It’s not secret that I am a little bit obsessed with my two fur babies, Caddo & Ivy. My “girls” as I often call them are my Studio buddies and remind me when it’s time to take a break. If I could take them with me everywhere, I probably would but not everyone loves puppies like I do.  So, for all of you fur moms out there, I wanted to share one of my favorite gifts for Mother’s Day that I am giving to the 3 Moms in my life this year.

Framebridge has become one of my favorite places to frame images, especially when pulling together the final touches for a client’s home. Just upload your favorite image, pick your frame, the size and you have a fabulously framed image ready to hang! I LOVE that they can link to your Instagram account to download images, nothing better than an edited and filtered pic ready to go!

I may have gotten one for know..because the girls can’t use the internet and they don’t have a credit card! If you a last minute gift shopper, you have until May 1st to get your order just in time for Mother’s Day! Here are my favorites!

Acrylic is one of my favorite materials (other than mirrored pieces) to implement in my design projects. It can make a tiny space feel visually open and look larger than it actually is. Acrylic brings similar element to a room like mirrored pieces do. The both keep the light effortlessly moving around in a room and add plenty of chic. I love that acrylic, like mirror compliment all aesthetics.

We are currently in the beginning of our remodel and I am starting to pull furniture and fabric elements that we will need for each room. An acrylic four poster bed is on my wish list…but we will have to see how the budget lands. You know how it goes…and extra $500 here and another $1500 for that unexpected replacement pipe. So, we will see how it all shakes out. But, if you have been looking for a bed that will knock your socks off….I have pulled a few of my favorites below. How fab is the acrylic crib?!

I have to admit, I love clothes about as much as I love design but pulling the trigger isn’t easy for me. I do struggle with fashion daily, because I want to be cute, chic and stylish but I find myself gravitating towards many of the same exact pieces that treat me right and always make me feel pulled together when I’m short on time. Why do I feel like I can’t pull an outfit together as easily as I can pull together a fabulous design for a client’s room?

I am constantly moving around and need my outfits to to say “I can climb a ladder with out flashing anyone, get on the floor to layout samples without my bits showing and break a sweat during an installation while still look professional doing all of this!” I think you’ll be surprised to see that even though I love bold color….I like to keep it simple when it comes to outfits. I save the big drama looks for fun nights out on the town!

I wanted to share a few of my favorite pieces and looks that keep me pulled together on those long installation days as well as presentations days. If you follow me on Pinterest, you have probably noticed that I have a board dedicated to outfits and have most likely worn them…exactly!  You won’t be seeing any pictures of me on the blog showing off outfits, but I do secretly wish I had one of the many awesome fashion bloggers make a look book for me. For now, I will just have to stalk them and stick with my favorite looks from Pinterest!

Here are a few of my favorite spring looks!

All white with a nude heal…yes please! I like to save this one for shopping and presentation days. I love these Articles of Society white skinny jeans….the price is amazing and I snagged a few pair to get me through the summer.

blue and nude

Pretty much my go-to look. I love a flowy and lightweight T and those shoes…I have them and I LOVE them! A great statement necklace, wrist stack and worn jeans make me feel like I can easily take on any task the day throws at me.

Another spring favorite. I love my denim jacket and wear it often!

Mother’s Day is around the corner and I have three lovely mothers to shop for each year. Each of them have their own unique style so finding a great gift that is not only thoughtful, but useful can be challenging. I love sending them cards & flowers, but fun gift always lets them know how loved they are by all of us!

Here are a few of my favorite gifts that are sure to make my favorite ladies smile this Mother’s Day! Being a designer makes it easy to find something pretty to sit around the house, but sometimes a girl just needs a funky necklace or something chic to sip her wine from!

Purple Rain, not my favorite Prince song but still one that brings back major memories. My favorite Prince song is Delirious! Dancing in the living room while Prince blares from the pink 80’s Sony cassette boom box will forever be a memory from my teenage years. I’m sure my latest Itunes account charges full of Prince songs will be no different than anyone else that loved his music.

I wanted to share one of the master bedroom projects from our portfolio. When we asked Dallas artist Amee Calloway to create a custom piece for this room with a purple color palette, she knocked it out of the part. Once the news of Prince began to take over social media, Amee posted this…

“About a year ago I named this painting “Purple Rain”, for many reasons but mostly because I was jamming out to Prince while painting! So sad today.
Thank you Studioten25 for the opportunity!”

Art Deco elements are making a comeback and I love how easily they blend with modern and eclectic pieces. With a mix of bold color, classic lines and glitzy lighting, this formal sitting room is the perfect place to entertain or just give your guests a little something to turn their head at.
