HGTV Celebrity Holiday Homes TONIGHT!

Pretend you are Cheryl Burke in the photo below. Aren’t you a little bit curious how I decorated her house for the holidays? Funny, me too. I haven’t seen it yet, although of course I know how it looked in person.

It’s not a ten-day, hour long episode with two looks like last year’s holiday special. This one was more of a short four-hour makeover, very cosmetic, but totally fun. The episode is an hour-long, but it’s shared with my lovely “Design Star” winners Meg Caswell and Danielle Colding (and their famous homeowners).

Set your DVR’s or better yet, watch it live and actually make your viewership count, except it doesn’t unless you have a Nielsen box. (Don’t ask, it’s complicated and depressing.)

9pm (6pm PST) TONIGHT on HGTV

In case you didn’t see last years holiday special, please watch it HERE. 

If you spread the word, I’ll tell Santa Claus to bring you that autographed copy of Snookie’s autobiography that you’ve been secretly wishing you had, but are too afraid to ask.

Tweet it, Facebook it, Friendster that info.

Also, if you watch you might be able to catch my lazy eye in action:

Where is it looking? Only those that watch will know …

    I DVR'd your Christmas special from last year which was just replayed this past Tuesday (I think) and I've already watched it 3 times. I even stole your 'Joy To The World' map idea and did my own stencil/DIY project (which I never do because I generally suck at it) and it came out so good. I was so excited to put it up amongst all of the brass/gold trimmings. Can't believe you've turned me onto brass/gold. I was strictly a silver girl for many, many years. Yours is the best HGTV Holiday Episode ever!! Looking forward to this years special.

  7. You are just the funniest! That picture of you in front of the tree is so.freaking.hilarious. I agree with the comments above- I come here for the design (because you're amazing and inspiring) but the humor is an added bonus! Big fan here in KS, Merry Christmas!

  13. i'm so excited about this episode! i loved what you did with last year's xmas decor! as kimberly said above, you started an obsession with brass! in fact, i freaked out over the vintage brass deer and found 2 of them at an estate sale and 2 at the flea market!! although mine aren't quite as big, they are still gorgeous! (i don't have a blog, but i linked my name to a photo of my mantel with my deer in action!) i can't wait to be inspired tonight!

    If only I wasn't cheap and had cable. I'd run my husband out of the house to watch an hour-long Christmas special with Emily Henderson and never look back. Because your ideas aren't boring, I've loved you since Design Star, you have a lazy eye, and you freakin' decorated a house for Christmas in hot pink. Of course you dressed to match. I still think about stacking globe snow men from last year. But alas, I will wait for this year's online debut. Tell HGTV to get on that. Thanks for being awesome.

    Emily! I saw your Christmas special last night! I have to say I absolutely love you and your style! Your blog is my favorite and always the first one I read off of my reader (and believe me, there are a LOT of blogs on there!). I've never commented before but I wanted to tell you how much I loved seeing you on tv again! I miss your show! You've inspired my design style so much. I am a frequent flea market shopper now! (Unfortunately, I live in Michigan and there are not amazing markets like in LA or NY!) Anyways, great job on the holiday special! Love the bright colors! I'm Jewish and tonight is the first night of Hanukkah. Maybe you could do a Hanukkah special or post one day! I see a lot of brass menorah's being involved! Besides, Hanukkah has your favorite color palette built right in!

    Oh, boo, I missed it! In case they rerun it, what is the title of the show? Still SOAS? Or Holiday Special? I hate to miss one of your episodes, they're always so good. :)

  21. This is one to bookmark. Excellent content! It's so easy to feel overwhelmed when choosing color, but this is a great walk through.
