If your not into junking up your bookshelves, but still want a completed, look today is your lucky day. Using fabric or wallpaper on the back of bookshelves is a great go-to when making your shelves look complete . Select a pattern that is simple and neutral if you want to go with bold books, art and accessories on your shelves. If minimal is the look your going for, the wallpaper can have a bit more flare with pattern and color. From bold and beautiful to simple yet chic, hopefully these stylish shelves will inspire you.
This closet! I’m in the process up updating a few spaces in our home, and this makes me wonder why our master closet isn’t on my to-do list. Even if we don’t have the room for a chair or ottoman, I feel like new carpet and a fabulous wallpaper will really bring the chic to the space. So, let there be inspiration! Hoping today’s GET THE LOOK will inspire you to bring a few fabulous touches that will take you closet to the next level.

Home offices have become a major part of the way we live these days, and they are always on the “to-do” list of our clients. We love designing home offices for our clients, its a great way to create a look and feel that is an extension of the home. Home offices can be a challenge, because they always require we thought out storage and function solutions.
This home office was designed for one of our bachelors. He needed a place that was easy to work in and he didn’t want dark & heavy pieces, so that was a challenge when it came to concealing clutter. We used pieces from Room & Board to create an L-shaped table desk. I love the crisp white marble tops and modern metal legs. We added storage units on wheels that will make it easy for him to access files and office supplies. A sleek bookshelf brings in a bit of warmth and style, while adding a bit of storage for printer paper and pieces that he may need access to on a regular basis. Here is the overall look that we presented to him.
BEFORE: This room was just used as a bit of a catch all room. Nothing fancy, but loads of potential and we were ready to make the best off the soaring windows, natural light and fabulous Dallas views! The perfect blank slate if you ask me!
AFTER: A modern & masculine home office that gives our client plenty of room to spread out and place to store the clutter that can take over an office. And, now he can leave the office door open without being ashamed of what visitors will see as they walk by the room! I LOVE the art from Natural Curiosities, the book collection is the perfect way to add a bit of color, simplicity and an office feel. Thank you Melanie Johnson for the fabulous images!
I had the pleasure of filming a before & after segment with TV Host Hilary Kennedy that It was going to run on a new Dallas-based TV show but unfortunately, the show never made it on air. But, that doesn’t mean that I can’t share the segment and show off the fun before and after look in my own sitting room!
Here are a few images of the room before and after the updates as well as an inside look of the shoot!! And of course we wouldn’t leave you hanging on where to snag these gorgeous pieces!
Shop Ten 25 is in major overhaul mode and we are loving all of the fabulous new additions!

SHOP WHATS NEW
If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you have been seeing plenty of updates on our Downtown Dallas project. We love the unique and urban location of this town home, and of course we love that our client is requesting pink!!! We have had may conversations on how we want to incorporate the color, and the urban sophisticated shade is the one we both agreed on!
It all started with this Designer’s Guild Orangerie wallpaper and fabric. We we all over it and after a few brainstorming sessions, the pattern made it’s way to the ceiling of the master bedroom!! Ummm…can you say FABULOUS??!! So maybe it isn’t your “cup of tea”, but when your a successful single gal with no man to put the kibosh on ANYTHING, you just go for it!!! Why not?
The wallpaper is still being installed throughout the home and today, the leopard wallpaper for the master closet is being finalized!!! Now we just need to get all of those Louboutins up on the shelves!!
So incase you are wondering what in the world this room is going to look like, here are the fabrics that we pulled to use throughout the room. Looks bold…and it is…but once we layer this gorgeous pattern with simplistic white bedding and stunning white linen drapes and cornice boards…it will be AMAZING!!
As if the floral wallpaper and major girl power palette weren’t enough. We had to step it up with one major piece in pink, but the right pink. We used Robert Allen’s Velvet Maze in Cerise. Yes, Cerise. I think it may be my new favorite shade of pink!!! It’s perfect for this vintage loveseat…I may freak out once my client starts using it!
I am flattered and really excited when FD Luxe included me on their “Ones To Watch” Instagram accounts of Dallas designers this week! Instagram is one of my favorite social media outlets so being included in a group with the amazing Michelle Nussbaumer, Jan Showers, Gonzolo Bueno, John Bobbitt and Joshua Rice is a huge honor!!!
