The single biggest problem I confront with my clients, friends and family is ‘style paralysis’. They are just stuck and because of that they don’t do ANYTHING for fear that what they will do will waste money, time or generally be embarrassing and lose them friends. I wrote and produced this book for all of those people. It starts by helping you find out what your style is (through a style diagnostic). Are you midcentury meets 70’s? Contemporary with a traditional bent? Once you are diagnosed you learn exactly what that means and what you should be buying. Next comes my 10 steps to styling your home – Where do you start? How do you shop with confidence? And where the hell do you put everything so it looks good together?
Styled takes you through, room by room, vignette by vignette, sofa by sofa to show you how to styled each piece so your whole space looks intentional, designed and like you. We all want that effortlessly designed space, right? The room that just looks perfectly thrown together – casual and inviting, yet cohesive and beautiful? Well, thats what we do as stylist. It’s less about the perfectly matching high end sofa set and more about infusing your room with personality without it looking like a thrift store. It’s honestly not as hard as it sounds … if you buy this book and let it help you.
“Emily’s book, STYLED: Secrets for Arranging Rooms, from Tabletops to Bookshelves takes rooms and vignettes that could seem hopelessly enigmatic and breaks them down, bit by bit, to give her readers ideas and explanations and the tools to recreate or even just understand why something is placed the way it is and why it works.”
– Justina Blakeney of The Jungalow
“In her new book, STYLED, stylist and design star Emily Henderson focuses on identifying your style with her signature diagnostic quiz, then applying your personality room by room using stunning homes, handpicked by Henderson, for inspiration.”

“Henderson, HGTV Design Star winner, offers her tips for making the rooms in your home look like the ones in magazines. You can have all the right colors, furniture and organization, but without a few styling tips, it may still fall flat. First Henderson helps you figure out your style (are you seventies or traditional? Modern glam or bohemian?) then after hipping you to a few industry terms, she takes you through 10 easy steps to transform your rooms. A final room-by-room guide helps you find style secrets that work with each space.”
