Dwell in possibility.
Let’s picture, for a second, what our lives would look like if we dared to imagine and dwell in the possibilities of every moment and every challenge. Would there be less fear, less dread, less monotony? Would there be more joy, creativity and adventure?
Daring to imagine the possibilities is precisely what Heather Bills does through Studio XXI, an inventive jewelry and home decor design shop. From reimagining jewelry in unique mediums to bringing new meaning to the phrase “stay at home mom,” Heather steps beyond expected norms and delivers a broader scope of possibilities. Possibilities that delight, surprise, and inspire!
If you’re eager to reimagine and redesign the norms in your life, keep reading. There’s a world of possibilities for us to dwell in, and Heather’s inspiring perspective is an invitation to take a beautiful, courageous step into that world!
Designed with Heart
Me: What sparked the idea for Studio XXI? Did you always dream of doing this?
Heather: Studio XXI actually started as a furniture business. I made farmhouse tables, coffee tables, and console tables. Four months after starting the business, I wanted to expand in a different way. I’ve always wanted to create something. I never knew what my niche was. I have finally found it.
I wanted my daughter to have a strong business woman to look up to. I wanted her to know that being a stay at home mom means you can doing something you love too. I wanted to be her role model.
Me: And I’d say you’re a role model for a lot of people who are looking to live more possibility-filled, creative lives. Speaking of creative, the name Studio XXI is so cool! Where did that come from?
Heather: Studio XXI, which is pronounced Studio 21 (XXI are the Roman numerals for 21) has true meaning behind it. The number 21 has shown up a lot in my life. My grandfather passed away Dec. 21, 2008, my dad’s birthday is March 21, and my son’s birthday is August 21, 2009. Something happened all on the 21st for them. I knew I had to use my lucky number.
Me: That's such a special connection. And I understand that you founded Studio XXI in Tennessee for a special reason, too?
Heather: I was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. This is home. I could not think of anywhere else to start my business.
Me: Who are the people behind Studio XXI?
Heather: Studio XXI is currently a one woman show. I imagine, design, and create each piece by hand.
Me: So you’re wearing a lot of hats for this company! What’s been your proudest moment, thus far, in running Studio XXI?
Heather: That there are 5 different businesses that sell my pieces. That happened in a year.
