Why

Does this room look familiar?  If you watch Secrets from a Stylist it should.  I have a confession: I have a HUGE girl-crush on Emily Henderson (HGTV stylist extraordinaire and Design Star winner).  I think she’s fantastic- I love her personality, LOVE her rooms, I’m envious of her talent, and I want to be her bff. (Emily, if you’re reading this, I’m probably not a stalker, we should be friends!)

Anywho, today’s amazing room was her creation for a fantastically fun couple.  I wish I could take credit for the title of today’s post, but that was Emily’s genius concoction too.  It aired over the summer, but Pinterest reminded me just how much this room made me swoon.  Check out Emily’s break-down and sources here.

Why am I obsessed with it?  As always, her styling is flawless.  The chic vintage accessories seem effortlessly timeless.  Mix that with the graphic letter  on the dresser and the black and white sketched figures on the wallpaper and you have a space that’s got personality, sophistication, and just makes me smile.  I’m totally in love with mid-century dressers lately, so she gets major points for that amazing piece, too.

Bottom line? It’s graphic, its antique, its geeky (in the best possible way) and it’s sooo chic.  Emily hit the nail on the head again.

    This has got to be my favorite room she had done on the show thus far. I’m in love with the black/white graphic balanced by the soothing solid green base. Definetly something I would go for in my own master bedroom. Only item I would skip on would be the drum set! ;-)

    • I could never pick a fave! I love the balance she achieves in all her spaces.
      In my house it wouldn’t be a drum set, instead it would be keyboards and synthesizers and hubby’s other toys that are slowly taking over our home office.
