I’m so glad you’ve made your way to The Classic Style Diaries! I’m Emily, a residential interior designer and firm believer that when you are surrounded by a beautiful environment made up of things (and people) that you love, you are 10x happier. Also, big believer in prosecco, quesadillas, Anthropologie candles, cozy blankets and golden doodles.
Since the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” days, I have been in awe of the affect a transformed and customized space can have on people. I went to school for interior design and currently work for an amazing design firm. After tying the knot with my high school sweetheart and buying our first home, I’ve been re-acquainted with the rush and satisfaction of creating a space that I am absolutely obsessed with. Enter: The Classic Style Diaries.
Similar to the affect the perfect outfit has on your mood – our surroundings are a huge part of our mood and outlook on each day. Our homes are our safe places, our sanctuaries, and so much more. Why not make them pleasant to look at? I love the work that my team does for our clients, but we can only reach so many people in person.
My hope for this blog is to expand my reach and inspire more people to create their own sanctuaries at home. And, I’d be lying if I didn’t mention that it’s also a bit of a creative outlet for me. On the blog I plan on sharing design advice, updates that we’re doing to our own home, retail vendor recommendations, design boards and so much more.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll continue to follow along!
