Blue bells

    I only wear blue.  You think i’m kidding, but catch me on 6 days out of the week and I’ll be wearing blue. Navy blue, blue-ish grey, electric blue, teal, turquoise, no baby blue, you get the idea.  I look good in blue.  White is too easy to mess up, black is boring… Read More …

Another room for me to not cook in

  Dream kitchens.  Don’t we all have one?  My only problem with kitchens is that I don’t know exactly what to do in them. Yes, it is where we open the wine, pop the popcorn, and store my pretty dishes.  But not being much of a cook, I find all these ‘free range ovens’ a… Read More …

Hindsight is, woah, like 1000/1000

    Dios mio. We are in for a treat, for I, Emily Henderson, came upon some self-righteous stylist gold today.  It was your average rainy day in LA, at the thrift stores, when I found not one but TWO 1960-1970’s home decorating books.  Let’s begin with the Better Homes and Garden book.  I had… Read More …

Home sweet home…

  Many of you haven’t seen my home in L.A. yet, so I thought I would give you a little sneak peek. Nope. kidding, not my house.  Amy Nuensinger’s house to be exact….for now at least..(sinister laugh).  So we shot there all last week and it truly is one of the most beautiful houses I’ve… Read More …

Kick it in the walls

  So I don’t really ‘do bold’ in my own apartment.  I used to, oh, boy did I used to.  My apartment in college was basically a burlesque house.  BUT,  I still wear bold, fo shizzle. Sometimes I have to pretend that it’s not me in the mirror and I ask myself, “If I saw… Read More …

Hot Pink

      I’m propping a room right now with a LOT of hot pink, which if you are over 30 i like to call ‘fuscia’, which I’m not sure if that is even the case, nor do I know how to spell it apparently. But I like pink, second to blue.  And no, not… Read More …

Tune-in Tokyo

  So, I’m a huge fan of a mattress on the floor; I’m also into the pretty window light, curtains, lamp, and bedside table in this shot.  But… huh… that’s interesting. We have a special little drawing on the wall, don’t we?…  huh.  I can’t quite put my finger on what bothers me about it…. Read More …

No, I won't make my bed, thank you.

  Ok, this kind of styling isn’t for everyone. It’s like being vegeterian.  Some people are super into it and can’t get enough, and to others it just doesn’t make sense.  ‘Why would you take a picture of an unmade bed and haphazard lamp where the unplugged cord gets the most attention?’ A meat eater… Read More …

If you need me, I'll be in my car

  The good news:  Todays shoot was totally pleasant, everyone so nice, pretty pictures, great location, etc.  The bad news : It took me 2 1/2 hours, stuck in traffic, to get home.  The good news:  There were 15 leftover peonies stems that now adorn my dining room.  The bad news: In case you weren’t… Read More …

Perhaps you buy me flowers, no?

  Dios mio,  I do love flowers.  In fact, I’ve never met a flower I didn’t like.  You might say, what about Carnations? Baby’s Breath? Daisies?  I like them all. Not all the time, but any flower can have it’s moment in the right vessel, for the righty party, mixed with other perfect flowers.  … Read More …
