Lone Star House of Design | 6 | Abbe Fenimore on Fabulously Durable Design that Stands the Test of Time



Studio|Ten|25 is the Dallas based firm owned and operated by Abbe Fenimore. Abbe has earned a reputation for her playful style and unique interiors. She has earned the nickname, “queen of sorority houses.” I have never before spoke with a designer who specialized in sorority houses. I can tell you, having lived in a fraternity, college housing can take some serious abuse. Abbe has figured out how to preserve beauty and high performance. She applies these same ideas to her residential and office projects. Abbe and I had a very cool chat about these and other issues that shape design and architecture in the Great State of Texas.

Thank you Abbe, that was fun and I truly appreciate the time.

Lone Star House of Design | 5 | Kim Armstrong on Bold Color and Style that is Big & Bright



Kim Armstrong is a designer out of Dallas. She is fearless with color, surgical in her blending of materials and styles. I became familiar with Kim’s work through a friend in Dallas who is also a designer. When one designer tells me that I have to check out the work of another designer, that is a suggestion to which I cannot say no. And I am glad that I followed up because our conversation was fun, colorful and I think you are going to enjoy it. This is Kim Armstrong in episode number 5 of Lone Star House of Design!

Thank you, Kim. That was great and I truly appreciate the time.

Lone Star House of Design | 2 | Cindy Aplanalp-Yates of Chairma Design Group



Cindy Aplanalp-Yates is the Principal of Chairma Design Group, an award-winning design firm in Houston. Cindy goes into the game a bit later than most. The family came first, then the business. Cindy and I sat down at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas to talk design, trade shows and the uniqueness of Texans which makes designing in Texas so much fun. This is Cindy Aplanalp-Yates.
