Last night I dreamt of wicker

As you do.  I had a dream that a client said ‘no wicker’ which is more like deja vu, less like a dream because i’ve had 3 homeowners put the immediate kaybash on ‘wicker’.   And i get it, i do.  You grew up in the 80’s, you remember loads of wicker and floral fabric,… Read More …

Give me 5 hours

….til a new post. I had a whirlwind trip last week, 30 hours in nyc full of like 31 meetings and a really fun HGTV party, (pics to follow, including me and Dina from RHONJ and the Novagratz’s).  Then straight to Salt Lake City where i got a behind the scenes question and answer session… Read More …

What did we do before ETSY?

Artwork for a tv show is tricky.   And by tricky i mean ugly, bad, hotel art.  I mean, you can’t even call it ‘art.’ You could call it ‘stuff to put on walls so it doesn’t look empty’.   Well, welcome to my biggest pet peeve, wait, styling shelving with empty bins is my… Read More …

Emily, Emily who are you wearing??

S’right.  Those screams follow me everywhere, wait no they don’t, and especially NOT a the Rose Bowl yesterday during the drizzle that turned this little blonde into a little drowned squirrel, a la this:   Oh that guy? Not sure who he is but he reminds me of somebody…..  And no, i did not purchase… Read More …

Newest purchases, for me.

And when i say ‘for me’, it means ‘for me until i find myself desperate and needing it for the show then its gone’.  Sometimes at night Brian sees my eyes darting around and he’s like, ‘wait, don’t shop…nothing is leaving.  no not that, Emily i actually like that…’   Oh Brian, clearly he doesn’t… Read More …

Perfection? meh, its for the dogs.

I get a lot of criticism on the show for having a lot of ‘clutter’ and being really ‘messy’ and ‘random’.  Yes, these are the haters, and in general i don’t really care, but when i was thinking about who i love, style-wise i was reminded of these folks and how much i would rather… Read More …
