Behind-the-Scenes | EOH at Home

October 6th, 2014

Take a look inside the lovely home of our husband/wife team, Emily & Wade! Get to know a little more about the world of EOH with this behind-the-scenes tour shot by the generous writer, Claire Gibson. Claire interviewed Emily for StyleBlueprint about the Art of Letter-writing plus she featured a tour of their home one her blog! Today we’re giving you a full look at this pretty home + studio shoot…

Emily’s big white desk is a lovely, clean backdrop for all of her design ideas to unfold. The gorgeous natural light that spills in each morning is all the inspiration a gal needs to grab a cup of coffee and get to work. Emily’s studio space is simple + light providing an uncluttered space for her to design, shoot, print, and tackle all the details that go into running EOH with her husband and partner, Wade, who has an office down the hall. She admits that it rarely looks this pristine but the all white room is refreshing and inspiring clean or cluttered!

The space doubles as a guest bedroom when dear friends or family come for a visit to Nash. Stripey sackcloth pillows add a rougher vintage edge to the frilly feminine bedding layered in white. If they’re lucky, guests get a sneak peek at whatever designs may be brewing in the EOH studio, too!

Emily’s desk is topped with reminders of why she does what she does as a busy working mama + wife + small biz owner + friend. She keeps decor to a minimum in order to spread out designs and paper samples as she creates throughout the workday. Fresh blooms & framed portraits are all the extra touches her space needs to feel personal yet functional.

This nook is one of the coziest spots in the Holmes house! Chocolate brown leather chairs frame a fun red table + union jack flag rug in muted gray tones. The impressive book collection adds color + meaning to the room as Wade is an avid reader & constant learner. It is no surprise that this space ends up being one of the natural gathering areas in the home. Perfect for catching up with a friend over tea or just playing with toddler Elsie on the floor!

The master bedroom is a cozy + tranquil get away from their work world just down the hall. The gorgeous beamed wood ceilings take center stage and support a chandelier updated with a coat of white paint & fun round bulbs. The rest of the space is kept modern with varying textures in the rustic wood chest that her father refurnished, black metal sconces, and a geometric grey & white cowhide rug. This is a great space to unwind at the end of a long day juggling family, friends, and a small biz.

And finally, we have little Elsie’s room! This tot is full of personality + spunk and she has a room to prove it. Rather than going with overly stuffy or feminine decor, Emily kept things interesting with a richer color palette and playful details. There is lots of bold pattern mixing from the stylized chevron carpet to the navy dotted sheets to the aztec wool blanket resting on her rocker. Art hanging above the crib was created by Emily in college, old shelving from Elsie’s grandfather’s office and keepsakes from the house Emily grew up in fill the room.  Thoughtful + sentimental touches are sprinkled throughout like a framed set of vintage playing cards and an antique gold tray holding a photo of Elsie’s grandparents.

Thanks for sharing your home with us, Emily & Wade! It’s so fun to get a feel for where the EOH magic happens. Click on over to the StyleBlueprint feature for a few more photos + words from Emily on the Art of Letter-writing.

Sweet Babe Photos + Birth Announcements!

May 20th, 2014

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes hubby with a baby carriage! So many beautiful weddings already this summer and so many preg bellies popping out everywhere! In honor of summertime babes, here are some gems from our 2 month photo shoot with Elsie and inspiration for birth announcements! Love the above pics of Wade changing E’s diaper. So many rolls, so much love! Thanks to the talented Camille Blinn for the photos – she is going to take new photos for us soon!!! We’ll try to post them quicker next time, seeing as Elsie is almost 8 mo. old!

Here are some of our happy birth announcements! Please contact EOH if you have a bundle-of-joy on the way! We would love to help announce your beautiful, new arrival! We can personalize any design on the website with different colors, fonts and motifs OR we can create a custom card perfect for your little one! A few mom’s that have been on top of it {this gal not included} have ordered their cards before the babe arrives and even addressed their envelopes! Afterwards, all we have to do is insert the photo and print! Just an idea; though, no judging here if you contact us when your little one is no longer a newborn… ours went out when she was 3 months old and the pic was from her 2 month photo shoot – whoops!

And finally, the below have to be my all time fav! I’ve always wanted little nude booty shots….and do you know what happens when you take a diap off a little baby – yup! She was relieved and I was wet, but we got some great photos out of it! After that, E was getting super sleepy which led to some cuddly moments. Love this girl and her daddy!
