If you’ve been following Design Star this season, then you know that tonight’s show is the big finale.  I generally loathe reality tv, but I’ve been hooked on HGTV’s Design Star all season.

I was so excited when I heard that one of the contestants would be a prop stylist that I’ve worked with on editorial projects.  Emily Henderson is an amazingly talented prop stylist with a beautiful eye and she’s just an all-around nice person.  So, of course, I’m thrilled that she has made it to the final two.  And I hope she kicks Michael’s butt tonight.

Emily also has a wonderful blog called The Brass Petal, which you should check out asap to get your design fix, regardless of tonight’s results.   Below is a photo of Emily’s own blue velvet sofa.  I wish she would come over and style mine, but I think she’s a tad too busy these days.
