Inspiration in the Studio

2017 Awards Season! Best of Houzz and The Maggy Awards.

2017 is off to a great start! We are humbled and thrilled to be recognized for our work.

This is the best kind of email to open….Best of Houzz 2017 for Service and Design!  We’re honored to win in both categories.  Houzz has become the go-to source for anyone building or improving their homes. Be sure to check it out (and look for us too)!

What fun to receive back-to-back honors as we were awarded The Maggy Award by Cary Magazine for Best Interior Design Firm. Martha and I had a blast at the awards celebration at Tazza Kitchen. We’re thankful for our local friends for being our biggest cheerleaders.

Now we have just a bit of pressure!  It’s time to get back to work and make sure we live up to the expectations. Bring it on, 2017!

 

Highlights from Orlando. KBIS and IBS.

Last week, our design team made a quick trip to the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) and International Builders Show (IBS) in Orlando.

It was so worth the trip! We found incredible inspiration for the ultimate bath from the designers of the DXV Design Panel.

There were so many new introductions and technologies to explore. We loved the color in these appliances from Smeg.

It appears we can no longer complain about not being able to find the perfect finish. Kohler managed to cover them all!

And, we absolutely loved these organically shaped sinks from Ronbow.

Some incredible countertop options, including these beautiful quartz introductions.

Oh, and did we mention the amazing windows and doors?  We were drooling.

This is just a sampling from our overflowing camera roll! The options. The details. The inspiration. The possibilities. We can’t wait to use them all!

Happy New Year!

May the gifts of love, happiness, peace, and warmth be abundant in your home as you begin the New Year.

Happy New Year from our team at Southern Studio Interior Design!

New Website Launch

12-8-16

Have you seen it? Our new website is LIVE on southernstudio.com. We are so excited to debut this updated site, which has been a labor of love over the last few months.

The new website features updated, bright photos of our projects, current team photos and bios, testimonials, information about our available services, awards and magazines featuring our work, access to the blog, and a contact form to reach our designers with your project inquiries.

The new site goes along with our complete re-branding project. We now have new logos, colors, client-exclusive gifts, and merchandise in the office to freshly represent our attitude and seriousness about the quality of the business.

You may have noticed the new logos starting to debut on our social media outlets as we do a fresh sweep of the office. It is our primary goal to create environments that provide joy and make a difference in the lives of our clients. This re-branding has not changed that vision, but has been an exciting process and we hope our followers will see and feel the fresh, timeless quality of our work.

Women of Western Wake (A Favorite Annual Event)

Each year we sponsor Cary’s Magazine‘s Women of Western Wake luncheon. It’s a beautiful event at the Umstead Hotel.  Why do we like this event?  Well, because…

…it’s a short escape from our fast pace to hear messages of inspiration and motivation from some impressive women who impact our local community.

…it’s an opportunity to invite a few women who help us in the studio on a daily basis. This year we enjoyed the company of a few of our vendor partners (and even one of our past interns).

…it’s a fabulous lunch at the five-star Umstead Hotel.

So thankful for this group of women! We couldn’t do what we do without them.
