I had such a fantastic night last night at the gorgeous Canvas Home celebrating the book with my NYC peeps! And another stop means another outfit…
Skirt- Alice & Olivia // sweater- Madewell // Shoes- Valentino (old, similar here for way less) // Bag- Gigi New York // Necklace- J.Crew (old- similar here) // Sunglasses- TJ Maxx
Andrew was busy entertaining the line of readers with, most likely, embarrassing stories about me. He’s like my warm up act on tour. :) I’m so jealous of his streamlined “man uniform” of jeans (Bonobos– great for tall guys), shirt (also Bonobos) and blazer (Banana). Men have it so much easier!
The line was to the door! And I was so happy to meet longtime readers, new readers, e-design clients and old friends there!
Some of my family in NYC came out to support (and check out the amazing wall of dinnerware behind us….the gold rim situation is to die for).
Wine and books make for a lovely evening…. I signed 12 copies that they are keeping for sale in the store in case you couldn’t make it!
We stayed at the small and charming Jade Hotel right nearby- so adorable!
Some fun design details from the room!
I loooooove these windows and the beautiful architecture outside them!!!
And now we’re off to D.C. for a signing tonight at Jonathan Adler in Georgetown from 6-8 p.m.! Hope to see you there!
Find the book at Barnes & Noble and also check IndieBound for local bookstores that are carrying it!
I enjoy the particular helpful information a person source on your own content articles. I am going to bookmark your website in addition to examine once more listed here generally. I’m modestly selected I’m going to discover numerous innovative information proper here! Enjoy for the following!
You look fabulous (of course)! Love these posts- just wish you were traveling to my city too. :)
Whoa!! Do you two ever look fantastic…what a gorgeous couple! Your tour sounds like it is off to a great start! franki
Just received your book & am in love. It’s fantastic and worth the wait! The layouts are lovely, the rooms gorgeous, and your writing is so inspiring. Beautiful choices. Congratulations Erin! Love following your tour & your fantastic outfits. You have a great eye and such a warm heart that comes through in everything you share. Hope that you have the time of your life.
I’m sitting outside on a beautiful day in San Diego reading your book. I love the writing style and your humor comes through. I’ve followed your blog for several years and feel ‘proud’ that your book is so well done. Great job!
So fun to finally meet in person. Good luck with the rest of the tour! xx
Where did your blogroll go? Put it back? I think it’s great to link to other blogs you like! Am I not seeing it? Tour looks so fun- still high from last week’s signing and your foreword was basically my inner dialogue when I had to be ripped out of Boston. I too was hysterical and full-on freaked. But it had to be done. It was funny reading it in print, did a double-take like umm, this is exactly what I was thinking!!!!
So fun to make all these book signing stops with you, and omgosh can you and Andrew get any cuter? I think not. Gorgeous young couple, enjoy these special, special moments toghether, you have worked so hard, this is all very well deserved!! You book is sitting proudly and beautifully on my family room ottoman. Only wish it had your signature handwriting!! Happy trip!!
Perfectly content rainy Saturday reading Elements of Style. Erin, your fine taste and sense of humor make for an exceptional read. I find myself chuckling page by page as I’m in the midst of a complete home renovation. Enjoy your tour!
Erin, I just finished your book, and I have to say I am totally blown away by the quality, your client projects, your honesty and relate-ability. This is one of the only books as a designer/blogger that really speaks to me and our aesthetic . Have a wonderful tour and thanks for sharing your life with us. I am so proud of you and this book!!! xo Nancy
Woohoo! Love that skirt on you, by the way.
You look georgeous. So happy for your success. I haven’t received my book I pre- ordered ( whenever that was~like June maybe??)! )-: anyone else not receive theirs yet?
Wish I could have been there! I’ll just read your book inspiration from afar :)
Enjoy every minute of your book launch. Here in Weston, Florida, I’m enjoying you book page by page. It’s impeccable!!! Congrats!!!

Did you pick your tour hotels by bathroom color schemes? Black and white … only lacking a marble floor . Looking forward to future stops (and outfits!). It’s like Fashion Friday all week long!
Oh my gosh, I was so excited to see the fitted skirt with the black Madewell sweater. I just bought a super fitted skirt and want to pair it with a black, chunky sweater. I was looking at Madewell’s sweaters since they’re 30% off. Totally buying now. Thanks! You look awesome by the way.
Just got my book last night and couldn’t put it down. Thanks for all the hard work!
Just received my book yesterday! Beautiful photos, great reading, excellent pointers….Thank you. So thrilled, but not at all surprised with your success. All the best on your tour!
