SNEAK PEEK! My Home Accessory Collection Coming Oct. 5th!

I could not be more excited to FINALLY share this sneak peek into my new home accessories collection, ELEMENTS by Erin Gates,  that has been in the works for about a year now! I am so, so honored to work with a brilliant, thoughtful licensing company that not only really cares about the quality of whats going out into the market with my name on it but also gave me a ton of creative control which isn’t always the case when it comes to licensing.  It was super important to me that everything be affordable but still of good quality (for example- the pillows have down inserts and intricate details like trim and embroidery and are still $48-$68!)  I felt like a lot of affordable home decor is super trendy- for example, I could not find greek key bordered solid velvet pillows for under $100 to save my life- and so I wanted to create a line that had that classic, timeless style but with a modern edge.  In other words, things that will LAST. The pillows, poufs, candles, baskets and throws will be for sale October 5th on Wayfair and AllModern! The lighting will be released closer to the beginning of December. Of course,  I will keep you updated here with any and all new releases.  Here is just some of the collection (there are some more things I’ll show on the release date!)

Below is a great navy grouping- the lamp, baskets, pillows, throw and pouf (which is big and firm enough to actually sit on or use as an ottoman) are all from the collection!

The wide stripe pillows (also available in grey and linen colorways) here are based on the chair from the cover of my book and have faux leather piping for an extra edge!  The tripod lamp, candle and throw are also all my designs as well!


My candles are so yummy- in five scents for fall/winter- hand poured in the USA and only $18!  The vessel also makes a cute makeup brush holder when the candle is done. :)


This grouping was based on my love of neutrals- with embroidered bordered pillows, beaded accent pillows and the stripe lumbar.  The lamp (stripes again, of course, after all it’s ME), throw and baskets are mine as well!


Another grouping, this time grey. :) Block print euro sham, accent pillows, throw and lamp all from the collection. That lamp is my FAVORITE- it’s amazing and available in navy, grey, white and light blue.  I think it’s perfection (and all lighting is under $120!)


My bubble glass lamp (complete with tassel pull chain) is such a go-anywhere classic and the green pillows offer a bit of color.


And of course, there is some leopard. :)

This all began with sketches and collages of my inspirations.  This was a deeply thought out collection– and the good news is, there will be many more collections over the years to come! Spring is already looking mighty fine if I do say so myself!!!

Stay tuned here for the October 5th release date!!!!  I really hope you guys like the stuff, it was all designed with you in mind, and I hope you all can find some pretty accents to add to your spaces!  I take putting my name on stuff VERY seriously, so I worked hard and am proud to be releasing these items out into the world!
