We’re all a little bit guilty of showing the best version of our lives on social media. The perfect instagram snap of your lunch that doesn’t show all the washing up. That adorable story about your kids shared with facebook friends that omits the screaming match they had 5 minutes later. But Emily Henson’s gorgeous new book Life Unstyled provides a bit of an antidote to this. Yes, these homes are beautiful, but more importantly they’re lived in. We celebrated with a launch event at Anthropologie, after Emily led a workshop for making papier-mâché lampshades!
There was also a wonderful blog tour visiting some of our favourite interiors blogs. But don't worry if you missed it, because we've gathered all the links together. So grab a cup of something warming, and settle in for some cosy reading...
Lobster and Swan started us off with a gorgeous review admiring “Emily’s manifesto for creating a stylish home that is beautiful but lived in”, and showcasing some of her favourite pages from the book. Including this bath of our dreams, surrounded by real bathroom clutter. Read her review here.
Over on Makelight, Emily Quinton shared some lovely autumnal shots of the book reflecting its ‘cosy and homely’ style which had us feeling all hyggelig. Take a look at her post here.
Another gorgeous review followed at Décor Art UK declaring Life Unstyled the most relaxed interiors book she’d ever seen. Read the full review here.
Heart Home Magazine shared a lovely extract from the book, focusing on a tranquil home in Brixton. Find the full preview here.
Last but not last, we finished up the week at My Warehouse Home with a selection of their favourite shots from this ‘cover-to-cover delight’, and tips for creating the look in your own home too. Read their post here.
