If any of you are design nerds like me, then you have been watching Secrets of a Stylist on HGTV. In my opinion, Emily Henderson is one of the first designers on the network to actually be qualified to have her own show. After winning Design Star she has shown her design aesthetic to be fresh, young, and have a certain bohemian hipness that is very appealing. With a photo stylist background, she is able to create attractive and thoughtfully curated collections of furnishings and decor without resorting to the cliche design elements featured on typical design shows (ex. faux finishing). I believe this is why her fan base is continuing to grow.
Recently, she posted some of her favorite vendors in the LA area for furniture and accessories. After comparing notes, there were some places she mentioned that I haven't been to yet, and others that may deserve a second look. This means there will be a fun day ahead of me checking out some new stores and window shopping. Latte and camera in hand...bring it on!
