Now that Pantone has named Radiant Orchid as 2014′s color of the year, we are seeing the gorgeous color pop up everywhere! This past year, we designed a girly glam lash extension studio here in Dallas, and I LOVE that we used a gorgeous lavender color throughout the space! The Glam Pad recently featured the project on her blog and so I thought it would be fun to share the feature as well as a few of our favorite projects that pop with purple!!
Today I wanted to show off a few more of my favorite trends that I spotted at High Point Market. Last week I showed off a few of my favorite hide pieces as well as a little animal magnetism. I love how manufactures are consitantly coming up with ways to take classic lines, shapes and functional pieces that have always been available, yet make them new and fresh.
Lacquer was everywhere at market this fall, yet it didn’t come across as cheap and cheesy like it can easily do. Sleek finishes in bold colors and sophisticated styles caught my eye. Lacquer brightens up a pieces and it brings in just the right amount of reflectivity to any room.

Color trends have been the big deal, especially since Pantone names a color of the year keeping the design world on its toes. Purple, teal and emerald green were big color players at market this year but purple was by far my favorite. I love how it varied from soft and chic lavenders to rich warm plums. Purple looks great in all tones and even as a monochromatic look but I love it most in small doses.

When the Vivant asked me to share a few tips on selecting the right rug for your space, I was really excited to chime in!
If you have ever undertaken decorating a room, you have likely asked yourself: “What size rug should I buy?” Well, I focused on the top questions that we receive from our clients at Studio Ten 25 and hopefully you find a few tips that will help you along the way!
“Choosing the right rug size for your space can be challenging because the task alone brings up so many questions. What size is the right size for my room? Will this pattern be too much or just right? Do I really want to spend this much on a rug or go with a smaller size to save money?”

I love the warm golden light from the sun that fall brings. And when seasons change, so do the colors that make each one of them warm, bright or cozy. Fall is my favorite season! I love unpacking my boots from storage, adding mums and pumpkins to our front porch and the smell of leaves as the began to fall from the trees. A warm golden yellow instantly reminds me of fall and I am considering adding a few pops of the happy yet cozy color to our home this season.

I recently had the opportunity to work with Dallas pet portrait artist Melissa Smith for a custom portrait of Caddo & Ivy. When we began to work together on a portrait of Caddo & Ivy I knew that I wanted them sitting pretty on my favorite piece in our home. Our ivory croc velvet sofa is one of the first things you see when you walk into our home and the girls are not allows on it. I had a hard time getting them to pose but once we finally got the shot, Melissa began to do her thing! She perfectly captured the quirky little head tilt and funny facial expression of my puppy dogs.
My favorite part of the process was when she would send update images! It’s fun to see how the piece transforms and how she creates the details that make each puppy dog look like themselves. Her BLOG is a must, I love seeing each piece transform. She captured every detail and a few of my favorite details are the feathering on Caddo and of course Ivy’s “what” face. My FAVORITE part…knowing that 10% of the cost of this piece goes to support the non-proffit pet rescue of my choice, what a wonderful thing! Having a custom piece of the girls in our home is something I will always cherish. Even when we our lives take us to new homes and when things began to change, I will always have this fabulous piece! There will be nothing better than my fur babies sitting on my favorite sofa!
We recently finished pulling this fabulous Dallas 30′s Bungalow together and have been swooning over the photo shoot images from Melanie Johnson! The multiple shades of turquoise and coral kept the home sophisticated while the fun art and accessories brought in tons of texture and ramped up the chic factor. So in honor of our latest project obsession, we wanted to share a few of our favorite pieces. I am in LOVE with the turquoise Diana necklace from Brighthouse Baubles & as a matter of fact I rocked my yesterday (THANK YOU AMY!!). I can imagine my client lounging around in her new home in a billowy white dress, the Diana necklace around her neck and of course lounging on her new Kaori pillow! Although I’m pretty sure she is curled up on her new sofa with her hubby and puppy dog…I secretly dream that each of my client’s dress for their home!
