OB. SESSED. {with Emily Henderson}


My friend Kevin — he of Vintage Roadtrip 1 & 2 fame, if you've been following me for a while — has the best taste of anyone I know. Just look at his perfectly perfect living room above. (The rug? Swoon!) We're like design soulmates, except he's an utter minimalist and I'm a complete... uh, maximalist? (He also loves mint, and I haaaate mint, and we only just discovered this and the rift may never be fully repaired.)

But, really, on our Vintage Roadtrip jaunts (we're hitting Palm Springs next month!), we agree to work from opposite ends of the thrift store so we cannot reach for the same thing at the same time. I have a beautiful decanter on my bar cart that makes me feel super-guilty every time I see it, because I snatched it before he could in a Lewes, Delaware, church group thrift store. (That was, in fact, the moment we agreed on the opposite-ends rule. Now things are much smoother.)

But I digress. During a long-overdue catch-up session last week, Kevin turned me on to decorator/stylist Emily Henderson's blog and I'm smitten. I've actually been unknowingly admiring her work in HGTV magazine (my second favorite magazine, after Country Living), but now I'm gobbling up her blog archives like it's mah job.

I want *everything.* Literally, I was about to run to the thrift store earlier to look for ballerina figurines that I could spraypaint neon pink, when I sat myself down and reminded myself that a) I'm not really into ballet; b) I have no room for anything else anyway. Still. I will probably spraypaint ballerina figurines one day. Soon.

Enjoy.
