Designer Spotlight – Emily Katz
As you know in that book of mine, STYLED we featured the spaces of some insanely talented artists, designers, and creatives that made me, and the book look REALLY good. One of those talented artists being the one and only Emily Katz (and her partner Adam) who is a blogger, macrame artist, designer, and true bohemian at heart. Her home is insane, in a good way, filled with layered textiles, a menagerie of jungle life, and some of her own macrame pieces. It’s eclectic, unexpected and so artful. Take a look:
Emily isn’t a one trick pony though. She has recently launched a series of macrame workshops where you, yes you, (even me with my sausage fingers) can go to a class and learn how to weave your own macrame wall hanging or plant hanger. She has courses all over the nation this year and her classes are quickly filling up so be sure to check one out in a nearby city. These things are so beautiful – organic and modern.
And for those of you that aren’t quite ready to get their creative juices flowing, and are a bit more of a “purchaser” than a “doer” (I’m sad right now I’m more of the latter than the former), she has quite a few of her own hangings in her online shop for you to peruse (and purchase) at your leisure. I’ll definitely be adding a few of those plant holders to my shopping cart. But I mean, come on, who doesn’t want to get their DIY on in the barn in Tivoli with a bunch of other lovely ladies.
Her Instagram is also BEAUTIFUL, weird and overall inspiring. Follow along HERE.
That bench is so pretty. It would look pretty darn killer at the end of my bed.
Thank you so much Emily Katz, for letting us feature your beautiful work in the book. The first round of printing left off the crediting of the homeowners which was nauseating (thank God there have been 5 rounds of printing since), so I want to make sure that all of you who have that first edition of the book know that Emily and her partner designed their house, and they did it beautifully.
