Design Inspiration…Robyn Glaser and Emily Henderson
Design Milk asked Emily Henderson, HGTV designer and host of Secrets from a Stylist, to share 5 of her favorite things. She’s on of my favorite designers and it turns out that one of her favorites is prop stylist, Robyn Glaser.
Have you ever found yourself flipping through a magazine and being drawn in by the set design and add concept as much as the merchandise being featured? Well, that’s Robyn and her clients include Anthropologie, Target, Tiffany’s, Harper’s Baazar, New York Magazine, Neiman Marcus and Urban Outfitters to name a few. On top of that she also does cook books and food editorials including Bon Appetit and Food Network Magazine.
Looking at her portfolio reminds me that there’s an art in putting things together – but what strikes me the most in her set design is the casual way that life is represented. A crowded dining table, a messy couch, an ordinary dining room with extraordinary color. It’s life – the beauty is in how you look at it.
Which brings me back to Emily Henderson and why she’s always been one of my favorites. Whether it’s a $5,000 couch or a thrift store save, Emily brings it all together in a beautifully livable way. Style should be relatable and comfortable and both of these women do a really good job representing it that way.
So, where do you get your inspiration from? Do you have a favorite designer or magazine that inspires the look of your home?
