Spotlight On: Emily Henderson


So let’s talk about this bedroom by designer Emily Henderson, host of HGTV’s “Secrets from a Stylist” and whom has the coolest background story of any designer I’ve ever discovered. Don’t believe me? Just read about it here.


Isn’t she cute? She shadowed under one of my all-time favorite people in the universe, Jonathan Adler, and obviously you can see just by this bedroom that she incorporated a little bit of that funkiness that he’s known for. Unlike Adler, she’s more of a classy lady.


The first thing I adore in this room is that navy velvet headboard, like could anything be more gorgeous? And can you believe that it’s from Target? It’s so tightly tufted, it’s a work of art. Flanked alongside that masterpiece are two campaign chests painted in Sherwin-Williams Gauntlet Gray each with a covetable geometric gold lamp, she keeps the majority of the room neutral and let’s that headboard shine. The bed is covered in a West Elm linen duvet cover that keeps this space looking fresh. An open black bench stands at the foot of the bed and gives the room a subtle contrast and extra storage. A classic textured rug is layered over light hardwood floors.




This amazing bedroom doesn’t stop with that. Of course she uses an Adler Ventana two-tier chandelier which hangs from a stunning vaulted ceiling, and I love that she uses it without those horrific shades. The room feels so light and airy painted in Sherwin-Williams Crushed Ice; it doesn’t distract from the true beauty that is that headboard. Across the room, you’ll see a mid-century teak dresser paired with a gold faux bamboo mirror and funky accent pieces. It’s always a nice surprise to see a retro piece in a room. That’s the Adler charm!



All in all, this is one beautiful space. It isn’t too over-the-top, but it does have some charming accents. I always love an eclectic room, mixed with a couple of different periods but always brought back with one or two modern pieces.
