Emily Henderson Does It Again

April 3, 2013

If you haven’t guessed it already, I have a huge design crush on Emily Henderson. Sure, she’s cute and she’s funny but it’s her style that kills me every. single. time. She just gets it right. An effortless mix of vintage + new, colour + texture, with a generous dash of natural materials + lush plants add up to liveable, personal spaces that look real. And Emily touches on trends without ever coming across as trend-y…much harder to accomplish than one might think! Well, I know I’m gushing so I’ll stop and just let you see the home that she recently styled for HGTV. Emily was lucky to start with good bones, designed by architect Eric Olsen, and together they brought this family home back to life. Be sure to pop by her blog for plenty of before + afters too…

The exterior is just the icing on the cake, isn’t it? I can just picture kids running across the lawn! Do you have a “crush” in your industry or trade? What would you say or do if you met them in real life one day? And did you have a happy Easter? We sure did…the sunshine was divine! Couldn’t get enough of the weather but now it’s back to cloudy skies and reality but the kids are back in school, hooray :)

I couldn’t agree more. I adore everything that she does designs. The vintage vibe, the pops of colour…eclectic without being kitchy. She really is a true talent. Thanks for sharing.

I can’t get enough of the bright pops of colour, Madeline! Makes me want to add more to my home….

Holy cannoli, Emily kicks some major design butt. I think you’ve “made it” as a designer when you can actually live in/showcase your own beautiful space {oh, and being an HGTV starlet probably helps}. Let me tell you, my apartment looks like I’m still stuck in college dorms. One day I hope to pull off Emily’s effortless eclectic style!

Thanks for sharing Lily!
