Just caught Secrets From a Stylist, the new show from Emily Henderson of Design Star and the Brass Petal blog, and I have to say that I adore the living room she designed. Of course, she had a gorgeous space to work with -- I'd take those built-in bookcases to dinner, buy them roses, and take them home to meet my mom -- but her eclectic, warm, and quirky style totally makes the room. (I will even excuse her for that god-awful set of antlers mounted to the bookshelf. And you know how I feel about animal heads and antlers.)
Emily's design gives me much-needed courage to try out some of my crazy ideas for our living room. I mean, if she can make "FDR chic," "British mod," and "Backpacker" work together so beautifully, I might have a chance of melding mid-century modern, rustic, and chinoiserie, right? (Then again, I have neither a hot carpenter, an industrious seamstress, nor a team of painters who don't seem at all pissed off to have to paint and repaint the bookshelves over and over again.)
Anyhoo, I'm just curious: if you had to pick three terms to describe your design aesthetic or style, what would they be?
