Revue de presse

"All the elements are here: glamour, wit, and inspiration. Tuck in for a stylish life." (Jonathan Adler)

"Erin Gates's incredible eye for beauty is matched only by her funny, raw, and honest voice. I am such a fan of this gifted woman and this gorgeous book." (J. Courtney Sullivan, author of The Engagements and Maine)

"Erin's book is a breath of fresh air, just like her witty, engaging, and informative blog. And unlike most decorating books, I actually read this one!" (Holly Becker, author of Decor8)

"The thing I've always loved about Erin's blog is how well she balances the personal and professional while making it fun and informational. She has translated that seamlessly into this book, where you get a sense of not only who she is but also expert design advice. And her cheetah print stairs had me at hello... followed by a quick "damn gurl!" (Emily Henderson, HGTV host)

“Of course I loved seeing the hints of David Hicks in her beautiful design work, but what struck me the most was the undecoratorly way this book is written. Hugely refreshing. Erin is a joy both in print and in person.” (India Hicks)

"Filled with her trademark no-holds-barred prose, charming anecdotes, and practical advice." (Houston Chronicle)

"Style is subjective, but the elements of style are pretty universal. Few people know this better than blogger-turned-interior designer and author Erin Gates. She wrote the book on it--literally." (Huffington Post Home)

"[Gates] has a knack for combining practical advice [...] with humorous reflection on mistakes and lessons learned over the course of her 10-year career as an interior designer." (BookPage)

"Her advice is glamorous yet practical and often served up with humor." (Washington Post)

"Its pages are full of gorgeous photographs and funny personal essays about renovation disasters and marital spats over what table to choose. Warning: You may be roped into rearranging the furniture." (RealSimple.com)

"Jam-packed with loads of fab photos as well as practical advice, lessons learned, and insight from Gates's own home renovation, as well as her work with her other design clients. (HGTV blog)

"Flip through the pages of interior designer Erin Gates's fun and informative new book..., and you'll feel like you're stepping into her new house." (Metro US)

Présentation de l'éditeur

From the rising-star designer and author of the hit blog, Elements of Style, a full-color, fully illustrated book packed with honest advice, inspiration, ideas, and lessons learned about designing a home that reflects your personality and style.

Elements of Style is a uniquely personal and practical decorating guide that shows how designing a home can be an outlet of personal expression and an exercise in self-discovery. Drawing on her ten years of experience in the interior design industry, Erin combines honest design advice and gorgeous professional photographs and illustrations with personal essays about the lessons she has learned while designing her own home and her own life—the first being: none of our homes or lives is perfect. Like a funny best friend, she reveals the disasters she confronted in her own kitchen renovation, her struggles with anorexia, her epic fight with her husband over a Lucite table, and her secrets for starting a successful blog.

Organized by rooms in the house, Elements of Style invites readers into Erin’s own home as well as homes she has designed for clients. Fresh, modern, and colorful, it is brimming glamour and style as well as advice on practical matters from choosing kitchen counter materials to dressing a bed with pillows, picking a sofa, and decorating a nursery without cartoon characters. You’ll also find a charming foreword by Erin’s husband, Andrew, and an extensive Resource and Shopping Guide that provides an indispensable a roadmap for anyone embarking on their first serious home decorating adventure. With Erin’s help, you can finally make your house your home.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 the best part of the book is the cover 24 octobre 2014
Par Libby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Honestly, the best part of the book is the cover. As a regular blog reader, I was really looking forward to getting a glimpse into Erin's client work. While her projects are certainly pretty and suitable to my taste, I am unimpressed at the diversity throughout her portfolio. Let me spare you the purchase if you're on the fence and tell you what a project consists of: Greek Key trim on curtain panels, roman shades with an accent band, a sunburst mirror, Amanda Talley artwork, X-benches in the foyer, Hermes/Prada labels, staged Hunter boots, the repeated Target gold frame, gray gray gray, Bengal Bazaar, Jiri Ikat, and a sputnik chandelier for the win. The redundancy is apparent.

Would I love my house to incorporate all of those things? Sure - and I do, and I love them. I'm not saying she has bad taste. The book simply exhibits a lower level of design innovation, and I do not consider this to be even close in the ranks of other published designers. I want to be inspired by unexpected design applications when I read a design book. I don't want to recognize every trendy product, or read something that I, an amateur, would already think to do myself.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful book, but too formulaic for my taste. 15 novembre 2014
Par Pax Deo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This book is beautifully produced with many high quality photos and good text. Why don't I love it?? Because it seems that all the rooms featured are pretty much the same formula: a statue, a couple of nice trays, good traditional or semi-traditional furniture. I don't consider myself incredibly avant-garde, but I would have enjoyed seeing a bit more variety and experimentation.

Now what I had expected. I had heard so many things about this book and expected the text and pictures to be higher quality.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Preppy new england style pretty much sums up all of the photos 13 octobre 2014
Par BDS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I follow Erin's blog daily and was very excited to get my hands on this book. Although I thought the writing was well done and funny- I just didn't feel as though this was something I wanted on my coffee table. Preppy new england style pretty much sums up all of the photos. Great for some, just not for me. I returned it.

Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I always look forward to Erin's blog each morning with my cup of coffee. This book lives up to everything I expected from Erin and more. It's fun to read and I can't put it down! Great info and pictures to illustrate the text. It's the best source for my style decorating I have purchased by far. Great job Erin!
