Secrets From a Stylish Graphic Designer

I finally caught this weeks episode of Secrets From a Stylist on HGTV staring Emily Henderson. This episode, like the ones before it, did not disappoint. Secrets From a Stylist is quickly becoming my favorite show and I look forward to tuning in each week. Thank goodness for DVR. There was a particular buzz in the days leading up to this episode because of the featured guests clients: Joy and Bob Cho. Joy is a graphic designer and author of Oh Joy!, a blog dedicated to design, fashion and food. It’s a must read. It’s beautifully done. Bob is not a comedian although he plays one on TV!

If that’s not impressive enough, turns out Joy has also designed a line of wallpaper for Hygge and West. And wouldn’t you know, it happens to be the wallpaper that Emily selected to adorn the walls of the Cho’s Living Room! Coincidence? I think not. Regardless, I think it was a pretty genius move by Emily. Because it’s awesome? Yes. But also because it is familiar and personal to the client. Introducing wallpaper without a clients approval is pretty gutsy but in this case it’s a perfect fit. I mean hey, it’s obvious the client already likes it! The client designed it!

Take a look at the mood board that Emily created showing the main design elements of the Cho’s new Living Room:

The shimmery wallpaper, Petal Pusher, shown in white and gold, is located in the top right corner of the board. Isn’t it fun? I love metallic anything. Other colors ways, as well as different wallpaper styles designed by Joy, are available for purchase on Hygge and West’s website. Happy shopping!
