Before & After {Chic Boutique}

I am still on a high over the recent feature on our latest chic boutique project in House of Fifty! Today I thought it would be fun to show off a few of the before and after images from the projects. I always love looking back on the progress of projects, remembering the challenges, exciting moments and of course the look on my client’s faces when the final look comes together.


This old historic Church in downtown Celina, TX was the perfect location for the boutique and coffee/bar that my clients had planned. The upstairs portion of the building was being used as a residential loft when they purchased it, and although there were a few cool design elements, they were not going to work for the layout we needed.


BEFORE:  This view of the gorgeous stained glass windows suspended in wall  screamed “main check out area”.  It was going to become one of our favorite focal points in the space and would be instantly seen as soon as you walked into the boutique.

 AFTER:  Now, the custom cash wrap desk provides the perfect amount of work space for the employees and the entire sales floor and main entrance can be see from the area. I love that it helps to ground the space and it really does make the stained glass windows pop!







BEFORE: The main office was being used as the past owner’s master bedroom. the exposed brick wall are beyond amazing and made the perfect backdrop for the large scale art and lighting that we were going to add. The natural light was also a plus in the space!

AFTER: Here is the exact same view of the room. We had to move a few walls and a powder bathroom around to make the entrance work, but it gave a a ton of usable space for office. The lounge area was a much







BEFORE: The downstairs coffee bar and bar area  was a blank slate.  The owners knew exactly what they wanted to do with the space but it needed a ton of TLC

AFTER: Now the space is a warm and cozy coffee bar by day with an open lounge area and table for customers to catch up on work or with a friend.  By night, the bar becomes host so local bands and patrons looking to shake of a long day.

House Of Fifty {Turquoise Firefly}

I am so excited to finally get ahold of the latest edition of House of Fifty! One of our latest design projects from Studio Ten 25 is being featured and wow, what a fabulous write up!  Over the past few year we have been working on a gorgeous boutique just outside of Dallas. It is owned by a husband and wife team that decided to make their dream of owning a clothing boutique (for her) and a coffee bar by day / bar by night (for him) a reality.

Head on over to House of Fifty to see more on the project, including TONS of gorgeous photographs from Melanie Johnson and styling by Jenny O’Connor!
