ABOUT EMREE COLLECTIVE

Thank you for visiting The Emree Collective (previously Defined Designs), an interior design focused lifestyle brand based out of Charlotte, North Carolina. I believe that your home should be a reflection of who you are. While you’re here, I want to inspire you to explore your personal style and how it is reflected within your home and how you live. Throughout The Emree Collective you’ll find a peek into my personal style and hopefully you can find some inspiration here.

While this little corner of the internet originally started out of a desire to keep up with the ever-changing world of design after college, it has turned into so much more in the past years. Defined Designs turned 5 years old in July 2018, and the evolution into The Emree Collective was such a natural change. My belief still stands, that a beautifully designed space doesn’t have to come with an expensive price tag… and my love for pillows and textiles still runs strong. The Emree Collective gives me the ability to share more and connect with my readers and favorite brands on another level. I’m so happy to be back with a shiny new look!

ABOUT EMMA

I was born and raised in New Hampshire but I have called Charlotte, North Carolina home for almost 6 years now. I’m so excited to share my passion for design with you all, continuing my how-to guides perfect for both renters and new home owners out there looking for a little help. I love to relax with country music and my sewing machine. I’m a lover of all things served in a copper mug and can usually be found wrapped up in a blanket no matter what time of year it is.

EMMA’S HOME STYLE:

A solid mix between Joanna Gaines and California Modern… almost boho, but not too boho. I’m all over the place. That’s the designer in me. I’m all about layering neutrals and textures.

DEFINED DESIGNS SHOP: Defined Designs is where Emma makes throw pillows. Her motto is “Pillows are like potato chips… you can’t just have one.” You can find everything from upholstery grade fabrics to authentic indigo and mudcloth pillows – even some custom designs when they’re available.

I love hearing from my readers. It is such a joy to hear from you all and know that I have helped and inspired my readers to make their house feel like a home again! I love to give advice and help out with anything that you may be searching for or even if you are just in need of some inspiration within your home. Feel free to comment on a post that strikes your fancy or shoot me an email with any questions you may have. Shopping for home decor is my weakness (and there’s a good chance I know the inventory at Target, West Elm, and Crate and Barrel by heart..) Whatever it may be – I’m up for the challenge!
