What does the professional chef cook for herself? What vitamins does the doctor take? Where does the travel agent go for vacation? There’s a natural fascination with experts’ personal tastes within their fields of expertise. And in the case of interior design, what does the designer’s home look like? This curiosity explains the interest in designer Emily Henderson’s personal home, with its traffic on her blog far exceeding that of her client projects. So, when work on her Los Angeles home wrapped up and she found herself longing for some time outside the city, the two circumstances led her to a second home in the mountains.
Located two hours, hundreds of decibels and millions of people away from her Los Angeles abode, Emily’s mountain house is an exploration of comfortable simplicity. Warm natural woods, clean minimalist shapes and neutral colors with punctuations of black give the home a Scandinavian flair perfectly suited to its elevated environs.
