If you followed our Curbly House renovation over the last few years, you probably know the highlight was getting to work with designer and stylist, Emily Henderson, to makeover four rooms in our home in just five days. Trust me, just going vintage shopping with Emily is like a college-level course in design, styling, and good taste. Well, now Emily's out with her very first book, Styled: Secrets for Arranging Rooms, from Tabletops to Bookshelves, and it is absolutely spectacular (we got our hands on one a little early and have already read it cover to cover).
First, a little throwback: remember when Emily appeared on our doorstep (with her friend Orlando to lend a hand) and helped us magically transform our entire house!? Here's what happened:
We learned an incredible amount from Emily in our whirlwind week together; and, I daresay, that working with her has influenced us more (work and style-wise) than anything else we've done in the last five years.

There won't be as much talk about 'Felicity', reality television, and you'll miss her rendition of, "Part of Your World" (from the Little Mermaid). But, your house will come out looking and feeling more like you, and that's a gift.
The book is filled with more than 1,000 unique styling ideas and 75 ridiculously beautiful rooms that'll inspire you embark on your own styling adventures. Here's some of what's in store:
