Style file: Mary Emmerling
Although I have a very eclectic sense of style, I find myself being continually drawn to classic designs. Perhaps this is why I'm obsessed with the Arizona home of Country Home's Creative Director, Mary Emmerling. This shot of her home office was taken in September, 2004 and is every bit as relevant now as it was 3 years ago. Mary stuck to design staples such as kilim rugs, leopard print stools, black and white photography, and of course a sawhorse desk! The combo is absolutely timeless. Below are some more pics of her style infused home. The Mason Desk from Williams Sonoma Home is almost identical to Mary's. For lighting, try Ikea's Antifoni table lamp, Ottomans- Ballard Design's Courbe Ottoman, Pottery Barn for wicker baskets and ABC for rugs.
