Reinvent Your Home with These 3 Tips from Emily Henderson

As an interior designer, TV host, and writer, Emily Henderson does it all – and does it in style. In her first book, Styled, she shares the tips and tricks she learned as a prop stylist at the start of her career. What’s a prop stylist, you ask? They’re the ones who bring a room to life for interior-design photo shoots by incorporating smaller decor items (think books, plants, hats etc.). Emily’s philosophy is that it’s these pieces that can take a room from “eh to amazing.” With that in mind, we’re dishing on three ways to reinvent your space – plus sharing a few of Emily’s tips.

The Living Room

Leave a lasting impression with bright accents and a perfectly styled coffee table. As Emily says, “Make it memorable.”

Emily’s Tip:
Color code: When it comes to organizing the small stuff, place items in the same palette together. That’s what will take a tabletop from disorganized chaos to Instagram gold.

The Bedroom  

This space is yours, so do you. Tranquil tones keep it relaxing and sophisticated, while some greenery ups the energy.

Emily’s Tip:
Here’s a novel idea: Showcase your latest reads on the bedside table. It has a soothing effect, and it’s pleasing to the eye.

The Dining Room

Comfy pillows. Natural details. Fun glassware. Hope you’re ready for guests, because they’ll never want to leave your table.

Emily’s Tip:
Welcome the weird. Whether it’s abstract art or a (somewhat strange) flea-market find – showcase these gems. Boring? You? Never.
