Get Design Tips From Emily

After many years of traveling the world, Tea co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, Emily Meyer, has acquired an eye for worldly design. Her Palo Alto home, which she shares with her husband, Hilton and two children, Clement (6) and Georgia (4) is living proof! In their April issue, Family Circle featured Emily and her family in their eclectic space – Don’t miss her design tips!


With each trip Emily takes, whether it’s scouting inspiration for the next Tea season or visiting family abroad, she makes sure to find bazaars to search for treasures to bring back home. “I love pulling a design scheme together with exotic objects and textiles.” says Emily. Their home, built in 1908, has been transformed with a bold palatte, peppered with well-traveled finds – a Turkish Ikat pillow, a Mailan coverlet.

And the Emmy goes to…

“For this year’s Emmys, my inspiration started with the elegant oversized sash worn with traditional Japanese robes. The dress has a delicate bateau neckline with a graduated hem skirt, and we added a dramatic knotted tie to captivate on the red carpet. 

We were delighted to have found this beautiful floral silk ikat, as Aubrey’s favorite colors are pink and purple – I just knew it would make the perfect accent to the lavender silk satin dress. It is sophisticated yet sweet, the perfect complement to Aubrey’s spirited charm.”  Emily Meyer, Co-Founder & Chief Creative Officer of Tea Collection
