Inspiration in the Studio

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.

A Sophisticated Farmhouse!

It was our lucky day when the phone rang and we were asked to help design a home that was already in the framing stage of construction.  We often start much earlier in the process, but we got to work quickly. Very quickly!  This client came with a clear vision….a “sophisticated farmhouse” that reflected the memories of her childhood roots in Texas.  We love the results.

A mostly neutral palette with splashes of fun color combines beautifully with natural textures.

The dining bench in the breakfast nook and barn door for the pantry are a few favorite details.

And, a fabulous dining room that is just waiting for the perfect dinner party!

As the saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas!  Well, this home is definitely big on style and warmth and personality. We’re hoping the family memories created here are big too!

One of Our Latest Projects! Great Clients. Great Builder.

As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. I think the saying is appropriate for this project. We were fortunate enough to work with some wonderful clients throughout the construction and furnishing of their beautiful home. Kudos to Alan Blankenship, an incredibly talented builder with Blankenship Custom Homes!

Love this keeping room….cozy and comfortable!  I actually stopped by recently and found myself lingering a bit too long in that swivel chair.

This is a dream kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances. Notice the beautiful finish on the hood!

The finishes in this dining room are stunning….the faux finish walls and exquisite window treatments.

Now this is an office! Not a bad place to spend the day.

And, the bathrooms…let’s just say details are key!

Thanks, John and Lauren for sharing your home!  When we first met many months ago, we knew we’d be spending a lot of time together. I have to say, we’re missing you these days. Enjoy it all!

Refined Raleigh Remodel!

We recently completed a remodel project in Raleigh that brought new life and energy to a beautiful older home on a gorgeous golf course lot. There’s something about the character and charm of a home that has some history.  There’s family memories and stories behind every wall….you can just feel it. Well, this is one of those homes.

The new family room has a casual sophistication. The breakfast nook is gorgeous and practical with chairs upholstered in Sunbrella fabrics.

This house is ready for many more years of happy memories! Oh, did I mention how much we enjoyed working with these clients? Lucky us.

 

Installation Day...Great Recreation Room in Cary!

It’s always a fun day when we can deliver a project and today was no exception!  Check out this fabulous recreation room in Cary!  We’re still waiting on a few custom pieces to arrive, but we’re excited with how it’s coming together.

The “pops” of orange add a whimsical touch. The ottomans that nestle in the cocktail table add interest and function…and match the fabulous combination of leathers on the barstools.

I can’t wait for the finishing touches!  So many creative ideas….gotta go make it happen.
