I love all my clients, but the first time I met with Claria Nieves, owner of LashMaxx, we instantly hit it off. It didn’t hurt that her vision for her studio was right up my girly, bling-lovin’ alley. Claria has been beautifying the world for more than 8 years, first as a makeup artist and now as a “lashionista.” She’s a beauty expert who shares my belief that glamour is always on trend, so we designed her new Dallas studio to be over-the-top glam. Yesterday I shared a few of my favorite BEFORE and AFTER images of the space. So as we finalize the interior expansion of their growing space, I thought it would be fun to share the updates and hear from the Lashionista too! Here’s what she had to say about the design process and the fabulous final product:
Q: Why were you drawn to Abbe’s style as an interior designer?
The first time I saw Abbe’s work, I instantly became a fan. It’s very glam and chic, but also had personality.
Q: What aesthetic did you want to create?
I wanted my space to look very glamorous. I love chandeliers and mirrors, and that was music to Abbe’s ears!
Q: How did Abbe help refine and create your vision?
She totally got my vision, and delivered so much more. She brought in some patters and other little details that I would have never thought of myself. It really brought the entire space to life.
Q: What do you love most about your studio?
I love everything! A few of my favorite things are the Mongolian fur benches, my chair in my office and my custom made Lash Maxx illustrations by Stephanie Jiminez.
