Welp folks, it’s the first Monday of the month and you know what that means: CURRENT DESIGN CRUSH sesh. And based on the above photo I’ll give you one guess who this month’s winner is…
That’s right, it’s the one and only Emily Henderson (a.k.a. my design-soul-mate-who-just-hasn’t-realized-it-yet). This lady has won me over, body and soul, and I’ve never looked back. I know in the deepest part of my heart that she and I would be the very best of friends – along with Kristen Bell, of course. Reasons I love her include: she is not afraid to take a risk, she’s self-made and never had any formal training, she takes the meaning of “obsessed” to a whole new level when she talks about her love for The Bachelor, and she’s got a streak of humorous wit rivaled only by her assistant-turned-director-of-Homepolish Orlando Soria. And her tagline? “Perfection is boring, let’s get weird.” I mean, are we MFEO or what. But seriously guys, her insane talent at designing rooms paired with her witty writing in her blog posts has kept me a time-tested fan of little miss Hendo for years. If you are unfamiliar with her work do yourself a favor and silence your phone for the next hour while you lose yourself in a world of whimsy and elegance.
Probably the most-pinned image ever. Kim K had no clue what kind of competition she’d encounter while trying to break the internet.
You know I love a well-designed kid’s room…
That brass and marble – I die.
She does it all – laid back, pulled-together, full of color, totally neutral, contemporary, classic, modern, traditional, you name it. The woman is seriously the entire package. It also doesn’t hurt that I love her clothes and would give my right pinkie toe to spend an hour in her closet. Ok maybe not the whole toe. Maybe just the tip. No, you know what, she’s worth the whole damn toe. Just take it – TAKE IT.
And Emily, when you realize our destiny to be friends and gush over paint colors and pretty patterns together, I’ll be here. Waiting. In a totally non-stalker way.
