I miss your sweet embrace.

In two days there will be no more secrets between us.  I hate living with you like this.  You turn away when i crawl into bed, you pretend not to notice when i take secret phone calls at night.  You analyze every word i say, every expression i make, desperate for a clue.  And i saw your quiet tears the other day when I said once again, 'I'm sorry, but i just can't tell you.'  
The lack of communication is just killing us.

In two days, there will be no more secrets between us. 

(**update, i'm not talking about Brian, he's in the loop.  I was talking about you and me.  clearly it wasn't a very good joke, 'cause people think i'm discussing my relationship.  sorry.)

JUST TWO DAYS.

Until then, here is another outfit to room that I did a while ago.  
Vanessa Bruno (the fashion) is the shiznit. 

And here is a link to an interview that both Michael an I did, same questions, dueling answers.

HGTV sunday night 7pm pst, or 10pm est and pst.
Win or lose, lets party.  hardy.

  1. Love the outfit and room! And can't wait til the finale!!! I might have to try to find a place to watch it. I can't stand waiting til in comes online! If I lived a couple hours closer I would come to your party! Darn. I'm a couple years off from living in LA.

  3. Can I have that room? Can you make it work in a 1920s french inspired cottage?

    I'm dying over here! And no, daddy won't let mommy out to play this weekend....I told him, whats 10 hours round trip on a Sunday? Nada.

  4. Man I SO wish I could go to your viewing party. I'll have some churros in your honor. And thanks for the interview shout-out. YOU are the shiznit.

  5. Wow. I never even considered that the confidentiality agreements associated with a show/contest like this would apply to a contestant's family. I can't imagine how hard it would be not to talk to your husband about this. :(

  6. Good luck. I am so excited for you. ((((HUGS))))

  8. I have a feeling if/when you get your show, it will be a breeze, because it seems to me that matching photos of already-created outfits and rooms would be way harder than creating your own. I've never been able to comprehend how that's done (you and the City Sage must know EVERYTHING on the internet). Clearly you're an ace at the matching images part, so tv show = no problem.

    So sorry the confidentiality bit has been tough on you and your cat.

  9. Gorgeous room. I love your show idea, it's quirky just like you. I have a feeling you will win. I think you would bring a lot more of 'something different' to HGTV. HGTV needs more granola!
    But it's a rich granola, like with extra cherries and nuts.
    Best of luck, I will be rooting for you!

  11. Love it! Sadly, I don't think the hubs would be crazy about me jetting off to LA & leaving him w/ the four kiddos to make it to your party. Darn this real life crap! :)

  12. I cannot WAIT for Sunday. :) I'm SO hoping you pulled it off. I have a feeling you did and I"m going to be SO excited for you. This is truly the first time that I've been really interested in who pulled it off. :) YAY! :) Can't wait to hear from you after all is revealed!

  14. Well, I wanna be in the know and since I'll be watching the show I'm gonna have to watch your face between tweeting and the show and being snarky. Oh Lord, help us all. Now if only her outfit would have been purple. HEAVEN! Oh wait, I'm kidnapping you to design my blank slate canvas house anyway. HAHA

  15. ugh. i'm SO sad (and upset) that Design Star isn't airing in Canada :( We tend to get some Amercian reality series...oh anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months AFTER it's already aired in the U.S. Sucks for me.

    Best of luck to you! From reading your blog I really like your work :)

  16. I just found a link to your blog at makingitlovely.com

    We live in Southern Oregon and my kids and I watch every week -rooting for you. It is so nice to read your blog and see how REAL you are.

    I love your style and I LOVE YOUR GLASS ROOM. So homey, pretty, rich...Keep up the great work, winner or not.

    Do you not live in Portland anymore?

    Keeping it real in GP,

    Kris

  18. I hate secrets. But, I'm completely in love with your blog & your style. Freakin' amazing.

    I'll be following you no matter where you end up (as long as you drag the blog along for the ride!)

    Best of luck!

