Who has anxiety?  not me.  Nope. i woke up effing excited.  Tomorrow is the big day, today is a big install and besides the fact that i have nothing to wear i am walking on cloud 99.  i just finished watching the 5th episode and i’m telling you, they get better and better.  trust. 

So check out my teaser post over at Design Happens, and go back sunday for a behind the scenes (which i’m behind on writing, sorry guys).

Also Oh Joy represented today AGAIN, God i love her (and not just cause she is good to the show, and has been on the show, and watches the bachelor with me).  CHeck it out at OhJoy!!

And then my amazing photographer, Laure Joliet, that has been shooting the spaces after the reveals did a teaser post at her blog AT HOME AT HOME

And check apartment therapy in the afternoon, i hear something is happening there too.

AHHHHH, can i wear something you have all seen?  do people really care?  and at what point am i grabbing a ban-do for tomorrow night?

    emily – seriously cannot wait for your show. thanks for being amazing!

  5. So excited for the show!!! I am going to watch it and DVR it! It will be wonderful!

  6. Emily, I've been looking forward to the Secrets from a Stylist series ever since your special aired in August. So excited to see some fresh ideas on HGTV!

  7. Oh this is too exciting!!! For you too, I guess. :-)

    Anyway, you can wear any old thing you like. We will all probably be wearing sweats, so it won't take so much to impress us. Yay!

  8. I'm so excited for you. I've been counting down the days and I think wearing something you've already worn is 100% fine! No one cares. And I loveeeee Oh Joy! eeeee

  9. Emily- Yea! The purple counter I put on my blog sidebar reads 1 day, 6 hours, 30 minutes, 8 seconds. (Does it kill my blog when it's done counting?)

    I am so happy for you! Wear whatever you like, people will be blinded by the big smile on your face!

    Yep, saw a write up on Apartment Therapy today about a sneak-peek of episode 1. I'm blown away just from all these little sneak-peek images—I can't imagine how impressive a whole episode will be!!!! I can't wait! You should be so proud of yourself.

    Do you know if/when they will play the episodes on HGTV's website?

  13. I can't wait to see the reveal. Just read the teaser and the show is going to be amazing. Yes, of course you can wear the same thing. Please do, it will make me feel better about my own wardrobe. I know tonight and the season will be a huge success!

  14. yay! Emily, I am so excited for you. I've been trolling HGTV's website waiting for the big day. I'm sure you will look fantastic whatever you wear. Congrats!

    Today is the the day!
    Congratulations Emily.
    We are so excited for you and can't wait to see the show.

    Thank God for DVR! I'm not going to be able to watch the show until next week. Bummed. But also excited for you! I've been meaning to write to you ever since the first episode of Design Star. I knew you were going to win. Sure, sure you say, but really. Ask any of my friends. I actually really liked the monk-like simplicity of the room you created for Michael. And I loved your personality right from the start. I'm really a non-TV viewer, so this was my first ever experience of watching a reality show. And man, I could not get over how friggin' mean it was. I was actually crying at some point. So congrats on always keeping your composure and being successful.

    My style is much more simple than yours, and I like lots of color (hot pink to be specific) but I find the way you layer things fascinating. Good luck! Can't wait to watch.

  17. Good Luck I am sure your show will be a huge hit!
