tips on how to make the most of two compact spaces, I was ready to chat! Our client’s small off kitchen dining area and dark narrow entry were a bit of a challenge. But with a few creative moves, we were able to open both spaces up and create a space that our client’s were happy to show off!

Old Man Winter isn’t showing any signs of letting up this Winter. Although temperatures here in Texas have been in the 70s this past week, we are finally getting cooler temperatures…but it will be short lived. So while the chilly air makes it way into Dallas, I will be throwing a few logs in the fireplace! I love the smell of a wood burning fireplace & cuddling under my favorite faux fur blanket with my puppies. I’m sure most of us are ready for signs that Spring is on the way, but in the meantime here are a few of our favorite pieces to keep you warm!
Grey Velvet Chair | Blakewell Firescreen | Serpent Andirons | Metallic Cow Hide Rug | Hailey Lanterns | Julip Logs | White Faux Mink Throw | Landry Firescreen | Faux Mink Pouf | Faux Chinchilla Pillow | Dog Andirons
Loved seeing one of Pure Wow’s editors write up about Lash Maxx on their site today! Caroline received the perfect set of fluffy lashes from our client Claria recently. She of course gushed about how fabulous the experience was and gave Studio Ten 25 a shout out for the gorgeous space too! You can read all about Caroline’s visit to Lash Maxx’s new studio on PURE WOW!!
Here are a few of my favorite shots from the Lash Maxx Studio that will give you the overall feel. Not much better than black, white, gold and fuchsia accents!!! Of course we had to throw in a little leopard and a few feathers! Images via: Melanie Johnson Photography for Studio Ten 25

I always enjoy seeing the mix of pieces on everyone’s gift guides. I also love to see them organized in categories that fit each person that I am shopping for. And, when I spot a few pieces from our Shop that makes them even better. Here are a few gift guides that included a few pieces from The Shop! Happy Shopping everyone.
Denver Life Magazine included our Garland Candle Holder in their Deck The Halls feature this month. I love the mix of glitzy pieces that bring in that festive fell and how easily the pieces can transition into your home throughout the year.
One of my favorite gift guides is from Sarah Sarna! Her 40 Phenomenal Presents Gift Guide perfect sums up the best gifts for babies, book lovers, the fashionista and more!!! Our Tej Quilt from Pyar & Co made the cut!
Christmas will be here in a few short weeks and last minute gifts can be a challenge with big crowds, traffic and limited time on our hands. So I though I would share the perfect last minute gift that you can pick up online without having to deal with those fun challenges. Most of us just go out and buy something if we want it, so when someone asks you want you want for Christmas I have the perfect solution. If you read my blog, you know that Dwell With Dignity is very special to me. Their website, Jingle Dwell was a big hit last year and I love that there is a great option like this for gifting.
The Jingle Dwell Holiday Giving Tree provides a way for you to spread holiday cheer by transforming a house into a home for a deserving family. Each “ornament” on the Jingle Dwell tree represents an item needed for one of their homes.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Dwell with Dignity, they are a non-profit group of Interior Designers that partner with board-approved, social service agencies to identify and help families transition into self-sufficiency. Their role is providing and installing home interiors that include furnishings, art, bedding, housewares, kitchen supplies, and even a well-stocked pantry for housewarming day!
”Home for the Holidays.”
The phrase can mean something different for everyone. But for families struggling to escape hardship or poverty, “home” can mean little more than a mattress on the floor or a sheet tacked to the window as a curtain.
That’s where Dwell with Dignity comes in. Dwell With Dignity is a non-profit group of Interior Designers that partner with board-approved, social service agencies to identify and help families transition into self-sufficiency. Their role is providing and installing home interiors that include furnishings, art, bedding, housewares, kitchen supplies, and even a well-stocked pantry for housewarming day.
So there you have it! Easy online shopping that will help others have a wonderful Christmas!!

This time of year we have quite a few house guests that stay with us through the holiday season. Getting the guest room ready so that our guests feel at home is pretty easy to do with a few simple changes. Our clients have become more aware of the importance of making their guest feel at home too. So they often request that we bring in a few easy pieces to help them feel at home when visiting.
This guest room began with basics like white & grey, and then we layered it with bold pillows & art. We then added a chic throw blanket to keep with the tonal grey palette and a linen chair int he corner for guest to sit if needed. I love the casual linen bedding too, the pieces are easy to wash and look great with a little wrinkle. They make the bedding low maintenance, yet still comfortable for visitors.
You can shop the pieces from this gorgeous grey guest room from the links here:
Grey Greek Key Throw Blanket | Grey Cow Hide Dresser | Grey Linen Accent Chair (similar) | Suzani Hermes Pillows | Navy Fretwork Pillow | Watercolor Art (similar) | Linen Bedding

Good Housekeeping reached out to a handful of designers and asked us to share our favorite go-to paint colors. Selecting the perfect paint color for your space can be a challenge, but with these simple neutrals you will be inspired to get going on that paint project you have been putting off.
My go-to neutral, Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter. We used this sophisticated color in the Sorority House remodel a few months ago. It works great with multiple color palettes and I love the grey undertone!

It snowed in Dallas last night and it was magical! It was also cold, so of course we had a fire going to keep warm. I love how far fireplace accessories have come. There are so many stylish and functional items out there to choose from.
My favorite fireplace accessory is andirons. They are usually used in pairs to lift up the logs above the hearth in order to improve air circulation for better burning. These adorable dog andirons are my absolute favorite and I’m pretty sure Santa is going to be bringing them over this year!! And, we are pretty stoked to see them featured in DHome this month too!
