Inspiration in the Studio

Celebrating 10 Years with Cary Magazine!

We enjoyed a beautiful evening (well, after the summer storm passed) at Koka Booth Amphitheater celebrating the ten year anniversary of Cary Magazine. We were happy to sponsor the event and thrilled to have a publication that captures the quality of life that Cary has to offer!


Summer evenings with flowers and friends! The Mayor even proclaimed the day, Cary Magazine Day!


Happy Summer to all….enjoy!




It’s been great fun over the past several weeks to be recognized for not only our design work, but for happy clients too!

Last week, we were honored to be named Best of Houzz for DESIGN and SATISFACTION! It’s so awesome to be recognized for BOTH awards. Houzz has become a go-to source of design inspiration for anyone building or remodeling. If you have a few extra minutes and a few kind words to share, please visit our page and add a review.


We were also honored to receive a Best of Western Wake Maggy Award for the THIRD consecutive year from Cary Magazine! Jessica and Julia attended the Maggy party last week to accept our award. Check out the January issue for a complete list of winners.


We are so thankful for all of our friends and clients who believe in us! We’ll continue to work hard to fulfill our mission of providing a high level of creativity, integrity and personalized attention to every project.


A Little Bit of Holiday Spirit (for just a few hours)!

It’s the second day of autumn and you know what that means?  It’s time to prepare for the holidays. We just finished a photo shoot in the studio for the holiday issue of Cary Magazine!


It’s a great way to start a Monday, but we’ll now put the decorations away and turn off the Christmas carols for another month or two. Gotta love this job!


Celebrating the 2013 Maggy Awards!

What a fun evening at Mellow Mushroom celebrating the winners of the 2013 Maggy Awards!  Thanks to Cary Magazine for hosting the event that celebrates the Best of Western Wake. It was great to share the evening with Martha and Vicki…

This is the second year we were honored! We’ve been working hard and want to do our best for each client and project. After all, it’s our clients that give us the opportunity to do what we love to do each and every day.

Cheers to a fabulous 2013!

Southern Studio sponsors The Women of Western Wake!

Last week, we were honored to attend and sponsor a table at a special luncheon honoring this year’s Women of Western Wake. It was nice to escape for a couple of hours and listen to some inspiring and uplifting women share their stories of balancing busy lives while making a difference in our community! The dining room was packed with incredible talent and beautiful people (inside and out), including those at our table.

Let’s just say the luncheon at the Umstead Hotel was delicious and the company was even better!  To read the stories of the honorees, read this months’ issue of Cary Magazine. Now, back to trying to make a difference in this world…I think I can, I think I can!
