Erin Gates, Elements of Style - Book release party!!

Today, I am BEYOND excited to share my dear friend Erin Gate's fabulous new interior design book, Elements of Style: Designing a Home & a Life, from Simon & Schuster. The book was released on 10.7.2014 and is available to purchase here.

Erin and I go way back. We met at our first design job in Boston, that was over ten years ago and we have been friends ever since! Over the years Erin has built a wildly successful design blog, business. and now has released her first book.

Elements of Style : Designing a Home and a Life, beautifully mixes cohesive designs, practical advice and her witty voice/stories. The looks are attainable and fabulous. Each one layered with amazing details and the perfect amount of glamour. Erin also chronicles her own home renovation which you can also read about on her blog. I highly suggest this book for yourself and as a gift for the upcoming holidays. Trust me when I say you'll gobble up every bit of it!! 
I'm so proud of you Erin, it has been a joy watching and sharing in your journey! You deserve every bit of this fame, my beautiful, talented friend....Much love, Julie (I  just teared up) xoxo

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the book release party at West Elm in Boston. Here's a peek inside Erin's book and some photographs from the event! Enjoy!

I just missed you - I was stuck in line and wanted to come by and say hi! When I finished you were gone. It was so fun!

So excited that I get to attend Erin's book signing in NYC tomorrow evening! Agree, it is a fabulous book of design and such an accomplishment. By the way, I love your outfit, Julie!

Looks like fun! I follow both of your blogs so neat to see y'all together. Any chance you can share where your pants are from Julie? Are they coated denim or leather? Seeking a great pair of faux leather pants/leggings or something similar but trying to avoid any bagginess...yours look great! Cheers! said...

is this book about fashion and interior design?

Nice share lady.