  19. I got your joke and I think most people did (hopefully!). I love your sense of humor and your wit! I've enjoyed reading this blog and I'm looking forward to what happens and keeping my fingers crossed that you won! If not, you should have, but you still have a wonderful career and future ahead!

  20. I love you! I've been a huge fan of most things HGTV for year, but I really feel like they need you. This boho-chic, quirky cute blonde would change up the network. Just like Antonio did last year. I like Michael too, but I am going to keep my fingers crossed for Team Emily

  21. Emily, I'm pulling for you!!! I hired you to do a shoot for Redbook with David Tsay back in January (remember, you pulled the plants for that portrait?). I've been following along all season and I've even made my husband watch DS. I was so excited that you made it to the final round. Go Emily- woohoo! I'm going to post about the finale tomorrow on my blog. Best, Ann

  25. I love your design! I can't wait to watch this Sunday. I was reading another blog and was reminded of you http://www.laylagrayce.com/blog/2010/08/18/express-your-style-live-it-wear-it-3/

    ReplyDelete
  26. I also thought it was funny, and I knew you couldn't be talking about your Hubs. I mean, duh!

    I am so hopeful that you win tomorrow night. Srsly, if you don't win on HGTV please work on TV somewhere & we'lll watch. I promise!

  27. Saw a link to your blog on makingitlovely.com (another fabulous blog).
    I've been cheering for you all along (and now just made my husband come look at the pictures of your glass room), and I can't wait to see you win! And then watch your show! Love from North Carolina.

  28. Emily, I am soooooo happy to finally see what you can do! I hope that DS has been a good experience for you because the way it has been presented to the masses has not done you justice! I love your style, I love your show idea, and I think that you are super talented!
    Come back to Portland-you are one of us! G from "Happy Rock"

  29. One more day!!! So excited for you no matter the outcome.

  30. Tonight is the night your life will change. I'm so confident that you come out the winner.

  31. your blog has already given me confidence to paint our apartment! i hope you win, keep blogging, i love all the tips!

  32. Woohoo, so close, can't wait! Have a fab finale party!

  33. So since brian won't let you read the comments on hgtv, and i'm a super huge creep and do i thought i'd send you some of the super nice ones

    I have liked Emily from the very first show. I am not a designer; I am a customer. I would trust Emily
    to redisign some of the spaces in my house. I like the rich feel she imparts. Other people may not
    like that kind of design but your house is your house. You have to live there. I want to live in Emily's
    style.

    I was not impressed with the Design stars this year until I finally got to see Emily do something on her own. She is the best Design Star by far. I hope she wins and is allowed to host her own show. She really has a sense of style. I can see her glass room in my house. I can't wait to see this weeks final show. Great job Emily.


    that dress Emily is wearing is very flattering to her bod. Great hips. Might even be able to change Mikey's religion, but I doubt it.
    (this one is my favorite. sexy bod, em)


    Emily's show idea is actually kind of interesting. If it were up to me I would call her show Emily's WearHouse and I would totally watch it! I hope she wins...

  34. Hey! You don't know me, but I stumbled onto your blog today after a trip to apartmenttherapy.com... I've been watching Design Star this season, and I have to tell you, I've been rooting for you this whole time. You're so authentic, and I like to think I identify with your style... As a matter of fact, I sort of wish I could borrow your brain for awhile.... not in a creepy way. It's just that I get too cerebral and stumped as to how to "make eclectic work" with antique/modern/bohemian that I'm left getting nowhere with it. If you win tonight (and I'm soooo hoping you do), I'm going to really love getting more inspiration from you. ;) I'm keeping my fingers crossed!! Go, Emily!

    ReplyDelete
  35. yay, you've definitely got my vote tonight emily! good luck!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I just have to say GOOD LUCK (Although I just know your going to win, you deserve it)!! I love your blog (sad, this is my first comment on it though). You have made me realize that I too need to follow my dreams, so for that thank you! TEAM EMILY ALL THE WAY!!!
