secrets of a stylist

Have you been watching Secrets of a Stylist on HGTV? I’m kind of hooked on the show! I usually love myself a good design and makeover story so this is right up my alley. Stylist Emily Henderson has an awesome portfolio of work and masterminds some fabulous room transformations on the show. It makes me wish that I had a house, and a corresponding budget with which, to decorate. Emily assesses each person’s individual design style and then creates a room tailored just for them. Some of my favorite rooms so far have been 70’s Funky Elegance, Graphic Antique, and Retro Polynesian Kitsch. I’m thinking my room might be Vintage Mid-Century Boho-Chic or, you know, something like that. I love the way that Emily combines very different design styles into one cohesive and beautiful room. These are some of my favorites from her portfolio (I’m in love with this aqua tufted couch!):

It seems that at home bar carts are so very in right now. What do you think? I don’t know that I have a need for one, but I sure do like the way they look! And that gold floral wallpaper is surprisingly chic – I really like the pattern!

i work here.

I made it through an entire design program without a proper workspace. I hunched over my laptop while sitting on my bed or on the couch or while riding various forms of public transportation. I buried the kitchen table with my homework and various projects, much to the dismay of my roommates I’m sure, and I stashed my art supplies in any and every free corner of floor space I could find. And while this worked for me back then, I’m starting to think that creating a workspace that is separate from, oh say, your bed or your kitchen, might be a very healthy and (yikes!) grown-up thing to do. I’m dreaming of my very own workspace and am loving these beautiful, inspiring spaces:

Apparently I’m really into white walls, clean spaces, and graphic details at the moment, which would be quite a joke if only you could see my cluttered, messy room right now! I tell myself that I know where everything is – oh, that thing? It should be under the pile of papers in the corner. No, not that pile of papers, the other one…

Also loving this piece by Vanity Fair featuring the desks of some Hollywood bigwigs. My favorites: Liz Smith’s desk with its bright windows, organized clutter, and Tony Curtis headshot, and also Oprah’s desk with the fresh flowers and tea in a Hermes cup and saucer!

And liking this Office Snapshots website where you can browse the office spaces of big companies and get inspiration for your home office. Loving the Urban Outfitters Headquarters offices in Philadelphia. Also notable: the new Facebook offices and Google: Zurich.

Where do you go to get work done?

erin fetherston

I love these pictures of Erin Fetherston in her dreamy New York apartment. I wish I could always look this ethereal and lovely while lounging around the house. And she has the best hair, doesn’t she? Obsessed with her bangs. And the Swedish braid.
