Emily Henderson: Interior Designer + HGTV Host, Secrets From A Stylist

Secret Resources From A Stylist

Yes, I am undeniably, Emily Henderson's biggest fan...so much so that I have to admit to getting a little giddy putting together this post! Reason 1: She's a really talented Interior Designer, which is my secret job crush....and it's been fun to see her rise since winning HGTV's Design Star. I also love her point of view and how she helps other people to find their own as well, combining bold, graphic ideas, new pieces and vintage finds. I could site many examples, but you should check out her WEBSITE or show, "Secrets From A Stylist," and see for yourself. Reason 2: She is totally herself....on the show, off the show, when she writes, wherever. She has a unique, honest and fun voice that I just think is cool. Reason 3: She wears these awesome, beat-up boots all the time that I really like...and I think that's a plausible reason. Most importantly, particularly for this post, she is willing to share some really great resources so that we can all get a piece of Emily's shopping style...and perhaps even a chance at channeling her talent for curating, just in time to primp (or pimp) our wardrobes and homes for the holidays.

  1. 45 Three Modern Vintage 45 threes modern vintageVISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: 45 Three Modern Vintage 1051 1/2 South Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles [Fairfax, Mid City]Staci has such an good eye for unpredictable things.  She's fashion forward and her store is curated so well.  And affordable.
  2. Steven Alan Outpost steven alan outpostVISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: Steven Alan Outpost 1937 1/2 Hillhurst Avenue, Los Angeles [Los Feliz]Here's what happens in my head:  "Hey, Emily (says head).  Lets just pop into our neighborhood shop after lunch at Alcove. We don't have to buy, just look around. Just a quick little 'pop'. Then $250 later, I walk out.  Everything is on sale so its less than the real store and just good.
  3. Lankershim Vintage Stores lankershim vintageLOCATION: Lankershim Vintage Furniture Row From 5616-5721 Lankershim Boulevard, North Hollywood [NoHo]Stores like Santiago's, Cruz's, Angel's and Noho Vintage. These are my Mexican brothers.  There are actually 5 vintage stores all in a row in North Hollywood, that have trash and treasure. They have some high-end stuff and some not, but I always find unique pieces.  They negotiate, they'll deliver and they are super friendly and knowledgable. They are the Mexican vintage furniture mafia because they are all related somehow, and I love them.
  4. Rose Bowl Fleamarket rose bowlVISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: Rose Bowl Fleamarket 1001 Rosebowl Drive, Pasadena [Pasadena]My favorite place in the world.  I go at sunrise, with coffee, say hi to all my friend/vendors (friendors, if you will) and literally get overwhelmed with excitement of the possibilities of the day. Yes, i think i have a borderline unhealthy emotional relationship with vintage furniture.
  5. Little Doms little domsVISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: Little Doms 2128 Hillhurst Avenue, Los Angeles [Los Feliz]Best restaurant atmosphere in L.A.  GREAT Bloody Marys, fantastic Old Fashioned's and sure, the food is good too.
  6. Inheritance inheritanceVISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: Inheritance 8055 Beverly Boulevard, Los Angeles [Beverly Blvd., Mid City]Mike has an incredibly curated store that is tiny but somehow, I can spend an hour there because there are so many amazing things to pick up and look at.  It's home design/accessories/tabletop and completely unique.  AND he's affordable - not cheap, but well priced.
  7. The Best Fish Taco In Ensenada fish tacosVISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: Best Fish Taco In Ensenadas 1650 Hillhurst Avenue, Los Angeles [Los Feliz]Yes, that is what they call their restaurant - and its accurate.  Its on Hillhurst in my neighborhood.  Each delicious fish taco is $2, unless you are a cute girl and sometimes they are $1. I have no idea why, and I'm not the only one who has noticed this. It's hilarious.
  8. Mohawk General Store mohawkVISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: Mohawk General Store 4011 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles [Silverlake]This store has amazing jewelry, clothes, furniture, candles, pouches - I want everything here.  It's high end, but its worth a pop into, for sure.
  9. The Oaks Gourmet  tbe oaks gourmetVISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: 1915 North Bronson Avenue, Los Angeles [Franklin, Hollywood]This is my tradition every morning (especially when i'm shooting and no time to brew).  I get delicious coffee here and the sesame chicken salad for lunch is perfection.
  10. Heath Ceramics heath ceramicsVISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: Heath Ceramics 7525 Beverly Boulevard, Los Angeles [Beverly Blvd, Mid City]Such a pretty store with everything from beautiful stoneware dishes, amazing pottery by Atwater Pottery, beautiful cheeseboards, tea towels - really anything you need to look and feel like the chicest party host ever.
