    Weekend Window {Megan Adams}

    Introducing new artists and designers is one of my great delights in owning an online shop. There really is so much talent out there! Today’s featured artist crosses both platforms. Megan Adams not only creates beautiful, ethereal abstract paintings, but she also has a line of pillows inspired by those paintings. For my purposes, I’m thrilled!! This just means more ways to incorporate her stunning work into my client’s homes!
    Megan’s designs pair wonderfully with the whimsy of the Lola table and bright color of the Orange Pagoda lamp. How would YOU incorporate her pieces into your home?

    Holiday Gift Guide {For The Home}

    Monday launched our gift guide series with picks for HER… yesterday was all about the GUYS. You didn’t think Kristin and I would curate a gift guide without mentioning the home, did you?! When we’re not shopping for my wardrobe you can find us scouting for Kristin’s new home. You can see quite a few pics of the pieces we have snagged for her home HERE.  Given my profession and her obsession, it only seemed natural. So, here you have a few of our favorite finds from both across the web and right here in our town of Dallas to style your home.  We have even snagged a few of them for here home…and a few are on my wish list too!

    Holiday Gift Guide {For Her}

    I have been incredibly blessed to work with some amazing design clients through Studio Ten 25!! Over the years, I’ve met some truly unique individuals and gained a few friends along the way as well. One such client turned friend is Kristin Skilling, a seriously talented Dallas wardrobe stylist. I can attest first-hand to the power of her personal styling services!! This girl is gooood. She helped me transform my closet and see my wardrobe in a completely new light! In return, I’ve been designing her new home and cannot wait to share it with the rest of you. (more on that later)
    Throughout the process of designing Kristin’s space and styling my wardrobe, it’s fair to say that we’ve gotten pretty good at shopping together. So, it only seemed appropriate to put our fashion/design heads together and collaborate on a fun series of holiday gift guides! Over the next couple weeks, Kristin and I will be sharing our favorites gift choices for a variety of friends, family, and pets that we’ve sourced from online and around Dallas.
    First up, gifts for HER… of course!!
