Why I want to learn upholstery

Another installment of the renovation of ‘Oh Joy’s’ new studio by Emily Henderson & Sam Gluck re-affirms that I reallyyyyy want to learn how to upholster furniture. And find a reason to search vintage stores for furniture. These chairs are amazing, but wait till you see how not-awesome they were before. Purchased for $80 each and then $80 to re-upholster.

Can I please move in?

This, my friends, is something I could move right into. Colors, patterns, design, a happy thing every place you look! Designers Emily Henderson & Samantha Gluck designed and decorated blogger/creator OhJoy’s new studio and revealed section 1 today: “The Living Room”. I tend to buy bright and colorful things, and realized from reading this post that I should therefore paint any walls where I live a neutral like gray or white because:

“if you are someone who loves color then you are going to tend to buy things that are colorful, right? So if you paint your walls a bright color and you are buying colorful furniture it can go ‘Willy Wonka’ or ‘SpongeBob’ really fast”

Duly noted!

Texture + Color + Plants= Rental makeover

Rentals usually mean white walls and no painting allowed. Interior designer Emily Henderson did an amazing living room makeover, adding tons of color and style in furniture & accessories- the before and afters look like completely different homes. Color + Texture + Plants= I want to move in ! Click the link for a how-to and decorating suggestions

How to style a room with just accessories

Sometimes just organizing a room and throwing in some plants, new pillows and a few picture frames does the trick. I love Emily Henderson’s style and how she spruced up this living room- something a quick trip to target, home goods and a plant store/home depot can fix!

re-decorating for a retiree

I love how the interior designer Emily Henderson uses bright colors and awesome patterns in all of her projects. She recently re-did the home of a woman living in a retirement home and turned it into something I would love to live in! Turqouise, teal and coral… GORGEOUS! My favorite part might be the little detail of building glass shelves into the window sills to create a vertical garden.

Side table styling

Have you ever given any thought to ‘styling’ a table- whether it be side table, nightstand or coffee table? Check out interior designer Emily Henderson’s easy DIY side table paint job, and how you can transform the feel of the table by some simple styling.
