When Emma Chamberlain’s house tour dropped earlier this year, we all collectively coveted the space and criticised our younger selves for not having the foresight to start a YouTube channel and become viral sensations. The bright and airy LA home is an eclectic mix of earthy tones, one-of-a-kind art and marble surfaces. Emma described it as “a mixture of everything I love.”
Essentially, it looks like a dream life Pinterest board and that’s pretty much how it started out. “I’m a mood board type of girl,” Emma told Architectural Digest. “I scoured every corner of the internet, every weird, deep hole on Pinterest.” With the help of interior designers Ashley Drost and Marie Trohman from Proem Studio, she brought the moodboard to life.
While our lives can’t all look like Pinterest boards with multi-million dollar mansions and swimming pools at 21-years-old, you can still take some aesthetic cues from Emma’s home tour to create a tranquil sanctuary for yourself. Instead of beating yourself up for not starting a YouTube channel as a pre-teen, shop our edit of earthy, minimalist homewares to give your space an Emma Chamberlain-esque update.
One of the first things you notice about Emma’s house is how bright and spacious it is. Green foliage is visible through the many windows and houseplants are in nearly every room. Recreate this effect with these waxy peach flowers and rich green leaves that add a bright and air purifying touch to your space.
There’s a cute story behind the art in Emma’s home. Most of the paintings are done by her dad whose colourful signature style fits right in. This print from BLANC is equally vibrant. Plus, it depicts a Saturday morning making coffee which is one of Emma’s favourite activities.
It’s well-known how much Emma loves coffee. She has an entire kitchen drawer dedicated to the stuff! This mushroom coffee blend gives her favourite hot beverage a wellness update. It’s your all-in-one daily drink for energy, focus and immunity.
POP OF COLOUR
Emma’s dressing room is filled with cute and colourful accessories and this small handbag from Shrimps is just her style. Made in orange wool boucle, it features a metal clasp and detachable, adjustable straps.
Neutral homewares help cultivate a cosy, cabinlike feel in Emma’s home. This check cushion has been hand painted onto a soft recycled calico. Each cushion is unique with colour variations being part of the charm. You may even see faint pencil marks from when the design was being placed before painting, matching the unique, artistic atmosphere of Emma’s deeply personal space.
You can never have too many houseplants and indoor plants add to the bright and airy atmosphere of Emma’s home. This statement Kentia plant comes in its own pot for a calming, tranquil effect.
Emma’s home is filled with crafty, idiosyncratic ornaments that make the space truly unique. Ceramic Room’s wonky vases are just the trick for adding some of that playful, creative energy to your own space. They’re made using air-dry clay then hand painted with a purposefully naive finish.
Green is one of Emma’s favourite colours as evidenced by her all-green kitchen. These green calcite crystals match that vibe while providing refreshing, calming and cooling energy.
LIGHT, BRIGHT AND HAPPY
Perhaps the most enviable fixture of Emma’s home is the amount of natural light it gets, but sadly, we can’t all live in a sunny LA home with lots of windows. If you’re stuck in a cold, dark room that gets approximately 30 minutes of natural light per day this time of year, consider investing in a SAD lamp. This one from Lumie simulates sunlight to boost your mood and energy. Plus, it looks cute too.
Add a little luxury to your everyday with Pelegrims gently exfoliating hand cleanser that helps repair and hydrate the skin while looking like a beautiful ornament in its own right. Crushed walnut shell buffs away dead skin cells while English Ortega Grape Vine Extract leaves hands feeling soft and healed.
