Emily Henderson

Middle child (4th out of 6), 56th generation Utahnian, former Mormon, and serial monogamist (been with husband 19 years). I grew up by a creek in rural Oregon but lived in New York and then LA for 20 years now. I used to can my own tuna and I’m sensitive to being called either “albino” or “bubbly.” I like any TV show that involves teenagers almost kissing and dislike violence in a violent way. I have two small kids and two dead cats.

What Makes Me Tick

  • Sign/Enneagram/Hogwarts House:

    Virgo / 7 / No Idea

  • Design Aesthetic in 5 words:

    Happy, vintage-inspired (any decade) with a heavy dose of ‘Footloose meets Marie Antoinette’ (that’s five words, right?)

  • Favorite EHD Room Of All Time:

    Turning that barn into a hotel lobby (for the Samsung partnership) was a fantasy job and it was just such an exciting space.

  • Title of Memoir:

    “I Said ‘Yes,’ Had Fun, Made Soup and One Time, I Sat Down.”

  • Silliest Secret Single Behavior:

    I don’t put lids on things. Sometimes, I rest the lid on top of the jar but don’t screw it, which is far worse for the next person that shakes it.

  • Most Likely To...

    Inconveniently rest a lid on a jar.

  • Favorite Place To Shop For Home Decor:

    Flea market (and of them)…And Target. Duh.

  • Favorite Place To Shop For Fashion:

    Ulla Johnson and Madewell.

  • Dining Room Rug:


  • Reversing Book Spines:

    Yay (but just during Halloween or when super necessary).

  • Wallpaper or Paint?


  • Maximalism:

    Yay and Nay
