Currently Coveting: Emily Henderson’s Eclectic Style

I have developed a bit of a blog crush on Emily Henderson, who is from last season of HGTV’s Design Star. I had never watched Design Star up until this week, when I realized last season was available to watch on Hulu. Insert my new obsession. I’ll admit I kind of half-watched it while working, but I paid enough attention to pick up on some great ideas. It’s pretty much like Project Runway but with stylists and designers for the home, and it’s perfect for learning new DIY tips to bring to your own makeover projects.

I am crushing on this card catalogue Emily Henderson found at a flea market and made her own by adding pin-legs and topping with a mirror. Totally simple and definitely do-able, so I’ll continue to scope Craigslist every day for a (reasonably priced) card catalog. Once the weather becomes a little less sweltering, I will bring my search to flea markets and cross my fingers I find something, because I think the older sense of character would go well in our 1940s home. I really love mixing vintage finds with bright, modern pieces…and tiny drawers basically make me go bananas. Where do you find your design inspiration for your home?

Have a fun weekend everyone, hopefully I’ll have more before and after house photos to share once Monday rolls around!
