Emily Henson, a prop stylist and interior decorator, first debuted their home when she entered the Small Cool Contest. Showing off bright colors and clean white lines, this small but decorative home features plenty of DIY goodness and a lot of love.
When I first walked in immediately I thought , "this looks like Anthropologie", to no surprise the store was actually one of her first clients. Each room is filled with sentimental details like photographs and collectables, and there are bursts of color everywhere. During the shoot she showed me their very large tri level back yard which has not been manicured for Winter yet, but we had fun setting up a garden dinner party setting. Another great feature is that they converted the garage into her office/ craft room and music room. There are cool and patterned textiles, soft and fuzzy pillows and throws, sweeping window treatments, children's toys, random collected vintage pieces and so much character.
