creator of Emily Alder. A Laguna Beach native, married to Matt, and mother to Thomas, Henry, and Ella.
Emily is a full time mom, part time designer, and interior design student. She won’t say no to a glass of rosé or a cheese plate (but who wouldn’t right?). The feeling of the wisp of a wave crashing soothes her soul. 90 percent of the time you’ll find her barefoot and her hair up in a knot running after her little brood. The other 10 she spends here writing the days away.
THE BLOG // Emily began blogging in 2010 at CBI. It started as a creative outlet and way to share stories with family and friends. But it turned into a collection of designs, inspirations, and thoughts. While growing her blog, Emily’s family grew as well. In 2014 they welcomed twins and became a family of five.
In 2015, Emily created and curated a new site that would encompass pieces of CBI combined with a fresh design outlook.
ALDER // is a deep rooted family name that has always held a strong connection for Emily. It symbolizes all things she holds most dear… family, love, strength, history. Combined with an appreciation for design, writing, and well a beautiful lifestyle.
Stay good & say hello…
