We really feel endlessly fortunate that in a time when our consideration spans have a tough time lasting previous a 3-minute video (responsible!) that we’ve got you all who take the time to actually learn our posts…particularly the lengthy ones. So we needed to take slightly (or really lengthy) journey down reminiscence lane and chat concerning the posts y’all spent essentially the most time studying and hopefully having fun with.
We don’t must inform you that Emily Bowser is a STAR! Her posts are relatable, partaking, and intensely entertaining. This submit, specifically, was actually enjoyable as a result of it was our first time attending to dive into the rental property which was an enormous a part of why Emily and her husband determined to purchase this place. Plus is anybody else enthusiastic about this yard reveal??? FYI this isn’t the final time she’ll be on this listing:)
This meant the world to me!! Design agony posts are so rewarding however positively take quite a lot of work as a result of we need to make certain we offer you options that may really work should you determine to take our recommendation. So once I noticed that this submit was on essentially the most minutes engaged listing it gave me hope that not solely did the individuals I used to be capable of assist get one thing out of it however possibly readers with comparable agonies did too! Did y’all just like the “private shopper” angle? I promise there will likely be extra design agony posts in 2023.
I don’t assume annnyone ought to be shocked by this submit making the listing. It’s very arduous to share errors and budgets in the case of massive renovations for hundreds of individuals to learn. I would sound like a damaged report however renovation present budgets ARE NOT REAL! Truly, wait. Once I watched Nate and Jeremiah’s present I felt that they have been fairly clear about what the house owner’s budgets may obtain after which the true worth of what they received them gifted. However let’s be actual, this present is the exception and never the rule. Hopefully, we’re shifting in a extra lifelike course with residence renovation reveals. ANYWAY, this was merely an trustworthy and juicy submit that I used to be proud that Em wrote.
The farmhouse lounge reveal that wasn’t a reveal! Simply the prettiest course of submit ever. This was clearly SO thrilling for everybody to see as a result of it felt like the primary time we have been getting near some actual reveals. Plus who doesn’t need to examine an expert designer’s design regrets? It makes us all really feel higher as a result of designing a house (or perhaps a room) is arduous. There additionally occurs to be over 400 feedback which undoubtedly stored a few of you on the positioning for just a few additional minutes:)
She’s again! This girl is aware of inform a narrative in such a compelling approach. Additionally, these posts are usually not temporary which is simply additional testomony to her capacity to interact and never not a motive why they make this listing yearly. For this submit particularly, I don’t assume anybody may have examine their sewer line situation with out their eyes bulging out of their head. Look, these are the true issues that so many owners know all too properly. I’m certain it’s reassuring that there are individuals on the web who take care of the identical shit (pun meant:)).
Now, this really wasn’t an extended submit (SUPRISE!) so it was the remark part that basically made this one a “time on submit” winner. Designing is like taking part in dominos. As soon as one piece falls, often the whole lot else is affected in an annoying approach. That is positively the case with this room and also you all have been making an attempt your finest to assist Em together with your ideas. That is one other reveal I can’t wait to see!
Yep, #3! So it was in direction of the tip of November once I received an electronic mail from Bowser with the topic line, “Shock!” Truthfully, it was the most effective emails I had gotten shortly. Not solely was it an entire weblog submit nevertheless it was an entire weblog submit from Bowser. To say it was a deal with could be an understatement. Once more, she gave us an excellent relatable submit concerning the actuality of price range constraints, design disappointment, and finally a contented ending!! I’ve a sense the reveal may make subsequent 12 months’s listing:)
Okay, okay that is getting ridiculous, Bowser. We get it, individuals love your posts and need to learn each final phrase. FYI I (and the workforce) are additionally these individuals! This one was simply as juicy as some other but additionally confirmed us some actual progress which is at all times actually thrilling. No shock right here.
I imply, this submit was so so so particular. Not solely was it BEAUTIFUL, however you possibly can additionally really feel the love and coronary heart behind this entire weekend. Sara is a really particular EHD alum and for many who have been long-time readers, I’m certain it additionally felt extraordinarily particular to get to see how Sara and her husband Mac rejoice the beginning of this lovely new chapter as a married couple. So whereas this wasn’t a brief submit I believe it was unimaginable to not stare at each photograph making us all keep for much longer. Gorgeous but so personable. If you happen to missed this one, I extremely recommend studying it asap<3
And OF COURSE, this was the longest-viewed submit!!! I imply, THE Henderson farmhouse kitchen was lastly carried out and prepared for its attractive debut! I believe we will all agree that that is an “Emily Henderson kitchen” via and thru and it was unimaginable to not pour over each photograph and skim the 250+ feedback. It nearly has an 8-minute common time on submit. For many who don’t know that’s a VERY very long time for the web. Thanks to everybody who learn the submit and liked it as a lot as we did.
So there weren’t any actual “surprises” nevertheless it’s nonetheless enjoyable to see those that made it to the highest. Hope you could have an excellent remainder of your day, possibly you need to learn a weblog submit or two, and we’ll see you tomorrow.
