    Elements of Style is a very personal and practical decorating book that demonstrates how designing a house can be a creative release and a journey of self-discovery. 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 of which is that none of our homes or lives are perfect. She discusses the problems she encountered during her own kitchen makeover, her struggles with anorexia, her epic dispute with her husband over a Lucite table, and her strategies for launching a successful blog, much like a witty best friend.

    Elements of Style, which is organized by room in the house, takes readers into Erin's personal home as well as residences she has created for others. It is packed with luxury and style as well as practical guidance on everything from choosing kitchen counter materials to dressing a bed with pillows, selecting a sofa, and decorating a nursery sans cartoon characters. There's also a beautiful preface by Erin's husband, Andrew, and a comprehensive Resource and Shopping Guide that's a must-have for anyone embarking on their first significant home design expedition. You may finally make your house your home with Erin's assistance.
