The Right White

Our client’s sitting room is the perfect mix of neutrals, wood tones and bits of metallic accents. We have looked high and low for the perfect rug to tie it all together, and finally found the best look for the room. Although we loved the look of tonal graphic patterns, this simple wool rug from Stark was the best option. The leather bound edges really finish off the piece and add a bit of texture to the space. I love how sleek and chic this room looks now, and the natural light makes everything shimmer!

Sweetness Overload

Sweetness overload! How adorable do our client’s twin girls look in their living room chairs? ‪#‎studioten25‬ ‪#‎ohbaby‬ ‪#‎doubletroublefordaddy‬ And just incase you wanted to see a few more pics from this gorgeous living room, I have added them below!













Modern – Masculine – Monday

Monday is here and I wanted to show off a few of our favorite modern and masculine details. I do love overall room shots, but it is all in the detail of each pieces and a perfectly styled vignette that make it all come together. Leather, hide, nail heads are just a few of the details that make a modern masculine space perfect.  Images Via: Melanie Johnson Photography for Studio Ten 25














Downtown Modern & Minimal

I know it is a bit cliche to design a modern Downtown loft with sleek lines, minimal accessories and modern fabric. But, I love the overall feel and when looking out of the floor to ceiling windows and seeing the gorgeous Downtown views it becomes special. This Downtown Dallas loft was born to show off it’s gorgeous views from the inside without taking away the wow factor. So, we kept the overall look minimal and modern and loved the final feel of the cliche look that we wanted to achieve!  All Images: Melanie Johnson Photography for Studio Ten 25




















Black, White & Bamboo

I love the classic black & white combination. It can be a fit for any design style that you want to work with and is the perfect starting point for any accent color that you want to add. I love this vintage bamboo dining table and chairs, the cane back on the dining chairs is the perfect amount of texture too. We were fortunate enough to find this set updated with the glossy white finish, so it was ready to install. The dining chairs however, needed a little seat refresh! We wanted to use a black and white fabric, but stripes we not going to look right with patterns that we were already using in the living room. We decided to go with a black and white trellis pattern to break up the clean lines from the bamboo and to compliment the cane back on the chairs. Sometimes all you need is a little change to make a huge difference.

Decorating Small Spaces {Real Simple}

Looking for tips to help pull your small space together? We are excited to be included in Real Simple​ ‘s “8 Decorating Mistakes To Avoid In A Studio Apartment”! This loft style home has soaring ceiling and tons of natural light.  Using furniture pieces that fill the space without overpowering it can be a challenge.  The key to making small spaces work, is to create zones that function for the way you live. Choose pieces that can perform a few functions that way you are not having to fill the small space with things that do not work for you. Incorporating mirrors is another great trick to open up the space and give the impression that the room is larger than it really is.

Finding The Perfect Pair {Dallas Morning News}

The monthly Home Team feature in the Arts & Life section of The Dallas Morning News is back! And this month, we are discussing our favorite and perfect pairings!


“Some things just go together: picnics and watermelon; America and apple pie; stars and stripes. We asked North Texas style makers about their perfect pairs. They’re not shy about combining everything from patterns and colors to styles and periods. It’s that mix, they say, that keeps a space fresh, unique and personal.”









Abbe Fenimore,

Studio Ten 25, Dallas

Creating a space for a bachelor can have its challenges, and designer Abbe Fenimore should know; she has done her share of them.

“Using a mix of color, bold graphic pattern and refined accents can easily be too much for the guy that wants to keep it simple,” she says.

So instead, she opts to use a color that he likes in a variation of tones to give the space depth while keeping the overall feel masculine.

“Adding a little leather and sleek metal lighting will round out the space and keep the textures more visually interesting,” Fenimore says. Images Via: Melanie Johnson Photography for Studio Ten 25.
