I basically have a design crush on this girl. Her design philosophy really resonates with me and I love her portfolio of work. She's fun and quirky and her work is so well-curated. And she has blonde hair like me. Emily is a home style expert, host and designer of Secrets from a Stylist on HGTV, and a writer/producer of her daily style blog.
Snipets from Emily's design philosophy:
"I believe a room is soulless without something that is vintage or antique...I believe a home should look like the person that inhabits it, not a catalog, not what you think others would like — but really, truly like you. I believe that a perfect house is like a perfect person; no one really wants to be around them and everyone secretly hates them..."
Take a look at some of her work:
Emily in her own home
I love the artwork in this dining room.
What a cool eclectic living room. I've never seen that West Elm rug look so good.
Calm and cozy living room
Wild mix of colors
I like the mix of colors, patterns, and textures. I see one of my favorite pillows in the mix.
Fun and sophisticated kid's playroom
Oh Joy's Studio
The Fig House.
Do you recognize this wallpaper from a previous post? I never woud have thought to put this in a living room but this installation is blowing my mind.
