Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to work with and meet so many wonderful people from many areas of the design industry. I love sitting down with other designers, vendors and creative types to talk about the day in and day out challenges, tools that really work for our businesses and sharing products that we each love. I sometimes feel like I sit on an island alone since Studio Ten 25 is a small design firm, so having those relationships keep me motivated and positive. And adding positive people to my life is always at the top of my list.
I am introducing a new element to Shop Ten 25, our online boutique. We are in the final stages of updating a few things on The Shop and when I started the process, I knew that I wanted to include a few of my favorite people that have become a wonderful part of my life and business. I was once told that “connecting the dots” in life and business will lead me to great experiences and even greater opportunity. When you reach other to others, you quickly realize that there is no room for competition and that it’s all about the relationships and friendships that come from working with others.
“DESIGNER PICKS” will be the latest addition to Shop Ten 25 when we go live with our updates later this month. So in the meantime, I wanted to introduce the first four designers to curate a collection at Shop Ten 25! We have asked each of them to select a handful of pieces that they love and reflect their personal design style! As we move into summer, we plan to add a few more designers. AND, of course if you have someone in mind that would be a fit we would love to hear about them!! Stay tuned, we promise to share more details down the road!
Spring florals, soft lavenders and bold graphic accents are always a good combination. We love the pretty and plush feel of today’s Get the Look and how easily it can be created! Adding pattern with pillows, texture with art and fun accent pieces are an easy way to take your space up a notch for Spring too!

Mid-Century modern mixed with a little sleek chic is the best way to describe this University Park home. We love the sleek color palette mixed with classic pieces and a bit of the latest trends that the house has. A soothing master suite, gorgeous sitting room, open kitchen, fancy formal dining room and a cozy family room were the main spaces that we updated in the home. See us pull the space together with the final touches!

With old man Winter making way for Spring, I am starting to think it’s time to do a little spiffing up around the house. I am a big fan of color and texture, but sometimes you need a few fabulous neutrals to keep all of that color in check. Adding fur with pillows, accent pieces and even a cozy throw for those nippy Spring night make for great transition pieces as Spring slowly arrives. This week’s Weekend Window is sure to fit in with any color palette. Bright white, chic charcoal and basic black mix perfectly with acrylic and metal accents!

We are big fans of jewel tones here in The Studio and the right shade of purple is definately on our love list. I love how bold the color is in today’s Get The Look. Bold graphic pattern and minimal accents in a mix of purple tones really makes a huge impact. The key to going bold with color is to keep you main pieces in the room simple. Layering different tones of the color with pattern and texture and bringing in a pop of another accent color will help bring it all together!
