Happy Friday, everyone! (I like keeping normal weekly traditions despite things being anything but normal). So yes, it’s Friday and we have a pretty big post for you today. We get asked all the time (and the requests have not slowed down, despite this new normal) what our go-to, favorite online shops are. And we get it. The world is filled with endless options which at times is great but more so, completely overwhelming. So we finally put together The EHD online resource guide so that if and when you are looking to buy something for your home, you can come here and feel confident about your purchases.
We have everything from big box stores to little online-only shops so that no matter what, you can find what you need. So before we get into this epic juicy list, we want to say to please only shop for what you need to make your home better for you and what you’ll use for a long time. We’re in this together and are also doing everything we can to shop smarter.
Ok, with that in mind let’s give some much-deserved love to our favorite hardworking retailers, categorized by types of home good. We laid it out so if you are looking for say, lighting, you can scroll down and they are all there in one area. Easy peasy, right.? So because of that, there are some repeats of vendors. Just know that most of these retailers have more than just one kind of good so please explore.

So without further ado, let’s get into it…
FURNITURE (and More) photo by sara ligorria-tramp | from: portland project: the living room reveal
I personally find furniture to be the most intimidating purchase (as do most people). It’s usually big, expensive, and not the easiest to return. But with our tried and true recommendations, you can rest a little easier. In alphabetical order, here we go…

Lighting photo by sara ligorria-tramp | from: arlyn’s moody dining room reveal is all about the insane power of paint
I have recently discovered that I am a lamp collector (read: hoarder). It’s truly insane since I have less than 400 square feet of home and ONE outlet in my living room. BUT good/pretty lighting is so important to a space and can be super affordable, and is an easy way to add personality. I am going to leave you until the next section because I simply can’t look at these vendors without buying a lamp I definitely don’t need…or do I? No, no I don’t. Have fun!

RUGS photo by tessa neustadt | from: our master bedroom – finally
We get asked about rug size a ton. It’s another one of those intimidating purchases because it can set the tone for the whole room. Well, now we bestow the confidence of 1000 interior designers with these here shops. Just make sure to measure your space and check out the blog posts below for our rules before you hit purchase:)

WINDOW TREATMENTS photo by sara ligorria-tramp | from: moto reveal: emily bowser’s bedroom “after” is unrecognizable from the “before”
I am never not surprised by the transformation a room goes through after simply putting up some curtains (or shades). I promise you don’t even need to be really expensive one (heck, mine are IKEA and I love them). The instant coziness that comes with a window treatment is well worth the money spent (big or small).

We are big big fans of these companies, so if you are looking either for a refresh or overall, you are covered (pun intended). Here is Emily’s all-time favorite.

I think this is my third time saying that something is an “intimidating purchase”. And while art isn’t always a large purchase, we want it more than almost any other decor piece to say something about us, right? So ya, intimidating! It’s a little peek into your real personality. Well, these awesome vendors are not only super talented but there is something here for every style and budget. Basically don’t be scared because this is a no-fail list.

If you can’t tell from the photo above I LOVE decorative objects (it’s my living room). I like to think of them as little gems around my home that make it theoretically sparkle. Plus they are texture, depth, and some weirdness which never hurts a room design. Sure these objects can seem pointless since that don’t technically have a “function”. But not a day goes by that they don’t make me happy. I’d say that’s functional enough. If you are looking for a little quirk to add to your space check out these shops…

WALLPAPER photo by tessa neustadt | from: elliot’s nursery reveal
Before I worked at Emily Henderson, I was entranced by her rooms with wallpaper. They were an explosion of joy and yet totally cohesive and not overpowering. That’s the beauty of wallpaper. It’s high risk but high reward and if you are thinking about it, DO IT and send me pics. Also, these are our favorite place to start:

We love wallpaper. How could we not!? Here are some more resources:

Ok, that is actually it. Well, for now at least. We will continue to add more vendors as we discover them or even some that we missed. So like I said, bookmark for future decor needs and hope you found this super helpful.
Question. Would you want a more reno based resource list? Like faucets, appliances, windows, flooring, doors, etc? We know that renovating isn’t an option really at the moment but if this is something you want, then we want to give it to you. Let us know in the comments and if you have any favorite retailers.
Love you, mean it.
