Studio Remodel (Week No. 3): The Plan

Whelp, I can’t say that I’ve made much progress on the tidying front, but pulling together last week’s inspiration put me in a much better place to purchase pieces for the space this week. But before we dive into those decisions, let’s recap a bit on what I’m starting with...

Studio Remodel (Week No. 2): Curating Interior Inspiration

I’m a huge fan of mood boards. In fact, we joke at home that I can’t even butter my toast without creating a mood board for it first. ;) I’m all about having a vision for where you’re headed. Kidding aside, last week I recapped all that’s gone into the studio remodel to get it to the place that it is now. Much of that was resurfacing floors and walls, but this week, I thought it’d be fun to walk you through my process of designing the interior...

Studio Remodel (Week No. 1): The Studio Beginnings

It was around July 4th last year that I felt the urge to blitz my workspace. I had been living with the status below for some time, and I had the rather impulsive decision that it was THE WEEKEND to get this in working order. By Friday at 5pm, I had not only cleared out my office, but also changed into my home reno attire (face mask, googles, and all) and begun soaking our popcorn ceilings to prepare for scraping...

A New Concept for Dennelly Design

Today is an exciting day. Honestly, I have those same jitters I’d get on the first day of school: excitement mixed with nervous anticipation at the start of something new. Today is the launch of a new brand and website for Dennelly Design Studio that has been in the works for over a year now. It’s the culmination of a lot of hard work, late nights, thought, strategy, discussion, and do-overs. It’s what I’ve been working...

Mood Board: Crisis of the Brands

You've probably noticed it's been a little quiet around these parts. Ok so, crickets really. Truth be told I've been milking summer for all it's worth — impromptu camping trips, long hikes, outdoor lunches, the list goes on. Basically I'm enjoying every reason that I moved to Colorado. But behind the scenes there's been a whole lot of tough love directed at my business too...

Best Free Apps for Getting Organized (in Life + Biz)

Sometimes I try to remember what life was like in the days before apps. No really, think about it. The days when your phone did not also act as a calculator. When you had to MapQuest and print directions. And just about any problem that arose in life that seemed more complicated then it should be, could not, in fact, be answered by the phrase...

Self-Employment & The New Routine

I think many of us have a dream-like definition of what it means to be self-employed. We pine for the the flexibility to wake up we want to, take leisurely mid-day breaks at Instagram-worthy cafes, and generally bask in the creative freedom that is working for ourselves. And when I started to seriously think about being self-employed, I'll be the first to admit, I had many of the same misconceptions...
