Our guest today is interiors expert, Anna Smith, founder of the blog and interior design firm, Annabode and Company. Anna lives in Colorado and really enjoys working face to face with clients in her community. But she also does e-design for people across the country. We particularly love seeing her own home as she and her husband renovate and decorate a 1970s ranch that they bought before ever seeing it in person! In our conversation, we're really excited to hear about her very actionable suggestions when it comes to approaching the development of your own personal aesthetic and making decor decisions over time.
Hannah Bullivant is our lovely guest today! She is a stylist for dozens of brands and loves her work. But a couple of personal upheavals led her to completely change her lifestyle and the aesthetic of her home and surroundings. On her blog, she chronicles her transformation and the home that has resulted from celebrating every day delights that change with the seasons. And while she may have purged her old eclectic style in favor of embracing a simpler approach, she has not lost that feeling of abundance in how she lives. And today, she's going to share with us exactly how she does it!
Today we're talking with Emily Henson. By day, she's a professional stylist making brands look their absolute best. But the other side to Emily is the blogger who feels that only showing perfectly styled vignettes, rooms and whole houses is unproductive and unhealthy for our self esteem. She's the author of three books. Modern Rustic and Bohemian Modern came first. And then most recently, her book Life Unstyled, which is a beautiful companion to her blog of the same name. Emily is on a mission to show the behind-the-scenes reality of what real homes look like when they are actually being used by real people! She is a breath of fresh air to all of us who want to find the balance between beauty and chaos! Let's get started.
Today we're airing another episode of "On the LYC." You've probably figured this out but, LYC stands for Little Yellow Couch, and it symbolizes everything we're about: making time to have meaningful conversations with friends while sitting comfortably in a beautiful space. Or at least on an aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture! Over the past few seasons, we've been collecting little bits of wisdom from the stylists and designers we've had on the show and quoting them on Instagram. When looking at these quotes all together, we've noticed several different themes emerge. So for 2017, we're going to base each of our "On The LYC" episodes on a different theme related to creating a home you love. March is all about finding the PURPOSE & MISSION of your home!
