One of my favorite things about this time of year is HGTV's annual search for the network's next big Design Star. Watching the show's Sunday night episodes has become a beloved summertime tradition in my home, as twelve hopeful finalists audition for their very own TV show. This season the talent looks better than ever, but I've got my eyes set on one girl in particular -- Emily Henderson, who has my vote through and through!
Not too long ago I was introduced to Emily by a mutual friend and have been pouring over her beautiful portfolio ever since. She's a stylist by day, design star hopeful by night, and has worked with the best of them, from Martha Stewart Living, to Real Simple, to Domino, just to name a few.
Though she came uncomfortably close to being cut in the first round of eliminations last Sunday, I'm hopeful for Emily! I think America is going to absolutely fall in love with her casual charm, sense of authenticity, and quirky sense of humor!
So what do you say? Won't you join me in rooting for my friend Emily?!
